Winnipeg Jets vs. Vegas Golden Knights - 5/12/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The conference finals are set, and there is now a 75% chance the 2017-18 National Hockey League season ends with a first-time Stanley Cup champion. Documenting that ride has been official team photographer Jeff Bottari, who has endeavored to be unique and proactive in chronicling the Knights' inaugural year.

It is "The Peg" taking on Sin City in a fascinating Western Conference showdown that starts on Saturday featuring two teams, the Jets and Golden Knights, and two cities that are as different as opera and heavy metal rock. Vegas did take two of three in this series during the regular season, so they do have confidence against this team and Marc-Andre Fleury is hot, while the Jets have scored just one goal in their last two games here at home combined.

They're contributing in various ways, including with secondary scoring and a freedom from the past playoff failures that became a burden for Capitals veterans. But to do it, they'll have to solve an expansion team that coalesced from nothingness into a Cup contender. The team supposedly gave him a verbal warning not to do it again but it obviously fell on deaf ears because in the next round against Tampa Bay, he gave Ryan Callahan a real "chin to nose" lick, an extra-long tongue slurp and once again the stunned refs called nothing. Games 1 and 2 will be played Saturday and Monday at the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg.

He has six goals in the playoffs and five in the last eight games.

"If we don't win the Cup, I certainly hope Dave and George do", said Kolzig, who serves as the Capitals' professional development coach.

Where Winnipeg dominated the game on Thursday was in goaltending. With the win, the Jets beat the Predators four games to three. The self-described "Golden Misfits' turned their motivation into production, as of the 22 players who dressed in 30 or more games, 13 posted career highs in points or goals, most notably Jonathan Marchessault (75 points versus previous high of 51) and William Karlsson".

Will Fleury and the Knights Best Winnipeg on the Way to One of the Most Memorable Seasons Ever? The Golden Knights have gone 26-20 on the road and they have averaged 2.89 gpg and have allowed 2.87 gpg in those games. Other teams gifted the Golden Knights draft pick inventory to steer them away from or toward certain unprotected players.

Vegas Golden Knights fans celebrate a goal against the San Jose Sharks during Game 5 of their NHL hockey second-round playoff game Friday, May 4, 2018, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

I don't want to pretend that I thought this would happen all along.

Winnipeg takes care of Vegas in six. You play hard, you get penalties - that's fine.

"Maybe one technical thing that's changed, but for the most part of it, it was just about getting ready, the mental aspect of it", said Fleury.

"The telling stat for me in this series is we played four games in (Nashville) and never lost in regulation". The Golden Knights are the only expansion team in the four major USA sports leagues to have a winning record (51-24-7).

Jets coach Paul Maurice was justifiably happy after knocking out the Presidents Trophy winners with three victories in enemy territory. "Every game is a new start, you got to start from scratch and try to win that one".

Winnipeg went 1-1-1 against Vegas during the regular season. Those mini-dynasties helped get the league back on its feet, but hockey's best advertisement today is the rabid enthusiasm with which fans have embraced relatively new arrivals in Vegas and Winnipeg and the consistently electric atmospheres in Tampa Bay and Washington.
