Free Press ★★★
★ Justin Peters, goalie, Carolina: The Jets didn’t make it difficult for the Canes’ netminder, but he was positionally sound and didn’t spit up an abundance of rebounds for second and third chances.
★★ Alexander Semin, right-winger: Carolina: Just so slick and when he’s involved, he’s dangerous. Finished with a goal and an assist as the Canes top line, including Eric Staal at centre and Jiri Tlusty at left wing, was solid.
★★★ Zach Bogosian, defenceman, Winnipeg: There were spurts from any number of Jets, but Bogosian was probably the most consistent. He was a minus-1, but finished with a game-high nine shots.
1. Carolina, Semin 10 (Ruutu, E.Staal) 1:06
2. Carolina, J.Jokinen 6 (Pitkanen, Ruutu) 9:40

3. Winnipeg, O.Jokinen 7 (Kane, Miettinen) 1:26

4. Carolina, E.Staal 16 (Semin) 0:28
Penalties -- Byfuglien Wpg (high-sticking) 9:39, Pitkanen Car (holding stick) 11:14.
Referees -- Ghislain Hebert, Kelly Sutherland. Linesmen -- Steve Miller, Don Henderson.
Attendance -- 15,004 (15,004).
ONE IS THE LONELIEST NUMBER:
The Jets have just one goal over their last six periods, including last Thursday's 4-0 loss in Pittsburgh and Saturday's 3-1 setback against the Hurricanes.
The Jets surrendered the first goal of the game just 66 seconds in to Alexander Semin and are now 7-12-1 when giving up the first marker.
The Jets will practise in Winnipeg this morning before heading out for a three-game road trip that will begin Monday night in New York against the Rangers (6 p.m.; TSN Jets/TSN 1290), continue Tuesday in Long Island against the Islanders and wrap up next Thursday in Montreal.
