Note: If you turned off the game with less than five minutes to go in the 3rd period (although I’d question why you would do that) then you may have missed the Jets give up two goals in 26 seconds which ultimately cost them the game with the Leafs on Saturday night. The team left immediately after the game to head to Finland. They’ve got two games against the Panthers later this week.
Note II: The Jets recalled Tucker Poolman on Saturday to augment the roster ahead of the Finland trip and will bring goalie Eric Comrie along as a non-roster player.
Note III: The Moose continue to struggle on the road as they lost 4-1 which drops their record to 3-4 on the season. Skylar Mckenzie did manage to score his first regular season pro goal (as he had scored in his first pro game which was in the playoffs for Manitoba and which was also the game winner). No rest for the squad as they play Rockford today at 4 pm. Perhaps Mikhail Berdin (Jets 2016 6th rounder) will get his first AHL start after Ken Appleby got the call last night in Milwaukee.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets cough up two-goal lead in third period, lose a stunner to Leafs. Ted breaks down the events that saw the W turn to an L.
Toronto Sun: Leafs lose Matthews, rally to beat Jets. For the Toronto perspective Lance gives you his assessment of the game including what the team did after Jacob Trouba knocked Matthews out of the game.
Winnipeg Free Press: Leafs score two goals in 26 seconds to down Jets 3-2. (Paywall). Mike was in Toronto last night and gives his insight into the action.
Sportsnet: Jets’ resilient effort spoiled by inability to hold lead against Leafs. It looked like they would get revenge for the loss last Wednesday but it was all for naught.
