Jets News:

CBC:  Jets look to build with big road gamesWith only 4 points separating the 3rd place Jets and 1st place Capitals in the Southeast, tomorrow night’s game in Washington is quite important.  The Jets are looking to avenge the 1-0 loss to Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals back on December 15th.

Toronto Star:  Evander Kane tries to improve his imageIs this a Winnipeg thing?  Would speculation happen in other Canadian cities?  Couple that with this being a new team and you have a recipe for the type of hype/rumours that have spread like wildfire.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Little’s luck all Jets needLucky #13 for Bryan Little turned out to be the game winner after some hard skating by his linemate Blake Wheeler.  The Jets have to focus on winning the Southleast™(Neil Greenberg, Washington Post) if they want to talk playoffs.  Huge game on Thursday in Washington.
Jets face off win

Winnipeg Free Press:  Kane needs to avoid smoke, start creating fire on iceCan the Jets sniper turn his season around?  There is still plenty of time and opportunity for Kane to prove his worth to this franchise.

Winnipeg Free Press:  NHL considering Winnipeg as future site of Heritage ClassicWith the building of the new Investors Group Stadium, it is a perfect storm of circumstances for the newest Canadian franchise to host the Heritage Classic.  My only question, for the Old timers game, supposing the Jets play the Oilers, do we have Dale Hawerchuk facing off against Wayne Gretzky or Patrik Stefan?

Winnipeg Sun:  SnapshotsDon’t need many goals for victory.  Jets still low scoring.  Pavelec’s timely saves, Wheeler’s strong skating, sniper Chris Thorburn.  Catching the Capitals.  Rare early tally.  Jets controlled 3rd period.  Kane played physical.  Wheeler is a threat.  Jets D continues to plays well.  GST line strong play.  Finally finishing game off.  4th line chemistry.  Seven games without a PP goal for Winnipeg.  Missed call by the refs.
