WINNIPEG - From a 2-0 lead to a 4-2 loss, the Winnipeg Jets head home 0 for 4 on their last road trip of the year after losing last night to the Carolina Hurricanes. During the four losses, the Jets were outscored 20-7. Once again, the Jets were victims of brutal officiating in the NHL; the goal that turned out to be the game winner was scored after Eric Comrie lost his mask, a play that should have automatically been blown dead. With the victory, the Hurricanes move 2 points ahead of the New York Rangers atop the Metropolitan Division.
Carolina outshot the Jets 46-22 with Comrie making 43 saves. Kyle Connor notched his 44th goal of the year, tying the Jets' record for most goals in a season. Pierre-Luc Dubois was the other scorer for the Jets.
Winnipeg returns home for their final four games at Canada Life Centre starting Sunday against the NHL's top team, the Colorado Avalanche. Puck drop is 6pm (TSN3, 680 CJOB/Power 97).
