Predators vs. Jets live stream, Game 2

Predators vs. Jets live stream, Game 2

Outside of Bridgestone Arena sits an old prop plane all decorated with Winnipeg Jets logos (and, in a brilliant troll move, one Atlanta Thrashers stamp). Nashville can not go to Winnipeg down 2-0 so I will look for them to have a strong effort in this one to ensure that they don't. 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. They led the shot battle 12-2 at the halfway point of the first period.

Nashville's offensive attack attempted 32.6 shots per game in the regular season, resulting in 3.3 goals per outing (ranked seventh overall in the NHL).

The Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators hook up for Game 2 of their second-round series Sunday evening at Bridgestone Arena. And that was only reinforced by the fact that it took the two of us 15 minutes to get the hazard lights to stop blinking in our rental vehicle Saturday morning.

Winnipeg's good fortune continued in the second period when Paul Stastny punched in another rebound with the puck awkwardly bouncing in front of the Nashville goal.

The Predators launched 48 shots opposed to the Jets' 19, all for naught. Kevin Fiala's tap-in goal 1:23 into the third period of Game 1 snapped a stretch of just over eight consecutive scoreless periods for Hellebuyck. The Predators had lot of shots yet only one crossed the red line.

Then the Jets scored the game's first goal for a sixth consecutive playoff game. "Everyone's fighting for their ice out there and there are bigger things to do than get into those scrums and both teams understand that". Hellebuyck outdueled veteran Pekka Rinne, who was pulled after the second period after giving up three goals on 16 shots.

Oil prices inch down but supported by Iran concerns
USA crude production C-OUT-T-EIA rose by 46,000 barrels per day (bpd) on the previous week, to 10.59 bpd. Trump is due to announce his decision on whether he will extend the sanction waivers for Iran on May 12.

The incident happened during the third period of San Jose's 7-0 loss to the Golden Knights Thursday in the series opener.

"I think it's going to be a pretty close series score-wise", he said.

During Saturday's media availability, Jets captain Blake Wheeler drew some laughs when he shared that not everyone on the team noticed that Juuse Saros replaced Rinne at the start of the third period. The fourth goal was a empty-net goal. Kyle Connor also added an assist as Winnipeg found itself 20 minutes away from stealing one on the road. "You have some control of it, and you just want to make sure that you execute at the highest level".

"I thought the guys in front of me were allowing me to see shots", Hellebuyck said. Hellebuyck could see the majority of the shots he faced and that needs to change for Nashville. Nashville posted the most points in the league this year, so this team is more than capable of bouncing back from that tough 4-1 loss and I will look for them to do just that.

"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.

Not only did the teams top the standings, this series is the first between clubs with the most combined points ever before a conference finals after Nashville (117) edged Winnipeg (114) for the Presidents' Trophy.
