The Jets are now 17-8-5 on the season and went winless on this three game road trip.
For those who would like to take a deeper dive into the advanced stats here are the results from tonight’s game via Natural Stat Trick.
– Kyle Connor scored his 10th goal of season;
– Blake Wheeler picked up his 30th assist of the season;
– Nikolaj Ehlers scored his 13th of season.
Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien left the game in the 3rd period and coach Maurice was asked post-game about his status “We’ll take a look at Dustin tomorrow. I don’t have anything for you.” When asked if it was lower-body the coach added “correct” and whether it had anything to do with the injury 33 suffered earlier in the year “Not that I know of. No, he had healed completely from his earlier injury.”
Coach Maurice: Thoughts on the game. Going down to four defencemen and is there an update on Byfuglien? How did his team measure up against Tampa Bay? Thoughts on the Jets structure? Jets play 5 on 5. Thoughts on Jets play in OT this season.
