Jets focus on battle drills to get back up to speed

"We just didn't move our feet last night."

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets wasted no time in Wednesday's practice getting to the root of Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

There were several one-on-one drills, followed by two-on-ones, and finally two-on-twos out of the corners of the ice during the 35-minute session.

"As much as it was battles, it was about our feet defensively and offensively. We just didn't move our feet last night," said Jets head coach Paul Maurice. "We didn't move them to defend and we certainly didn't move them when we had the puck. The easiest way to work on that is almost in a one-on-one. You don't get to hide on those things."

The Jets (12-9-4) were well aware of what the Hurricanes would bring to Canada Life Centre, but weren't able to play the way they liked to counteract it.

Winnipeg Jets NFT 101

The Winnipeg Jets are diving into the digital world with the release of their inaugural NFTs.

by Winnipeg Jets PR @WpgJetsPR / Press Release

The Winnipeg Jets are diving into the digital world with the release of their inaugural NFTs. Whether you're digitally well-versed or have yet to learn what an NFT is, this page will give you everything you need to know about NFTs, and more specifically, the Go Jets Go NFTs.

Here's some basic info on NFTs to get you started:

What is an NFT?

NFT is short for non-fungible token. Each NFT is a unique digital piece of content linked to the blockchain - a distributed database that stores information electronically in digital format. The data stored on the blockchain for each NFT is both proof of ownership and means that each NFT is not interchangeable. The data associated with each NFT is what separates it from a screenshot someone may have of the same NFT and is what makes the NFT valuable. The concept compares to having a Dale Hawerchuk rookie card versus a photo of one or having a poster of the Mona Lisa versus the original painting - the original or true versions of artwork or collectibles hold value while copies do not.

Scheif's Healthcare Heroes - Arlana Sorenson

"My favourite part of the job is seeing the residents happy, smiling, and well looked after."

by Jason Friesen / WinnipegJets.com

Though wins are the ultimate goal of every hockey team, at the end of the day, players want to leave the rink knowing they gave everything they had and that they contributed in meaningful ways to a team effort. Healthcare workers strive for the same sense of accomplishment, related to the knowledge that they have made a difference in the lives of both the people they work with and those they care for.

Jets fall to Hurricanes in home stand finale

"We didn't skate nearly well enough to expect to win."

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Paul Maurice's assessment of the home stand finale - a 4-2 Winnipeg Jets loss to the Carolina Hurricanes - was concise.

"For the style of game that was going to be played today, we didn't skate nearly well enough to expect to win," said the Jets head coach. "There wasn't an easy way to get the puck to the net. We struggled with that."

Despite that though, the Jets (12-9-4) still found themselves in a tie hockey game in the final minutes of the second period after eliminating a 2-0 deficit thanks to goals from Nikolaj Ehlers and a highlight reel deflection by Pierre-Luc Dubois.

But two power play goals from the visitors, one late in the second and the other early in the third, sealed Winnipeg's fate. Especially when the home side couldn't cash in on a five-minute power play opportunity with 12:21 to go in regulation.

Thomas' Five Storylines - WPG vs. CAR

No Neal, Svech vs Svech and more!

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

NO PIONK

Neal Pionk was issued a two-game suspension for his hit on Toronto's Rasmus Sandin during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs. On top of that Paul Maurice mentioned that Pionk is in concussion protocol which means he won't be going with the team to Seattle and Vancouver this week. Pionk took a vicious hit from Leaf forward Jason Spezza. Winnipeg will try to get through tonight and the Seattle game on Thursday without having to call a player up from the Manitoba Moose. The Moose are in Laval right now and will be playing on Wednesday night before coming back to Winnipeg.

Morning Skate Report: Jets vs Hurricanes

7:00 pm CT - TV: TSN 3; Radio: 680 CJOB/Power 97

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - It's a bit of a family reunion tonight as the Winnipeg Jets (12-8-4) take on the Carolina Hurricanes (16-6-1) to close out a four-game home stand.

Evgeny Svechnikov, who has been hosting his parents for the past week during a visit from Russia, will face-off with his younger brother Andrei Svechnikov as the Jets look to win their third consecutive game.

It's not the first time the two have played against each other in the National Hockey League, but it's still a chance to reflect on how far they've come. The two brothers played against each other a handful of times last year, but tonight will be special.

"It will be the first game for them to watch us play in the NHL. I'm happy for my mom and dad," Svechnikov said. "What they've done for us since day one, there is a lot to it. Sacrifice, tears and cries. We switched cities, sleeping on the floors, and everything else. I'm very proud of my parents and my brother as well. I'm very excited for them to watch tonight."
