Jets coach Claude Noel said he's hoping D Ron Hainsey (upper body) will be cleared to practice by the end of the week and could return to the lineup before the end of Winnipeg's seven-game road trip.

Forward Sean Bergenheim (lower body) and goaltender Scott Clemmensen (knee) both took part in the morning skate, but coach Kevin Dineen said neither will be in uniform tonight and they're not likely to play against Chicago on Thursday, either.
Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
