Snowstorm Forces Jets To Fly Back To Winnipeg

Minnesota Wild left wing Marcus Foligno is stopped by Winnipeg Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck with defensive help from Jets' defenseman Tyler Myers in the first period of an NHL hockey game on Sunday

The Wild is in an 0-2 hole heading into Sunday's Game 3 of its first-round playoff series with the Winnipeg Jets.

Through two games in the series, the Wild have had little answer for the Jets, especially Byfuglien. His absence Friday would have a significant ripple effect on the lines and the second power-play unit, but official word on his status appears unlikely before the team takes the ice for pregame warmups.

That new confidence was shockingly apparent in the second period, when the Jets completely took over the game. He blocked a team-high three shots.

Less than three minutes later, the Jets went up 3-0 when Andrew Copp was able to tip a goalmouth pass behind Dubnyk, with Bryan Little and Roslovic assisting.

The Wild might be treading water in the playoffs, but they're here for the sixth consecutive season and among active players have a combined 584 playoff games under their belts.

Up 1-0 in the third period, veteran center Paul Stastny worked young forward Joel Eriksson-Ek in front of the net for an easy tap in past Dubnyk.

"You don't really have that much time to think", Elliott said when asked what his mindset was on that play.

But that's not all he does.

The game was very physical at the end of the contest.

In his first National Hockey League postseason, Laine has posted two goals and a helper with 10 shots on goal through just two games. He picked up an assist both nights filtering a ideal pass from behind the net to Stastny for the eventual game-winner. Both are season ticket holders and diehard Jets fans, Smith said. Previous year he managed a.925 save percentage against the St. Louis Blues and this time around he's kept them in both games.

"(Minnesota) did very good on home ice as we did, so we're certainly going to have to be ready", Myers said.

"There's a lot of good things in our game to like", Devils leading scorer Taylor Hall said.

"I think the fans recognize that we have a real shot of going deep this year and maybe even bringing home the (Stanley Cup). It's the playoffs. There's going to be battles, there's going to be swings of momentum, but the big thing for me is who won the game". "And we'll look at some and say that wasn't so good", Cooper added. But then you have to go through that process of what's it like when you give up a lead.

This franchise has never won a road playoff game, and as much as they enjoyed home ice in the first two games, the Jets are aware that a less-than-friendly reception is likely in Minnesota.

Alex Killorn scored twice during a four-goal second period, and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 18 shots in the final period to hold off the pesky Devils. Next door to Bell MTS Place, a block was closed for a street party, highlighted by the game shown on two giant screens for fans in the NHL's smallest market.

With 10 seconds left in the game, fists started flying and a total of 65 penalty minutes were recorded. "Being physical is one of our strong suits. You're kind of just going out there to play and sometimes that's a benefit for our team as well".
