Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Sole focus is on game tonight.  No point worrying about tomorrow when all you can focus on is tonight.  Captain Ladd is right, they cannot worry about anything else before or during the game cause that will simply distract from what they need to accomplish.
April 14, 2013 Andrew Ladd

Winnipeg Sun:  Playoff hopes on the line.  The Jets are going to be left doing some serious scoreboard watching, assuming they don’t already have bad news prior to the end of the game as both the Rangers and Senators start tonight an hour before the Jets game.  The bottom of the post also contains video from today’s post-practice scrums.

TSN: Jets wrap up regular season against Canadiens.  Some additional info for tonight’s game.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel pre-game scrum.  Ready to go?  Any new players today (No. Juggling, yes).  Being able to insert AHL players (Gagnon) into the roster.  Does he need to prepare any differently for tonight?  Play of Derek Meech.  Facing the Habs.  Going into the playoffs with confidence.  Being behind the bench.  Win and watch.

Illegal Curve:  Game day preview.  Ez previews tonight’s action.

Illegal Curve:  Morning Papers.  If you missed any of the news from this morning, we have you covered.

Scoreboard Watch:

Ottawa Citizen:  Karlsson ready to return against Capitals.   Simply unbelievable that he is returning so quickly after what many believed was a season ending injury.  His return should boost the Sens as they hope to clinch against the Capitals who might be taking it a bit easier after they clinched against the Jets on Tuesday.

Star-Ledger:  Can the Rangers clinch a playoff spot?  Jets fans hope the answer is no.

What a wild and wacky Friday.

Jets beat Stars 5-4 in OT
Moose lose 3-0 to Griffins
Ice beat Blades 6-3

And we start all over again tomorrow. IC Hockey Show at 9 AM.
