"When he shoots the puck, every chance, it's got a chance to go in".
The Winnipeg Jets will play host to the Wild and look to take a commanding 2-0 lead in their first-round series.
After being dominated in all phases of the game on Wednesday night Philadelphia Flyers coach Dave Hakstol decided he was going to come back on Friday with the exact same lineup. The seventh-seeded Wild had the Jets, who had the second best regular-season record in the National Hockey League this year, on their heels and had sucked most of the air out of Bell MTS Place, until the error.
"He's been doing that selectively in the second half of the season, very, very well", Maurice said.
To his last point the Flyers were actually credited with two fewer blocked shots on Friday, but that's really not important - if he thinks it gave him more confidence, so be it. "It would be nice to go there with a split series".
The Winnipeg Jets had some major momentum enter the playoffs and they kept it going with a 3-2 win in game one, which was their first playoff win in franchise history.
"We're going to pull the sweep off. From what we've gone through this year that's something we'd be prepared for". Game 3 is Sunday in Minnesota. It's hard to deny they have rights to it, given that Shane Doan, the final first-round pick of the original Jets franchise, followed the team to Phoenix and played there from 1996 until his retirement a year ago.
Laine's wrist shot beat Devan Dubnyk glove-side to tie the game 2-2.
It also marked the Jets second playoff victory when, to the delight of a raucous sellout crowd, they dumped the Wild 4-1.
Harvey, Irma, Maria and Nate retired as hurricane names
If more than 21 storms form in one season, such as in 2005, the Greek alphabet is used to name the additional storms. Irma caused seven direct deaths in the US and 85 indirect deaths , 80 of which were in Florida, according to the WMO.
Proof of Syria chemical weapons attack
Since Saturday, several thousand rebels and civilians have left Douma for opposition-held territory in the north of Syria . Syria and its ally Russian Federation have both denied involvement amid worldwide outrage over Saturday's incident.
Volkswagen flags potential major management changes
Porsche said in a separate release that any changes at VW would be reflected in its management. The potential restructuring was first reported by German magazine Der Spiegel.
"We've got to find it now", said Mikko Koivu, of the famous hockey family from Turku, Finland. "We felt we had really good regular season experience this year and learned a bunch of things". "We know where the Jets stand, and rightfully so". Small speedsters may be fine all season long, but come springtime guys like Byfuglien can change a game, as his mighty hits and thunderous presence did in Game 2.
But to a man, the Jets believe they can and will play better than they did in Game 1.
Currently, the whiteout street parties are only planned to take place during Jets playoff home games. We just want to play fast, be on the body. "But his game was good". "But we responded well".
The Winnipeg Jets celebrate a goal by Paul Stasny during the third period at Bell MTS Place.
Kadri was tossed from Toronto's Game 1 loss at Boston for boarding Wingels, and Blue Jackets winger Josh Anderson was thrown out of their overtime victory at Washington for a hit from behind that injured Capitals defenseman Michal Kempny. It can never be a culmination of many things that led to an end result. Like other sports, you have to win one in the other team's building. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 23.4 percent of their power play opportunities. There was no score and the Jets had 13-9 edge in shots after the opening period.
A game misconduct will likely suffice for Anderson, but Kadri probably won't be so fortunate and could miss Game 2 on Saturday. We're trying to get there and the other team is not allowing us to get there.
"All the matchups were hurting us [Friday]", Boudreau said.
"Sure, we'd like to work on our curling ability and have it stop before the line but I think if you're in doubt or in those tough situations, you'd rather make a hard play rather than anything soft and questionable", he said.
