Winnipeg Jets fans celebrate Joe Morrow's game-winning goal against the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday

Alex Killorn scored twice during a four-goal second period, helping the top seed in the Eastern Conference beat the Devils 5-3 in Game 2 of the best-of-seven series. Game 3 is set for Sunday at Xcel Energy Center. Patrik Laine was pretending to play the violin to the Wild bench as the seconds wound down on Friday night's clock, and that was an accurate depiction of Minnesota's start to the playoffs without Ryan Suter. "It's a hockey state for sure".

Overall, nine of the 11 players are searching for their first Stanley Cup.

"We have to take care of business at home". The Golden Knights have their work cut out for them tonight, as the Kings try to avoid going home down 2-0.Vegas jumps ahead of LA in first period with PP goalThe Los Angeles Kings hadn't given up a power play goal to the Golden Knights all year...

Acquired from the St. Louis Blues before the trade deadline, Stastny is competing in his fifth career playoff series against the Wild.

Another attempt to depart for Minnesota will be made Sunday morning.

More than 13 inches of snow had fallen on Minneapolis-St.

Sunday's game is slightly in jeopardy, as the Jets weren't able to fly into the Twin Cities on Saturday because of the snowstorm. When the second period ended, Winnipeg had outshot the Wild 27-14 and led 28-18 in hits.

If they were doing that, they'd say something like, "Comey was right when he criticized Clinton, but he's wrong about Trump". But it was the Cheney-Addington showdown that established Comey's independence in the minds of many in Washington, D.C.

"Going into the one in 2015", said Jets centre Adam Lowry, "we were scratching and clawing just to get into the playoffs". It's a free couple wins, ' " Parise said. We know the crowd is going to be very good. Keep on scrolling for Friday night's schedule, game-by-game updates and odds/predictions for the entire postseason. Rookie Jack Roslovic, replacing injured veteran Mathieu Perreault, had two assists in the game that ended with a series of fights. The Jets also cranked up their physical play Friday, outhitting the visitors 38-23.

Jets defenceman Tyler Myers had a goal in the second period and also picked up an assist.

This was different. They now had a win, their first, in the National Hockey League postseason.

"They're coming in with confidence and that's all you can ask from the young guys", Myers said. We have educated guesses and predictions, but all of that flies out the window once the puck is dropped.

As far as the Wild are concerned, Game 3 is a must win if they want to get back into the best-of-seven series. "You know the time of year you're playing, but you're still just playing that same game".

This is a more resilient Wild team than teams we have seen in the past, and they don't worry about what the so called experts are saying, they pull together and play they games. But Myers knows how quickly momentum can shift. We have had moments all season where we've needed to respond at certain points in the regular season, so it's no different (on Sunday).
