second, to three in the final stanza.

"We're going to pull the sweep off". Can the Avalanche do what few teams have done this season - win at noisy Bridgestone Arena?

Boudreau did say that Tyler Ennis may get back into the lineup tonight. I think it's not going to affect our game even though we are going to be down at some point, that's going to happen in the playoffs.

The Jets continued to attack into the third and finally scored a second goal at the 6:42 mark when Patrick Laine, the 19-year-old Finnish sensation, got the puck from the back of the Wild net to Byfuglien - a defenceman, remember - and Byfuglien slipped the puck out to Paul Stastny, who flicked it high over Dubnyk's glove.


Myers' chance had been set up by young Jack Roslovic, dressed on an emergency basis to take the place of injured Mathieu Perreault.

"I saw that Parise was trying to block (Dubnyk's) blocker side and I just tried to shoot past his leg and I think I hit a pretty good spot", said Laine. Now going back to Minnesota we expect them to come out and be skating. Furthermore, the Jets are now 4-1 against the Wild this season and have won all three meetings on their home ice. Sidney Crosby was stopped on a breakaway and missed an open net on what would have been a tap in power-play goal late in the second period. It's not a series until you get a hate on for each other and I think that was created toward the end of the game.

"That is one of the things I had to say".

Winnipeg made life easy for goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who was making his first playoff start. The Wild have allowed 3.41 gpg on the road for the year, but Devan Dubnyk has a 2.61 GAA in his career in the postseason and a decent 2.75 GAA in his career against the Jets. Game 3 is Sunday in Minnesota. He deked our player, we didn't hold the middle, and he got to come right down Main Street. "We got to figure out a way to get some offensive zone time". "The fans are on the edge of their seats, they are cheering the whole time". But then you have to go through that process of what's it like when you give up a lead.

Winnipeg got its first power play five minutes into the second period when center Mark Scheifele was tripped by Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin, but it wasn't their shots with the man advantage that sparked the crowd.


Joel Eriksson Ek was noticeably absent from practice yesterday, and hoping that it was just a precautionary measure after the huge hit he took from Dustin Byfuglien in game one. "That's what it means", Hendricks said Wednesday as his team prepared for Wednesday's opening-round playoff series against the Minnesota Wild.

Though Jared Spurgeon is still considered a game-time decision, it looks as if the valuable Wild defenseman is going to suit up for Game 1.

"On the first power play I think I had a lot of shots", said Laine, who led the National Hockey League with 20 power-play goals.

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.
