Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Ready to go.  They have had their time off and tonight we see if that helped or hindered them.  At the bottom of the article are some videos from practice featuring Bolts coach Jon Cooper, goalie Ben Bishop, Steven Stamkos, Nate Thompson, Marty St. Louis as well as Jets Blake Wheeler and Kyle Wellwood.

TSN:  Bishop faces Pavelec as Jets host Lightning.  Some streaks and milestones can be continued/achieved tonight as Winnipeg hosts Tampa.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Next six games a sprint says Wheeler.  Good thing he has speed to burn.  The team won’t have a chance to rest as they try to keep up with the rest of the teams in the East.
Blake Wheeler v2

CBC:  5 reasons the Jets will make the playoffs.  So are you buying or selling based on these reasons?  Will the Jets make the playoffs?  What do you think?

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel pre-game.  Update on Nik Antropov (day to day, could be back this week). Changes to the Tampa system. Getting back to playing a meaningful game. Importance of playing with speed. Knowledge of Ben Bishop. Motivating the team.

Illegal Curve:  Game day preview.  Ezzy previews tonight’s action as the Jets take on the Lightning.

Illegal Curve:  Winnipeg Jets prospect Adam Lowry signs three year deal.  The Jets obviously like what they see from this young man.
