Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Once again the Illegal Curve team will be getting behind Movember. This year Ezra and I will be joined by Richard in growing our mustaches to help raise awareness. If you would like to donate to our team, here is a link.
Winnipeg Free Press: Welcome to the NHL, kid. The trial by fire for Chiarot was significant as he learned what happens when you tangle with some of the best players in the NHL. When asked he said it took him until the 2nd period before he truly got into a rhythm of the game.
Winnipeg Free Press: Big saves not there. In the below instance the save was made but the game was already out of hand. Pavelec, to his credit, faced the music following the game and stood in with the press and took responsibility for his inability to make the key saves when they needed him.
Winnipeg Free Press: Afterburner. Some notable game occurrences including free giveaways, good vocals, hometown proud, getting loud and next up.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets don’t measure up to Hawks. Well that isn’t quite true. For close to 21 minutes it was pretty even, but then the floodgates opened and we learned what happens during a full 60 minute game.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets claim Keaton Ellerby off waivers. With a banged up D-core this move shores up the back end a bit and hopefully means the team won’t have to rush any of the young players from the AHL.
Jets on a Deadline – Hawks 5 Jets 1:
