"He's got a lot of moves I'm sure, and you just try to stay one step ahead as best you can". Minnesota has trailed a series 2-0 in five of those six playoff seasons, including a year ago when it lost the first two at home and fell to St. Louis in five games.

"As a coach, you care about everything".
"We have a game plan", Byfuglien said.
"When we wake up tomorrow, you look back and say: 'OK, which parts of the game did we do well.' And we'll be able to look at a lot of that tape and say we did really well".
From that point on Elliott looked like a completely different goalie, and even when he seemed to be beaten things still managed to go his way.
Winnipeg only got one shot on goal on the power play, but the momentum - and hits - carried on and Myers scored at 8:41 to make it 1-0.
"We did bend a little bit in the third but didn't break, so it's a good feeling to be up 2-0", Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman said.
It is nearly never any one particular thing that goes into a win, and on Friday there was a lot that went right for the Flyers that went wrong in the first game.
George Parros is a busy man early in the Stanley Cup playoffs thanks to a rash of questionable hits around the National Hockey League.
Brent Burns also scored and captain Joe Pavelski had two assists during a three-goal second period to help the Sharks easily take early control in the series between California rivals. The Jets have won 11 games in a row at home, a streak that dates back to February. "But his game was good". "It's a long series".
"We had a meeting, me, him and Parros, and went over videos and just what they were looking at when he was being considered for suspensions and fines and other examples throughout the league", Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said.
Devils coach John Hynes echoed that sentiment. I told the guys here I think home playoff games are fun, but I think road playoff games are way better, especially when you're facing a crowd like that. We've played two solid games and sort of have limited their time and space with the puck.
"You don't really have that much time to think", Elliott said when asked what his mindset was on that play.
On Friday, Byfuglien's back-to-back hits on Granlund and Koivu five minutes into the second period got the crowd into it and the Jets soon broke the 0-0 tie on a Tyler Myers goal.
The Mariners, meanwhile, will start their rebuild under incoming coach Mike Mulvey from rock bottom. "And we're going to bring a "W" home for the Jets". Putting up 14 shots in the middle frame - as compared to Minnesota's five - Winnipeg increased its lead to 27-14 heading into the third period of play. Devan Dubnyk stopped 39 shots for Minnesota.
"We did a great job in the third period". "It is what it is". Teams that take a 3-0 lead win 98 per cent of the time.
