Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Fans not planning ditch day for Monday gameFans could stay up-to-date by listening to TSN Radio 1290 broadcast or following @illegalcurve for the latest updates from the game if you cannot tune in yourself.

Winnipeg Free Press:  No flow for JetsThe game was not what many expectedNeed to change things quickly on this short road trip to Boston and Washington.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Pavelec far from razor-sharpThinking back to the game it didn’t feel like Pavelec wasn’t sharp.  It felt more like his defence let him downWhat do you think?

Winnipeg Free Press:  Big Mac sums it up best:  BlechIt was ugly.  It played more like a game in mid summer than mid winter.  But both teams were forced to deal with the same conditions so you cannot use that as an excuse.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Lockout? What lockoutJets fans spoke of booing Ron Hainsey for his role in the lockout but he was cheered last night when his name was announced.   The True North chant was loud as ever during the anthem.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Toss this one into the trash basketIt really was a let down.  The Jets are now 0-2 in home openers in their short existence although yesterday’s game they could have easily won if they get a few bounces.

Winnipeg Sun:  Fans just glad Jets are backIt was an odd atmosphere yesterday.  At some points the building felt electric while at other times it felt like it was a game in mid January and not the home opener.  Still, overall, fans were quite enthused with the return of the Jets.

Winnipeg Sun:  Defence struggles against SenatorsIt was not a banner day for the Jets defence.  Luckily, coach Noel and his staff took to the road immediately following the game and will work on improving the level of play.  With the multiple mistakes which became either goals or scoring chances, there is plenty of room for improvement.

Winnipeg Sun:  Back to drawing board for JetsIt wasn’t the type of game you felt either team really deserved to win, but the Jets just couldn’t get it done when they had the chance.

Winnipeg Sun:  Scheifele passes first testHe bounced around to some different lines and while he continues to show his creativity with the puck, he still needs to increase his strength significantly.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets don’t have time to repeat last year’s performanceJets cannot afford to get into a big hole and with games against tough opponents upcoming that is exactly what this team can be looking at unless they get their act together quickly.
