Game 61: Jets vs. Blues pre-game report

A look ahead to game 61 for the Jets.

Jets at Blues Oct 2013

After a strong ten-game home stand (6-3-1) at Bell MTS Place the Jets are on the road for a back-to-back set beginning with division rival St. Louis.  Tonight is the first of three straight games against the division (Blues, Stars & Preds).  The Blues are sitting seven points back of Winnipeg.

Coach Maurice confirmed that Michael Hutchinson would backup Connor Hellebuyck, who will be making his tenth straight start for the Jets.

Morning skate notes:

According to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun it looks like Connor Hellebuyck has resumed not skating during morning skates to “stay fresh”.  Ken reports that he is joined this morning for maintenance by Dustin Byfuglien.

Jets lines, D pairs and goalies:

Connor – Scheifele – Wheeler
Perreault – Little – Roslovic
Ehlers – Copp – Laine

Coach Maurice:  How does he approach this weekend?  Is the central even crazier this year?  Does seeding matter much in the central?  Feeling the pressure as the post-season approaches.  Will he be relieved to get past Trade Deadline day?
