  • WINNIPEG -- For a guy who just played a key role in winning a hockey game Tuesday night, Martin St. Roberto Perez Jersey . Louis was still not a very happy fellow. It was understandable perhaps, after the veteran forward was passed over by his own general manager for a spot on the Canadian Olympic team. "Im happy we got the win," he said after his two third-period goals nailed down the 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets, their fourth loss in a row. "For Team Canada, you guys can imagine how I feel, obviously, Im extremely disappointed and Ill just leave it at that." St. Louis scored the winner in the third period then capped it with an empty-net goal. The Jets were outshot two-to-one for most of the game and finished with just 14 shots on goal to 33 for the Lightning, but still managed to go into the third tied 2-2. That was no consolation for Winnipeg coach Claude Noel. "Certainly for us this is probably the worst we played," he said. "It was an empty game. We got very little production in any facet of the game. I dont have the answers." The Jets scored two power-play goals and had managed to kill four of the chances they handed Tampa, until St. Louis tipped in Victor Hedmans shot from the point at 8:39 of the third on a fifth power play. Valtteri Filppula and Ondrej Palat also scored for the Lightning (26-13-4). Olli Jokinen and Dustin Byfuglien scored for the Jets (19-22-5). "It would be hard to pick anybody who was good in the game," said Noel. Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec agreed. "It was embarrassing," he said. "The way we play, we cant expect to be a success, thats for sure." He said they managed to stay in the game but "I dont think we showed up tonight," adding "we got what we deserved." Cooper was pleased at the way the whole team responded after a tough day when only Steven Stamkos from the Lightning got the nod for a spot on the Canadian Olympic team. "The guys still found a way to come into a hostile environment here -- this is a tough place to play on the road -- and I thought we just played an outstanding road game." Tampa got off to a quick start. Filppula deked past Byfuglien in front of the Winnipeg net to fire one past Pavelec at just 1:20 with the first shot of the game for the Lightning. But the Jets made good on a five-on-three later in the first. Mark Scheifele fed a pass across the Tampa crease and Jokinen popped it behind backup netminder Anders Lindback before he could recover. A slashing penalty to Filppula and a delay of game for Lindback (served by B.J. Crombeen) set up the scoring opportunity. The Jets managed only two shots in the first period to Tampas five and were outshot 12-7 in the second as well. But Byfuglien still put them ahead on another power play early in the period, snapping one past Lindback on the short side off a drop pass from Blake Wheeler. Things got chippier as the period progressed and tempers flared. Tampa had a couple of power-play chances but managed only one shot on both combined. Shortly after the last, however, Palat tied things up on a pass from Nikita Kucherov after a breakaway by Alex Killorn at 15:37. The Jets penalty kill finally buckled in the third on Hedmans shot from the point that St. Louis tipped in from Pavelecs glove side. Frustration boiled over again late in the third and gloves and sticks littered the ice after a clash around the Tampa net that saw four players sent to the box. The game basically ended with a fight between Evander Kane and Eric Brewer. Winnipeg had lost their last three going into Tuesdays game, while Tampa had a five-game road winning streak snapped last Sunday by the Edmonton Oilers. Notes: Pavelec picked up a rare netminders assist on Byfugliens goal. For whatever reason, Tampa has had trouble beating Winnipeg. The Jets won their first meeting of the season Dec. 7 in overtime and going into Tuesdays game had won the past four against Tampa. They still have a record of 7-3-2 against the Lightning since moving from Atlanta in 2011. Jim Thome Jersey .4 seconds left and dribbled up court, weaving through Pitts defence. Kenny Lofton Jersey . The 36-year-old Colts receiver is going back to the playoffs as a division champion.Sebastian Vettel gave under-pressure Ferrari an early Spanish GP boost by leading a one-two for the team in opening practice, as Max Verstappen made a promising debut for Red Bull. However, the devil was in the detail where the P1 order was concerned, as although Ferrari outpaced the Mercedes cars, they used the quicker soft tyres whereas the world champions did not.Underlining the unrelenting rate of development in F1 on a weekend when most teams are introducing upgrades, Vettels quickest time of 1:23.951 on a green track was already seven tenths of a second quicker than last years Barcelona pole lap. He outpaced team-mate Kimi Raikkonen by 0.138 seconds. Championship leader Nico Rosberg was half a second back in third place, but Mercedes ran exclusively on the slower medium compound, just as they did in winter testing at the Circuit de Catalunya. The softs which Ferrari used are worth 0.5-0.8s in lap time.Whats new on the cars?Lewis Hamilton, who trails team-mate Rosberg by 43 points heading into the first European round of the season, was fourth, a tenth adrift of the German as the team trialled a new pointy nose on the W07.Meanwhile, with the Red Bull driver swap story having dominated build-up to the race weekend, Verstappen and Daniil Kvyat got down to on-track business at their respective new teams. On his first ever outing in the RB12, Verstappen finished sixth quickest with his best time just a tenth slower than Red Bull regular and new team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.Im impressed by what hes done there in that session. I think hell be pretty pleased with that, said Sky Sports F1s Anthony Davidson.Verstappens session had got off to a slightly shaky start, as he ran off the track at Turn One at the end of his opening flying lap and damaged his first set of tyres. On his next run, the 18-year-old then reported he was having problems accelerating, which promoted a swift return to the pit lane so the Red Bull mechanics could investigate.Having been removed from the main Red Bull line-up, Kvyats first session back in a Toro Rosso car for 18 months saw him finish 12th, four places and half a second back on his new stable-mate Carlos Sainz. Both Red Bulls finished ahead of the Williamses, who were seventh and ninth with Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa respectively, with Fernando Alonso 10th for McLaren. Joe Carter Jersey.
