Predators even series with 2OT win over Jets

The Playoff Tracker ... a daily update of the Stanley Cup Playoffs brought to you by Mark Lonsway - THE real estate professional for hockey fans! The team's had to defend opponent power plays just 6.4 minutes per game over their last five outings. Smith waited, gave Kevin Fiala a sweet feed at the top of the circle and Fiala patiently dumped home a backhand to win it and tie the series. In the 2015 post-season, the Jets were swept in their first-round series against Anaheim.

That lead would last about 5 minutes into the second period when PK Subban blasted home a laser from the high slot, wiring home a power play goal to tie the game.

Predators forward Nick Bonino told reporters there's no great secret to the club's road success.

The road does offer the visiting team a sense of routine. It was the third goal scored against Hellebuyck on only eight shots.

Scheifele scored a pair of goals in each of the games at Nashville.

"We had our chances, they had their chances". But he went through a long stretch in the first half of the year when he was really, really good and he wasn't scoring so there were questions about the quality of his play. He's going to settle down and get back to Vezina form. Just 18 seconds later with the building roaring and Winnipeg again buzzing in the offensive zone, the Nashville defensemen lost contract with Trouba, who pounded the tying goal into an open net before Rinne could even react.

"Our fans are huge". I didn't think there was a reason to panic after losing the first game, and I definitely see no reason for panic with the series tied at one game apiece. I switched to them a few years back and their service has been incredible!

Let me first say that the President's Trophy-winning Nashville Predators are going to swing back in this series. Expect another hard-fought, bump-and-bruise-filled matchup in Game 3 in Winnipeg on Tuesday. Perreault was not wearing the yellow non-contact jersey he had been wearing for the last week.

Gerrard confirms positive talks with Rangers
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. I'm busy now for a couple of days but I will pick it up on Thursday and we'll see if we can progress it".

A trio of Jets nursing injuries participated in an optional morning skate Monday morning at Bell MTS Place.

The other night I was holding my sleeping six-month-old daughter on my chest when Fiala scored his game-winner.

"That's a really good way to put it". I think sometimes when he needs to he does.

After falling behind 3-0, the Jets scored three times in a span of 3 minutes and 21 seconds to pull even early in the second.

"It's pretty much personal. It's too bad we didn't get the win". They got their legs under them in the second, scoring four of their own on route to seven total goals. Two of those sealed overtime victories for the Jets.

Seven games into his first taste of playoff hockey, he's yet to light the lamp.

"Yeah. You play back a couple of chances throughout the whole game that you had". At the end of the day though you kind of turn the page after. They will need to stay composed in Game 4 and stay out of the box if they want to head back to Nashville at 2-2. The Jets will keep taking advantage of those easy opportunities and scoring four-plus goals per game. Home teams get to sleep in their beds.

Maurice said it's hard to nitpick when the trio is producing. But (we) evaluate the group nearly as the line. "So, Connor hasn't scored but Mark Scheifele clearly has", he said. The FiST line had the game victor, the JoFA line generated three goals and five assists... the big guns came to play. While Dumolin said he didn't see Wilson coming because he was bracing for a hit by Alex Ovechkin, Wilson claimed Dumolin turned his head just before impact leaving Wilson with no time to react. As the game gets bigger, I feel he wants to be out there and make an impact.
