Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets across the board played a disappointing game last night against an Avalanche team that used their speed to cause problems for Winnipeg.  By the time the dust had settled the home side had lost the game 4-1 to Colorado and will need to turn their attention to the Senators when they finish off this three-game homestand tomorrow night.  Today the team is scheduled to practice at 12 noon and you can stick around for the Practice Report for the latest news and audio.

Note II:  The Moose look to continue their climb back into the playoff picture and with the way they’ve played at home (10-0-0-1 in last 11 games at Bell MTS Place) they will hope to keep the good times rolling tonight against the Wolves.  They played a near picture perfect game on Wednesday when they beat Chicago 4-2 in the first of two and we shall see if they can copy that same game in the re-match which goes tonight in downtown Winnipeg.  Puck drop at 7 pm.
