The Jets have plenty of reasons to be motivated and quicker on Tuesday.

The Wild are hoping for more of the same in Game 4. The talk of the turnovers that led to the tying and winning goals and the terrible analytics of Carson Soucy.

"In a tie game like that, when the crowd is maybe sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for something to happen, that wakes everyone up", Stastny said. It can never be a culmination of many things that led to an end result.

Dubnyk talked about how he bounced back from giving up a soft goal to start the game. Next door to Bell MTS Place, a block was closed for a street party, highlighted by the game shown on two giant screens for fans in the NHL's smallest market. Both teams are loaded with highly skilled professionals trained to force their opponents into making mistakes. They were out-shot 14-5 in the second period and 16-3 in the third period. The difference of course is that the Wild did not make those turnovers count on the scoreboard.

Myers got the puck at the point in the Wild zone, made some moves to get around forward Jason Zucker and sent a sharp-angled shot past Dubnyk on the blocker side at 8:41 of the second period for the 1-0 lead. The offense also sputtered in the loss as they had averaged 4.00 gpg over their previous seven games.

"[Seeler has] surprised me since he's been here", Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. "There weren't a lot of adjustments to be made off of it".

May faces criticism in UK parliament over Syria strikes
Yet an after-the-fact debate - which may not include a vote - is unlikely to satisfy angry opposition politicians. May has emphasized that the strikes were "limited" to only target Damascus's chemical weapons program.

After being pushed around almost 500 miles from home and returning to the Twin Cities down 2-0 in a best-of-seven series, it was reasonable to wonder whether the Wild could actually hang with the rival Winnipeg Jets. You can play a bad game and score three. Desperate, the Wild had Spurgeon on the ice for 20 minutes, 19 seconds against the Jets.

"I thought Cory came in and played really well", Hynes said.

Five players scored in the Lightning's 5-2 victory in Game 1, with just one of the goals coming from the team's top line of Kucherov, Steven Stamkos and J.T. Miller - Kucherov's empty-netter with a little over a minute remaining. He had two points in game 3 and is stepping up in the abscence of all star Ryan Suter. Dustin Byfuglien is playing well and the Jets will be looking to rebound. "You don't win unless you have four lines and all your defensive core going". Koivu did eventually glide to the hashmark and the whistle was blown.

The swift-skating Winnipeg Jets winger admits there's a replay button deep in his brain that automatically forces him to relive the times when he's bearing down on an National Hockey League goaltender and the puck stays out. "You just try to find a way to make sure they go in more often".

The Wild answered for losing the first two games of this best-of-seven because Dubnyk atoned for his original sin. If the hits are there, take it.

The Jets tried to fly to Minneapolis Saturday, got re-routed to Deluth, Minn., and ultimately returned for a good night's rest back at home.

Should be another great game between these two Central Division rivals.
