Winnipeg Free Press:  Pretty not a concern as Jets subdue dull Sabres. They all can’t be Picasso’s and last night game was anything but that however the team adds two more points to their standings total.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets drop dull Sabres.  It wasn’t the most exciting of wins but a win is a win and Ken breaks it all down here for you.

Times Herald:  Sabres’ Chris Stewart finally ends long goal slum in loss.  Coincidental that the guys who scores against the Jets is the player they are rumoured (see below) to be interested in.  Read the breakdown of the Sabres loss from the opposition newspaper.

TSN:  That’s Hockey 2Nite (video).  With Ondrej Pavelec losing four of his last five starts and Michael Hutchinson winning his last four, is there officially a goalie controversy in Winnipeg? TH2N discusses. (Note: This obviously aired before last night’s win).

Sportsnet:  Jets one team looking at Stewart.  This was a late addition to yesterday’s papers so in case you missed it.  Despite not offering his brother (Anthony) a contract when the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg perhaps they are looking to make amends with his younger brother (Chris).

The Score:  Systems Analyst – How the Jets scored 9 seconds into their game against Columbus.  An interesting analysis of the quick goal scored by the Jets Bryan Little to open Tuesday night’s game from former NHL player turned writer Justin Bourne.

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  Rona Roundtable (audio).  Head Coach of the St. John’s IceCaps Keith McCambridge joined Rick to provide an updateon what is going on with the Jets farm club.

Jets 2 Sabres 1:

Coach Maurice post-game:  On the penalty kill tonight.  How was the challenge of the Sabres?  What did he think of the hit that Lowry laid on Kaleta.  On the team’s ability to grind away for the win.  Ideal road game on the 2nd of a back-to-back?  On Bryan Little’s hot hand.  On the Jets power play.  Thoughts on getting four points to start the road trip.  On the goal against, was it bad luck for Postma or would he prefer to see him make a safer play?
