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

The groans were audible as turbocharged fans plunged faces into hands. Regardless where the game is we're going to have to play much better (on Sunday) than we have in the first two games.

On goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who was pulled after the Wild scored six goals in the first two periods: "Despite the fact he couldn't see through his teammates on a couple of goals, it wasn't Hellebuyck's night, either, and after he had let in six on 22 shots through 40 minutes, Maurice gave him the third period off.Hellebuyck handled a question about his own play the same way he handled some Minnesota shots".

"When we wake up tomorrow, you look back and say: 'OK, which parts of the game did we do well.' And we'll be able to look at a lot of that tape and say we did really well. I still think I can come away and have a better game".

Myers got the puck at the point in the Wild zone, made some moves to get around forward Jason Zucker and sent a sharp-angled shot past Dubnyk on the blocker side at 8:41 of the second period for the 1-0 lead.

The Wild set a franchise postseason record for goals in a home game.

Fluky goals used to doom the Wild in the postseason, piercing their confidence and green-lighting the Blackhawks, Stars and Blues-take your pick-to throttle down and conveniently advance.

Salah Overtakes Messi In Golden Shoe Race
That is the most important thing for us, that we play as a team, as 11 players, and so each goal for me is to help the team. Salah is now five goals ahead of Kane, leaving the Spurs striker with five games to overhaul his Liverpool rival.

"It's overblown", Boudreau said of his opponents' travel issues.

Are the Minnesota Wild back in the series?

The Minnesota Wild lost two tough games on the road to start the series against the Winnipeg Jets.

In addition to Foligno, a fourth-line forward, third-line wing Jordan Greenway scored his first National Hockey League playoff goal.

The middle frame saw Matt Dumba notch his first of the playoffs but Tyler Myers would get the Jets within one just three minutes later with his second of the post-season.

If success is in the journey, not the destination, then the Winnipeg Jets were successful on Sunday night just for getting to Minneapolis. The Jets flew into Minnesota earlier on Sunday after being rerouted because of snow on Saturday.

Dubnyk made a save on a blast from Scheifele, while two of Laine's trademark blasts from the right circle went wide of the net and the other was blocked by Nate Prosser's arm. "He's been playing great".

India lodges protests with Pakistan for inciting Sikh pilgrims
New Delhi has continued to grant visas - even emergency visas -for Pakistanis seeking medical treatment in India. The High Commissioner was thus compelled to return without meeting Indian citizens, it said.

Still, the Wild know they can't rest on their laurels simply because they're at home, especially with the way the Jets have been playing to this point.

Game 4 of the best-of-7 is Tuesday night at the "X" at 7 p.m.

This is still Winnipeg's series to lose. Sustaining it will be their biggest challenge.

"We have a game plan", Byfuglien said.

"The foundation of our game is there's a certain of speed that has to be involved and we didn't skate particularly well [on Sunday] night", Maurice said. "We just have to come out and play like we have all season in this building".

The series now shifts back to Minnesota, where the Wild will need a massive turnaround in order to get back in the series.
