The Jets held an optional practice on Saturday so we didn’t get any insight into their potential roster for game 2 although it is likely to remain the same. We will find out today and for now the projected lines and D pairs based on the last game.
AM Skate Notes:
Via Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun we learn “Looks like all healthy players present and accounted for at #NHLJets morning skate. Mathieu Perreault is in the non-contact jersey. Connor Hellebuyck sticking to his routine of skipping the am skate”.
Projected lines and D pairs:
Extra: Matthias, Dano, Morrow, Poolman and Hutchinson.
Injured: Armia, Perreault.
Coach Maurice: Trying to get greedy for another win. What has Enstrom brought in his return? Strength of the Nashville board play. Status of Joel Armia? Outside of Winnipeg is Mark Scheifele a superstar in the shadow? How has Steve Mason handled his role? Is there a way to measure the impact Mason has had on Hellebuyck? On Hellebuyck staring down the camera pre-game and the intensity he approaches a game.
