Winnipeg Jets move closer to Western Conference Final

The record speaks for itself.

There is no room for error between the top two teams in the Western Conference. You could point to puck luck as the team who got the bounces seems to have gotten the wins. Game 7 is Thursday night (May 10, 2018) at Bridgestone Arena at Nashville, with the victor advancing to face the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference final.

Tonight's game six in Winnipeg should be a doozy.

The win was all the most surprising considering the stifling defense put on display by the Predators in clogging the neutral zone in a 2-1 win in Game 4 in Winnipeg.

The result equaled the series at three games each.

After backstopping the Predators to the Stanley Cup final last spring, Rinne was determined to help keep his team's season alive and he did by delivering a 34-save shutout. "Try to stay focused".

"We've answered the bell every single time". All that matters for the next 18 hours or so is game six... tonight.

Although Jets head coach Paul Maurice didn't end up needing to change his lineup, he did send a message by keeping Nikolaj Ehlers on the fourth line with Little and Joel Armia. Nashville needs a repeat of game four.

"I'm not going to do much grocery shopping", captain Blake Wheeler joked.

His next goal was even more spectacular.

He made that look way too easy.

GB Group plc (LON:GBG) Weekly Ratings on May 6, 2018
SVS hit GBX 967.5 during the last trading session after GBX 2.5 change.Savills plc is after having 0.00% since May 6, 2017. Therefore 73% are positive. 107.71 million shares or 1.45% less from 109.29 million shares in 2017Q3 were reported.

While Nashville dominated in the face off circle Saturday night, they had trouble keeping possession...

"For all the good things that they did tonight ... it probably should go seven games", Maurice said. The Preds MUST be better with the puck, anything over 10 giveaways gives a decided advantage to the Jets. The Jets and Predators victor will face the victor of the San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference Final. "With our backs against the wall, we went out and controlled the game".

It will be a decidedly less comfortable environment for Game 7 in Bridgestone Arena.

The game gets underway at 8:30 p.m. CT. "It's going to be a lot of fun". "You can't really compare him to anyone out there".

The Grammy Award-winning country trio of Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood were smoothly singing through their flawless harmonies, but when it came to the words "O'er the ramparts we watched", things started to get a little wonky - as seen in the video above.

- Congratulations to Preds GM David Poile who was inducted into the Washington DC Sports Hall of Fame over the weekend in recognition of his 15 years as GM of the Washington Capitals. Patrik Laine said. "And I think everybody's got to realize that now".

While the young Europeans work through the ups and downs of the playoff grind, they need only look to their centre to catch a glimpse of a guy making a major difference. We're gonna go to Winnipeg. "We're going to go to Winnipeg, we're going to win a game and we're going to come back here (to Nashville)".

- The Vegas train keeps on rolling... they are in the conference final and waiting for the victor of the Preds/Jets battle... He's also tied with Boston's Torey Krug for most points with 12 while skating an average of 26 minutes, 25 seconds a game.

His journey back to the postseason has been a long one, but the 33-year-old Byfuglien has made Winnipeg his home and is a key reason the Jets are Canada's last surviving team this postseason.

"That's great", Rinne said.
