Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show today on TSN 1290 Winnipeg from noon until 3 pm. The guys have an action packed show including a breakdown of yesterday’s Jets/Flyers contest, a look ahead to the game Sunday against the Wild and all the rest of the news from across the NHL. Guests: Jay Feaster (GM of the Calgary Flames), Alan Strachan (Has a new book on Wayne Gretzky) and Mike Greenlay (color commentator for Minnesota Wild television broadcasts).
Winnipeg Free Press: Just gotta love these shootouts. At least Pavelec is consistent about his disdain for the shootout. Despite riding a three game SO win streak within their four game winning streak, Pavelec still maintains his dislike of the format for ending tied hockey games. Of course with the Jets sudden prowess perhaps they should just embrace this means of winning.
Winnipeg Free Press: Pavelec takes the weight, Jets take the wins. When your the #1 guy you sometimes get the call to step up and last night was an example.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets win in shootout again. Ken examines the entire game from start to finish. I was a fan of Buff’s two goal celebrations, both the bow & arrow shot as well as the jig he danced at centre ice.
Winnipeg Sun: Snapshots – Shootouts are the Jets’ best friend. The Jets have suddenly become experts at this form of ending contests. Paul also looks at Buff’s centre ice dance (I called it more of a jig), the Jets fast starts, Flyers targeting Kane, Zoomie’s guy and Redmond parked upstairs.
TSN: Jets stay hot in shootout with win over Flyers. Dennis gives you his insight from up above as he saw the game.
The Telegram: Sharks swim away with shootout win over IceCaps. The Jets farm club also went to a SO but didn’t have the same success as the parent team.
