The Winnipeg Jets got stormed early at home Friday night by the Carolina Hurricanes.

Winnipeg was down 4-0 at the halfway mark of the first period. The Jets managed to score the next three goals and out shot the Hurricanes 19-6 in the third period. In the end, it was just too big a hole to dig themselves out from. 

The loss adds to home woes, as the team just wrapped up a six game home stand Friday that saw them go 1-5 at the MTS Centre. The team heads to Colorado now for a Saturday night game against their Central Division foes. 

After the game, head coach Paul Maurice was quick to say that the Jets start against the Hurricanes could be described as shocking and disappointing.

Jets captain Andrew Ladd said that the team did manage to get their legs moving after the first period, but early in the game it seemed like Carolina was getting a chance every shift.
