Thousands cheer Jets on to second playoff victory

"Very unique. ... Sometimes he might give up a chance here and there but he creates more chances than he gives up so I think in that sense as a forward, playing with him is nice". A big part in the playoffs is to get better every game and adjust.

"You don't really have that much time to think", Elliott said when asked what his mindset was on that play. Copp's goal came on Winnipeg's 35th shot of the game.

Come on people this is hockey and there are two teams playing the game. Home-ice advantage in the playoffs, you have it for a reason. The best way Minnesota will have a chance to win this season is if goaltender Devan Dubnyk stands on his head and allows two goals max, because the visitors can't expect to win a shootout against a strong defensive team in the Jets.

The Wild's Zach Parise scored on a power play with 44.8 seconds remaining for Minnesota's goal, coming on the team's third shot of the period.

Dubnyk didn't have to stop a Winnipeg shot until seven minutes had passed. This will last until the Jets decide to punch the Wild in the face again and Boudreau's group disappears quietly into the offseason waiting for the excuse-makers to do their thing.

The Winnipeg Jets had some major momentum enter the playoffs and they kept it going with a 3-2 win in game one, which was their first playoff win in franchise history. Connor Hellebuyck made 18 saves for the Jets, who finished second overall in the National Hockey League and Central Division with 114 points (52-20-10).

It was a tough loss for the Wild to take, but it is a long series and they did play well in game one against a team that was on fire down the stretch. Its start was fine, as the team put nine shots on net in the first.


Byfuglien set up the second goal with just over 12 minutes left in the third, giving Stastny a sharp pass from behind the net which the veteran centre one-timed. I got another chance and I tried to wrap it around, and he got me there. Instead, the Jets took over - scoring three times, the same amount of shots the Wild had the whole period. Evgeni Malkin led the Penguins with 42 goals and 98 points and former Toronto Maple Leafs right winger Phil Kessel was second on the Penguins with 92 points.

Midway through the game, former Calder Trophy victor, defenceman Tyler Myers walked around Minny's Jason Zucker, before shifting his way directly to the Wild cage, and burying a quick snapshot past the near-unbeatable Devan Dubnyk.

To his last point the Flyers were actually credited with two fewer blocked shots on Friday, but that's really not important - if he thinks it gave him more confidence, so be it.

In each game against the Wild, he's delivered monster hits that took Minnesota players off their skates. But that ended up being more than half of its total output for the entire game.

Joe Morrow leads Winnipeg with one goal, Dustin Byfuglien has one assist and Patrik Laine has four shots on goal. There is no such thing as a ideal game, but in todays world we have to be so black and white as to why something happened. During the regular season, in his career, he has gone 53-26 with a 2.50 GAA in his home games and 31-18 with a 2.23 GAA against the Central Division, while against the Wild he has gone 5-2 with a 2.52 GAA.

Despite being unable to beat Dubnyk early on, the Jets continued to play with a playoff confidence not seen before by Winnipeg fans. "I try to shoot as many pucks as I can and if they're cheating on me then Mark is going to be open and they have to pay for it".

The Jets got an injection of energy with rookie Jack Roslovic making his playoff debut in place of Mathieu Perreault, who suffered an upper-body injury in Game 1.
