Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets took Saturday off after a disappointing loss to the Islanders on Friday night. Today they are in St. Louis to conclude their three-game road trip with a tough game against a Blues team that is coming off a 7-4 win over the Preds on Saturday afternoon. Morning skate gets underway at 10:30 AM so stay tuned for the pre-game report to get the full 411 ahead of the game. Puck drop is at 6:30 PM CT and following the final buzzer we want you to join the conversation on the Illegal Curve Post-Game Show.

Note II: The Moose concluded nine straight games at home last night with a solid 6-1 victory over the Senators which saw contributions from the entire team. As cliché as it is to say this Manitoba club really does win games as a team which included at least 12 skaters with at least a point. They finished the homestand 5-3-0-1 and are 19-6-0-2 in Winnipeg this season and are 30-17-2-2 overall which is good enough for 5th overall in the AHL in terms of winning percentage. They are off today and will travel to Abbotsford on Monday where they will kick off seven games on the road.
