Subban. “We’re […]

GAME 3 Minnesota Wild 6, Winnipeg Jets 2: Wild gets one back as series shifts to Minnesota

Minnesota trail series 2-1 The Minnesota Wild have everything working for them in a gigantic response on home ice.

One of the scariest parts of the Jets’ attack is their power play. Matt Dumba got called for slashing Blake Wheeler just 43 second into the game. Not ideal when there are so many weapons to choose from for Winnipeg. The penalty kill of the team...
