Wild let third-period lead slip away 3-2 loss to Jets to open playoff series
Minnesota has trailed a series 2-0 in five of those six playoff seasons, including a year ago when it lost the first two at home and fell to St. Louis in five games.
"Going into the one in 2015", said Jets centre Adam Lowry, "we were scratching and clawing just to get into the playoffs". The goal - Myers' first of the playoffs - brought the Winnipeg crowd to its collective feet, and remained the difference in the game - for the foreseeable future.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the team that wins the first two games at home in a best-of-seven series goes on to win the series 88.7 per cent of the time.
The Wild announced that the pre-game party for Sunday's game has been cancelled. "We just want to play fast".
Myers got the puck at the point in the Wild zone, made some moves to get around forward Jason Zucker and sent a sharp-angled shot past Dubnyk on the blocker side at 8:41 of the second period for the 1-0 lead. Past year he managed a.925 save percentage against the St. Louis Blues and this time around he's kept them in both games. They are loud, they cheer and every time we score the first goal of the game they just don't sit down. The first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs continues Friday with a couple of underdogs trying to scrap for new life in their rivalry series to start the postseason. "The guys played so well in front of me, there's no fault". If we do that, we're going to be fine.
Winnipeg Jets' Kyle Connor (81) tries to get a shot on Boston Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin (35) during overtime in an NHL hockey game Tuesday, March 27, 2018, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. While Sidney Crosby, two days removed from a hat trick, came up short despite a breakaway shot and two opportunities right next to the net, five different Flyers lit the lamp, first forcing Matt Murray off the ice with 4:28 still left in the game and putting their stagnant Game 1 outing in the rear-view mirror. "It is what it is".
"For the most part we are going to do what we did all season out there, take the pressure off our players, just go out there, play and see what happens", said Gallant, who added the Golden Knights were close to having everyone available for the playoffs, in a phone interview with the Journal Pioneer during the final weekend of the regular season.
But the team's success at home this season is a good place to start when looking for a rallying cry.
"We feel real good", said Gallant, a strong supporter of the Summerside Boys and Girls Club. Lightning RW Ryan Callahan left the game late in the second period with an upper body injury and did not return. Scoring a goal. That would be ideal. Kucherov, Tampa Bay's leading scorer this season, has 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) in 47 career playoff games.
