Note: The Jets are on their All-Star and Player break.
Note II: The Moose had a solid effort last night in Iowa but they fell just short 1-0 to the Wild. They had a fantastic opening period but a lack of power in their powerplays huts them and they couldn’t muster much in the 3rd as they got outshot 16-6 in the final frame and outscored 1-0. They will have one final game to play tonight in Iowa before they start their AHL All-Star break.
Note III: While the Jets may be enjoying some R&R we aren’t taking any time off. We’ve got three hours of Winnipeg Jets and NHL talk on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am. The last 45 minutes of today’s show (starting at 11:15 AM) will feature a call in portion. So if you’ve got something you wanna discuss something Jets, Moose or NHL related give us a call (204-780-1290).
