Game 50: Jets vs. Bruins pre-game report

A look at the game 50 projected lineup along with pre-game audio.

The Jets lost to the Flyers in Philadelphia last night but won’t have any time to lick their wounds as they are in Boston tonight to take on a Bruins team that will be without goalie Tuukka Rask who is on Injured Reserve (concussion) and Jaroslav Halak is expected to start in net for the Bruins. Connor Hellebuyck will be back in net for the Jets and the expectation based on what Coach Maurice indicated yesterday is that Ben Chiarot will be back in the starting line-up as well.

We’ll have to wait to hear from the coach later this afternoon for confirmation of this and which defenceman will come out of the lineup if Chiarot is good to go. For now the projected lineup is the same lineup from last night with the exception that the goalies for the Jets have been swapped.

Coach Maurice:  Lineup news.  Is it a good thing they are back in action right away?  Is there one focal point on their game?  On Hellebuyck getting back into the net.  Is there any advantage to playing last night with Boston having not played since before the player and all-star breaks?  On Chiarot getting back into the lineup.  What is it like right now with the trade deadline approaching?  On extra guys in warmup.
