Winnipeg Sun:  NHL missing the Jets’ boatAs I said yesterday while it is unfortunate that the Jets won’t be mentioned, officially, this will be an opportunity for the players to rest and get ready for a big 2nd half push.

Winnipeg Sun:  Trying to solve back-to-back woesConsidering the Jets are a young team you wouldn’t think lethargy would be a factor but they have often looked tired in the 2nd game.  Something tells me the Jets are going to get their first win of the season in back-to-back’s against the Rangers.

Winnipeg Sun:  Top line plagued by injuriesPerhaps the Kane/Little/Wheeler line has had to deal with all the injuries in the first half and will have a trouble free 2nd half.

Winnipeg Sun:  Big thrill for little Jets fansAnother very cool program that allows kids from all across the province to check out some Jets action.  As the flight deck is quite close to the IC seats in the press box we can often see these kids whooping it up during the games and you can see how much they appreciate the opportunity to watch the games.  Bobby Hull returning to Winnipeg for book signingHe returns for the 40th (yes 40th) anniversary of one of the most iconic sports contract signings in the history of hockey.

Winnipeg Sun:  SnapshotsLack of 3rd period finish.  Playoff trouble.  Just missed opportunities.  Bad luck.  Tough start for Mason on his 300th game.  Too many missed shots.  Still an All-star chance.  Hnidy meets the President.  Unsportsmanlike play by Canes player.  Miettinen still snake bitten.  A game they needed to win.

Illegal Curve:  Jets on a DeadlineGame recaps, video highlights and the 3 Stars of the night from last night’s Jets 2-1 loss to the Canes.

Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

The Telegram:  Getting to know Shawn WellerAlways important for Jets fans to be aware of who is in the pipeline.

Next opponent news – New York Rangers:

New York Post:  Rangers taking in coach Tortorella’s talking pointsAlways best to be on a coach’s good side, especially one as fiery as Tortarella.

New York Daily News:  Sauer news for Rangers defencemanWith another injury to a Rangers defenceman, you have to wonder if the scouting department is going to be out watching a team with a lot of defensive depth…..wonder who that could be!
