Winnipeg Sun:  Jets fans complete friendly takeoverWhile the end result of the contest wasn’t one that the fans who traveled to Nevada wanted to see, they certainly made the atmosphere in and outside of T-Mobile Arena an electric one.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Knights stay golden at home by dumping Jets 5-2 in Vegas.  (Paywall).  It was a rusty start for the Jets and they just couldn’t seem to get things started.  At least they saw Patrik Laine score his fourth goal in four games.  Mike breaks it all down from Sin City.

The Athletic:  Jets’ record is great but long-term success requires better shot generation.  (Paywall).  While things are generally positive in the Jets world he takes a moment to focus on the areas that require cleaning up.  Specifically the Jets 5-on-5.

Sportsnet:  Connor Hellebuyck has been the Jets’ MVP, but can he keep it up?  This one came out before last night’s game but based on his 8-1-2 record he has been one of the Jets best player on most nights.

CTV News:  Jets fans choose Lenny as name for new security puppyFans seemed to like participating in this contest.
