Jets land in NHL West finals

Jets land in NHL West finals

Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb, left, and Winnipeg Jets right wing Patrik Laine compete for the puck during the first period of an NHL hockey game Friday, Nov. 10, 2017, in Las Vegas. When they meet starting Saturday night in Winnipeg in the Western Conference final, it will be a matchup between a team that missed the playoffs a year ago and one that didn't even play. "They had 109 points". "They're very passionate about our team and about hockey". Also defending for the Predators is Roman Josi (59), of Switzerland.

With the Vegas Golden Knights finishing off the San Jose Sharks and moving on to the Western Conference Finals, a growing storm is also moving into view. Marc-Andre Fleury and backup goalie Malcom Subban were out for extended periods of time, and they kept winning.

After cutting more than a half-goal per game off his average this season - 2.89 to 2.36 - his goals-against average in the playoffs is an identical 2.36 through 11 games.

Grabbing the win was Connor Hellebuyck, who stopped 36 of the 37 shots that he faced to improve to 8-4 with a 2.25 GAA and a.927 save percentage in this his first season of playoff action. 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. "You've got to enjoy it". The GM acquired Paul Stastny at the trade deadline this past February, and the 32-year-old veteran had a pair of goals and an assist and now has six goals and 14 points in the post-season.

'Stupid' dropped points ruined Chelsea's season, says Conte
This, in turn, had an effect on the team as Chelsea's dominance in the first half was capped off by the lack of end product. It's down to the whole team for the defensive work we did today, they didn't have a lot of chances.

OFFENCE: Centre Mark Scheifele scored seven times in Nashville, establishing an National Hockey League record for road goals in a series.

The Jets were led in scoring by Paul Stastny, who notched two goals and one assist for three points. Goalie Connor Hellebuyck has had his moments when he has struggled in the playoffs, but manages to be there when his team needs him most.

"Some of his best performances are things none of us get to see and really happen inside the dressing room and on the plane and sitting beside the players - just the experience he has", said Cheveldayoff. Florida gave away Reilly Smith in a salary move so Vegas would agree to take Jonathan Marchessault. You feel good, first shot of the game, you make a good save on the wraparound. The Knights - largely made up of players deemed expendable last June - are playing for every kid picked last in the schoolyard.

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. If they do indeed steal Game 1, they'll basically be playing for the series in Game 2 knowing they could return home up 2-0 with three home games in the bag. He allowed five or six goals on seven occasions in the regular season and came back with a win in the next game in six of those games. Hellebuyck won his first three starts and never relinquished his hold on the job.
