    Winnipeg Jets limited to 12 shots in falling to Boston Bruins 4-1

    BOSTON — There hadn’t been any games when the Winnipeg Jets had a full-on no-show this season – at least not until Saturday.
    Looking lethargic for almost all of the contest, the Jets were unable to offer much resistance and barely managed to create any sustained pressure in the offensive zone as they fell 4-1 in a lopsided loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday night at TD Garden.
    “This is pretty simple, we weren’t ready to play,” said Jets head coach Paul Maurice, who pointed the finger squarely at himself when it came to assessing blame. “I’ve got two jobs. One is to prepare my hockey team and the other is run the bench. We weren’t prepared to play and that’s on me. I didn’t see it coming.
    “I couldn’t make enough adjustments to make a change, couldn’t hide people enough to keep them off the minus sheet. I’m not looking at that room, I’m looking at what I did to get this hockey club ready, because it wasn’t good enough for this league. I’m not reading them the riot act. I’ve got to get my act together because we weren’t ready to play.”
    With the loss, the Jets fell to 9-9-2 on the season, finishing the first quarter with 20 points.


    The Jets won’t have much time to lick their wounds and compose themselves, as they’ll face the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday as they continue a five-game road trip.
    While it’s noble of Maurice to fall on his sword, his players let him down and they understand they need to be better when they take the ice again in less than 24 hours.
    “It’s one out of 20 and we’ve got to do a better job of preparing (Sunday). That’s about it,” said Jets captain Blake Wheeler. “Our effort has been pretty good all year. We view this as an outlier in 20 games. That’s our challenge, we have to figure out what went wrong and try not to duplicate it.”
    The Bruins did everything better than the Jets as they exploded for three goals during the second period.
    When Jets star rookie Patrik Laine couldn’t chip the puck out along the right-wing boards, Bruins defenceman Joe Morrow was able to move in and find Matt Beleskey all alone for a one-timer in the slot at 2:01.
    Brad Marchand extended the lead to 2-0 at 11:37, taking the puck off the wall from Zdeno Chara before freezing goalie Michael Hutchinson with a fake shot before burying his backhand.
    The play started when defenceman Dustin Byfuglien was able to get the puck deep and the Bruins were quick in transition, making the Jets pay for the miscue.
    Before the period was over, the Jets found themselves two men down for the second time of the contest.
    This time, they cashed in on a one-timer from Patrice Bergeron with three seconds left in the minor to Mark Scheifele and the route was on.
    Tim Schaller had the other goal for the Bruins, just 1:41 into the third period.
    The Jets were a shell of themselves on Saturday, managing only 12 shots on goal (six of which came at even strength) in the game against Tuukka Rask, who has returned to form and is playing like one of the top goalies in the NHL.
    “We just weren’t ready to play from the puck drop,” said Jets centre Adam Lowry, who scored the lone goal for the visitors. “This is one in 20 where we didn’t come out the way we wanted to and we’re going to look to change that and have a better effort (Sunday).”
    The number of elements requiring attention is higher than in any previous Jets game to date.
    “There wasn’t a piece of our game that we were good at and if we have to sit here and get a silver lining, if you’re going to be bad, you might as well be bad in all parts of your game,” said Maurice. “So then you have the hope that you can write that one off.”
    There’s no doubt the Jets have dealt with a large helping of adversity through the first quarter of the NHL season, dealing with a rash of injuries that had the potential to bury them.
    But after using the better part of the first 13 games to work at establishing their new identity, the Jets appeared to be turning a corner, putting together a 4-0-1 stretch that’s been followed up by consecutive losses.
    They’re still young – especially with the number of veterans on injured reserve or sitting out with various ailments – they’re fast when they’ve got their legs moving and they’re usually tough to play against, even if they’re not racking up body checks at the same rate they did during their playoff season.
    On Saturday, the Jets were once again reminded that when they don’t play to their strengths, it can be an awfully long night.

    There’s no need for the Jets to panic, but it’s up to them to show Saturday was indeed an outlier and not a sign of things to come.
