Rinne has 48 wins, 22 losses, and four overtime losses to his credit, and has registered a.923 save percentage and 2.45 goals against average this year. Updates with new lead.

Nashville Predators left wing Filip Forsberg (9) scores a goal against Winnipeg Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck (37) in the third period in game six of the second round of the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Bell MTS Centre.

They're on the right side of a trend of punching and counter-punching that has been ongoing all series, they've proven they can win in Nashville and they're still just a win away from reaching the Western Conference final.

After yet another disappointing performance in Game Five, the Predators responded great on the road, as they came out of Winnipeg with a 4-0 win.

Under is 4-0 in Jets last 4 following a loss of 3 or more goals and Jets are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and Jets are 1-5 in their last 6 games following a home loss of 3 or more goals.

"Desperation", was how Rinne phrased it to the Associated Press.

The Jets will look to close out the series in Game 6 at home on Monday.

"We obviously believe in each other", Forsberg said. You'd think it would favour the home team.

You might say the Winnipeg Jets - though they have never played a winner-take-all deciding game before as a a franchise - have plenty of reasons to feel confident going into Game 7 of their series with the Predators.

Forsberg outdid himself with his seventh playoff goal at 5:55 of the third period.

The old Jets claimed three WHA titles in the 1970s, but the franchise was swept aside by the Edmonton Oilers in its only two National Hockey League conference semifinal appearances - 1985 and 1987 - before leaving town to become the Phoenix Coyotes in 1996. "That was pretty much the whole story of our game, 5-on-5 and power play".

Forward Colton Sissons sees Forsberg as having a gift that helps him see how best to move the puck instantly to execute in high-pressure moments. This is the first time a Predators goalie posted a shutout in an elimination game and it's also just the second time in this series that the veteran allowed fewer than three goals in a game.

Predators defenseman PK Subban, who has been booed non-stop by Jets fans whenever he touches the puck, virtually guaranteed that his team would push the series to the limit. The other Jets goal scorers were Mathieu Perreault of Drummondville, Quebec and Paul Stastny.

"They played a good game tonight, got out to that lead and it's just tough to come back", Jets captain Blake Wheeler said.

"I think we can gain a lot of confidence from this game", Predators center Ryan Johansen said. You've got to play every day.

The speedy winger crashed into the end boards after being taken down by Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien.

The on-ice officials called it off saying that he hit it with a high stick, but after review it was determined to be a good goal. The Predators know they can win in Winnipeg, they did it back in game four, but now it is a must-win situation, or the seasons over for the NHL's top point producing team.

Watch the highlights of last nights game. Teemu Selanne, a member of the original Jets from 1992-96, was in attendance. Calle Jarnkrok also drew in for Nashville on the fourth line with Mike Fisher after sitting out the last three.
