WINNIPEG — In professional sports, sometimes the bounces just go the other way regardless of how a team plays. And Monday night the Winnipeg Jets fell victim to a couple of ill-timed and unfortunate bounces, losing 2-1 to the St. Louis Blues at MTS Centre.
“It’s disappointing just because we worked to get back in the game and tied it up, and then they get one that bounces off a couple things and goes in right at the end of the game. To lose that way is definitely frustrating,” said Winnipeg’s leading scorer Bryan Little, who tied the game on the power play three minutes into the third with his 13th of the year.
St. Louis scored the go-ahead marker with the man-advantage with 3:02 remaining in the game, as Little sprawled to block a point shot.
