Jets Journal: Hello Philly

The Winnipeg Jets touched down in Philadelphia Monday.

After enjoying a few days off for All-Star break, it was back to work as usual for the Winnipeg Jets.

Since most of the players were off enjoying a few days with family and friends outside of Winnipeg, most of them met at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia on Monday, for an early afternoon skate before facing the Flyers on Tuesday. The few who stayed in Winnipeg over the break along with a few coaches and other staff, boarded a 9:00am flight to head to Flyer country.

The team took to the ice in a dated and very chilly, university rink just after 2:00 pm for a hard skate for a good part of an hour and a half.

Both Spencer Machacek and Aaron Gagnon, who were called up from St. John's yesterday, were on the ice with the team hoping to join the lineup and contribute to the team tomorrow night.

Evander Kane and Tim Stapleton remained in Winnipeg for further evaluation on their injuries, so they will not be players on this road stretch.

Alexander Burmistrov and Dustin Byfuglien were both on the ice today but sporting orange uniforms for no-contact. Coach Cladue Noel told media that they both will not be players tomorrow night however, they are very close in returning sometime this road-trip.

After the skate, JetsTV followed the equipment crew to the Comcast Spectacor rink to watch the speedy process of setting up the dressing room in preparation for tomorrow's game. It was a packed and bumpy ride from the University rink to Comcast as six of us piled into the equipment truck.

The four crew members were amazingly quick and organized as they hauled all of the players gear and all of their pieces of equipment into the visitors room.

Within about 30 minutes, the empty room was converted into a cozy, temporary Jets home, each stall complete with name bars.

The Jets will continue on to Tampa Bay after the game on Tuesday night, followed by Florida and Montreal before returning home to Winnipeg.
