ST. LOUIS - Paul Maurice liked what he saw on Saturday night so expect no changes when the Jets face the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night in Missouri.

"I went back and watched the video (of Saturday’s 3-1 win over the Nashville Predators) and usually when I do that we’re never as good or as bad as I thought we were after the game," said Maurice. "I had a pretty high opinion of how we played and after watching the video it didn’t change. It was one of our best games on the season in a lot of ways."

Michael Frolik stretched his current point streak to a career-best six straight games (4G, 2A) against Nashville and is approaching the Jets longest streak of the season of eight games by Mathieu Perreault.

Michael Frolik stretched his current point streak to a career-best six straight games (4G, 2A) against Nashville and is approaching the Jets longest streak of the season of eight games by Mathieu Perreault.

Maurice confirmed today that centre Bryan Little would not be available to the Jets on Tuesday, and he used the same lines in practice as he did on Saturday night in Nashville.

Maurice was asked when he planned on using goalie Ondrej Pavelec again but would only say, "I have a plan, kind of, in my head."

Rookie Michael Hutchinson has started six straight and 13 of the last 17 for the Jets and with the club in a battle for a post-season berth it seems rather unlikely Maurice will be straying from what’s been working.

Hutchinson has picked up points in nine of his last 10 starts.

Hutchinson currently leads all rookie goaltenders with 20 wins on the season. He has a record of 20-8-5 with a 2.30 goals against average and .918 save percentage.

Forward Michael Frolik opened the scoring in Nashville and stretched his current point streak to a career-best six straight games (4G, 2A). Frolik is approaching the Jets longest streak of the season of eight games by Mathieu Perreault.

Tyler Myers had an assist against the Preds and now has two goals and eight points in 10 games wearing a Jets jersey.
