The Winnipeg Jets are down two nothing and now have to attempt a comeback without Tobias Enstrom to aid the cause. The Jets announced that Enstrom is out with a lower-body injury and will not return for the night. This means that Josh Morrissey and Ben Chiarot will probably play more minutes.

Morrissey playing even more should not be a concern. He has had a very strong season and forms a formidable pairing with Jacob Trouba. Chiarot on the other hand is a major concern as he is just not very good. The good news is that Dustin Byfuglien has carried him before and might be able to carry him for one more game.

Hopefully this is a short term injury and Enstrom will return to the Jets line-up in short order. If it is not, than the Jets are in trouble because the defence is not deep enough to handle his loss.
