Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets, 4-13

The Wild are heading back to Minnesota - for Game 3 Sunday and Game 4 on Tuesday - trailing 2-0 in the best-of-seven series after losing the first two games to the Jets in Winnipeg.

Here is a flurry of notes ahead of Game 3 of the series, which will mercifully be played indoors Sunday night.

"Minnesota, it's nearly like a Canadian market there", said Stastny, who had a goal on Friday night.

It's always Hockey Day in The State of Hockey! "It's a loud building, so what we need to do is handle it". I told the guys here I think home playoff games are fun, but I think road playoff games are way better, especially when you're facing a crowd like that. "It's this kind of sneaky, underlying underdog confidence that I think will carry us", defenseman Matt Dumba said.

Acquired from the St. Louis Blues before the trade deadline, Stastny is competing in his fifth career playoff series against the Wild. Their last series victory was in 1987.

Head coach Paul Maurice said he expects the Wild will get into their comfort zone at home and his players have to be ready to handle the loud crowd.


"We've played a very fast game", observed Jets defenceman Joshua Morrissey. Winnipeg went 32-7-2 on home ice. "We've had moments all year where we've needed to respond at certain points in the regular season, so it's no different tomorrow". Their only loss was at Xcel Energy Center, which holds about 20,000 fans. In the end the snow forced more than 490 cancellations, including the flight that should have brought the Winnipeg Jets to the Twin Cities. The team later said on Twitter that the players returned to Winnipeg the same afternoon and will attempt to fly to Minneapolis Sunday. "We're really only focused on home games at this point", the spokesman said.

"We have to play our absolute best", Boudreau said. When he went down to the U.S. Saturday morning, he was accompanied by his father, Don Smith, and step-mother, Alana Brownlee, who will also be watching Game 3 live with him.

Laine then scored his second of the playoffs to put the game away at 4-0 with only two minutes remaining when he one-timed a pass from Nikolaj Ehlers. They were diverted to Duluth, Minnesota and waited there for two hours on the tarmac before returning to Winnipeg. The Jets also cranked up their physical play Friday, outhitting the visitors 38-23. With AP Photos.The good news for the Tampa Bay Lightning is they're up 2-0 on New Jersey in the first round of the National Hockey League playoffs and still haven't played their best.

This is the first playoff series for 11 players on the Jets' roster. Atlanta was swept from the 2007 post-season by the New York Rangers. 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". "The lineup hasn't been quite full", said forward Bryan Little, who began Wednesday's game centring Perreault's line alongside Joel Armia. "While you're here, you might as well give it all you've got".

"It's going to be tough down there, but my prediction is they're going to win it in (overtime)".

"I know a lot of the guys were a little nervous when I first made the move, but luckily it worked out well", laughed Myers. "I felt good tonight and we'll try and continue that going home".
