Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Today is a bit unusual as the entire Illegal Curve team will be attending various weddings, so we will likely have some post-game content but not our usual Pressbox Podcast.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets must start engines much sooner. Slow starts need to quickly become a thing of the past. You cannot spot a team a four score lead and hope to storm back in this league.
Winnipeg Free Press: Talk not cheap: it’s free. Fans want to hear players saying the right things but end of day, when that final buzzer sounds, what you’ve done on the ice is what actually counts.
Winnipeg Free Press: Little joy in Jetland after losses. Three losses in a row will do that to a group. Of course wins tonight and Tuesday could help subside the collective gasping.
Winnipeg Sun: Byfuglien adapting to added responsibilities for Jets. He is the most dynamic player on defence and that means added responsibility for the Jets big man.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets need to just do it . As Nike famously said, this team needs to show up for a full 60 minutes.
Jets opposition (New Jersey Devils) news:
Winnipeg Sun: Former Moose Schneider ready for Winnipeg Jets crowd. Expect a nice reception from the fans before they turn on him and start to cheer the home crowd.
Star-Ledger: Ryan Carter still sidelined as winless team practices in Winnipeg. The Devils Western Canada road trip has’t been too good and they are hoping that changes now that they’ve hit the centre.
