The snowstorm began Friday night, with the heaviest snowfall coming Saturday afternoon and evening. Same players. Same line combinations.
Boudreau's teams have won in the playoffs, just not often enough.
After struggling in Game 1, Soucy answered every question thrown at him on Thursday, owning his mistakes and vowing to be better in Game 2.
Game 1 was the first home playoff win in Winnipeg since April 26, 1996 when they defeated the Detroit Red Wings. Kucherov, Tampa Bay's leading scorer this season, has 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) in 47 career playoff games.
The Winnipeg Jets celebrate a goal by Paul Stasny during the third period at Bell MTS Place. Minnesota's game one hero, netminder Devan Dubnyk, seemingly picked up where he left off on Wednesday, stopping all 13 pucks he faced in the first period.
"For a guy like him it's tough, because he's never really had an established role".
"Whenever you get that start you want to take advantage of that opportunity", said Elliott. "That is key for me and allows me to stay calm and confident as well". "It's been really fun, and it's been really important for our group".

Minnesota's Matt Cullen and Zach Parise scored in a little more than a two-minute span early in the third period.
Blake Wheeler was certain the second game would be different. Instead, Elliott calmly snagged Crosby's backhand out of the air and kept the Penguins off the board.
"That said, it can still be rewarding when we turn the game on and see Nick Seeler or Carson Soucy or someone else making a play" for the National Hockey League team, Lalonde added. Whether you get beat bad or whatever, you still have to win one and it doesn't matter if it's now, the fifth, or the seventh.
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. That figure's trended lower lately, however, as the team has created 4.7 takeaways over its last 10 games and 3.8 takeaways over its last five.
"I was just shooting", he said with a chuckle. As a lifelong Jets fan, I'm just ecstatic. "And I think we work hard to fix those things". "We gotta figure out a way to get some offensive zone time and I feel like we've been playing on three quarters of the rink for two games now. We've got to play good once, and we've got to have that on Monday".
But it wasn't just Game 1 that had to cause some concern for Flyers fans. Then there is the fact that Elliott's career postseason numbers as a whole - including a forgettable performance in Calgary a year ago - have not been great.
The Minnesota Wild need to win a game in Winnipeg to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and they weren't able to accomplish that in a 3-2 Game 1 loss to the Jets. "That is what it's all about it". "I try to shoot as many pucks as I can and if they're cheating on me then Mark is going to be open and they have to pay for it".
Minnesota and Winnipeg exchanged power plays in the second period before the Jets found a second opportunity late in the frame as Nate Prosser went off for holding.
