Winnipeg Free Press: ‘Huge, huge challenge’ for Jets tonight in San Jose. You certainly cannot rest on your laurels in the NHL and the Jets will have to be at the top of their game to escape California with an additional two points in the standings after tonight’s game in San Jose.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets enter San Jose Sharknado. Ken opens the notebook to give you some insight into today’s Jets and Sharks game from San Jose.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets react following pre-game skate (video). Hear from Blake Wheeler and Devin Setoguchi as well as coaches Maurice and McLellan.
CBC: Slowing Joe Pavelski next on Jets’ to-do list. This isn’t going to be an easy task but one the Jets will need to solve if they wanna win tonight.
Illegal Curve: Coach Maurice pre-game presser. How much of a chance did he get to watch Jets in his time as an analyst and be able to us that information coming in? Sharks transitioned Burns to forward, are Jets following that model with Buff? Had enough defence to cover Buff’s move to forward! Putting Wright back into the lineup, taking O’Dell out. Difference in his coaching now vs. when he started in the NHL. Boost from the father/sons trip? Did he bring someone?
