Winnipeg Jets vs. Vegas Golden Knights series preview

Winnipeg Jets vs. Vegas Golden Knights - 5/12/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Jets have had scouts at the Vegas series vs San Jose. Hey, you win some and you lose some, right?

Jets head coach Paul Maurice was asked on Friday afternoon if anything needed to change after consecutive losses on home ice.

The Golden Knights are in Winnipeg on Saturday night for the start of the Western Conference final against a very strong Jets' team.

Let's get to the picks, shall we?

Golden Knights fever continues to sweep the Las Vegas valley and the nation, causing hockey teams from around the country to country to jump on the bandwagon. It's also a remarkable series given that the Golden Knights are an expansion team.

Vegas' players have been penalized only 3.4 times per game in total this season, and 4.7 per game over their last ten outings. So much for patience with this expansion team, #VegasStrong wants a #CupIn1. So weren't the Sharks, however.

OFFENCE: Centre Mark Scheifele scored seven times in Nashville, establishing an National Hockey League record for road goals in a series.

Patrik Laine, Kyle Connor and Nikolaj Ehlers have combined for three goals and nine assists in the series, but have all faded in and out of the action at various points. The Jets talent in the top-six is simply lethal and almost impossible to defend. Instead of the team that looked crisp with every pass, and sharp with every shot on goal, the Golden Knights were undisciplined and sloppy through the first 40 minutes.

Next up for Fleury and Vegas will be the Western Conference Final against either Winnipeg or Nashville. And while Gallant admitted he didn't like some of the calls against his team, or some of what he felt were missed calls, he also said his players brought a lot of it on themselves.

Vegas is a great team, there is no way around that. Winnipeg has scored 92 goals in the opening frame this year, and with the lead after the initial period, it has a spectacular 30-2-2 record. They lost to Pittsburgh in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final last June.

For comparison, California added 858 megawatts of residential solar previous year from 127,000 new residential solar systems. Currently, California has a law that says 50% of the state's electricity should be coming from non-carbon sources by 2030.

Prediction: Winnipeg in six games.

So as the conference finals begin, allow the Southeast Division the victory lap it so rarely enjoyed during its existence. "They're for real, so it's going to be a real tough matchup". It now has 12 teams. Trivia time, name those two other teams? The Bolts also play with tremendous speed and can transition the puck like no other team in the National Hockey League.

Winnipeg Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck makes a stop against the Nashville Predators during the second period in Game 7 of an NHL hockey second-round playoff series Thursday, May 10, 2018, in Nashville, Tenn. If the depth of both teams is tested during the series, it will be interesting to see which wins out. After being forgotten this season, the Capitals put together arguably their most impressive season in the Ovechkin-era.

"Critics that want to criticize him don't know what they're talking about, I don't care if they played in the National Hockey League or not", Subban said, according to Brady Trettenero of the Nation Network. They're naive and just play and have a lot of fun and it doesn't bother 'em.

This Capitals team has that "it" factor to it. "They're a great mix of responsibility, play hard underneath the puck and they can make some pretty dynamic plays".

True was tucked inside of her baby carriage and a light white blanket was placed over to shield her from the harsh sun. Photos surfacing showed the 33-year-old wearing a leopard print outfit that ultimately screamed for attention.

The '78 Jets not only steamrolled through their season, winning the AVCO Cup in four straight games over Gordie Howe and the New England Whalers, they also became the first North American team to defeat the mighty Soviet national team, without a doubt the strongest team in the world at the time, when they won 5-3 on January 5, 1978, at Winnipeg Arena. The old Jets last played a Game 7 in 1992, losing to Vancouver before bolting for Phoenix to become the Coyotes four years later.
