Note: The Jets were off on Thursday as they have had a few days between their 5-1 win over the Stars on Tuesday and their next game on Saturday night in Calgary. They are going to be facing a surly bunch of Flames as they have gone winless in their last seven games (0-5-2) so expect a focused club at practice today in Winnipeg before they head to Alberta later this afternoon. Stay tuned for the Jets Practice Report.
Note II: The Wranglers are in Winnipeg to play the Moose tonight for the first time ever…. although they used to be the Stockton Heat, who were last here as the Calgary Heat but I digress…puck drop is at 6 PM.
Note III: The Ice will be looking to make it 13 wins in a row tomorrow night when they welcome the Brandon Wheat Kings to town. Winnipeg is an impressive 17-1-0-0 on the season which included a sweep of their two-game series this week with Red Deer who came to town undefeated.
