Clarksville, Tn — The Nashville Predators manhandled the Winnipeg Jets tonight with a 4-0 shutout victory in front of a sold out “white out” crowd in Winnipeg.
The win forces a game 7 in Nashville on Thursday night.
The Nashville penalty kill was superb against the Jets, and it had to be since there was only one penalty called against the Jets all night. The Predators fought off six minutes of penalties in the first period alone.

Clarksville, Tn — The Nashville Predators thought they had tied their game with the Florida Panthers tonight, with .05 seconds remaining, when after a video review from Toronto, it was determined that they were guilty of goaltender interference, and the game tying goal from Filip Forsberg was waved off.
Controversy ensued. It was a HORRIBLE call by the NHL.
The Predators had the opportunity to clinch the Central Division of the Western Conference with a three point lead over the Winnipeg Jets who were victorious over the Montreal Canadiens.
