NHL: The Jets eliminated, but not the Predators

Nino Niederreiter and the Jets were eliminated in the first round of the NHL play-offs on Tuesday.

Roman Josi’s Predators, on the other hand, obtained the right to play Game 6 against Pius Suter’s Canucks, the Bernese scoring one of his team’s two goals.

With its back against the wall at 1-3 in the series, Winnipeg nevertheless opened the scoring against Colorado after just 75 seconds of play on Tuesday in front of its home crowd, then equalizing at 2-2 and 3-3. But the Jets ended up giving in, the Avalanche forcing the decision with a double from Mikko Rantanan (45th 4-3, 49th 5-3).

Nino Niederreiter, who remained “mute” in this match and must be content with two assists in the series, is therefore likely to join the Swiss team before the start of the World Cup. On the other hand, Roman Josi extended his NHL season by at least three days, with Nashville winning 2-1 in Vancouver on Tuesday.

The Preds captain allowed his team to get back to 1-1 in the 48th minute, scoring his first goal in these play-offs – and his third point in the series – on the power play just over four minutes after Vancouver had taken the advantage. It was Alexandre Carrier who scored the winning goal, in the 53rd minute.

The Rangers against the Hurricanes

A first poster for the 2nd round is also known in the East. Carolina earned the right to face the New York Rangers in the Conference semifinals by defeating the Islanders 6-3 in Act V of the series. The Hurricanes made the difference by scoring twice in eight seconds in the 45th minute to regain the lead (5-3).
