Winnipeg Jets Afternoon Links
Note: Tune into a special edition of NHL Mid-Week from 6-8 PM tonight on TSN 1290 Winnipeg as we break down all the latest news from around the NHL. The show has moved from Wednesday to Tuesday as the Jets are playing in Chicago tomorrow night. Guests: Rick Peckham (Lightning play by play man) and Tyson Nash (Coyotes analyst).
– CP story had a headline ‘Jets forward Kane won’t take trip with team to Chicago’. They have since changed it to ‘Kane will be a game-time decision in Chicago’.
Winnipeg Free Press: Win boosts Jets’ confidence heading into Chicago. When your team is tied for last in the division, and second last in the conference it is probably a good thing the Jets are getting swollen heads. Having said that if they can re-create the game plan that they demonstrated against the Wings tomorrow night in Chicago, they are likely in line for a better result than what they were on receiving end of last Saturday.
Winnipeg Sun: Kane to travel with Jets to Chicago. While the Jets pulled off the win last night sans their sniper, they probably wouldn’t win many more without the young gun in the lineup.
Winnipeg Sun: Redmond feels blessed to be back with Winnipeg Jets. This was a late article that I missed in the AM papers. Redmond is clearly quite happy to be back in the NHL and should be seeing action pretty soon.
Illegal Curve: Coach Noel scrum. Evander Kane status. How can the team bottle last night’s effort? More about process than results? How’s Scheifele handling the ups and downs of pro hockey? Happy with Mark’s defensive game? Start of Bryan Little. How did his team control the puck last night? Reinforcing for players to see what can happen when implementing his system.
Illegal Curve: Player audio from IcePlex. After practice audio from Al Montoya, Mark Scheifele, Andrew Ladd and Matt Halischuk.
Illegal Curve: Morning Papers. If you missed any of the news this AM we have you covered.
AHL.com: Chiarot a big plus for IceCaps. He is logging big minutes on the farm and this merited a call-up to the big club last weekend.
