Jets' playoffs street party: Winnipeg's newest tradition needs a nickname

The Minnesota Wild lost the puck and the lead - and eventually Game 1.

"We just want to play the best hockey we can play, and give ourselves a chance to win", said Gallant.

Despite winning by one in Game 1, the Winnipeg Jets doubled the number of shots taken by the Minnesota Wild.

"But if they do win tomorrow and it's tied 1-1 going to Minnesota, that's not going to shake us".

The 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs began April 12 for three Spartans as Derek Grant, Ryan Miller and Torey Krug will look to help their teams claim the sport's ultimate prize. I think when we didn't get it behind them.

The Jets committed their own fair share of mistakes in game one and most notably was their lackadaisical puck control in their own zone.

Paul Stastny, Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine scored in the third period for Winnipeg. Myers had a busy first two periods because he was in the penalty box twice, once in the first period and once in the second. Rookie forward Jack Roslovic, replacing injured veteran Mathieu Perreault, had a pair of assists.

"We went over some video today", said defenseman Jared Spurgeon, who offered some words of encouragement for Soucy.

Zach Parise tallied a goal for the Wild late to spoil the shutout, and Daniel Winnik and Nick Seeler both dropped the gloves in the final 10 seconds of the game.

Laine led the league with 20 power-play goals, and Blake Wheeler was second in power-play points. I don't think it's for a lack of effort. Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck racked up 18 saves.

I have found it very interesting listening to the recaps and dialogue following the Wild's 3-2 loss in game one. Crosby was dominant on Wednesday, on the opening night of the playoffs, as he recorded a hat trick in a 7-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Bell MTS Place was a zoo on Wednesday night, with 15,000-plus fans wearing white and emptying their lungs for Game 1 and another 5,000 or so celebrating the win on the street outside.

"So it's nice to get that off our backs and, hopefully, we get a lot more". We played OK, but... we took a huge step (Friday). "You're not going to win like that". The Wild are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Winnipeg, 1-5 in the last 6 meetings and the home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. I have yet to hear anyone chastise Laine for being totally out of the play allowing the odd man scoring opportunity that created the Wild's first goal by Matt Cullen.

Despite being unable to beat Dubnyk early on, the Jets continued to play with a playoff confidence not seen before by Winnipeg fans. The Jets then turned on a switch and had outshot the visitors 13-9 when the period ended, but many were from the outside.

The Jets had the game's first power play 24 seconds into the middle period after Minnesota's Eric Staal was called for tripping. That could present a hard matchup for the Jets and just may deliver a goal or two for the Wild, who knows.

"Unfortunately, I didn't get a good look", Hellebuyck said about the hit on Koivu. And the Capitals went into the playoffs with goaltender problems - something Blue Jackets definitely did not have with Sergei Bobrovsky on top of his game. "I missed the first one there with an empty net and I don't know, the puck just got away from me".

Myers was dinged again for roughing forward Charlie Coyle 33 seconds after his goal, but the Jets kept the pressure on with some hustle and hits. At the 8:41 mark of the second period, lanky Jets defenceman Tyler Myers twisted his way in from the blueline and pinged a shot from the right circle in off the far post that Dubnyk could not prevent.
