Winnipeg Sun:  Dano delivers for Jets in 5-2 victory over Canucks.  His teammates had fun with the fact that his second goal of the game went in off his butt.  Jets brass have to be happy to see the player they got back in the Ladd deal is having some impact on the game.

Winnipeg Sun:  Lowry pushing forward for Jets.  It hasn’t been a banner year for the young forward but it seems to have turned around since he was sent to the Moose for some seasoning.

Lowry makes the pass

Vancouver Sun:  Third time not the charm for Canucks.  Read about last night’s contest via the pen (or keyboard) of a Canucks beat writer.  ‘Kroppy’ hoping to make Winnipeg Jets home game by end of month.  This is good news as there was plenty of speculation that the fan favourite might not be at another home game this season.  While the veteran didn’t make it to the military appreciation game this season fans would still like to give him a cheer during the anthem if the opportunity presents itself.
