Devin Setoguchi nets two goals to end scoring drought

Devin Setoguchi was hiding his face Friday night but not in shame, as his two goals lifted the Winnipeg Jets to a much-needed 4-3 win over the slumping Vancouver Canucks.

He was wearing a player-of-the-game pilot’s helmet, complete with darkened visor, that the team has come up with as a new locker-room tradition.

“This time of year you’ve got to find a way,” Setoguchi said of his timely goals, which ended his seven-game goal-scoring drought.

“They’re ahead of us in the standings and the other night Nashville was and we let one slip away there. And if we’re going to try and crawl back up in this thing we’re going to have to make big wins late in the season here.”

Zach Bogosian and Michael Frolik also scored for the Jets (26-25-5). Captain Andrew Ladd picked up two assists.

Alexander Edler, Ryan Kesler and Jason Garrison scored for the Canucks (27-20-9). Daniel Sedin picked up an assist but his goal drought didn’t end and has now stretched to 15 games.

The win means the Jets have won seven of the nine games they’ve played since Paul Maurice took over as head coach.

“I’m really happy for him, it’s been a tough stretch of games,” Maurice said of Setoguchi’s performance.
