|WINNIPEG: LAST SEASON: 52-20-10, 114 points. Finished second in Central Division. |
LOST to Vegas Golden Knights in Western Conference final.
COACH: Paul Maurice (Sixth season, 21st NHL season)
ADDED: G Laurent Brossoit
LOST: C Paul Stastny, F Matt Hendricks, F Joel Armia, G Steve Mason
PLAYER TO WATCH: RW Patrik Laine. The Finnish phenom's 44 goals were second in the NHL last season to Alex Ovechkin' 49, and he's only 20 years old. Maurice thinks Laine's game is becoming more mature and well-rounded, and it has to be to carry the Jets back to title-contending status. Laine also could score 40-plus goals again because his shot is just that wicked.
OUTLOOK: Winnipeg has been on the rise in recent seasons and should be even better after its playoff run ended in the West final in five games. With Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler, Bryan Little and Dustin Byfuglien still in their primes, and Laine, Nikolai Ehlers, Joshua Morrissey and goaltender Connor Hellebuyck still improving, the Jets are among the favorites to come out of the West ' if they can get past Nashville again.
|ST LOUIS: LAST SEASON: 44-32-6, 94 points. Finished fourth in Central Division, one point shy of a playoff spot.
COACH: Mike Yeo (second full season, eighth NHL season).
ADDED: C Ryan O'Reilly, C Tyler Bozak, F David Perron, F Patrick Maroon, G Chad Johnson.
LOST: F Vladimir Sobotka, F Patrik Berglund, F Tage Thompson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Ryan O'Reilly. St. Louis was active this offseason, highlighted by a blockbuster trade with Buffalo that netted the skilled O'Reilly. The 27-year-old center had 24 goals and 37 assists in his final season with the lowly Sabres. Playing for the refurbished Blues, he could be headed for a big year.
OUTLOOK: Loaded. The addition of O'Reilly, Bozak, Perron and Maroon should create a deep set of lines, and captain Alex Pietrangelo remains one of the NHL's top defensemen. The most pressing concern for St. Louis just might be the health of high-scoring winger Vladimir Tarasenko, who is coming back from April surgery on his left shoulder.
|Jets looking to even series against Blues|
Have the Winnipeg Jets finally achieved liftoff? Or are they not quite ready for flight?
Despite a dominating performance in Sunday's 6-3 victory to pull themselves back into their first-round playoff series with the St. Louis Blues, the visiting Jets still have plenty to answer Tuesday in Game 4.
The Jets still trail 2-1 in the best-of-seven affair. Once considered a Stanley Cup contender, they have struggled for months, unable to string together victories or stay at the top of their game for extended stretches. Time will tell whether Sunday's effort means Winnipeg has finally turned that corner, or if it will take another step backward.
"We're building every shift, every game throughout the series," said Jets winger Kyle Connor, who scored two goals in the Game 3 win. "We're getting closer to our game, and it's pretty dangerous."
After the Blues took both games in Winnipeg to kick off the series, the Jets were in must-win territory. They delivered a strong start-to-finish performance, justifying their belief that they were just as good as their opponents in the first two games.
"It was good to get rewarded," Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler said. "Obviously (a 3-0 series deficit) is a bad hole to get into. We stayed with the game plan, stayed with what we've done the whole series so far, and just got a little bit more rewarded."
Unquestionably, playoff wins and losses are more emotional, but the Blues have every right to feel confident. They are still up in the series, and Game 4 is on their turf -- even if all three games in the series have been won by the road team. Besides, counting their finish in the regular season, St. Louis has won 10 of its last 13 games.
"There's no panic in here," forward David Perron told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "We've just got to look at some video, talk about things (Monday). We'll be fine. It's one game. Whether you win 7-0 or you lose 1-0, it's worth one right now. Got to give them credit, they played a good game."
"We made a good push there for a little bit, but we just didn't start the way we wanted to," Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo added. "We knew they were going to come out (and) it just wasn't us from the start. We had some good pushes, but overall we need to do better."
Seeing as both teams finished the regular season with 99 points, it makes sense this would be a closely contested series. What makes the difference between moving onto the next round or a quick exit remains to be seen, but both teams are aware they must find another gear.
"I liked our first two games maybe more than I let on -- I just didn't want to sound like we were happy about losing hockey," Jets coach Paul Maurice said. "I didn't think we were that far off. We played well. This is going to be a good, tight and probably seven-game series."
