  • WinView Games Playbook: Predators vs Jets

The veteran forward agrees the teams nearly mirror each other in statistics, but he tilted the scales a little bit toward Nashville for a couple of reasons.

In the years since that first round series in 2004, which the Preds tied 2-2 before falling in six games, the playoff games have piled up for the Predators. The team that beat them in Round Two in 2011, the Vancouver Canucks, were the Presidents' Trophy winners who then lost in the Cup Final to the Boston Bruins.

"I think there are things we can always do better, " Laviolette said. If anything, they might have an edge on us in some categories. I don't think he has to tell his team anything.

"We have good finishers here", Maurice said. We'd get down early, were a real young team, open our game up, chase the game. "We'd like nothing more than to upset these guys". He has now allowed one total goal in his last three starts.

"If you give me two choices on where to be, our game or their win, I'd take the win", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said.

Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban did not have his best outing in Game 1 as he did not register a point and was minus-3, but he was on the ice for 28:24 and is the clear lead defenseman for his squad. As the road team, Winnipeg is 22-22 SU.

"Yes and no", Ehlers said. He responded to a four-goal, 11-save performance in Game 3 of the first round against Colorado by permitting four markers in the last three games, finishing the series with his fourth career playoff shutout.

Laviolette needs to bury this series opener.

"Then you get to this and there doesn't look to be a Cinderella story coming out of this, other than Vegas, but that started in August", Maurice said.

Players were quick to say they played a well and nearly glossed over that ugly span of 4:49.

Nashville did finally breakthrough on Hellebuyck with a Kevin Fiala goal 1:23 into the third period, but that was as close as they would get.

Rinne is also a Vezina finalist. That Pittsburgh stormed back to win 3-2 seemed to suggest this would be yet another chapter in the long, miserable history for the Capitals against their nemesis; the Penguins have won nine of 10 postseason meetings between the two teams. Nashville scored 267 times for seventh spot.

Winnipeg (+155) is entering this one as the underdog to Nashville (-175), and the oddsmakers have set the Over/Under (O/U) at 6 goals. That's a good team that didn't have a great night, but stole a game thanks to a superb effort from Hellebuyck and a few opportunistic plays.

"Hopefully they'll injure some of the Nashville players to get them out so we can win Round 2", he said.

Captain Blake Wheeler doesn't see anybody taking their foot off the gas, happy with a split. Sophomore sniper Patrik Laine posted a team-high 44 goals, 20 on the power play, and had 70 points.

After sporting the 14th-ranked power-play unit in the regular season (converting 20.6 percent of all opportunities), the Predators have been able to score on 13.6 percent of their power plays in the postseason. Arvidsson has 31 goals and 33 assists to his name and has notched a point in 46 contests.

"Just a lot of skill, a lot of speed and size", he said.
