Chris Jericho Challenges Predators Superfan Carrie Underwood With $10K Hockey Bet

- After double OT last night, I may have trouble staying up for the Vegas/San Jose game, but I will be curious to see how Vegas handle their first taste of playoff adversity. It was his second goal of the series and it was not a good goal for Connor Hellebuyck. It's very dumb that this series is being played in Round 2 and not Round 3, the Western Conference Final, but at least it's being played.

We'll start with what the Predators are doing well.

For Fiala and the Predators, there was little panic in the crazed end-to-end action of overtime, as they traded chances with the Jets. Smith eventually passed the puck to Kevin Fiala who scored the final goal of the night.

Instead of pelting Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck with a seemingly endless flurry of shots from all over the ice, Nashville was more selective and more accurate in Game 2 in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs before a packed Bridgestone Arena.

Fiala's goal in Game 2 should give that line the spark to get back to their regular season form.

Predators forward Filip Forsberg collected his fifth goal of the playoffs at 7:40 of the third to tie it 4-4 with Winnipeg forward Jack Roslovic in the box for interference, but then Jets captain Blake Wheeler grabbed the reins.

The Predators top line was rolling all night.

Saudi coalition airstrike kills 38 Houthis
The blockade has since been partially lifted, but access to the impoverished country remains limited. Houthi militias have been targeting various Saudi cities, mainly those near the Saudi-Yemeni border.

Not long after that, Winnipeg's Dustin Byfuglien buried Colton Sissons along the boards; later Big Buff dropped the Predators' villainous P.K. Subban, much to the raucous audience's delight.

The Jets took four offensive zone penalties - two by Hendricks and one each by Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little - costing them a goal against and a goal for.

"You've got to create your own momentum, but it gives you good memories", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. They were actually much better than they were in their 4-1 win in Game 1. Jacob Trouba's shot from the point hit Paul Stastny's leg and beat Pekka Rinne.

In Game 2 Laine had seven shots on goal, but all of those were from outside the faceoff dots except for one. If the Preds can continue to keep that line on the outside, they'll no doubt have success.

I chatted with a couple of Nashville fans who made the trek to Winnipeg for Game 3 and you could see a few gold jerseys standing out in the sea of white Tuesday night. While he doesn't get the spotlight among his Predators teammates, the 21-year-old winger made some serious noise in his first full National Hockey League campaign despite averaging what amounts to nothing more than bottom-six minutes.

They did that, and a whole lot more. With the net still empty, Brandon Tanev, who played hard for every second of the 13 minutes and 38 seconds of icetime he logged, led a rush and scored another empty netter to give the Jets a 7-4 win. That's considerably better than the $500 US, some Jets fans were paying for Game in Music City ... They're not going to choke away a three to one series lead. He did it past year and did again tonight. It was the first goal of the playoffs for Carrie Underwood's husband. I slid on my knees and got some pretty gnarly carpet burns.

Veteran forward Mathieu Perreault (upper body), injured in Game 1 of the first-round series with the Minnesota Wild, and winger Joel Armia (upper body), hurt in Game 5 of the Wild series, also skated. I didn't scream in jubilation.
