WINNIPEG @ NASHVILLE- 8:00 EDT/5:00 PDT (CBC/SN) (Series tied 3-3)
After a delay for literally one of the worst reasons possible, the Jets and Preds prepare for what should be an epic Game 7 battle tonight. This series has had pretty much everything you could hope for out of both teams, and now it all comes down to which goalie is gonna save the day for their team. Both Pekka Rinne and Connor Hellebuyck have been brilliant at times. They’ve also been god awful, and both teams are going to need these guys to be at their best tonight. The Jets issues are still the same: they need guys like Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor to bust out, while the Preds need their secondary scoring to step up in the event the big names aren’t getting it done.
The winner won’t have long to rest, as Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Tampa Bay and Washington goes tomorrow night in Tampa. Once we know who will be taking on Vegas after tonight’s game, we want to see your predictions. Who ya got?
