Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  It was the type of game that felt like if the Jets could make it to overtime and steal a point it would be significant. Well the Jets didn’t just make it to the extra period against the Montreal Canadiens, but instead they used the three forward option to win themselves the game courtesy of a Paul Stastny OT winner. They’ll take it and bank the points as they improved to 13-6-1 on the season.  The team is off today but will be back in action on Monday when they welcome the Vancouver Canucks to town.

Note II:  After winning four straight the Moose have lost their last two games including an afternoon contest on Saturday against Laval to split that four game series. They now have a record of 4-4-0 on the season.  They are off today but will continue their road trip in Toronto for a pair of games starting with a contest on Monday.
