Coach Maurice:  On making adjustments, will Vegas try to beat them the same way Nashville tried to beat them?  Why has the team been so good at adjusting so they haven’t lost two games in a row?  On the Winnipeggers coming to Vegas.  A small market having success in the NHL.  On the evolution of his relationship with Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff.  On the type of player the Jets have in Josh Morrissey.

The Jets have gone from a team with seven injured players to two (Appleton & Gustafsson) but that number grew to three when defenceman Dylan DeMelo was added to the list.
