Standings as of April 8, 2013 (full)

Scoreboard watch tonight: Hurricanes @ Bruins | Rangers @ Leafs |

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  It’s all about intensity nowCoach Noel and his team will have to manage this “time off ” and find the right mix of rest and practice during the home stretch.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Buff just ‘sitting around a lot’ nowHopefully the burly D-man can use this perceived slight to motivate himself.

Winnipeg Free Press:  News and NotesTrouba doesn’t yet have a stall.  Blake Wheeler feelin fine.

Winnipeg Sun:  Weird week for Big BuffYou got the sense that Buff wasn’t pleased that his ice time was reduced but at the same time the team won the game.  Could giving him some additional rest down the stretch be just what the doctor ordered to get him back on his game?
Dustin Byfuglien at practice

CBC:  For the Jets, a simple style is the solutionWas it simply a matter of returning to basics for Winnipeg?

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel off day audioBuff’s ice time. Status of Blake Wheeler. Looking ahead to Tuesday. Ability to have a full practice. Expectations. Scoring.

Illegal Curve:  Jets optional skate audioRon Hainsey and Dustin Byfuglien were chatting with the media following yesterday’s optional skate.

Jets prospect news:

Yahoo Canada:  OHL roundupMark Scheifele and his Barrie Colts took a stranglehold on their 2nd Round series with the Oshawa Generals as they won game 3 last night in Oshawa.  It was the seventh straight playoff victory for Barrie which looks to be cruising to the Eastern Conference championship.  The Jets 1st round selection in the 2011 Entry Draft had two assists which gave him 15 points (5 goals, 10 assists) and has him first overall in playoff points.

NHL news:

CBC:  Red Wings, Maple Leafs to clash at outdoor gameThe NHL probably should have waited until after the NCAA baskeball tournament was over before they announced the game between the Leafs and Red Wings is back on in Ann Arbor.  The University of Michigan Wolverines basketball team are taking on the Louisville Cardinals in the Championship Game tonight in Atlanta so most eyes in Michigan are focused elsewhere.

National Post:  Bettman ‘not planning on moving’ Coyotes from PhoenixAsk fans in Atlanta if they believe that?  While I am sure the league would prefer the Coyotes to remain in the desert, that can only happen if they find viable ownership, which hasn’t exactly been easy, despite all the tire kickers.

Globe and Mail:  Kings, Ducks hope to stage outdoor hockey in LA next JanuaryWhen someone says outdoor hockey, L.A. as a location just doesn’t come to mind.  Although I’m sure media when given the option of a Winter Classic in California instead of Michigan in January might jump at the opportunity.
