Note: The Jets dominance of the Canucks continued last night as Winnipeg beat Vancouver 4-0 which was the tenth straight time they beat them. They were scheduled to have a couple of days of practice here in Winnipeg to prepare for the hottest team in the NHL being the Tampa Bay Lightning who are 9-1-0 in their last 10 games but have cancelled today’s skate. They will be back on the ice on Thursday where we may get a further update on Carl Dahlstrom who left the game last night and is expected to miss some time.
