Wild have no answers for Roseau's Dustin Byfuglien and the Jets

Wild have no answers for Roseau's Dustin Byfuglien and the Jets

It's safe to say being outshot 43-17 in Game 2 likely wasn't what the 63-year-old coach had in mind. "We have to play our best game tomorrow". Team merchandise is also very popular amongst fans across North America. "He's fit in seamlessly with our group".

After the game Elliott was asked how much it meant to him to have Hakstol stick with him after such a tough first game, especially while still recovering from an injury that kept him out of the lineup for 25 games. The loss of Ryan Suter for the rest of the season was one of the main reasons that Minnesota allowed 40 shots. Morrow is on a pairing with Dustin Byfuglien. Minnesota wanted to make a statement early and they did, up 5-0 in shots and dominating during a power play - yet they could not get a puck past Winnipeg goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, he of the Vincent Price goatee and eyebrows. Atlanta was swept from the 2007 post-season by the New York Rangers.

The Jets returned to Winnipeg in the fall of 2011 and have only made one playoff appearance since then.

Jets centre Bryan Little has been with the franchise since 2007-08.

This week, both teams will start going head-to-head, with the Jets eyeing an immediate surge with their youth movement and the Wild desperately longing to get over the hump. I think we needed to just come out and have that intensity that we have had in the past two-to-three weeks of the season just to make it here.

"I'm hoping there will be lots of Jets fans there, regardless we will be very loud and vocal to support our team, and we are wearing white!", emailed Wazny, a season ticket holder for last two seasons and fan since the days of the original Jets who got tickets for Game 3 as soon as the playoff schedule was released. Zach Parise leads Minnesota with one goal, Mikko Koivu has one assist and Joel Eriksson Ek has four shots on goal. Dubnyk stopped 37 shots for the Wild, who were third in the division with 101 points (45-26-11). "It's this kind of sneaky, underlying underdog confidence that I think will carry us", defenseman Matt Dumba said. "We're really only focused on home games at this point", the spokesman said.




The Western Conference might be home to the first-round matchup with the hottest team of the 2017-18 Stanley Cup playoffs, and that matchup has nothing to do with the Presidents' Trophy-winning Nashville Predators. "We've got to play good once, and we've got to have that on Monday". "I felt a little bit more comfortable as the game went on".

WINNIPEG-For a young team, the Winnipeg Jets showed a resiliency and ability to adjust this regular season that was worthy of a veteran squad.

In this series game one would always be important and if the Jets lost last nights game, they would no doubt have been feeling huge pressure heading into game two.

That was only the beginning, though, and in the third period, the Jets started to pull away with a trio of goals from center Paul Stastny, winger Andrew Copp, and winger Patrik Laine.
