WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets know they have to improve their defensive play if they want to make the playoffs this season.

Defenceman Tobias Enstrom says they have to be better in their own end and they have to be better on the road.

But with a short training camp and a short season, he says there isn't a lot of time to try new things.

Coach Claude Noel says they're trying to encourage a little more defensive awareness.

That includes working to ensure they don't give up scoring opportunities from key areas.

Like Enstrom though, he says with such a short camp they need to get players comfortable again as quickly as possible.
