NASHVILLE Jack Roslovic Jersey Womens , Tenn. (AP) Playing the Winnipeg Jets is exactly why Nashville coach Peter Laviolette wanted home-ice advantage in the NHL playoffs.Even if its a round or two earlier than anyone really wants.Laviolettes Predators play Winnipeg in the Western Conference semifinals after turning in their best season in franchise history to grab the right to start and end a series in the place called Smashville.They edged out their Central Division rival by a mere three points for the Presidents Trophy, and this will be just the fifth series since 1990 between the NHLs top two teams in the regular season.They wanted divisional battles, got them, Laviolette said. This should be a big series.Its the second straight postseason that division foes and the leagues top finishers meet in this round. Pittsburgh, which wound up beating Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final, advanced to the Eastern finals by downing the Capitals in Game 7 in Washington.Winnipeg and Nashville played so well that this series has been anticipated for weeks, so good it could be a Cup Final despite the Predators winning the regular-season series 3-1-1. Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban dismissed such talk Thursday, noting this round remains a long way from the Stanley Cup Final.A thrilling series with lots of speed and goals? That the Jets and Predators can provide.The thing about winning, and Im sure you ask anybody whos won a Cup, is the steps that it takes to get there Scott Mayfield Jersey Womens , Subban said. You have to go through some thick walls, and this is definitely one of the thickest walls that were going to have to get through to get there.Winnipeg goes against the defending Western Conference champs coming off the franchises first postseason series victory after relocating from Atlanta in 2011 with 10 Jets making their playoff debuts against the Wild. Winnipeg center Bryan Little says that makes the Jets the underdogs by just a little bit.Its going to be a really tough series and a tight series, so I think thats why everyones so excited about it, Little said.Some things to know before Game 1 on Friday night:VEZINA FINALISTSGoalies for both the Jets and Predators are finalists for the Vezina Trophy with Nashville veteran Pekka Rinne looking to win the award in his fourth try.Connor Hellebuyck made his postseason debut, shutting out Minnesota twice with a 1.94 goals-against average and .924 save percentage. Rinnes numbers werent nearly as glitzy against Colorado, but he tightened up over the final three games with a 1.34 GAA and .951 save percentage, including a shutout in the series clincher.HOME AND ROADNobody was better in the NHL at home than the Jets who went 32-7-2, and they have won 12 straight in Winnipeg, including all three in ousting Minnesota. The Jets havent lost at home since Feb. 27 to Nashville. The Predators were the leagues best away from home (25-9-7). The Predators won twice on the road in the first round, including clinching in Colorado in Game 6.OFFENSIVE FIREPOWEREven with Rinne and Hellebuyck in net Max Domi Jersey Womens , these teams combined for 42 goals in five games in the regular season with Nashville outscoring the Jets 22-20. It was the most goals the Jets scored against any team, while they also gave up the most goals to any opponent. The Jets also ranked second in the regular season for both most goals (273) and average goals per game (3.33)SHUT DOWN WHO?Nashvilles top trio is nicknamed the JOFA line for Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson. But the Predators top scoring line against Colorado was their third line of center Nick Bonino with Austin Watson and Colton Sissons, who combined for 19 points. The Jets can match Nashvilles scoring depth with seven players scoring at least 43 points in the regular season led by Blake Wheeler (91 points) and Patrik Laine (team-high 44 goals).SO DEFENSIVENashville has four of the NHLs best defensemen in Roman Josi, Ryan Ellis, Subban and Mattias Ekholm. But the group that led the league with 55 goals only had one goal in the first round, and that came in Game 6 from Ekholm. Subban says defending comes first for a team that ranked second in the regular season in allowing both the second-fewest goals (204) and average goals per game (2.49). LOS ANGELES (AP) The new kids kept having their way with the Los Angeles Kings until late in the game Monday night.Anze Kopitar tied the score with 10.8 seconds left in the third period and Dustin Brown delivered a power-play goal 3:14 into overtime, rallying the Kings to a 3-2 victory against the Vegas Golden Knights.It was the first win for Los Angeles in three games against the expansion Golden Knights, who sit atop the Western Conference. The teams meet again Tuesday in Las Vegas.You know what? We stayed with it, Kings coach John Stevens said after his team stopped a two-game skid. We chased the game a little bit there.Jeff Carter http://www.officialsabres.com/authen...-eichel-jersey , in his second game back after missing 55 with a cut tendon, trimmed Los Angeles deficit to 2-1 on a power play at 12:28 of the third. Jonathan Quick stopped 37 shots.Erik Haula and Reilly Smith scored for Vegas. Marc-Andre Fleury made 41 saves.Los Angeles needed a bit of luck to finally break through against Fleury. Carter scored his first goal of the season when his shot deflected in off the helmet of Vegas Cody Eakin.It was a great game, Golden Knights coach Gerrard Gallant said. Our team competed hard and played really well tonight. We had a 2-0 lead and, unfortunately, they got a power-play goal that was a bit lucky.Los Angeles pulled Quick and, after a flurry of shots, tied it 2-all when Kopitar took a sharp pass from Dion Phaneuf on the left side and fired it past Fleury for his 26th goal.The flurry at the end was outstanding, Stevens said. Guys came up with a lot of loose pucks. There was a lot of hunger for loose pucks.Fleury appeared to be headed for his third shutout of the season until the Kings late rally.Then they started patiently with their power play in overtime, working the puck around until Brown found Tyler Toffolis rebound in front of a sprawled-out Fleury and flicked it in for the game-winner.It was Browns 19th goal of the season.You cant look at the scoreboard during the game, Brown said. I mean http://www.officialflames.com/authen...monahan-jersey , you have to just start with your next shift. Its a simple thing. There are no three-point plays.The Golden Knights appeared to have things in hand early.In a tight game, they seemed to take command 47 seconds into the third when Smith came around from behind the net to flick William Karlssons rebound past Quick for his 21st goal of the season and a 2-0 lead.The Golden Knights struck first 4:37 into the game, which appeared to be particularly bad news for Los Angeles. Vegas had been 26-3 when scoring first.The opening score came from Haula, who broke through alone on the right side and fired a wrist shot over Quicks left shoulder. It was his 23rd of the season.But things turned late.They kept creating chances, Smith said. They created a lot of scrambles in front of the net. We played a good team game. Quick made a lot of big saves and kept them in it.Vegas forward Jonathan Marchessault was happy with the Knights play and upset about only one thing: Fleury was outstanding and he didnt get the win. Thats the only thing thats not positive.NOTES: The Kings honored the U.S. Olympic womens hockey team before the game. Each woman was individually introduced and walked onto the ice wearing her gold medal. Team captain Meghan Duggan dropped the ceremonial first puck. . It was Browns fourth game-winning goal of the season.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Play the Kings again Tuesday, this time in Las Vegas.Kings: On the road Tuesday against the Golden Knights.
