The Jets left Carolina with a 4-1 loss and a three game losing streak. It won’t be an easy conclusion to the pre All-Star portion of their schedule as they conclude things in Columbus against a Blue Jackets team that has won five straight games and are 8-2-0 in their last 10 games. They’ve also been good at Nationwide Arena this season going 15-9-2.
No morning skate for the Jets.
Coach Maurice indicated on Tuesday that Laurent Brossoit will get the start in net tonight. He also indicated that Kristian Vesalainen could be a player for the Jets but wouldn’t confirm that the Jets 2017 1st rounder would be getting into his first NHL game of the 2019-20 season.
As per Jamie Thomas of Jets TV there will be no lineup changes other than Brossoit starting.
