Adjust Comment Print

After multiple close games decided by a bounce or two, the Jets take a Game 7 on home ice to advance to their first Stanley Cup Finals. Stastny and Scheifele would each light the lamp in the final frame to secure the win and a berth in the Western Conference final for the first time in franchise history. Later, as Alex Ovechkin turned the Capitals into a perennial contender, his teams were dogged by the notion that their path to the playoffs was a cakewalk through overmatched division "rivals".

Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck said, "We know there's a lot more hockey to be played and this is going to be a lot more demanding on our bodies and our chemistry". "We're still in the mix, still playing". "I'm going to go out and play the same way I've been playing all year".

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. He's promised to do so again should the Cup ever make a stop at the city's signature intersection. So before the puck drops Friday night, let's take a look at each series, and what it will take for each team to book their spot in the Stanley Cup Final. "Try to limit them as much as we can".

Some of the 15,000-plus that actually make their way into the building are no doubt borrowing from college funds to do so. I had the Jets and Capitals winning, so thanks to those two, but also had the Bruins and the Sharks. Then they had to wait 15 years for the National Hockey League to return after the painful departure in 1996.

Vegas seems to score a lot on due to their neutral zone counterpunch and a tenacious forecheck, the Jets seem to score in almost every way you can. Vegas matched up with the Kings in the first round and was a popular pick for an upset, then they swept them with little issue.

We're just a few days away from the debut, but Rolls-Royce has made a decision to release a teaser of the Cullinan's taillights. We also know that it has all-wheel-drive and a very tricky stability control system to ensure it's as good off-road as on it.

"It's exciting for the fans. There's other ones that get the starry-eyed, saucer-eyed (look) and they have to sort of work through that", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. Plus, Mark Schiefle is the best player in the National Hockey League no one knows about, and he's got an ability to be a true game breaker.

The 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs haven't been without drama, chaos, and controversy through the first two rounds.


The incredible season continues for the Vegas Golden Knights.

Terry Wall is a lifelong hockey player from Canada who thinks the Vegas Golden Knights could win it all.

"There's a different kind of speed and different kind of transition in this series and it doesn't lend itself to the play as often along the walls", Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice said. And then the Golden Knights went out and played the game with speed and grit that far exceeded their expected norms.

"There'll be contact for sure, as always, but that won't be the story". "Not just losing in overtime, but I didn't like the game that we played the first 40 minutes".

"A Canadian looking at a team down here, they know, if they know hockey and they know their players they know this is a very legitimate team", Wall said.

"There are some die-hards that if they came from Winnipeg, you're not converting them at this point", Brooks said.

The expansion draft was a really fun time last summer for NHL fans and not so much for NHL GMs. Scoring first in Game 7 wasn't imperative, but it's something the Jets wanted, and they got it thanks to Tyler Myers. NBC will broadcast the matchup, which gets going at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 12.
