Note: The Jets took Sunday off after a disappointing loss on Saturday night to kick off their three-game homestand. Today they are expected to practice so check back for the Practice Report.
Note II: The Moose ended the four-game homestand with a comeback win over the Marlies. They fought back throughout the game from multiple deficits including this goal from Nicholas Jones who finished off a nice CJ Suess drive, Jets d prospect Johnny Kovacevic looking like a forward, Bobby Lynch unleashing a solid wrister and then David Gustafsson with the game-winning goal as he deposited a solid Jeff Malott net drive. The win means they are an impressive 22-7-0-2 record in Winnipeg and they are now 36-20-4-2 on the season and just five points shy of clinching a playoff spot.
