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 and elsewhere in the NHL.
Here is what's in the news for Thursday, March 22, 2012:
Hopefully it's not a preview of Friday's game, but the Hershey Bears (Capitals affiliate) defeated the St. John's IceCaps last night by a score of 3-2. [Penn Live]
Claude Noel offers more on the disappointment in Pittsburgh: "I never watched the tape back from last night and my thoughts today aren’t really much different than last night. The game was what it was. It was a hard situation to stop. I may take time today to look at the game, parts of the game. I gotta dig in and just take a look... I mean, you’ve got to give them credit. They’re a good team and that doesn’t change today." [WFP]
Paul Friesen on the Jets being down, but not out. But seriously, it's bad you guys. [Winnipeg Sun]
Catching up with Carl Klingberg as he completes his first full professional season in North America "The difference is this is with same team all the time, the same league all the time. You have to always make sure you’re prepared and not getting too comfortable because things are always the same. "But that’s a test for every player coming into this league. I must say I like it better over here, even if it also takes more energy out of you. You need to stay focused every game, ready to go to work." [The Telegram]
Remember when we collectively laughed about Ryan Miller becoming a shadow of the man who collected the 2010 Vezina Trophy? Yeah... he's now single-handedly dragging the Buffalo Sabres into a playoff position. After blanking the Montreal Canadiens 3-0 last night, Miller now has six shutouts on the year, good enough to tie for third best in the league. [Globe and Mail]
Dirk Hoag of On the Forecheck uses Gabriel Desjardins League Equivalency formula to assess Alexander Radulov's potential point totals as he returns makes his return to the Nashville Predators. [On the Forecheck]
Finally, congratulations to the Winnipeg Wild who captured the Manitoba AAA Midget Championship last night. [WFP]
