The Jets dominated the contest and will head to Minnesota up 2-0 in the series thanks to a game that was owned by them for most of the game.  They took a 1-0 lead into the 3rd and then exploded for three goals in the final frame allowing one on the power play to end it 4-1 after 60 minutes.  Shots finished 44-17 for Winnipeg and they held Minnesota without a shot for most of the 3rd period.

Goals by Tyler Myers, Paul Stastny, Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine.  Jack Roslovic had a two point night in his first ever NHL playoff game.  Both Patrik Laine and Tyler Myers finished the game with a goal and an assist.
