A goal there could have sent the game in a completely different direction.

With the Wild desperately trying to preserve a one-goal lead in the third period of Game 1 against the Winnipeg Jets, it took just two plays in the final minutes to truly feel Ryan Suter's absence on the blue line. It took a couple of periods for the hockey to break out.

Wilson was suspended two preseason games for interference and then for the first four regular-season games for boarding but had cleaned up his game since. Golden Knights earned their 34th win in their 50th contest in the 82-game schedule.

Vegas won by the closest margin of any home team in Game 1, as it eked out a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday. The next Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party won't be confirmed until the outcome of Game 3 or 4 is determined in Minneapolis. Scoring a goal. That would be ideal. Just winning a draw and trying to get a forecheck going, create a little energy...

Instead, ideal appeared to be falling to the Wild. He did it to Joel Eriksson Ek in Game 1. With the Minnesota net empty and the Wild on a six-on-four man-advantage, Zach Parise redirected a point shot into Winnipege's net, ruining Connor Hellebuyck's bid for his first career playoff shutout.

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. "We count on him". The Jets are emerging as a dominant force in the playoffs.

"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. "We don't play our best game every night, but we have a chance to win every night". It was just like the city - happy to be there. Given that it came 48 hours after one of his worst playoff performances he faced a lot of questions about personal pride and wanting to make a statement after the game.

"We've had quite a few players out for quite a while here".

"The bottom line is, you always have to be disciplined at all times and emotions are a part of the game, but it's got to be controlled", Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. "You never know what can happen". What's it like when you get down and you're in the third period. "It can be tough at times", he said.

Jets defenceman Tyler Myers had a goal in the second period and also picked up an assist.

Myers' chance had been set up by young Jack Roslovic, dressed on an emergency basis to take the place of injured Mathieu Perreault.

Dustin Byfuglien was an absolute terror, a reminder of the value of big, physical players when the game shifts into playoff mode. "It's a beast of its own". They were out-shot 14-5 in the second period and 16-3 in the third period. The Jets have a 2-0 lead in the series after taking game two by a score of 4-1. He had a team-high five shots on goal in Game 1 and added three more in Game 2.

Less than two minutes later, Andrew Copp redirected another puck past a severely overworked Devan Dubnyk.

The Roseau, Minn., product had just crunched Wild forward Mikael Granlund along the bench and destroyed Minnesota captain Mikko Koivu behind the net with a shoulder-to-shoulder check in a span of nine seconds.

With two suspensions, two misconduct ejections for boarding that resulted in injuries, plus Capitals winger Tom Wilson's hit to the head that knocked Columbus center Alexander Wennberg out of the game, it has been a rough start to the playoffs - and there have only been eight games played.
