ST. LOUIS -- Mark the coaches of both the Winnipeg Jets and St. Louis Blues down as being in favor of the rare back-to-back, home-and-home series.
"I wish they were all like that," said Jets coach Paul Maurice. "It's fair for travel, unless you get stuck at the airport for a few hours. I like them a lot. It's fun for the coaching part of it, too, areas you need to get better, anticipate adjustments they're going to make in the game. I'm a big fan."
Maurice's Jets won't have to wait long to get a chance to try to rebound from a 2-0 loss to the Blues on Saturday night in St. Louis, when they could get a puck past backup goalie Carter Hutton, who made a career-high 48 saves in posting his ninth career shutout.
