Jets grounded by blizzard, trip for Game 3 delayed

NHL playoffs 2018: Live score, highlights, updates from Jets vs. Wild Game 2

Same players. Same line combinations. Crosby broke in alone just past the game's midway point but Elliott's glove swallowed up the Pittsburgh captain's backhand attempt.

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.

It is nearly never any one particular thing that goes into a win, and on Friday there was a lot that went right for the Flyers that went wrong in the first game.

Meanwhile, the Twins have postponed three games this weekend. With just over two minutes left in the game, young winger Patrik Laine added his second goal of the series.

Winnipeg only got one shot on goal on the power play, but the momentum carried on for Myers' goal that made it 1-0 at 8:41. "It's special to get a start, it's special to get starts in the playoffs and carry a team and try to be the block in the wall behind them".

"We are going home. That is key for me and allows me to stay calm and confident as well".

But early on it still looked like he was off of his game. With the Minnesota net empty and the Wild on a six-on-four man-advantage, Zach Parise redirected a point shot into Winnipege's net, ruining Connor Hellebuyck's bid for his first career playoff shutout.

Laine then scored his second of the playoffs to put the game away at 4-0 with only two minutes remaining when he one-timed a pass from Nikolaj Ehlers.

The Penguins began pressing but Elliott responded. "When we came over the border the guy asked us why we were coming and we told him that we were going to the game and he goes, 'Oh I might have to shred these passports.' I thought that was pretty amusing". "We know that we can play a lot better". "Not even the fighting, just the chirping going on back and forth". Crosby had another chance in the final moments of the second period but when he couldn't convert from the right post, he smashed his stick over the crossbar in frustration.

Dubnyk, who entered the postseason with a 7-14 record and.903 career playoff save percentage, has performed exactly how the Wild hoped he would during the opening two road games.

"We've needed him", Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau said of his team's goalie before Friday's match. "And I think we work hard to fix those things".

But it wasn't just Game 1 that had to cause some concern for Flyers fans.

It didn't take the Flyers almost as long to beat Murray again.

"It's not about proving anything", said Elliott. Game 2 was indeed different from Game 1. "That is what it's all about it".

"They're so used to losing they get a little giddy because they won the game", Cherry said of the Jets.

"We got the win and that's all I care about, especially this time of year,"Hellebuyck said".

If they keep taking penalties and giving up that many shots Elliott is going to have to be the difference in the series. That remains to be seen. That's how Friday night went for Minnesota.
