  • Winnipeg Jets strike first, down Vegas in Western Conference opener

"But what he can bring inside a room, until you have a player, someone like that who can provide those experiences, you don't really appreciate until you have".

And while the enjoyed six days off after eliminating New Jersey in five games, it was Boston that looked sharper after winning an emotional Game 7 at home against Toronto three nights prior.

Vegas and Winnipeg open their Western Conference finals series at 4 p.m. today in Canada with the Golden Knights a small underdog to reach the Stanley Cup in their first season.

It's nearly awesome that the Jets have come this far with their three top goal scorers combining for just five goals in 12 games, but when you have players like Scheifele, Stastny and Wheeler stepping up they way they did, the pressure is off the youngsters.

The longtime hockey announcer who does games for NBC said a hot goalie can carry a team at times, and told co-hosts Jim Litke and Tim Dahlberg on the "PodcastOne Sports Now" show that Fleury had some big moments in his 14 years in Pittsburgh before being left unprotected in the expansion draft before the season began. We'll continue to play with confidence in here.

Prediction: Washington in seven games. For starters, just about everyone had a chip on his shoulder - including the head coach. Connor, who scored nine goals over his last 13 regular-season games, had two assists in the Jets' 5-1 victory over the Predators in Game 7.

Before the season started it would've made no sense, but it makes flawless sense now with how both teams played all season and in the playoffs. We have too much history with our Central Division rivals. (The Capitals tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs, only a year after being the best team in the National Hockey League and facing them in a 1 vs 8 matchup).

"There are some die-hards that if they came from Winnipeg, you're not converting them at this point", Brooks said.

Above all, though, glass-half-full types pointed to the guy in net as reason to be excited. So far in the playoffs, the Quebec native has played even better. This season, though, they've been pretty evenly matched, with the Caps going 1-1-1.

They're contributing in various ways, including with secondary scoring and a freedom from the past playoff failures that became a burden for Capitals veterans. "But you want to try to contain them as much as you can".

But Maurice certainly has a great deal of respect for the job Gallant has done.

Both teams have first-year phenoms who can't be overlooked. By taking away time and space to make a clean outlet, Vegas forces a turnover in the neutral zone.

Particularly at the top of the lineup, where the unlikely trio of Jonathan Marchessault, Reilly Smith, and William Karlsson has teamed up to obliterate all reasonable projections we may have had based on their individual historical outputs prior to this year. Very similar in terms of ours. "I think priority one is handling speed, not necessarily the physicality". Rinne, who was coming off a 34-save shutout in Game 6, would watch 23-year-old Juuse Saros the rest of the night.

"I tried a little different things", said Fleury. "And they've been extremely successful". Scoring first in Game 7 wasn't imperative, but it's something the Jets wanted, and they got it thanks to Tyler Myers.

"They're good. They're obviously one of the best lines out there", said Fleury.

A lot of the buzz concerning this series is about Alexander Ovechkin and other Caps forwards going up against a talented Tampa forward line that includes Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov - not to mention the very talented Victor Hedman on defense. Once considered castoffs, this top line has carried their team all the way to the final four.
