WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets are sick of moral victories, but what are they going to do about it?

Another moral victory, plus the loser point for getting to extra time, was all the Jets had to hold onto after squandering another two-goal lead and falling 4-3 in a shootout to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night at MTS Centre.

“We’ve been taking positives out of losses for too long. It feels like three years, you come in after a game like this and you say ‘we did some good things,’” said Jets right-winger Blake Wheeler. “You have to stay positive and draw from the positives from the game because we did a lot of good things, but we didn’t do enough to win the game and that’s the bottom line.”

Jets head coach Claude Noel admitted after the game that he’s not much for moral wins.
