Jets Lose to the Hawks (Again)

Jonathan Daniel

For the second time in a week the Winnipeg Jets lost to the Chicago Blackhawks, this time by a 4-1 score.

Chicago's big names, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp all scored for the Blackhawks, along with Hawks rookie Brandon Pirri.  Devin Setoguchi had the lone goal for the Jets.

Thoughts

  • Did Claude Noel scratch Evander Kane?  TSN seemed to be pushing that rumor hard.  Whether he sat as a precautionary measure or because Claude Noel thought the win on Monday was obviously the result of not having Kane is not known.  More rumors and innuendo will surely follow.
  • Al Montoya proved there are no easy answers to the goaltending problems.  While he looked good at times, 4 goals on 28 shots is a far cry from his pace so far.
  • Dustin Byfuglien was the old Dustin Byfuglien we all remember.  He was noticeably out of position on all 4 Hawks goals.
  • The power play continues to suck.  Gaining the zone seemed to be a huge problem.
  • Little, Ladd and Wheeler joined forces again and were a combined -9.  While I think Byfuglien deserves most of the blame for that, that line was badly outplayed.  The Jets were outshot 14 -3 with Bryan Little on the ice.
  • By my eye Eric Tangradi had a nice game.
  • I know a lot of people are excited about Anthony Peluso but I'm not one of them.  He was invisible tonight and his team worst Corsi is starting to stand out.
