Wild's Matt Cullen Unsure Of Playing Future After Playoff Exit

Wild's Matt Cullen Unsure Of Playing Future After Playoff Exit

The Jets beat the Minnesota Wild 5-0 on Friday in Game 5 of their first-round matchup to win the series 4-1.

Sports reporter Elliotte Friedman even mentioned the couple while we was covering the game, saying that the playoff series was about more than hockey: it was about a city that lived and breathed the sport finally having a chance to celebrate after getting their team back after so long without them - Winnipeg lost the Jets in 1996 and the returned to Manitoba in 2011 after the Atlanta Thrashers were sold.

Devan Dubnyk was pulled midway through the first period and the Wild never managed to make the game competitive. "As I've said in the past, it's an important decision to me and my family so we'll give it its rightful due". "I think guys understand their role and the leaders in this group show the way", Hellebuyck said.

After talking for two days about the importance of scoring the first goal and shutting up rowdy Jets fans coming for a party, the Wild instead were chasing the game by 31 seconds in and were down 4-zip by the 12-minute mark.

Bryan Little, Brandon Tanev and Joel Armia also found the back of the net for the Jets. For us it was more about trying to right the ship and get to our game. "We just couldn't get the one (goal) to go in to get things sparked". I think for stretches there we did a bit. In a league that seems to be tilting younger, they rely a lot on older players like Suter, Parise, Eric Staal and Mikko Koivu, all in their mid-30s. Alex Stalock finished, stopping 15 of 16 shots.

The Wild are now 11-10 all time in elimination games, and join Pittsburgh and Anaheim as the only clubs to have made the playoffs in each of the last six seasons.

Scheifele scored his fourth goal of the series 32 seconds into the third with a one-timer on the power play.

Earlier this week, organizers said they were considering opening the arena to fans for road playoff games.
