Note: The Jets needed a win last night after coming up short on Friday and despite allowing Columbus to tie the game and send it to extra time they picked up a critical two points. It was an emotional night with the return of Patrik Laine, Jack Roslovic and assistant coach Pascal Vincent. Winnipeg is off today.
Note II: The Moose were in tough last night to a very good Wolves team in Chicago. They began the contest by giving up two goals but stormed back with three straight to take a 3-2 lead into the final frame. However the home side tied the game to send it to extra time where the Wolves pulled off the win very late in OT. Manitoba will conclude this seven game homestand against the IceHogs in Rockford.
