Jets fans flooded the city streets before, during and after the team's 5-0 series clinching Game 5 win over the Minnesota Wild Friday night.
Well that's it. The Winnipeg Jets have gotten themselves a first-ever series win for the franchise.
Devan Dubnyk - The Wild goaltender was pulled from series-deciding Game Five after allowing four goals on 10 shots in just under 12 minutes; he had a.930 save percentage in the first four games of the series, but finished at.908 after his brief, but eventful, Game Five performance.
In a must-win game where the Wild desperately needed the players Fletcher assembled - and believed in - to elevate their play in order to stave off elimination, the Wild instead got "rattled" before crumbling into the most lopsided road playoff loss in franchise history. "As I've said in the past, it's an important decision to me and my family so we'll give it its rightful due". Game 5 could have been the final one of Cullen's lengthy career. But like I said, first two games we were good at it.
"We knew that Game 3 wasn't our best", forward Mark Scheifele said.

"We forced them to play these long balls, but when they played them from their own half of the pitch, it's less unsafe ". Burnley looked for a second equaliser, but Chelsea were more likely to find a third with Davide Zappacosta out of luck.
"We need some time to get away from it all".
In a release today said, "We wish to thank the greatest fans in the league for their patience and cooperation as the Jets continue their playoff run".
The Jets are the third team from the Western Conference who have advanced to the second round.
The Wild played for the second game in a row without left winger Zach Parise, who suffered a broken sternum in Game 3. Minnesota has not won a playoff series since 2015, when the Wild beat the St. Louis Blues in six games.
