Sundqvist scores twice, Blues edge Jets 4-3 to take 2-0 lead

We didn't put a lot of pucks in the first two so you're anxious that, or you're aware that you don't want to start looking like we're squeezing sticks or again, running secret plays because what you're doing's not good enough to score and you've got to find a different way.

LAST 10 GAMES: Jets: 3-6-1, averaging 2.6 goals, 4.3 assists, 3.5 penalties and 7.9 penalty minutes while giving up 2.9 goals per game with a.914 save percentage.

"They were, like, 'Oh, that is so awesome.' So they were happy for us".

"We didn't get to our game, really", he said.

"We just stayed within our game and tried to play it simple", Laine said.

The teams were tied at 1 after the first period, and at 3 following the second.

A pregame party had been organized outside on 14th Street.

Inside the arena, live music - from a "Blues" band, of course - was being belted out through the public-address system as the fans started to take their seats.

Winnipeg dropped the first two games by one goal, but got back on track in St. Louis.

"The shots are 58-54 [for St. Louis], the two teams finished with 99 points, they've had three more power plays", Maurice noted.

The Blues kept things interesting with a goal from Alex Steen with just over six minutes to go, but Connor scored his second of the game with 5:16 left in regulation to put this game on ice. "I'm sure we'll respond with our A-game". It's a grinder and they like it tight. "So, we're all right".

Obviously, the Jets were the more desperate of the two teams and it showed in their play in the opening frame where they outplayed St. Louis by a wide margin but had nothing to show for it.

We didn't have to reinvent the wheel, or pull an A-game out of the bag where we'd been playing bad first two games.

But the Jets grabbed the lead for good when they scored three times in a span of 4:01 in the second.

With Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo off for interference, Laine blasted a shot past Binnington to give Winnipeg a 2-1 lead at 2:49 that sparked chants of "Go Jets Go!" He denied Bryan Little, Hayes, and Mathieu Perrault.

And in what has been a microcosm of the series, the Blues were able to stem the tide and keep the game on even terms until David Perron gave them a lead on a power-play goal from the slot that changed direction off the skate of Dustin Byfuglien.

Connor then added to the lead less than a minute later on the power play when his shot from the right circle zipped past Binnington and suddenly the incessant din within the arena subsided dramatically.
