Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets practiced on Wednesday as they got ready for today’s huge contest against the Bruins who are ranked as the second best team in the Eastern Conference.  Morning skate gets underway in Winnipeg at 10:30 AM and you can check the pre-game report for the latest news and audio.  Puck drop is at 7 pm.

Note II:  The improbable Moose run at Bell MTS Place continued last night as they defeated the Stars 4-3 to improve to 15-1-0-1 in their last 17 games in downtown Winnipeg which improved them to 30-26-3-2 on the season.  They now sit just two points back of these same Stars (with two games in hand) for the fourth and final playoff spot.
