The guys have an action packed show including a breakdown of tonight’s Jets/Flyers contest, a look ahead to the game Sunday against the Wild and all the rest of the news from across the NHL. Guests: Jay Feaster (GM of the Calgary Flames) and Alan Strachan (Has a new book on Wayne Gretzky).
CBC: 5 things to watch. Jeff examines tonight’s game and looks at 5 factors including a strong start, power play finish, Flyers captain flying high, Ladd’s lead and streak breaking.
Winnipeg Free Press: Flyers game to confirm if Jets have found keys to success. Nobody really knows what to expect when these two teams battle tonight. Will it be a low scoring or high flying affair? Personally I’m expecting a 5-4 type of game.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets ready for tilt with streaking Flyers. Both teams will have three game winning streaks on the line when the puck drops at the MTS Centre this evening.
TSN: Pavelec faces Mason as Jets host Flyers. Brian breaks down the upcoming game action following practice today.
Illegal Curve: Coach Noel pre-game presser. Up against an equally hot team in Philly. Injury update (Stuart – aways away. Trouba – more than a week). What’s Philly been doing right? Team consistency. What has the team done to help themselves? Getting players not in the lineup into a game?
Illegal Curve: Player pre-game audio from MTS Centre. After practice audio from Blake Wheeler, Zach Bogosian, Ondrej Pavelec and Mark Stuart.
Illegal Curve: Game day set-up. Ez sets up tonight’s action between Jets and Wings.
Illegal Curve: Morning Papers. If you missed any of the news this AM we have you covered.
