Jets Walking Wounded Heading Into Afternoon Clash With Wild

Chris Stewart scored two goals and Charlie Coyle and Mikael Granlund also scored for the Wild. Devan Dubnyk gave up all five goals and has now won just five of his last 14 decisions.

"Hey, listen, we stunk in the first", he said. "We better come back in the second". You make it sound like we're good. "That's all. I'm done".

The Wild have dropped eight of their last ten games and have watched the Chicago Blackhawks move ahead in the Western Conference standings.

Andrew Copp and Adam Lowry scored on Winnipeg's first and third shots, respectively. Connor Hellebuyck was pulled after allowing four goals on 35 shots.

Hutchinson made a spectacular save with only seconds remaining in regulation to secure the win.

John Elway Offers Opinion To Senate On Neil Gorsuch's SCOTUS Nomination
"I look forward to having Neil Gorsuch, one of our own from the great state of Colorado, as the next Supreme Court Justice". It's unclear whether Republicans will have those votes, meaning Democrats have the ability to block the nomination.

"I didn't see the puck", Dubnyk said of Morrissey's victor. This is going to be an exciting game between two desperate teams and while Philly may be closer to the playoffs I think the Jets are the better team and are at home. The Wild fell behind 4-0 and were able to tie the game at four in the second period. Mathieu Perreault and Blake Wheeler each had a pair of assists, with Wheeler getting to 500 career points.

In 13 National Hockey League seasons Staal has 349 goals and 835 points, including 24 goals and 54 points in 71 games with the Wild in 2016-17.

"You just can't take your foot off the gas against teams like that", Wheeler said.

Staal, 32, hit the milestone on Sunday in Winnipeg, held off the score sheet in a 5-4 loss to the Jets, in his first season with the Minnesota Wild. Defencemen Ben Chiarot and Dustin Byfuglien also found the back of the net. Tough under the circumstances the way we're playing here the last little bit, but in the overall grand scheme it's a special moment for sure.

"You feel blessed to have the opportunities I've been given".
