Winnipeg Jets back in Central Division cellar but not losing confidence

WINNIPEG - Most Winnipeg Jets took Wednesday off after their 4-3 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Centre Olli Jokinen says they'll return to the ice for a regular practice Thursday as they prepare for the Vancouver Canucks.

He says Tuesday night's loss hasn't eroded any of the new-found confidence the Jets (25-25-5) have shown despite being back in the Central Division basement.

He says they know they can't win every game.

The Jets have now won six of the eight games they've played since Paul Maurice took over as head coach.

And Maurice doesn't view it as a step back on the kind of defensive zone game he's trying to coach, which he adds remains a work in progress.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
