Jets 4, Canucks 1: Better effort, but Vancouver heads home after turbulence on the road

  Jets 4, Canucks 1: Better effort, but Vancouver heads home after turbulence on the road WINNIPEG — In their two-game swing through Chicago and Winnipeg, the Vancouver Canucks accomplished something they haven’t done since the first two games of the NHL season. They lost back-to-back games in regulation time. Here’s what we learned from Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Jets at Bell MTS Place which dropped the Canucks’ record to 9-5-3: Better effort comes up short After an off night in Chicago, the Canucks responded with an improved effort but had the game taken away in the second period and couldn’t beat Jets’ hot goalie Connor Hellebuyck in the third.

Kyle Connor tallied his first hat trick, and Connor Hellebuyck posted a 33-save shutout of the Predators to help the Jets secure a playoff spot.

He was also glad Ehlers was fine. As for Connor stealing the puck from him, that wasn't a good memory.

“We were trying to set up a play on the faceoff. Not really sure what I was doing down there,” Myers said with a wry chuckle, noting Connor's speed to get to him.

Canucks defenceman Chris Tanev, who left the Chicago game late in the first period with an upper-body injury, took a hard shot to his right leg from Laine earlier in the period. He limped to the dressing room, but returned after getting the medical green light.

“It's hockey, everyone does it,” he said of going back in the game. “It just hit me in a good spot and leg went numb.”

Jets forward Andrew Copp helped Lowry get his first goal, and first point, of the season. Facing an empty net, Copp passed back to Lowry instead of scoring himself with 1:45 left in the third.

Winnipeg made changes to its top two lines because of veteran centre Bryan Little's injury in Tuesday's loss to New Jersey. The puck from a one-timer shot by teammate Ehlers hit Little near his left ear, perforating his eardrum.

Jets right-winger Blake Wheeler was moved to play centre on the second line between Ehlers and Roslovic. Scheifele was in the middle of Connor and Patrik Laine.

Winnipeg plays the third game of its four-game homestand Sunday afternoon against the Dallas Stars. Vancouver goes home for four straight games starting Sunday against New Jersey.
