Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Looking to move up against the surging Sabres.  As the Sabres are looking to do to the Jets.  Should be an interesting test for both teams tonight.

Winnipeg Sun:  Playoff atmosphere at MTS Centre as Jets take on Sabres.  How many times can we call a game the biggest game of the season?  While it still feels early, tonight’s game is of monumental importance to maintain the Jets push for the post season.

Winnipeg Sun:  Ready to do battle.  Kirk with some news and notes from practice including the beef (and we ain’t talking tacos) between Steve Ott’s fiance and Buffalo News reporter Mike Harrington.

IIHF:  From Ust-Kamenogorsk to NHL.  Jets Nik Antropov talks about his career, Winnipeg and Kazakh hockey.

Illegal Curve:  Dustin Byfuglien and the Trade Market.  Richard takes a look at what the Jets might do with the enigmatic defenceman.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel post-practice.  How close is Peluso?  Having to be ready to go.  Focus on Buffalo.  What does he look for from his club early on in the game tonight?  More even ice time distribution across the board.  Benefit to the team.  Addition of Wright and Santorelli brings speed to bottom 6.  Status of Slater.  What team is missing with Slater on the shelf.  Getting healthy at the right time.
