What a rough series this was for Pekka Rinne. He scored two goals last night with seven shots before entering the field after 10:31 minutes. He was also hunted out of Game 1 and Game 5, as the Jets apparently found him out for a good part of this series. It's not that Juuse Saros struggled with the Jets on Thursday. After Saros had taken over for Rinne, he allowed with 16 shots two goals.
At the other end of the ice, Connor Hellebuyck made 36 of 37 Predator shots. This is the first playoff of the 24-year-old's career and it was a great run for him. The Jets probably would not have done the playoffs without his strong regular season play, and they would not have passed Nashville without his continued contributions.
P. K. Subban scored the only goal of the Predators. By the time the game was in favor of Winnipeg late in the first half, there was some hope that the marker could turn the tables, but of course that did not happen.
Paul Stastny scored two goals including the winner and registered a support. He has up to six goals and 14 points in 12 playoff competitions. Among other things, the Jets made a first round to get Stastny out of St. Louis, but they must be satisfied with the results.
Mark Scheifele also found twice the back of the net for the jets. That brings him to 11 goals and 16 points in 12 postseason games.
Blake Wheeler assisted on two of Winnipeg's five goals. That gives him three goals and 15 points in 12 playoff contests.
Kyle Connor registered two assists last night. He has two goals and eight points in twelve games with five of these points in his last three competitions.
The Jets will not get a big break as their series against Vegas will start on Saturday at 19.00. ET.
