The result created some bad (if predictable) blood between two cousins who attended the game: Minnesota resident David Dube and Winnipegger Luc Dube. Winnipeg went on to win 2-0, with the final tally coming against an empty net with 11 seconds remaining, to take a 3-1 series lead.
Morrissey will not be eligible for Game 5 at Winnipeg on Friday (7:30 p.m. ET; USA, SN, TVAS2, FS-N). The Jets would look uponDustin Byfuglien to carry the load of the minutes while Morrissey is serving his suspension.
There were few scoring chances until a late-period hook by Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba put the Wild on the power play. On Tuesday, the Jets beat the Wild 2-0 on two goals from Mark Scheifele of Kitchener, Ontario. Morrissey had a hearing with the league's department of player safety Wednesday.
Winnipeg is already missing veteran defencemen Toby Enstrom and Dmitry Kulikov.
Leafs Stop The Bruins 4-2
It was a rough night for the Bruins first line as Bergeron, and Pastrnak finished at -2, and Brad Marchand finished at -3. The Bruins opened the third period opened with four great power play scoring chances, but nothing to show for it.
And in this corner, you have Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau - with his legion of angry Wild fans hanging on his every word - who called it a vicious, dirty hit that completely changed the outcome of Game 4. "I'm not up here trying gamesmanship to get the league to call extra stuff". "It is what it is, though".
Now, the Jets will learn if Morrissey will face discipline after his hit on Staal wasn't called Tuesday. The Jets closed up the holes they gave the Wild through the neutral zone in Game 3. To add insult to injury, Morrissey assisted on the goal.
On the Jets side of thing, Morrissey said he was able to watch the incident after the game, which he termed accidental.
"There's a penalty there [but] no intent", he conceded in a scrum with reporters. The Thunder Bay, Ont., native was slow to gain his footing and skated gingerly to the Minnesota bench. "Tough. I'm all for playing hard, I love it, it's part of the game but that wasn't a good play".
President Trump meets with Japan's prime minister
But Abe received no warning about Trump's decision to accept a meeting with Kim Jong Un and has been scrambling ever since . Abe has faced criticism in Japan for not getting an exemption to recently introduced USA tariffs on steel and aluminum.
Will the Minnesota Wild have enough gas in the tank to mount a comeback? It's the glaring weakness that made the Wild an abysmal 3-on-3 overtime team in the regular season: They don't have a sniper, a pure goal-scorer, a guy who makes the crowd gasp and the opposing goalie's stomach weak when the puck is on his stick.
It was only the second time this season that Hellebuyck had been yanked during a game, and perhaps he felt he had something to prove. Both goaltenders were fantastic in this one. Hellebuyck alongside the Nashville Predators' Pekka Rinne and the Tampa Bay Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy will be on the red carpet in Vegas in June.
"He cross-checked me", Staal said. "But I've got to dial it back in". How about the fact that with under a minute to play in the first period Boudreau has the Cullen, Coyle, Ennis line on the ice, period, and to top that off they were up against the Scheifele line?

And, as Game 3 approaches Thursday in Miami with the series tied at one game apiece, Embiid's status is still up in the air. While having a monster game, Wade moved up to No. 10 on the league's all-time leading playoff scorers list in the process.
