Nashville Predators forward breaks Bridgestone Arena's scoreboard with puck

Predators edge Jets in Game 2 to even series

Predators edge Jets in Game 2 to even series

The Predators are 6-1 in their last seven games on Tuesdays.

They instead spent the first intermission calmly trying to figure a way out of that deficit. "Our goal was just to win the second period and give ourselves a chance". So, yeah. There's a reason they're not getting more minutes. He's got the right reads and the real good defensive play. They will need to stay composed in Game 4 and stay out of the box if they want to head back to Nashville at 2-2.

Wheeler also had an assist and added the empty-netter with under a minute to play. Combined with his points in Winnipeg's five-game first-round series victory over Minnesota, the 25-year-old has 10 points in seven games. A couple minutes later, he made a big pad save on a shot by Kyle Connor and then gloved a shot from Byflugien. But in the third, he made a big mistake, taking an unnecessary interference penalty by leaning in on Colton Sissons, who didn't have the puck, giving Nashville a power play on which Filip Forsberg scored to tie the game at 4-4.

Both teams have seen a significant drop in their ability to get scoring chances on net, with the Predators dropping from 58% of their scoring chances being on net in the regular season to 54.5% this series, and the Jets dropping from 57% in the regular season to just 47.5%. You're there for hockey.

Johansen said the Predators stopped skating after blowing the lead.

"You hope that there's a pretty good reward at the end and these are the things you've got to go through and the days you've got to battle through and do what you got to do today and get ready for tomorrow". They will have to continue that as the series swings to Winnipeg.

Game 4 takes place on Thursday, May 3 at 9:30 p.m. ET in Winnipeg. Forsberg registered the primary assist on P.K. Subban's power-play goal in the first period.

The veteran center raised his arms in celebration, but play continued for a few seconds before officials blew the sequence dead to check if the puck crossed the line.

Wheeler then missed a wide-open net after Rinne's turnover before getting cleaned out by Watson along the boards.

The Nashville Predators and Washington Capitals were able to knot their Stanley Cup second-round series at a game apiece by winning on Sunday.

Mark Scheifele and Austin Watson were both called for charging and boarding minors and the game was 4-on-4. While Dumolin said he didn't see Wilson coming because he was bracing for a hit by Alex Ovechkin, Wilson claimed Dumolin turned his head just before impact leaving Wilson with no time to react.

Winnipeg imposed its physical will as the period wore on, hitting Nashville's defense at every opportunity, and the pressure finally paid off with 45 seconds remaining when Patrik Laine passed to Byfuglien for his second of the game. Especially on a night when infractions that would get you time in prison weren't called. I just put one fist up in the air.

Winnipeg got its third man advantage of the third with 5:59 remaining when Subban went off for high sticking after failing to clear the puck twice late in a previous Jets power play before Wheeler scored the victor. "It's real, too", Wheeler said. "It's real too. Our crowd noise is from our crowd, it's not from speakers or from music or from live bands or whatever". He hasn't yet scored against the Golden Knights, but it might not be smart to bet against him making some noise before the series is over. The Predators won the game against the Jets 5-4 in double overtime, tying up the series 1-1.

The goal was a show of strength as he skated in unimpeded and muscled a blast from the right faceoff circle past Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.

It was the Predators' first game to go two overtimes since May 16, 2016 when a playoff win against San Jose lasted three overtimes.

Fisher nearly added to it late in the period, but his backhand hit the post behind Hellebuyck. "Tough time, tough break but you know, it happens".
