Note II:  The Jets are riding a two-game win streak and will now play three straight games at home starting tonight against the Hurricanes.  Once the Jets hit the ice for their morning skate we will have your projected Jets lines along with pre-game audio.  Puck drops at 6 pm CT at Bell MTS Place.  Keep it locked to and on social media including TwitterFacebook | Instagram for all the latest pre and post game news.

Note III:  The Moose dropped their home opener last night to the Monsters 4-3 despite having one of the most dominant periods (the 1st) that I’ve seen this team play in three years.  The team is scheduled to practice at 12 noon as they prep for tomorrow’s afternoon re-match against the Monsters here at Bell MTS Place.
