Winnipeg Free Press: Perfection for Pavelec. If the Jets goalie won’t boast about his performance, his teammates sure didn’t have any problems doing so. If the Jets are going to continue to advance in the East, these are exactly the types of games they need to win. As an aside, while the Jets currently sit 12th in the East, who would have ever expected Toronto and Edmonton to be leading their respective conferences?
Winnipeg Free Press: Jones, Antropov join list of hurting Jets. Hope that IceCaps coach McCambridge has enough troops with St. John’s, as it appears the parent club is going to be making some calls very soon.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets snapshots – Pavelec simply brilliant. I enjoy Wyman’s snapshots column. Gives you a little bit of everything. From game moments to the Jets success on the roadtrip to referencing the hard work of the GST line.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets infirmary filling up. The Jets will be tested in the back to back they are about to play against the Devils and Rangers on Saturday and Sunday.
Winnipeg Free Press: MTS luxury-suite surcharge blasted. The entire idea of tipping has become way out of whack.
Illegal Curve: Jets vs. Islanders recap. Video highlights and the night’s 3 stars. I missed Eric Hornick’s NYISkinny post, which was an incredibly in-depth assessment of the game from the Islanders point of view.
The Saginaw News: Scheifele goes from Saginaw Spirit to Barrie Colts standout to top NHL draft pick. The Spirit will put Scheifle in the ‘one that got away’ category.
Jets affiliate news – IceCaps:
The Telegram: IceCaps, Whale meet tonight. With the way the Jets players are going down guys might go from playing against the Rangers farm team tonight to the parent NY club on Sunday.
Jets next opponent news – New Jersey Devils:
Globe and Mail: Devils bankers look to escape debt. The Devils are not looking so hot, on or off the ice, these days.
Note: I’ve read that 300 Quebec Nordiques fans will be invading the Prudential Center to welcome back the Jets at tomorrow night’s Jets/Devils game.
