Note: Tune into NHL Mid-Week on TSN 1290 Winnipeg tonight from 6-8 pm as the guys discuss all the latest NHL news including the Olympics and of course Team Canada.
Winnipeg Free Press: River City problems. Ed breaks down some different facets of the game including a wounded (in spirit) St. Louis, depression in Winnipeg, low shot totals and still no system.
Winnipeg Free Press: Noel knows Olympics a character-builder, but a taxing one. From the sounds of it his team could use the break to recoup from a heavy season.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets apologetic for pathetic performance. Players were at wits end last night in post-game interviews. I’ve never really heard the team speak like this before. It will be interesting to see how the team rebounds this week.
Winnipeg Sun: Setoguchi in Noel’s crosshairs after another Jets loss. It was not a banner game for the Jets forward who saw his ice time fall to an all season low. He played a total of two seconds in the 2nd period. Clearly coach Noel was sending a message.
Winnipeg Sun: The Incredible Journey — a Sun columnist’s extended road trip. First Buffalo News columnist Mike Harrington had a quest in and out of the Peg’ and following close on his heels is Paul Friesen. In both instances not sure either would say the games they saw were worth the trip.
Global Winnipeg: Jets left off Canadian Olympic roster. Captain Ladd acknowledged that he hasn’t done enough this season to merit inclusion on the list of players heading to Russia to represent this country.
TSN: Empty game. From high atop the ice surface Dennis Beyak called the game and reflects on the loss in this article.
