Game 72: Jets vs. Wild pre-game report

A look at the game 72 projected lineups and audio.

Wild at Jets

The Jets won’t skate today in advance of the 4 pm puck drop.  Assumption is they will use the same forward lines that they did against the Islanders on Thursday.  D pairs will be different with injury news that Paul Postma is day-to-day and Jacob Trouba will need about a week still before he is ready to go.  The Jets called up Brian Strait from the Moose and coach Maurice indicated yesterday he’d play with “old guy” Josh Morrissey.  Presumption is Connor Hellebuyck will make his 16th consecutive start in net.
