Jets dispatch Wild for 2-0 series lead

THE CANADIAN PRESS  John Woods Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice yells at an official during game against the Minnesota Wild

It took a lot of faith and confidence in his team to not make any changes after such an emphatic loss, especially in the playoffs. When he went down to the U.S. Saturday morning, he was accompanied by his father, Don Smith, and step-mother, Alana Brownlee, who will also be watching Game 3 live with him.

Sean Couturier had a goal and two assists, Brian Elliott stopped 34 shots and the Philadelphia Flyers cooled off the Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-1, on Friday night to even the first-round series at a game apiece in Pittsburgh.

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.

The Wild seemed to be holding on through much of the game before a three-goal third period by the Jets put it out of reach. A lot of their young players had huge games (Ivan Provorov had two points; Nolan Patrick and Travis Konecny both scored goals). They bounced back from an embarrassing 7-0 loss in the opener to beat the Penguins for the first time this season. Team merchandise is also very popular amongst fans across North America. But coaches and players know that, in itself, isn't enough. "That is key for me and allows me to stay calm and confident as well". "The success that comes off winning a game - all of those are really important things to capture".

Even though it is on the other side of the downtown from the game, he is advising people to leave early because parking will be at a premium. Quick has 21 saves on 22 shots, and his only goal allowed was a almost impossible to stop rebound.

Jets fans making the trip south to Minneapolis Saturday for Games 3 and 4 of the NHL Stanley Cup playoff series with the Minnesota Wild were in for a shock as what is being described as an historic storm hit Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Blake Wheeler was certain the second game would be different. Instead, Elliott calmly snagged Crosby's backhand out of the air and kept the Penguins off the board.

Wild left wing Marcus Foligno left tangles with Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tyler Myers in the first period of their game on Sunday. Myers would later leave the game after getting injured during a collision with Foligno
Jets dispatch Wild for 2-0 series lead

The warning extends from the metro to much of southwestern Minnesota.

Do you know how dedicated your fanbase has to be to make the crowd look like that? What's it like when you get down and you're in the third period.

Winnipeg might have an advantage if this one comes down to the wire.

"I don't know if it was about pride", said Elliott.

Slowly, calmly, the Jets returned to the form they had shown in the third period of Game 1 when they came from behind to claim victory. "They've been unreal for us throughout the first two games here". "Hopefully we play well". "It's been a great season so far, we just want to keep it going". Until the 14:47 mark in the first period of Game 2. Then there is the fact that Elliott's career postseason numbers as a whole - including a forgettable performance in Calgary a year ago - have not been great. "That is what it's all about it".

As the series jumps towns, from Whiteout to whiteout, the Wild look to lean on the crowd support that boosted them to the second-best home record in 2017-18 (27-6-8). They cannot give the Penguins four power plays every game or get outshot by a 35-20 margin and expect to win many games by four goals.

Does he have that in him the rest of the way?
