Wild fall to Jets 4-1 in Game 2 of playoffs

Wild fall to Jets 4-1 in Game 2 of playoffs

And where does the value lie? "But his game was good".

The Winnipeg Jets got a boost from their frenzied fans over their two victories at home over Minnesota. I think we needed to just come out and have that intensity that we have had in the past two-to-three weeks of the season just to make it here.

"I'm hoping there will be lots of Jets fans there, regardless we will be very loud and vocal to support our team, and we are wearing white!", emailed Wazny, a season ticket holder for last two seasons and fan since the days of the original Jets who got tickets for Game 3 as soon as the playoff schedule was released.

Game 3 is Monday night in Newark, New Jersey. "It's a loud building, so what we need to do is handle it". That's how Friday night went for Minnesota.

Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and Tyler Johnson also scored for Tampa Bay, which is up 2-0 in the series after going 0-2-1 against the Devils during the regular season. He delivered eight hits, including the back-to-back hits in the second period that got Winnipeg's vaunted crowd into the game.

It was a goal by Erik Haula that broke the 1-1 tie and made a comeback look even more hard for the Kings moving forward.

The victory gave the Jets a 2-0 lead in the first round of their NHL Western Conference best-of-seven playoff series. "It's tight out there, so you gotta be able to make plays quickly and he can do that".

"We had a time in Washington, one time we had a noon game, Pittsburgh couldn't get in, they bussed in 10 hours before the game and outplayed us".

Both of Killorn's goals came on power plays. If they can't do that, this series is all but over. Alex Tuch took a careening puck that ricocheted off the back glass and put a shot over a hapless Quick to give the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead. The Golden Knights have now had 80 minutes of scoreless hockey in this series. The biggest difference in the series so far is Minnesota's inability to contain the Winnipeg offensive attack, or get anything going themselves. He walked by Minnesota winger Jason Zucker and then whipped a shot past Devan Dubnyk.

So much for the Penguins wiping out the Flyers on their two-game home stand to start the Metropolitan Division showdown. Same players. Same line combinations.

He whiffed on two long distance Patric Hornqvist shots that rang off the goal post to his left, and even on bad angle shots he seemed to be fighting the puck a little bit.

The biggest blow between the Flyers and Penguins in Game 2 of the divisional showdown may not have been intentional at all. The Jets have gone 33-9 here at home for the year and they have averaged 3.79 gpg and have allowed 2.45 gpg in those games. And that led to the Flyers' first goal of the playoffs - a deep shot from Shayne Gostisbehere. If the Wild doesn't want this series to end the way those did, this is a must win.

Midway through the game, former Calder Trophy victor, defenceman Tyler Myers walked around Minny's Jason Zucker, before shifting his way directly to the Wild cage, and burying a quick snapshot past the near-unbeatable Devan Dubnyk.
