Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets hoping to extend their season-best winning streak against depleted Pens.  You never want to look past an opponent but if there was ever a time to hammer a Penguins team tonight is the night.  Of course the Jets were in a similar situation and many teams learned it was an error to judge a team that is dealing with injuries.  Perhaps we shall see Byfuglien vs. Downie Part Deux?
