Note III: Reminder that following the Jets game, our comprehensive coverage jumps into action with post-game audio from both dressing rooms, coach Noel’s post-game presser as well as our podcast from the pressbox breaking down the game action.
Winnipeg Free Press: Kane outflies Ovechkin. All that Jets fans should care about right now is this team developing chemistry and most importantly is that the 2nd line can become a consistently scoring one. If Kane can be comfortable with Schefiele and Setoguchi fans could be in for a lot of goal celebrations.
Winnipeg Free Press: Third time the charm for Scheifele? This will be his chance and the pressure is on for him to find success during this training camp.
Winnipeg Free Press: At 6-6, Blomqvist a big project. You know someone is a giant when he towers over fairly tall hockey players and that is exactly what the Swede does to his Jets camp mates.
Winnipeg Free Press: Are you ready for some hockey? Not really. It hardly seems real that we will be hearing 15,004 fans cheer ‘True North’ during the Canadian anthem at the MTS Centre later today.
Winnipeg Sun: Morrissey shows poise, promise. Exactly the kind of assessment Jets fans want to hear about the 2013 1st round selection.
Winnipeg Sun: Capitals edge Jets in shootout. Pre-season isn’t about wins or losses. It really is about getting your legs back under you and giving the brass a chance to analyze your game.
Illegal Curve: Coach Claude Noel post-game press conference. Thoughts on tonight’s game. Play of Pasquale. First impression of Kane-Scheifele-Setoguchi. Did bigger ice surface help out that line? Composure of Morrissey. Impact of the shallower goals. What are the biggest takeaways from this game? Update on Thorburn (Upper body).
