Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show today on TSN 1290 Winnipeg from noon until 3 pm. I will be joining Richard and Ezra and we have an action packed show including a look back at last night’s Jets/Panthers game, the upcoming Jets trip out West and all the rest of the news from across the NHL. Guests: Mike Colligan (NHL analyst at Forbes Sports Money, Penguins correspondent at The Hockey Writers), Dan Wood (Ducks radio color analyst).
Winnipeg Free Press: ‘Bad taste out of our mouth’. Blake Wheeler said the team was chomping at the bit to get back on the ice and remove the stain of the Buffalo loss. They certainly did that but the key will be to maintain this effort in their upcoming back to back games against the Canucks and Oilers.
Winnipeg Free Press: They’ve got the power. One of the keys to winning is taking advantage of your man advantages and the Jets did were quite successful last night.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets give fans early Xmas present. With games like last night the fans inside and out of the MTS Centre must have been longing to be back in the Southeast Division.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets power play kicks into gear. While the Jets certainly took care of their opportunities the Panthers PK isn’t exactly tops in the league (ranked 29th after last night).
