Jets played a Wicked Game despite not getting the win

  • Predators edge Jets in Game 2 to even series

The Predators got a big night out of their top line, with Filip Forsberg (three assists), Viktor Arvidsson (goal, two assists) and Johansen (two goals) combining for eight points after being held without a point in Game 1. They earned an all-important split in Nashville and now have three of the next five games on home ice.

"We can be upset for 10 minutes and then after that, we've got to get our rest and then get ready for Tuesday".

"It's always great, it always helps our team", Byfuglien said of the 15,321 inside the building and thousands more outside watching the game in the world's biggest hockey block party. I just put one fist up in the air. That makes absolutely no sense to me. P.K. Subban evened the score with a power-play blast at 5:04 of the second period and Arvidsson added his third of the playoffs at 18:41.

Wheeler added an empty-netter, as did third-line left wing Brandon Tanev, to complete the scoring and give the wonderful Jets fans their 13th straight victory at home to celebrate. They lost game one but took a hard-fought win in game two by a score of 5-4 in double-OT. Paul Martin, with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2014, was the last National Hockey League player to do that.

Rinne made 38 saves in Game 3, but for the second time this series and fourth time this postseason, allowed four or more goals (the Predators were 2-1 in those games entering Tuesday).

The Turris line is back, and I expect them to be even more ferocious in Game 3 since it was a pass from Turris to Craig Smith that sprung the game-winning rush. They were actually much better than they were in their 4-1 win in Game 1.

It was just the latest superstar performance for Byfuglien, who has been Winnipeg's best player during this playoff run.

The Jets had a hard time containing Nashville's top line of Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Arvidsson, which accounted for eight points in the game. Head coach of Nashville, Peter Laviolette was upset with several calls in the period. "Tough time, tough break but you know, it happens".

Gerrard reveals talks with Rangers have been "positive"
Rangers have endured a hard recent period and have sacked Murty off the back of a 5-0 defeat to Celtic in the Glasgow Derby. Gerrard, 37, hung up his boots in 2016 after a 12-month stint with LA Galaxy and now manages the Liverpool under-18s.

Jets forward Paul Stastny said that's exactly what's happening.

"That's the way we look at it", he said. "It's too bad we didn't get the win".

Johansen scored the game's first goal just 27 seconds into the opening period. With fans inside Bridgestone Arena still buzzing from Carrie Underwood's rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner", Forsberg found Johansen in the slot, where he fired a wrist shot high to Hellebuyck's glove side.

On the other hand, if Rinne is able to steel himself a little bit, and the trends of the first two games continue, the Jets may be in serious trouble. Ryan was wearing a Predators jersey, but pulled it up to show he had a Winnipeg Jets jersey underneath, which was given to him by Byfuglien. He is getting his shots on net, he just has yet to solve Rinne in this series.

The victory gave the Jets a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference second-round series.

"We totally leave him alone in terms of his decisions with what he does on the offensive side of the puck, but he seems to have shifted now in some of the situations to be a shooter, too". The Jets showed an incredible response after a bad first period and who is surprised that the drivers of the comeback were captain Blake Wheeler (two goals, including the victor, and an assist), Byfuglien and Paul Stastny ... Paul Stastny redirected a Jacob Trouba shot from the point, past what up to that point had been a brilliant Pekka Rinne, to get the Jets on the board.

Nashville finished with a total of 23 shots in regulation.
