Note II: With a 4-2 win in Arizona to complete the 2018-19 regular season the Jets finish with 99 points (47-30-5) and will host St. Louis to kick off the 1st Round starting on Wednesday. The Jets went 3-1 in the season series against the Blues (although that was a very different team). Today they travel back to Winnipeg.
Note III: With a 1-0 win on Saturday over the Heat the Moose improved to 37-28-5-2 on the season and they’ve now gone 19-2-1-1 in the last 23 games at Bell MTS Place with one more home game this afternoon as Mikhail Berdin continues to play out of his mind. After the game the Moose were sitting in the 3rd playoff spot but once all the dust settled they were in 4th. It is a big opportunity for Manitoba to conclude the home portion of the regular season with another strong effort against a Heat team that is not making the playoffs. It is fan appreciation day and puck drops at 2 pm.
Winnipeg Sun: First round match-up set after Preds win Central but Jets will have home-ice vs Blues. You could lament the loss of position or you can pick yourself up and deal with the reality of your situation.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets grab consolation prize. (Paywall). Having home ice against St. Louis may prove to be quite valuable for this Winnipeg squad.
Winnipeg Free Press: Comrie looking to move on from hard loss. (Paywall). When you look at the sum total of his work this season that one game shouldn’t be the defining feature although I suspect it will likely be that way for some in the Jets fan base.
Arizona Republic: Coyotes fall apart in second period, end season with loss to Jets. Read about the game from the perspective of a writer that covers the Jets opposition.
Sportsnet: Which Canadian team is most likely to end Stanley Cup drought? Time for fans to head to the Red Mile?
TSN: Blues are the worst possible matchup for the Jets. Now that we know the Jets will face the Blues in the first round of the playoffs, Craig Button highlights three areas that Winnipeg will need to work on to defeat St. Louis and discuss in what areas the Jets will be vulnerable against the Blues.
