National Hockey League playoffs 2018: Live score, updates from Jets vs. Predators Game 1

Darrell Davis: No flaws in NHL playoff format NHL Playoffs 2018: TV Schedule, Odds, Predictions for Friday's Stanley Cup Game

Game 2 in the series goes Sunday at 6 p.m.at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. I know there are people in the East who might disagree with me, and I am not dissing any of the final eight teams when I say this, but I feel the Jets are going to be a force for years to come.

Through the first 40 minutes of Game 1, it was a one-sided battle.

In the years since that first round series in 2004, which the Preds tied 2-2 before falling in six games, the playoff games have piled up for the Predators.

Connor Hellebuyck loves what he's seeing in his first National Hockey League postseason, and the 24-year-old goalie is doing his best to make sure the Winnipeg Jets do much more than just stick around.

Stastny doubled the Jets lead at 9:01 of the second.

"But I think it's close". "They're going to fight back with everything they have next game".

The good news is the Jets weren't porous defensively.

It was reported that country music star Carrie Underwood, wife of the Predators veteran Mike Fisher, had a $10,000 bet with Winnipeg pro wrestler Chris Jericho on the series.

After sporting the 14th-ranked power-play unit in the regular season (converting 20.6 percent of all opportunities), the Predators have been able to score on 13.6 percent of their power plays in the postseason.

The Winnipeg Jets were soundly outshot, but Connor Hellebuyck helped them steal a win in Game One at Nashville; Scheifele, Wheeler, Fiala and more in Scott Cullen's Statistically Speaking. It was an incredible effort by Nikolaj Ehlers who raced the puck up the ice and found Patrik Laine in front and Stastny put home the rebound.

At 17:51 of the second, Scheifele made it 3-0.

Winnipeg has scored on 23.5 percent of its power play opportunities this season, a mark that's good enough for fifth-best in the National Hockey League.

The regular-season numbers tell the tale of two teams evenly matched in nearly every main category, although Nashville clipped the Jets 3-1-1 in their five meetings that featured 41 goals in regulation. "You have some control of it, and you just want to make sure that you execute at the highest level".

"That's always nice", Hellebuyck said. You get a lucky bounce at one end and capitalize at the other. "Hands down, I promise a win tonight".

During Saturday's media availability, Jets captain Blake Wheeler drew some laughs when he shared that not everyone on the team noticed that Juuse Saros replaced Rinne at the start of the third period.

Fiala got Nashville on the scoreboard at 1:23 of the third. Of course, stonewalling a Nashville squad that is averaging 3.67 goals in the playoffs will be no easy task for the youngster.

Ellis left the game on his next shift after getting cut when Ben Chiarot's skate clipped him in the face near his left eye. It was 3-0 going into the final period. The fourth goal was a empty-net goal. They are professionals and they know for certain they stunk up the 'Stone on this night. The Cup Final against Pittsburgh was another six-game series for a total of 22 last April-June and concluding with handshakes at Bridgestone Arena on June 11.
