Note: The Jets were off on Sunday after a big 5-3 win on Saturday afternoon against the Coyotes. Today they have a game against division rival St. Louis who have struggled since their season opening loss to the Jets although they are coming off a 4-1 win over the Leafs on Saturday. The morning skate is at 10:30 am and you can check out our pre-game report for a full update. Puck drop is at 7 pm and we will have all the action covered.
Note II: The Moose are feeling good about themselves after a successful weekend which saw them beat the Rampage 4-1 on Friday which they followed up with a 6-3 win on Sunday. Mason Appleton had a massive game in the re-match posting his first ever professional hat trick (while adding two assists) and Eric Comrie has won three straight making at least 31 or more saves in those victories. The team is off today. They will practice in Winnipeg starting on Tuesday before they head out on the road for three games on Friday.
