Note: The Jets were in Seattle to conclude a two-game trip out west but unlike the contest on Saturday against the Canucks, the Kraken were more than ready for Winnipeg. Ultimately the home team took the game 3-2 dropping the Jets to 20-10-1-0 on the season. They are off today and will be back in action on Tuesday when the Senators are in town.
Note II: Manitoba and Belleville did battle in a re-match on Sunday after the Moose took the game on Saturday by a final score of 6-2. They followed that up with a comeback 3-2 OT win to give themselves a weekend sweep courtesy of Jeff Malott‘s game-winning goal as they improved to 14-7-2-1 on the season.
Note III: The Ice weren’t in action on Sunday but they were the recipient of an apology today from the Winnipeg Free Press after they filed a report (which the Ice said was false and inaccurate) that the local junior hockey club had been fined a substantial amount of money by the WHL.
