The Jets have a 2-0 lead in the series after taking game two by a score of 4-1.

On Wednesday, things got underway with the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins rolling all over the Philadelphia Flyers, the Vegas Golden Knights shutting out the Los Angeles Kings and the Minnesota Wild falling at the young hands of the Winnipeg Jets.

Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien threw two big hits nine seconds apart, the first on Wild forward Mikael Granlund in front of the Winnipeg bench, the second a slam that rocked Koivu into the boards behind Hellebuyck. "It's a loud building".

"Unfortunately, I feel like we always find ourselves down 0-2", Zach Parise lamented.

Here, we have everything you need to follow along. "Our game won't change".

"I thought they were physical the whole game". That line forces the opposition to game plan a little differently for the Wild, but for some reason Boudreau likes to have a balanced attack, or believes that is the best option for them to be successful.

The Jets continue to explore uncharted territory.

Winnipeg was a very solid offensive team this year as they ranked 2nd in the league in scoring at 3.33 gpg, while also ranking 14th in shots taken (32.2 spg) and 5th in power play conversions, converting on 23.4% of their chances. Now they've got two playoff wins and will look for their first-ever road victory on the way to their inaugural series win.

Nobody is sitting back and enjoying the 2-0 lead, despite what the historical trends indicate.

The teams had a scoreless first period for the second game in a row. All it takes is looking at last season's matchup with the St. Louis Blues to see how falling into an 0-3 hole can spell disaster.

"Well the message is simple: You've got to win four (games)", Boudreau said. "So we're going to have to be aware of that".

The Jets won the regular-season series 3-1. Joe Morrow scored the winning goal in Game 1 and Tyler Myers opened the scoring in Game 2 on a great individual effort. He stopped 18 of 20 shots two nights earlier.

Winnipeg got its first power play five minutes into the second period when center Mark Scheifele was tripped by Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin, but it wasn't their shots with the man advantage that sparked the crowd. "We just want to play fast". "Our forwards have been extremely hard in not giving them any clean ice to make passes on breakouts and when they're skating and really in the right position and all over the puck, it makes it easier for our D to stay up and have a good gap as well". They do have some guys there that have a lot of skill and can be risky but if you limit their time and space it allows our D to be all over them. "We know that we can play a lot better".
