The Winnipeg Jets are desperate to end their longest losing streak under head coach Paul Maurice and they hope to take advantage of the ice-cold Vancouver Canucks in Wednesdays home game at MTS Centre. Jason Spezza Jersey . Catch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and TSN Radio 1290 at 6:30pm ct/4:30pm pt. The Jets and Canucks both have 68 points on the season, leaving them six points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Neither club has done itself any favors in the postseason chase of late, as Winnipeg has lost four in a row while the Canucks have dropped five of six and 12 of their last 14 games. Vancouver has actually lost 21 of 27 games dating back to late December, and the clubs most recent setback did not inspire confidence the club is ready to break out of the lengthy slump. The Canucks led a visiting New York Islanders club 3-0 after two periods on Monday before giving up a whopping seven goals over the final 20 minutes of regulation to lose the tilt by a 7-4 count. Chris Higgins, Christopher Tanev, Ryan Kesler and Henrik Sedin all scored for the Canucks, while Eddie Lack gave up six goals on 27 shots in the collapse. "We should have had this game," said Sedin. "We played great hockey for 37 minutes but then we started making poor decisions. We should have been back in the race but now were down and looking up." Lack is expected to start in goal. His record is 1-1 against the Jets this season, with a 2.94 goals-against average and .900 save percentage. The Canucks will try to put their latest disappointment behind them when they kick off a four-game road trip tonight. Vancouver, however, has lost seven straight as the guest and is just 13-17-4 on the road this season. The clubs last victory away from Vancouver was on Jan. 21 in Edmonton. The Jets had lost four straight against the Canucks before posting a 4-3 home win on Jan. 31. That victory gave Winnipeg a 7-2-0 record since Maurice replaced Claude Noel as head coach, but the club is just 4-3-3 in the 10 games following that win. Winnipeg lost for the sixth time in eight outings Monday in Colorado, although the Jets were able to record a point in the overtime loss. Matt Duchene scored 2:33 into the extra session to lift the Avalanche to the 3-2 decision. Duchene lost control of the puck after twirling out of the corner. Winnipeg defenseman Tobias Enstrom tried to chip the puck away from the crease area, but it hit Duchene and the Avalanche forward scored on a backhand. "He got position at the net. The puck came right back to him and a guy like that, he will not miss those," Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien said of Duchene. Byfuglien scored both Winnipeg goals, with Bryan Little notching an assist on each score. Al Montoya took the loss despite stopping 31-of-34 shots. Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal this evening. He has a 1-3 record lifetime against Vancouver with a 3.04 goals-against average and .910 save percentage. Winnipeg, which hasnt made the playoffs since the franchise relocated from Atlanta prior to the 2011-12 season, hopes to boost its postseason chances during a home-heavy part of its schedule over the next week and a half. The Jets, who are 15-13-5 as the host this season, are beginning a three-game homestand on Wednesday and will play five of their next six games at MTS Centre. Jiri Hudler Jersey . Woods said Friday that his charity event, which attracts a world-class field even without being part of any tour, will move in December 2014 to Isleworth, the course where he honed his professional game from 1996 until moving away to south Florida two years ago. Valeri Nichushkin Jersey . A last-minute leveler ensured the two-time defending champion remained nine points ahead of Roma, which drew 0-0 at bitter rival Lazio in the capital derby. http://www.thedallasstarshockey.com/patrik-nemeth-hockey-jersey/ . Curtis Davies and Robert Koren secured the victory with goals inside 35 minutes of the fifth-round replay against the second-tier side.With 16 games left in the American Association season heading into Friday night, the Winnipeg Goldeyes fumbled a great chance to tighten the leagues wild card standings. Winnipeg gave up 16 hits in an 8-3 loss to the visiting Kansas City T-Bones in front of 6,023 fans at Shaw Park. With the loss, Winnipeg remains 2 games behind the Gary SouthShore RailCats in the American Association wild card race. The RailCats lost to the Sioux Falls Canaries last night. Despite giving up two runs in the top of the first inning, Ray Sadler stroked a double off the left field wall in the bottom of the first inning to score Yurendell de Caster and Ryan Scoma and tie the game 2-2. Goldeyes starter Matt Rusch got through the second and third innings unscathed, but found trouble in the top of the fourth. Kansas City strung together three singles to lead off the fourth inning and grabbed a 4-2 lead. In the top of the fifth, the T-Bones tallied four runs on five hits. After giving up a one-run double to T-Bones first baseman Jairo Perez and walking the bases loaded, Rusch was relieved by Brendan Lafferty, who then gave up a two-run single to Kansas City third baseman Brandon Jones. The T-Bones other run came on an infield single. Goldeyes centre fielder Tyler Graham singled in Fehlandt Lentini in the ninth inning to complete the scoring. Offensively, the Goldeyees banged out 10 hits in the game, led by two-hit efforts from Graham, de Caster and Sadler. Dino Ciccarelli Jersey. "Unfortunately, we got beat today by the elements," Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said on the TSN 1290 post-game show. "We hit some balls on the screws to right field and right-centre field that got knocked down by the wind. If it was a north wind or no wind, we might hit five or six home runs. "But, we were sloppy on defence and didnt do enough to win. They played better than we did." Winnipeg has won five consecutive series at home and will need to take the final two games of this three-game series in order to keep the streak intact. Rusch fell to 5-4 on the season after being on the hook for all eight of Kansas Citys runs. It is his first loss since June 21. Lafferty gave up three inherited runs in the fifth inning, but threw a scoreless sixth inning. Kaohi Downing then came in a shutout the T-Bones for the final three innings. He didnt even allow a hit. T-Bones starter Rick Zagone picked up his first win for Kansas City this season. He went six innings. Keith Picht tossed the final three innings for his first save of the season. The Goldeyes and T-Bones meet again Saturday night at Shaw Park. Winnipeg will send newly acquired Jason Jarvis to the hill against Kansas Citys Ethan Cole.
