The Winnipeg Jets beat the Nashville Predators 3-1 in what was a very close checking game in Music City, USA.

Andrew Ladd broke up the Predators' breakout, leading to a 2-0 with Michael Frolik scoring the opening goal in the first. Ryan Ellis scored off the blue line directly after a face off win, where the puck bounced off of two Jets and in. It did not take long for the Jets to answer back, with a great shot from Tyler Myers and a rebound by Blake Wheeler.

Drew Stafford eventually picked up the insurance goal on the empty net.

Let's break it down.

The Winnipeg Jets are fighting for their playoff lives and they’ll have to battle on without their top defenceman. 

Dustin Byfuglien, the Jets’ top scoring blue-liner with 18 goals and 36 points, will be out 2-to-4 weeks with an upper-body injury as the team prepares to face the Central Division leading Nashville Predators (41-18-7) on Saturday night.

The injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Jets (32-21-12), who are hanging on to the second wild-card spot in the West – two points ahead of the defending Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings.

The Jets are coming off a 3-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators, while the Predators dropped their fifth straight game in a 4-3 loss to the New York Islanders.

The Jets haven't had much luck with health in their final stretch drive.

Paul Maurice announced that Dustin Byfuglien is likely out for 2-4 weeks and Bryan Little will likely miss about half of the Jets upcoming 4 game road trip:

Byfuglien came off a check weird in a game against the Ottawa Senators. He left the ice, unable to hold his stick with both hands. Little had admitted to playing much of the season with minor bumps and bruises. It is possible that one of these has flared up more and has been instructed to rest.
