Winnipeg Jets Playoff Practice Report

After a day off on Sunday the Jets are back on the ice today.

The Jets were off on Sunday after three straight days of practice and while they may have been hoping to know who their second round opponent will be they will not know that information until later tonight when the Habs and Leafs do battle in game 7 of their series in Toronto.  If the Leafs win then the Jets will play game 1 on Wednesday in Ontario and if the Habs win then Montreal will fly to Winnipeg for game 1 on Wednesday.
