Quick strike Jets blank Wild to win NHL playoff series

The Jets clinched the first round playoff series with a 5-0 win over the Minnesota Wild.

If there was any doubt before the playoffs, the Winnipeg Jets have quickly proven themselves to be a serious Stanley Cup contender in 2018. "A couple deflections, and you can see that's how a game can kind of run away from you".

Devan Dubnyk - The Wild goaltender was pulled from series-deciding Game Five after allowing four goals on 10 shots in just under 12 minutes; he had a.930 save percentage in the first four games of the series, but finished at.908 after his brief, but eventful, Game Five performance.

The task was made all the more challenging when, after Game Three, the Wild knew they would be without left winger Zach Parise, who suffered a fractured sternum after scoring goals in each of the first three games in the series; that left Minnesota's two highest-priced players on the shelf.

Hellebuyck became the third United States-born goaltender in National Hockey League history to have consecutive shutouts in the playoffs, joining Mike Richter of the New York Rangers (Games 1-2 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the New York Islanders) and Brent Johnson of the St. Louis Blues (Games 2-4 of the 2002 Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Chicago Blackhawks).

"We've shown it all year, that we had to deal with guys banged up the entire season", Myers said.

"I think we have a great system".

Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves for his second shutout of the series, and Mark Scheifele added a goal in the third for the Jets. For us it was more about trying to right the ship and get to our game.

Trouba scored 31 seconds into Friday's game and in a blink of an eye Little, Tanev and Armia scored to make it 4-0. "This is the year and we're all here to celebrate". The old Jets franchise, now the Arizona Coyotes, last advanced to the second round of the playoffs in 1987.
