The Winnipeg Jets continue to try and find a winning way, but Thursday’s result won’t help, at least not immediately.

The Jets fell 5-2 to the Florida Panthers in a battle of former Southeast Division foes. And so the Jets remain sixth in the now realigned Central Division, after failing to take advantage of a chance to move ahead of the Dallas Stars and move to within six points of the Colorado Avalanche.

There wasn’t much for Winnipeg’s head coach Claude Noel to like about his team’s performance, which puts them an uninspiring 4-4-2 in the last 10 games.

“Well, the game wasn’t very good. To me, it really wasn’t the score - I mean, obviously the score is the area - but for me it’s the way we played,” said Noel, as per a video on the team’s website.

“We didn’t have very many good players. I thought we didn’t play very intelligent.”
