Note: The Jets aren’t scheduled to skate during the day and following last night’s improbable 4-3 overtime win they can probably use the rest. Especially considering they will be taking to the ice at 7 pm for the Skills Competition.
Note II: The Moose are back on the ice as they skate this morning at 10 am at the IcePlex as they prepare to kick off the first of eight games here in Winnipeg. They start with a Thursday night contest against the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Manitoba Post: Byfuglien’s slash saves the day for Winnipeg. While the folks from PETA won’t like the slash he laid on Beagle (is this thing on?) there is no doubt that it changed the dynamic of the game. Would have made it a 4-2 and ended the game, instead 33 heads to the sin bin with his team only down one, and they tie it.
