The Bruins didn't lose due to lack of effort or intensity. Which would have been slightly understandable, after playing in Pittsburgh the night before. Give credit to the Jets for playing with intensity, for executing, for taking advantage of a Bruins mistake, and for Ondrej Pavelec having the game of his life in net.

Winnipeg's first goal was a soft one for Rask to allow. Rask is a good goalie, by human standards. We get spoiled watching the inhuman Tim Thomas play. It's a goal Rask should have stopped. Let's just leave it at that.

The second goal the Bruins allowed was less forgivable. Corvo missed his assignment off a neutral zone faceoff, and the rush was on. You can't make those kinds of mistakes in the 3rd period of a 1-1 game.

Tyler Seguin was scratched because he missed a team breakfast and a meeting. Apparently, this wasn't the first time and he's been warned in the past. Message sent.

The Bruins return home to face the surprisingly 15-8-4 Panthers.
