Toronto's Kadri banned 3 games in another punishment doled out by National Hockey League

Toronto's Kadri banned 3 games in another punishment doled out by National Hockey League

"Just another day at the office", he deadpanned.

The Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party is expanding following a victory for the Winnipeg Jets over the Minnesota Wild in the opening game of the first round of Stanley Cup playoffs. It's 4 rounds long, each a best of 7 game series, meaning that the team to first win 4 games moves on to the next round.

They were very solid at the defensive end of the ice as well as they ranked 5th in goals allowed, giving up 2.63 gpg, while also ranking 15th in shots allowed (31.9 spg) and 9th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 18.2% of their chances.

The Winnipeg penalty was a roughing infraction on Byfuglien, who was active with a team-high three shots on goal through two periods.

The Winnipeg Jets celebrate a goal by Paul Stasny during the third period at Bell MTS Place.

Byfuglien is starting to look a lot like he did during the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when he led the Chicago Blackhawks with 11 goals and seemed to repeatedly come up big in key moments.

On Friday night, they'll attempt to earn their second.

"They're coming in with confidence and that's all you can ask from the young guys", Myers said.

But that's not all he does. In fact, there may have been more fight from Bruce Boudreau's unit after the game had already been wrapped up than during the Game 2 contest, in which Laine showcased his talent once again amid more than 40 shots on goal.

Cullen took a backhand pass from Jordan Wheeler and beat Hellebuyck on the blocker side at 1:46 of the third period to tie it. He picked up an assist both nights filtering a ideal pass from behind the net to Stastny for the eventual game-winner.

Kadri was tossed from Toronto's Game 1 loss at Boston for boarding Wingels, and Blue Jackets winger Josh Anderson was thrown out of their overtime victory at Washington for a hit from behind that injured Capitals defenseman Michal Kempny. "His game was underappreciated this year".

Since this is the first season for professional hockey in Las Vegas (and the first time many people have attended a hockey game) and the first time the Vegas Golden Knights have been in the playoffs for the Stanley Cup, we thought some people might appreciate a primer of sorts.

"You're trying to score and you're around the net and you know he's somewhere, but you can't really think at that point", Koivu said. What's it like when you get down and you're in the third period. "You never know what can happen". Patrick Laine and Tyler Myers each notched a goal and an assist, while Jack Roslovic had two assists.

By the start of the third period, the Jets held a 27-14 shot advantage, and the Wild clearly would have been in an even deeper hole if Dubnyk had not played so well.

Game 3 is Sunday in Philadelphia. "There was a weekend we had back-to-back road games in Nashville and then in Dallas.

The lineup hasn't been quite full", said forward Bryan Little, who began Wednesday's game centring Perreault's line alongside Joel Armia. "Being physical is one of our strong suits". "I don't think we played as well as we can". If the hits are there, take it.

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