ST. PAUL Authentic Alex Smith Jersey , Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild returned home from Winnipeg and regrouped to roar back in their first-round playoff series.The Jets were a late arrival for Game 3 in more ways than one.Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise had power-play goals in the first period for the spark that was missing on the road, and the Wild scored four times in the second to beat the Jets 6-2 on Sunday night.Were here to play, goalie Devan Dubnyk said, and were fully capable of pushing hard.The Wild will try to tie the best-of-seven series 2-2 when they host Game 4 on Tuesday night.They have been physical so weve got to push back, said Jordan Greenway, who scored his first NHL goal just 20 seconds after Eric Staal sent a wrist shot past a struggling Connor Hellebuyck. Fighting pucks all night, Hellebuyck was pulled for Steve Mason at the second intermission.Matt Dumba and Marcus Foligno bookended the furious middle frame with goals for the Wild, who won a postseason home game for only the second time in their last nine contests. Mikko Koivu and Nick Seeler each had two assists and Dubnyk made 29 saves, keeping the crowd loud all night.Blake Wheeler and Tyler Myers scored for the Jets.Were in a series here, said Hellebuyck, who made 16 saves. Were going to lose one once in a while. Its how we respond to the next one.After overtaking the Wild with two third-period goals to win 3-2 in Game 1 and dominating the action in Game 2 on the way to a 4-1 victory, the Jets hit some minor turbulence. The blizzard that blanketed the Twin Cities forced their charter flight to land in Duluth on Saturday afternoon and return to Winnipeg for the night. The Jets skipped the customary morning skate and arrived Sunday about eight hours before faceoff.Whether or not the Jets were actually affected by the weather hardly mattered, given the way the Wild greeted them after the lackluster performance in Game 2.I dont know if it made us worse, but I can say for a fact that it certainly didnt make us better, Jets coach Paul Maurice said.The only shot the Jets sent on target over the first 11-plus minutes was the one by Wheeler that went in, a wide-angle attempt on the power play and a softie if there ever was one in keeping with Dubnyks uncanny tendency to let fluke goals get by him while making many more high-degree-of-difficulty stops. Dubnyk also gave up a goal on the first shot in a couple of games late in the regular season.And then he shut the door. So I wasnt worried Alex Smith Jersey Elite , Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. I thought, `OK. This is going to work.The Wild snapped right back. Koivu took the initial shot that set up both goals in the first period, with Granlund waiting for the rebound on the first one . Parise freed himself from a tie-up in traffic with Jacob Trouba to move in position for the redirect of the second one .Myers brought the decibel level down with his slap shot that cut the lead to 3-2 , but the Wild killed consecutive penalties with only about a minute between power plays soon after that to retake momentum. Then came the goals by Greenway and Staal, and the rout was on.When when that second period started, we werent able to get faster, Wheeler said. And thats when the game changed. They stuck with it, and we just werent able to get to our speed we needed.The second period went from bad to worse for the Jets, when Myers was checked by Foligno and caught his skate at the bottom of the boards. He needed help off the ice and into the locker room and did not return. Maurice had no update on the defensemans condition, but without elaborating he suggested the injury could have been avoided.Didnt love it, Maurice said, referring to both the hit and the outcome.There was a lot to like, at least, about the Wilds performance. All four lines produced at least one goal, and the rookie defenseman Seeler had a breakout game in the back with four blocked shots and a breakaway shot that hit the post and barely stayed in front of the line.Thats playoff hockey. You need everybody, Staal said. You dont win unless you have four lines and all your defensive core going.NOTESThe Wild set a franchise postseason record for goals in a home game. Their high was a 7-2 victory at Vancouver in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals on May 5 http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline … ith-jersey , 2003. After clinching their first-round series with a win in Game 6 at Xcel Energy Center in 2015 over St. Louis, the Wild lost both home games in a sweep by Chicago. Then they went 1-5 on their own ice in the playoffs over the last two years in series losses to Dallas and St. Louis. Jets center Mathieu Perreault missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury. Defenseman Toby Enstrom and center Matt Hendricks have yet to play in the series due to a lower-body injury. Wheeler had the third postseason goal of his career in 28 games. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) While the St. Louis Blues played perhaps their most complete game of the season, the Anaheim Ducks left their home ice amid boos and embarrassment.Both of these teams are looking forward to their upcoming nine-day breaks, but for very different reasons.Zach Sanford and Tyler Bozak scored goals in their first games back from injured reserve, and the Blues headed into the All-Star break with a 5-1 victory over the stumbling Ducks on Wednesday night.Vladimir Tarasenko, Oskar Sundqvist and Sammy Blais also scored for the Blues, who had lost three of four before splitting two games on a Southern California road trip. They couldnt have played much better against the Ducks, largely dominating on both ends from start to finish in a win that left sixth-place St. Louis in the wild-card playoff conversation at 22-22-5.I think everyone played well throughout the lineup, said Bozak, who had missed the past nine games with a concussion. Hopefully we can keep working together and building this chemistry. Pucks are starting to go in for us.In both teams final game before the All-Star break and their subsequent bye weeks, rookie Jordan Binnington bounced back from his first career regulation loss with 12 saves in his fifth career victory.Yeah, its a great way to go into the break, St. Louis coach Craig Berube said. If we play hockey like that, were going to win our share of games.Daniel Sprong scored the games opening goal, but the injury-plagued Ducks were then buried in their 14th loss in 16 games.It was one of the worst games Ive been a part of Authentic Matt Ioannidis Jersey , and Ill leave it at that, Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler said. Its just been a tough month in the locker room. This whole month has been hard emotionally. We have a great group of guys. We have all the pieces we need. We just cant seem to find our way right now. It wears on you. This is our livelihood, and right now its not going great.All-Star John Gibson stopped 26 shots before former Blues goalie Chad Johnson replaced him with 9:25 to play, sending fans to the exits early on Anaheims only home game between Jan. 11 and Feb. 13. The remaining Honda Center fans halfheartedly booed the team off the ice after it managed just 13 shots.Its really frustrating how we cant come out and compete hard, captain Ryan Getzlaf said. As a collective group, were not playing hard enough and competing hard enough. Obviously, this break couldnt come at a better time.Sanford had his 10th goal of the season and an assist after missing the Blues previous three games with an upper-body injury. Bozak, who got credit for a third-period goal that ricocheted off Nick Ritchies skate, returned to the St. Louis lineup after missing nine games with a concussion.Blues forward Ryan OReilly played in his 700th career game and had an assist to extend his scoring streak to six games.St. Louis outshot Anaheim 8-0 in the opening 6 ½ minutes before Sprong took a pass from Getzlaf and hit the top corner for his eighth goal since joining the Ducks last month.The Blues responded with a deluge.After Tarasenko tied it with his 17th goal and Sanford scored early in the second, Sundqvist put the Blues up 3-1 off a pass from former Ducks forward Patrick Maroon, who has scored a point in eight consecutive games against Anaheim.The Ducks added another major loss to their injury-plagued season Wednesday when Czech forward Ondrej Kase was ruled out for the season with a torn labrum. Kase also missed the first 18 games of the season with a concussion before scoring 20 points in 30 games.Defenseman Michael Del Zotto made his Ducks debut after the club acquired him in a trade with Vancouver a week ago.NOTES: AL Rookie of the Year Shohei Ohtani dropped the puck in the ceremonial opening faceoff on Angels Night. Ducks F Jakob Silfverberg missed his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury. The team hopes Silfverberg will return to practice after the break along with F Corey Perry, who has missed the entire season with a knee injury, and G Ryan Miller, who has been out since Dec. 9 with a sprained knee ligament. Ducks C Ryan Kesler missed his fourth straight game due to the latest problem with his troublesome hip. He is not skating, and the Ducks dont know when he will return. F Patrick Eaves will play two games with the Ducks AHL affiliate in San Diego before he is re-evaluated. He hasnt played for Anaheim since Nov. 9 after breaking his ribs.
