Jets' win over Preds clinches playoff spot

WINNIPEG—Captain Blake Wheeler wasn't certain at the beginning of the season if his Winnipeg Jets would contend for a playoff spot.

Now he has his answer.

The Jets clinched a berth in the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 5-4 shootout win over the Nashville Predators last night.

It will be their second playoff appearance since the franchise relocated to Winnipeg in 2011.

Jones racks up two more wins

NORTH BAY, Ont.—South Korea's EunJung Kim and the Olympic darling “Garlic Girls” used a pressure-heavy style to reach the podium at the Winter Games.

It didn't work against Canada's Jennifer Jones yesterday at the world women's curling championship.

Jones knocked off the Pyeongchang silver-medallists 8-4, then topped Olympic champion Anna Hasselborg of Sweden 8-4 last night.
