Patrik Laine plays air-violin after burying Wild in Game 2

Patrik Laine plays air-violin after burying Wild in Game 2

"I'm not going to speculate on whether we're going to use him or not use him".

"There's a lot of inexperience out there, and they're only going to get better by playing", coach Bruce Boudreau said of a blue line that took a major hit when Suter, a 13-year veteran and the guy who has held the Wild defense together the past six seasons, broke an ankle in a March 31 game. Morrow was acquired at the trade deadline from Montreal in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick. 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.

So far Morton has yet to attend a Jets home game during the playoffs. "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". "When he shoots the puck, every chance, it's got a chance to go in". Devan Dubnyk stopped 40 shots for Minnesota to go along with Wednesday's 37.

After pounding in the final nail in the Wild's coffin in Game 2 on Friday, the Jets" super sophomore temporarily turned his stick from a goal-scoring weapon into a musical prop as he "played the violin' directly in front of Minnesota's bench during his celebration fly-by. Losing key contributors such as Mark Scheifele, Jacob Trouba and Tobias Enstrom for long stretches failed to slow them as they finished with the NHL's second-best regular season record at 52-20-10. The team's only post-season appearance since relocating to Winnipeg from Atlanta in 2011 was a sweep at the hands of Anaheim in 2015.

Tyler Myers also scored for Winnipeg.

Jets centre Bryan Little has been with the franchise since 2007-08. We have to win one game. "Too little, too late, but I think we showed fight", Schneider said.

Normally when teams are down two goals, they dominate the shot counter and their opponent hangs on for dear life.

The Atlantic Division champions scored three times in a 2:47 span in the second period, and the reeling Devils pulled goalie Keith Kinkaid after Killorn's third goal in two games made it 5-1 with 6:48 remaining in the period. "What I mean by that is we can say we had strong pushes in certain things, but I think we did take a step tonight".

"That said, it can still be rewarding when we turn the game on and see Nick Seeler or Carson Soucy or someone else making a play" for the National Hockey League team, Lalonde added. "If we don't have anything, just make a simple play".

The setting is familiar, and the home ice at Xcel Energy Center has been good to the Wild all season.

The Wild returned home after Friday's game and practised Saturday. The agency hosted the party in co-ordination with True North Sports & Entertainment, which owns and operates the Winnipeg Jets and the team's home arena, Bell MTS Place. With just over two minutes left in the game, young winger Patrik Laine added his second goal of the series. Like in the closing seconds of the second period Crosby was standing by himself alongside a wide open net and inexplicably fired it through the other side of the crease, completing missing a chance to get the Penguins on the board.
