Coming off a two-goal third period implosion Wednesday night in Toronto, the Winnipeg Jets went into Ottawa looking to escape their brief Ontario road trip with three of a possible four points. The Senators decided to put together their most effective outing of the year Thursday, dominating the Jets, and capturing a 4-1 victory.

The Jets come into Ottawa after a rough shootout loss the previous night, and make it 0-1-1 on their Ontario mini road-trip, falling to the Senators 4-1.
-Robert Cleave in his Jets Game Day post earlier today noted Craig Anderson's struggles with making stops at even strength, but it appears the Winnipeg Jets were a victim of Anderson's regression. Despite heavily out-shooting and out-chancing the Ottawa Senators at even strength, the Jets were out-goaltended. Again, nothing on Ondrej Pavelec, who didn't have a chance on either of the goals, but another game goes by where the Jets face significantly better goaltending at the other end. Anderson made saves on 35 of 36 Winnipeg shots.

On the heels of a somewhat disappointing outcome in the Big Smoke last night, Winnipeg's two game roadie finishes this evening with a game versus one of the few teams likely to be looking up at them by season's end. Our nation's
sump hole for tax dollars capital hosts a very bad hockey team, one that seems a clear favourite to have the best shot in the Nail Yakupov derby next spring.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been very good early in the 2011-12 season, but he isn’t the only player from his draft class making an NHL splash. After the jump, a quick recap of the players selected in 2011 currently playing in the NHL.

The Jets, after a strong start, blew a 3-1 third period lead and lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the shootout...
-You can't fault Ondrej Pavelec on either of the three regulation goals, but on the tying marker by Phil Kessel, Bryan Little who was supposed to control Dion Phaneuf at the left point, fell way out of position because he dropped his stick in the opposite corner. Rather than play without his stick, the young Little went to retrieve it, leaving Mark Stuart to cover both Kessel and Phaneuf, who made a terrific pass, albeit through not much traffic to Kessel who took an excellent shot in a classic scoring position.
