Big picture

So much for a four-game winning streak. Dropping to 13-12-4, the Jets got quite a jolt on Saturday night, measuring up meekly against one of the NHL's elite teams. Defending was the biggest issue for Winnipeg coach Claude Noel, and that's a concern since it was some of the foundation upon which the team's rise from well below .500 was based.

Little picture

Detroit had this game 5-1 by the halfway mark, making much of the rest of the night garbage time. The reality is that Winnipeg played at home on Friday night and got into their Detroit hotel beds about 4 a.m. ET. Wings coach Mike Babcock cited that as an opportunity for his team before the game. Noel didn't like it after the game and refused the excuse, but it was reality.

Game-breaker

Jets' Bryan Little scored in the game's first minute, and trailing 2-1 out of the first wasn't terrible for the visitors. But Jiri Hudler and Chris Conner tallied goals just 40 seconds apart and Valtteri Filppula scored another, unchallenged down the slot straight off a change, at 9:31 of the second and the rest of the night simply became a countdown to the finish.
