One of the NHL’s most playoff-tested rosters meets one of its greenest in the first-round clash between the Jets and Wild. Minnesota’s sixth consecutive showing in the Stanley Cup playoffs is tied for the league’s third-longest streak. Though Winnipeg has far less postseason experience, making only its second appearance in franchise history, a high-powered offense and steady goaltending place it among this year’s championship favorites.
Brandon Schlager: Bruce Boudreau’s playoff blues are no secret. Long a regular season savant, Boudreau-coached teams frequently fall short of postseason expectations, advancing beyond the second round just once in his 11 seasons behind the bench. The Wild haven’t been to a conference finals since 2003 and have fallen into an 0-2 hole in six of their last seven series. None of this bodes well for their outlook against the Jets, who rank second in the NHL in goals per game (3.32), fifth in goals allowed per game (2.65) and fifth in power-play scoring (23.3 percent). Minnesota must make do without No. 1 defenseman Ryan Suter, who’s out for the playoffs. The odds are stacked in the Jets’ favor.
Evan Sporer: This series comes at a pretty bad time for Minnesota injury-wise. They just lost Suter to a scary fracture in his ankle. On top of that, they’re getting his defensive partner Jared Spurgeon back from a hamstring injury, but literally throwing him straight to the wolves asking him to play big minutes against a formidable Jets team. Zach Parise’s recent scoring resurgence — he’s got 12 goals in his past 18 games — has somewhat piqued my interest. Mikko Koivu is also a player who should be near the top of everyone’s Selke ballots, and will play tons of difficult minutes this series. The problem is, when Koivu or the recently healthy Spurgeon aren’t on the ice, someone else is going to have to take a pretty difficult matchup. The Jets’ offensive depth is going to give many teams fits in the postseason, Minnesota included.
Jim Cerny: Plain and simple, the Winnipeg Jets are the far superior team in this series, not to mention one of the true elite teams throughout the long regular season. Of course, there are a lot of playoff novices on their roster, meaning Dustin Byfuglien and Paul Stastny need to be strong voices in the room and leaders-by-example when the going gets rough on the ice. Paul Maurice coached the Carolina Hurricanes to the 2002 Stanley Cup Final, but his resume does not have a lot of post-season experience otherwise. Still, this should be a real post-season coming out party for the likes of Laine, Ehlers, Helleybuyck and Scheifele, among others. The Wild have more playoff expereince, but not much success the past five years in the playoffs. They were a long shot in my eyes to win this series anyway, but the Ryan Suter injury solidified my pick.Click Here To Watch
