Winnipeg Free Press:  Treading fine line between defence and offenceThere were way too many good quality chances given up by the Jets against the Bolts.  They will have to correct that against a similarly quick Colorado team.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Maurice scrum (audio).  Offense that puts the team at risk.  Chances given up and specific to Stamkos.  Happy to see team generate a power play goal?  What was he trying to get with Blake Wheeler on the back end of the 5 on 3?  On what Postma has done for the club.   Did he have an opinion on the tripping penalty last night?  Execution at the end of a route?  Are players not aware enough away from the puck?  What does he expect to see against Colorado?  Does confidence start in practice?
