Note: The Jets are back in action today after a day off on Tuesday following a tough 5-3 loss to the Predators to kick off a four game road trip. Morning skate is at 1 pm CST ahead of a 9:30 pm CST puck drop at Staples Center. Our pre-game report will set you up.
Note II: The Moose beat the Rocket 3-2 in a shootout last night to win all four games they played at Bell MTS Place this past week. Overall the team has won eight of their last nine and have just two regulation losses in the last 14 games. Team sits 1st in the central. No on-ice workouts today. I did write about the transition of Jack Roslovic from centre to wing. Read that here.
