The Eastern Finals starts Friday night and then every second night.
Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Washington Capitals
The Western Conference Finals starts Saturday.
Vegas Golden Knights will be on the road for games 1, 2, 5, & 7 against the winner of tonight’s game 7.
Currently the Winnipeg Jets have a 4-1 lead over the Nashville Predators.
Less than 3 minutes in 3rd.
No Winnipeg franchise has been past the second round.
Not the last one that turned into Phoenix/Arizona (they haven’t either), and not this one (nor their previous incarnation the Atlanta Thrashers).
5-1 Jets (empty net). 2:33 left.
Over now. Nashville was a good opponent, with a very good goaltender (Rinne), but he can look average at times (happened tonight) while Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck was the better of the two in consistency and every department really.
