Jets win game 5; fans erupt at Whiteout Street Party

Minnesota Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau questions a call in the second period against the St. Louis Blues in Game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinals on Saturday

Minnesota Wild center Matt Cullen is unsure if he has played his last National Hockey League game, which was a 5-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets that eliminated the Wild from the playoffs. Mark Scheifele's fourth goal of the post-season was the 5-0 dagger, coming 32 seconds into the third period.

Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, finished the series with a.924 save percentage, matching his regular-season performance, and a 1.94 goals-against average, with shutouts in Games 4 and 5 to close out the series.

If there was any doubt before the playoffs, the Winnipeg Jets have quickly proven themselves to be a serious Stanley Cup contender in 2018. About 15,000 fans gathered along Donald Street and Graham Avenue as part of the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party.

Dubnyk was pulled in favour of Alex Stalock, after the Jets scored four times on their first 10 shots. The original Winnipeg Jets - now the Arizona Coyotes - only won two playoff series, beating the Calgary Flames in 1985 and 1987.

He added: "One never knows with this president what's negotiating tactics and what's not". The U.S. goods and services trade deficit with Japan was $54.9 billion in 2016.

Jacob Trouba, Bryan Little, Brandon Tanev and Joel Armia supplied the early offence.

The Jets will now move on to face the victor of the Predators-Avalanche series, but before that happens fans needed to celebrate so they took to the streets. They only got as far as the second round in 2014 and '15, when Chicago knocked them out both years.

"To be honest, we love the Jets, but when they lost Game 3, we were like, 'Oh my God, Game 5 is on our wedding day!'" Barlett told the outlet.
