CHICAGO, Illinois - There will be no morning skate for the Winnipeg Jets at United Center ahead of their third meeting of the season with the Chicago Blackhawks.
UPDATE: Head coach Paul Maurice said Laurent Brossoit will get the start tonight against the Blackhawks. Brossoit has a 6-1-1 record this season with a 0.932 save percentage. His last start also came against the Blackhawks three days ago, when the 25-year-old made 32 saves in a 6-3 Jets win.

So far in back-to-back situations - of which the Jets will play 10 sets this season - Winnipeg is 4-1-0 in the first game. In the back half, the Jets are 2-2-0.
