Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: The Jets finished off their six game home stand with a 3-0 shutout loss against the Flames last night having secured just two wins while adding four losses during their time at the MTS Centre. They will practice today at 12 noon at the IcePlex before they head out for three games on the road starting with a game against the Predators in Nashville on Monday.
Note II: Are you ready to go back to 1996? Today is the day that the MTS Centre turns back the clock for a retro look and feel when the Manitoba Moose take on the Toronto Marlies with a 2 pm puck drop. I will be joining voice of the Moose Mitch Peacock in the play by play booth to provide some colour commentry.
