Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets trying to regroup after three consecutive lossesIt will be a good test to see if the Jets are ready to start playing the right way as they push for the playoffs enters its final week.  Ken has more from the windy city.

Winnipeg Free Press:  No lineup changes for Jets tonight in Chicago. (Paywall).  Following the age old adage of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”…..wait a second…..joke aside clearly the changes are gonna have to be made from this group on the ice and Mike sets up the action from Chicago.

The Athletic Winnipeg:  There’s nobody like Dustin Byfuglien in the NHL, but is he enough to restore Winnipeg’s playoff swagger?  (Paywall).  No question big number 33 is a difference maker but Murat looks at the question as to whether his presence can sufficiently help the Jets get their groove back.
