Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The two Western Conference division leaders met in a battle of 1st place teams last night and ultimately the Flames took it 4-1 thanks largely to Calgary netminder David Rittich and a rare visitor hat trick by Johnny Gaudreau.  The loss drops the Jets to 24-11-2 on the season.  Today they are scheduled to practice at 12 noon and the Practice Report will bring you up to speed on the latest news and audio.

Note II:  The Moose are back in business today as they kick off the post-Christmas portion of their schedule which in the AHL means a jersey switch as teams move their dark uniforms for this portion of the season.  Manitoba will practice tonight at 5 pm as players filter back into town as they prepare for the Colorado Eagles (newest AHL team) who they play twice starting with a 2 pm game on Sunday.
