Note II: The Moose finished up their two-game series with the Marlies last night in Toronto which saw their losing streak extend to four games after they lost 4-2. They now head to Bellevile to wrap up their eight-game trip out east. Today is a travel day. They will face the Senators for the first time this season on Friday.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets flying high, but turbulence ahead. Putting the puck into the back of the net will never be a problem for this group but they will be tested with this five-game road trip out east.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets have been winning their way. (Paywall).

The Athletic Winnipeg: Are the Jets’ recent results real or a mirage? Regardless, prepare for a return to the playoffs. (Paywall). As has been evident for some time, the continued addition of points to the standings bank has put this team into a very good position for a playoff spot. Murat makes some interesting observations in his latest piece including the impact of Paul Stastny.
Sportsnet: Jets answer Maurice’s challenge with complete effort vs. Canucks. Can they keep the effort they displayed to conclude the homestand rolling with a tough trip coming out east starting tonight in Montreal?
