EXACTLY What will Happen In Nashville vs Winnipeg

Connor Hellebuyck: Preparing for Game 1

Connor Hellebuyck: Preparing for Game 1

In the opening period, the Jets were outshot 20-4, but after 20 minutes, the visitors went to the intermission with a 1-0 lead.

Stark said he expects a win and paused thoughtfully for a moment before saying he thinks the Jets will would squeak out a tight win in Nashville Friday night.

The regular-season numbers tell the tale of two teams evenly matched in nearly every main category, although Nashville clipped the Jets 3-1-1 in their five meetings that featured 41 goals in regulation.

"I think we can skate a little better than we did tonight". Aside from his Game 3 outlier of yielding six goals on 22 shots, the MI native allowed just three pucks to find the back of the net in his other four outings.

The Nashville Predators came out of the gate firing on all cylinders.

Carrie stood by her man and prior to the Predators-Winnipeg Jets series, it was thought to be a dead even series, to the point it was destined for Game 7. The defense had a lot of shots with no traffic in front. "They were blocking the ones they needed to block and our details were right". What we were trying to do in front of him was just get bodies, get sticks, let him see things.

Then the Jets scored the game's first goal for a sixth consecutive playoff game.

"It's going to be a long series".

"We have good finishers here", Maurice said.

Maybe Winnipeg never spent enough time in the Predators end to get a glimpse at the face behind the mask or notice that the goalie had shrunk six inches. The Predators had lot of shots yet only one crossed the red line. "Now pucks have just got to go in".

Connor Hellebuyck (28.1 saves per game) has been the primary option in goal for Winnipeg. The third goal was questionable and there was clear frustration from the start.

Predators Head Coach Peter Laviolette perhaps summed it up best after the game saying, "if you give me two choices, our game or the win, I'd take the win". Hellebuyck outdueled veteran Pekka Rinne, who was pulled after the second period after giving up three goals on 16 shots.

Rinne is also a Vezina finalist.

Winnipeg (+155) is entering this one as the underdog to Nashville (-175), and the oddsmakers have set the Over/Under (O/U) at 6 goals. Hellebuyck could see the majority of the shots he faced and that needs to change for Nashville.

After sporting the 14th-ranked power-play unit in the regular season (converting 20.6 percent of all opportunities), the Predators have been able to score on 13.6 percent of their power plays in the postseason. "Otherwise we played pretty good, so I don't think you need to overanalyze that".

"The thing about winning, and I'm sure you ask anybody who's won a Cup, is the steps that it takes to get there", Subban said. He has three assists in seven playoff games, all coming in wins. The Jets haven't lost at home since February 27 — to Nashville. It was only Winnipeg's third shot.

Patrik Laine's shot from the slot rang off of the mask of Rinne, a fellow Finn, and the rebound landed on Stastny's tape outside the crease, where he put it by the fallen goaltender. Then, at 17:51, Blake Wheeler broke into the Press zone, dealt the puck to Mark Scheifele who toe-dragged and on his forehand ripped a perfectly-placed wrister past Pekka Rinne and the Jets were up 3-0. The Winnipeg Jets made the most of their scoring opportunites, netting four goals on only 19 shots.
