Note: The Jets wrapped up this three-game home stand going a perfect 3-0 courtesy of last night’s 4-1 win over the Golden Knights. While the game finished off 4-1 it was a lot closer than the score might indicate and if not for the efforts of Laurent Brossoit, who is 10-0-1 as a starter, it could have easily gone south. Instead the Jets are 30-14-2 which is good enough for 1st in the Central Division with two games in hand on Nashville who sit two points back of Winnipeg. Today the Jets are scheduled to practice at 12 noon and then depart for Nashville to take on the Preds in a clash of the top two teams in the division on Thursday night. Be sure to check out the Practice Report for the latest news and audio.
Note II: The Moose look to keep this mini streak rolling as they have a modest 3-0-0-1 record after picking up an OT win in their last game on Monday. They didn’t skate on Tuesday but are back on the ice for morning skate today at 10 AM at the IcePlex and then game four of this six-game home stand goes tonight at 7 pm at Bell MTS Place.
