Game 21: Wild 4 Jets 2 post-game recap

Post-game from the Jets dressing room as well as from Coach Maurice.

Game three of this four-game road trip ends with a somewhat improbable 4-2 loss to the Wild who scored four unanswered in the final frame which drops the Jets record to 12-7-2 on the season.

For those who would like to take a deeper dive into the advanced stats here are the results from tonight’s game via Natural Stat Trick.


– Jets opened the scoring when Patrik Laine buried a Tyler Myers rebound to open the scoring;
– Nikolaj Ehlers expanded the Jets lead on the power play late in the middle frame;
– Niederreiter, Fehr got the Wild back into the game in 3rd, Staal the go-ahead goal & Parise the empty netter;
– Andrew Copp was knocked into the boards hard and knocked out of the game in the final frame;
– First time this season the Jets have suffered back-to-back regulation losses.


– Laine scored his team leading 14th goal of the season (tied for 4th in NHL goal scoring)
– Laine has six of the last eight goals for Winnipeg.

Coach Maurice:  Where did he see the game start to turn?  Did he feel like they stepped back?  Did he consider challenging the third Minnesota goal.  Status of Andrew Copp?  Tough to get into a rhythm with all the power plays?  On the momentum the Wild may have gotten from the late kill in the 3rd.  On the timeout.  On the first Wild goal.  On the Fehr game tying goal.

Health news:

Andrew Copp left the game after taking a hard hit into the boards in the 3rd period.  He didn’t return and after the game coach Maurice indicated Copp went through the concussion protocol but didn’t have any further update.

Up next:

No rest for the Jets as they will fly to St. Louis where they will take on the Blues tomorrow night.  The good news for Winnipeg is that St. Louis plays tonight against the Predators.  Puck drop is at 6 pm.
