WestJet adding nonstop flights to Vegas during Jets playoff run

Golden Knights Grinch

At this point I'd say that I don't think Vegas will beat either the Winnipeg Jets or the Nashville Predators in the Conference Finals, but they have already proven me wrong over and over. Documenting that ride has been official team photographer Jeff Bottari, who has endeavored to be unique and proactive in chronicling the Knights' inaugural year.

Hockey fans across Manitoba are being encouraged to support the team by boarding a flight to Las Vegas, Nevada for the start of the semifinals.

Just days before the Golden Knights official home opener, Las Vegas was the scene of the worst mass shooting in US history when a gunman opened fire a short distance from their T-Mobile Arena home killing 58 people.

"We had to go through a little adversity early in the season and then we hit our stride and have been playing with confidence ever since", Jets forward Blake Wheeler said. While the whole team impressed by showing their resilience against the playoff battle-hardened Sharks, the Marchessault-Karlsson-Smith line once again showed that they're almost unstoppable.

After losses Saturday, the and Golden Knights will be happy just to reclaim home-ice advantage. "The two teams we played were very good hockey teams and we were very evenly matched with those teams".

This was the first Game 7 for the Winnipeg/Atlanta franchise, and the Jets dominated the Predators to win in Nashville for the third time in the series.

The series also pits two hot goaltenders against each other in Jets Connor Hellebuyck and veteran Marc-Andre Fleury, who's been in 125 playoffs games compared to Hellebuyck's 12. Now, he and the team are laughing at all of us.

"I thought we had a couple of opportunities for power plays, we didn't get them", Gallant said.

Wheeler, of the United States, said he is looking forward to continuing their playoff run in Winnipeg, which has some of the most loyal and loudest fans in the league. It's easy to argue now that the expansion draft rules may have favored the Knights a little too much (one general manager told TSN it was like he was "held hostage" by the Knights during the process), but no analysts were giving the Knights much of a chance when the season started.

Both goals were scored while the Jets players were standing partly below the goal line. What's more, they tied the 1977-78 Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association for the longest expansion win streak (8). Other teams gifted the Golden Knights draft pick inventory to steer them away from or toward certain unprotected players. Their first home games will be a double header on Sunday, June 3 at 1:00 and 6:00 p.m. when the Souris Cardinals and the Wawanesa Brewers come to town.

Smith and Marchessault formed two-thirds of the Golden Knights' dominant first line and have led the team in playoff scoring with 11 points each through 10 games. If they had a fighting chance out of the gate would they have moved?

The SWBL has released their schedule and the Virden Oilers see their first action on the road as they go to Elkhorn and Reston on May 23 and 25, respectfully.

Likewise, the Jets have to be hoping Laine finds some semblance of his incredible regular season.

"It's just one game", Burns said. I think Ehlers has his moment in the sun this round helping the Jets advance.

"Specifically, outstanding transition and speed", Jets coach Paul Maurice said of the Golden Knights. This series belongs to the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are a complete team in every facet of the game.
