Dumba scores twice in third as Wild beat Jets 4-1

Noah Ferguson | 14 January, 2018, 11:13

Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler admitted cranking up the energy level after waging an exhausting Central Division battle a night earlier was a tall order.

Granlund helped with each of the first two goals.

Dumba got his goals in the third period, helping Minnesota win its second straight behind 32 saves from Devan Dubnyk.

Winnipeg moving within 1 despite how lopsided the game felt through the first half seemed to ignite the Wild.

Minnesota gets a quick turnaround for a game Sunday against the Vancouver Canucks. "We've seen that since the Christmas break and as we get closer through January to the all-star break I think it's starting to turn up more, especially Western Conference games and within the division. This is a big one", Dumba said. Injuries are part of the game, but as hard as the Jets have battled to overcome the loss of top-line centre Mark Scheifele and complementary pieces like Adam Lowry, Brandon Tanev and Shawn Matthias, this group didn't have their skating legs for much of the past two games. Mathieu Perreault had Winnipeg's goal Saturday, and Connor Hellebuyck stopped 37 shots.

"We looked challenged in the first especially", said Jets head coach Paul Maurice.

"In a game like that, we need to make simpler plays, sort of keep it as simple as possible and try to just get into that grinding game as soon as we can", defenceman Josh Morrissey said. We're playing too well.

Granlund opened the scoring with a redirect in front.

Winnipeg looked like a team that skated the night before, falling 2-1 to the Blackhawks in Chicago, although goalie Connor Hellebuyck didn't appear tired at all despite suiting up for back-to-back games.

The Jets lone goal came courtesy of the power play, which has been mostly rock-solid through 46 games and continues to be ranked second in the National Hockey League. Not long after getting denied by Hellebuyck on a breakaway, Zucker buried a rebound from off the end boards.

That was the first time Zucker has scored a goal with a goalie in the cage in 17 games, His only other score during that stretch came on an empty-netter. Granlund picked up an assist on Zucker's goal.

MI took advantage of a pair of early goals to defeat No. 9 Minnesota 3-1 and earn a series sweep at 3M Arena at Mariucci. Winnipeg ended up going 1-for-2 with the man advantage. Another shot from the point made it 4-1 later in the third for Dumba's second two-goal game of the season.

After Sunday's game, Minnesota will be off for five days before returning to action next Saturday against Tampa Bay. "People have come into our building after that and we've given a couple of beat-downs this year, so we knew it was going to be a grind". "So are we, actually", said Perreault, who is up to 13 goals and 26 points in 34 games this season.

Winnipeg, meanwhile, has a week off.

The Jets still lead the Central Division by three points over Nashville, but that could change during the break as both the Predators (25-11-6) and St. Louis Blues (26-17-3) come off their bye weeks Monday.
