Las Vegas Golden Knights vs. Winnipeg Jets 5/12/18, Prediction & Odds

An average audience of three million tuned in to see the Jets beat the Predators 5-1 and advance to the NHL Western Conference final for the first time.

Where Winnipeg dominated the game on Thursday was in goaltending.

Thousands of Jets fans ringed the blocks around Bell MTS Place for whiteout street parties at home games, but some changes have been made for the next series.

"It was maybe a little bit of a shock, but I'm proud of our team, our organization, the way they did things here", he said. But there was no intention of stopping there. That could be a reflection of teams having greater trust in young players arriving from junior hockey or college, or the need to stock rosters with cheap talent as a greater percentage of the salary cap is devoted to the elite. This year, the team's 36-11 SU at home. This is the same league of GMs that wouldn't offer sheet Nikita Kucherov, who just finished 3rd overall in points because it might rock the boat and hurt another teams feelings. They were predicted to finish in the basement of the league when the season began, and who could blame anybody for saying so?

A tap of the stick to Nathan Walker, who made his playoff debut for the Capitals in the series-clinching game six, thereby becoming the first Australian to play in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"We hope he continues to do it obviously, and hope the team does that [too]".

MGM Resorts also owns the WNBA franchise the Las Vegas Aces which will start playing at the MGM's Mandalay Bay. Marc-Andre Fleury has allowed 17 goals in 10 games, for goodness sake, and has emerged as a legitimate Conn Smythe contender at the age of 33. Backup to the backup goalie Oskar Dansk got hurt, and they just kept winning. Chicago was the only team to pull off the double in 2013, which was a lockout-shortened season.

Along they way, they had set basically any set record there was to be set as an expansion team in its first season.

The series is expected to highlight speed and not be as physical as Winnipeg's clash with the Predators.

They fill the utensil with boiled rice with small iron wires and fool people by pulling the rice towards the magnet-coated plate. These are cons who allegedly duped a Delhi-based businessman of Rs. 1.43 crore claiming they worked for NASA.

It's an inaugural season no one saw coming, but a Cinderella story that will be forever remembered, regardless of its ending.

The Golden Knights exposed this weakness in the first round with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. Vegas ended up with 109 points in what's been called a fairytale campaign for an expansion team. Vegas has lost only once on the road in the postseason. The Jets and Knights split their season series 1-1-1 so expect these games to be tight, simply because that's how they played in the regular season.

This will be Cameron's 10th coaching job since taking the Summerside Western Capitals all the way to the 1989 Centennial Cup final in Summerside, before losing 4-1 to the Thunder Bay Flyers.

Celebrate McPhee and Vegas, but understand that no National Hockey League expansion team even had a chance to set this precedent. No side has any significant advantage over the other, but the advantages are there. That's even better than their regular season tally of 22-14-5 on the road.

"With every round, you have to elevate your game, your intensity, everything, and we didn't", Cooper said.

"I don't think that is a better team than us over there, but it didn't go our way", said Subban.

Expect the best series we have seen in these playoffs, but unfortunately one of these wonderful stories ends here. NBC will broadcast the matchup, which gets going at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 12.

Vegas seems to score a lot on due to their neutral zone counterpunch and a tenacious forecheck, the Jets seem to score in almost every way you can.

One interesting storyline that those in Winnipeg will know is that prior to the season TSN broadcast and former Winnipeg Free Press columnist Gary Lawless took a job with the Golden Knights as there director of communications and doing game day media.
