So, it has come down to this, tonight we have Jets vs the Predators for game 7 at Nashville. The winner will advance on to play against the Golden Knights. Big question here is who is going to win? The Predators are coming off a huge victory in game 6 where they shutout the Jets 4 to 0 at Winnipeg. During this round we have seen Pekka Rinne make multiple incredible saves. Now the question is can he do it again?
What’s it going to take win game 7? Easy answer…Goaltending!
Some things to point out here. Yes, Pekka Rinne had an amazing game 6 win. However, even with the shutout Pekka Rinne’s stats are still below Connor Hellebuyck. Not to mention, when comparing Hellebuyck and Rinne, Rinne was pulled from 2 games in the round 2 because he was unable to stop the Jets. Meanwhile, Hellebuyck has played all six games from start to finish and is currently hold a 91% SV.
I'm No Pro Prediction…
After watching the games, reviewing the data, and running the stats. We have….
The Winnipeg Jets winning tonight’s game but it’s going to be close. We also see this as being a very active game. A night full of hard hits, lots of shots on goals, again it’s going to come down to goaltending. Throughout this round Pekka Rinne has given up 19 goals on only 183. In which for every 10 shots the Jets are averaging 1 goal, with seeing an average of 30 shots.
