The Winnipeg Jets, for the 15th time in the franchise’s 17 years, have been eliminated from playoff contention. They really can’t even play a spoiler role tonight.
None of that means that the Blues should ignore them. The Jets play a hard game, and the Blues haven’t played well against them this season - disappointingly, the team has only gotten one point so far this season against the Jets, and that was back on December 3rd.
It’s ok, though. Jori Lehtera has said he’s ready to come back!
While I’m sure everyone’s thrilled for his health’s sake, the team has been playing so well without him, it raises a question of where in the line-up he fits. If anywhere.
This is your morning-ish open thread (I’m on spring break. So sue me). Check back later on for your usual slate of home game goodies - only one more home game to go before the playoffs begin.
