Get ready for this one.I can't get into too much more detail just yet, because of how I found this, but out am told the Habs are trying to land a legit #1 center from a Central Division.and they are willing to give up ALOT.including a player I thought was untouchable.more to come tonight or tomorrow. "They had 109 points".

"It is a quick turnaround", Hellebuyck said Thursday night.

Marc-Andre Fleury is a tough matchup for the Jets. "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".

Vegas will have to find ways to keep Mark Scheifele off the board. The Jets' second line wasn't far behind, with Laine, Stastny and Nikolaj Ehlers scoring 183 points. "He's such a good guy you sometimes talk more of the person than you do how good of a goalie he is", said veteran Vegas left-winger James Neal. He's also notched four shutouts. Linemates Jonathan Marchessault (75 points) and Reilly Smith (60 points) complete one of the best lines in the National Hockey League.

As hockey's hottest team, Vegas has yet to disappoint when it matters most, winning their first two post-season series by sweeping the L.A. Kings then finishing off the San Jose Sharks in six games.

Prior faced a big challenge early in the team's first season, when Fleury missed almost two months with a concussion.

Winnipeg is 4-2 on the road in the playoffs after splitting a pair in Minnesota in its opening-round series against the Wild. The Jets suffered consecutive home losses in its second-round playoff series against Nashville.
