Wild hope to continue digging out vs. Jets

Wild hope to continue digging out vs. Jets

"I thought they were physical the whole game". With their backs now against the wall, the Wild must come out firing in Game 3 at Xcel Energy Center on Sunday night if they want to avoid an early postseason exit.

"I think you're always trying to change inside of a series, and when you get familiar with a team".

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

"But here we are after a Game 3 in which all the gentilities of two northern neighbors known for their insufferable friendliness were buried over the course of 60 minutes in favor of one of those brass knuckle battles where everyone was fighting dirty all night long, or at least as long as the final result was still in doubt, which turned out to be two periods".

The Wild, who along with Anaheim and Pittsburgh are among only three teams in the National Hockey League to make the playoffs in each of the past six consecutive seasons, headed home Friday night in a sadly familiar position.

But the Wild went on a spree after that, scoring three goals before the period's end to take a commanding 6-2 lead.

Minnesota is ranked 25th this season with 5.8 takeaways per game. It was Staal's first goal of the playoffs.

The Jets were well aware that the Wild would be no pushovers playing at home where Minnesota had lost just six times in regulation in 41 regular-season games. Then you get in the city and it's a big metropolitan city.

The Jets lead the Wild 2-0 in their best of seven conference quarterfinal series.

The state was being pummelled by a severe winter storm that dumped more than 30 centimetres of snow in some locations and caused the cancellation of around 500 flights.

Paul International Airport shut down operations for hours Saturday night, the Jets rerouted their flight to Duluth, hoping to drive down to St. Paul in the evening.

A pair of teams from the Central Division will duke it out this evening as the Winnipeg Jets rumble with the Minnesota Wild. "(Jets coach) Paul Maurice, it's your turn".

And then things really started to get tough.

On how the game was called: "The officiating, like the Jets" play, was also night-and-day from Games 1 and 2, where the decision apparently had been to just let the boys play. The Jets skipped the customary morning skate and arrived Sunday about eight hours before faceoff.

The visiting Jets have relied on Blake Wheeler and Patrik Laine heavily this year. The Jets better have received them, especially with the way they have killed penalties - not well - in this series ... "So this travel thing is a non-issue as far as I'm concerned".

The game was a freewheeling, hard-hitting affair, picking up from the intense play that was established throughout the first two games.

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 that hit Jonas Brodin's stick and fluttered toward Dubnyk.

It was well-deserved, as suddenly the Wild are right back in the best-of-seven series.

First it was Mikael Granlund finding the open side of the net at the 9:47 mark to tie the score. In the playoffs, the team is risen to an average of 38.3 shots on goal ( 3.0 goals per game).
