Winnipeg Free Press:  Youth lifting Jets to new heights.  Gary’s article covers the arrival of the Jets future, today!  He says Scheifele, Hutchinson, Trouba and Lowry are making their mark on this team.

Winnipeg Free Press:  A loss with few complaints.  The Jets finally looked like a team that was ready to play some playoff hockey.  They played a pretty disciplined game only giving the Blues two power play opportunities.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Leaving Raleigh easy.  Tlusty’s bags were already packed and he basically only needed to know what his final destination would be once he got the trade call.

Winnipeg Sun:  Blues beat Winnipeg Jets in shootout after heavyweight battle.  It was the kind of game that had you wondering what a long playoff series would be like between these two teams that like to throw their weight around.  The Blues are the first team of five that were able to beat a previously perfect Hutchinson (14/14) in the shootout.  Of course these teams will face off another three times before the end of the season so stay tuned for more fun.
