Jets' Josh Morrissey suspended one game for cross-checking Eric Staal

Jets' Josh Morrissey suspended one game for cross-checking Eric Staal

The Wild broke the tension with their Game 3 blowout of the Winnipeg Jets, but simply staying relevant in the first round is no way to advance in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

This was the Dubnyk of dubious and untimely playoff goals past, rearing himself in a must-win game for Minnesota, which was staring into the abyss of a 3-0 series deficit to the relentless Jets.

The Wild revealed the injury about three hours before Game 4 against the Jets, with a vague announcement on Tuesday by general manager Chuck Fletcher that declared Parise's status as "week to week".

Morrissey has one assist in the series averaging 20:12 of ice time per game.

"This is our ice", the Xcel Energy Center public-address announcer bellowed as the Winnipeg Jets and the Minnesota Wild neared the start of their National Hockey League playoff game in St. Paul, Minn., on Tuesday night. "In order to win, we've got to play a better game. But [the refs] were looking right at it and they told us they didn't see it, so you make up your minds". For the Jets to have a commanding series advantage, they have to steal this game.

"My take", Boudreau said, "is the same take that everybody in the building saw". The Jets can clinch their first playoff-series victory in franchise history with one more win, possibly Friday night at Bell MTS Place in downtown Winnipeg in Game 5. The Wild can make it 2-2 and pack momentum and confidence for their Game 5 trip to Winnipeg. Staal immediately went to the bench, and no penalty was called on the play.

Speaking before the suspension was announced, Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice did not say what lineup changes could be made. "I would never try to do that".

After news of the hearing came out, Maurice said he was not surprised to hear the NHL was seeking to speak with Morrissey, but didn't think the league should go any further than that.

"I'm not looking for an apology", he said.

Staal, Dumba, Granlund and one or two others had Minnesota's best chances, but Cullen said the team needed to play with a bit more desperation and "we didn't have enough". "I love it. It's part of the game, but that wasn't a good play".

"We knew last night was a big one for us, but tomorrow's going to be even bigger", Wild captain Mikko Koivu said Monday. It was a complete accident.

This is still Winnipeg's series to lose.

In a play that stirred up a lot of chatter on social media, Morrissey appeared to cross-check Staal in the face during a penalty kill in the first period.

NOTES: Jets defenseman Tyler Myers was out with a lower-body injury suffered in a collision with Marcus Foligno in Game 3. "And at the very most you might look at a fine, but thankfully Eric Staal played the rest of the game, played hard, played well, finished all of his checks [and] played with an edge". "You can not use an excuse of, 'Well, I haven't played in awhile.' That to me is a crock".
