According to TSN’s Sara Orlesky, Winnipeg’s rookie scoring sensation will not travel with the Jets on their three-game road trip that starts tomorrow in Arizona. Laine was hurt this past weekend when he took a big hit from Buffalo defenseman Jake McCabe.
The Jets also play Saturday in Los Angeles and Monday in San Jose. And if they’d like their road trip to be a success, they’ll need to be a lot better than they were last night at MTS Centre, where they got thumped, 7-4, by the Canadiens.
“I didn’t like the way we played the whole entire night,” said a visibly angry head coach, Paul Maurice, whose team is only one point back of a wild-card spot but has played more games than most of its competition.
“We were horse-(bleep) from the start, from the drop of that first puck right to the very end of it.”
