Why the Jets Can Pay on the NHL Lines
The Jets have somehow found a way to beat the Predators on their home ice in two of the first three games, with the single loss being decided in double overtime. Offensively they were outstanding in Nashville with an average of 4.7 goals, while the home team kept an average of 2.7 per game.
In Game 5 at the Bridgestone Arena, Winnipeg chased the opposing goalkeeper Pekka Rinne after scoring six goals on 26 shots. The jets only need their own keeper, Connor Hellebuyck, to play as he did in games 1 and 5, and they'll have the opportunity to make a splash.
Why The Predators Can Pay On The NHL Lines
As shaky as Rinne did in this postseason, he also came up with clutch benefits when his team needed him the most. In Game 6, he turned down all 34 shots he had faced for his second shutdown of the playoffs, while Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson each scored two goals.
Surprisingly, the Predators have switched games in the last 11 wins and losses they played at the start of the first round, but they worked hard to win the Presidents' Trophy and home advantage for such moments.
Smart Betting Pick
These two teams have been involved in some of the year's most exciting matchups, and this series has not disappointed. If anything, the weather awaits the unexpected, especially after Winnipeg suffered two home wins for the first time since February.
The good news for the Jets is that they have beaten off home defeats in a row with wins in the last two points times that have happened. Take Winnipeg to finish Nashville's run here.
