Note: The Jets practiced on Wednesday and while they were without a few key contributors it sounds like the Jets bench boss didn’t have any significant concerns. We will have to see what morning skate at 10:30 AM brings as the seven-game homestand continues tonight against the Sharks. Be sure to check back for the pre-game report for the latest news and interviews.
Note II: The Moose won it 4-3 in OT last night as they outshot the Admirals 60-16 (that’s insane) in 64 minutes and 21 seconds of hockey in Milwaukee. Jets 2017 5th rounder Leon Gawanke had two goals and an assist (including the GWG see here) along with 11 shots on net (dear mama). Solid OT goal call by Daniel Fink. They are travelling today to Grand Rapids where they will finish the six game road trip.
