As per Mitchell Clinton of Jets TV defenceman Nathan Beaulieu isn’t skating this morning. We shall have to wait and see what coach Paul Maurice says about his status following skate.
Jets Projected Lines, D pairs:
Coach Maurice: Update on Nathan Beaulieu? What will he be looking for from Carl Dahlstrom as he gets back into the lineup? Kyle Connor’s ability to score in different ways. What is an underappreciated part of Kyle Connor’s game? What is the next level for Kyle Connor? Did the three central division games help get his group back to the game he wants? How does he try to carry over what they did against the Eastern Conference teams? What are the factors that have put the Jets in a playoff spot at this point in the season? Is it tough to gain reinforcement when guys have to sustain pain instead of highlight reel play?
