An opponent seemingly on the ropes, a city bubbling with anticipation, a raucous home crowd, and a confident group ready to take its first step into a conference final. As the visiting team, Nashville is 28-18 SU.

Pekka Rinne turned aside all 34 shots he faced in Monday's 4-0 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Head coach Paul Maurice saw the same thing. "It's probably right that it's going seven".

The all important, victor take all game seven is scheduled for Thursday in Nashville. We're going to have to play a near flawless game to beat this team. "We probably weren't moving as well or as sharp as we wanted".

Filip Forsberg had two goals and an assist.

"Desperation", Rinne said after his fifth career playoff shutout.

As the Winnipeg Jets enter Game 6 of their Western Conference Central Division battle against the Nashville Predators tonight on home ice, the official law firm for the Jets -Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP - is amping up its friendly rivalry with Nashville firm Bass Berry & Sims PLC.

"It's the most fun", Forsberg said. "That's the type of player he is and from Game 1 of the playoffs, he has just dominated".

"Just try to enjoy it as much as possible".

That game will occur in Nashville, not in Bell MTS Place, where the Jets have been so dominant this season, only to lose key back-to-back games against the Predators. The way his goals were scored on Monday couldn't have been more different, with the 23-year-old relying on strength and perseverance to register his first of the night at 8:16 of the second period.

Moments after breaking a stick, Forsberg went back to his bench for another.

Viktor Arivdsson provided the marker on an impressive redirection in front of Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck.

After Forsberg made it 2-0, Rinne was there to stop Adam Lowry with his pad before just getting a piece of Mark Scheifele's shot on an abbreviated 2-on-1 to keep Nashville up by two.

Forsberg then took a pass from behind the net, played it between his own legs and beat Hellebuyck for his second of the night and seventh of the playoffs at 5:55 to send the series back to Nashville.

"I don't think there's any question that Fil's a big-game player", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. Nashville needs more production from their second and third lines if they are going to win Game 6. I know you get exhausted of me saying that, but it's the foundation of what we do.

NOTES: Nashville now is 0-4 when trailing after two periods. The road team has won four times in six games.

"It's going to take everyone", defenseman Ryan Ellis said. "And it's a fun atmosphere just like it is here. I mean, they're a risky team".

After a missed opportunity for the Penguins, Ovechkin led the rush back up the ice for the Capitals and flipped the puck right in front of Vrana, who finished it off for a handsome go-ahead goal.

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.

Winnipeg then got its third power play of the period, but it looked a lot like its first as the Predators went to their locker room up 1-0.

"It's been what's given us success all year", Wheeler said.

"You've got to live every day and play every game like it could be the swing game". Teemu Selanne, nicknamed the Finnish Flash for his speed, set the National Hockey League on fire in his rookie season with the Jets in 1992-93. Predators forward Scott Hartnell returned to the lineup after sitting out Game 5 as a healthy scratch.
