Hey all! Here is our feature running Monday through Friday that will bring you up to date on what's going on in the media pertaining to the Winnipeg Jets.

Here is what's in the news for Thursday, March 15, 2012:

Recapping last night's win over the Dallas Stars. [Winnipeg Sun]

Our SB Nation pals at Defending Big D offer more from a Stars perspective: "After out-lasting the Minnesota Wild last night the Stars hoped to get greedy and pull points in both games but the lead in the legs when faced with an opponent that had just enjoyed a four day break (inexplicable scheduling) made it difficult, and they just couldn't match the intensity level throughout as the Jets were a step quicker to every puck." [Defending Big D]

More on Jets vs. Stars: "It is often said the most-satisfying jobs are those sweat-soaked tasks you do yourself. Case in point: we give you the Winnipeg Jets and their 5-2 throttling of the Dallas Stars in front of another packed house of 15,004 at the MTS Centre." [WFP]

As soon as Winnipeg's post season flame looks all but extinguished, Jets players find a way to stoke the fire from a gentle flicker to a roaring fervor. That's some Ed Tait level hyperbole for your Thursday morning, folks. [Globe and Mail]

More on the invasion of Jets fans who took to the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary last Friday to cheer on their team. [Winnipeg Sun]

The Winnipeg Jets released their mobile app yesterday. The Jets app is now available on Apple, BlackBerry and Android platforms. []

Nicklas Backstrom continues to practice for the Washington Capitals, but he won't be ready for Friday night's game here in Winnipeg. Adversely, Zach Bogosian's game-day status is still uncertain. [Washington Post]

Finally, Sean Avery's agent rebuffs any notion that his client plans on retiring at the end of the year. This comes on the heels of Avery's Bravo interview in which he claimed to have thrown his skates in the Hudson River. Keep in mind, throughout the interview, Avery seemed to have his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. [CBC]
