WINNIPEG - Dustin Byfuglien will be back in the Winnipeg Jets lineup when they host the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night, but a few important questions remain unanswered.

While the news that Byfuglien "looks like a player for the game" is sure to be a shot in the arm after the Jets defencmean missed the past five games with a mysterious lower-body injury, head coach Claude Noel said Zach Bogosian (wrist) remains day-to-day ("we'll wait and see") and wasn't ready to reveal who would be between the pipes against the Flyers ("that will be a game-time decision").

The Jets are 5-5-1 and coming off a 1-0 shutout win over the Ottawa Senators, while the Flyers are 4-6-1 going into tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Bogosian took some early turns on defence with Mark Stuart, but shifted to a pairing with Grant Clitsome for the bulk of Monday's practice.
