Jets news:

Note:  Jets have re-assigned Aaron Gagnon to the IceCaps.

Jets Official Site:  Familiar facesMark Flood and Jason Jaffray make the leap from Moose to Jets.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Scoring, power play chances on the waneCoach Noel has certainly gotten his team playing a lot more responsible as can be seen in the dramatic drop in power play opportunities they hand the opposition.

Winnipeg Free Press:  It was a magic puckSometimes a little lady luck is just what a team needs to turn around its season.  The Jets were given a golden opportunity in Washington and they could not afford to squander it as chances like that do not happen very often.  Today in Pittsburgh it is going to take hard work to beat the 6th ranked Pens who are 15-7-2 at Consul Energy Center.

Winnipeg Free Press:  One dubious slashing call and game a barn burnerYou have to play with the hand that you are dealt.  This team needs to kick up the scoring, because it appears they are playing playoff style hockey 2 months before the post-season begins, and that seems unsustainable.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets have healthy attitudeThe players understand that luck sometimes factors into a game but know they cannot rely on this for more than the occasional odd victory.  The Jets still need to figure out how to score at even strength and they are going to need to start by proving same against the Penguins.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets could lose BogosianLosing Bogosian for any length of time during this critical stage in the season is not something the Jets could afford.

Illegal Curve:  2011 NHL Entry Draft Prospect statsWe have updated our prospects stats to all games as of February 10th.

Affiliate news – St. John’s IceCaps:

The Telegram:  Rookie John Albert can only watch as he recovers from a concussionAlbert made a very mature decision for a young guy, he spoke up about his headaches rather than keeping it to himself and trying to play through it.

Next opponent news – Pittsburgh Penguins:

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:  Fleury to start todayThe last time he faced the Jets back in December he cruised to an easy 4-1 victory only facing 19 shots.
Marc Andre Fleury

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:  Staal likely to play today after month long absenceWhile he might have some rust on his skates, the Pens addition of Staal and the Jets possible loss of Bogosian is not arithmetic that Jets fans are going to like adding up.
