Predators win another must-win game
The resiliency we know the Predators have erupts in Game 6 in Winnipeg. They follow-up their worst performance of the playoffs with their best. A complete domination from the Predators at the least likely time.
What ends up being so huge about this game is that the Predators finally protect a lead. They never let the Jets steal back any momentum to get on a roll. Never allow the fans to get back into the game. They place ends up staying quiet like it should have in Game 3.
How about Rinne shutting up the critics by posting a shutout on 34 shots faced. Forsberg also continues his march through the playoffs with two goals, giving him seven total. It’s a complete team effort, and takes very little stress. We all needed it after the first five games.
Arvidsson gets a crucial early goal to take some pressure off. If the Jets strike first, we all start sweating a lot more. It comes on a tip that’s reviewed after Roman Josi was just throwing a puck at the net. Helleybuyck finally ends up looking somewhat ordinary with his worst game of the series. The domination just continues after that as the Predators block a lot of shots to help out Rinne, and kill all four Jets power plays. We’re going to Game 7 back in Nashville.
