Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Single goal against Preds shows offence still sputtering.  (Paywall).  While the team felt like they had plenty of A+ chances the fact is they continue to fail to put the puck in the net which makes winning somewhat difficult.  Despite the fact that the goal scored by rookie Nikolaj Ehlers was a pretty one the team needs way more scoring if they hope to get any points during this home stand.
