Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Keeping you up-to-date with all the latest pro hockey news in Manitoba.

Note: The Jets had a practice on Friday as they prepared for today’s game against the Avalanche where we learned Nino Niederreiter won’t be ready to go this afternoon. No morning skate for the Jets. All the relevant news will be posted in the pre-game report so check back for that. Puck drop is at 3 PM CDT.

Note II: This evening, after the final buzzer sounds between Winnipeg and Colorado, 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.

Note III: The Moose look to get closer to clinching a playoff spot when they kick off their final home series of the regular season this afternoon in Winnipeg against the Wild. And the scoreboard watching was favourable to Manitoba on Friday night. While a win won’t clinch them a playoff spot they could do so this evening if they win and the Wolves lose in any fashion to the Griffins this evening. Puck drop is at 2 PM CDT.

Note IV: Be sure to join us this morning for the Illegal Curve Hockey Show for two hours of Jets talk starting at 9 AM. We will be joined by Sean Reynolds of Sportsnet and former NHLer Wendell Clark.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Jets looked like old, impenetrable selves in Dallas win. Picking up wins but being dominated isn’t a sure fire way to inspire confidence as we saw when they defeated the Predators but gave up 17 scoring chances. On Thursday against the top ranked Stars they looked like the Jets of earlier this season who were a solid 5 on 5 team.
