The Jets look to salvage this road trip with a win tonight in St. Louis after dropping two of three on this four-game road trip. Questions abound about the status of Andrew Copp who left the game in the 3rd period and whether Sami Niku could draw onto the back end. Without a morning skate it may not be clear until we hear from coach Maurice (or see a recall from the Moose). Stay tuned.
Having played yesterday in St. Paul no skate ahead of the game. We will likely hear from coach Maurice ahead of puck drop.
Coach Maurice has indicated that Andrew Copp suffered a concussion.
With Copp out Brendan Lemieux is back in the lineup. Laurent Brossoit is in net.
Projected Jets lines, D pairs and goalie:
Coach Maurice: Who starts in goal? What went into this decision? Any other lineup changes? Last night’s game and getting a chance to get back into it tnt. See anything new with the Blues under new coach? Mentality shift. On the Jets third pairing. Any thought of switching around the pairings. Passing of Mick McGeough.
Puck drop is at 6:00 PM. Be sure to head over to illegalcurve.com following the game for a recap of the action which includes post-game audio from the Jets room as well as from coach Maurice.
