The Winnipeg Jets are expected to have forward Brandon Tanev back in the lineup ahead of Friday’s Game 2 matchup with the St. Louis Blues, according to Sportsnet’s Mark Spector.
Looks like Jets will get Brandon Tanev (hand injury) back tonight for Game 2. That'll settle the WPG lines a bit.

Tanev has been out of the Jets lineup since Apr. 2 after suffering a hand injury against the Minnesota Wild.
The 27-year-old has been a key part of the Jets’ bottom six, leading the team in hits through the regular season with 278. Tanev’s hard-nosed game will be a welcome addition with the Blues holding a 1-0 lead in the series.
The puck drops for Game 2 at 9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. CT.
