WINNIPEG - For centre Olli Jokinen, one loss does not a confidence-shaking setback make despite the Winnipeg Jets falling back into the Central Division cellar following a 4-3 loss to Nashville Predators on Tuesday night. Cam Robinson Womens Jersey .Its not going to be our last game we lose, were not going to win every game, Jokinen said Wednesday, joining most of his teammates taking the day off to rest or work out in preparation to face the Vancouver Canucks on Friday.I think as a team were moving in the right direction and we just try to get our energy levels up and try to get a win Friday, he added.The Jets coaches and a handful of players were on the ice Wednesday but things will get more serious Thursday as the squad gears up for another important game against a Western Conference rival.Although theyve gone 4-5-1 in their last 10 games and lost 4-2 to Edmonton on Monday, the Canucks (27-18-9 before playing Chicago on Wednesday) are at least currently where the Jets want to be — holding down the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot.The Jets stand 12th, eight points behind the Canucks before Wednesdays action. They have plenty of distance to cover and not much time to do it as they head into the Olympic break. After Fridays game they play four more road contests before the Olympics, then return Feb. 27 at the MTS Centre.But with the hiring of new coach Paul Maurice, the Jets have already done some surprising things in a relatively short period of time. They earned road wins over both the league-leading Anaheim Ducks and defending Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks have won six-of-eight games with Maurice behind the bench.And neither Jokinen nor Maurice viewed Tuesdays loss as a step backwards from the kind of defensive zone game hes trying to teach.This defensive zone concept, its not like you write it on the board you get it and you go and theres your defence for the rest of your life, its a work in progress, Maurice said. There wasnt a letdown (Tuesday night).They werent running out of position, getting away from what they were trying to do to break a game open.Maurice said players are starting to see things and there are fewer questions coming back. Hes pleased with the compete level of one of the NHLs youngest teams.The biggest thing hes instilled in us is play for each other in every game, said centre Mark Scheifele.That approach seems to be working for the 20-year-old Scheifele, who had a goal and an assist against Nashville and is third in scoring among NHL rookies.Four Jets are heading to the Olympics: goalie Ondrej Pavelec and Michael Frolik for their native Czech Republic, Jokinen for Finland and Blake Wheeler, currently tied for Winnipegs scoring lead, for the U.S.The others will have a long layoff and while Maurice says hes had experience with Olympic breaks, with a young team like the Jets it might be different.The last time I went through an Olympic break that I remember, we ended up going to the final (2001-02 with Carolina) and came out fast and quick, Maurice said. We had a bunch of guys . . . that were older, fit men who used that break to rest but came back roaring.Maurice said veterans like former Carolina Hurricanes captain Rod BrindAmour and Martin Gelinas had the experience to know how to use the break.The concern is there will be a bunch of these guys that havent gone through an Olympic break, he said. Theres not much we can do in terms of structuring anything that is mandatory for our players.Maurice isnt worrying about the four Jets heading to Sochi, Russia.Theyre going to go and play at a really, really high level and theyre going to get better from it, he said. Id prefer to have more guys going than not.Meanwhile, Maurice said left-winger Evander Kanes hand was cleaned up by doctors after he was sidelined again by an infection that caused it to swell up.Everything finished the way we hoped, he said.Kane cut his hand in a fight with Tampa Bays Eric Brewer on Jan. 7 and initially missed four games. He returned Jan. 21 to register a goal and three assists in the next four games but isnt expected back until after the Olympic break. Cam Robinson Youth Jersey . They are back to a game above .500 on the year and back to .500 on the road. It was their 10th extra time game of the year, and only the second one that did not got to a shootout. Dede Westbrook Youth Jersey . The Calgary skip fell 10-8 to Swedens Oskar Eriksson in semifinal action Saturday and will face Switzerlands Peter de Cruz for the bronze medal (Saturday at 10pm et/7pm pt on TSN2). http://www.authorityjaguarsshop.com/dawuane-smoot-jaguars-jersey-c-58/ .C. Now hes squarely in the U.S. capital and helping the Washington Wizards playoff drive. John Wall scored 33 points, Gooden got 11 of his 21 in the final quarter and the Wizards overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit for a 101-94 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night. BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins are having a little fun so far this season watching 6-foot-9 defenceman Zdeno Chara turn into a power forward on the power play. Chara scored a power-play goal and helped set up Torey Krugs score with the man advantage by just standing in front of the net, leading the Bruins to a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. "If you dont have a play, throw it down front to Z (Chara) and (Milan Lucic) and theyll battle," Krug said. "We have a good thing going so far. Were having fun." Brad Marchand scored the tiebreaking goal 36 seconds into the second period and Tuukka Rask made 25 saves as the Bruins improved to 2-0. Jordan Caron added an even-strength score for Boston, which won its season opener against Tampa Bay on Thursday. "Its always been a basic part of my game to work hard," Chara said. "When Im in there, I might as well enjoy it." Henrik Zetterberg scored for the Red Wings, who are in the same division with the Bruins after the NHL realigned following last season. Detroits Jimmy Howard, playing his third straight game, made 33 saves. The Red Wings were playing consecutive road nights after beating Carolina 3-2 in overtime. "Its not easy when theres somebody thats 6-foot-8 standing in front of you," Howard said. "Its something youve got to figure out and try and find a way to try and find the puck. But its extremely difficult with him in front." On the opening shift of the second period, Marchand broke in and fired a wrist shot that caromed into the net off the far post, pushing Boston ahead 2-1. Carons goal gave the Bruins a 3-1 edge midway into the second period. Reilly Smith backhanded a pass from the slot to Caron, who one-timed a shot past Howard from the top of the right faceoff circle. Chara, playing in front of the net on the power play, collected a pass in front and looked like a polished goal scorer, shifting around Howard before tucking a shot inside the right post midway into the third. Krug collected an assist. Krug unloaaded a slap shot from the left point that gave Boston a 1-0 lead midway into the opening period. Cam Robinson Jaguars Jersey. It came just 15 seconds after Niklas Kronwall was sent off for holding. "In the second period thats something we talked about," Krug said of Charas play in front. "I think I talked to Krej (David Krejci) about it, What should I do with the puck? He said, Just give it to Z, hes going to win every battle." The Red Wings tied it late in the period when Zetterberg collected a rebound in front and slipped a shot by Rask inside the right post. The score came after a pass along the boards appeared to hit a glove on Detroits bench and dropped to the ice. The Bruins briefly stopped while the Red Wings broke out with the puck. Rask made a nice sliding stop on Justin Abdelkaders bid from in close a few minutes before Zetterbergs goal. Boston outshot the Red Wings 37-26. "They won in every statistic tonight," Howard said. "Every battle. Im not going to make that excuse that we were tired or anything like that because I kind of think its pathetic." Marchand took a hard hit and was face down on the ice for a while early in the second. He was levelled when Abdelkader left his feet and blind-sided the winger. Marchand was helped to the bench, but returned later in the period. NOTES: It was Krugs first regular season goal. He had four in his first five playoff games last spring. ... Bruins F Carl Soderberg was out with an injured ankle. ... Howard entered 3-0 with a 1.62 goals against in his career versus Boston. ...
