Winnipeg Free Press: Grit, gimmicks stifle Jets, fans. The anthem move was well played as the team decided to sing the Canadian national anthem in French to try to avoid fans being able to pay homage to the Jets ownership group with the standard ‘True North’ yell. Unfortunately for our southern brethren they must be unaware that Manitoba is quite bilingual and fans rolled with the change and yelled ‘True North’ during the appropriate time. Paul also looks at the Jets central troubles, Buff rolling along, Ellerby stepping in and who is up next.
Winnipeg Free Press: Bogo’s time on shelf extended. When coach Noel moves from day-to-day to week-to-week fans know it is a more serious concern.
Winnipeg Free Press: Trouba closer to return. While it doesn’t sound like it will be imminent, the Jets couldn’t be happier to see the young rookie making continued progress. While they would have needed him in the lineup regardless, they especially would like to see his return sooner rather than later due to the decimated D ranks.
Winnipeg Sun: Streak snapped by Wild. While the Jets have been playing well of late they came up against a team playing even better. Goalie Josh Harding was great when he needed to be and the Wild capitalized on a mistake late in the game to snap the four game Jets win streak.
Winnipeg Sun: Keaton Ellerby fitting in nicely with Jets. Ellerby seemed to relish the opportunity to take on the heavy minutes that coach Noel gave him.
TSN: Jets win streak ends with loss to Wild. Dennis breaks down the game from his vantage point.
