All tied up headed to Winnipeg.

The Jets are looking like slight favourites right now, but the Nashville offence has so many weapons. The lightsabres and fish drinking in Nashville looked nuts. This series is living up to the hype. It's my Cup final.

Didn't get a chance to watch Game 2 but man it must've had everything you could possibly want in a playoff game.

They say you need to learn how to lose before you can learn how to win. Jets had the Preds ripe for the picking and laid a stinker against their more experienced rival.

Forsberg was absolutely unreal. MVP-level performance from him when it mattered. This one goes back to Nashville, where the Jets have won but not a game 7 with everything on the line.

It's been a strange series with a couple of blowouts and lots of offence, but we all assumed it would go 7 and here we are. Awesome playoffs in general so far.

For all the Tostitos tonight.

Whoever wins this wins the Cup, I say. Can Forsberg be stopped?

If I were a betting man I would think Nashville closes it out tonight. Jets had their shot and blew it.

Ridiculous how much of a non-factor home ice has been in these playoffs.

Agreed, game six in the white out was their time and they got blown out. That being said, they could be extra mad about how that game went down, but the extra layoff hasn't done them any favours. Big game experience can be a factor, and the Jets haven't been here before.

That was a weak call on Conner (dive by Subban). 2-1 Jests. Rinne riding the pine.

Hoooo boy, Jets are gonna win this thing. The Prez Trophy Curse strikes again!

Seriously though, I'm quite shocked that Nashville looked so out of sorts during this postseason. Even against the Avs something was way off.

Yikes Preds need a goalie.

Not the worst meltdown by a Prez Cup team by any stretch, but certainly one of the strangest.

Kyle Turris was a complete non-factor in these playoffs. Ryan Johansen wasn't much of a factor either.

And yeah, Pekka was playing most of the postseason like he had the Vezina strapped to his back.

The better netminder and overall team won. Wonder if the Preds will audition Saros for #1 next year. He has solid back up numbers.

Wow get out of my head! I thought no way Nashville will lose after shutting Jets out in the Peg with their season on the line ....ok
