Preview: Jets at Panthers

Winnipeg dropped out of the lead in the Central following Tuesday’s 5-1 loss at Detroit, but its special teams have been outstanding in the first three games this month. The Jets have converted 7 of 16 chances with the man advantage while killing off all 14 short-handed situations. The Panthers have dropped three in a row — all by one goal — and now must cope with the loss of starting netminder Roberto Luongo, who was injured in Monday’s shootout loss to the New York Islanders. Coach Bob Boughner on Wednesday said Luongo will be out for an “extended period of time. Whether that’s three weeks, four weeks, five weeks, (we’ll) see how his rehab goes.”<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7:30 p.m. ET, TSN3 (Winnipeg), FSN Florida, NHL.TV
