  • Success in Vegas frustrating GMs

The Jets begin its series against the Vegas Golden Knights with home games on Saturday and Monday, followed by away games on Wednesday and Friday. Even if the Jets do lose, the victor of this series will finally end the Golden Knights search for the elusive Holy Grail. The total has gone over in seven of Minnesota's last 11 home games against Central Division teams.

Remembering his team is still in the Stanley Cup playoffs will do that.

"We know what they bring, we know that they're good, that they maybe surprised a few teams, but not really", said Paul Stastny, whose Jets advance to the final with a Game 7 victory over the Predators on Thursday night.

Winnipeg forward Kyle Connor scored his first two career playoff goals and added an assist in Game 5 against Nashville to become the first rookie in franchise history to post a three-point game in the playoffs. "The two teams we played were very good hockey teams and we were very evenly matched with those teams".

Winnipeg regained home-ice advantage for the best-of-seven series due to their overall second-place finish with 114 points. Swept the Kings, then beat the Sharks in six ... Fast forward and the Swedish forward scored 43 in the regular season, which was the most by a player for an expansion team and third-most in the entire National Hockey League.


Tallon, looking to undo moves made by the regime that replaced him as GM the previous season, made a deal with the Golden Knights: the Knights would take Reilly Smith and his $5 million contract off his hands, and the Knights would get Jonathan Marchessault in the expansion draft.

The Jets and Knights are similar in the way they play, with Vegas winning two of the three regular-season games between the teams. Trade deadline pickup Tomas Tatar has no points in four games and has been a healthy scratch ... Three Knights, including William Karlsson, have four tallies. Staying out of the box is probably the main thing so we don't give them too many opportunities on the power play. Laine has 47 goals and 33 assists to his name and has recorded a point in 59 games. He has blocked 24 shots overall, second on team to Brayden McNabb's 31 ...

4 - The Golden Knights were the first National Hockey League team to clinch a playoff berth in its debut season since the Edmonton Oilers and Hartford Whalers did so in 1979-80.

GOALTENDING: The Knights have a Cup champion in Marc-Andre Fleury, who leads all playoff goalies with a paltry 1.53 GAA and incredible.951 save percentage. Winnipeg leads the series 2-1. It's only fair and right that it comes down to game 7 in "Smashville", so let's hope the Jets rebound from their dismal performance in game 6 and keep the "Whiteout" crowd alive.
