Winnipeg Jets Playoff Practice Report

Check out the latest from the Jets practice at the IcePlex.

Paul Maurice availability

The Jets are back in business after flying home from Arizona on Sunday after concluding the regular season on Saturday night against the Coyotes.

Practice Notes:

It was a highly attended optional today to kick off the playoffs for the Jets.  Only players missing were Brandon Tanev, Dustin Byfuglien, Dmitry Kulikov, Bryan Little, Adam Lowry and Ben Chiarot.  Connor Hellebuyck was on another sheet of ice working with goalie coach Wade Flaherty.

Coach Maurice:  Any concern with the players who didn’t skate?  Status of Brandon Tanev?  What is he going to do with Josh Morrissey? Will he ease Morrissey right back into it?  Is it a straight swap with Morrissey and Beaulieu (and his overall game).  What’s his day like today and getting the team ready to focus on a singular opponent?  Is it different preparing for the Blues?  What did Connor Hellebuyck learn from last year’s playoff run?  On adapting to the emotional level of playoffs?  Does his team have a switch to flip now?  How would he describe Hellebuyck’s current game?  On his personality rising to challenge of the playoffs.  On the pressure goalies face in the playoffs.  What can they do psychologically to get into the head of a rookie goalie?  Does he feel like 55/26 are “back”?  On the play of Par Lindholm.  How much of this series is top line vs top line?

Health Update:

Coach Maurice indicated that Brandon Tanev is day-to-day and will not be playing game one.
