Note: It was an odd one last night at Bell MTS Place. The Jets were held without a shot for over 23 minutes between the 1st and 2nd periods. They scored two quickly in the 2nd only to see the Sharks do the same in the 3rd. Lots of chances to tie it as the 3rd wound down but instead they lost 3-2 in regulation. Today they are scheduled to practice at 12 noon as they get ready to face the Hawks on Sunday.
Note II: The Moose will face a massive test tonight when they welcome the top team in their division and the AHL to town. Milwaukee (Nashville’s farm club) has been rolling all season long and while it is looking bleak for Manitoba right now they could really use a W against the Admirals. Puck drop at 6 pm.
