It's a cruel, cruel game sometimes.

The Winnipeg Jets produced one of their better efforts of an 18-10-5 season so far, but left the Show Me State with nothing to show for it - not even a goal - despite dominating their opponent for much of the night.

In the end it was a classic goalie duel, and a pair of power-play goals proved to be the difference as Carter Hutton and the Central Division rival St. Louis Blues bested the Jets 2-0 in the front half of a back-to-back, home-and-home set Saturday at Scottrade Center.

The two will reconvene for the rematch on Sunday at Bell MTS Place.

GAME DAY: Jets begin home-and-home set with Blues

6:00pm CT - TV: City TV; Radio: TSN 1290

ST. LOUIS, Missouri - One of the consistent facts for the Winnipeg Jets this year is that they have done a good job bouncing back from a poor effort in their previous game.

After their 5-1 loss on home ice to the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday, the Jets get a chance to wipe that one away in the first game of a home-and-home with the St. Louis Blues and they will do it with Steve Mason starting in goal.

Mason will get his first start since returning from a concussion that he suffered after getting hit in the head with a shot in San Jose back on Nov. 25.

Jets focus on team speed ahead of home-and-home with Blues

Schedule has Jets on the road for four of final five games before Christmas break

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The prevailing theme from last night's 5-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks was that the Winnipeg Jets weren't quick enough.

Head coach Paul Maurice compared it to the 5-2 defeat the Jets suffered at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets back on Oct. 17 at Bell MTS Place, the last loss in regulation before the 10-0-1 streak on home ice began.

During today's 30-minute skate at Bell MTS Iceplex, the team focused on getting that speed back in their game.

"(In an) 82-game schedule, everyone is getting one of those in there," said Maurice. "It's all about what your next one looks like. We've handled it pretty well so far. The importance of the games means you can't spend a whole lot of time (on it). But we dealt with it today."

Jets fall to Blackhawks to begin four-game stretch against Central

Blackhawks hand Jets first regulation loss on home ice since Oct. 17

WINNIPEG - What began as a night with the potential for the Winnipeg Jets to set two franchise records, finished as a night to forget.

The Jets suffered their first regulation loss at home in their last 11 games, dropping a 5-1 decision to the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night.

It was also the first loss of any kind at Bell MTS Place in the team's last seven outings.

"We were slow from the start. I think they worked at trying to get faster, but it wasn't just the hands, it was the feet," said head coach Paul Maurice.

"We were too slow to open up lanes to make the play to move the puck, and too slow to react to the turnover that happens. We gave up a 3-on-2, a 2-on-1 one-time shot, not even through our first two shifts. We were slow tonight."

Like Father, Like Son

Right down to the grizzly, but impeccably tamed red mane, Adam Lowry is following in the footsteps of his father, "Jungle" Dave

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

Call him a chip off the old block.

Right down to the grizzly, but impeccably tamed red mane, Adam Lowry is following in the footsteps of his father, "Jungle" Dave.

On Nov. 22, 2017, after years of wondering if the day would ever come, the pair went head-to-head during an NHL game for the very first time.

On the Winnipeg end, it was Adam - the fourth-year Jet trying to help his team get a win in the second of a four-game road trip. On the opposite side stood Dave - a longtime NHLer with more than 1,000 games to his name - who is now an assistant coach with the always tough Los Angeles Kings.

Dave, who was the prototypical third- or fourth-line power forward, is proud of the player - and man - Adam has grown into.

"I was a player that had to work every day and train hard in the summertime, and you're hopeful that you can instill that work ethic into your kids and they can use it later on in life.

"I'm very proud of everything he's accomplished."

Meet the Teacher

Learn how Todd "Woody" Woodcroft has worked tirelessly to give Jets players an edge over the opposition

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

Twenty minutes before any Winnipeg Jets practice or morning skate, it's easy to find assistant coach Todd Woodcroft.

He's usually positioning a device he calls the "rebound board" somewhere in front of a net, and dumping a bucket of pucks right next to it.

Then, the usual group of six or seven players get out for some pre-practice work, burying shots that bank off Woodcroft's four-foot long by eight inch high rebound board.

The players aren't just trying to hit the net. They're shooting to specific spots.

Spots that Woodcroft and goaltending coach Wade Flaherty have determined as the best options to score on that night's opposing goaltender.

"When I came on, one of the things that Paul was talking about was creating offence, and finding different ways of creating offence," said the 45-year-old Woodcroft. "(Flaherty) might say 'this goalie has trouble high glove or anything around his ears.' So that morning when we do stuff before the morning skate, we'll work specifically on that, and the drills we do will be specific.

"We're trying to work on the route of getting pucks to the net from those areas so it becomes muscle memory for those guys."

GAME DAY: Jets look to extend home winning streak tonight vs. Blackhawks

WINNIPEG - The Central Division standings may have the Winnipeg Jets ahead of tonight's opponent, the Chicago Blackhawks, but Tyler Myers says any meeting with the Blackhawks is still a measuring stick type of game.

"Even with some of their tough goings this year, what they've done the last six years, they have a certain pedigree to them," said Myers. "It makes you more aware of some of the guys they have over there on their side. A big part of it, the way we've approached teams with some big players - especially up front - is just trying to limit their time and space with a good gap. Focusing on something as simple as that has helped us out a lot.

"In terms of who we're playing on any given night, we try to prepare the same way."
