Here is what's in the news for Monday, March 19, 2012:

Recapping last night's devastating loss to the Carolina Hurricanes: "The Winnipeg Jets blew an opportunity to move into a tie for eighth place in the Eastern Conference on Sunday night, falling 4-3 to the Carolina Hurricanes at MTS Centre. Chad LaRose scored the game-winner with 1:22 left in the third period after some great work from captain Eric Staal, who scored twice and assisted on the winner." [Winnipeg Sun]

Our SB Nation pals at Canes Country offer a Carolina perspective on the lack of suspension to Jets defensman Zach Bogosian. [Canes Country]

Did the Jets blow a golden opportunity to improve their playoff chances? [Globe and Mail]

Eric Staal emphatically proved - at least on this night - that Jordan is in fact, not better. [WFP]

The Hurricanes were one of the few teams who have been able to come to Winnipeg to play the second game of back-to-backs and eliminate a one goal deficit heading into the third period. []

Don't sleep on the Hurricanes just yet. With tonight's win they sit only three points behind the Jets in the Eastern Conference playoff race. [Sports Club Stats]

Kelly Nestruck on what the return of the Jets has meant for Winnipeg's art scene: "Since the Jets returned home this season to huge fanfare, large arts institutions such as the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Manitoba Opera have all reported drops in attendance." [Globe and Mail]

Finally, more bad news for the Jets as Alexander Radulov should be in the line-up for the Nashville Predators when the two teams meet next Saturday. [On The Forecheck]
