Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  The bottom line: Top line must be a forceCoach Noel refused to take the bait during the media scrum to discuss the things his top line wasn’t doing instead choosing to focus on the positives the line brings to the ice.  If both the 1st and 2nd lines could get going in the same game it would go a long way to getting this team in the win column.
1st line vs. Sabres

Winnipeg Free Press:  About the BruinsSome notes and the team rosters.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets should follow Boston modelEasy to say, another thing to do.

Winnipeg Sun:  Despite Noel’s coy ploy, Pavelec gets call against BruinsNo word if he was wearing a vest but he sure tried to keep it close to  it during the scrum.  Unfortunately for the coach his goalie had revealed his choice.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel scrumLooking back at the Ottawa game.  Goaltending decision?  Shutting down the Little/Ladd/Wheeler line down.  Where was his top line lacking?  How does Boston do it?

Bruins news:

Boston Herald:  Torey Krug ready for inevitable rookie strugglesInteresting article on the Bruins prized rookie.

CSN New England:  Hamilton doesn’t miss a beat after 10 gamesAnother young D-man for Boston is back and apparently quite able.
