Jets defenceman Morrissey suspended one game for hit on Wild's Staal

Jets defenceman Morrissey suspended one game for hit on Wild's Staal”

Winnipeg would go on to kill off Minnesota's man advantage before Scheifele connected with the game's first goal with 28 seconds left in the period to put the Jets ahead 1-0.

Winnipeg scored first-period goals in both road games in the series after neither team posted a goal in the opening period of the first two games.

Minnesota take on Winnipeg on Tuesday in game four of the Western Conference quarter-finals.

"We continue to tweak as we've done every single game.and we're continually looking at ways to improve".

"If something goes bad against them, they forget about it and they move on and they worry about the next shot, next save, and have that right mind-set and mentality". Historically speaking, teams up 3-1 in a best-of-seven series advance to the next round 90.5 per cent of the time, according to pro-sports probability site whowins.com. The Jets can clinch their first playoff-series victory in franchise history with one more win, possibly Friday night at Bell MTS Place in downtown Winnipeg in Game 5.

Wild winger Nino Niederreiter was busting off the wing for a partial breakaway that would've tied the game, but Morrissey zipped back and picked off the puck with a stick check that erased arguably the Wild's best shot at tying the game. We can throw ourselves on the ice and kick and scream and threaten to hold our breath until we pass out because no penalty was called, but Morrissey's dirty play doesn't change the fact Minnesota failed to score a single goal Tuesday or that it has a total of three goals in its three losses in this series.

Bruce Boudreau should not have made such a big deal of the non-call either, as he is a veteran coach in this league and should know better than to lose focus on the task at hand.

Staal said a referee came up to him later in the game to apologize for the missed-call, though Staal said it served as little consolation.

"We've said all along that this street party has exceeded our expectations". "Everyone saw it. I don't know how no one with stripes saw it, but that's besides itself". Maurice even called it a "missed call". However, I think the Rockets are just too tough and will win the series in five games. I'm in the middle of the game.

In addition to a couple of hits that got game misconducts, the NHL Player Safety Department has already handed down two suspensions, one for the Kings' Drew Doughty for a cross-check to the head, and three games for Toronto's Nazem Kadri after he laid out Boston's Tommy Wingels. "And we've got ones we wanted last game that didn't happen".

Jets coach Paul Maurice was upset by a collision initiated by Marcus Foligno with defenseman Tyler Myers that knocked his former Buffalo teammate to the ice in the second period and out for the remainder of Game 3 with an apparent injury to his leg. I love it. It's part of the game, but that wasn't a good play.
