    ABERDEEN, SD (NAHL) - The Central Division regular season champs flexed their muscles on Friday night as Aberdeen tallied a convincing 6-0 shutout win over Minot. Forward Jon Bendorf recorded a hat-trick and had an assist to give the Wings a 1-0 series lead.

    Wings goalie Matt Vernon did the rest, making 25 saves in the shutout. Tauros goalie Samu Lonkila took the loss with 16 saves in two periods. Reod Waszczenko stopped all 8 shots in the third period.

    Game two in the best-of-five series is tonight in Aberdeen.

     WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Paul Stastny, Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine scored in the third period and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Minnesota Wild 4-1 on Friday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference first-round series.
 
     Defenseman Tyler Myers had a goal in the second period and also had an assist. Rookie Jack Roslovic, replacing injured veteran Mathieu Perreault, had two assists in the game that ended with a series of fights.
 
     Zach Parise had his second goal of the series when he deflected Mikko Koivu's shot past Connor Hellebuyck to end the goalie's shutout bid with 45 seconds left. The goal came on the power play after Jets forward Brandon Tanev was called for hooking with 59 seconds left.
 
     Hellebuyck made 16 saves. Devan Dubnyk stopped 39 shots for Minnesota.
 
     Winnipeg won 3-2 on Wednesday night. Game 3 is Sunday at Minnesota.
 
     The Wild had more jump early in the scoreless first period, surpassing the four-shot total they had Wednesday in the opening frame by going 5-0 by the five-minute mark. That included three shots at Hellebuyck during a power play with Myers in the box for tripping.
 
     Dubnyk didn't have to stop a Winnipeg shot until seven minutes had passed. The Jets then turned on a switch and had outshot the visitors 13-9 when the period ended, but many were from the outside.
 
     Winnipeg got its first power play five minutes into the second period when center Mark Scheifele was tripped by Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin, but it wasn't their shots with the man advantage that sparked the crowd. Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien threw two big hits nine seconds apart, the first on Mikael Granlund in front of the Winnipeg bench, the second a slam that rocked Koivu into the boards behind Hellebuyck.
 
     Winnipeg only got one shot on goal on the power play, but the momentum carried on for Myers' goal that made it 1-0 at 8:41.
 
     Myers got the puck at the point in the Wild zone, made some moves to get around forward Jason Zucker and sent a sharp-angled shot past Dubnyk on the blocker side at 8:41 of the second period for the 1-0 lead.
 
     Myers was dinged again for roughing forward Charlie Coyle 33 seconds after his goal, but the Jets kept the pressure on with some hustle and hits. When the second period ended, Winnipeg had outshot the Wild 27-14 and led 28-18 in hits.
 
     Stastny and Copp scored 1:42 apart, with Byfuglien sending a backhander to the front of the net that Statsny slapped in at 7:42.
 
     Copp made it 3-0 at 9:24 when he redirected in Bryan Little's shot. Laine fired in his second goal of the series from the right circle at 17:58.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Philadelphia Flyers rebounded rather nicely after absorbing a 7-0 loss to the two-time Stanley Cup champions on Wednesday.
 
     The Flyers knotted their first-round series at a game apiece as Sean Couturier provided the game-winning goal and two assists in Friday's 5-1 win at Pittsburgh. Shayne Gostisbehere and Nolan Patrick each had power-play goals to help Philadelphia wrest home-ice advantage from the Penguins.
 
     Travis Konecny and Andrew McDonald also tallied for the Flyers in their first win over the Penguins this season.
 
     Brian Elliott stopped 34 shots and blanked the Pens until Patric Hornqvist scored 5 1/2 minutes into the third period.
 
     Game 3 is Sunday at Philadelphia.
 
     Elsewhere in the playoffs:
 
     - Erik Haula scored at 15:22 of double-overtime to give the Golden Knights a 2-1 win over the Kings and a 2-0 series lead. Haula beat Jonathan Quick on the Knights' 56th shot of the night against Jonathan Quick, putting Vegas in command of the series despite scoring just three times in the first two games. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots and will carry a series goals-against average of 0.39 into Game 3 at Los Angeles.
 
     - Winnipeg has a two-games-to-none lead after Patrik Laine and Tyler Myers each had a goal and an assist to lead the Jets past the Wild, 4-1. Paul Stastny and Andrew Copp also scored to back Connor Hellebuyck, who faced just 17 shots and was perfect until Zach Parise scored on a power play with 45 seconds left. Game 3 is Sunday at St. Paul.

     UNDATED (AP) - Yu Darvish has been a disappointment through his first three starts with the Chicago Cubs. Darvish was chased during a four-run fifth Friday afternoon as the Braves blanked the Cubs, 4-0. He served up a three-run homer by Preston Tucker and left the game after yielding nine hits and throwing 105 pitches over 4 2/3 innings. Darvish is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA since signing a six-year, $126 million deal in February.
 
     Atlanta starter Anibal Sanchez fared much better, holding the Cubbies to three hits while striking out six over six innings. Sanchez has carved out a 1.29 earned run average over three starts for the Braves, who picked him up after he was released by the Twins during spring training.
 
     The surprising Braves are off to an 8-5 start, while the Cubs are 6-7 following their second straight loss.
 
     Checking out Friday's other major league action:

     - Tyson Ross scattered seven hits over six-plus innings and provided an RBI single with the bases loaded to snap a scoreless tie the Padres' 5-1 win over the Giants.

     - The Phillies were able to celebrate a 2-1 win at Tampa Bay after Jorge Alfaro singled home the tiebreaking run with two out in the ninth inning. Vince Velasquez permitted one run and four hits while fanning seven in 6 2/3 innings to help Philadelphia earn its fourth straight win.
 
     - Gerrit Cole struck out a career-high 14 while limiting the Rangers to three hits over seven innings of the Astros' 3-2 victory.

     - Albert Pujols hit a solo homer and an RBI single before the Angels scored the tying and go-ahead runs in the eighth inning of their sixth straight win, 5-4 at Kansas City. Shohei Ohtani doubled, singled and scored the go-ahead run on Ian Kinsler's sacrifice fly.
 
     - Teoscar Hernandez singled home the tiebreaking run in the seventh and added an RBI double in a three-run ninth as the Blue Jays rallied to end the Indians' five-game winning streak, 8-4. Steve Pearce doubled in a pair of runs in the ninth, and Aledmys Diaz belted a three-run homer after Toronto fell behind, 4-0.
 
     - Aaron Hicks hit an inside-the-park home run and added a conventional solo shot as the Yankees dealt the Tigers their fifth consecutive loss, 8-6. Aaron Judge stretched his hitting streak to 11 games and contributed an RBI double to help New York climb back to .500.
 
     - The Mariners trailed 3-2 with two out in the seventh until Mitch Haniger belted a three-run homer and Daniel Vogelbach added a two-run blast to rally Seattle past the Athletics, 7-4.

     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A fair catch on a kickoff received inside the 25-yard line will result in a touchback next season after a proposed rule change was approved by the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel.
 
     The NCAA has announced the adoption of several rule changes, some aimed at moving games along. The most notable involved kickoffs, which both college and professional football rule-makers acknowledge produce an inordinate number of injuries. In the hopes of creating fewer returns and more touchbacks, kickoffs were moved from the 30-yard line to the 35 in 2012 and the starting position after a touchback was moved up from the 20 to the 25.
