Jets expect to have Kane in lineup against Blues

Winnipeg Jets coach Claude Noel anticipates forward Evander Kane will be in the lineup Friday against the St. Louis Blues, the team announced through its official Twitter account.

Kane suffered an apparent leg injury in practice on Wednesday and his status had been in question.

Kane will take the pregame warm-up and the team then will make a final decision on his status for the game; however, Kane said he's ready to play.

"I wouldn't say it's 100 percent by any means, but [it is] good enough to play," said Kane, who said the injury is not knee-related. "As long as I can stand up out there I'll play."

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
