Jets official site: Plays of the Year – Round 1, Match-Up 6. Wellwood vs. Pavelec. I suspect neither of those will make it out of the 2nd Round.
Jets official site: Paws’itive impact. We often talk about the positive economic impact that the return of the Jets 2.0 has had in our community, but it clearly goes deeper than that. This is but one example of the players finding a worthwhile local cause to throw their support behind and as is discussed in the article, the benefits of this relationship will be felt by this charity for years.

Stanley Cup news:
Philadelphia Daily News: Flyers think rest will trump momentum. Someone must have forgotten to pass that memo along to the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues.
Star-Ledger: Devils know it’s about to get rough against Flyers. Should be a really interesting Game 1 today in Philly.
The Tennessean: Profit eludes Predators despite on-ice success, public money. When the Jets reference copying the Predators model for success, thankfully for Winnipeg fans, they are referring simply to the development of prospects. When it comes to economics, it appears that Nashville could afford to take a page out of Winnipeg’s playbook.
The Tennessean: Preds hope to avoid 0-2 start. You cannot take a team like the Coyotes for granted. While the Predators have been the better team, better teams do not always get the victory.
Arizona Republic: Coyotes need ‘Prime Line’ to deliver. Phoenix has relied quite heavily on tender’ Mike Smith and it is high time the rest of this team showed up.
