Jets' Tyler Myers skates Friday morning, says he's playing Game 5

Winnipeg Jets defenceman Tyler Myers told reporters following Friday’s morning skate that will play in Game 5 at 7:30 p.m. ET against the visiting Minnesota Wild.

Myers suffered a lower-body injury in Game 3 when he was hit by Wild forward Marcus Foligno.

Earlier Friday, the Jets indicated that Myers, 28, was on the ice for morning skate.

Reports then surfaced that the shutdown blue-liner had declared himself fit to play.

Ahead 3-1 in the best-of-seven Western Conference quarter-final, Winnipeg could close out the series at home in front of 15,000 white-clad fans.
