New York Rangers: Three lessons to learn from the Golden Knights

New York Rangers: Three lessons to learn from the Golden Knights

But here we are, with the two most intriguing and exciting teams in the National Hockey League playing for a chance to be in the Stanley Cup final. He's such a great goalie, so maybe it's tough on him not playing and being that No. 1 guy.

The Jets next face the red-hot expansion Golden Knights for a spot in the NHL Stanley Cup finals with game one of the best-of-seven series Saturday night.

Where Winnipeg dominated the game on Thursday was in goaltending. "A really good team showed us what happens when you do that".

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.

"Just happy to be here every day and not do summer workouts back home", he said.

After going eight-for-eight in the opening round of the playoffs, I fell off a cliff a bit in the second round, going just two-for-four in my predictions. Tyler Myers, acquired in the Evander Kane deal in 2015, scored the all-important first goal of the game, and Mark Scheifele, the Jets first-ever draft pick, seventh overall in 2011, scored a pair of goals in the win and finished the series with 11 points (7G, 4A). Just under two minutes later Paul Stastny had a couple of whacks at the puck at the side of the net, lifting the second opportunity up and over Rinne, who was ultimately yanked after allowing two goals on seven shots.

The IIHF World Hockey Championships are underway in Denmark and Team Canada seems to be cruising right along. "They're very passionate about our team and about hockey". Both teams were long-shots and now both teams are here.

Stastny sealed the victory with his sixth goal this postseason on the Jets' lone power play at 11:59. Momentum can be a good thing when used properly and given the methodical way the Jets went about game seven and deconstructing the Predators having the chance to do so again might be a positive as the intensity and distractions increase. All the tickets for Saturday were snapped up. They basically took everyone's trash, they won't be able to compete with the California teams.

A win at St Mary's would also break two other records - most away wins in a season and most away points in a season . The fans, all the time, have shown love. "I'll be back for sure".

Wheeler isn't buying that label. Both teams are entering uncharted territory and both have advanced further into the playoffs than anyone would have expected. I'm sure that Kevin Cheveldayoff and [assistant GM] Craig Heisinger had nights where they wished it would have happened faster, but I had the benefit a year ago of probably seeing the Jets 20 times and it was pretty easy to see that it was going to happen.

Fleury had five days off in between series while Hellebuyck will have had just 48 hours to prepare for one of the fastest and most potent offenses in the league.

Tenacity, speed, lineup depth and great coaching are the reasons why Vegas is still playing, and the same can be said of the Jets. "I think priority one is handling speed, not necessarily the physicality".

However, steady Winnipeg pressure paid off at 17:50 of the second when Blake Wheeler teed up Scheifele in the left circle. They faced a ton of adversity, but bought in and played a strong team game. They were given away free of charge to those selected but were immediately fetching as much as $100 apiece on secondary ticket sites.

Marc-Andre Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup victor with the Penguins, appears to have raised his game with the expansion Golden Knights.

"It is a quick turnaround", Hellebuyck said Thursday night.

With last change for the majority of the series will Maurice opt to try getting some match ups at preferred times?
