Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Your source for all the latest Jets and Moose news, video and audio.

Note:  The Jets skated in Tampa on Friday as they got ready for today’s afternoon contest against the Bolts.  The Lightning destroyed the Rangers on Thursday (9-3) and while they are three points back of the Jets in terms of points in the standings they have won three straight and appear to be getting their game back on track.  No morning skate today but you can check back for the pre-game report in advance of today’s 3 pm CST puck drop.

Note II:  The Moose are on a ridiculous run which coincides with the play of Mikhail Berdin as they won their fifth straight game last night by a final score of 2-1 in OT.  Berdin has made 180 saves of the 183 shots he’s faced during this streak.  Today they practice at 12 noon in advance of tomorrow’s afternoon re-match with the Rampage which will conclude this four-game homestand.
