Fitting for tight Predators-Jets series to go distance

Fitting for tight Predators-Jets series to go distance

The Jets poured cold water on the theory that the moment ended up being too big for them to rise to the occasion. Arvidsson briefly complained to the referee before getting back in the slot just in time to make a defensive deflection of a blast from Josi that looked destined to hit him directly in his head as he dropped to the ice.

Even all of the underlying numbers - even-strength shots and chances - are a dead heat, what you get when you pit the NHL's No. 1 and No. 2 regular season teams against each other in a series for the sixth time in league history.

No team has strung together two wins in a row.

"I think the powerplay is probably just a microcosm of the way we played".

Captain Blake Wheeler said he and his teammates are excited about the possibility of clinching a series on home ice in front of another "White Out" with more than 15,000 fans decked out in white plus more than 20,000 others expected to be outside at the street party.

NOTES: The extra day before Game 7 is due to a Justin Timberlake concert at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night. The hockey world outside of Winnipeg should rejoice because we will be treated to a Game 7 in what has been one of the most memorable series in recent history.

Whoever it is will take on the Vegas Golden Knights, who continued their Cinderella story on Sunday night by conquering the San Jose Sharks 3-0 to take their series 4-2. Game coverage starts at 8:30 on the Preds Radio Network and NBCSN. "It's going to be a lot of fun". What an honor to be on HNIC! "They're a good team over there and they came out and played a good game, really good defensive game, and gave us some trouble".

"I think we need to recognize that and understand when we're all on the same page, that's how we can execute on a daily basis". We're gonna go to Winnipeg. We would have liked to be a little better for sure, but it's just one of those nights it wasn't going for us. While there's not much data on it from this past season - because, well, Rinne played so well he was only pulled once - his career can help give us an idea how the Nashville netminder bounces back. "It's that simple." What do you expect the man to say?

SlapShot Radio's tenth anniversary season is on.

The NHL returned to Winnipeg in 2011 when the Atlanta Thrashers relocated to the Manitoba capital, but the new Jets' first foray into the playoffs in 2015 resulted in a four-game ouster in the first round at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks. We got pretty good men here, too. 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.
