Note: The Jets finished off their home stand last night with a 2-1 shootout loss to the Sabres which means they went 3-0-1 during the home stand and sit with a 11-5-2 record. Today they have the day off before returning to action with a practice on Sunday ahead of a four-game road trip. The big news ahead of puck drop last night was the news that the Jets had recalled Kristian Vesalainen from the Moose.
Note II: The Moose are in the midst of a four-game road trip of their own which has seen them earn a split in the first two contests. Today they are in Michigan to take on the Griffin with a morning skate at 10:15 am and puck drop at 6 pm (times are central).
