Jets with flawless start, win Game 1

Jets with flawless start, win Game 1

Now, after a 4-2 thumping to open the Western Conference final, it certainly feels like the awe-inspiring Golden Knights have not only met their match, but have quickly found themselves on the Highway to the Danger Zone.

Wheeler eventually fed a cross-ice pass to Laine, who one-timed his fourth, but just his second since Games 1 and 2 of the first-round series with the Minnesota Wild, as the Jets scored on two of their first six shots.

Winnipeg Jets' Ben Chiarot, Joel Armia and Tyler Myers (57) celebrate after Armia's first-period fluke of a goal was declared legit after initially being waved off for goalie interference.

Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck stopped 19 of 21 shots in the win. Winnipeg leads the series 2-1.

Jonathan Marchessault assisted on both Vegas goals.

The Jets hold a 4-2 lead over the Golden Knights entering the third period of game one of the Western Conference Finals. Las Vegas is 4-0 in its last four games after its opponent allowed two or less goals in its previous game.

One of the best parts of the National Hockey League playoffs is that anything can happen, but that doesn't mean that certain teams don't head into each round with a strong advantage than the others. With the Jets having 15 goals in the series' first three games, there has been little sign that Nashville can handle the Jets' speed and tempo.

In the track Rita sings: "Sometimes I just wanna kiss girls , girls , girls / Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls , girls girls ". I kind of can't go back now", she said of her multifaceted career. "I'm the hunter and she the prey", adds Bebe.

Anyway, Wheeler was back making solid defensive plays at least twice more in the period and picked up another assist - on a brilliant seam pass through traffic - to set up Patrik Laine for a power-play one-timer at 6:49. Armia crashed toward the net and redirected a puck across the goal line for his second playoff goal.

A well-deserved victory over the expansion Golden Knights also gave Winnipegers a prime time stage to hit back at all the punchlines and jabs they have absorbed over the decades.

The Jets will be flying high early, carried by the momentum of their raucous crowd. "All I wanted was to keep playing and I wanted my team to do well". I felt good and I was healthy. He has 23 goals and 37 assists in 60 regular season games. Their details are fantastic and they're really paying the price. "To play well in here as consistently as we did, it's impressive".

This advertisement does not scream party destination but it does say welcome to ice hockey country. "I thought we did a good job". "We had a few more days of rest while they had a really hard series against Nashville".

After the flurry of goals early, the Jets were able to possess the puck for much of the game to cut down on Vegas' comeback chances.

"We want to continue to prove people wrong", Perron said.
