Jets fans in Nashville soaking in game 7 excitement

According to Sportsnet Stats, this is the fastest a goalie has ever been pulled in a Game 7 (10:47).

This will be the first time the Predators have hosted a Game 7.

These two teams have been involved in some of the most exciting matchups of the year, and this series has not disappointed.

All of Middle Tennessee is rooting on the red-hot Predators, who beat the Colorado Avalanche in Round 1 after making history in the regular season by winning a Central Division title, a regular-season Western Conference crown, and the Presidents' Trophy as the League's top point-getter. Vegas beware: whichever team you end up getting will be battle tested.

As we've seen throughout the back-and-forth six-game series, the game's opening goal has been crucial, particularly when it's been scored by a Nashville team that has appeared content to fluster and frustrate their younger opponents by clogging the neutral zone and buying into playing as a five-man defensive unit. Kenny Albert (play-by-play), Eddie Olczyk (analyst) and Pierre McGuire ('Inside-the-Glass' analyst) will call tonight's Game 7 from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

It looked like the series might be done in that moment, with the Jets celebrating on the Bridgestone Arena ice for the second time with a trip home to the biggest home ice advantage in the league for a chance to close it out.

The Predators need to reproduce their efforts from Games 4 and 6, when their stifling defense frustrated the Jets. We just continued to play our game and all of a sudden it was going our way. Not so fast, my friend. "(The second) goal was just good work by their line, but he had to finish it off. Let's be honest, none of us in this room can make that play.

"It's the final game for one team", Jets coach Paul Maurice said. Road teams are 4-2.

The Flames lost the 2004 Stanley Cup final in seven games to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Connor Hellebuyck yields 2.36 goals per game.

The Jets have lost the opportunity to finish it in Game 6 as the Predators clobbered them. "For us, it's about being great defensively". The other team's a really good team.

Nashville forced tonight's Game 7 showdown with a 4-0 victory in Game 6 in Winnipeg on Monday night.Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson each scored twice, and Pekka Rinne made 34 saves in the win after allowing six goals in a 6-2 loss to the Jets in Game 5. Even more awesome, the two teams' shots and shot attempts are dead even through six games at 177 and 338 respectively.

The Preds are the defending Western Conference champions and are hoping the home crowd helps them outlast a talented Jets team and move on to the conference finals.

My suggestion is to not even bother trying to guess how it will turn out because things could go any which way in one final round between these two heavyweights, who have both been battered yet remain upright and looking to land one final punch.
