Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Tim’s game preview.  Lot of talk today about Hucthinson getting his third start in a row for the Jets as the question was put forth if this is the end of the goalie rotation?  Plenty more to get you ready for the game in his column.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Clitsome stepping up game.  Tim wrote this on the increased responsibilities of the Jets defenceman but I missed it in the morning papers.

Winnipeg Sun:  Ken’s look from the MTS Centre.  Plenty to digest in Ken’s latest preview for tonight’s game.

Winnipeg Sun:  Byfuglien playing ‘elite’ defence.  Looks like the player who prefers to play defence may continue to do this even after the Jets get healthy.

CBC:  5 Things to Watch.  Jeff gives you five things to think about before the game including:  1)  A Wild week 2) Hutchinson no. 1? 3) Evander Kane out 4) Banged up on both sides and 5) Separation anxiety.

Illegal Curve:   Game day set-up.  Setting up tonight’s Jets and Wild game with projected lines, starting goalies, games notes and more.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Maurice pre-game scrum (audio).  Kane won’t play tonight.  Electing to go with Hutchinson.  Is he comfortable riding the ‘hot hand’ or will he stick to his schedule?  Is there no need to declare a number one?  Fair to say they don’t have a #1 but instead a tandem?  Without Kane, how does it impact the penalty kill?  Also talks about who will fill Kane’s spot on the power play.  On the quirky goals scored between Jets & Wild.  Has he seen enough from the team to expect them to handle adversity?  Is it time to acknowledge this team has more depth than previously thought?  What has Byfuglien meant to the team during this stretch?  Does he worry about this team being able to match emotional level moving forward?  What does it take for this to manifest itself?  Did he consider O’Dell as a call up?

Illegal Curve:  Evander Kane out until February.  More injury news for the Jets.  Should we be surprised at this point?

Illegal Curve:  Jets vs. Wild projected lineupsTake a look at what the lines looked like after practice today and what combos you should expect to see at MTS Centre this evening.
