The Winnipeg Jets strength in their blueline has always been their amazing depth on the right side. Things look bleak for the playoff push though with Tyler Myers, Dustin Byfuglien, and Paul Postma all injured.
The Jets though may have two returning today, with one for sure:

The Winnipeg Jets are getting healthy at the right time as they try to stay in the playoff hunt Tuesday night.
Defencemen Tyler Myers and Dustin Byfuglien both returned to practice and are closer to returning to the lineup as the Jets open a three-game homestand against the San Jose Sharks at the MTS Centre.
Myers, who missed one game with an upper-body injury, declared himself fit for action. Byfuglien, however, may need a few more days to fully heal from his upper-body injury.
The Jets (34-23-12, 80 points) are one point behind the Los Angeles Kings for the final wild-card spot.

Michael Hutchinson has cooled off from his hot start.
Since the All-Star break Hutchinson has posted an ugly save percentage of .879, the lowest of any other NHL netminder aside from Anton Khudobin.
So how much should the Jets worry about their young goaltender?
