Note II: After last night’s game in Minnesota which saw the Jets lose 5-1 to the Wild for the fifth time this season the team held a closed door, player only meeting and then took off for Colorado. Today the Jets were scheduled to practice but will instead have a team meeting as they get ready to take on the Avalanche tomorrow night in Denver.
Note III: The Moose kicked off the final homestand of the regular season last night with a massive 3-1 win against the Condors. The win moved Manitoba back into a playoff spot and they are now just three points back of the 3rd spot (with one game in hand on Iowa). Today they have a re-match with Bakersfield with a 7 pm puck drop at Bell MTS Place.
Note IV: Following the Moose broadcast tune in for two hours of hockey talk via NHL This Week on TSN 1290 Winnipeg.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets go quietly, fall to 0-5 vs. Wild this season. Ken takes a look at the game from inside Xcel Energy Center.
Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Wild crushes Jets, but playoff chase ends. Read about the game from the perspective of a writer that covers Minnesota.
Pioneer Press: Wild come away with a big win and big letdown. More insight into the Jets opposition.
Sportsnet: Tanev leaves game vs. Wild with upper-body injury. Coach Maurice didn’t exactly offer much clarity in his post-game comments. Quite the slash from Staal in the opening period of play.
Winnipeg Free Press: Wild continue regular-season dominance over Jets with 5-1 win. (Paywall). Seems shocking that the Jets have been unable to pick up a W when they play their division rival. Mike recaps the action from his spot in St. Paul.
Winnipeg Free Press: Roslovic’s resolve-testing roller-coaster season currently on high point. (Paywall). Always going to be highs and lows for a young player playing on the big stage. Mike has more on the young prospect.
Winnipeg Free Press: Trouba proves value with solid season on Jets’ wounded blue line. (Paywall). And Mike wrote this before his shorthanded tally last night.
Global News: Laine evolves from sublime scorer to all-around player. Still plenty of development to go for the Jets sniper but he is young so there is plenty of time to continue his development.
TSN: How concerning is the Jets’ slump with the playoffs just around the corner? After losing five of their last seven games, how concerning is the Jets’ slump with the playoffs just around the corner? TSN Hockey analyst Jamie McLennan weighs in, and also discusses the lack of production from Winnipeg’s top players.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
