OTTAWA - Jets head coach Claude Noel is putting the band back together.

Last year’s top forward line of Bryan Little, Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler was reunited for Friday’s practice in the nation’s capital as the Jets look to find an offensive boost in time for Saturday afternoon’s clash against the Senators at Scotiabank Place.

“There’s more desperation right now,” Little said Friday. “There’s more pressure on us to go out and do something. With a shortened season the games matter a lot more. You don’t have as much time to get the chemistry going and feel each other out. You gotta get something going right away.

“That’s what they’re looking for. That’s why they switched up the lines so fast. They’re trying to find a spark right now.”
