Winnipeg Free Press: Penalty kill has lost it’s mojo. The Jets weren’t particularly disciplined yesterday and specifically Evander Kane’s penalties. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock admitted after the game that they basically used Kane’s four minute double minor at the end of 3rd to help his team rest/run down the clock. While the Jets PK has been very good the Blues PP has been deadly and that team is just too talented to give them numerous opportunities.
