NHL playoffs 2018: Live score, highlights, updates from Jets vs. Wild Game 2

Up 2-0 in their series against the Minnesota Wild, the Jets' road to Game 3 is anything but smooth.

"By no means is it, 'Oh we're at home". It looked likely that it would be the (Minnesota) Wild. "I think it was just about a response". Game 3 is set for Sunday at Xcel Energy Center. The area has been experiencing heavy snowfall and high winds.

The warning extends from the metro to much of southwestern Minnesota. "Obviously, you never want to get down to a 3-0 hole".

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the team that wins the first two games at home in a best-of-seven series goes on to win the series 88.7 per cent of the time. I'm hoping there's a pretty large contingent of us.

That said, home ice, itself isn't enough.

The Wild seemed to be holding on through much of the game before a three-goal third period by the Jets put it out of reach.

It took a lot of faith and confidence in his team to not make any changes after such an emphatic loss, especially in the playoffs.

The crowd, however, got even louder when the Jets scored first.

Here's how to watch Wild vs. Jets Game 2 online.

So far Morton has yet to attend a Jets home game during the playoffs. The storm is expected to ease off sometime Sunday. "You've got to win the game".

The Winnipeg Jets celebrate a goal by Paul Stasny during the third period at Bell MTS Place.

Alex Killorn scored twice during a four-goal second period, and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 18 shots in the final period to hold off the pesky Devils.

In the past, Dubnyk did not play up to his regular season numbers in the postseason, but under Bruce Boudreau he's been good enough for the rest of the team to win. Snow will continue to fall into Sunday.

Myers got the puck at the point in the Wild zone, made some moves to get around forward Jason Zucker and sent a sharp-angled shot past Dubnyk on the blocker side at 8:41 of the second period for the 1-0 lead.

"I think the fans recognize that we have a real shot of going deep this year and maybe even bringing home the (Stanley Cup). This whole city is abuzz", Parker said.

"We still know we're a good hockey team", Parise said. That's why the passion of a Jets fan is unrivalled across the league.

Rob Parker said the drive to Fargo was fine and their plan was always to spend Saturday night there. "But it's not like losing, getting down 0-2 in your own building and then having to go to their building". "Everything is supposed to be fine until about 45 minutes outside of Minneapolis". Minnesota wanted to make a statement early and they did, up 5-0 in shots and dominating during a power play - yet they could not get a puck past Winnipeg goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, he of the Vincent Price goatee and eyebrows. It's not as if we can go in there and get an easy game.
