Winnipeg Free Press: Jets news and notes. Hainsey uncertain to start tonight in Beantown, Canes coach compares Jets to Thrashers, are Burmistrov struggles over?
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets reach altitude of .500. As captain Ladd goes, so go the Jets. The Jets captain has steered this team to a .500 record largely as a result of his very strong play the last few games. He has been very noticeable all over the ice.
TSN: Jets moving in the right direction. The Jets definitely played a very good road game. To hear more of Dennis thoughts on the Jets be sure to tune into today's Illegal Curve Radio Show from 12-3pm, as Dennis will be our guest at 12:30 pm.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets snapshots - Great road game. Fast pace to game, East is tight, Jets problems in extra time, Wheeler leads team in +/-, penalty trouble rears head again, Antropov's skill, Fehr scoring chances, Mason's hard work, coach Noel line mixing, Ladd point streak, Bryan Little's improved play, Bogosian's strong play, on to the Bruins.
Winnipeg Free Press: Hockey history is deeper than our love affair with the Jets. Alan Small takes a look at some of the hockey books that are available this season including one that looks back at hockey history in this city going back to the early 1900's. If you head to Chapters/Indigo before Sunday you can take advantage of their Black Friday (since when did we start celebrating this in Canada) of buy 3 books, get the 4th free deal.
Jets Affiliate news - St. John's IceCaps:
The Telegram: Marlies take OT win. The re-match takes place tonight at 7:30 pm and you can bet IceCaps coach Keith McCambridge will have his troops ready.
Jets next opponent news - Boston Bruins:
Boston Herald: Tim Thomas back in net. The Jets are facing the 37 year old Thomas who has been instrumental in the Bruins sizzling hot November.
NESN: Daniel Paille flashes old form. He has returned to the ice after a pretty bad injury and was instrumental in rallying the Bruins against the Wings yesterday.
Boston Herald: First-quality work by Bruins' 4th line. A line that can score and bring some ruckus, and no we aren't talking about the Jets GST line which wasn't together for yesterday's game against the Canes. The trio of Thornton, Paille and Campbell were used at critical moments against the Wings, showing coach Julien's trust in his 4th line.
Boston Herald: Bruins' streak ends at 10 with shootout loss. The B's still have points in 11 straight games, so the Jets will have to bring their 'A' game in order to leave TD Garden Arena with all the points.
Boston Herald: Few inches go long way. Few teams want to go 1 on 1 with the Wings in a shootout, so when Chara's blast missed the goal in OT, Bruins fans had to know their team was in trouble against the talented/dynamic Wings shooters.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets gird up to face Stanley Cup champions. Perhaps the biggest test for the Jets in the last few weeks is how they respond to a game against the sizzling hot Cup champs.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets set to face defending champs in Boston. Should be a good goaltending duel between Pavelec and Thomas.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets broadcaster visits former Bruins teammates. I didn’t realize that Hnidy’s name didn’t go on the Cup. While I'm sure he would have liked to have seen his name be immortalized on the Stanley Cup, given the size of his Cup ring, it isn't exactly too bad a prize.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets have a solid backup plan. Mason is one of the hardest working Jets players at practice and despite being without NHL game action for over a month, played a pretty solid game for the Jets in relief of Ondrej Pavlec.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets captain carrying load. Scoring a memorable game-winning goal (his 100th) against one of his closest friends (Cam Ward) had to be quite the experience for the Jets no-nonsense captain.
ESPN: Mixed feelings for Stuart, Wheeler on Cup. Has to be extremely difficult on Mark Stuart who spent almost 6 seasons with the B’s before he was dealt to Atlanta.
Jets next opposition news – Boston Bruins:
Winnipeg Free Press: Bruins’ centre has kind word for Jets coach. Always interesting to hear what a player who formerly played for coach Noel has to say about the positive attributes the Jets coach possesses.
Masslive.com: Bruins look to continue point streak against Jets. How will the Jets do as they get set to meet the red hot Bruins in the first of four contests this season?
