Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets - 4/17/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Winnipeg Jets fans celebrate Joe Morrow's game-winning goal against the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday

They will look to get back on track, but it will not be easy as the Wild are a good home team. Their Saturday flight from Winnipeg was rerouted to Duluth because of the blizzard and, after returning to Winnipeg on Saturday night, the Jets landed in the Twin Cities on Sunday.

The Winnipeg Jets came ready to play in game three. In his career (regular season), he has gone 108-94 with a 2.41 GAA in his home games and 64-63 with a 2.64 GAA against the Central Division, while against the Jets he has gone 8-9 with a 2.75 GAA.

"We'll come out hot in Game 4". Tyler Myers scored for the Jets three minutes later to cut the lead in half.

Paul Maurice, it's your turn.

Foligno was trying to block a Myers pass when his momentum took him into the defenceman.

The Wild devoted most of Saturday to working on a plan to bust through the Jets' suffocating middle-ice scheme instead of just dumping it out.

But on the day after the Wild finally showed some offense, getting their first win of the series by a 6-2 count on Sunday, their coach cautioned that his team's status was still plenty urgent heading into Game 4 down two games to one.

Myers remained down for some time before being helped off. Foligno said he had no ill intent on the play and denied suggestions he punched Myers' knee during the collision. I don't think so. There was no punching motion.

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

The Wild are an impressive 23-9 in their last 32 games on home ice and are 20-7 in their last 27 when their opponent scores two or fewer in their previous game but the Wild have been very inconsistent over the last few weeks and are a disappointing 0-5 in their last five games following a win.

"We're here to play", goalie Devan Dubnyk said, "and we're fully capable of pushing hard".

"So, we have a real clean understanding of what it is we do well and what we need to have happen". They were sloppy and loose, nowhere near as physical and they didn't get playoff goaltending.

Connor Hellebuyck's crease is crowded during Game 3 on Sunday. The start time will be announced once the NHL confirms the start time of the hockey game. But that doesn't mean the 24-year-old Hellebuyck is feeling any pressure. I'm sure a lot of (Jets) fans are saying that.

As for the impact the travel headaches would have on the Jets, as they prepared for Game 3 on foreign ice, both teams scoffed it would have any impact. Stastny said. "You're warned before 'cause of the weather but I've had some planes where no one knows and you sit on the plane for a couple hours".

Byfuglien has also been a presence on the offensive end in both games.

"He's a pretty laid-back guy". Did anyone really think the Jets were going to sweep this series?

The team is planning to fly again to Minneapolis-St.

With AP Photos.Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise scored power-play goals in the first period for the spark Minnesota was missing on the road, and the Wild used a four-goal second to roar back in the first-round playoff series with a 6-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

The Jets didn't make excuses.

To a man, the Jets said before the game that Saturday's ordeal - they tried to fly to the Twin Cities, got diverted to Duluth due to frightful weather, sat on the tarmac for two hours and then flew back home before finally landing in Minneapolis-St.

"The foundation of our game is there's a certain of speed that has to be involved and we didn't skate particularly well [Sunday] night", Maurice said.
