The Winnipeg Jets have a little breathing room in the Western Conference playoff race as they prepare to face the St. Louis Blues on the road Tuesday night.
The Jets (33-21-12, 78 points) hold the second wild-card spot in the West and sit three points ahead of the surging Los Angeles Kings.
Already without defenceman Dustin Byfuglien and Bryan Little, Jets captain Andrew Ladd missed practice on Monday with what head coach Paul Maurice described as a "maintenance day."
Ladd, who leads the team in scoring with 53 points in 66 games played, is expected to be in the lineup against the Blues.

David Johnson has recently produced an application for producing WOWYs (with or without you) statistics for player combinations above the traditional two threshold. The super WOWY application is here at Puckalytics.
One must be careful when splitting variance and usage impacted data into even smaller samples, but trends can be interesting.
How have different combinations for the Jets performed?
