from Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press,
It was less than a week ago when Evander Kane went public with a plea for more "FU" in the Winnipeg Jets' game -- the not-so-subtle suggestion he and his teammates needed to play with a little more edge, a little more anger and a little more desperation.
What they served up in Sunday night's 3-1 stinker to the Nashville Predators in front of a sold out-but-bored-stiff MTS Centre crowd could best be described as way more P-U than FU.
Yes, as the old saying goes, Claude Noel & Co. won't need to watch the game tape to smell this one.
"We have to face reality: the way we play, we can't be a success," said goaltender Ondrej Pavelec. "We have to find a way to start winning games. The way we play, all season long pretty much, it's not a way we can be successful. We have to change something and we have to change something now.
"We have said so many times that if we want to win we have to play the whole 60 minutes. It's been the same story all season long."
