Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news.

Note:  The Jets have hit a stumbling block after going 4-0-1 prior to the start of their longest road trip of the season.  However, those good vibes have evaporated as the Jets have lost the first three games of this five game road trip.  The team will take a day off today to re-charge the battery before they actually practice on the ice in Minnesota tomorrow where they will get ready to face the Wild on Wednesday.

Note II:  The Moose are back in the city following a modified road trip with their fifth and final game on Saturday night being cancelled as a result of the Roadrunners captain Craig Cunningham collapsing on the ice.  Similar to the parent club Manitoba hit a bit of a stumbling block on the road finishing with one win and three losses.  They will hit the ice at 11 am for a skate today at the MTS Centre as they get ready to face the Iowa Wild on Tuesday and Thursday.
