Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets hope rest and recovery will cure what ails them.  (Paywall).  If a couple of days of rest and relaxation doesn’t help the Jets out early in tonight’s game then you have to think we may see some serious line blending from the coaching staff.  Jason has more from his spot in Colorado.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets Q+A with Free Press hockey writer Mike McIntyre.  (Paywall).  Mike took some time this afternoon to answer some questions about the local NHL squad although he definitely played it safe when I asked him to identify his favourite member of Illegal Curve.

TSN: Time for a reset with two wins in seven games. The Jets are looking for somewhat of a reset with only two wins in their last seven games. Sara Orlesky says there won’t be any changes to their lineup tonight, as they get set to take on the Avalanche with the Trade Deadline inching closer and closer.

Sportsnet:  Scheifele always interested in what happens at trade deadline.  Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele’s main focus is to play hockey, and aren’t too caught up in trade dealine chatter, but are always interested to see who goes where, and what teams are buyers and sellers.
