Little has been dealing with concussion-like symptoms since taking a puck to the head last November and hasn't played since. Doctors have advised Little not to play in the 2021 season, so unfortunately this could be the end of the 32-year-old's career. Paul Stastny was acquired to serve as the Jets' No.2 centre, a role typically filled by Little.

Sekera (undisclosed) is on the ice for warmups; expected to play in Game 6.
Sekera will be a game-time decision in Game 6 vs. the Lightning.
Sekera left Game 5 temporarily after getting hurt on a shot block but managed to finish the game. Sekera has been listed as a game-time decision got Game 6 but it seems likely that he will play. If he can't, look for Taylor Fedun to re-join the lineup.
Faksa is "unfit to play" in Game 6 vs. the Lightning.
Faksa has not appeared in a game during the series, so it's not surprising that he won't be available for a must-win Game 6. Nicholas Caamano will stick in the lineup with Faksa out.
Hintz is "unfit to play" in Game 6 vs. the Lightning.
Hintz will miss his second straight game with an injury that he suffered while crashing into the boards in Game 5. With Hintz still out, Justin Dowling will remain in the lineup for the second straight game.

Comeau is not on the ice for the Stars morning skate and is questionable to play in Game 3.

Stamkos is unlikely to play in Game 2 but has not officially been ruled out.
Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said that he doesn’t think Stamkos will play in Game 2 but didn’t rule it out either. That makes Stamkos a game-time decision but more doubtful than probable. The Lightning have scored just four goals in their last three games (1.33 GF/gm) so they could use a 400-goal scorer.
