Jets news:

TSN:  Jets don’t have much wiggle room to make playoffs.  The Jets cannot afford any let downs.  It is as simple as that.  Maybe one loss in their next six games.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Using down time to prep for final six regular games.  Now that they have had time to rest the sprint to the end begins.  Six games in 10 days will show us what this team is made of.
April 15, 2013 Winnipeg Jets practice

Winnipeg Sun:  Energized for date with Lightning.  The Jets have got to be ready for puck drop tomorrow when a surly Tampa Bay team comes in to play spoilers in their final game as Southeast division rivals.

Winnipeg Jets official site:  Museum tour.  The Jets got a sneak peek at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and here are some of the pictures from their tour.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel post-practice audio.  Thought today’s practice was pretty good.  Challenge first game back.  His focus during the last couple of days.   Excitement of the next 10 days.  Biggest challenge for him as a coach this week.  Sticking to the game plan (Using 4 lines vs. 3), not afraid to shorten but would prefer not to.  Importance of getting scoring from 3rd and 4th line players.  Will he match lines?

Illegal Curve:  Jets players post-practice audio.  We have audio from Evander Kane, Ondrej Pavelec, Olli Jokinen and Chris Thorburn.

Illegal Curve:  Jets morning papers.  If you missed any of the news from this morning we have you covered.
