WINNIPEG - The Jets find themselves back in the basement of the Central Division after Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Nashville Predators, but spirits were good in the dressing room on Wednesday morning.

"I don't think we played bad at all," rookie defenceman Jacob Trouba said. "It's something we build off. You're not going to win every game."

Most members of the Jets didn't hit the ice on Wednesday, doing an off-ice workout instead, while the players who don't get as much ice time took to the MTS Centre sheet for a quick practice under head coach Paul Maurice's guidance. The Jets will practise Thursday and then host the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night in their last home game before the Olympic break.

After a little more reflection of Tuesday's game, which left the team's record at 6-2 under the new head coach, Maurice felt the effort was good but the execution was not.
