Jets chase Dubnyk, eliminate Wild in Game 5

Minnesota Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau questions a call in the second period against the St. Louis Blues in Game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinals on Saturday

Still, the Wild understand how improbable a comeback would be heading into a must-win Game 5 on Friday night at Bell MTS Place.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - No team in the ultra-competitive Western Conference has made the playoffs more times in a row than the Minnesota Wild, with six straight appearances to share the current streak lead with the Anaheim Ducks.

Nikolaj Ehlers will be a scratch in game five of the Jets first round series against the Minnesota Wild in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Game 1 was the most tentative of the best-of-seven, with both teams trying to get a sense of things and offence at a premium.

Snatching up the win in game four was Connor Hellenuyck, who stopped all 30 shots that he faced in the game to improve to 3-1 with a 2.47 GAA and a.899 save percentage in this his first year in the playoffs.

Capitals upbeat after double OT win: 'It's a different series now'
To no one's surprise, the Blue Jackets and the Capitals once again found themselves in overtime, in the postseason of all places. The Columbus Blue Jackets and Washington Capitals are proving home-ice advantage means very little in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Devan Dubnyk (2.52 goals against average and.919 save percentage) has been the primary option in goal for Minnesota. The Wild have averaged just 2.58 gpg in those games.

After producing the fifth-best power-play unit in the regular season (scoring on 23.3 percent of all opportunities), the Jets have connected on 20.0 percent of their extra-man advantages in the early stages of this postseason.

The Jets continued their airstrike when Brian Little, moved up to the second line after Nik Ehlers was a game time scratch due to an unknown injury, deflected a Byfuglen shot at 5:42 of the first. "We want to do it (Friday) and we want to come out hard against them". Mark Scheifele's fourth goal of the post-season was the 5-0 dagger, coming 32 seconds into the third period. He also added 26 minutes in penalties. "I haven't put too much thought into it, trying to focus on tonight and trying to get back to feeling good again these past couple of days".

"Sami Niku has played one game in the National Hockey League and he scored one goal", Wheeler said with a smile when asked what he expects if Niku plays.
