WINNIPEG-The Winnipeg Jets got a boost from their frenzied fans over their two victories at home over Minnesota.

That's' how the Tampa Bay Lightning view a 2-0 series lead over the New Jersey Devils.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Paul Stastny, Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine scored in the third period and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Minnesota Wild to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference first-round series.

Just before 6 p.m., the Jets tweeted they were flying back to Winnipeg and will attempt to return to the Twin Cities Sunday. "It's a hockey state for sure".

"I thought Cory came in and played really well", Hynes said. I told the guys here I think home playoff games are fun, but I think road playoff games are way better, especially when you're facing a crowd like that. "That said, we knew we had to improve our depth, and I think ultimately the big club has been rewarded for it this season".

For all of the things that went for the Flyers on Friday they may need more efforts like this from Elliott if they are going to win this series.

They actually flew out on Saturday afternoon and were unable to land in the Twin Cities because of the harsh snow storm.

Midway through the game, former Calder Trophy victor, defenceman Tyler Myers walked around Minny's Jason Zucker, before shifting his way directly to the Wild cage, and burying a quick snapshot past the near-unbeatable Devan Dubnyk.

Bayern wins record-extending 6th straight Bundesliga title
Augsburg started at pace, closing down any space for the visitors, and the pressure paid off in the 18th minute with an own-goal. Bayern had been in complete control at the top even before the turn of the year and have gone on to win the title at a canter.

"We know it's not by no means, 'Oh we're at home".

"We're comfortable playing here, " Zach Parise said. "(The Jets) are playing really well and we're going to have to play much better".

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.

Dubnyk made 37 saves in the loss, while Connor Hellebuyck stopped 18 of the 20 shots he faced for the Jets. The team's only post-season appearance since relocating to Winnipeg from Atlanta in 2011 was a sweep at the hands of Anaheim in 2015.

“We had a meeting, me, him and Parros, and went over videos and just what they were looking at when he was being considered for suspensions and fines and other examples throughout the league, ” Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said. Winnipeg had full control over the entire game and held the Wild to three shots in the third period.

Second-year defenceman Josh Morrissey admitted there are nerves, but mostly before the puck drops.

“The bottom line is, you always have to be disciplined at all times and emotions are a part of the game, but its got to be controlled, ” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. Although once again battling a slow start and a red-hot opposing netminder, the Jets manhandled the visiting Wild, crushing the Americans in almost every facet of the game, finished atop Minnesota in the shot department 44-17, and ultimately, with a 4-1 victory. But Myers knows how quickly momentum can shift.
