Jets top Wild 3-2 in playoff opener

Jets top Wild 3-2 in playoff opener

That's because the only thing you can buy after the Jets took a 2-0 lead over the Wild in their first-round series is that Minnesota's roster features too many mentally weak players who decided the best way to handle adversity on Friday was to disappear. Copp's goal came on Winnipeg's 35th shot of the game.

There were so many in attendance at the party that organizers expanded the party zone to nearly three times the size.

In the franchise's only other playoff appearances since joining the National Hockey League in 1999 in Atlanta, the club was swept in 2007 by the New York Rangers and 2015 by Anaheim.

"We've needed him", Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau said of his team's goalie before Friday's match. As the puck went down the ice Koivu inexplicably stopped skating and the linesman was looking at him nearly to say "uh Mikko, you know you need to get to the hashmarks for me to blow the whistle".

"You guys are trying to make it sound like we're not tryin'", he said to the Minnesota press, grilling poor Boudreau like a summer rib eye.

Byfuglien put a hard body check on Minnesota forward Mikael Granlund near the Winnipeg bench as Granlund cleared the puck down the ice. "We played a good team game and we stuck through all 60". The difference of course is that the Wild did not make those turnovers count on the scoreboard.

Fortunately, you're too smart to believe this garbage and, much to the apologists chagrin, you aren't buying what they are selling no matter how convincing they attempt to sound. But then you have to go through that process of what's it like when you give up a lead.

One small step down, many more to go before the Jets get what they really want. "He's fit in seamlessly with our group".

But, really, Washington could have been more efficient with him if it wanted to. "Somebody who's kind of on the outskirts, or in and out a bit".

Zach Parise spoiled Connor Hellebuyck's shutout bid with just 45 seconds left.

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.

Laine tied it at 2 at 4:51 of the third period, putting a high wrist shot past Dubnyk on the glove side. Expect Game 2 to resemble the first two periods more closely than the last period. Minnesota's Nate Prosser was in the penalty box for holding on Scheifele's goal.

Tyler Myers opened the scoring near the midway mark of the game with a highlight-reel goal. They turned to their size, speed and skill and were soon outshooting the Wild, though they could not master goaltender Devan Dubnyk after the opening period.

It also marked the Jets second playoff victory when, to the delight of a raucous sellout crowd, they dumped the Wild 4-1.

Still, the team was trailing by only a goal in the third.

"We were able to give ourselves a chance a grab a lead there and even when it's tied we were still in good shape", said Parise. "I don't think (we took our foot off the gas)". "I missed the first one there with an empty net, and the puck just got away from me".

Mauricio Pochettino Provides Update On Injured Tottenham Star
After 14 games unbeaten there's no point talking about a player that did not play and was injured for a long time. Tottenham are next in action against the Premier League's champions-elect, Manchester City , on Saturday night.


The mentality the Penguins are approaching Game 2 with is flawless, as the Flyers are expected to come out strong in an attempt to prove they can hang with the defending Stanley Cup champion. Laine fired in his second goal of the series from the right circle at 17:58.

Hellebuyck made 16 saves. Defenceman Joe Morrow's was the game-winner - a point shot at 12:47 of the third, along the ice and through the legs of Dubnyk.

"We've been a great home team all year", center Eric Staal said.

"I've played in a couple of big games", said the 21-year-old winger.

The Wild are in the postseason for the sixth consecutive season.

In each game against the Wild, he's delivered monster hits that took Minnesota players off their skates.

Fans are primed for these playoffs. What should the new, and expected to continue, Winnipeg Jet playoff street party outside Bell MTS Place be called?
