Tarasenko scores twice, Blues beat Jets 5-2

--

Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice bluntly assessed his team's overall performance after a 5-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues at home on Friday.

"We were horseshit tonight. That's a technical term for our game," he said.

"Nobody is in a good mood and you're angry with it. You don't like to get beat like that. We got beat in St. Louis and played one hell of a game. We weren't any good tonight and didn't deserve to win the game."

Connor Hellebuyck made 22 saves for the Jets, who were playing their fifth game of a 10-game homestand (3-1-1). …
