Week of April 15th to 21st: Sunday Papers

Sunday, April 21st Jets news :



Scoreboard watch: Rangers @ Devils

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Bogo’s status uncertain. The hit by Okposo should be reviewed by the league. His shoulder went right into Bogosian’s head and how the refs failed to call a penalty on the ice is beyond understanding. Bogosian was rightly pissed off and tried to get to Okposo in the next few minutes. Despite staying in the game he just wasn’t 100% and had to leave in the 3rd.


Winnipeg Free Press: Where the devil was Kane in warm-up? We didn’t notice until the pre-game skate was well underway and then it was uncertain what this meant exactly. Coach Noel gave some vague answers post-game as to what this might have meant but it was likely because he has a lingering injury from the Tampa game. If you watched Kane skating last Thursday and then again on Saturday, it wasn’t the same player. Good for him for at least giving it a go knowing the importance of the game for his team.

Winnipeg Free Press: One is better than none in Jets’ emotional race to the finish. Looking at it from a glass half full perspective is the best way in which to evaluate a tough loss to a very good Islanders team.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets-Isles game an emotional roller-coaster. That game caused heart palpitations even for those with hearts working perfectly fine.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets aren’t miles behind the Isles. Considering the Jets played without Bogosian for parts of the game and a completely healthy Kane and they didn’t do too badly against the Isles. Regardless of how you feel about Jokinen, his loss meant that coach Noel had to shorten the bench which makes it tougher on the other forwards.

Winnipeg Sun: Fans get their money’s worth. I jokingly tweeted that fans paid for the seat but only need the edge, and this proved correct as that was easily one of the most exciting games of the year.


Winnipeg Sun: Gutsy play pays off for Winnipeg Jets. Even some of the players discussed post-game (listen below) that they were surprised that coach Noel pulled the goalie with just over two minutes to go in the 3rd. However it worked out and so coach Noel gets the praise for that decision.

CBC: Did You See That? Lubomir Visnovksy steals point from Jets. Not only that he robbed Kyle Wellwood of his chance to cement his name in the record books with the first every hat trick for the Jets 2.0.

Jets affiliate and prospect news:

Toronto Star: O’Dell scores shootout winner as IceCaps beat Marlies. The IceCaps are trying to salvage the small victories right now.

Yahoo Canada: Barrie Colts win big, wrest home-ice advantage from Bulls. After losing a close one last night, Mark Scheifele led his Colts in a 5-0 romp over Belleville. He finished the game with three points (2 G, 1 A) and has now tied Vincent Trocheck for top spot in playoff points.

Jets on a Deadline – Islanders 5 Jets 4 in shootout:


Winnipeg Jets: Andrew Ladd, Bryan Little, Ron Hainsey, Eric Tangradi and Kyle Wellwood.

Coach Noel post-game presser. Following his team’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Islanders, coach Noel spoke with the media.

New York Islanders: Coach Capuano, Travis Hamonic and John Tavares.

Illegal Curve Post-game podcast from the Press box: Host Drew Mindell and Analyst Richard Pollock break down the Jets play against the Islanders.

Jets on a Deadline: Game recaps, post-game audio, video highlights and the NHL.com 3 Stars of the night.

Monday Papers

Monday, April 15th Jets, affiliate and NHL news :

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Playoff math? Just win, baby. Unfortunately for the Jets that five game losing streak really might have cost them a post season spot. They are now forced to play catch-up and all the teams they are attempting to overtake refuse to lose.

Winnipeg Free Press: Enstrom out — now week to week. Coach Noel modified his day-to-day assessment to the dreaded week-to-week which means we likely won’t be seeing Tobias for a little while.


Winnipeg Sun: News and Notes. Ken covers the injury news regarding Enstrom as well as players staying focused and other missing Jets and IceCaps awards.

Metro News: Jets take a tour of Canadian Museum for Human Rights. The players had an opportunity for a sneak peek at the Museum which dominates the downtown landscape.

Edmonton Journal: Coach Perry Pearn shocked at Zach Redmond’s return. Interesting to read that of all the injuries that coach Pearn has been present for he considers Redmond’s the worst he has witnessed.

Illegal Curve: A pictorial summation of the Winnipeg Jets open practice. For those fans on the outside looking in, yesterday was a chance for those on the wait list to get preferential treatment. Fans were given access to the Jets practice. It was a party atmosphere inside the MTS Centre as approximately 2500+ showed up to watch their team run drills.


Illegal Curve: Jets post-practice audio. Blake Wheeler and Andrew Ladd spoke to the media.

Illegal Curve: Coach Claude Noel open skate audio. Status of Enstrom (From day-to-day to week-to-week). Playing without Enstrom. Clitsome playing well with Byfuglien. Watching the other games going on in the NHL yesterday?

Jets affiliate news:

TSN: Kolarik nets hat trick as Penguins spoil IceCaps’ home finale. Not the way the IceCaps wanted to end the season at Mile One Centre but fitting perhaps considering how things have gone for them this year. Despite three assists from the captain they dropped their final home game and now head on the road to finish off the season.

NHL news:

Globe and Mail: ‘Dream’ playoff matchups would be boon to CBC, TSN. Considering how many Canadian teams might be in the playoffs this year many fans are saying “what lockout” and that has the above networks salivating.

Globe and Mail: General managers on NHL’s firing line. Could be quite a different look to a number of teams next season.

Monday Afternoon links

Monday Afternoon links, April 15th Jets and NHL news :

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Using down time to prep for final six regular games. Now that they have had time to rest the sprint to the end begins. Six games in 10 days will show us what this team is made of.


Winnipeg Sun: Energized for date with Lightning. The Jets have got to be ready for puck drop tomorrow when a surly Tampa Bay team comes in to play spoilers in their final game as Southeast division rivals.

Winnipeg Jets official site: Museum tour. The Jets got a sneak peek at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and here are some of the pictures from their tour.

Illegal Curve: Coach Noel post-practice audio. Thought today’s practice was pretty good. Challenge first game back. His focus during the last couple of days. Excitement of the next 10 days. Biggest challenge for him as a coach this week. Sticking to the game plan (Using 4 lines vs. 3), not afraid to shorten but would prefer not to. Importance of getting scoring from 3rd and 4th line players. Will he match lines?

Illegal Curve: Jets players post-practice audio. We have audio from Evander Kane, Ondrej Pavelec, Olli Jokinen and Chris Thorburn.

Illegal Curve: Jets morning papers. If you missed any of the news from this morning we have you covered.

NHL news:

Edmonton Journal: Oilers replace fired GM Tambellini with MacTavish. The Oilers love recycling.

Tuesday Papers

Tuesday, April 16th Jets, Opposition (Lightning) and NHL news :



Scoreboard watch: Islanders @ Panthers | Leafs @ Capitals | Hurricanes @ Senators | Rangers @ Flyers

Note: Make sure to @ tweet @illegalcurve with your guess during tonight’s game you can win IC Gear by participating in our twitter Game Winning Goal and 50/50 contests. Remember that for your vote to qualify you must send in your guess by hashtaging (#) our Game Winning Goal (GWG) and 50/50 contest. (i.e. #ICGWG Wright #IC5050 $43,500.00).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: It’s one last gasp for this group of Jets. The time for tired cliches is officially over. Tonight is the first do or die (or the time for tired cliches is almost over) match of the next six.

Winnipeg Free Press: Burmistrov has heard the boos. Cannot always have sunshine and lollipops. He hears the cheers when they are merited (i.e. on this move he pulled) and similarly when he makes an error he can expect a negative reaction.


Winnipeg Free Press: Grinders share spotlight. When you get a goal from Chris Thorburn or James Wright it is seen as an extra bonus to the other tasks they are given on a nightly basis. These guys know their roles and if they can chip in with the occasional goal to help out the primary scorers on the team, coach Noel will take it, but that certainly isn’t the expectation.

Winnipeg Free Press: Noel’s task is at hand. It will be tough for coach Noel to stick to rolling four lines if they go down a goal or two. It is at this point, when the tendency to ride your big dogs becomes most prevalent, that he will need to continue to trust in all four lines.

Illegal Curve: Winnipeg Jets prospect Adam Lowry signs three year deal. The Jets obviously like what they see from this young man.

Winnipeg Sun: Ondrej Pavelec living out big-league dream. Ken gets some insight from the Jets net minder on how he decided to become a goalie and how his approach to the game continues to develop and progress.


Winnipeg Sun: Pavelec staying focused. While 38 games is certainly not a lot in the normal course, during this lockout shortened season Ondrej Pavelec has played all but four of his team’s games and if you ask him, he would be happy to have played them all.

Winnipeg Sun: Rested and ready. While this game certainly won’t end the Jets season if they lose, they simply cannot afford to have a let down game. They need to jump on Tampa early and sustain the pressure for the entire 60 minutes. If you want to take time off, you can in two weeks (i.e. out of the playoffs) but the Jets need to leave it all out on the ice for each and every one of the six games remaining starting tonight against the Bolts.

NHL.com: No pressure but Jets don’t have much wiggle room to make playoffs. On any given night in the NHL any team can beat another, so there is no time to be taking anyone lightly.

Illegal Curve: Coach Noel post-practice audio. Thought today’s practice was pretty good. Challenge first game back. His focus during the last couple of days. Excitement of the next 10 days. Biggest challenge for him as a coach this week. Sticking to the game plan (Using 4 lines vs. 3), not afraid to shorten but would prefer not to. Importance of getting scoring from 3rd and 4th line players. Will he match lines?

Illegal Curve: Jets post-practice audio. Evander Kane, Ondrej Pavelec, Olli Jokinen and Chris Thorburn.

Opposition (Lightening) news:

Tampa Bay Times: Garon knows tenure ending. Has to be tough knowing that you are the odd man (or goalie in this case) out. Especially considering that there are still has a few weeks to go in the season.

ESPN: Ben Bishop extended two years. Tampa feels strongly about Bishop clearly (although we suspect they felt the same about Lindback). Can they change the culture to be a bit more defensive minded?

Tampa Bay Tribune: Visor saves Thompson from worse injury. While a visor is not a guarantee to avoid injury, as was seen (no pun intended) in this instance, it can go a long way to preventing a significant issue.

NHL news:

The Tennessean: Preds’ playoff chances are gone. Just like that, the team that made it to the 2nd round of the 2012 playoffs have been eliminated from competing after they lost last night to the Canucks. Impressively this is just the second time in nine seasons that Nashville will miss the post season.

Globe and Mail: ‘Impatient’ MacTavish takes over for Tambellini. Will the trend of teams booming after relieving their general manager of their duties (Toronto & Columbus) continue in Oil town? While this season seems over in terms of post season aspirations, it shall be an interesting off season for Mac T and the Oilers brain trust.

Wednesday Papers

Wednesday, April 17th Jets and NHL news :



Scoreboard watch: Sabres @ Bruins

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Shootout ace Santorelli chips in. Just how critical these two points will be remains to be seen but we might be looking back at this extra one at the end of the season. Especially when you consider that all the teams the Jets needed to lose last night (Capitals, Islanders, Senators) won, with the exception of the New York Rangers.

Winnipeg Free Press: Shootout at MTS corral. Prior to game time, many were suggested a final score of 5-4 or 6-5 as the expectation was a high scoring affair.

Winnipeg Free Press: Leadership of Ladd again is the key. What more needs to be said about the leader of the Jets? He was simply fantastic last night as he put the team on his back. He now has more assists (23) this year in 43 games than he had in 82 games last year (22) and combined with his 18 goals has him 18th in the NHL for total points.


Winnipeg Sun: Captain Ladd comes through. His shootout goal was the insurance the Jets needed to secure the win and it was fitting that he scored it. Even though shootout goals don’t count in an individual tally, it was technically Ladd’s 3rd goal of the game and some Jets fans desperate to see their first hat trick, tossed hats onto the ice in celebration.

Winnipeg Sun: Snapshots. Jets on a nice little run right now. Strong 2nd periods. Finally getting some out-of-town help. Questionable call negates goal. No Stamkos on shootout. Pavelec’s black stick.

Winnipeg Sun: Just win baby! Love it or hate it, the shootout is a reality and the Jets now have a secret weapon as Mike “shootout specialist” Santorelli helped this team secure a critical two points. He wouldn’t share his secrets with us, but did share how much he enjoyed scoring in front of the MTS Centre crowd. Here is a quick hit of his goal in the shootout last night.

Winnipeg Sun: Third line gets kudos from coach. Coach Noel showed what happens when he rolls out the lines as he got some significant contributions from Burmistrov and company last night.

TSN: Jets run winning streak to four with win over Lightning. After losing five straight the Jets have turned this sinking ship around. They are still going to need to keep up this momentum and have some of their competition falter, but they have put themselves back into the playoff conversation.

Jets on a Deadline – Jets 4 Lightning 3 in SO:


Winnipeg Jets: Andrew Ladd, Bryan Little, Blake Wheeler and Mike Santorelli.

Coach Noel post-game presser. Following his team’s 4-3 SO win over the Lightning, coach Noel spoke with the media.

Tampa Bay Lightning: Coach Cooper, Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis. (Cooper audio is very interesting. St. Louis jokingly asks for more questions).

Illegal Curve Post-game podcast from the Press box: Host Drew Mindell and Analyst Richard Pollock break down the Jets play against the Lightning.

Jets on a Deadline. Game recaps, post-game audio, video highlights and the NHL.com 3 Stars of the night.

NHL news:

CBC: NHL adds 5 outdoor games in 2014, including 1 in Vancouver. In totally insane news, the NHL takes a unique concept and decides to mass produce it.

USA Today: Top prospects await bottom teams. There is another race going on as some teams fight for those final few playoff spots and that is a race to the bottom. Once there you have a very good chance to add a significant piece to your roster with a good pick in the deep 2013 Entry Draft.

Globe and Mail: Welcome to the mild, mild West. Long gone are the days Smythe division dominance of Edmonton and Calgary. Of course with the Jets moving West next season, Jets fans might not be too unhappy seeing the power outage in Alberta.

Wednesday Afternoon links

Wednesday Afternoon links, April 17th Jets news :

Note: Tune into the NHL Mid-Week Show on TSN Radio 1290 tonight from 6 pm to 7 pm (an hour instead of the usual two today) as the guys discuss all the latest NHL news. Guest: Ryan Rishaug (TSN).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Redmond on stint with IceCaps. This news is quite unbelievable considering the circumstances. From life threatening injury to conditioning assignment with St. John's. Quite a remarkable journey for the young defenceman.

TSN: Jets want to resurrect Winnipeg White Out as playoffs near. Count me as someone in favour of seeing the already crazy atmosphere at the MTS Centre hit another level if fans bring back the white out tradition from the Jets 1.0. While some might not be in favour (i.e. they own a blue jersey, home team wears dark colours) it is hard to argue against the memories the original white out elicits in this city. Ya or nay on the Whiteout? Of course all this talk of the whiteout is a bit premature but always fun to speculate.

Winnipeg Free Press: Ladd, Little, Wheeler: one of NHL’s top lines, says coach. Would you put the Jets top line up against the best in the NHL? Where do they rank against the other top lines in your mind?


Winnipeg Sun: Free-falling Hurricanes perfect foes for Jets playoff quest. They are the perfect victim and just the type of team that scares Jets fans. A team the Jets “should” beat but there is no guarantee that the Jet can bury the Canes. No better example than when these two teams met last time and a goalie named Peters and we aren’t talking about Pete stopped them cold.

WHL: Lowry named WHL player of the Year nominee. Been quite the whirlwind for the Jets pick in 2011. First he gets signed by Winnipeg and now he is named player of the Year in the WHL nominee. He had 45 goals and 43 assists for the Swift Current Broncos this season.

Illegal Curve: Coach Noel post-practice press conference. Pixalized after his disallowed goal. Rarely is he demonstrative, what caused this? Does he ever hear from NHL if they got call wrong. Ladd setting the tone. Importance of players who have playoff experience considering number of players who have none on this team. Any difference with Ladd’s line this season? Did he talk before the season about being put together as a line? Streaks – finding solutions. Does he need to look back at the past Carolina game? Any chance of Antropov tomorrow night?

Illegal Curve: Morning Papers. If you missed any of the Jets news from earlier, we have you covered.

Thursday Papers

Thursday, April 18th Jets, Opposition (Hurricanes) and NHL news :

Scoreboard watch: Islanders @ Leafs | Panthers @ Rangers | Capitals @ Senators

Note
: Make sure to @ tweet @illegalcurve with your guess during tonight’s game you can win IC Gear by participating in our twitter Game Winning Goal and 50/50 contests. Remember that for your vote to qualify you must send in your guess by hashtaging (#) our Game Winning Goal (GWG) and 50/50 contest. (i.e. #ICGWG Wheeler #IC5050 $42,625.00).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Noel puts top trio among NHL elite. Led by Andrew Ladd they have certainly been red hot for most of the season and their importance to this team cannot be understated. When they went cold the teams scoring shut down. Now that they are red hot, the team finds themselves on a four game winning streak.

Winnipeg Free Press: Respect due for Hainsey. While he is often derided for his lack of offensive production, Hainsey has been a work horse, playing in all 42 games for the Jets and currently sits sixth in the league in blocked shots at 106. As tirelessly as he has been on the ice, he worked just as hard for his fellow players during the lockout as a member of the negotiating committee. For these reasons he was unanimously voted by the Winnipeg branch of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.




Winnipeg Free Press: Nod ‘an honour, obviously, but unexpected’. Surprising to see Ron Hainsey almost lost for words. The always insightful Jets blue liner seemed touched that he had been nominated for the award.

Winnipeg Free Press: Santorelli finding his niche with Jets. He has been a nice fit with his new team. Hopefully he can share his shootout skill with some of his team mates.

Winnipeg Free Press: Burmi goes from doghouse to penthouse. Such is the beauty of the NHL, that you can quickly find yourself going from dispensable to indispensable in the blink of an eye. Once Burmistrov showed that he was willing to do what coach Noel & company were asking of him, he has been rewarded with more and more responsibility and ice time.

Winnipeg Free Press: Redmond’s rescuers to receive honour. As well they should since their quick thinking not only saved his career but also his life.

Winnipeg Free Press: Current Jets tackle trivia test. Meech, Bogosian, Clitsome and coach Huddy put their knowledge of the Jets 1.0 to the test.

Winnipeg Sun: Vote of confidence. Paul gives his reasons for nominating Ron Hainsey for the Masterton.

Winnipeg Sun: Zach Redmond returns to action with IceCaps. Still cannot believe that he is returning to the ice so quickly after sustaining such a horrific injury.

Winnipeg Sun: Hole in One for True North foundation. Two major brands get together to feed off the popularity of the other.

Winnipeg Sun: No love for shootout. Fans would groan if a game got to the shootout as it was well known that Pavelec wasn’t having the best luck in these game concluding contests. However something has changed of late (although that is clearly not his disdain for the shootout itself) as he has looked much better during the shootout.


Winnipeg Sun: Holy (bleep)! Coach Noel showed some confusion when asked about being pixalated during the Jets/Bolts highlights. Evander Kane adds some interesting thoughts on the refs. Lots of praise for Ladd. Coming of age for the 1st line. Kane on the playoff race.

Globe and Mail: Jets want to resurrect Winnipeg White Out as they close in on playoff berth. I’m on record as saying I like the White Out tradition but I also think you shouldn’t put the cart before the horse. This talk can pick back up at this time one week from today when the Jets have played their final game against the Habs and we should have a pretty good idea if they are in the playoffs or not.

Illegal Curve: Coach Noel post-practice audio. Pixalized after his disallowed goal. Rarely is he demonstrative, what caused this? Does he ever hear from NHL if they got call wrong. Ladd setting the tone. Importance of players who have playoff experience considering number of players who have none on this team. Any difference with Ladd’s line this season? Did he talk before the season about being put together as a line? Streaks – finding solutions. Does he need to look back at the past Carolina game? Any chance of Antropov tomorrow night?

Jets opposition (Hurricanes) news:

News and Observer: Skinner out, but not clear how long. Jets fans won’t be seeing the smooth skating Skinner as he has returned to Raleigh following the game in Ottawa.

NHL news:

Globe and Mail: Lowe in damage control after press conference gaffe. It is a shame that he is back tracking because it is rare that someone actually speaks what is on their mind, so while you might not like what he said, those are clearly his thoughts. His apology is simply a reaction to the negative response those thoughts he verbalized elicited.

Columbus Dispatch: Dare to dream. With the victory over the Ducks last night, the very surprising Blue Jackets have slipped back into the 8th spot in the Western Conference.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Keeping eye on playoff spot. So much is going to happen between today and next Thursday that the speculation as to if this, then that is enough to drive you to distraction. Jets have control over one thing and that is how they play. Continue to win and play hard and find out after Game 48 where you are positioned.


Winnipeg Free Press: Current Jets tackle trivia. Derek Meech not knowing a past #7 is pretty weak. Good to see that current players have knowledge of the hockey history in this province.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets and Hurricanes pre-game video. A game preview and at the bottom, Ken provides you with video from Coach Muller, Jordan Staal, Blake Wheeler, Andrew Ladd, Grant Clitsome, Kyle Wellwood, Bryan Little and Ondrej Pavelec.

TSN: Pavelec faces Peters. Some stats and streaks heading into tonight’s all important game.

Illegal Curve: Coach Noel pre-game scrum. Size of the Hurricanes. His philosophy using top line vs. top line. Staying focused on his team. Does he need to worry about his team being ready to go? Getting up for every single game. Was it a good thing (i.e. wakeup call to his team) that Tampa came back from a 3-1 deficit? What has he liked about Pavelec during this stretch? What has enabled the teams to win at home? Does he have to keep the linup the same during a win streak? When Antropov returns is he back then?

Illegal Curve: Jets vs. Hurricanes game preview. Ezra brings you up to speed on tonight’s match.


Illegal Curve: Morning Papers. If you missed any news, we have you covered including news that defenceman Ron Hainsey will be the Jets nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

Opposition (Hurricanes) news:

TSN: Looking at Cowen’s hit on Skinner. Former NHL ref Kerry Fraser tackles whether this should have been a penalty or not.

Friday Papers

Friday, April 19th Jets news :



Scoreboard watch: Rangers @ Sabres

Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 Saturday as the guys discuss all the latest Winnipeg Jets and NHL news starting at 8 am until 11 am due to the 2 pm start time of the Jets and Islanders game. Guests: Jack Edwards (Play-by-play voice of the Bruins), Arthur Staple (Newsday) and Bruce Dowbiggin (Globe and Mail).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Bogo gives props to Pavs’ brilliance. When asked following the game what was the nicest save by Pavelec, Bogosian admitted it was on an error he made early in the game. All the players on this teams continue to praise the play of their goalie.

Winnipeg Free Press: Another thrilling drama. It was something but Jets fans are probably hoping for a little less drama and a little more scoring separation between their team and the competition.

Winnipeg Free Press: Bouncing back shows maturity. Two straight games. Two straight 3-1 leads in the 3rd period and both times the Jets failed to hold on to win in regulation. However as Gary says, it was massive that they were able to persevere and win the game in either a SO or OT.

Winnipeg Sun: One down, four to go for Winnipeg Jets to make NHL playoffs. Buff played the role of hero and now the Jets just need to keep the winning streak rolling. Kirk also touches on Pavelec making a save of the year candidate, his countrymen friends and putting things in perspective.


Winnipeg Sun: Crazy train keeps a-rolling. It is enough to give healthy people heart palpitations. Fans pay for the seat but they only need the edge.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets having trouble closing the deal. Ron Hainsey spoke about the team not closing the deal when they are up by a couple of goals with under 10 minutes to go in the 3rd period. It is a problem. The Jets won’t be able to have these types of gaffes against the Islanders on Saturday if they hope to continue this incredible winning streak.

Winnipeg Sun: Hold on against Hurricanes, win in OT for fifth straight victory. Just another crazy night in Winnipeg.

TSN: Jets run winning streak to five games. So many guys have contributed to this streak but the Jets top line deserves major credit as they have 30 points collectively during the five game win streak. Ladd has 11 points (4 G, 7 A), Wheeler has 10 points (3 G, 7 A) and Bryan Little with 9 points (1 G, 8 A).

Saturday Papers

Saturday, April 20th Jets news :



Scoreboard watch: Capitals @ Canadiens | Leafs @ Senators |

Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 today as the guys discuss all the latest Winnipeg Jets and NHL news starting at 8 am until 11 am due to the 2 pm start time of the Jets and Islanders game. Guests: Jack Edwards (Play-by-play voice of the Bruins), Arthur Staple (Newsday) and Bruce Dowbiggin (Globe and Mail).

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: Line of fire. That is a lot of time to develop the right chemistry and it is clear that these three know how to play with each other.

Winnipeg Free Press: Top Trios. And considering the cold streak they went on during the five game losing streak and they could be even higher. Thankfully for Jets fans they have gotten hot at the right time.


Winnipeg Free Press: Major matchup. Stud vs. Stud is what this could have been labeled. Shall be quite the battle throughout today’s contest.

Winnipeg Free Press: Wins + wins = post-season. Can the Jets maintain this pace? Courtesy of this home stand we will find out if they can make it a perfect six for six today.

Winnipeg Sun: Is Jets winning streak too little too late? Jets fans have to hope it isn’t and they can go along way to ensuring this by beating a very good Islanders team this afternoon. Of course, if when all is said and done, the Jets find themselves on the outside looking in, they can look back at that mini sweep to the Capitals. But for now, only thing to do is continue looking forward at their next opponent.

Winnipeg Sun: Clitsome & Bogosian – The best defence. Coach Noel has said that if he felt the lineup needed tweaking that they wouldn’t be afraid to make a change just because they were in the midst of a winning streak. Consider that the Jets gave up a two goal lead the last two games and perhaps the coach sees something that could use a change.

Winnipeg Sun: Time for Winnipeg Jets to close the gap. All this winning and all the Jets have done is simply kept pace with the rest of the teams vying for a playoff spot. Another 60 minute challenge for the home squad and the crowd is going to play an important role today.


Winnipeg Sun: Jets face red-hot Islanders on 5-game win streak. The time for winning against ‘lesser’ opponents is over. The Jets now have to face a team ahead, not behind them in the standings for the first time in awhile and these Islanders are red-hot. Going to be an excellent test for Winnipeg.

NHL.com: Best moment of the week? Wings, Niemi, Ladd. The Jets captain is up for this honour by virtue of his strong play against the Bolts on Tuesday. In re-watching the highlights I have to say that I think this was probably the most expressive I’ve seen the captain after he scores the shootout winning goal for his team.

Jets affiliate and prospect news:

NHL.com: Renewed focus in second period lifts Hamilton Bulldogs over St. John’s IceCaps. Young Finnish goalie Juho Olkinuora made his first professional appearance and it was a rough night for him as he gave up three goals in the loss. On a positive note, Zach Redmond continuing his miraculous recovery, got an assist on the lone goal for St. John’s and added three shots on net.

The Telegram: There and back again, a goaltender’s tale. Quite a bit about the newest net minder in the orgranizaton including his preference to be called Jussi instead of Juho. Some other tid bits about the Finnish goalie who had his first start for the IceCaps last night.

Yahoo Canada: Brassard scores twice as Bulls beat Colts for 1-0 series lead. The Jets have two 2011 Entry Draft picks facing off as 1st rounder Mark Scheifele takes on 5th rounder Austen Brassard. Last night (Game Summary here) both players looked very good but it was Brassard who skated away with the Game 1 victory. His two goals, including the game winner with under two minutes to go in the 3rd, led his team to the win and halted the Colts eight game winning streak in the playoffs. Scheifele finished with two assists on both Barrie goals giving him 18 points in just nine games which is good enough for second in OHL playoff scoring. Game 2 is tonight at 6:05 pm cst.

Jets opposition (Islanders) news:

Newsday: Islanders on verge of playoff berth. Both teams are desperate for the points today which should translate to one amazing contest for fans of either team.

New York Times: Islanders expect playoff atmosphere in Winnipeg. I believe it was Evander Kane the other day who said if you cannot get motivated for these types of games then there is something wrong and he is absolutely right. While fans would hope their Jets would be comfortably in a playoff position, I expect today’s game and the atmosphere to be a preview of what we might see if the Jets make the post season. Of course, a win and two points will go a long way to making this a reality.

National Post: Islanders stay focused on playoffs despite talk of early move to Brooklyn. This team has done very well on the road so they are not likely to be too worried about what is happening back in New York.

NHL news:

Ottawa Citizen: Erik Karlsson expected back in time for playoffs. The healing powers of some hockey players are quite remarkable. Fans in Winnipeg have been marveling at the comeback of Zach Redmond from his life threatening injury to playing his first game back in the AHL last night. Now fans in Ottawa are about to see an unexpected return as their Norris trophy winning defenceman returned to practice yesterday.

Globe and Mail: Finishing strong no guarantee of a long playoff run. I remember I took a look at this a few years back as I was hoping to see if there was a pattern from teams playing well over the final 10 games of the regular season and whether that would translate to success in the playoffs.
