Jets Look To Extend Series Lead Over Golden Knights

AP Images

This is a big issue for the Knights and tonight I expect they do something about it. This makes the first period and the first goal extremely vital, as it has proven to be through the first two games. The Jets almost gave up more odd-man rushes than they would have liked and Vegas will want to find a way to exploit that possibility for game two. Washington leads that series 2-0. It didn't feel like playing against Nashville. "We just couldn't get any momentum going".

While the Jets lost for the third time in the past four home games after ripping off a 13-game winning streak at MTS Place that dates back to March 1, they have plenty of reasons to be feeling good about the way they've played on the road in the post-season.

After losing the series opener, Marchessault told reporters the team faced a must-win game.

"You put the losses behind you as quick as you can", he said.

"After we win or lose, the next day we know it's a new day and we are ready to recharge the batteries". Nor are the Jets San Jose, a solid team but one missing spiritual leader Joe Thornton and also with depth challenges when compared to Winnipeg and Nashville. Marchessault added his second goal of the game in the third period to help secure the win for Vegas. "It didn't hold but it didn't cost us, but certainly there's a 10 minute block there we're not going to like very much tomorrow". (The Capitals tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs, only a year after being the best team in the National Hockey League and facing them in a 1 vs 8 matchup). "The one that cost us I think is that we pushed too early, got out of our routes too early". "I liked our first 10 minutes".

"We were chasing the game again". They came out hard. We didn't do a whole lot of clean things with the puck, but they were good. "They didn't make it easy".

Winnipeg was in Fleury's kitchen all night but as it didn't it the 2nd Round, it didn't matter in Game 2. It was one of the biggest improvements of 2017-18 after impatience in those areas were its Achilles' heel last season, when it missed the playoffs.

"There was about 57 minutes of that game that was pretty good for us", Wheeler said.




If Jets fans are honest and take away the hype and excitement that is permeating everything in the city they will realize this series could turn into a dog fight quickly. "That part, I think, was true of the whole game, and we want to be better there".

The Jets used the exact same lineup as in game one.

"I don't think anybody in here minded our start". That means Haula and Tuch still haven't beaten their former team, although it's safe to say they're getting the last laugh.

It looked like they were going to pick up where they left off.

The Jets had more shots on goal in Game 2 but fewer clean looks against goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who made 30 saves after making 22 in Game 1. He had 70 points in the regular season and scored his fourth goal of the playoffs in Game 1.

"When you start letting it snowball, that's when it gets more challenging". "So they did a better job of kind of limiting our odd-man rushes and quality chances". After a grueling seven game series, that turned out to be correct.

So although moving on is essential, the momentum lesson is ongoing for a team that made the playoffs one other time (2015) in the seven seasons since relocating to Winnipeg from Atlanta in 2011.

Good as it is, Winnipeg's hockey team is unable to give itself any breathing room during the playoffs.
