Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets excel at falling behind early in games.  (Paywall).  If you wanna be good at something may as well be awesome at it.  Clearly not an ideal situation for the local NHL squad and one they will need to clean up over the remaining 14 games if they want to not be playing golf in April.

TSN: What makes Kyle Connor such an elite scorer? Winnipeg Jets forward Kyle Connor has scored a career-high 35 goals this season in only 68 games, good for sixth in the NHL. This year marks his third in a row with 30 or more goals, and he only seems to keep getting better. TSN’s Mike Johnson analyzes what makes Connor such an elite scoring threat.

TSN: Jets’ Connor continuing to put the NHL on notice. With 35 goals so far and a third consecutive 30-goal season, Kyle Connor continues to put the NHL on notice.

Sara Orlesky has more.
