Twice A Loser

Watching two games at one time is tough, but both of your favorites losing is even tougher. On Sunday night the Winnipeg Jets would have been down a least 4 goals on the New Jersey Devils in the first if it hadn’t been for the stalwart play of goalie, Andrej Pavelec. As it was, though, Mark Stuart put the Jets on the board with 4 minutes left in the period. The Jets came out only one goal down. There was no more scoring until Evander Kane put one away for Winnipeg again with 4 minutes left in the game. The Jets, suprisingly, came out of regulation with a 2-2 tie. There was no scoring in overtime, but Patrik Elias, who has become the shootout specialist. put the only puck across the goal line. A win for Winnipeg would have put them in line for a playoff berth.  But what has happend to The Chicago Blackhawks? They have taken part in two high-scoring games and came out the losers. They lost their first game of the series in overtime to the Colorado Avalanche and their first game in regulation, to the Edmonton Oilers, who were on a five game loosing streak. The Hawks were down 4-0 at the end of the first. They managed to pick up two in the second period and one in the third, but ended up with a 6-5 loss. There is no problem for them, as they are already in the playoffs: even if they lose a few more games. It’s just surprising to see their winning streak come to 2 game losses in a row.
