After EMBARRASSING loss - Winnipeg Jets head coach Rick Bowness throws team under the bus

The San Jose Sharks hosted the Winnipeg Jets last night, resulting in a 3-0 shutout victory for the Sharks. Despite the Jets and Sharks having different objectives for the season and occupying opposite ends of the standings, the game didn't unfold as expected.

Currently occupying the second wild card position in the Western Conference, the Winnipeg Jets are only two points ahead of the Calgary Flames and three points ahead of the Nashville Predators, who have two games in hand. Given the playoffs are in close reach, it's crucial for the Jets to win these must-win games.

Following last night's defeat, Jets' head coach Rick Bowness expressed his discontent with the team's performance to the media.

Well, I'd say we created enough scoring chances. The offence gave us a chance to win the game, we just didn't score. Then, the inconsistencies with some of our players is hurting us,» Jets head coach Rick Bowness said after the game, «Some of these guys think they're giving us everything in their tank, they're dreaming. We have a lot of guys in there giving us everything they can. We just need a few more guys to jump on board. It's not over. We're still in eighth spot. We're going to find out what we're made of over the next little while.



He was then asked how to reach these players who are under-performing, which he responded:

How do you reach them? There comes a point when your personal pride has to take over. If someone has to go in there and point that out to them, then there is a big problem right there. As I said, we're going to find out what we're made of and we're going to find out what everyone in that room is made of over the next little while.
