Minnesota Wild vs Winnipeg Jets (Game 4): Preview & Prediction

Winnipeg Jets vs. Minnesota Wild 4/17/18, Prediction & Odds

The Jets defenceman scored at 12:47 of the third period to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild in Game 1 of their first-round NHL Western Conference playoff series.

The Jets lead the series 2-0.

Skiver: One of the best logos in sports might have had a chance to at least drag this series to six before Ryan Suter went down for the season with an ankle injury, but the prolific scoring of the Jets is just too much for this Minnesota team.

"I'm hoping there will be lots of Jets fans there, regardless we will be very loud and vocal to support our team, and we are wearing white!", emailed Wazny, a season ticket holder for last two seasons and fan since the days of the original Jets who got tickets for Game 3 as soon as the playoff schedule was released. He fired a one-timer that went off Wild forward Charlie Coyle's stick and past goalie Devan Dubnyk. The goalie made 37 saves, his opposite number Connor Hellebuyck made just 18.

Fans are primed for these playoffs.

Game 3 is Sunday in Philadelphia.

"The only thing I can compare it to is when I was in Montreal in the playoffs four or five years ago, when we had those good runs for a couple of years when I was an assistant coach". "They've been unreal for us throughout the first two games here". "And they kept coming". "But his game was good". "I don't think (we took our foot off the gas)..."

DeChambeau surges to halfway lead at Hilton Head
DeChambeau had been 6-under par on Harbour Town's three par 5s the first two rounds. Poulter showed he's not done playing high-level golf with a bogey-free 64.

If they keep taking penalties and giving up that many shots Elliott is going to have to be the difference in the series. "We've been that way all year", Little said. When he went down to the U.S. Saturday morning, he was accompanied by his father, Don Smith, and step-mother, Alana Brownlee, who will also be watching Game 3 live with him. He's played very, very well for us. They were wired right from the start.

Perreault left the game midway into the second period and did not return for the third. "I'm not going to speculate on whether we're going to use him or not use him".

Boudreau hinted that he might switch up the blue line a bit for Game 2, maintaining his top pairing of Jonas Brodin and Dumba, and perhaps elevating Nick Seeler to play alongside Spurgeon, and dropping Soucy to play alongside Nate Prosser. Losing key contributors such as Mark Scheifele, Jacob Trouba and Tobias Enstrom for long stretches failed to slow them as they finished with the NHL's second-best regular season record at 52-20-10.

In fact, with the Wild's postseason history and bad first-round matchup, expectations outside the locker room have never been lower heading into a playoff series, which is odd for a team that earned 101 points. The Wild's penalty kill hasn't been that much worse than Winnipeg's, but the latter has also been a force with extra-man advantages, ranking fifth in the National Hockey League in power-play success.

The pair are planning to come back Monday, providing the blizzard lets up. They're a good team at home.

To make matters worse, the Wild actually hung with the Jets early in the game amid a back-and-forth first period.
