Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets fought the Bruins in a tightly contested affair which was also highly entertaining contest but which ultimately saw the home side drop the contest 2-1.  And the circumstance which led the game winning goal were anything but normal.  Not only did they lose the game but they also lost veteran Mathieu Perreault who left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return.  Coach Maurice indicated he may have an update today.  Tonight they will have another tough test with defending Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis in town.  The Blues also played and lost last night in Edmonton.  Check out the pre-game report for the latest news and audio.  Puck drop is at 6 pm.

Note II:  The Moose played last night in Rockford to kick off the post All-Star break portion of their schedule and they came back to beat the IceHogs in their first shootout of the season.  JC Lipon had himself a game finishing with two goals in regulation and the shootout winner.  Manitoba remains the only team in the AHL without a overtime or shootout loss.  Today they are in Chicago where they will conclude their road trip against the Wolves.  Puck drop is at 7 pm.

Note III:  We’ve got plenty to discuss on today’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show starting at 9 am on TSN 1290 Winnipeg as we spend three hours talking about the Winnipeg Jets, Manitoba Moose and the NHL.  Join us here.
