Jets on cruise control with commanding series lead

Minnesota Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau stood in that unenviable, impossible spot behind the podium after a 4-1 loss in Winnipeg, trying to explain a game that saw his team's shot totals descend from nine in the first period, to five in the second, to three in the final stanza.

"Going into the one in 2015", said Jets centre Adam Lowry, "we were scratching and clawing just to get into the playoffs".

"People are so connected now with teams, with each other, whether it's negative or positive people are always talking about their sports teams", he said.

"Listen, we're trying", Boudreau said, knowing that his fragile team couldn't take another punch. We have to take care of business at home. It was a little karma for Koivu, who is the player who knocked Mathieu Perreault out of Game 1, an injury that forced the Jets winger to miss Game 2 as well.

"For us, we've played a very fast game", Jets defenceman Josh Morrissey said.

"That's the best situation for us".

The accusation came from Alexander Yakovenko, as he was updating the media on the developments in the Salisbury poisoning case. The Skripals were targeted by a nerve agent attack that left both of them critically ill for weeks.

Here's how to watch Wild vs. Jets Game 2 online. It came less than a minute after Minnesota took a 2-1 lead as Matt Cullen and Zach Parise both scored inside the opening four minutes of the third period.

Scheifele converted on a power play with 2:23 remaining in the second period.

San Jose Sharks at Anaheim Ducks (10:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN360, TVAS, PRIME, NBCSCA) - The Sharks got two goals from Evander Kane in his playoff debut and 25 saves by Martin Jones in their 3-0 win in Game 1.

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

Facing only that one-goal deficit, thanks to how well Dubnyk had played, the Wild had no shots on Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck for the first 15 minutes of the third and ended up with only three.

Less than two minutes later, Andrew Copp redirected another puck past a severely overworked Devan Dubnyk. Game 3 is Sunday in Minnesota. "They're a good home team, too, so we've got to be able to play our best game the next couple of games to get a couple of wins", said Laine. "We got to figure out a way to get some offensive zone time". When things start to come undone offensively is when they fall into the over passing game. "When you're the favorite, everybody expects you to be ideal, and everybody expects you to win in four (games)". That included an early power-play opportunity.

Dubnyk didn't have to stop a Winnipeg shot until seven minutes had passed. After a fairly even and scoreless first period, the Jets left the Wild in their dust. When they play that game, as they did for much of the regular season while earning 114 points, the Jets are tough to handle.

Then, big-bodied defenseman Dustin Byfuglien decided he wanted to set the tone, laying bone-crushing hit after bone-crushing hit in the second period, most notably crunching Mikko Koivu along the back boards midway through the frame. "We have a lot of pride in that room".

The Wild are 1-6 in their last seven conference quarterfinal games.

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.

Stastny and Copp scored 1:42 apart, with Byfuglien sending a backhand to the front of the net that Statsny slapped in at 7:42. Roslovic skated on a line with Copp and Bryan Little and chipped in two assists. Laine fired in his second goal of the series from the right circle at 17:58.
