Winnipeg Free Press:  5,000 more Jets licence plates to go on sale this week.  If you were not one of the 20,000 lucky Manitobans to snatch up a Jets licence plate, do not despair.  MPI will be producing an additional 5000 plates to go on sale this week.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Crease-crashing Kane opportunity lost They failed to gain ground on the playoff teams, once again missing when they had an opportunity to slip into a playoff position.  The Jets just didn’t have it all nightWithout the brilliant play of Ondrej Pavelec the score easily could have been 5-1 for the Islanders.
Kane crashes net

Winnipeg Free Press:  If Wheeler shoots, he’ll score moreWheeler’s pass first attitude has definitely been a boon to his line mates but he has a pretty decent shot and sometimes he needs to fire the puck on net and look for a rebound.  Too often he and his line are trying the “pretty plays” and they need to add a little dirty to their game.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets snapshots – Another missed opportunity.   Jets rally.  Clean hit, necessitates fight?  Is Miettinen another Lehtinen?  Bad call on Kane.  Pride of St. Malo.  Michael Grabner’s return.
Stuart obliges

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets far too givingThe Jets just didn’t have the jump against the Islanders that they needed and to give credit to the boys from Long Island, they played a great road game.

Winnipeg Sun:  Warm welcome for the pride of St. MaloIt must have been quite the night for the nearly 100 friends and family of Travis Hamonic in the stands of the MTS Centre.  They saw him get an assist and make some big hits/plays.  They probably didn’t like when he limped off the ice in the 2nd period but he returned and played nearly 29 minutes.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Ladd’s stick, Buff’s skates could be yoursI’ve never been much of a memorabilia collector but something tells me these items, much like anything Jets related, will be a hot ticket item.

Cape Breton Post:  The ‘Peg is the place for PavelecThe former Cape Breton Screaming Eagle has been such a benefit to the Jets organization.  He is a workhorse that the team can rely on night in and night out.  Interesting speculation on Jets assistant coach Pascal Vincent, especially when you consider the Jets next opponent.
