EXACTLY What will Happen In Winnipeg vs. Vegas. + HUGE Habs Rumor

Jets land in NHL West finals

Jets land in NHL West finals

Tickets for all of Winnipeg's home games in the series will be available to the public Friday at 10 a.m. Imagine this time past year even contemplating the possibility that the Vegas Golden Knights and the Winnipeg Jets would be meeting in the Western Conference final in 2018. But how much do you know about the city where Games 1 and 2 will be played?

"With the hockey win, we wanted to provide other options for hockey enthusiasts looking to catch a game and also enjoy Vegas for all that it offers", said spokesperson Lauren Stewart. Make plays, play with some confidence and some courage.

The Winnipeg Jets will host the expansion Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday in game one of a Western Conference final that nobody would have predicted at the start of the season. The Jets were coming off a non-playoff season and the Knights, for all intents and purposes, didn't even exist. The P.E.I. native has gotten the most out of a group that was beset by injuries (using four goalies in a seven-game stretch) and lacks a true superstar. For starters, just about everyone had a chip on his shoulder - including the head coach. Just under two minutes later Paul Stastny had a couple of whacks at the puck at the side of the net, lifting the second opportunity up and over Rinne, who was ultimately yanked after allowing two goals on seven shots.

Then there's former Wild players Erik Haula and Alex Tuch, both of whom have been instrumental in this playoff surge.

4 - At the end of the second round, the four leading scorers in the playoffs have all been eliminated: Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel and Sidney Crosby with 21 points, and Boston's David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand with 20 and 17 points.

These are two pretty similar teams in that they both are opportunistic and thrive on riding waves of momentum.

But even after Us Weekly confirmed that she and Tristan are "fully back together," she's insisting that she's doing well mentally. Speaking about her plans for U.S. mother's day, she told fans: "As of now, there aren't any special plans (that I know of, LOL)".

Vegas, here they come. Real explosive so far in the playoffs. "They came out fast, they came hard and it was tough to weather that storm early on. Try to limit them as much as we can".

But Maurice certainly has a great deal of respect for the job Gallant has done.

She's lived in Las Vegas for the past 12 years, and as a big hockey fan, was excited when Las Vegas finally got a professional sports team. In terms of style of game, it looks very similar to the way Vegas plays now. That limited protection list means good players will be available for Seattle, but this time around, NHL GMs will have more time to prepare and will likely be a lot more careful with the players they leave unprotected.

"I think he maybe had something a little bit more to prove this year after the last couple years".

The staff at Brooksy's which is attached to the ice rink at the Las Vegas ice center, says they're already getting ready for Saturday's game. "The two teams we played were very good hockey teams and we were very evenly matched with those teams", he said, referring to his playoff opponents. "And they've been extremely successful".

"Specifically outstanding transition and speed. There's other ones that get the starry-eyed, saucer-eyed (look) and they have to sort of work through that", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. The problem for the Jets here is that they didn't play well at home in their series against the Preds and they will be very exhausted for this one, while the Golden Knights haven't played since Sunday. There will be contact for sure in the zones, but that won't be the story. There would've been no shame in losing to such a high-powered team, but Winnipeg proved themselves superior and torched them on numerous occasions to take the series in seven games with a 5-1 win on the road in Game 7.
