Didn't watch or listen to the game but based on the stats and the comments here it sounds like we were done in by our special teams.

Interesting looking at NHL website team stats...

Jets are bottom ten in the league with goals for/goals against ratio. They sit at 21st with 0.90. So really, we aren't as good 5-on-5 as some would suggest.

Our penalty killing is dead last at a dreadful 67.9% while our power play is 20th at 15.2% (despite our 0fer slump. I thought it would be lower to be honest). Guess there are a lot of dreadful power plays out there (ie. Rangers).
