Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets, not for the first time this season, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory although this defeat occurred in overtime so they at least walked away with a single point as they gave up their lead with ten seconds left in regulation and then saw the Sharks take it 3-2 in extra time. The team is scheduled to practice at 12 noon. Stay tuned for a Practice Report.

Note II: The Moose concluded a very good homestand (6-1-1) and spent Monday as a travel day as they left for B.C. where they will begin a seven-game road trip against the Canucks in Abbotsford. Puck drop is at 9 PM CST.

Note III: The Ice only have nine regular season games remaining and it will be eight after they host the Medicine Hat Tigers this evening in Winnipeg. Puck drop is at 7:05 PM.
