The road team has won the first five games of this series, and the Jets will hope that trend continues.
Winnipeg Jets forwards Blake Wheeler, Patrik Laine and Mark Scheifele said they will not be going to the World Championship in May despite being eliminated over the weekend at the hands of the St. Louis Blues.
Jaden Schwartz had a hat trick as the St. Louis Blues beat Winnipeg 3-2 on Saturday to take their first-round series in six games.
The Jets join the Flames as the second Canadian team ousted from the post-season after Calgary fell in five games to the Colorado Avalanche on Friday. St. Louis will next face the victor of the Dallas-Nashville series, which the Stars lead 3-2. Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo said. It was also a far cry from where the Blues were at the start of the third period in Game 5, when they trailed 2-0 and were 20 minutes away from falling behind 3-2. "I think every game was fairly close this series but tonight, it just felt like they were better than us".
Several players talked about the experience last season, when the Jets lost Game 6 of the Nashville series on home ice, then went into enemy territory and came up big with a Game 7 victory to send them to the Western Conference final. It was a rare win at home, as it's the first time this series the home team has won. "So this group should be motivated and we're going to come out ready to go", said Connor, who scored the overtime victor in Game 4. Meanwhile, his Jets counterpart Connor Hellebuyck had quite a few moments to forget.
Hellebuyck had to be solid to keep the Blues at bay, coming up big on a breakaway in the final two minutes by Robby Fabbri.Читайте также: Easter Sunday Blasts in Sri Lanka Kill at Least 30
Tyler Bozak fed Schwartz from behind the net on a power play in the second, giving St. Louis a 2-0 lead 12:36 into the period.
"Lucky pinballs", Hellebuyck said of the Blues' go-ahead goal. Tough to eat that one, but I thought we were the better team. "The puck just bounced and ended up right on their tape". We fought back at the end of that game, tried our best.
"Things are more fun when you're winning and we've been enjoying it", Binnington said.
"It's a do-or-die situation, so you shouldn't need anything else to get you going".
Schwartz completed the Blues' first postseason hat trick since Vladimir Tarasenko had one against Minnesota on April 18, 2015 in the third period.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
