The Minnesota Wild Had No Answers For The Winnipeg Jets

from Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune,

This incarnation of the Wild will be remembered for its resilience, as it had a knack for rebounding when adversity — from injuries, inconsistency and inexperience – threatened to undermine it.

And while that plucky perseverance headlined its pursuits in 2017-18, it wasn’t the last impression made by the group.

The Wild was crushed by the Jets 5-0 in Game 5 Friday in front of 15,321 at Bell MTS Place, ending its season while Winnipeg moved on to the second round after cruising to a 4-1 series win — the franchise’s first — in the best-of-seven set.

“It’s really disappointing,” center Matt Cullen said. “I don’t think that’s indicative of the kind of team that we have.”

This wasn’t an unexpected result.
