Winnipeg is proving they have the most committed fans in the National Hockey League

15 April 2018

At long last, they didn't have to stop celebrating when the final horn sounded.

The Minnesota Wild hope to tie the series up at Bell MTS Place in Game 2 of the postseason's first round.

It is nearly never any one particular thing that goes into a win, and on Friday there was a lot that went right for the Flyers that went wrong in the first game.

Minnesota will be going with the same lineup it used in its Game 1 loss, when it got goals from Matt Cullen and Zach Parise.

The Jets continued to attack into the third and finally scored a second goal at the 6:42 mark when Patrick Laine, the 19-year-old Finnish sensation, got the puck from the back of the Wild net to Byfuglien - a defenceman, remember - and Byfuglien slipped the puck out to Paul Stastny, who flicked it high over Dubnyk's glove. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed two or less goals in four of their last six games.

Chemical watchdog backs Britain: Nerve agent poisoned former spy
The OPCW report does not name the nerve agent directly; its name and chemical structure were sent in a classified report to OPCW member states.

"I think we're going to take the first game down there. We've got to play our absolute best". Kinkaid was a big part of New Jersey's success after Schneider went down with groin and hip injuries in January, earning the right to start his first playoff series.

"The guys played so well in front of me, there's no fault". "There's a lot of grind that went into it". They bounced back from an embarrassing 7-0 loss in the opener to beat the Penguins for the first time this season.

A winter storm has temporarily diverted the Winnipeg Jets trip to Minneapolis for game three in the first round of NHL Playoffs. They got swept by Anaheim in 2015. The team looked shell-shocked; the crowd lost their buzz and it could have been easy for the Jets to give up.

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.

Vasilevskiy stopped 41 shots, while limiting the Devils to rookie Nico Hischier's unassisted goal in the opening period and Sami Vatanen's sixth career playoff goal late in the second before Blake Coleman's third-period tally trimmed Tampa Bay's lead to 5-3 with eight minutes left. 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. Dubnyk is now 7-15 with a 2.61 GAA and a.904 save percentage in the playoffs in his career.

Poirier stops Gaethje in 4th round of absolute barn burner
Hot prospect Israel Adesanya continued to show promise but couldn't finish his fight against Marvin Vettori . That's what I've been preparing for for 12 weeks. "I just stayed tough and believed in myself, got it done".

Finally, the tides seemed to change as Winnipeg was able to put some pucks past Minnesota's last line of defence. The Jets outshot the Wild 14-0 in the next several minutes and regained the lead.

"We had an opportunity with the lead in the third period and our goaltender playing good, we thought we had a chance to win", Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau said.

The Devils have played well in spurts, overcoming slow starts to keep both games interesting.

So not over yet, and the Wild return to the Xcel Energy center, where they compiled the second best home record in the league, trailing only the Jets.

Winnipeg won 3-2 on Wednesday night.
