Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

A report of the Jets skate at the IcePlex.


While fans are still basking in the success of a fun filled Heritage Classic weekend, the Jets are dealing with the reality of a 3-0 loss yesterday to the Oilers that saw them move to 2-3-0 on the season.  They were back on the ice at the IcePlex today for a practice before they left for Dallas.

Post-skate player audio:

Blake Wheeler:  Getting back to routine.  Losing game, but still relishing a big weekend for Winnipeg.  Importance of the upcoming games.

Tyler Myers:  Improving the team’s record in the division.  Three of next nine are against Stars, like the mini-playoff feel of that?  Limiting errors that lead to goals.

Post-skate coach audio:

Paul Maurice:  How was it different following that loss after you factor in the entire weekend?  Good to get your club back into it with three Central division games?  A look ahead to this week’s games.  Importance to see how this team responds this week?  How does he approach a marathon stretch like the Jets have upcoming?  Good opportunity for the team to gel?  Contemplating moves or is it too small a sample size?  AHL call ups?  Does he worry about a Heritage Classic hangover?  Working on the power play, is it too soon to panic?  No exact science to the PP?  Goals coming in bunches against, is that a function of youth?
