PHILADELPHIA—The Winnipeg Jets have worn out the carpet between their dressing room and the infirmary. And so, when any player – and particularly, a defenceman – is missing from practice the alarm bells immediately start clanging.

Such was the case Wednesday in Philly, when both Dustin Byfuglien and Jacob Trouba were no shows at the club’s practice at the University of Pennsylvania.

Jets fans can exhale: maintenance days for both after Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

And that is going to become more the norm as the Jets hit the juicy part of their season.

PHILADELPHIA—The Winnipeg Jets have worn out the carpet between their dressing room and the infirmary. And so, when any player – and particularly, a defenceman – is missing from practice the alarm bells immediately start clanging.

Such was the case Wednesday in Philly, when both Dustin Byfuglien and Jacob Trouba were no shows at the club’s practice at the University of Pennsylvania.

Jets fans can exhale: maintenance days for both after Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

And that is going to become more the norm as the Jets hit the juicy part of their season.

"They’re all fine. Nothing to worry about," said Jets coach Paul Maurice. "You’re going to see an awful lot of this — anybody that’s got something that could get better with a day’s rest, they won’t (practice). We’ll have guys on the ice that are more banged up but it’s just not getting better so they’ve just got to deal with it. We’re pretty healthy."

The Jets spent some time going over the mistakes in Tuesday’s loss, a result which ended a five-game win streak, before even taking the ice on the Penn campus. Their first period was awful, the rest, not so bad. And now the key is to ensure the loss doesn’t extend into two, three and four games beginning Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"The start wasn’t really there," said Jets winger Michael Frolik of the opening 20 minutes against the Pens. "We kind of found our game back in the second and the third period was pretty good. We battled hard after that and were good on the forecheck. After the (All-Star) break it’s not easy. We just want to keep it simple.

"That’s what we’ve tried to build here, having that consistency in our defensive game That’s the key. We proved to ourselves that we can play that game. We just need to get back on the horse and have that push for the rest of the season."

Michael Hutchinson is expected to start in goal for the Jets against the Flyers. Steve Mason was to get the start for the Flyers, but he was pressed into action Tuesday against the Arizona Coyotes after Ray Emery struggled.
