Laine makes first goal count: Jets sniper ties game in third period

If the Wild are going to even the series going back to the twin cities, they need their other two defensive pairings to play better and prevent the Jets from taking as many shots. "You're looking for disaster there", Boudreau told a media scrum.

Jets captain Blake Wheeler said in a press scrum after practice on Thursday that it wasn't surprising that bad blood would be spilled so early in the series. Dubnyk stopped 37 shots for the Wild, who were third in the division with 101 points (45-26-11).

If the Wild can bait the Jets into the kind of penalties they fell victim to in recent seasons, maybe Minnesota will have a shot to offset some of Winnipeg's statistical advantages here, but the safe bet is on the Jets simply overpowering their division rivals with the strength of their power play. "And I think we can play a lot better".

In the final two-and-a-half minutes of Game 1, the Winnipeg Jets iced the puck six times and had to deal with exhausted players and potentially damaging faceoffs in their own zone.

Niederreiter, who had 32 points (18 goals, 14 assists) in 63 games this season, said the line was too conservative against the Jets.

"Whether it's just throwing pucks to the net or whatever it is, you have to find a way to create some havoc sometimes and see what happens", Dubnyk said.

After roughly 5,100 fans packed a portion of Donald Street Wednesday night for the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party, organizers are expanding the event following the Jets' 3-2 win over the visiting Minnesota Wild. Stastny dropped the disc to Laine, who took his time before wiring a wrist shot past Dubnyk, top cheese.

The Wild will surely look to generate more offence, while the Jets will simply have to be quicker in the heavy traffic zones. Mikko is so responsible and does so much for this team, but in the third period he was gassed but Boudreau had him on the ice for the entire last few minutes with Dubnyk on the bench for the extra attacker. The Wild kept the pressure on, jumping ahead to a 2-1 lead two minutes after Cullen's strike on a great individual effort by Mikael Granlund.

"We were able to give ourselves a chance a grab a lead there and even when it's tied we were still in good shape", Parise said. "I'll take a faceoff off an icing all day long over a turnover there". They were aggressive all over the ice. When things start to come undone offensively is when they fall into the over passing game. The only situation I can see where Ennis gets in is if Eriksson Ek cannot go, otherwise Jordan Greenway stays in the lineup and deservedly so as he is becoming a real force for the Wild up front. Joe Morrow leads Winnipeg with one goal, Dustin Byfuglien has one assist and Patrik Laine has four shots on goal. "I don't think we played as well as we can".

"I was trying to do too much nearly", he said.

First, Jordan Greenway - playing in his first National Hockey League playoff game - found Matt Cullen (200 games of National Hockey League playoff experience) who put the puck past Connor Hellebuyck just 1:46 into the third period.

The Minnesota Wild came into the postseason struggling some as they had gone just 3-5 over their last eight games of the regular season and their struggles continued in game one of this series.

Although coming out to the deafening roars of 16,435 Jets fans dressed in white from head to toe, Winnipeg failed to bring their hometown supporters to their feet in what was a relatively slow opening period of play.

One thing that could give his team a slight advantage in the series is the fact that the Wild enter with a combined 748 games of postseason experience on the roster and the Jets have 282.
