Stanley Cup Playoffs: Conference Finals Preview

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Conference Finals Preview

The final four were all among the top six teams in the National Hockey League in the regular season. Vegas won the regular-season series with the Jets 2-1.

The win sets up a third-round matchup against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Grabbing the win in game six against the Sharks was Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped all 28 shots that he faced for his 4th shutout of the postseason this year and the 14th postseason shutout of his career. "So now, we're just happy to keep playing for them".

Tyler Myers and ex-Blue Paul Stastny scored 2:06 apart in the first period, and the Jets stunned the host Nashville Predators 5-1 on Thursday night in their first Game 7 - continuing an awesome run for a team swept in its previous two playoff appearances. That was the first goal Saros had allowed in four appearances this postseason.

The Jets next face the red-hot expansion Golden Knights for a spot in the NHL Stanley Cup finals with Game 1 of the best-of-seven series on Sunday. They were not a great road team during the course of the season, but they took three of four on the road in that series and outscored the Preds 15-4 in the three road wins.


In a series that was deadlocked at 3-3 and further deadlocked in shot attempts, shots, high danger scoring chances - you name it - Myers' breakthrough goal eight minutes and 43 seconds into Thursday night's deciding Game 7 created a tremendous opportunity for Winnipeg. They did struggle at home in that series and that could come into play here, especially since they are a exhausted bunch, while the Golden Knights will be well rested.

Already on the 11 th minute head coach of "Nashville" was forced to urgently change goalies - Pekka Rinne managed to avoid two gross errors that were used by Tyler Myers and Paul Stastny, who scored from such positions, of which such matches do not score.

And Connor Hellebuyck, the 5th round pick from 2012, was solid in net yet again for Winnipeg, knocking aside 36 shots on the night. During the regular season, he was 44-20 with a 2.36 GAA and a.924 save percentage overall, including 30-7 with a 2.31 GAA and a.921 save percentage here at home. Hellebuyck was 1-2 with a 4.40 GAA against the Golden Knights this year.

"There are very few teams I thought about waiving my no-trade clause for, but Winnipeg was one of them", Stastny said, adding that he has gotten better at dealing with the pressure of playing in a winner-take-all showdown. Jets coach Paul Maurice now is 3-0 all-time in Game 7s all on the road. Only Saros making save after save kept it 2-1 until Scheifele's snap shot for his 10th goal this postseason from the left circle with 2:10 left in the period. The problem for the Jets here is that they didn't play well at home in their series against the Preds and they will be very exhausted for this one, while the Golden Knights haven't played since Sunday.

"I don't think that is a better team than us over there, but it didn't go our way", Subban said. Under is 4-0 in Jets last 4 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game and under is 7-1 in Jets last 8 home games and Jets are 6-1 in their last 7 Saturday games. "They had 109 points".
