The Jets are hitting the ice one last time before they take off for Edmonton later today. Last night’s 5-2 win over the Oilers saw them conclude a very successful homestand which saw them go 5-1-1.
Head coach Paul Maurice advised during his availability that veteran forward Paul Stastny will not make the road trip with the team as he continues to recover from the friendly fire shot he took in the game against the Islanders on the 6th of November.
