With a 4-0 victory Monday, the Predators avoided elimination and will host their first Game 7 on Thursday. Calle Jarnkrok also drew in for Nashville on the fourth line with Mike Fisher after sitting out the last three. The first home game seven in franchise history. "It wasn't like we snuck away with one or weaseled a game out or whatever you want to call it".

Roman Josi also pulled in two assists, while Craig Smith picked up an assist as well. Rinne has allowed 19 goals against through the first five games of this series. The 35-year-old has a 7-5 record with a 2.94 goals-against-average and a.907 save percentage this postseason. He did exactly that.

With saves like this, it wasn't going to be Winnipeg's night.

Averaging 28.3 saves per game with a.924 save percentage, Connor Hellebuyck (51-26-10) has been the top option in goal for the Jets this season.

Referee Wes McCauley initially waved off the goal that bounced past Hellebuyck for high-sticking, but it was determined after video review that Arvidsson's stick was below the crossbar on the tip. Making things worse, the Jets hardly found themselves fully "set-up' on any of those three power play opportunities". No doubt, Rinne will get the start in Winnipeg Monday evening. Both the Predators and Jets were solid at home and good on the road. Trade deadline acquisition Paul Stastny had the best opportunity of the period for the Jets just six minutes in, as the veteran forward collected a bouncing puck that deflected off of a linesman, before carrying it to the Nashville net, and jamming at the rebound.

- The Predators announced the signing of Czech defenseman Filip Pyrochta to an entry level contract. His second goal - which made it 3-0 in the third - was a beauty.

The Jets took a big step towards meeting Vegas on Saturday night when they put four goals past Pekka Rinne in the second period, ultimately chasing the odds-on favorite for the Vezina Trophy in what became a 6-2 victory.

They have met 11 times since November, and Nashville has won six. Winnipeg retained a hold of the shot lead, 19-17 after 40 minutes. Arvidsson scored his second goal of the game with 4:02 remaining.

The Swedish star received a pass in front of the net from linemate Viktor Arvidsson, and what he did with it was absolutely incredible.

"Three-three, two best teams in the league".

"I have yet to be scored on in one, so I like those odds", he said. "I don't know why somebody would try to hit somebody after the whistle".

Europe's top leagues oppose Federation Internationale de Football Association plans for Nations League & Club World Cup
Federation Internationale de Football Association has declined to fully identify the investors citing a non-disclosure agreement. Europe's professional football leagues said Thursday they opposed FIFA plans to expand tournaments at club and global level.

After backstopping the Predators to the Stanley Cup final last spring, Rinne was determined to help keep his team's season alive and he did be delivering a 34-save shutout. The last time that Winnipeg was shut out at home came at MTS Centre, not Bell MTS Place.

Nashville beats Winnipeg 4-0, ties series at 3-3.

Considering no team has won two games in a row in this series and the trend says it's the Jets turn on Thursday night at Bridgestone Arena, those are encouraging numbers.

Winnipeg Jets' fans celebrate a goal during Stanley Cup playoff action. Winnipeg police said they were not involved in that incident.

"It's a hard-on-the-puck game".

The Predators' stick maestro stopped the puck with his stick on his left.

"He plays at a certain rate, a certain cadence", Maurice said of that move Connor made at the blue line in the first.

The Jets head to Tennessee knowing they can win there after picking up a convincing 4-1 victory in Game 1 before playing the Predators tight in a 5-4 double overtime loss in Game 2. Had any of those man advantages produced just a single goal, who knows how this one would have turned out.

But, really, no one should be surprised this series is going the distance.

Whoever it is will take on the Vegas Golden Knights, who continued their Cinderella story on Sunday night by conquering the San Jose Sharks 3-0 to take their series 4-2.

A watch party is scheduled to begin at 5 Music City Walk of Fame Park ahead of the 7 p.m. puck drop.
