"In that building, the puck crosses the blue line and the crowd is expecting the chance (to score) ... it just needs to get near the net and they get pretty excited", Maurice said Saturday before the Jets departed for Minnesota.

Cullen, the former Moorhead and St. Cloud State star, scored his 19th-career playoff goal in his 124th-career playoff game just 1:46 into the third period. Laine has 46 goals and 27 assists to his credit (and has notched a point in 52 games). Game 3 is set for Sunday at Xcel Energy Center.

The city worked with Winnipeg Transit, the Winnipeg Downtown BIZ and Winnipeg police to plan transportation and security for the event, and those stakeholders met Thursday morning to begin planning Friday's party. The Jets have won 11 games in a row at home, a streak that dates back to February. But by no means is it, 'Oh, we're at home. "We've got to play our absolute best".

This is a very solid team that just may have the best shot of knocking out the mighty Predators later on. He walked by Minnesota winger Jason Zucker and then whipped a shot past Devan Dubnyk. The Jets then turned on a switch and had outshot the visitors 13-9 when the period ended, but many were from the outside.

"They're coming in with confidence and that's all you can ask from the young guys", Myers said. "You just try to be aggressive and play it just like any other breakaway".

The Atlantic Division champions scored three times in a 2:47 span in the second period, and the reeling Devils pulled goalie Keith Kinkaid after Killorn's third goal in two games made it 5-1 with 6:48 remaining in the period.

Winnipeg's Mathieu Perreault - who missed the second half of Wednesday's series opener after finding himself on the receiving end of many thunderous body checks - did not dress for the Jets, as rookie Jack Roslovic took his place in the lineup alongside Bryan Little and Joel Armia on Winnipeg's third line.
