These star RBs are NHL Playoffs ready

Isaac Mcdaniel | 14 April, 2018, 14:43

If you thought Minnesota looked overmatched and soft in losing to St. Louis in five games in the opening round last season that was nothing compared to what happened in Winnipeg.

A thrilling third period lifted the Winnipeg Jets to victory in Game 1 of their first round series against the Minnesota Wild.

The Winnipeg Jets have had their way with the Minnesota Wild in five of the last six meetings, and game one was no different, as they had double the shots on goal and Hellebuyck continues to do a wonderful job in net.

To wit, let's take a look at five players who have already wowed us so far in the National Hockey League postseason. The only situation I can see where Ennis gets in is if Eriksson Ek cannot go, otherwise Jordan Greenway stays in the lineup and deservedly so as he is becoming a real force for the Wild up front.

"It tells me that enough is enough", Boudreau said.

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Colin Miller were the most active players in the attacking zone in Game 1, as the pair combined for nine of Vegas' 28 shots on goal.

The Western Conference might be home to the first-round matchup with the hottest team of the 2017-18 Stanley Cup playoffs, and that matchup has nothing to do with the Presidents' Trophy-winning Nashville Predators. Home-ice advantage in the playoffs, you have it for a reason. Minnesota's game one hero, netminder Devan Dubnyk, seemingly picked up where he left off on Wednesday, stopping all 13 pucks he faced in the first period. That made the Wild 1-for-4 on power plays.

Paul Stastny, Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine scored in the third period to propel the Winnipeg Jets to a 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Friday. Mark Scheifele's health could be worrisome down the road, but Winnipeg simply isn't lacking for firepower otherwise, scoring more than anyone except the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs.

He whiffed on two long distance Patric Hornqvist shots that rang off the goal post to his left, and even on bad angle shots he seemed to be fighting the puck a little bit.

Hellebuyck needed only 16 saves. "To me, whoever plays the best, and has the best game plan going in, and gets the better goaltending, is going to win".

Wild forward Mikko Koivu tracked down the puck in the Jets zone and after one attempt at a shot, skated behind the net.

On Friday, Byfuglien's back-to-back hits on Granlund and Koivu five minutes into the second period got the crowd into it and the Jets soon broke the 0-0 tie on a Tyler Myers goal. They were aggressive all over the ice. Laine fired in his second goal of the series from the right circle at 17:58.

Matt Cullen and Zach Parise scored for Minnesota. Defenceman Joe Morrow's was the game-winner - a point shot at 12:47 of the third, along the ice and through the legs of Dubnyk. When asked if Economic Development Winnipeg might also host parties when the Jets play away, Schaubroeck said they're not looking at that possibility yet but nothing is off the table.

To his last point the Flyers were actually credited with two fewer blocked shots on Friday, but that's really not important - if he thinks it gave him more confidence, so be it. Crosby's second goal of the game came at 7:41 of the third period from Guentzel and Justin Schultz to put the Penguins up 6-0 and his third goal came at 10:42 from Dumoulin to put the Penguins up 7-0.

"We stuck up for each other", Wild center Eric Staal said. During the regular season, in his career, he has gone 53-26 with a 2.50 GAA in his home games and 31-18 with a 2.23 GAA against the Central Division, while against the Wild he has gone 5-2 with a 2.52 GAA.

Fans are primed for these playoffs. Rookie Jack Roslovic, replacing injured veteran Mathieu Perreault, had two assists in the game that ended with a series of fights.
