Jets' Michael Hutchinson: Expected to start Wednesday

Hutchinson was first off the ice in Wednesday's morning skate, suggesting that he'll start the evening's contest against the Maple Leafs, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Barring an unexpected turn of events in pre-game warmups, it appears that Hutchinson will give it a go Wednesday night. It's slim pickens with a two-game slate, and Hutchinson hasn't fared all that well against the Buds, but admittedly, the sample size is quite small, as he's gone 1-0-1 with a 2.43 GAA and .907 save mark against them in a pair of games.
