Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

Jets hit the ice ahead for a skate before they take on the Hawks on Saturday.

The Jets are feeling good about themselves as they played a better overall team game last night in their 3-2 OT defeat of the Habs. They’ve improved to 6-3-1 on the season as they prepare to face an unexpectedly feisty Chicago team that sits third in the central just one point back of Winnipeg (although the Hawks have played one more game).

Skate news:

As per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun no Pierre-Luc Dubois nor Mason Appleton on the ice today for practice.
