Winnipeg Jets advance to first ever Western Conference Final

Winnipeg Jets advance to first ever Western Conference Final

The Winnipeg Jets overwhelmed the Nashville Predators 5-1 to advance to the Western Conference finals on Thursday night. The Golden Knights beat the Jets in two of three regular season meetings.

The victor of this series will play in the Stanley Cup finals, facing off against the victor of the Washington-Tampa Bay series.

The Jets jumped out to an early lead against the top-seeded Predators in the series decider thanks to the physical play of Paul Stastny, who finished with two goals and an assist.

The other teams to be that dominant on the road were Detroit in the first round against Phoenix in 2010, Chicago in the second round that same year against Vancouver and the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round 1 this year against Philadelphia.

Elias also notes that the Jets, who lost 4-0 at home in Game 6, are the second team in National Hockey League history to rebound from a Game 6 shutout loss at home with a Game 7 win on the road.

Jets center Mark Scheifele made some history of his own. Steven Stamkos of Markham, Ontario leads the Lightning with seven playoff assists. His goal at 10:47 of the first period was his second career series-clincher in a Game 7; the other came with the Blues in the 2016 Western Conference Second Round against the Dallas Stars.

"The telling stat for me in this series is we played four games in here and never lost in regulation".
