Game 12: Jets vs Blues pre-game report

A look at the game 12 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

Lots of questions coming into today as the Jets were without Mark Scheifele, Paul Stastny and then Nikolaj Ehlers left practice early yesterday. As well Connor Hellebuyck seemed to be pushing to return but Paul Maurice didn’t tip his hand.
