Jets arrive for Game 3 against Wild after blizzard-related delays
Apr 16, 2018, 09:20
While the outdoor pre-game party outside Xcel Energy Centre was cancelled, Sunday's Game 3 matchup betweeen the Wild and Jets will be played as scheduled.
Overall, the Wild finished 2-for-3 on the power play; the Jets went 1-for-5. "We're going to come home in front of our fans and be ready to play Game 3". "We've got to play our absolute best". "I thought, 'OK. This is going to work'". "It's the playoffs. There's going to be battles, there's going to be swings of momentum, but the big thing for me is who won the game". Like in the closing seconds of the second period Crosby was standing by himself alongside a wide open net and inexplicably fired it through the other side of the crease, completing missing a chance to get the Penguins on the board.
"We did bend a little bit in the third but didn't break, so it's a good feeling to be up 2-0", Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman said. Whether you get beat bad or whatever, you still have to win one and it doesn't matter if it's now, the fifth, or the seventh. "That's the bottom line".
It came courtesy of Staal netting his first goal of the postseason, Greenway scoring the first National Hockey League goal, and Foligno getting rewarded for his play with a fortuitous bounce in front.
The Devils have played well in spurts, overcoming slow starts to keep both games interesting. "But his game was good". "It's a long series. They stuck with it, and we just weren't able to get to our speed we needed".
Devils coach John Hynes echoed that sentiment.
It took a lot of faith and confidence in his team to not make any changes after such an emphatic loss, especially in the playoffs.
