The Winnipeg Whiteout - that tradition which has Jets fans celebrating the region's often inclement winter weather by wearing white to playoff games - seemed like a good idea, especially as raucous home crowds helped spur the Jets to a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven first round playoff series with the Minnesota Wild.

The victory gave the Jets a 2-0 lead in the first round of their NHL Western Conference best-of-seven playoff series. The old Jets, who are now the Coyotes, won plenty, but all the playoff history this Winnipeg organization had since moving from Atlanta to Manitoba in 2011 was a four-game sweep at the hands of the Ducks in 2015.

Over Minnesota's last ten games, six of them have been decided by two or more goals (the team is 4-2 in those games).

Dubnyk made 37 saves in the loss, while Connor Hellebuyck stopped 18 of the 20 shots he faced for the Jets.

Winnipeg is averaging 3.4 goals per game across its five-game win streak.

Game 3 is Sunday in Philadelphia. Puckdrop is set for 6:00 P.M. central time on Sunday, while Tuesday's game will get underway at 7:00 P.M. central, also found on Sportsnet. "We're really only focused on home games at this point", the spokesman said.

The Devils have played well in spurts, overcoming slow starts to keep both games interesting. "But his game was good". "It's this kind of sneaky, underlying underdog confidence that I think will carry us", defenseman Matt Dumba said. "We've been that way all year", Little said. We have to win one game. They were wired right from the start.

"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.

Cullen, the former Moorhead and St. Cloud State star, scored his 19th-career playoff goal in his 124th-career playoff game just 1:46 into the third period. "I'm not going to speculate on whether we're going to use him or not use him". On the other hand, its penalty kill unit is ranked 13th overall and it's successfully killed off 81.0 percent of all opponent power plays. I think we needed to just come out and have that intensity that we have had in the past two-to-three weeks of the season just to make it here.

Winnipeg got its first power play five minutes into the second when Jets centre Mark Scheifele was tripped by Wild defenceman Jonas Brodin, but it wasn't their shots with the man advantage that sparked the crowd. "They protected home ice and now we have to try to go back and do the same in our building".

Winnipeg lost forward Mathieu Perreault in the third period to an upper-body injury.

Dubnyk, who entered the postseason with a 7-14 record and.903 career playoff save percentage, has performed exactly how the Wild hoped he would during the opening two road games.
