Jamie Nye: Winnipeg Jets now the favourite?

Golden Knights unfazed about having to start next playoff series on road

Winnipeg will now play the Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference Final, which will start Saturday at the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg. The Golden Knights did not make Prior available for an interview for this article.

"I'm behind them all the way", Wall said. "The trade deadline is a fast and furious period of time". "We didn't know what to expect". And it had to be the right fit. That all changed when the Jets demolished the Minnesota Wild in the first round, tossing them around en route to a five game victory, giving the Winnipeg faithful their first taste of playoff success. To make it sting just a little bit more, Subban would score his fourth power play goal of the series just moments later to cut the lead to 2-1.

"We've done a good job of not getting too high or too low after games and always focusing on the next one".

"But what he can bring inside a room, until you have a player, someone like that who can provide those experiences, you don't really appreciate until you have".

It's about 1,600 miles away from the Las Vegas Valley, but this weekend all eyes in southern Nevada will be on Winnipeg as the Golden Knights take on the Winnipeg Jets in the Western Conference Final.

Deputies find body in retention pond where boy went missing
Rescue crews in Florida found a body in an alligator-infested pond after a report that a teenager went missing. Crews on Wednesday used sonar devices for hours trying to find the alleged victim.

"They opened people's eyes real quick", said Jets captain Blake Wheeler. We'll continue to play with confidence in here.

Do you buy the "let's just get a split on the road" mantra?

One interesting storyline that those in Winnipeg will know is that prior to the season TSN broadcast and former Winnipeg Free Press columnist Gary Lawless took a job with the Golden Knights as there director of communications and doing game day media. They have been very solid at the defensive end of the ice, during the postseason, as they come in ranked 3rd in goals allowed, giving up 2.25 gpg, while also ranking 2nd in shots allowed (28.6 spg) and 10th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 25.0% of their chances.

After going head to head with the Predators top trio of Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson, the Jets' first line of Mark Scheifele, Wheeler and Kyle Connor are likely to see a lot of Golden Knights forwards William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith during the next two weeks.

Before the season started it would've made no sense, but it makes ideal sense now with how both teams played all season and in the playoffs. It's tough, but the Jets just have the slight edge when it comes to going toe to toe with Vegas.

Pogba is staying at Manchester United - Mourinho
However, there's one player that the Portuguese is desperate to keep a hold although it appears his mind is not set for changing. He has made just one league appearance this season as his playing career winds down but will be afforded one last home outing.

The Vegas Golden Knights didn't just surpass expectations, they made those expectations a complete laughingstock.

Tenacity, speed, lineup depth and great coaching are the reasons why Vegas is still playing, and the same can be said of the Jets. "Everybody is going to be wired", Maurice said. "Remember the year prior in Florida, the wonderful job he did with that team".

Game 2 will be played Monday night. This should be a really good series that features plenty of offence (Ovie vs Stamkos) and some great goaltending (Holtby vs Vasilevskiy). Very similar in terms of ours. Only six of the 28 teams (Nashville and Atlanta Thrashers players were exempt from the draft) went with the latter option.

"To me. the relationship to the game is the closest here of all the teams in the National Hockey League". "And they've been extremely successful".

"Specifically outstanding transition and speed".

Manchester City set new Premier League goals record
Guardiola, who sanctioned Toure's 2010 move to City while in charge of Barca, expects a fond farewell for the 34-year-old. That is held by Manchester United who won the league in 1999/2000 by 18 points, and are now 20 behind City.

"There are some die-hards that if they came from Winnipeg, you're not converting them at this point", Brooks said. There will be contact for sure in the zones, but that won't be the story. "Against the best team in the league", he told The Winnipeg Sun.
