Jets right-winger Devin Setoguchi made a couple of beautiful moves Sunday night in a 3-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche, but still wasn't able to record his first goal since the second game of the season.

And while Setoguchi's dangles looked good, he pointed out that he didn't finish and that's all that matters.

"I think I only had a couple of shots, couple of chances in the third," Setoguchi said. "Other than that I was pretty irrelevant throughout the game. We need better from myself. If I want the minutes, I've got to play better."

FULL MONTY

Backup goaltender Al Montoya made 33 saves against the high-flying Avalanche, many of the spectacular variety.

"Montoya was great," Jets centre Bryan Little said. "He kept the score tight for us and made some huge saves. We didn't really help him too much and give him a good effort in the third."

For his part, Montoya said he was frustrated that the team was not able to get two points after playing a decent game.

"This is the hottest team in the league right now and it was a good test for us," he said of the Avs. "We could have gained a little confidence here."
