Winnipeg Free Press: Bogo gives props to Pavs’ brilliance. When asked following the game what was the nicest save by Pavelec, Bogosian admitted it was on an error he made early in the game. All the players on this teams continue to praise the play of their goalie.
Winnipeg Free Press: Another thrilling drama. It was something but Jets fans are probably hoping for a little less drama and a little more scoring separation between their team and the competition.
Winnipeg Free Press: Bouncing back shows maturity. Two straight games. Two straight 3-1 leads in the 3rd period and both times the Jets failed to hold on to win in regulation. However as Gary says, it was massive that they were able to persevere and win the game in either a SO or OT.
Winnipeg Sun: One down, four to go for Winnipeg Jets to make NHL playoffs. Buff played the role of hero and now the Jets just need to keep the winning streak rolling. Kirk also touches on Pavelec making a save of the year candidate, his countrymen friends and putting things in perspective.
Winnipeg Sun: Crazy train keeps a-rolling. It is enough to give healthy people heart palpitations. Fans pay for the seat but they only need the edge.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets having trouble closing the deal. Ron Hainsey spoke about the team not closing the deal when they are up by a couple of goals with under 10 minutes to go in the 3rd period. It is a problem. The Jets won’t be able to have these types of gaffes against the Islanders on Saturday if they hope to continue this incredible winning streak.
Winnipeg Sun: Hold on against Hurricanes, win in OT for fifth straight victory. Just another crazy night in Winnipeg.
