Jets top Wild 3-2 in playoff opener

Andy Castillo | 14 April, 2018, 22:18

They will return to the Twin Cities with their tail between their legs, trailing 0-2 for the fourth consecutive playoff series.

And the performance was thoroughly more dominant by the Winnipeg Jets, who blasted the Minnesota Wild 4-1 Friday night at Bell MTS Place.

Blake Wheeler was certain the second game would be different.

Laine's wrist shot beat Devan Dubnyk glove-side to tie the game 2-2. "Our forwards have been extremely hard in not giving them any clean ice to make passes on breakouts and when they're skating and really in the right position and all over the puck, it makes it easier for our D to stay up and have a good gap as well". Winnipeg has a way of owning the puck, like the big kid at the outdoor rink who could steal your puck and keep it for as long as he wanted to.

"Obviously, Fleury won three Cups with Pittsburgh and they had a great run", said Gallant.

And the fans, inside and out of the arena, are absolutely loving it.

On Friday, the whiteout street party expanded to block off Donald Street from Portage Ave.to St. Mary Ave, and included a family-friendly, no-alcohol zone near the Millennium Library.

Laine scored at the 4:51 mark of the third period and the Jets went on to win 3-2 on Wednesday night. Laine provided another musical moment as he returned to the bench, holding his stick like a violin bow over his arm, playing sweet music as he skated to high-five his teammates ... Myers had a busy first two periods because he was in the penalty box twice, once in the first period and once in the second. In the series, the Jets have outshot the Wild 83-37 and the shot attempts are 152-87. That meant that after getting the first five shots of the game the Wild got outshot 44-12.

Earlier in the day, Wild defenceman Matt Dumba had talked about how the ear-bursting crowd could play havoc with on-ice communications.

With 10 seconds left in the game, fists started flying and a total of 65 penalty minutes were recorded.

Not for the Jets, though, who scored three more. "We're going to do our best to make this a series and compete". Without him, the Wild would not even have had a sniff in either game ...

Perreault scored 17 goals and 39 points in 70 games for Winnipeg this season. I will look for the Under to cash in this one. Looking like yet another home run at the draft table for the Jets. One of the linesmen tried to call an offside late in the first period but had a whistle malfunction.

Winnipeg was a very solid offensive team this year as they ranked 2nd in the league in scoring at 3.33 gpg, while also ranking 14th in shots taken (32.2 spg) and 5th in power play conversions, converting on 23.4% of their chances. At least the linesman can say he didn't blow it ...

Minnesota was battered and bruised throughout the game as Winnipeg outhit them 38-23, including numerous bone-rattling variety. Kroppy would have loved this Jets team.

Game two in Winnipeg as the Wild look to get a split on the road before the series shifts south of the border to the Xcel Energy Center on Sunday.

Former Minnesota Wild player Wes Walz was also there to weigh in on the series. Eriksson Ek was one of the Wild's top forwards in game one and has been an integral part of the teams strong play down the stretch.

"It was a bad turnover", said Boudreau. The madder he got the better he got. Fans are not getting exhausted of it.

It was as dominant of a game as any Winnipeg Jets fan could dream of. Adam Lowry won 69% of his draws and Paul Stastny won 71%.

His team embarrassed by the defending Stanley Cup champions in a lopsided playoff-opening loss, Philadelphia Flyers coach Dave Hakstol could have panicked. How does he know?

The goal was vintage Laine.
