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

Note: The Jets did not start on time and despite having opportunities to get into the game ultimately dropped a 7-5 decision to the Red Wings last night in Detroit. Today they are in Buffalo where they will get set to face the Sabres tomorrow night. They were scheduled to practice today but have cancelled.

Note II: The Moose will be looking to get back to their winning ways against a Marlies team in Toronto tonight that sit 1st in the North Division (3rd in the Eastern Conference). Puck drop is at 6 PM CST.

Note III: If you’re wanting to watch a clash of Titans but in hockey form then head down to Wayne Fleming Arena to see the two best teams in the CHL (not just the WHL) do battle as Winnipeg welcomes Seattle to town for a clash. Puck drop is at 7:05 PM CST.

Jets news:

Sportsnet: With eyes on a division title, Jets must re-establish defensive prowess. Whatever that was last night it wasn’t “it”. While 37 had an off night so did the team around him.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets winning streak snapped as they fall to Red Wings in wild goal-fest. When they found themselves down 3-0 and 4-1 they just never seemed like they were out of the game and even early in the 3rd down 5-4 it seemed like this team could come back but they weren’t rewarded for a poor effort with any points and that’s probably a good thing. Plenty to teach from that loss.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets skid out in Motor City. As good as Connor Hellebuyck has been this season he sometimes shows he is human and in those situations (four goals on nine shots) it would help if his team was there to bail him out. But the team, like their netminder, just didn’t have it last night in Detroit and it showed.

Detroit Free Press: Red Wings wobbly on defense, but score plenty in 7-5 win over Jets to end skid. Be sure to check out the game recap from the perspective of a beat writer who covers the Jets opponent. 

MLive: Red Wings start strong, stave off Jets to end three-game skid. Another game recap from a Wings beat writer.

Sportsnet: 32 Thoughts. Number 8 has to do with the Flyers left-shot defenceman Ivan Provorov which came originally good friend of ours Anthony SanFilippo of Crossing Broad. Anthony wrote about a potential divorce between Philadelphia and the 7th overall pick from the 2015 Draft (who played two years of junior hockey in Brandon) and mentioned past Winnipeg interest in him.

Sportsnet: Andrew Copp finding stride with Red Wings after taking time to adapt to new situation. If you’re curious how the former Jets prospect is doing back in his home state, Wieber gives you the latest on him.

Jets video:

TSN: Corrado pins Jets’ loss on ‘uncharacteristic defensive breakdowns’After giving up five-plus goals in a game for just the fifth time this season, TSN Hockey analyst Frankie Corrado pins the Jets’ loss on “uncharacteristic defensive breakdowns”, which resulted in the team being dealt some humble pie, and explains what Winnipeg should look for ahead of the trade deadline.

TSN: Is Kyle Connor the most underrated player in the NHLJets forward Kyle Connor is coming off a hat-trick, and the game before that he set the franchise record with his 41st game-winning goal. Is Connor the most underrated player in the NHL? TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button shares his thoughts.

Sportsnet: How Rick Bowness has turned the Winnipeg Jets into legit Stanley Cup contenders. Ken Wiebe joined Real Kyper and Bourne to discuss how head coach Rick Bowness has turned the Winnipeg Jets into contenders and how his coaching style has shaped this year’s team.

Ice news:

Winnipeg Sun: ‘Built for right now’: Ice add horsepower for one more shot. If you haven’t been paying attention to the junior hockey club of ‘Peg city then you may want to start as they are one of the best in the country and they added a big piece as they try to make a run at a Memorial Cup.

Winnipeg Free Press: Ice all-in on Ostapchuk. (Paywall). Given the team they already had this is another quality weapon in head coach James Patrick’s arsenal.
