Jets with ideal start, win Game 1

Rested Golden Knights ready to face Jets in NHL's Western Conference final

The Winnipeg Jets and Vegas Golden Knights, whose series kicks off on Saturday, are both headed to their very first Conference Final after both earning their first postseason wins this year.

"We really worked on our day yesterday of doing what we want to accomplish". Initially ruled no goal because of goaltender interference, Jets coach Paul Maurice challenged the play and the call was reversed after a video review.

Earning 20.8 units for moneyline bettors, Winnipeg is 60-34 straight up (SU) overall this year. A Stanley Cup party will require three more Jets victories to lock up the best-of-seven series.

"They're all good stories", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.

Vegas hasn't been in any situation before, building off the best inaugural season in National Hockey League history by beating Los Angeles and San Jose to reach the West final.

Any doubts about the Jets' level of preparation for Vegas were dismissed about 65 seconds into the first period, when defenceman Dustin Byfuglien picked up a Mark Scheifele drop pass and hammered the puck behind Marc-Andre Fleury.

Vegas Golden Knights left wing David Perron (57) looks for a pass as Winnipeg Jets right wing Joel Armia (40) closes in during the second period in Game 1 of an NHL hockey third-round playoff series at the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Canada, on Saturday, May 12, 2018. "So that's what's the most exciting thing is you don't know, right?" "Game 1, you're always trying to get a bit of a feel for each other, with the matchups, to see what line can perform against what line".

Laine's goal at 6:49 of the first period.

Game one appeared to be heading for a wild offensive show before the respective defenses took control.

"We've been here in this situation before", Stamkos said.

He is six shots off the lead, though he did best his playing competitors, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler . He last played in the Open at St Andrews in 2015, when he missed the cut with rounds of 76 and 75.

Bobby Hull, Anders Hedberg, Ulf Nilsson - the Hot Line - and 12 other members of the 1977-78 WHA Jets are in town for a reunion and they're cheering like insane for the new incarnation of the team. "I think priority one is handling speed, not necessarily the physicality". I'm not putting anything past this storybook Golden Knights team.

Game 2 will be played in Winnipeg on Monday night. May.

Fellow Winnipegger Cody Eakin is the other Manitoban on the Golden Knights roster.

Scheifele has eight multipoint games in the playoffs, which trails only Wayne Gretzky (nine in 1988) for most in National Hockey League history by a player in his team's first 13 games of the postseason in the past 30 years. "I don't think experience changes that".

"They are a big part of why we are here".

The Golden Knights pulled Fleury to add an extra skater late in the game, but had to put him back on the ice because there was a faceoff near him.

"Nothing", said Craven, who then revealed she is very aware of Winnipeg's fans. "Even if you think you have a wide open net, you better bear down because he's jumping, coming across with something to save it. We just didn't get enough to the net". "From the outside, he's mostly going to save it".

The Jets became the fourth and final team to reach the third round when they beat the defending Western Conference-champion Predators on the road in Game 7 on Thursday night.

"This building is going to be insane". "We have a great atmosphere too in our building". "We're still in the mix, still playing". They played a real good game.
