SUNRISE, Fla. — The Winnipeg Jets provided no update on centre Bryan Little Friday after the veteran was injured and couldn’t complete Thursday’s game in Tampa, a 6-5 shootout loss to the Lightning.

Little, who was off balance and skating through the neutral zone late in the second period, was felled by a hit to the head from Tampa Bay defenceman Anton Stralman.

The NHL decided not to convene a hearing on the blow. Stralman wasn’t penalized for that check, nor for sticking out his leg and dropping Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers a few moments prior to that.

The Jets were livid about the two non-calls. Coach Paul Maurice was assessed a bench minor for arguing moments after Little was injured, then he was ejected to start the third period when referee Francois St. Laurent stood near the Jets bench when the players arrived for the final period and stared at Maurice with his arms folded.

Hey there, time traveller!

SUNRISE, Fla. — The Winnipeg Jets provided no update on centre Bryan Little Friday after the veteran was injured and couldn’t complete Thursday’s game in Tampa, a 6-5 shootout loss to the Lightning.

Little, who was off balance and skating through the neutral zone late in the second period, was felled by a hit to the head from Tampa Bay defenceman Anton Stralman.

The NHL decided not to convene a hearing on the blow. Stralman wasn’t penalized for that check, nor for sticking out his leg and dropping Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers a few moments prior to that.

The Jets were livid about the two non-calls. Coach Paul Maurice was assessed a bench minor for arguing moments after Little was injured, then he was ejected to start the third period when referee Francois St. Laurent stood near the Jets bench when the players arrived for the final period and stared at Maurice with his arms folded.

Winnipeg rallied from three goals down in the third period but eventually lost the game in a shootout.

Little was seen after the game in street clothes near the Jets locker-room and he did travel with the team to Fort Lauderdale after the game.

The Jets had a scheduled off-day Friday, so had no update to give on any of their injured or banged-up players. They will play the Florida Panthers tonight at BB&T Center.

Winnipeg’s last two trips to Tampa have been costly.

Last season, Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov drove Jets defenceman Toby Enstrom into the boards from behind, bloodying Enstrom’s face, but received no discipline.

Thursday’s comeback from three goals down featured some spark from the Jets, unseen for much of the season.

The rally included two goals from captain Andrew Ladd in the third period, including the team’s ninth shorthanded goal of the season and Mark Scheifele’s first goal of 2016.

Scheifele had missed a total of 11 games due to two injuries between late December and late January. His last goal prior to Thursday was Dec. 18, and he now has 13 on the season.

The Jets also won the special-teams battle Thursday, scoring twice on the power play while killing all five Lightning power plays. They also added Ladd’s shorty during one of the home team’s power plays in the third.
