Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets dropped a stinker last night as the homestand from hell continued with a 6-1 loss to the Oilers which leaves them with one final chance to try and turn things around having lost four of four at home so far with one final game to go on Wednesday.  Today they are scheduled to practice today as 12 noon so stay tuned for the Practice Report.

Note II:  Big news from Monday was the news that Nikolaj Ehlers is done for the regular season although the team is confident/hopeful that he will be back for the playoffs according to head coach Paul Maurice.

Note III: The Moose looked poised to win their sixth game in a row yesterday afternoon but a late goal by Stockton sent the game to overtime which solved nothing and forced the game to a shootout where, despite a filthy goal by team points leader Nathan Todd, the home side couldn’t get it done and were forced to settle for a single point. Manitoba will be looking to keep things rolling tonight as they play their fourth straight game against Stockton. Puck drop at 6 PM.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets bombed by Oilers, fall to third in North. No real kind way of writing that recap.
