Note: The Jets four-game homestand began with them blowing a four goal lead but ultimately winning that game and has sputtered ever since including an OT loss on Friday followed by a disappointing 4-1 regulation loss on Sunday to the Rangers. They have one game remaining where they could earn two point coming up on Tuesday against the two time defending Stanley Cup champion Lightning. Jets schedule for the week isn’t out but if they practice today stay tuned for the Jets Practice Report.
Note II: There was a health update on Sunday as Jets interim head coach Davie Lowry indicated that defenceman Nate Beaulieu will be out “longer than day to day”.
Note III: The Moose were off on Sunday after finished up a two-game series sweep of the IceHogs on Saturday afternoon. Today they are scheduled to practice at 6 PM out at Camp Manitou as part of their Moose Community Practice series.

Winnipeg Free Press: Shesterkin stonewalls Jets. (Paywall). The Jets may have doubled the shots that the Rangers had but they didn’t create they only had a few more high-danger chances and ultimately the difference in the game was that New York was able to make Winnipeg pay for mistakes they made.
