WINNIPEG -- 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 pilots helmet, complete with darkened visor, that the team has come up with as a new locker-room tradition. "This time of year youve got to find a way," Setoguchi said of his timely goals, which ended his seven-game goal-scoring drought. "Theyre ahead of us in the standings and the other night Nashville was and we let one slip away there. And if were going to try and crawl back up in this thing were 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 didnt end and has now stretched to 15 games. The win means the Jets have won seven of the nine games theyve played since Paul Maurice took over as head coach. "Im really happy for him, its been a tough stretch of games," Maurice said of Setoguchis performance. Not much changed in the standings however. With Nashvilles 3-2 overtime win over New Jersey Friday, the Jets remain a point behind in the Central Division cellar. And, despite the loss, the Canucks sit in eighth place and cling to the final wild card playoff spot in the Western Conference with 63 points. Phoenix is next with 60, but things are tightening up with Nashville at 58, and Winnipeg and Dallas both with 57 points. It was also the last game Vancouver has to play without head coach John Tortorella behind the bench, as his suspension for his actions before and after a brawl with the Calgary Flames ends this weekend. Eddie Lack, in goal instead of Robert Luongo, made a lot of great saves to keep Vancouver in the game as the Jets outshot the Canucks 34-26. "Their goalie made some huge saves for them to keep them in it," said Ladd. Lack said it was tough to start the game by giving up the first goal. Though they battled back and twice tied it up, they could pull ahead. "Its not the first time that happened for us and it kind of feels like were talking about the same thing," he said. Assistant coach Mike Sullivan took his time coming out to talk to reporters as Tortorellas stand-in and said late penalties were momentum killers. "It was frustrating because we fought our way back into the game," said Sullivan. "I thought we had all the momentum in the third period (but) we shot ourselves in the foot." The Jets outshot the Canucks 15-7 in the first period and Vancouver had managed just one shot when Bogosian scored from the point at 5:02, slamming one past backup Eddie Lacks glove. The Canucks rested Roberto Luongo Friday night. The Jets kept up the pressure and Vancouver called a time out just over a minute later as Setoguchi backhanded one in from the side of the net to make it 2-0. The Canucks got their first on a power play when Edler slipped a rebound behind Ondrej Pavelec from the side of the net at 10:27. Winnipeg continued to control the play, however, and Dustin Byfuglien thought he had another with about a minute and a half left in the period. But Lack caught a piece of it as the big winger swept past. The Jets started well in the second but turned over the puck in front of their own net and Kesler was right there to backhand his 19th of the season past an unprepared Pavelec at 4:48. The tie didnt last long. Frolik put the Jets back in the lead when he snapped in Ladds behind-the-net pass at 6:41 and that was it for the second. Winnipeg kept its edge on shots at 13-10. But the Canucks tied it up again in the third when Jason Garrison blasted one from the point and Pavelec went down as the puck went high. Setoguchis second of the game at 17:04 put the Jets back in the lead and the Canucks took a high-sticking penalty at the same time, their second of the period, to keep them from making another comeback. Notes: It was Vancouvers first visit to the new Jets at the MTS Centre. The last time they played the Jets at home was in 1996, the final season for the original Jets before they relocated to Phoenix and became the Coyotes. With Vancouvers visit, every team in the NHL has now played in Winnipeg. Brandon Zylstra Jersey . -- Michael Frazier II scored 21 points, Dorian Finney-Smith added 11 and No. Harrison Smith Jersey .

First came a sack by LSU safety Jalen Mills for a loss of 12 yards to force a fourth-and-27, and then another sack and strip by linebacker Kendell Beckwith all but sealed the game. The 17th-ranked Gators came to Death Valley hoping to establish themselves as the team to beat in the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference. Instead, they left with a 17-6 loss to No. 10 LSU on Saturday which exposed some problems with Floridas pass protection. LSU "had too many free runners at the quarterback," Florida coach Will Muschamp said after watching Murphy take four sacks and release numerous inaccurate passes under duress. "There was too much pressure. Weve got to protect (Murphy) better." Murphy blamed himself. "It is definitely frustrating when you have a guy (open) down field and you cant (get the ball) to him," Murphy said. "I really have to work on getting rid of the ball quicker." Murphy got off to an encouraging start against LSU, connecting on a couple of high-percentage throws, showing his elusiveness when he was nearly sacked and converting four first downs. That set up Francisco Velezs 44-yard field goal to give the Gators a 3-0 lead. The next two drives didnt go nearly as well, amounting to minus-4 yards as LSU forced a pair of three-and-outs, and Micah Eugene pulled down Murphy for his first sack. Meanwhile, LSU (6-1, 3-1) strung together touchdown drives of 70 and 62 yards, gashing the Gators highly rated defence for several passing plays covering more than 20 yards. The scores came on 1-yard TD runs by fullback J.C. Copeland and reserve freshman quarterback Anthony Jennings. Florida (4-2, 3-1) entered the game giving up averages of only 217 yards and 12.2 points per game. LSU gained 200 yards and scored 14 points in the first half. "You can call whatever defence you want to call, kids have got to get off blocks and make a play," Muschamp said of his defence.dddddddddddd "Our guys have got to accept that." Florida made it a one possession game on Velezs second field goal, a 27-yarder that cut it to 14-6 with 12:11 to go. The Tigers responded by going to Jeremy Hill, who carried four times for 45 yards -- including a gain of 26 yards to the Florida 19 -- to set up Colby Delahoussayes 31-yard field goal with 7:58 left. Needing two scores, Florida started to gamble. On fourth-and-5 from the Gators 30, punter Kyle Christy converted a fake, hitting Demarcus Robinson over the middle for a 14-yard gain. Murphy then converted a fourth-and-9 with a 15-yard pass to Ahmad Fulwood at the LSU 20. Thats when the Tigers put the game out of reach with consecutive sacks. "We can win all different types of games," Hill said. "We can win shootouts or we can win tough, physical ground it out kind of games." Hill rushed for 121 yards on 19 carries, carrying the load on a day when the Tigers passing offence was not its usual prolific self. LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger finished with 152 yards on 9-of-17 passing, hitting Jarvis Landry four times for 58 yards and Odell Beckham Jr. twice for 47 yards. "Its frustrating, but you have to give them credit, too," Florida defensive lineman Damien Jacobs said. "It is LSU, and Jeremy Hill is the running back. Hes physical, and he has all the intangibles it takes." The Gators also apparently caught LSUs defence at the wrong time. The Tigers had given up 44 points in a loss at Georgia and 23 points in the first half a week ago at Mississippi State, but have now gone six quarters without giving up a touchdown. "The more time we are getting together with this defence, the better we are becoming," said defensive end Jermauria Rasco, who assisted on one of LSUs eight tackles behind the line of scrimmage. "It is just taking some time and I think the evidence is there now." Florida wound up being the first LSU opponent this season to be kept out of the end zone.
