Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets, 4-13

Down by two goals with 11 minutes left in the third period, the Minnesota Wild still hadn't put a shot on the Winnipeg Jets' goal in the frame. The Wild forwards and defensemen have simply been no match for the Jets' talent. He also assisted on Stastny's goal.

"In that building, the puck crosses the blue line and the crowd is expecting the chance (to score) it just needs to get near the net and they get pretty excited", Maurice said Saturday before the Jets departed for Minnesota.

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

They're looking at similar events for the upcoming away games, Donnelly said, but there are no firm plans yet.

This game was at 1-0 before the teams headed to the 3rd period where they scored four goals combined. Both teams are loaded with highly skilled professionals trained to force their opponents into making mistakes. Instead, the concern after 120 minutes of hockey has been the Wild offense, which has managed only three goals and 37 shots in two games.

Patrik Laine also scored for the Jets, but the game was finished before this goal. Not long after, defenseman Tyler Myers walked around Jason Zucker before beating Dubnyk with a shot to the far side to give the Jets the lead. The difference of course is that the Wild did not make those turnovers count on the scoreboard. But, most of all, they're competitive and they care.

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.

The Wild announced that the pre-game party for Sunday's game has been cancelled.

"It would be disappointing if we can't go, but it is what it is".

Man City confirmed as champions as rivals United lose
United manager Jose Mourinho had long given up hopes of winning the title, instead focusing on finishing second. Ex-United defender Jonny Evans is a doubt for West Brom with a knee injury.

While the Wild are short on defense due to a Ryan Suter injury, the Jets have three pairs of defensemen rolling.

The next area that needs to be addressed and I am truly not sure Boudreau will ever do this but he needs to manage the minutes that Koivu is playing.

It was a scoreless first period, though the Jets held a 13-4 edge in shots on goal.

Boudreau doesn't have to win it all to win the eternal gratitude of Wild fans; a genuine playoff run will do - one that doesn't end until Minnesota has been back to the Western Conference final for the first time since 2002-03.

"When we wake up tomorrow, you look back and say: 'OK, which parts of the game did we do well.' And we'll be able to look at a lot of that tape and say we did really well". Koivu did eventually glide to the hashmark and the whistle was blown.

Minnesota opened Friday night's game with some burst, testing Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck with nine shots in the first period. He's played very, very well for us.

"Awesome to see a guy step in, new to the team a little bit, and have a huge effect", said Jets captain Blake Wheeler. The team's an impressive 23-14 in games decided by one goal, while Minnesota is 12-16 in such games. "You'd like to say you played the ideal game, but somebody else has a vote out there", coach Jon Cooper said Saturday after a 5-3 victory in Game 2 of the first-round matchup.

Saturday's practice included a lot of work on play through the neutral zone, a problem in Games 1 and 2.
