Nik Ehlers scored his 13th goal of the season but it wasn't enough as the Winnipeg Jets fell 4-3 in overtime to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.

Ehlers now has 13 goals and 23 points in 30 games this season. He has goals in two straight games and three in his last five. The young forward is off to a pretty decent start this season as he attempts to best his career-high 25 goals of last season.

Tucker Poolman will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Connor Hellebuyck will be between the pipes Saturday against Tampa Bay.

Hellebuyck will look to bounce back after he allowed five goals on 32 shots Tuesday night in a 5-1 loss to Detroit. He has been superb this year with a 15-3-3 record, a 2.44 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.
Dec 9 - 12:51 PM

Steve Mason has passed his concussion protocol test, according to coach Paul Maurice.

Mason is slated to get a hard workout on Saturday, but he is not expected to taken off injured reserve until Monday at the earliest. He has been out of action since Nov. 25.

Dec 8 - 11:50 AM

Nikolaj Ehlers netted his 12th goal of the season in Thursday's 6-4 loss to Florida.

Ehlers has accounted for 22 points in 29 games this season, which includes four goals and five assists in the last nine contests.
Dec 8 - 11:45 AM

Eric Comrie allowed five goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Florida Panthers.

This was Comrie's first start of the season and it's safe to say it didn't go as planned. The 22-year-old has a bright future ahead of him, but that won't translate into fantasy value in standard fantasy leagues this season. He'll continue to serve as Connor Hellebuyck's backup goalie while Steve Mason is sidelined with an injury.
Dec 8 - 12:22 AM

Patrik Laine scored a goal and two assists in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Laine helped set up a first-period goal by Nikolaj Ehlers and a second-period power play tally by Blake Wheeler before adding one of his own in the third frame to tie the game at four. The Finnish winger finished the night with a plus-1 rating and four shots on goal in 19:23 of ice time. Laine's point streak as now hit four games (he has eight points during his recent run). He's up to 15 goals and 25 points in 29 games this season.
Dec 8 - 12:16 AM

Marko Dano will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Dano has found himself in the press box pretty often, as he's only played in six games this season. Shawn Matthias and Tucker Poolman will also serve as healthy scratches tonight.

Eric Comrie will get the start in Thursday's game against the Panthers.

Comrie was recalled from the minors at the end of November. He had an 8-4-1 record with a 2.30 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage with AHL Manitoba. He's on the roster because of the injury to Steve Mason.
Dec 7 - 6:10 PM

Connor Hellebuyck allowed five goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

This was the first regulation loss for Hellebuyck since Nov. 20th when he allowed five goals against Nashville. The defeat drops his record to 15-3-3 on the season (that's still pretty impressive). He'll head into his next game with a 2.44 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.
Dec 6 - 12:05 AM

Patrik Laine scored a power play goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Laine's tally cut Winnipeg's deficit to 2-1 in the second period, but that's as close as the Jets would come to tying the game. The Jets winger has now found the back of the net in three straight games. He has 14 goals and 22 points in 28 games this season. He's on pace to score 41 times in 2017-18.
Dec 5 - 11:58 PM

Shawn Matthias is expected to be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Matthias has two assists in 18 games this season, so he isn't exactly an offensive force. Marko Dano and Tucker Poolman are also expected to watch the game from the press box.
Dec 5 - 7:31 PM

Steve Mason (concussion) was on the ice with his teammates on Tuesday.

Mason was on for the latter stages of Winnipeg's morning skate, as he recovers from a concussion. He has been sidelined since Nov. 25. The next step for Mason will be getting cleared for practice.
