Predators host Jets in monumental Game Seven

Winnipeg Jets vs. Nashville Predators, 5-10-2018 - Pick and Prediction City of Clarksville to host Nashville Predators Viewing Party, Thursday

It'll just be on the Predators tonight to clinch another Western Conference final berth.

Nashville has already been victorious once in a must-win situation in this series, taking Game 6 in Winnipeg by a 4-0 final after suffering a 6-2 defeat in Game 5. The Preds edged the Jets 117 points to 114 for the President's Trophy and the Central Division title. "Defense is the biggest factor".

The Jets have lost the opportunity to finish it in Game 6 as the Predators clobbered them. "Hopefully we get a lot of goals, but it might be one or two goals that wins it and we need to find those". Calle Jarnkrok also drew in for Nashville on the fourth line with Mike Fisher after sitting out the last three. Oddly enough, though, in a series between two teams with 60 combined wins on home ice, it's been the road team who has often been able to remove the flash from their game and emerge victorious.

Forsberg's seven goals and 15 points lead the Predators in postseason scoring, followed by Ryan Johansen with 13 points and Viktor Arvidsson with nine points. P.K. Subban scored a goal to cut the lead to 2-1 with 4:06 left in the period. Winnipeg's top line of Blake Wheeler, Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele had eight points in Game 5. Byfuglien, Stastny and Brandon Tanev have each found the back of the net on four occasions.

Of Canada's seven National Hockey League teams, six have lost their most recent Game 7, and some have done it in dagger-to-the-heart, eye-rolling style.

Hellebuyck's stats include a 2-1 record in Nashville in this series, which will end with the only Game 7 in this year's conference semifinals.


Nashville Head Coach Peter Laviolette is 5-2 all-time in Game 7 in his career, while Jets Head Coach Paul Maurice is 2-0 all-time in Game 7.

There have been 170 previous Game 7s in Stanley Cup playoff history.

The current Jets franchise, which moved from Atlanta in 1999, will play a Game 7 for the first time Thursday. The road team has also won six of the last 11 games sevens, so blindly backing the home team in these type of games isn't going to work like it does in the National Basketball Association.

It looked like the series might be done in that moment, with the Jets celebrating on the Bridgestone Arena ice for the second time with a trip home to the biggest home ice advantage in the league for a chance to close it out.

Sports.com and the NBC Sports app - NBC Sports Group's live streaming platforms for desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs - will provide live streaming coverage of Game 7. All fans in attendance will receive a Gold rally towel presented by Jaguar Land Rover Nashville.

The Jets have no shortage of offensive firepower and haven't lost back-to-back games after being shutout once this season.
