Preds fans stand out in Winnipeg's Game 6 'white out'

The Nashville Predators forced a Game Seven after dominating the Winnipeg Jets on the road last night.

The Jets would have likely been down more than two entering the third if not for some stellar play from goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.

And on Monday night, they did exactly that with a 4-0 win over the Winnipeg Jets on the road.

"He's just calm. He doesn't get too high, too low".

The second period featured a much better start from the Jets, as many early scoring opportunities arose, but Winnipeg was once again unable to capitalize. It was Rinne's fifth playoff shutout. If the Jets choose to give him a breather, however, the team could turn to Steve Mason (5-9-9 record, .907 save percentage, 3.15 goals against average). Even better has been his performance in games after a loss in the playoffs.

The teams with the two best records in the National Hockey League in 2017-18 combined for 41 goals in five regular-season meetings, and 25 more to open this series before Nashville clamped down Thursday. The Jets won Game 3 at home, but then lost at Bell MTS Place with an opportunity to go up 3-1.

Couldn't say it better myself. "It's Game 7, '" he said.

And how did he do in those games? If he had scored there, Stastny said, the game would have been a different story.

"This has nothing to do with that". "Just try to maybe do it in practice and stuff like that and once in a while you get time and space for it in a game, you try to pull it off".

"They played a good game tonight, got out to that lead and it's just tough to come back", Jets captain Blake Wheeler said.

It has clearly been nagging at Maurice since last Thursday. Then, in the all-important Game 6, Nashville kills off three straight penalties in the opening period, coming out of the frame with a stunning 1-0 lead. Both teams are extremely hard to beat, let alone twice.

"Does it make any sense?"

We asked Maurice how he'll coach this team over the next two days? The loser goes home to ponder what might have been. You would think that. "We're going to do everything we can to make sure we look the way we want to look in Game 7".

"Yeah, sometimes less is more", Stastny said. The highlight reel score would be replayed by the network over and over in disbelief of the announcers calling the game.

Winnipeg Jets' fans celebrate a goal during Stanley Cup playoff action. "You can't stop it". "So the rest of your game has a tendency to slide a little bit. It's probably right that it's goin' seven". If it's without the puck, fine, run your routes faster and faster and faster. With temperatures reaching 31.4 degrees Celsius on Monday, the Jets played the warmest home game since returning to Winnipeg as a franchise.

Scoreless through the first 27 minutes, the teams exploded for six goals in a stretch of just over 10 minutes in the second period.

"We don't change anything", Wheeler said in a quiet Winnipeg locker room following Thursday's defeat.

"They put a lot of pressure on us and we weren't really able to get anything going", Jets winger Mathieu Perreault said.

Granted, this is not something we learned tonight, but it is something that was solidified. "But this power play has been great all year, so I'm not anxious at all".

It took Nashville just six minutes to seal the deal in the third period.

"We're a character group and we have a ton of experience here", he told The Tennessean.
