The Jets were feeling good until the Stars came to town on Saturday and stopped their three-game win streak in its tracks. The Devils had been humming along but injuries to Jack Hughes and Nico Hischier have brought that red-hot start to a more mild temperature.
New Jersey has somewhat of an unusual schedule right now. They played host to the Capitals in The Garden State last Friday, flew to Winnipeg on Monday for tonight’s game before they head back east to Pennsylvania to face Pittsburgh on Thursday.
No changes for the Jets this morning at skate.
Logan Stanley was on the ice for warm-up as was David Gustafsson. Jets going 11/7.
