Note: The Jets November to remember didn’t have quite the end the team would have liked as they fell short in L.A. last night by a final score of 2-1. Overall they went 10-3-1 in the month of November. Today they will return back to Winnipeg and the team will be off.
Note III: The Moose built a two-goal lead in Chicago last night which they squandered but ultimately they pulled out the win in OT when rookie defenceman Johnathan Kovacevic scored just 18 seconds into extra time. It meant the Jets farm club would end November 11-4-0-0. Quite the sequence of games this month: 2W 1L 7W 3L 2W. They are off today and will be back on the ice tomorrow as they close out this seven game road trip in Rockford on Tuesday night.
