The Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets meet Friday in game two of the NHL Western Conference First Round Playoffs at the Bell MTS Place. "We know where the Jets stand, and rightfully so". It looked likely that it would be the (Minnesota) Wild.

"It's going to be interesting to see", Boudreau said.

"It's gonna be big", Eric Staal said.

Like all those making the trip south for the game, Smith will be battling some severe road and weather conditions along the way. The area has been experiencing heavy snowfall and high winds.

The warning extends from the metro to much of southwestern Minnesota.

The pair are planning to come back Monday, providing the blizzard lets up. I'm hoping there's a pretty large contingent of us. Dumba stayed home from practice Saturday under orders from the coach, who said he will be ready on Sunday. They are loud, they cheer and every time we score the first goal of the game they just don't sit down. It just seems like a different feeling this year.

Smith and his family won't be the only ones in St. Paul repping Jets gear, according to James Morton of Stonewall, who managed to get a ticket through a business contact. Patrik Laine netted over 40 goals this season for the Jets - but can he translate that to the playoffs?

This is the first playoff series for 11 players on the Jets' roster. Light snow continued to fall Sunday morning.

"It's going to be tough down there, but my prediction is they're going to win it in (overtime). And I think we work hard to fix those things".

Costs for the event are unknown at the moment, but True North is funding the entertainment portion.

"At this point we're not looking at doing anything for the away games, at least not on our end". "I don't think we played as well as we can".

"The only thing I can compare it to is when I was in Montreal in the playoffs four or five years ago, when we had those good runs for a couple of years when I was an assistant coach".

"That was the time we said, 'We have a good hockey team here, '" said Gallant, who was hired by the Golden Knights on April 13, 2017.

Val Parker, and her husband Rob, spent Saturday night in Fargo before deciding whether to continue to Minneapolis for Game 3.

After last night's big win, the Jets can take confidence in knowing they are good enough to go far in the postseason.

Only lost three games in a row once during regular season during a stretch from February 26 to March 2.

Ovechkin is the youngest player on this list and has taken lots of scrutiny over his career for not winning a Stanley Cup. "I think it was just about a response. This whole city is abuzz", Parker said.

With the second-best team in the league this season, Jets fans have reason to be excited.

Rob Parker said the drive to Fargo was fine and their plan was always to spend Saturday night there. They were out-shot 14-5 in the second period and 16-3 in the third period.

"Everything has been flawless, and we obviously hope the playoffs go as well as the regular season".

Winnipeg's offensive skaters attempted 32.5 shots per game in the regular season, resulting in 3.4 goals per outing (ranked second overall in the NHL).
