Winnipeg Jets vs. Vegas Golden Knights series preview

Winnipeg Jets strike first, down Vegas in Western Conference opener

The Golden Knights are a +125 underdog, while the over-under is set at 6 goals. They did struggle at home in that series and that could come into play here, especially since they are a exhausted bunch, while the Golden Knights will be well rested.

Jets coach Paul Maurice was justifiably happy after knocking out the Presidents Trophy winners with three victories in enemy territory.

"I can't. I don't really have any comments on that".

"I feel very much responsible for our season ending at this point", a despondent Rinne told a scrum at his locker stall. "Paul Stastny was the right fit". As hockey's hottest team, Vegas has yet to disappoint when it matters most, winning their first two post-season series by sweeping the L.A. Kings then finishing off the San Jose Sharks in six games. "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.

"And you know what?" A quality person, we knew that from our due diligence in the past. The Lightning will win this series over the Capitals but it will take them seven games to do it.

It's about 1,600 miles away from the Las Vegas Valley, but this weekend all eyes in southern Nevada will be on Winnipeg as the Golden Knights take on the Winnipeg Jets in the Western Conference Final.

"With the hockey win, we wanted to provide other options for hockey enthusiasts looking to catch a game and also enjoy Vegas for all that it offers", said spokesperson Lauren Stewart. We'll continue to play with confidence in here. As you get older, you realize how hard it is to win.

Even by their owner's pre-season optimistic estimation, the Golden Knights are way ahead of schedule.

Winnipeg regained home-ice advantage for the best-of-seven series due to their overall second-place finish with 114 points.

California considers historic plan to require solar panels on new homes
About 117,000 new single-family homes and 48,000 multi-family units will be built in 2020, the commission estimates . This would make California the first state in the country to require solar panels on homes, according to the CEC.

Stastny finished with a second goal and an assist, and Mark Scheifele also had two goals.

4 - At the end of the second round, the four leading scorers in the playoffs have all been eliminated: Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel and Sidney Crosby with 21 points, and Boston's David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand with 20 and 17 points. Both teams were long-shots and now both teams are here.

"There are some die-hards that if they came from Winnipeg, you're not converting them at this point", Brooks said. So far in the playoffs, the Quebec native has played even better. "They're for real. So it's going to be a real tough matchup". Backup to the backup goalie Oskar Dansk got hurt, and they just kept winning. "But you want to try to contain them as much as you can". Of the remaining four teams left in the National Hockey League playoffs, there may not be a better candidate for the Conn Smythe Trophy then Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

This will be the first Game 7 for the Jets/Atlanta Thrashers, who moved to Winnipeg in 2011. They've gotten to the third round playing only 10 games, and everything looks good for them so far. Very similar in terms of ours. I think we've been doing that, for the first round and the first game of.

"Game 7 is a different animal", he said. "And they've been extremely successful".

"We got a little too confident after Game 1, we came out a little slow in Game 2 and we just have to fix that and focus on a good start for Game 3", Golden Knights defenseman Shea Theodore said.

"Specifically outstanding transition and speed". The mighty Canadiens swept them for the Cup.

Fleury had five days off in between series while Hellebuyck will have had just 48 hours to prepare for one of the fastest and most potent offenses in the league. There will be contact for sure in the zones, but that won't be the story.
