Jets, Predators look to break series tie

Winnipeg Jets' Jacob Trouba and Blake Wheeler celebrate after Trouba scored against the Nashville Predators during second period NHL hockey playoff action in Winnipeg Tuesday

Nasvhillle Predators down Winnipeg Jets to even series 2-2

Laine scored late in Game 4 and it was his first goal since Game 2 of the opening round.

This shouldn't be surprising. And in the playoffs they've been at their absolute best coming off of losses.

Nashville significantly dialed back their aggressive game plan to limit Winnipeg's time and space to slow the Jets' speed and advantage in high-end skill at forward. Nashville won Game 2 in double-overtime to prevent losing the first two games at home.

It's continued in this series.

The Winnipeg Jets left-winger had created some scoring chances, but was in the midst of one of his longest goal scoring droughts of the season - a full 10 games between finding the back of the net.

Buffett and longtime business partner Charlie Munger fielded questions for about five hours from journalists and investors. Analysts, on average, expected operating profit of about $3,116 per Class A share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.


For the Predators, the Laine concern aside, they need to bring the same discipline, the same physicality to game five.

Of course, it helps that even when there was a crack in the yellow brick wall the Predators constructed over the back half of the outing, netminder Pekka Rinne stared down everything that came his way. He stopped 13 of 16 shots before Nashville coach Peter Laviolette lifted him the Finn at the start of the third period in an attempt to jumpstart his team.

But thanks to some solid goaltending from Connor Hellebuyck, the Jets found a way to escape the period even at 0-0. In each successive period, the Jets managed one fewer shot, and their high-danger opportunities at all strengths went from seven in the first frame to five in the second and just two in the final 20 minutes. Subban slid down in the slot and ripped a shot by a screen from the always prominent net front presence of Viktor Arvidsson for the goal.

"It's been tough to watch the games", Armia said following Winnipeg's morning skate at Bell MTS Place.

"True to Winnipeg's winning spirit, we at Winnipeg Harvest are absolutely thrilled at the outpouring of support from True North Sports + Entertainment and our community", said Keren Taylor-Hughes, executive director, Winnipeg Harvest.

This best of seven series is now a best of three series starting Saturday night.

Subban has scored on power plays in each of the past three games in the best-of-seven showdown between adversaries that earned the most points in the National Hockey League during the regular season.

For the Jets, it was their first loss on home ice since February 27 against these same Predators, snapping a 13-game winning streak including the playoffs. But Thursday night the Preds answered all their critics, responding yet again for a critical win.

Count them out at your own peril.

The Predators buckle down to get out of Winnipeg with the win. After beating up four Predators at the same time, Dustin Byfuglien completed Winnipeg's scoring. The Jets managed just two shots on the backup netminder over 18 minutes before he was pulled for an extra attacker. But as we saw Thursday night, the Predators are totally capable of fending them off, too. Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun knock heads on stolen nachos, the Predators' bold lineup moves and assorted other series tidbits.
