Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news.

Note:  A big day for Winnipeg sports as the Jets have a chance to move into the Western Conference Final for the first time ever for an NHL franchise in this city. Of course the players will be trying to treat this like any other day and just another game.  They have morning skate at Bell MTS Place at 11 am with puck drop at 8:30 pm tonight.  Our Jets playoff pre-game report will set up all the action.

Note II:  The Moose are scheduled to practice today at 10:30 am at the IcePlex as they look to bounce back from two losses over the weekend in their Division Final against the Rockford IceHogs.  They will play games 3, 4 and 5 on the road at BMO Harris Bank Center in Illinois.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets Snapshots Paul’s list includes: 1) Jets look to close out Preds, Monday, but don’t expect a cakewalk. 2) Wheeler points to Stastny deal as key. 3) Maurice says Jets are best team he’s had, by far.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Coach confident Jets can tough it out in Game 6 against Preds.  (Paywall).  Wouldn’t expect him to be anything other than that in the team he has playing for him especially given how well they played last game.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Captain Epiphany saw the light.  (Paywall).  While he wasn’t able to pinpoint an exact date/game when it dawned on him that this team was more than just gonna be players I suspect the moment the team acquired Paul Stastny played a big role.

New York Times: The Lonely Existence of Winnipeg Jets Fans in AtlantaGreat story and a reminder that there was a small but extremely loyal base of fans in Atlanta, some of whom as illustrated in the article, continue to support the Jets.  It is why words matter when folks casually dismiss the ties to Atlanta from where this reborn Jets franchise came from.

The Tennessean:  Through five games, Jets simply betterJoe with a look at the series from the Jets opposition’s perspective.

TSN:  How daunting of a task is it for the Preds to go into Winnipeg to force Game 7 Craig Button discusses how key Connor Hellebuyck has been to the Jets’ success against the Predators, and how daunting of a task it is for Nashville to come into Winnipeg to force a Game 7.

TSN:  Jets not focusing on ‘magnitude’ of Game 6.  With a chance to close out the Predators at home on Monday night, the Jets are expecting Nashville’s best game of the season and are focusing on what’s given them success all season long.
