NEWARK Cheap Tre'Davious White Jersey , N.J. (AP) — Jusse Saros gave the Nashville Predators a second chance to win with a save on a short-handed, third-period breakaway.Filip Forsberg and Kyle Turris took care of the rest.Turris made a length of the ice rush and snapped a shot past Keith Kinkaid 3:35 into overtime and the Predators rallied to beat the New Jersey Devils 4-3 on Thursday night.Forsberg forced the overtime with a power-play goal with 6: 20 left in regulation. It came less than a minute after Saros stopped a breakaway by Blake Coleman with the Devils ahead 3-2.“It’s just Juice,” Turris said about the Finnish goaltender who has started the last three games with Vezina Trophy winner Pekka Rinne out with an undisclosed injury. “He comes up big for us every night. He makes saves like that to keep us in games, or keep us in a lead. He’s such a good goalie.”The save and Forsberg’s goal set things up for Turris. He made his rush, used Devils defenseman Andy Greene as a screen and beat Kinkaid.“There’s a lot of space in overtime, it allows you to be creative and use speed and it’s exciting hockey,” Turris said. “It’s always fun to play 3 on 3. I love the open ice.”Viktor Arvidsson and Yannick Weber also scored as the Predators sent the Devils to their third straight loss.“That’s was a big two points and a big comeback and it shows character to come back like that,” said Saros, who finished with 33 saves. “It was a fast game and both teams had some chances, it was a tight one.”Nico Hischier scored twice, Damon Severson added a goal, Kyle Palmieri had a career-high three assists Authentic Tre'Davious White Jersey , and Taylor Hall added two assists — as the Devils’ top line of Hischier, Palmieri and Hall had seven points. Kinkaid made 32 saves.Coleman was disappointed after the game.“I just faked and dropped and tried to go upstairs on the far side,” he said. “He made a good save and in a one-goal game I have to find a way to put that home. It came back to cost us.”Forsberg made the Devils’ pay, scoring from the left circle, his seventh goal of the season. It was only the fourth power-play goal for Nashville in 35 attempts.Saros preserved the tie in the final minutes of the third period, stopping a point-blank power-play chance by Marcus Johansson and a blast by Palmieri.The Devils took a one-goal lead three times with the Hischier, Hall and Palmieri line doing most of the work.Severson gave New Jersey a 1-0 lead 2:58 after the opening faceoff, scoring on a shot from the point after being set up by Hall and Hischier.While the Predators had several great chances in the period, Weber tied the game with his first goal of the season on a soft wrist shot by Kinkaid simply missed.Hischier put the Devils back in front with less seconds left in the period with a power-play goal. Hall made the play, hitting the center stick with a pass that the Swiss center deflected past Saros.Arvidsson, who now has four goals in his last three games, tied the score with 6:54 left in the second period with a shot from the top of the circles which hit off Kinkaid’s glove.New Jersey went back ahead 40 seconds later when Hischier deflected Palmieri’s pass over Saros for his third goal of the season.Notes: The Devils’ Brian Boyle played in his 700th NHL game. … W Ds Ben Lovejoy and Steve Santini on injured reserve http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey , D Eric Gryba played in his first game this season. … Preds D Mattias Ekholm played in his 400th game, while F Colton Sissons appeared in his 200th. … The Predators failed to score on three power plays and are now 3 of 34 for the season. … F Rocco Grimaldi, a California native who was a former second-round draft by Florida, made his debut with Nashville.

What a difference a year makes.A year ago at this time, the Winnipeg Jets weren’t even in the playoffs and the Vegas Golden Knights didn’t even have players.Now they’re getting ready to pit their depth, speed and two of the postseason’s best goaltenders against each other when the Western Conference final gets underway in Winnipeg on Saturday night.”We know what they bring, we know that they’re good, that they maybe surprised a few teams, but not really,” said Paul Stastny, whose Jets advance to the final with a Game 7 victory over the Predators on Thursday night. ”They had 109 points. In a sense they play like us, they have a lot of depth and they can roll four lines and they have good Cheap Christian McCaffrey Jersey , puck-moving D. So we’re going to have our hands full for sure.”Vegas beat the Jets in two of their three regular-season meetings, splitting the two games in Winnipeg and winning the lone meeting at T-Mobile Arena. Two of those games were with Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury out with an injury.Fleury has had a tremendous postseason, registering four shutouts, a .951 save percentage and 1.53 goals-against average – all career bests. Appearing in his first postseason, Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck has a 2.24 GAA and a .927 save percentage.Fleury had five days off in between series while Hellebuyck will have had just 48 hours to prepare for one of the fastest and most potent offenses in the league.”It is a quick turnaround,” Hellebuyck said Thursday night. ”We’re going to get our rest, we’re going to enjoy tonight and get back to it. Rest is a weapon, but I think the way we battle in this room, I think we’re prepared for anything.”Here are other things to watch in this series:SCORINGThe Jets have some of the best scoring depth of any team in the NHL, led by 44-goal scorer Patrik Laine. And he’s on the second line. Winnipeg’s top line of Kyle Connor, Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler scored a combined 208 points in the regular season. The Jets’ second line wasn’t far behind, with Laine Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey , Stastny and Nikolaj Ehlers scoring 183 points. Winnipeg is tied with Washington for the most goals (43) during the playoffs.Vegas also boasts two potent lines but is capable of rolling four dangerous lines to balance the scoring across 12 forwards. The Golden Knights had four players finish with at least 60 points this season, led by William Karlsson (43 goals, 35 assists). Linemates Jonathan Marchessault (75 points) and Reilly Smith (60 points) complete one of the best lines in the NHL.RAGING ROOKIESBoth teams have first-year phenoms who can’t be overlooked.Vegas’ Alex Tuch has four goals and three assists as the sole postseason rookie for the Golden Knights.Winnipeg forward Kyle Connor scored his first two career playoff goals and added an assist in Game 5 against Nashville to become the first rookie in franchise history to post a three-point game in the playoffs. Connor, who scored nine goals over his last 13 regular-season games, had two assists in the Jets’ 5-1 victory over the Predators in Game 7.REST OR RUSTThe Golden Knights may have the advantage of rested legs, but they also will catch a dangerous Jets team that could still be fueled by momentum from Thursday’s win. Vegas had a long layoff after the first round and beat the Sharks 7-0 in Game 1 of the next series. But San Jose also had extended time off.ROAD WARRIORSBoth teams have shown they can win on the road in the playoffs.The Golden Knights won Games 3 and 4 in Los Angeles to complete a first-round sweep of the Kings, then took Games 3 and 6 in San Jose. Vegas has lost only once on the road in the postseason.Winnipeg is 4-2 on the road in the playoffs after splitting a pair in Minnesota in its opening-round series against the Wild. They took three on Nashville’s home ice.—
