Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Superstitious feeling: Jets won’t talk about playoff tickets until they’re officially in.  Slightly ironic that you would sell season ticket holders playoff tickets but not discuss individual seats sales.  Of course I’m not a superstitious type so perhaps I’m missing something.  Paul also writes about possible round 1 preferences.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets well aware of what’s at stake tonight in Colorado.  Ed files this report from the Pepsi Center in advance of the game.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Byfuglien glad suspension is almost over.  He sounded contrite but clearly didn’t want to get into a big discussion about the hit seen around the league.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets focused on game, despite chance to clinch playoff spot.  The team sure seems nonplussed by the magnitude of the game tonight in Colorado.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets fan brandishes noose during game vs. Blues.  I realize that it took place in Missouri but I just don’t think the intent was to be offensive.  I recall at the old Winnipeg Arena there was an older lady who sat a few rows in front of my families season tickets (section 129 I think) that used to brandish a ref with a noose doll. Of course the racial significance in Canada would be very different than how it would be perceived in the United States.

CBC:  Jets fever spreads across Winnipeg as team sits 1 win from playoffs.  The fever is spreading across the city and this is one that Jets fans don’t want to end.  There may even be a Portage and Main gathering tonight if the team clinches a spot in the post-season tonight.
