WestJet adding nonstop flights to Vegas during Jets playoff run

  • Jets land in NHL West finals

You just had to see it to believe it. Their playoff run looked over just two game in, but they battled back to beat Columbus and then finally climbed the mountain known as Pittsburgh.

Winnipeg regained home-ice advantage for the best-of-seven series due to their overall second-place finish with 114 points.

Anger - This is ridiculous.

Many wrote off the Capitals in the off-season, after they lost key contributors Justin Williams, Kevin Shattenkirk, and Karl Alzner to free agency.
"Every game is a new start, you got to start from scratch and try to win that one".

Bargaining - Alright, so they are still leading the Pacific big deal. Wrong. How about Florida's GM completely underestimated his own roster and actively gave up two good young players for nothing.

Many NHL GM's, while impressed with Vegas' success, are also furious at it. Of the remaining four teams left in the National Hockey League playoffs, there may not be a better candidate for the Conn Smythe Trophy then Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

Not bad for a guy who started the season as a backup. The Golden Knights have to do something a bit different- start away from home.

9 - Vegas is just the third team since 1960 to reach the conference finals in their first year of existence, joining the 1967-68 Minnesota North Stars and St. Louis Blues.

Most of us went through at least a few of these stages.

This series is pretty much as even as it gets.

"Figuring out a way to enjoy it, and I'm not talking casually enjoying it, but bringing that enjoyment into the intensity of your game, is what I thought we did very well in Game 7". Through 94 regular season outings, 46 of its games have gone over the total, while an additional 46 have gone under and just two have pushed.

Vegas is used to rolling four lines and three pairs of defensemen. He allowed five or six goals on seven occasions in the regular season and came back with a win in the next game in six of those games. I'm certainly happy to be here and have the chance to do it. -George McPheeI think we've played really well on the road and at home. There are no more surprises. "In a sense they play like us, they have a lot of depth and they can roll four lines and they have good, puck-moving D. So we're going to have our hands full for sure". Other teams have struggled constantly to put together the type of chemistry that winning teams cultivate, and the Knights created it in one day.

According to oddsmakers, the Jets are a -145 favorite to win on the moneyline. Former Winnipegger Jeff Stevenson will watch the game on television, before travelling from Calgary to Las Vegas next week for the third game of the series.

The Western Conference Finals begin this evening and the Pacific Division will square off with the Central Division as the Vegas Golden Knights rumble with the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Bell Centre in game one of their best-of-seven series. After multiple close games decided by a bounce or two, the Jets take a Game 7 on home ice to advance to their first Stanley Cup Finals. But here we are, with the two most intriguing and exciting teams in the National Hockey League playing for a chance to be in the Stanley Cup final.

Tyler Myers and Paul Stastny scored 2:06 apart in the first period, and the Jets stunned the Nashville Predators 5-1 on Thursday night in their first Game 7 - continuing an fantastic run for a team swept in its previous two playoff appearances.

Karlsson scored 43 goals during a breakout regular season and he's tied with Marchessault for the team lead in playoff points with 11.
