Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Tune into NHL Mid-Week from 6-8 PM tonight on TSN 1290 Winnipeg as the guys break down all the latest news from around the NHL. Guest: Jarmo Kekalainen (Columbus GM) & Michael Traikos (National Post).
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets studied for wrong exam. The run and gun Eastern Conference made a brief reappearance last night at the MTS Centre. The Jets had a ton of chances to score which is something coach Noel had to be happy with. The back check was a lot better yesterday as well. Still some work to be done but a step in the right direction.
Winnipeg Free Press: Scheifele’s star shining. He himself will admit that there are still thing he has to work on but there is no question that he is starting to look more and more like an everyday NHL centre.
Winnipeg Free Press: New combo sparks offence. Some speed with some vision was enough to get the Jets offence going last night.
Winnipeg Free Press: Thorburn says he’s ‘close’ to return. It was already a lighter mood in the dressing room when the gregarious Thorburn took his turn to answer questions from the media.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets fall 5-4. Ken with a great breakdown of the loss, with an interesting breakdown of each goal scored against Pavelec.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets find positives in shootout loss to Capitals. Sometimes it is important to look at things with a glass half full attitude.
CBC: Ladd stands out in loss to Caps. There was no question that we saw a more physically engaged Jets captain and I thought it was particularly telling when he scored that shootout goal to give the Jets a brief lead. He certainly let his action do the talking.
TSN: Jets get edged by Caps in wide-open shootout. Dennis breaks down some of the action from his vantage point.
Illegal Curve: Light goes out on Shaw Customers during Jets Game. Fans at home missed OT and took to social media to complain.
Illegal Curve: Winnipeg Jets donate $50,000.00 for #Hockeyfightscancer. The Jets held a really nice pre-game ceremony where they brought our four young survivors of cancer and presented Cancer Care Manitoba with a cheque for $50,000.00. We have some pictures and the press release in this post.
