Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets - 4/15/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

  • Minnesota Wild v Winnipeg Jets- Game One

Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien were credited with assists. Although once again battling a slow start and a red-hot opposing netminder, the Jets manhandled the visiting Wild, crushing the Americans in almost every facet of the game, finished atop Minnesota in the shot department 44-17, and ultimately, with a 4-1 victory.

The Minnesota Wild apologists will tell you Zach Parise's power-play goal with 44.8 seconds left in a 4-1 loss Friday night in Winnipeg is something their team can build on. Over the last five seasons, the Jets only made the playoffs once.

Asked in the morning how Wheeler, the Jets captain, would like to see Game 2 start, he quickly responded, "Ideal?"

Upon video review, it was offside, but it had nothing to do with either team scoring a goal. It doesn't come around very often, so enjoy it. If Winnipeg can get Bryan Little going, they will be very hard to beat. "But ideal doesn't happen very often". Game 2 was indeed different from Game 1.

Dubnyk made 37 saves in the loss, while Connor Hellebuyck stopped 18 of the 20 shots he faced for the Jets. "We count on him". With shot after shot, opportunity after opportunity, the Jets continued to pour on the offence, for the duration of minutes 21 through 40.

"Every game down there is like a playoff game", said Gallant in describing the atmosphere at Golden Knights' home games.

This was different. They now had a win, their first, in the National Hockey League postseason.

"We're going to pull the sweep off". It was just like the city - happy to be there.

Seahawks postpone visit after Colin Kaepernick won't say if he'll stop kneeling
It's getting harder and harder for NFL teams to claim not signing Colin Kaepernick is exclusively a football decision. Kaepernick has been a free agent since last March when the 49ers did not pick up his contract option.

Boudreau: "It's not like we're not trying to get there".

"I saw that Parise was trying to block (Dubnyk's) blocker side and I just tried to shoot past his leg and I think I hit a pretty good spot", said Laine.

"Said it coming in, nobody is really giving us a serious chance in this series", Hakstol said. They would head back home with the series at 1-1 and in home games this year, the Wild are 27-6-7-1 this season. They're looking to win their second straight on the road against a Ducks team that struggled to get anything going in the opener. What's it like when you get down and you're in the third period. The crowd was arguably louder.

It was nearly like the Wild played scared after that. "Hopefully, we can control that tonight with a couple of goals". With the score so close at the time and the Wild hanging in by the skin of their teeth, it's a penalty the Jets can't afford to take ... Jack Roslovic assisted on Myers' and Copp's tallies. "It's a beast of its own". The Penguins were 0-for-4 with three shots on goal with the extra man Friday. The Jets tightened up in that area in Game 2 and though it was only 1-0 into the third period, it was never really that close of a contest. Copp redirected a shot from Bryan Little for his goal.

Laine then scored his second of the playoffs to put the game away at 4-0 with only two minutes remaining when he one-timed a pass from Nikolaj Ehlers. That included three shots at Hellebuyck during a power play with Myers in the box for tripping. One of the linesmen tried to call an offside late in the first period but had a whistle malfunction.

"The first one, there's always some nerves, some excitement", he said.

Eric Staal and his line of course must be better than they were in game one, but again, that is an easy finger point situation. "When you turn the pucks over in the middle of the ice". The fans are awesome.
