Winnipeg Free Press: Meech and Miettinen added to lineup. Going to be a tough assignment to fill in for Bogosian but Meech is a veteran defenceman who should be able to handle the pressure of playing in a must win game.
Winnipeg Free Press: Captain Ladd named NHL star of the week. And not just any old star, but first star as a result of his unbelievable play of late. He has really taken his line on his back and gotten them and the rest of the team to that next level. In his last five games he has four goals and eight assists.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets still hot over hit on Bogosian. Rightly so. Upon further review it seemed like a hit that merited some sort of discipline.
Winnipeg Sun: How Jets can still make the playoffs despite the long odds. The odds are not great but there is still a chance starting with the need for a big win in Buffalo.
Illegal Curve: Coach Noel pre-game scrum. How are the Jets getting it done? What’s it mean to have Redmond back in the locker room? New troops at this point make it difficult? Do or die hockey, exiting games? Does he try and control the emotion? Meech drawing back in. Redmond talk. Is Kane a player tonight?
Illegal Curve: Jets at Sabres preview. Ezra takes a look at tonight’s game and gives you the projected Jets lineup.
Illegal Curve: Morning Papers. If you missed any of the Jets, IceCaps or Sabres news from earlier today, we have you covered.
Jets opposition (Sabres) news:
Buffalo News: Tickets are going once, going twice … sold? Not exactly the environment you think of when you consider Buffalo as a hockey market.
Buffalo News: Sabres in worse shape than before Pegula. Considering expectations when he first took over and started spending the dough, things have not gone quite as expected in Buffalo.
