It will be 30 years next year since the Caps advanced to the Canadian junior A hockey championship, and maybe that anniversary will be good luck for Cameron with his second Capitals' team. This is a fluke, there's no way they'll keep this up. "They came out fast, they came hard and it was tough to weather that storm early on". 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 Jets will host the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night in Game 1 of the conference finals - Winnipeg's first-ever trip to the third round of the National Hockey League playoffs. Speed. The Knights play a relentless system of pressure that pushes the opposition into a bit of a track meet and making reads at an increased rate.
"There are some die-hards that if they came from Winnipeg, you're not converting them at this point", Brooks said. (The Capitals tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs, only a year after being the best team in the National Hockey League and facing them in a 1 vs 8 matchup). "We knew we were getting a quality player, obviously you can see that on the ice". Perreault Little Roslovic adds a speed and tenacity that isn't quite the same as having Armia, although the latter played well in game seven.
While some may begrudge the two day turn around start date for the series it might be better for Winnipeg to get back "at it" rather than rest and wait as Vegas has had the luxury of doing.

"It's only round 2". Only the Lightning have won the cup before and that was before the lockout so many years ago.
The Jets have built themselves through the draft and savvy trades over the past few years.
Stastny has been a shining light for the Jets since being acquired from the St. Louis Blues at the trading deadline.
After a back-and-forth slugfest of a second-round series with the Nashville Predators where neither club has imposed its will for longer than a period or two, the Jets are looking to get back to their best, or close to it, on the road in Game 7 at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday night. "But as exciting as it is, I think really the driving force within the group is there's so much more to give and there's so much more that the players want to give".
The Knights are only the third expansion team to make the playoffs in their inaugural season, and they kicked off this fall with wins in eight of their first nine games. It's easily the most successful season by an expansion team in any pro sport.
