Stanley Cup playoffs: Jets eliminate Predators

Stanley Cup playoffs: Jets eliminate Predators

While not quite as dramatic, the younger Stastny provided a performance on Thursday that Winnipeg fans won't soon forget.

The Winnipeg Jets beat the Nashville Predators 5-1 in Game 7 of their Stanley Cup playoff series to advance to the Western Conference finals. "But it's our job as older guys, veteran guys, to go out there and try to be loose and make everyone comfortable".

It was a streak that roughly coincided with the acquisition of veteran forward Paul Stastny from St. Louis at the trade deadline. He took a handoff from Nikolaj Ehlers before skating toward the net.

"There's a different kind of speed and different kind of transition in this series and it doesn't lend itself to the play as often along the walls", Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice said. "His hockey sense is just off the charts on how to play under guys, when to get above them, when to make a play, when to not make a play". That was the first goal Saros had allowed in four appearances this postseason.

"I like it", Hellebuyck said.

Tyler Myers was the first player to light the lamp. Kyle Connor and Blake Wheeler each had two assists.

"Just happy to be here every day and not do summer workouts back home", he said. He lasted just 10 minutes, 7 seconds for the quickest exit by a starting goalie in a Game 7.

P.K. Subban replied for the Predators. Just as he crossed the goal line in the corner, Myers wobbled an innocuous looking shot between Pekka Rinne and his left post.

Rinne was then pulled out of the game and swapped for Juuse Saros.

"I feel very much responsible for our season ending at this point", Rinne said. "That's tough to swallow". "But night's like tonight, you try to really soak it in and enjoy it". "Then back to business".

In the previous two games in Winnipeg, the Predators scored first and shut down the neutral zone to protect their leads, and it proved successful in each attempt.


Stastny added another score 2:06 later to increase the lead to 2-0 in the frame.

"Total ups and downs throughout the playoffs", Rinne said.

They have eyes on an even bigger prize after finishing second in points in the regular season and eliminating the Presidents' Trophy-winner Nashville.

Subban started the rally with his fourth power-play goal of this series with a big one-timer from Ryan Johansen over Hellebuyck's stick at 15:54.

The Jets, who only got one shot on Saros the rest of the first after Rinne was pulled, had a couple of opportunities in the second when both Stastny and Bryan Little were stopped from in close. "And then, wake up and get ready for a big game on Saturday".

In a series which saw each game deliver a different storyline, no team could take advantage of home-ice, with the road teams winning five of the seven games overall in the series, including Thursday night's contest in Nashville.

"Winnipeg" in the seventh match out "Nashville" and became the last participant of the third round of the Stanley Cup.

The Jets win game seven in Nashville, Mark Scheifele sets an NHL record and we're still playing hockey in Winnipeg in May!

"The coffee tastes great this morning", Wheeler said at a Friday afternoon press conference.

Notes: The Predators had 16 players in the lineup with at least one Game 7 under their belt.
