Jets slow out of gate in practice, can't do same against Blackhawks

It seems it took a little more than a day off to recharge the batteries of the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets returned to practice, Wednesday, and were a little slow out of the gate, much to the consternation of head coach Claude Noel. “That’s our team, to a degree,” Noel said after the session. “Just didn’t want it to get any worse.” Noel compared it to a kids’ practice...
