Winnipeg Jets centre Bryan Little will not be playing in tonight’s game in Florida.
Head coach Paul Maurice says he’s day-to-day.
Little left Thursday’s 6-5 shootout loss in Tampa Bay in the 2nd period after he was laid out by Lightning defenceman Anton Stralman. Little was stumbling and vulnerable at the time of the hit, and Jets head coach Paul Maurice got tossed from the game for arguing with the refs over the hit.
Stralman ended up getting a match penalty, but the NHL is not going to hand out a fine or suspension.
Tonight’s game is the closer of a four-game road trip, in which the Jets are 1-1-1.
