Notes for next game:

Coach Maurice confirms that Connor Hellebuyck starts in net on Thursday in Pittsburgh.

Health update:

Coach Maurice was asked about Adam Lowry and indicated that he “skated again this morning on his own.  He’ll make the trip but I would have him as possible for playing on the trip,  I wouldn’t list him as probable yet.  He’s gotta get into a full contact practice and feel strong before we do that.”

Coach Maurice:  Update on Adam Lowry.  His thought process on the Jets bottom six.  Does Brendan Lemieux’s first game get him a second one against Pittsburgh?  Is the bottom six partly reflective on the Jets opponent?  What does Enstrom’s presence mean for a young team?  Anticipate any bad blood from the hit Enstrom took last year?  Flipping the schedule from a break to seven games in nine days.  Challenge to getting the jump back in first game back.  On the benefit of the schedule.  Hellebucyk starts?
