Winnipeg Free Press: Miles and miles to go, says Olli. The Jets still are aways away but it seems like they may be showing signs that they are ready to move in the right direction. Another big test tonight against a Predators team that played last night in Montreal. Tim also looks at Setoguchi being sat down, Evander’s benching and why Peluso was chosen for the shootout.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets have themselves dynamic duo in Buffstrom. The chemistry these two have demonstrated is pretty clear cut. They seem to have quite the symbiotic relationship.
Winnipeg Free Press: Trouba dodges serious harm. You really get a sense of the family aspect of this team. Nice to hear that everyone showed up at the hospital to check out the rookie.
Winnipeg Sun: Hoping to build on Friday’s rally. Another good start to the game, combined with avoiding those critical errors that always seem to become goals against, and this team could well be on its way to pulling off a big win against another central division rival.
Winnipeg Sun: Setoguchi takes benching in stride. Despite some early flashes of chemistry with his line, coach Noel was clearly looking to send a message to one of the newest member of the squad.
Illegal Curve: Coach Claude Noel presser. Following practice yesterday coach Noel spoke to the media. Listen here.
Illegal Curve: Players audio from IcePlex. Listen to Evander Kane, Grant Clitsome, Devin Setoguchi and Anthony Peluso.
Illegal Curve: Jacob Trouba talks to the media. The young rookie was in good spirits yesterday despite wearing a neck brace after sustaining a horrific injury in Friday night’s game against the Blues. If you missed it, we covered it here.
Jets opponent (Nashville Predators) news:
The Tennessean: Predators at Jets preview. One of our guests on the show gives you a preview of tonight’s game from the Nashville side of things.
The Tennessean: Seth Jones late goal gives Nashville win over Montreal. The 4th overall pick in 2013 showed some slick moves when he scored the game winner with just a few minutes to go in the 3rd period.
