Jets held an optional but coach Maurice confirmed no lineup changes other than Pavelec starting for Winnipeg:
Blake Wheeler: What can Pavelec bring to this team? Nice to have a familiar face back in the room? Happy to see Burmistrov get a chance with the Coyotes? What did they learn about the Coyotes last Friday? Was their a message sent or received in Pavelec’s return?
Shawn Matthias: What did he like about the last 30 minutes in the game against Arizona and how can they bring that into tonight’s game? What can bringing in a veteran like Pavelec do for the team? Has the room been able to stay together? Taking advantage of this home stand.
Coach Maurice: Patrik Laine skated this AM (statement). Still cannot set a timetable? Advice for his goalie tonight? Thoughts on Burmistrov starting for the Coyotes tonight? Any other lineup changes? On how long was Laine out there for?
