Injured Jets slowly returning to practice as Second Round gets closer

Enstrom, Ehlers wear full contact jerseys in Tuesday's practice

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Tuesday marked the fourth day since the Winnipeg Jets put the finishing touches on the series win over the Minnesota Wild, and at the time, the Jets knew the gap before the start of the Second Round would be crucial for injured players to make a return.

It just so happened that Tuesday's practice showed some progress in that regard.

After wearing non-contact jerseys on Monday, both Nikolaj Ehlers and Toby Enstrom were back in regular colours.

Jets head coach Paul Maurice wouldn't confirm Enstrom's availability for Game One against the Predators (yet to be scheduled), but was happy to see the veteran defenceman back on the ice paired with Dustin Byfuglien.

BOSTON -- Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen needed a towel.

Some oxygen wouldn't have hurt, either.

Twenty minutes after the final horn sounded on Toronto's 4-3 victory against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Saturday, there were still beads of sweat dripping from the forehead and brow of an obviously fatigued Andersen.
