Rick Bowness announces update on Mark Scheifele

The key Jets forward left last night's game with an injury.



The Winnipeg Jets suffered two key losses in Game 4 of their opening round Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the Vegas Golden Knights. 

First, they lost where it matters most on the scoreboard, dropping a 4-2 decision to Vegas and falling into a three games to one hole. Second, they lost key forward Mark Scheifele to an upper body injury in the first period of play. He crashed into the boards following a failed breakaway attempt, but tried to remain in the game. However, he would soon depart for the dressing room:

The good news for Jets fans who are hoping to catch a live glimpse of their team at least one more time this season is that Scheifele's status for the pivotal Game at T-Mobile Arena has been described as "hopeful" by head coach Rick Bowness: 

Should Scheifele be able to suit up, it would certainly go a long way in trying to force a Game 6 back in front of the White Out at Canada Life Centre in Winnipeg. 

Game 5 between the Jets and Golden Knights will start at 10:00 PM EST from Sin City.
