Tyler Myers returns to Winnipeg; likely out for game four

Things are not looking great for the Jets defenceman.

The word on the street or in the air is that Tyler Myers has returned to Winnipeg for further testing on his lower body. He will most likely not be available for game four tomorrow night in Minneapolis. This is not good news for the Jets. Myers has been adequate for the Jets and has contributed two goals for the team.

On the other hand, it sounds like Tobias Enstrom could return soon. Could he possibly push himself to be back in the lineup for tomorrow night to help the team some more. Could Tucker Poolman also draw in? Could Sami Niku be called up just in case? Anything is possible.

What is clear is that the Jets desperately need to shake-up their defence without Myers. Dustin Byfuglien got caught running around a bit in game three, but that is an easy fix. The more difficult part is balancing the defence while still having a pairing that can shut down the Eric Staal line.
