Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Stay tuned to @illegalcurve as we will be at the MTS Centre today as the Jets return to practice.
Winnipeg Sun: A little help would be nice. The Jets cannot get any luck. All the teams they have needed to lose, just keep winning or lose in OT or a SO. Check out the records in the last 10 games of the teams the Jets are chasing (Capitals are 8-1-1, Islanders 7-1-2 and Rangers 6-3-1). All Winnipeg can do is keep their three game win streak going. The Jets game in Washington (Tuesday, April 23rd) could have massive implications if all the teams keep winning this week.
Winnipeg Sun: Hockey in his blood. Despite his well known last name, Ryan Bowness is someone Jets fans are probably unfamiliar with. Kirk does a bio on the Jets’ manager of hockey operations.
