Scheifele leads Jets to important playoff win over Wild

Minnesota Wild left wing Marcus Foligno is stopped by Winnipeg Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck with defensive help from Jets' defenseman Tyler Myers in the first period of an NHL hockey game on Sunday

The Wild announced Tuesday star player Zach Parise would be sidelined six to eight weeks with a broken sternum.

Connor Hellebuyck, who had a 30-save shutout, might have had something to say about that but Boudreau was undeterred on Wednesday.

The cross-check to Staal's neck happened in the first period of Winnipeg's 2-0 victory Tuesday night.

"You knew five or 10 minutes into that game that he was ready and feeling good", Jets coach Paul Maurice said.

Scheifele scored with 28 seconds left in the first period, spoiling a fine performance on the other end by Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk, and tacked on an empty-netter with 11 seconds remaining. The injury occurred late in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series against Winnipeg. He played the rest of the game, and even met reporters afterward, but now he's out and watching with Suter, who fractured his right ankle crashing into the boards in an April 2 loss at Dallas.

The NHL Department of Player Safety has had its hands full in the first round of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs, and will have another incident to deal with following Game 4 of the Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets series. "That's a game-changer. That was huge for us".

Says Wheeler, noting Morrissey's ability to erase chances and kick-start offence: "He's got the best stick on the team". "I wasn't even looking when I made the initial move, I would never try to do that to anyone on objective".

Shockingly, no penalty was called on the play. Like I said, trying to make a box out and have position on him.

I think the one-game ban is fair and warranted.

Every time a man went down in the regular season - Jacob Trouba for 27 games, Toby Enstrom for 39, Dmitry Kulikov for 20, Dustin Byfuglien for 13 - someone stepped up and filled in admirably.

The Minnesota Wild have a tough road ahead in their series with the Winnipeg Jets.

Just before the start of Tuesday's game, the 24-year-old learned that he was one of three contenders for the Vézina Trophy, awarded each season to the NHL's top goaltender. Given it's an elimination game and warmer weather is expected, organizers felt compelled to expand the venue again, adding a big-screen TV, and more food vendors and portable toilets. "I approach it, come game time, the same way - go out there, have fun, stay relaxed". "I guess it's just a nice milestone that me and my family will enjoy".

Based on how Dubnyk has played since he joined the Wild and in this series against the Jets, this strategy has certainly suited him. He had a rough Game 3 and the pressure was on him to respond. Despite the severity of the hit, no penalty was called.

Had the Wild been able to score on that 5-on-3, at the very least they probably would have been able to get the game to overtime.

The playoff clichés get thrown around all the time, and so here goes with the next one as it pertains to the Wild/Jets series.

Then Hellebuyck and the Jets defense took over. "We'd look at this as just an injury". He was replaced by Tucker Poolman, a native of Iowa who played in college at North Dakota, on Winnipeg's third blue line pairing with Chiarot.
