Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets - 4/17/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

17 April, 2018, 16:50 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Winnipeg: Victory over Minnesota shows they mean business

The Wild will look to continue their dominance on home ice this season in Game 4 Tuesday night.

The Jets now lead the series 2-0, with action moving to Minnesota for Game 3 Sunday and Game 4 on Tuesday.

"We're here to play", goalie Devan Dubnyk said, "and we're fully capable of pushing hard". "It is not a good look for the Jets, who are the more talented and the more skilled of the two teams".

"We have enough scoring depth that we feel like if we get enough opportunities, we can bury one", Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler said. A split is always the goal of the road team in the first two games of a seven game series, and the Wild had an opportunity with a 3rd period lead in game one.

Connor Hellebuyck made 18 saves for the Jets, who finished second overall in the National Hockey League and Central Division with 114 points (52-20-10). "We are going home".

The Jets' possession has been off the charts in this series, a large part of the reason they've outshot the Wild 84 -37 in two games. A freak April blizzard hitting central Minnesota shut down MSP Airport during the day, forcing the Jets to land in Duluth, Minn., in the early afternoon. The Jets skipped the customary morning skate and arrived Sunday about eight hours before faceoff.

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.

"Well the message is simple: You've got to win four (games)", Boudreau said.

The only shot the Jets sent on target over the first 11-plus minutes was the one by Wheeler that went in, a wide-angle attempt on the power play and a softie if there ever was one in keeping with Dubnyk's uncanny tendency to let fluke goals get by him while making many more high-degree-of-difficulty stops.

"And then he shut the door".

"I'm going down for a blocked shot, and he's going by me and he pulls up at the last second", Foligno explained.

The Wild snapped right back, though. Patrik Laine netted over 40 goals this season for the Jets - but can he translate that to the playoffs? Parise freed himself from a tie-up in traffic with Jacob Trouba to move in position for the redirect of the second one.

It ended with the Wild getting goals from six players to climb back into the best-of-seven series and perhaps plant a seed of doubt in the mind of every player inside the Jets locker room. Then came the goals by Greenway and Staal, and the rout was on. "And that's when the game changed".

"They have been physical so we've got to push back", Jordan Greenway added.

Although Boudreau allowed extra rest for defenseman Matt Dumba, who has averaged 28 minutes, 30 seconds of ice time in the first two games as they try to fill the gap caused by Suter's absence.

There was a lot to like, at least, about the Wild's performance.

Josh Morrissey has repeated it several times already in this series: You need to have a short memory in the playoffs. As the puck went down the ice Koivu inexplicably stopped skating and the linesman was looking at him nearly to say "uh Mikko, you know you need to get to the hashmarks for me to blow the whistle".
