Wild Seek To Continue Desperate Play Against Jets In Game 4

Wild Seek To Continue Desperate Play Against Jets In Game 4

The Wild are heading back to Minnesota - for Game 3 Sunday and Game 4 on Tuesday - trailing 2-0 in the best-of-seven series after losing the first two games to the Jets in Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Jets defeated the Edmonton Oilers 3 - 0 in the nightcap, Jeffery Morash scored twice with Jeremy Estey added the other.

Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise had power-play goals in the first period for the spark that was missing on the road, and the Wild scored four times in the second to beat the Jets 6-2 on Sunday night. He delivered eight hits, including the back-to-back hits in the second period that got Winnipeg's vaunted crowd into the game.

"I'm going down for a blocked shot, and he's going by me and he pulls up at the last second", Foligno explained. He set up a Paul Stastny goal with a backhand saucer pass from behind the net. The Wild made adjustments and were much better and the Jets simply didn't respond.

Second Period_4, Minnesota, Dumba 1 (Winnik, Eriksson Ek), 3:32. And a day after Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said that the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Byfuglien actually lets up before he hits people, the Roseau product did it again to Koivu.

But that's not all he does. At the defensive end of the ice, they were above average this year as they ranked 11th in goals allowed, giving up 2.79 gpg, while also ranking 12th in shots allowed (31.3 spg) and 13th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 18.8% of their chances. Wheeler (93 points) has tallied 24 goals and 69 assists, and has recorded two or more points 25 times. He picked up an assist both nights filtering a flawless pass from behind the net to Stastny for the eventual game-winner.

"We gotta play the biggest game of the year". "His game was underappreciated this year. Hopefully we play well". But he didn't score and that seemed to draw a lot of the concern.

In addition to his busy touring schedule, Shelton also appears alongside the other coaches on NBC's The Voice . She then continued of the emotional and raw track, "I mean, how many times have we seen The Wizard of Oz? ".

In fact, with the Wild's postseason history and bad first-round matchup, expectations outside the locker room have never been lower heading into a playoff series, which is odd for a team that earned 101 points.

"I think you're always trying to change inside of a series, and when you get familiar with a team".

Look what happens when you hand your star goalie a durable lead instead of a sympathetic flak jacket.

"When you see those guys have success, it kind of relieved pressure on everyone else", said forward Marcus Foligno, who scored his first Stanley Cup Playoff goal in Game 3. Desperate, the Wild had Spurgeon on the ice for 20 minutes, 19 seconds against the Jets.

"We did bend a little bit in the third but didn't break, so it's a good feeling to be up 2-0", Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman said. They were out-shot 14-5 in the second period and 16-3 in the third period. In his career (regular season), he has gone 108-94 with a 2.41 GAA in his home games and 64-63 with a 2.64 GAA against the Central Division, while against the Jets he has gone 8-9 with a 2.75 GAA. "We wanted to be able to weather the storm early if they tried to come out like they did in the first two games". "Being physical is one of our strong suits". Don't go chasing them.

"We expect [Winnipeg] to be better for Game 4 and we're going to have to be a lot better too".
