Wild show they can be physical, too, in blowout win over Jets

Wild show they can be physical, too, in blowout win over Jets

The Wild set a franchise postseason record for goals in a home game.

Hellebuyck had little chance on Minnesota's third goal, early in the middle period, as Dumba's shot from the point made it through a crowd at the top of the crease for a 3-1 Wild lead.

They didn't play that way. They were sloppy and loose, nowhere near as physical and they didn't get playoff goaltending.

"We should invite them all back", Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. There were a number of times where the Wild forwards were able to strip the Jets of puck possession or create turnovers of their own in the Jets zone.

Read from from Wyman here. He was but a rumour in Games 1 and 2, so Boudreau is reuniting Staal with Mikael Granlund in hopes to wake him up.

Game two of the Jets-Wild series takes place Friday at 6:30 p.m.

They finished second in the National Hockey League in points during the regular season, and they had the NHL's best home record.

"But here we are after a Game 3 in which all the gentilities of two northern neighbors known for their insufferable friendliness were buried over the course of 60 minutes in favor of one of those brass knuckle battles where everyone was fighting dirty all night long, or at least as long as the final result was still in doubt, which turned out to be two periods".

True North said it also plans to raise the height of the screen located at the north end of Donald near Portage so fans can see the game better.

He collected a pass from Boston University's Jordan Greenway, who became the first hockey player to suit up in the Olympic Games, NCAA tournament and NHL playoffs in the same year. "I try to shoot as many pucks as I can and if they're cheating on me then Mark is going to be open and they have to pay for it".

"We have to take care of business at home". It was totally different.

Wheeler and Tyler Myers scored for the Jets, but Myers left the game in the second period after an awkward collision with the boards and did not return. He whiffed on it.

Asked to comment on the department's decision not to consider supplemental discipline, Maurice said: "You know what, there are very clear guidelines as to my opinions, so I would disagree with the decision". 'We're in a series here.

"We went over some video today", said defenseman Jared Spurgeon, who offered some words of encouragement for Soucy.

Playoff inexperience and penalties were part of Jason Bell's story in the Free Press.

The home team is 4-0 in the last four meetings. You just go out and play your game. We didn't have that in our game. The offense also sputtered in the loss as they had averaged 4.00 gpg over their previous seven games. "Play out the string".

The only shot the Jets sent on target over the first 11-plus minutes was the one by Wheeler that went in, a wide-angle attempt on the power play and a softie if there ever was one in keeping with Dubnyk's uncanny tendency to let fluke goals get by him while making many more high-degree-of-difficulty stops.
