‘We never quit fighting,’ says Pardy with Jets down 2-0 to Ducks

4 Comments

Another lead going into the third period for the Winnipeg Jets, and another comeback victory for the Anaheim Ducks.

The Jets now trail in this intensely physical first-round series 2-0, after losing to the Ducks in heartbreaking fashion on Saturday, with Jakob Silfverberg burying the winning goal with 21 seconds remaining in regulation.

The Jets must now find a way to grab the lead and hold onto it for the win, and they will play Games 3 and 4 in front of their pumped up fans who haven’t had Stanley Cup playoff hockey in that city since 1996.

“We can’t put it on one thing. We’re down 2-0. We’ve got to remember it but put it behind us,” Adam Pardy told the Winnipeg Sun.

“That’s what we’ve done all year. A lot of people have counted us out at different times throughout the year. There were points where everybody thought we were going to start tanking or things were going to go bad for us. But that’s the best thing about this group, we never quit fighting.”
