Jets Fall To Lowly Jackets
The Winnipeg Jets' struggles continue as they fell to the lowliest team in the NHL as Ryan Johansen, a healthy scratch for their last game, scored twice as the Jets lost 2-1.
Mark Stuart responded with the only tally for the Jets shorthanded for his second with under five minutes left.
Despite the 36 shots on goal by the Jets, none could make it past Steve Mason.
Evander Kane led the team in shots with five, while Alexander Burmistrov had four.
Dustin Byfuglien led the team in ice time with 26:19, Zach Bogosian had 25:41 of ice time, Bryan Little had 20:45, Andrew Ladd had 20:36, and Nik Antropov had 20:16.
The Jets power play went 0-for-5 on the night while losing the faceoff battle and the hitting game.
Ondrej Pavelec stopped 25 of 27 shots on the night.
Jets play next on Monday against the Tampa Bay Lightning at home.
