Jets Lose to the Hawks (Again)

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

Jonathan Daniel

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.


  • 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.
