Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: We have an exciting opportunity for Jets fans who will be in Florida for the Jets and Panthers game on December 5th. The Panthers are doing a promo (promo code is: Jets) that will allow fans to get a limited number of premium seats and behind the scenes access. Should be a lot of fun. To learn more, click here.
Winnipeg Free Press: Hawks apply usual beating. It sort of like watching Charlie Brown trying to kick the football. You hope that he is finally going to make some contact, but you just know that at some point Lucy is pulling that ball away.
Winnipeg Free Press: Ellerby ends brutal schneid with first goal in 104 games. While he was happy to get a goal after such a long time it was clear that he wasn’t happy with his own defensive play last night. None more glaring than the Toews goal when he went around Ellerby like he wasn’t even there.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets-Hawks summary. Some of the pertinent facts from the game including droughts, faceoff woes, dominance by Hawks, the other Kane is very able and up next.
Winnipeg Free Press: No more pizza giveaways. Interesting comments by Oduya to the fan base preaching patience.
Winnipeg Sun: Safe to say there are acres between Hawks and Jets. Credit to the Jets for maintaining the pace with the defending Stanley Cup champs for a bit but it is clear which team is geared for a long race and which is more of a sprinter. Paul also looks at the less than stellar play of the goalies, Toews takes on HelmetPardy, Ladd’s play and Little’s advice to Scheifele.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets not in same league. Those Hawks are something else. Many times when it was even strength it appeared that Chicago was on a power play. The talent on display last night was remarkable.
Winnipeg Sun: Hawks score three times in third period to down Jets 6-3. Things looked good for Winnipeg as they controlled play for the first couple of minutes in the final frame but then it all went awry. The ice tilted back against the Jets and it was almost all Chicago for the rest of the period.
CTV News: Prime Minister takes in Winnipeg Jets game. It is quite remarkable seeing the Prime Minister sitting amongst the rest of the fans in the crowd. Of course he wasn’t entirely alone as he was surrounded by RCMP, both in plainclothes and on the cat walk high above the MTS Centre, as well as some fellow Conservative Members of Parliament. During each intermission Stephen Harper posed for 100s of pictures with fans.
Hockey’s Future: Prospects mixing promise with adversity in early stages of 2013-14 season. Taking a look at some of the prospects in the system.
