Jets news:

Sportsnet:  Jets, Ducks letting history be their guide.  The odds (and history) favour the Ducks but they will have a tough challenge ahead from a Jets team not prepared to roll over.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets ‘going to bring all we have tonight’.  I’m expecting a full court press from the home side tonight as they have shown this season that they seem to play best when their backs are up against the wall.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Man behind the Whiteout happy to see it’s back.   Always interesting to read how these traditions get started.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Harper launches post-budget tour in Winnipeg, will attend tonight’s Jets game.  The PM has attended a number of games in the past and as a big hockey fan I’m not surprised he will be in attendance this evening.

Winnipeg Sun:  “Why not us”.  It was a simple message scrawled across the white board inside the Jets room and the players seemed to have adopted the mantra.

Jets audio:

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  The Big Show.  With the added pressure, Dennis Beyak says he expects Big Buff to elevate his game along with each of his Winnipeg teammates.

Ducks news:

Yahoo Sports:  No lead is safe.  When you read that the Ducks have led for 11:21 of the series and trailed for 67:19 it is hard to believe that Anaheim is the team with the 3-0 series lead.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Ducks find Jets fans spirited, but won’t let themselves be distracted.  You can tell that it isn’t just the Jets players soaking up the atmosphere at the MTS Centre.  But this is a focused Anaheim team that won’t allow a “Kesler sucks” or “Ryan’s hairline” chant to change their focus.
