Via Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun:
No Patrik Laine and No Dustin Byfuglien at skate. We will have to wait to hear from coach Maurice to find out what their status is. Update: Byfuglien isn’t playing. Laine is under the weather and will be a game time decision.
Coach Maurice: Status update on Byfuglien and Laine. What does he hope to see against Vancouver? On the shorthanded chances the Jets have given up this season. On why the Jets are so often shorthanded. On the Jets positioning and penalties. On the Jets ‘big heavy game’ of the past. How much of this (being shorthanded) impacted Dustin Byfuglien? How does he keep the players engaged (both now and overall)? Is it still a chore to get the team up for games that don’t have any impact on the standings?
