Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Your source for all the latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news and audio.

Note:  There was some disappointment in Winnipeg last night as the Jets came up short from going undefeated in regulation during this six-game homestand after the Leafs won game 6 by a final score of 4-2.  But overall, while they weren’t all perfect victories, the Jets went 4-1-1 at Bell MTS Place.  They were scheduled to practice today (which was an optional skate with no media availability following) before they leave for Detroit to play the Wings on Friday followed by a re-match with the Leafs in Toronto on Saturday.

Note II:  Today is the final day of the Moose practicing in Winnipeg before they leave on Friday for a three-game road trip starting with a game against the Admirals in Milwaukee on Saturday.  They will skate at the IcePlex at 10 AM.
