The Jets won Game 1 on Friday in Nashville 4-1.

Wheeler, who had a wide-open net but flipped a shot high when the Jets were behind 3-1 early in the third period, made good on the second power play with a shot from a bad angle for the game-winner.

"We can be upset for 10 minutes and then after that, we've got to get our rest and then get ready for Tuesday". They were sitting in the second row at ice level. He sent a saucer pass to Fiala skating through the slot, where he beat Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck with a backhand. Luckily, the game started early enough that most of us were awake when the Preds celebrated their win. "Great play by Kyle (Turris) to chip it (forward)".

And then, just 20 minutes later, my computer was literally shaking along with the building as I tried to type.

He said with the number of people living downtown already climbing, these parties are just another sign of the progress that has been made. Ryan Johansen topped the Nashville scoring burst with a first period goal and a third period tally that gave the team the lead. Scheifele missed a total of 22 games, but still racked up 23 goals and 60 points in 60 games. Paul Martin, with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2014, was the last National Hockey League player to do that. Kevin Fiala, the overtime hero of game two, committed an obvious trip along the boards in the neutral zone.

Watson made it 3-0 with 2:25 left when he took advantage of an awkward Winnipeg change and sniped a shot in off the post for his fifth. "Now we've got to rebound because all of the emotion that goes into tying it late, feeling good about that, losing in double overtime, now you've got to rebound".

Winnipeg now leads the series 2-1 and will come back looking for blood Thursday night in game four at 8:30 p.m.

"They were awesome", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said.

This series is a matchup between two Vezina Trophy finalists in Pekka Rinne and Connor Hellebuyck, though you wouldn't know it given the scores in these games.

"If she's a proud Nashville Predators fan, half as much as she claims to be, she'll have no problem doing a friendly wager", Jericho said during an interview on a local Winnipeg radio station. "We totally leave him alone in terms of his decisions with what he does on the offensive side of the puck, but he seems to have shifted now in some of the situations to be a shooter, too", he said. They're loud. It's always fun to play in front of fans like that. So to come out with a split is big.

Down 3-0 after a poor first period, Winnipeg roared out of the gate in the second to tie it during a frantic three-minute stretch. You can also check out Carrie's take on "The Star-Spangled Banner" online.

The Predators silenced Winnipeg's fans just 4:53 in Tuesday when Fisher poked a loose puck over the goal line for his first of the playoffs after Hellebuyck couldn't squeeze Ryan Hartman's tip of Ekholm's shot from the sideboards.

Byfuglien tied it for the Jets at 12:47.

The Jets outshot and outscored Nashville 16-6 and 4-0, respectively, in the middle frame and took a one-goal lead into the third. "He's built his game this year, so now he's got both sides".

His post-season spark follows up a regular season that included two different upper-body injuries, the first one taking him out of commission for nearly six weeks. With the net still empty, Brandon Tanev, who played hard for every second of the 13 minutes and 38 seconds of icetime he logged, led a rush and scored another empty netter to give the Jets a 7-4 win.
