Note:  The Jets were in British Columbia on Friday but didn’t hold a practice so we will have to wait to see if there will be any further changes to the lineup.  Coach Maurice indicated after the game in San Jose on Thursday that he was hoping to have Adam Lowry back in the lineup tonight.  Check out the pre-game report for the latest news and audio ahead of the game with puck drop at 9:00 pm.
