Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets, 4-13

14 April 2018

The Golden Knights were outshot by their Pacific Division foe, but they have an advantage entering Game 2, with Kings defender Drew Doughty officially suspended for his Game 1 hit on William Carrier.

The Western Conference might be home to the first-round matchup with the hottest team of the 2017-18 Stanley Cup playoffs, and that matchup has nothing to do with the Presidents' Trophy-winning Nashville Predators. "You have to remember that and forget about what happened and go from there".

Wilson was suspended two preseason games for interference and then for the first four regular-season games for boarding but had cleaned up his game since. Minnesota's game one hero, netminder Devan Dubnyk, seemingly picked up where he left off on Wednesday, stopping all 13 pucks he faced in the first period.

But, really, Washington could have been more efficient with him if it wanted to.

"They give you that extra boost in your legs when you need them". They were standing up on us and every time we got it in, we threw a guy on an island with one forechecker.

In fact, Guentzel's goal and three apples marked a new career-high in playoff points in his career, with four. "That is key for me and allows me to stay calm and confident as well".

Harvey, Maria and others retired as hurricane names
You won't be seeing Harvey, Irma, Maria or Nate as names for hurricanes or tropical storms anytime soon. The storm stalled there for four days, causing catastrophic flooding in parts of southeastern Texas.

However, the Wild's aggressive nature will backfire and lead to a few power-play opportunities for the home side.

But early on it still looked like he was off of his game. At that point it seemed like it was only a matter of time until he let one in and the dam would once again burst.

Minnesota will be going with the same lineup it used in its Game 1 loss, when it got goals from Matt Cullen and Zach Parise. Minnesota, meanwhile, are in quite a different position, having long accomplished the goal of reaching the Cup hunt but always failing to advance. Instead, Elliott calmly snagged Crosby's backhand out of the air and kept the Penguins off the board.

"I was trying to do too much nearly", he said. We just want to play fast, be on the body. I got another chance and I tried to wrap it around, and he got me there. "I'm definitely going to be looking at the replays because the crowd went nuts".

Shots on goal in the final two periods were 31-8 Jets.

The Jets committed their own fair share of mistakes in game one and most notably was their lackadaisical puck control in their own zone.

Mohamed Salah set to face AS Roma in the Champions League semifinals
The game is a repeat of 1984 European Cup final, when Liverpool won on penalties to secure their fourth title. Salah was also asked whether Liverpool can win the Champions League, to which he responded: "We can".

"It makes me smile, I guess", he said. "I think it was just about a response. Very unique. ... Sometimes he might give up a chance here and there but he creates more chances than he gives up so I think in that sense as a forward, playing with him is nice".

The Caps may have dropped Game 1, but if Kuznetsov can keep this level of play going, they'll have plenty more opportunities to even out this series. "We played a good team game and we stuck through it all 60".

But it wasn't just Game 1 that had to cause some concern for Flyers fans. Now, coming into this one, we've had a great season and there's more expectation. Wilson blamed himself for costing Washington Game 1 by taking a bad penalty at a critical moment.

"It's not about proving anything", said Elliott.

"I get nervous once a year, and whether I'm playing or not, it's this time of the year because it's playoff time", Walz said. "That is what it's all about it".

It's mostly been tracked by the Kyle Connor-Mark Scheifele-Blake Wheeler line, so perhaps Boudreau will try to steer clear of that head-to-head battle in Game 3.

Benches clear at Fenway Park after hard slide from Yankees' Tyler Austin
Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens and Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez infamously fought during the 2003 AL Championship Series. Thus ensued the following scenes. "I think he was going in hard, and it was a bunt", Holt said after the game, via ESPN .

The Wild was an above average offensive team this year as they ranked 11th in the league in scoring at 3.05 gpg, while also ranking 26th in shots taken (30.2 spg) and 18th in power play conversions, converting on 20.4% of their chances.
