Game 60: Jets vs Blues pre-game report

A look at the projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

The Jets are looking to end their road trip with a win this evening in St. Louis against a Blues team that sit 13 points ahead of them in the standings. The Blues beat up the Predators 7-4 on Saturday afternoon in Nashville.

Biggest question marks for the Jets ahead of morning skate is which goalie will get the start and whether Ville Heinola may get into the lineup.

Morning skate:

As per Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet the question as to which goalie is expected to start appears to have been answered with Connor Hellebuyck going through his regular starter routine. Wieber also indicated that all healthy players are taking part including Neal Pionk who has been skipping practices and morning skates of late as he was “managing” something.  Lastly he also adds that the lines and D pairs will remain the same.
