The Athletic Winnipeg: The Jets are 11th overall in the NHL, despite little success on the PK and PP. Winnipeg is riding a 3 game road win streak, and they look for more in Dallas vs the Stars tonight. Jack Roslovic is starting to find his game as a full-time NHL’er, the Jets make shift defence is succeeding, plus Ken and Murat have an update on big Buff and Murat shares the special bond between Paul Maurice and Jets fan Matthew Lagacé, who tragically passed away this past summer.
Illegal Curve: Coach Maurice pre-game scrum. Scrum topics – Wheeler and Copp both good to go tonight? His assessment of the Dallas Stars. On the Jets feeling good about their game. Do they gameplan differently when the Stars are this hot. Did he circle this trip as a litmus test for his club? Neal Pionk’s fit. What has he learned about his game that he didn’t see on the tape? On considering the analytics. Pionk filling the offensive role on the backend. The veteran players on Dallas. The Jets success on the road. Any lineup changes?
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
