The big question following the game was the status of Dustin Byfuglien who left the game with a lower-body injury. “I’ll have something for you tomorrow” which sounded ominous or he could simply not have had anything additional to add. Either way status of 33 will be updated on site.
The Jets are scheduled to practice tomorrow at 11 AM at the IcePlex before they head to Edmonton to close out 2018 on New Years Eve. Be sure to start your day with the AM papers at 7 am on illegalcurve.com.
