The Minnesota Wild quite literally will not go down without a fight.

Joe Morrow scored with 7:13 remaining to give the Winnipeg Jets a 3-2 victory against the Minnesota Wild in Game 1 of the Western Conference first-round playoff opener on Wednesday night at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba. "Nothing is going to change for us".

"People are so connected now with teams, with each other, whether it's negative or positive people are always talking about their sports teams", he said. I think the under is the smartest play here and it's hit in three of the last four meetings this season.

The Jets got an injection of energy with rookie Jack Roslovic making his playoff debut in place of Mathieu Perreault, who suffered an upper-body injury in Game 1.

Jets defenceman Tyler Myers had a goal in the second period and also picked up an assist. When he took over the league's player safety department last September, he said he meant to crack down on "non-hockey plays" that have nothing to do with affecting the course of the game. "We're going to do our best to make this a series and compete".

I have found it very interesting listening to the recaps and dialogue following the Wild's 3-2 loss in game one.

Zach Parise had the lone goal for Minnesota on a power play with 45 seconds left. "We gotta figure out a way to get some offensive zone time and I feel like we've been playing on three quarters of the rink for two games now".

"I would say so, everybody, including coaching staff, players, management", reaffirmed Gallant, who is the favourite to win the Jack Adams Award as National Hockey League coach of the year.

Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk made 39 saves. Game 3 is Sunday in Minnesota. "To be truthful, it's an expansion team, but the expansion rules were real good to us, and we got a lot of good hockey players. I still think I can come away and have a better game". "When you're the favorite, everybody expects you to be ideal, and everybody expects you to win in four (games)". Myers had a busy first two periods because he was in the penalty box twice, once in the first period and once in the second. He appeared to have no clue where the puck was when Hornqvist's shot zipped by his left pad only to smack off the post in the first period.

The Wild's offense wasn't that stagnant to start Friday, jumping out to a 5-0 edge in shots and earning possession time in the Jets' end via a first-period power play.

Some Jets fans in the area are already gearing up for a potential second-round series against the Nashville Predators, essentially treating the Wild series as a warmup. They have now won their last six games in a row and 12 of their last 13 and will look to keep it going tonight.

What happened was another Bruins goal on the ensuing power play that made it 5-1 in the first game between the bitter rivals.

The Wild managed just 37 shots through six periods here, while the Jets have enjoyed back to back 40-shot nights.

Myers was dinged again for roughing forward Charlie Coyle 33 seconds after his goal, but the Jets kept the pressure on with some hustle and hits.

Stastny and Copp scored 1:42 apart in the third, with Byfuglien sending a backhand to the front of the net that Statsny slapped in at 7:42.

Copp made it 3-0 at 9:24 when he redirected in Bryan Little's shot.
