  • Winnipeg Jets and Las Vegas Golden Knights to talk ahead of series opener

Prediction: Washington in seven games. Or least the predictable part.

But let's get real, the reason medieval maniacs are venturing north this week is the hockey, and even though Winnipeggers love their Jets, Schaubroeck said they'll still be typically Canadian: polite to visitors, even those sporting the black and gold. There's a finality coming.

Winnipeg is averaging 3.4 goals per game in its past five games (the team's a flawless 0-0 SU during that span).

"Simplicity", Maurice added when asked what will finally decide the razor-thin margin.

No team with Sidney Crosby should be written off and the parity-driven nature of the National Hockey League might lead some bettors to believe Washington can not win twice in a row in Pittsburgh. The Stanley Cup Playoffs continue into the third round Friday night as the Eastern Conference Final begins.

The Golden Knights have been resting for nearly a week, after their six game elimination of the San Jose Sharks in round two.


The speedy, youthful Jets have looked unstoppable at times only to be brought back to earth by the battle-tested Predators each time they've nosed in front. He has also posted eight wins, with four shutouts, in 10 games to help propel Sin City to the conference final.

The Jets this season have registered the 11th-most hits per game (22.8), but that number has risen to 27.4 over their last five home games. "We know (the Jets) are going to come out strong and we're excited to see the atmosphere too", said Golden Knights forward David Perron, who scored the overtime victor against the Jets on February 1. "He's such a good guy you sometimes talk more of the person than you do how good of a goalie he is", said veteran Vegas left-winger James Neal. Vegas had a long layoff after the first round and beat the Sharks 7-0 in Game 1 of the next series.

This will be the first Game 7 for the Jets/Atlanta Thrashers, who moved to Winnipeg in 2011.

Averaging 28.3 saves per game with a.924 save percentage, Connor Hellebuyck (52-27-10) has been the primary option in goal for the Jets this year. Byfuglien's 18 penalty minutes are the most among surviving players ... "We're going to get our rest, we're going to enjoy tonight and get back to it. Rest is a weapon, but I think the way we battle in this room, I think we're prepared for anything". "Scars make you a little bit tougher". He is the front-runner on this Jets roster to win the Conn Smythe trophy. The trio has combined for 16 goals and 39 points in 12 playoff games so far.

The lightning-quick Ehlers has struggled to get through a congested neutral zone, while Laine and Connor have probably deserved passing grades for their performances. Fiala had three goals, including the Game 2 game-winner in double overtime of the second round. And Fleury's current playoff penchant for blanking the opposition has him in position to accomplish something rare. I can tell you one thing, this would not have been tolerated 20 years ago because the players themselves would have policed this vulgar, grotesque action in their own special way, if you know what I mean (wink.wink). During Thursday night's game, the interest spiked, she said.
