Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: The Jets kicked off their three-game road trip with a big 7-4 win over the Sabres last night in Buffalo. The team flew to Chicago after the victory and have a day off today. They will be back on the ice on Thursday at 1 pm for practice.
Note II: The Moose can fill your hockey void as they will be looking for revenge against the Griffins who defeated them 3-2 in overtime on Monday. It is the second of six straight at home as the first place team in the AHL adjusts to a roster without Roslovic/Lemieux/Lipon. They could get Francis Beauvillier back tonight and since we haven’t heard of any recalls or signings, it would seem he will be back into the lineup to give them 12 forwards. Puck drops at 7 pm.
