The Detroit Red Wings suffered their 12th consecutive defeat on Tuesday, falling 5-1 to the Winnipeg Jets and extending their pointless streak to 10 games.

"We can't seem to stop the bleeding once it starts," forward Luke Glendening told after the loss. "We have a tough time slowing it down. I think they scored basically three shifts in a row. Part of that is, we get stuck in our own zone and we're too tired to get it out." 

The Red Wings were tied 1-1 with the Jets at the midway point of the second period before Winnipeg exploded for three goals in a two-minute span, including two goals within 11 seconds of each other with less than 90 seconds left in the frame.

Detroit's last win came on Nov. 12, a 4-3 overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks to extend their season-long win streak to three games. The team picked up a point in each of their next games, but have failed to do so since.

"Right now, we got to find a way to win a hockey game," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "We've got to get some confidence and moxie back into us. We're not a good enough team right now. The only people that can change that is us."

Despite the team posting another loss, forward Dylan Larkin said post-game he sees no quit in the Red Wings despite their league-worst 7-22-3 record.

"As hard as it is to say after a 5-1 loss, we're tapping in a lot, we battle, we battle for each other. We show up every day and practise hard. I've said it before; I do feel we've gotten stronger as a group although the results aren't showing it."

The Red Wings will face the Jets again on Thursday night in Detroit.
