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.

Alexander Edler, Ryan Kesler and Jason Garrison scored for the Canucks, who have lost three in a row and went 4-9-2 in January.

Winnipeg outshot Vancouver 34-26. The Canucks rested goaltender Roberto Luongo and started rookie Eddie Lack.

Ondrej Pavelec made 23 saves for the Jets.

Penalties late in the game hindered Vancouver.

“It was frustrating because we fought our way back into the game,” said assistant coach Mike Sullivan, who guided the Canucks in Tortorella’s absence. “I thought we had all the momentum in the third period (but) we shot ourselves in the foot.”
