Jets take opener against Wild

WINNIPEG—Joe Morrow felt a bit like he was wearing glass slippers instead of skates last night.

The Jets' defenceman scored at 12:47 of the third period to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild in Game 1 of their first-round NHL Western Conference playoff series.

“I've had a major roller-coaster of an NHL career so far,” the 25-year-old Morrow said.

Red-hot Mets win again

MIAMI—The N.Y. Mets are winning even when they can't get a hit against the opposing starter.

Miami Marlins' lefty Jarlin Garcia was pulled after pitching six hitless innings in his first major-league start yesterday and the Mets rallied to take advantage of a strong season debut by Zack Wheeler and win 4-1 for their eighth-straight victory.

The top-ranked Johnson wound up 10th in last week's major—his third-straight appearance in the top 10 on the challenging layout.

“I definitely expect better,” Johnson said yesterday in prepping for this week's RBC Heritage.

That's not what coach Dwane Casey wanted.

“We are taking these last games seriously because now isn't the time to let any bad habits into our game,” Casey stressed.
