TSN: Jets climb in NHL standings after beating Bruins. A victory over the defending champs in December is nice, but coach Claude Noel is focused on a larger goal (playoffs), and that requires him to continue to treat each game like the rest, no matter how big or small the opponent.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets are’t sitting back after beating champs. Big test comes Friday where they will need to avoid a let down game against a struggling Hurricanes team and then a quick flight to Detroit to take on a rested Red Wings (they play Phoenix on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena) squad. The Hurricanes are the first repeat team the Jets face at the MTS Centre, a 5-3 Winnipeg win back on October 22nd.
The Manitoban: Winning in a winter wonderland. 3 wins in December down, 11 games to go. Fans are hoping that if the Jets can continue their hot streak, they could make things a lot easier if they have post-season aspirations.
