Jets fans in Nashville soaking in game 7 excitement

After six games, it comes down to this.

Nashville has played twice before in a Game 7, winning one and losing another.

The Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators meet Thursday in game seven of the NHL Western Conference Second Round Playoffs at the Bridgestone Arena. The Oilers were ousted 2-1 in the seventh game of a second-round series against Anaheim. That team has won almost 75 percent of the time (126-44) in Game 7s all-time.

It may make a difference, and it may not matter.

This series has featured many lineup changes for the Predators. It's not about run-and-gun with them.

His numbers in the Jets' series are not that impressive. In the playoffs, Rinne owns a postseason save percentage of.907 and a goals-against average of 2.94.

Eliminating the regular season's top team might have been a springboard to a title if Montreal didn't lose goaltender Carey Price to a knee injury in the opener of the conference final against the New York Rangers. Pekka Rinne yields 2.94 goals per game.

Conversely, Connor Hellebuyck holds the advantage in goaltending statistics in this series. Filip Forsberg scored two highlight reel goals, and now has 15 points (seven goals, eight assists) in 12 post-season games. No one is doubting that fact.

The Predators need to reproduce their efforts from Games 4 and 6, when their stifling defense frustrated the Jets. Stopping him will be essential to a Nashville victory.

Through six games, shots (177-177) and attempts (338-338) are deadlocked at even strength, with the Jets holding the slightest edge in high-danger attempts (66-65) according to naturalstattrick.com.

"I think it's probably going to be the most important game of my life so far", Laine told reporters Thursday morning. Being on the road is a different mentality.

"Last game we were against the wall and had to deliver". "We can't let it". Forsberg stayed onside, fought off Jets defenceman Ben Chairot and beat Hellebuyck shortside before crashing into the net. The Predators should win this game.

"They now get to go in and just play and have fun and see what they can make happen."
"The momentum swings can be big and it's who can handle it the best". Game time is 7pm...

The way the six games have gone thus far it is very hard, if not impossible to choose what will happen in tonight's game. The road teams are a combined 4-2 in the series.

"You always want to play with the lead", Predators forward Ryan Johansen said.

That requires them to score first and play with a lead, which they haven't done much at home.

We just don't know what that will be. YET. Hellebuyck gave up three goals in a 4-0 home loss Monday night, turning this into a winner-take-all game for the right to play Vegas in the conference final.
