The worst is confirmed for Mark Scheifele

This doesn't bode well.



If the Winnipeg Jets are to force a Game 6 in their Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the Vegas Golden Knights, they'll have to do so without one of the top pieces in their lineup.

Forward Mark Scheifele, who was injured in Game 4 after crashing into the boards following a failed breakaway attempt, will not be playing in Game 5 tomorrow night in Sin City.

Scheifele, who scored a career high 42 goals during the 2022-23 regular season, has been held to only a single goal so far in four games played in the postseason. 

The Jets and Golden Knights will get underway from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas beginning at 10:00 PM EST. Vegas can punch their ticket to the second round for the first time since 2021 should they ultimately emerge victorious. If not, Game 6 will return to Winnipeg's Canada Life Centre on Saturday.
