Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets took it on the chin last night in Calgary allowing five 1st period goals to give the Flames what looked like an insurmountable lead.  However credit Winnipeg with putting up a good fight as they poured on the pressure in the 2nd to make it a three goal game and came within a goalie interference call of making it a one goal game.  Instead they lost for the first time in regulation since November 2nd.  They are off today enjoying U.S. Thanksgiving (comfortably in a playoff spot which is usually a good omen) before hitting the ice for an afternoon game against the Wild on Black Friday.

Note II:  The Moose have another day of practice as they get ready to face the second place team in the central division in the Iowa Wild on Friday night.  They are scheduled to hit the ice at 10 am at Bell MTS Place.
