Winnipeg Free Press:  Fans appreciate what G-S-T brings to JetsIt was evident again last night as chants of GST broke out each time the guys were on the ice.  They want to face the top lines each night and it is a thing of pride to shut them down.  They wanted to face the Ovechkin line before last night’s game and they kept the Russian star quiet almost the entire game.  They were not on the ice for his game winning goal with just over a minute to play in the 3rd.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Chevy needs to add affordable horsepowerPerhaps they could pry this ageless Finn from the Anaheim Ducks for a playoff run……

Winnipeg Sun:  Snapshots – have to tip the cap to CapsCaps play perfect road game.  Quick start by Caps.  Wheeler played a strong game.  Playing through injuries.  Jets poor power play.  Turnovers.  Thorburn’s strong game.  Odd-man rushes.  Pavelec comes up big.  Slater’s 400th game.  Failing to crack 8th spot.

Winnipeg Sun:  Enstrom return brings dilemmaThe Jets certainly don’t want to expose Mark Flood to waivers as there is a good chance they could lose the defenceman who has played so well for the team since his call-up from the IceCapsWe spoke with Mark yesterday and here is that audio about how the return of injured players affects his play.

Winnipeg Sun:  Sweet smell of successIt is clearly about keeping this team loose and Big Buff is a big proponent of that.  He told the media yesterday that it is important to celebrate any goal (nice or not) like it means something.

Winnipeg Sun:  Rappers light up some Jet FuelAs with anything Winnipeg Jets related I’m not surprised that the song is rising up the local charts.

CBC:  Jets humbled with CBC Sports story of the yearCoach Noel was quite pleased during his press conference that this was the sports story (not limited to just a hockey story) of the year as should be most fans of the Winnipeg Jets.

StarTribune:  We need Jets-Wild to become rivalryShall be very interesting to see what the February 13th re-match in St.Paul, Minnesota produces.
