Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

Following another tough loss the Jets hit the ice for practice with a few days to get back on track.

The Jets were left licking their wounds after a 4-2 loss to a Sabres team that had been winless in their previous seven games. It wasn’t the loss so much as the lack of push back in the 3rd period.
