Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets had a practice on Tuesday which saw a forward swap (Saku Maenalanen for Karson Kuhlman) ahead of tonight’s contest against the Flames. This was originally billed as a game 7 type of battle. However with Calgary blowing it last night against Chicago and while there is still a lot riding on this game, there is not quite as much as there would have been had they won the game. There will be a 10 AM optional morning skate. All the relevant news will be posted in the pre-game report so check back for that. Puck drop is at 6:30 PM CDT.

Note II: This evening, after the final buzzer sounds between Winnipeg and Calgary, we want you to be part of the conversation on the Illegal Curve Post-Game Show as we discuss and analyze the results of the game.
