Game 20: Bruins 4 Jets 1 post-game report

Post-game from the Jets dressing room as well as from coach Maurice.

It is hard to win when you don’t get shots on the opposition goalie and that is essentially what happened throughout the game for Winnipeg.  Despite it being a scoreless 1st period the Bruins controlled play for the most part and Michael Hutchinson had to keep the Jets in the game facing 14 Boston shots (Jets had 4).

The Bruins blew things open in the 2nd period scoring three goals and holding the Jets without a shot for the final 13:24 of the middle frame.  The three shots they did manage in the 2nd period were all on the power play.

The Jets inability to generate shots on goal continued into the 3rd where they didn’t get their first shot until the seven minute mark on a Winnipeg power play.  Unfortunately for the Jets they were already down 4-0 at that point.  They managed to throw a few more shots on Tuuka Rask and finally with 2:35 left in the 3rd a Laine shot was finished off when Lowry put home the rebound.  It was too little too late as Winnipeg fell to the Bruins 4-1.

The Jets now head to Carolina to play the Hurricanes tomorrow at 4 pm CT.  Lots of lineup questions with the potential return of Drew Stafford.

Player post-game audio:

Blake Wheeler:  On what didn’t work in the offensive zone tonight?  Hard to account for that type of effort?  Not a lot of time to figure things out?  Hutchinson deserved a better fate.

Adam Lowry:  Assessing the game.  How do they put it behind them?  What wasn’t there for the club?  On Hutchinson deserving a better fate.

Michael Hutchinson:  Assessing the game.  What didn’t work for the rest of the team?  What did he see in the 2nd period?  Felt like a bit of a barrage tonight?  His excitement to play in this building?

Coach post-game audio:

Paul Maurice:  Why his club wasn’t able to generate anything after 40 minutes.  What concerned him most about tonight’s game?  Is it best for his team to get back on the ice on Sunday?
