Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news.

Note:  The Jets won their second game in a row as they continue to play very well against the central division this season (10-4-1 including 6-0 at the MTS Centre).  The 5-3 win over the Blues puts the Jets in the position to finally get over the hump and win their third game in a row on Monday against the Ducks here in the city.  Today the Jets will hit the ice at 11 am for a practice.  Good news for the team is that Patrik Laine has had all restrictions removed.

Note II:  The Moose were chasing the Rampage all night long last night in San Antonio but ultimately fell 4-2 in the re-match when the home side scored on an empty net while killing off a penalty.  The Moose will have a day off today before they hit the ice for practice.  Next game is back in Cedar Park, Texas where they will face the Stars.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets hit all the right notes in 5-3 win over Blues.  (Paywall).  The Jets had a solid goaltending from Ondrej Pavelec (especially in the middle frame), had an excellent power play, solid penalty kill and built an insurmountable lead over St. Louis.

St. Louis Post Dispatch:  Copley shines but Blues fall to Jets 5-3.  Always good to read about the game from the perspective of a beat writer that cover the Jets opposition.
