Winnipeg Free Press: Stinky sequels. Good news for the Jets is as bad as they have been at winning the 2nd game of a back-to-back, they have been good at finishing of a team playing in that situation. Luckily for them they will face the Sabres on Thursday that has to go through Chicago on Wednesday.
Winnipeg Sun: Snapshots. Back-to-back games comical. Six more to go. Kane’s not able. Antropov’s iron. No legs for comebacks. Stick-slashing idiotic. Slater’s strong game. Burmistrov need to shoot more. Poor energy in Jersey. Flood’s hard work. Little not yet up to speed. Better 3rd period.
Winnipeg Sun: Up one day…down the next. Just when you think that every team in the NHL probably stinks in the 2nd half of a back-to-back you see that it causes no issues to some teams. Perhaps the Jets need to study and copy how teams like Chicago (7-2-1) and New Jersey/Detroit (7-3) prepare as they have demonstrated no failings when it comes to these types of games.
Winnipeg Free Press: African restaurants score Jets business. Another example of how the Jets return has impacted the downtown of Winnipeg.
Illegal Curve: The 59Fifty hat. We branch out with 2 style’s of New Era hats.
