Winnipeg Free Press: In a good position heading into rematch with Panthers. The Jets simply cannot afford to have a let down game tonight. While it wouldn’t crush them in terms of standings in the Southeast, it is an important psychological win for this team.
TSN: Jets continue four-game road trip; visit Panthers. Would be nice to get to New Jersey with a two wins and one loss record during this road trip.
Winnipeg Sun: Ready for another shot at Panthers. Once again the players are saying the right things and tonight we can see if they can turn words into actions.
Illegal Curve: Coach Noel pre-game scrum. Reviewing the past two games and being ready for tonight. Hitting the .500 mark. Needing to be better than .500. Happy to see Tangradi score, hopes Wright scores (“Wright does the right things”). Where does he stand on visors? Redemption for Tuesday’s game. Not being satisfied with just winning in Tampa.
Illegal Curve: Game day preview between Jets and Panthers. For the Winnipeg Jets, revenge might be a dish best served in Florida.
Illegal Curve: Jets 2013 playoff ticket confirmation and pricing. The Jets have sent season ticket holders an email requesting confirmation of their intent to purchase their seats for the playoffs. This does not require any payment. They are just trying to ascertain who will be using their seats. Payment doesn’t occur until playoffs begin.
Illegal Curve: Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers. If you missed any of the news from earlier today, we have you covered.
