Winnipeg Jets fans descend on St. Paul, Minnesota

Minnesota Wild v Winnipeg Jets- Game One

The puck drops on Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinal on Friday night in Winnipeg. The scene will shift to Xcel Energy Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota for game three of their best-of-seven series. He kept trying hard shots that rarely troubled Devan Dubnyk in the Minnesota net.

The Winnipeg Jets sniper was eager to get the experience under his belt and he did more than that, supplying the game-tying goal at 4:51 of the third period, setting the stage for his team to walk away with a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night at Bell MTS Place. The Jets dominated the first two games and hope they can find the success in Game 4. They were good tonight and we didn't like our game.

"So it's nice to get that off our backs and, hopefully, we get a lot more".

Minnesota and Winnipeg exchanged power plays in the second period before the Jets found a second opportunity late in the frame as Nate Prosser went off for holding. The Jets have gone 20-22 on the road and they have averaged 2.83 gpg and have allowed 2.88 gpg in those games. During the regular season, he was 44-20 with a 2.36 GAA and a.924 save percentage on the year, including 14-13 with a 2.42 GAA and a.927 save percentage on the road.

It ended with the Wild getting goals from six players to climb back into the best-of-seven series and perhaps plant a seed of doubt in the mind of every player inside the Jets locker room.

The concept of a whiteout was less fun for the Jets come Saturday, as they tried to make their way to the Twin Cities for Game 3.

Winnipeg has had a very good season at home with a 34-7-2 record including the two playoff wins, so winning the first two games of this series came as no surprise.


Winnipeg Transit buses will be rerouted off of Graham Avenue from Carlton Street to Smith Street on Friday beginning at 5:30 p.m. and will return to their regular routes at 11:30 p.m.to accommodate an expected increase in pedestrian traffic. It was a huge win for them. "They never let up right until the final whistle". Mikael Granlund and Zach Praise each scored a power-play goal for the Minnesota Wild in the first.

As the clock wound to a close in the third period, everyone in the building rose to their feet, providing the Wild with a 60-second standing ovation.

Grabbing the win in game three was Devan Dubnyk, who stopped 29 of the 31 shots that he faced to improve to 8-16 with a 2.65 GAA and a.906 save percentage in the playoffs in his career.

Seeler has taken on even more responsibility with Ryan Suter out for the season, and while he doesn't bring the offensive firepower as someone like Matt Dumba, he has been elevated to to the second defensive pairing alongside Jared Spurgeon, using his big body to make the simple plays in both zones. The Jets better have received them, especially with the way they have killed penalties - not well - in this series ... They got swept by Anaheim in 2015.

"I don't really want to get into details because I'm putting this one behind me", said Hellebuyck.

But it wasn't just the Jets playing poorer. 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".
