WinView Games Playbook: Predators vs Jets

Not only did they get 20 shots at Connor Hellebuyck, they outhit Winnipeg 17-9 and won 73 per cent of the face-offs. The Preds are already under the gun following Friday night's loss.

P.K. Subban - He had a solid possession game (41 for, 21 against, 66.1 CF%), but the Predators blueliner was on the ice for three goals against in a 4-1 Game One loss against Winnipeg.

Considering Hellebuyck dispatched the Wild in five games with back-to-back shutout performances, there should be no doubt that he'll be between the pipes to open the Jets' second-round matchup with the Predators. The defense had a lot of shots with no traffic in front. "They were blocking the ones they needed to block and our details were right".

"Minnesota chased (Hellebuyck) in Game 3 and (Hellebuyck) came back and had two straight shutouts", said Jets forward Adam Lowry.

"I think it's going to be a pretty close series score-wise", he said.

"We have good finishers here", Maurice said. "It's gonna be a really tough series and a tight series so I think that's why everyone's so excited about it".

Maybe Winnipeg never spent enough time in the Predators end to get a glimpse at the face behind the mask or notice that the goalie had shrunk six inches.

"Then you get to this and there doesn't look to be a Cinderella story coming out of this, other than Vegas, but that started in August", Maurice said. Hellebuyck, who made his National Hockey League postseason debut in the first round where he finished off Minnesota with back-to-back shutouts, picked up where he left off a week ago.

Heading into the much-anticipated Western Conference semifinal between Nashville and Winnipeg, a lot of talk centred around the high-powered offences that helped the Predators and Jets finish 1-2 in the NHL's overall standings. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 81.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Predators goalie Pekka Rinne was pulled after the second period after giving up three goals on 16 shots. That the Jets and Predators can provide.

Tanev's goal was Winnipeg's fourth and final shot in the first. Hellebuyck could see the majority of the shots he faced and that needs to change for Nashville.

The Predators did not take any satisfaction from their dominance on the shot clock. "I think you can hang your hat on that sometimes in the regular season when you're talking about a process and the long haul and the big picture". "If you win, you win".

"I feel good, my body's right and I have great organization here behind me". Patrik Laine picked up an assist and Winnipeg had a 2-0 lead. The Winnipeg Jets made the most of their scoring opportunites, netting four goals on only 19 shots. "You have some control of it, and you just want to make sure that you execute at the highest level". "I guess that's how hockey goes". "That page is done, you got to turn it and you've got to move onto the next page". "Hands down, I promise a win tonight".

Juuse Saros replaced Rinne at the start of the third period. Of course, stonewalling a Nashville squad that is averaging 3.67 goals in the playoffs will be no easy task for the youngster.

NOTES: Nashville defenseman Ryan Ellis went to the locker room after being clipped on the cheek by the skate of Jets Ben Chiarot early in the third. It was 3-0 going into the final period. Meanwhile, Hellebuyck had now played eight periods - 160 minutes - without allowing a goal. They are professionals and they know for certain they stunk up the 'Stone on this night. "We knew the fans were going to be loud, but it was an exciting game to be a part of, exciting game to listen to that crowd".
