Stanley Cup playoffs: Predators shut out Jets, force Game 7

Stanley Cup playoffs: Predators shut out Jets, force Game 7

Updates with new lead.

The Predators and Jets were on a collision course toward a second-round matchup for months, so it's only fitting that the NHL's best two teams will need a Game 7 to decide the victor of this compelling second-round series.

The final tally would come on an empty netter by Arvidsson at 15:58 of the final period, and the Predators would seal the game at 4-0.

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

"But I guess we're just saving it up for Game 7". Ryan Johansen with two assists, Arvy with two goal sand an assist, and Forsberg with two goals and an assist.

The Predators led 2-0 entering the third period of Game 6.

"It's the most fun", Forsberg said. "When [you] start playing hockey at five years old, you have that expectation".

"You just have to enjoy it and have no regrets". Game 7 will be played on Thursday night in Nashville. Win in game seven or it'll be all over until October. Teams that score first in Game 7 are 126-44 (.741), although the Maple Leafs lost to the Bruins after scoring the first goal of the game. "It's probably right that it's going seven".

"The fact of the matter is, we had to go to Winnipeg anyway", he said.

Forsberg would give Nashville a 3-0 lead at 5:55 of the third period with one of the nastiest between the legs shot for the score that totally fooled Hellebuyck.

After breaking his stick in the defensive zone blocking a shot, the Swedish winger raced to the bench to collect a new piece of lumber as the puck nearly simultaneously arrived at his feet.

The Swedish star received a pass in front of the net from linemate Viktor Arvidsson, and what he did with it was absolutely incredible.

Winnipeg had made an earlier push coming out of the first intermission, with Paul Stastny's shot just wide being the best chance after Mathieu Perreault's dump in hit the linesman and caromed into the slot. Stastny also missed from a tight angle off the boards on the follow up on Rinne.

Connor, a rookie, scored the first two playoff goals of his career and set up another, while Laine (one assist) and Ehlers (two assists) had their moments. "This is the best group of guys that I've ever played with".

"What makes him unique is he can, I don't know if "take over" is right, but he can make an impact in a game in just about every single way possible", Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. In Game 1 they gave up two goals in an eight-minute stretch in the second period that proved to be the difference in a game the Predators absolutely dominated on the shot chart. "You can't really compare him to anyone out there".

"I think it's the character on our team", Josi told reporters in Nashville Tuesday afternoon. The Jets took the day off and planned to travel to Nashville on Wednesday.

The on-ice officials called it off saying that he hit it with a high stick, but after review it was determined to be a good goal.

The No. 3 Jets slip one place from a week ago but this young, deep and fast-skating squad is just one win away from reaching the Western Conference final for the first time in the city's history.

The deciding Game 7 of the Jets-Preds series will take place Thursday back in Nashville.

Notes: Teemu Selanne, a member of the original Jets from 1992 to 1996, was in attendance. But there have been an bad lot of seven game series that have happened in the history of the National Hockey League, and somebody was up 3-2 in every single one of them.
