WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Devin Setoguchi scored two goals, including the winner on a delayed penalty with 2:56 remaining, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the slumping Vancouver Canucks 4-3 on Friday night.
Zach Bogosian and Michael Frolik also scored for the Jets. Captain Andrew Ladd picked up two assists.
It was the last game Vancouver has to play without coach John Tortorella behind the bench, as his suspension ends before the Canucks play in Detroit on Monday.
Tortorella was suspended for his conduct after a brawl between Vancouver and Calgary players two weeks ago.
