(WINNIPEG) – Laurent Brossoit was glad the Winnipeg Jets didn't east up against the reeling Detroit Red Wings. Blake Wheeler, Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine scored in a two-minute span in the second period and the Jets dealt the Red Wings their 12th straight loss, 5-1 on Tuesday night. Brossoit made 15 saves in his eighth start in net this season. Wheeler began the barrage at 16:43 of the second when he beat Eric Comrie, who was making his first start in goal since Detroit acquired him in a trade with Arizona on Nov. 30. Christoffer Ehn scored his first goal of the season for the Red Wings (7-22-3), who are 0-10-2 during their skid. Detroit has the worst record in the NHL at 7-22-3. The Jets have won four straight at home and are 9-2-1 in their last 12.
