Note: No rest for the wicked as the Jets get set to play their fifth game in a week against a fairly well rested opponent in the Leafs who haven’t played since they defeated the Jets in Winnipeg on Wednesday night. The Jets are coming off a 2-1 win against the Red Wings last night in Detroit so no morning skate for this squad.
Note II: The Moose are kicking off a three game road trip starting off today in Milwaukee when the puck drops at 6 pm. The Admirals are the top team in the Western Conference and will prove to be a worthwhile opponent for a Manitoba squad coming off winning three of four at home.
