Winnipeg Jets move closer to Western Conference Final

Crowd gathers for Predators watch party

Winnipeg had scored 15 combined goals to open the Western Conference semifinal - including a wild 7-4 comeback victory in Game 3 - only to see the battle-tested Predators impressively lock things down in Game 4 after taking a 2-0 lead.

The Predators got a goal only 62 seconds into the game on a deflection off a shot from Josi that Arvidsson was able to maneuver into the net.

After yet another disappointing performance in Game Five, the Predators responded great on the road, as they came out of Winnipeg with a 4-0 win.

"Desperation", was how Rinne phrased it to the Associated Press.

We're full-on expecting to play our best game of the season (Monday) night.

"It's the most fun", Forsberg said.

Averaging 28.3 saves per game with a.924 save percentage, Connor Hellebuyck (51-26-10) has been the top option in goal for the Jets this season.

Thanks to Monday's victory, the best road team in the National Hockey League won two of the three games at Bell MTS Place and gave themselves an opportunity to reach the Western Conference final for a second straight spring. The road team won every time.

Ehlers, who scored a career-high 29 goals during the regular season, is having trouble generating offensive chances at his normal rate and is still looking for his first playoff goal. Subban is going to have a hard time reversing the trend of the series, as the Jets have scored seven and six goals coming off of losses in Games 2 and 4 respectively.

"The power play is probably just a microcosm of the way we played", Winnipeg center Paul Stastny said.

"We're just not skating and not moving the puck", Laine said. The other Jets goal scorers were Mathieu Perreault of Drummondville, Quebec and Paul Stastny. He's 3-0 with a goals against average of 2.00 and a save percentage of.940.

The Jets got their fourth power play of the night early in the third, but Scheifele fired wide on the best opportunity.

Sure, it wasn't the best display of goaltending, but any time a player can find the back of the net while going through his own legs is an exciting spectacle.

"I don't think there's any question that Fil's a big-game player", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "You can't imagine what it would be like playing against him".

Arvidsson added an empty netter with 4:02 left in regulation.

Forsberg's second score was absolutely filth in the 4-0 win Monday at Bells MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The speedy winger crashed into the end boards after being taken down by Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien. Officials initially deemed that Arvidsson's stick was above the crossbar but overturned the call upon review.

The Predators will host the Jets for Game 7 on Thursday night.

Subban said after Game 6 that his guarantee was simply a reflection of the team's confidence despite facing the 3-2 series deficit.

Notes: Teemu Selanne, a member of the original Jets from 1992 to 1996, was in attendance.

In game five, the Predators made one line-up change as Kevin Fiala returned to the line-up after a one game absence.
