The Nashville Predators won a crucial game six to push their series with Winnipeg to a decisive game seven. The Jets would score five in game seven, and the Predators never really had a chance.

Tyler Myers would get the Jets on the board midway through the first frame, while Mark Scheifele would score two goals as the Winnipeg Jets rolled over the Nashville Predators by 5-1 margin. Connor Hellebuyck had 37 saves for the Jets in the victory, while P.K. Subban would score the only goal for Nashville.

The Winnipeg Jets will face off against the Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference Championship. Game one begins Saturday night in Winnipeg

There will be a new Stanley Cup Champion in 2018. Who will it be?
