WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Jets coach Claude Noel speaks in simple, straight-forward terms a lot of the time. He is one of these what-you-see-is-what-you-get leaders.
So, it should come as no surprise to see his illustration for Winnipeg this season, especially when his Jets just missed the playoffs last season.
``I clearly see that we have to make the playoffs,'' he said in June. ``But it's not easy to make the playoffs.''
Last season, the Jets finished ninth in the East, four points behind the No. 8 New York Islanders. Winnipeg captured hearts in Canada and was in contention into the final week of the season. In the end, the Jets seemed to have everything, in fact, except a berth.
So, like some other teams in Canada - Calgary and Edmonton last year - the Jets will try, try again to find that elusive spot this season. It won't be easy, as Noel points out. The Jets are now in the Western Conference, as part of NHL realignment, and are in a division with Stanley Cup-champion Chicago, Minnesota and St. Louis.
Winnipeg opens vs. Edmonton on Oct. 1.
|CHICAGO: CHICAGO (AP) - The last time Chicago won the Stanley Cup, the team was dismantled during the offseason and the title defense ended in the first round of the playoffs.
Not so much this time. When the Blackhawks hit the ice next week for their opener against Washington, it will be a very familiar group.
Jonathan Toews (tayvz) and company are all set to go for their second consecutive NHL. There was no salary-cap purge this summer, leaving the Blackhawks largely intact as they try to become the first team to repeat since Detroit won it all in 1998.
The defending champs open the season at home Oct. 1 against Washington.

*Jets-Blackhawks Preview* =========================
By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer
Winnipeg (6-8-2) at Chicago (9-2-4), 8:00 p.m. EDT
The Chicago Blackhawks easily dispatched the Winnipeg Jets in captain Jonathan Toews' return to his hometown this past weekend.
After visiting the White House earlier this week, the Blackhawks will try for another dominant performance against the Jets in Wednesday night's rematch at the United Center.
Chicago (9-2-4) scored five unanswered goals Saturday in a 5-1 win in Winnipeg, matching its most lopsided victory of the season. The Blackhawks, however, couldn't build on their third straight win the following night as they fell 3-2 in overtime to visiting Calgary.
Marian Hossa scored the tying goal with 4:19 left in regulation but Chicago couldn't get another shot past Reto Berra in his NHL debut. The Blackhawks outshot the Flames 44-30.
"We did put pucks at him, but we didn't get enough rebounds and we didn't get enough traffic," coach Joel Quenneville said.
The Blackhawks left for the nation's capital after that game and were honored Monday for their second Stanley Cup title in four seasons. They'll get back to work by trying to earn a sixth straight win over the Jets franchise, which relocated from Atlanta after the 2010-11 season.
In its first road game after that move, Winnipeg lost 4-3 to Chicago on Oct. 13, 2011, in the teams' last matchup at the United Center.
The Jets have gone 1-3-1 in their last five on the road, but they ended their third three-game losing streak of the season Monday, following up the defeat to Chicago by beating visiting Detroit 4-2.
The Jets (6-8-2) scored three unanswered goals in the final 22:56 with former Blackhawks forward Michael Frolik tallying the first of those, which was his first in 15 games. Another former Chicago player, Andrew Ladd, capped the scoring with his first goal in 10 contests.
"We will build on the positives and make sure we keep things in perspective and move forward and try to focus on playing the right way," coach Claude Noel said. "I thought we played the right way tonight, and I thought we played it for 60 minutes. It was good to see."
It's uncertain if Monday's winner Al Montoya or top goaltender Ondrej Pavelec will be in net in Chicago. Pavelec was pulled against the Blackhawks on Saturday after giving up four goals on 14 shots. Montoya stopped 10 of 11.
"We'll look at it and assess it," Noel said. "We'll consider (going back to Montoya)."
Pavelec, 4-7-2 with a 3.09 goals-against average this season, has gone 0-2-2 with a 4.49 GAA in four all-time matchups with Chicago. Montoya, 2-1-0 with a 1.69 GAA, has gone 0-0-2 with a 2.99 GAA in three career appearances versus the Blackhawks.
The Jets have killed off 15 of 16 penalties in the last five games while the Blackhawks have scored a power-play goal in seven of eight, going 7 for 28 with the man advantage over that stretch.
Winnipeg has gone 1 for 37 on the power play in the past 11 contests.
