Jets star Mark Scheifele elevating his game on the big stage

Jets star Mark Scheifele elevating his game on the big stage

The actual jet is a significant show of aviation muscle compared to what Nashville fans "smashed" in their city last weekend.

Getting the win was big because the series now heads to Winnipeg for Game 3.

Game 3 in the series goes Tuesday at 7 p.m.at Winnipeg's Bell MTS place.

"It's an important process for us to go through having lost an overtime game", Jets coach Paul Maurice said.

After allowing three different two-goal leads to disappear on home ice this postseason, the Washington Capitals were able to hold on to one on Sunday afternoon, picking up a 4-1 win to tie their second-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins at one game apiece.

The Predators came on strong in overtime only to be pushed back by the goaltending of the Jets' Connor Hellebuyck, who had been a little off-form in regulation time.

The Nashville Predators forward potted the victor against the Jets in Game 2, taking a feed from Craig Smith, drawing goalie Connor Hellebuyck to the side and dancing around him to deposit the puck at 5:37 of the second overtime period for the 5-4 win that evens their second-round series. He has six points (3 G, 3 A) in eight playoff games.

The Capitals managed to stay in front after blowing a 2-0 lead in the third period of a series-opening loss. "Obviously we'll take this". They earned an all-important split in Nashville and now have three of the next five games on home ice. With that in mind, he was about as unsung a hero as the Bruins could have found in Game 5 of the first round last season, during which he scored two goals, including the tying tally and overtime victor. Arvidsson also posted two assists to make a victor of Pekka Rinne and his 40 stops and get the Preds even in the series.

Dustin Byfuglien and Brandon Tanev scored the other Jets goals. Then, after the Preds tied it on a power play blast from P.K. Subban, and took a lead on a laser off the rush from speedy winger Viktor Arvidsson, Winnipeg fought back.

"I had so much fun and wanted to continue to support the team by asking a few of my friends to get in on the action", she added. "Played a simple game and put pucks to the net, and that's when we're good".

Holtby robbed Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel with sliding pad saves to on the way to evening the series going into Game 3 Tuesday in Pittsburgh, which could mark the return of Penguins star center Evgeni Malkin from an apparent leg injury. They quickly started cycling the puck and the Jets, who talked a lot about how they needed to handle that starting push, stood around and watched. Just 34 seconds later, Johansen got his 2nd goal of the game to put the Predators up 4-3.

That broke a 10-game streak by the Jets of scoring first, which went back to the regular season. Chances? He's had a few, but the unsafe winger who made his way to the Jets top line as a rookie this season has yet to arrive in the playoffs, despite 15 shots on net. After scoring in Game 5 against the Minnesota Wild, Tanev has found twine in each of the first two games against the Nashville Predators.

"You obviously want to contribute and, yeah, obviously it's a good thing that you have the responsibility", he said.

Obviously with the game going an extra 25 minutes and 37 seconds with double overtime, the ice time numbers were a little bit skewed, but there were seven blue-liners who logged more than 30 minutes on Sunday, while Toby Enstrom was just shy of 26 and Tyler Myers of the Jets was just under 25.
