"We don't change anything".

"For me, I don't care how we win".

"Your goal on the road is to definitely steal one", said Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who had 27 saves. "They pounced on a loose puck and we chased the game". There's a reason we're one and two in the West.

Game 5 is Saturday night in Tennessee, and the Predators have wrested home-ice advantage back in the matchup of the NHL's two best teams during the regular season.

The Predators got off to a another strong strong start as forward Ryan Hartman scored off of a broken play putting Nashville up 1-0 heading into the second period. Rinne stretched across the crease and reached out with his stick, just getting the knob in the path of the puck.

Bryan Little summed it up as best as anyone could.

As the stick of Rinne was falling out of his hands, the butt end magically appeared on the ice and prevented the shot from crossing the goal line.

Winnipeg advanced to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since relocating from Atlanta in 2011, brushing aside the Minnesota Wild in five games.

As it turns out, a goalie change wasn't required. The 20-year-old managed to snap his six-game goalless drought in the process.

"Now the series is tied".

P.K. Subban didn't get heckled as long and as loud as he normally does from Winnipeg Jets fans on Thursday. "We just competed a little bit harder". At least that goal gave us a chance to tie the game.

"We don't change anything (moving forward in the series)", Jets captain Blake Wheeler said, according to the Winnipeg Free Press.

"I'm going to play my game, get up in the play and get physical", he said.

Nashville opened the scoring late in the first period. "In our zone when bounces didn't go our way, we worked the puck out". Subban notched his third of the playoffs - all against Winnipeg - in the second while on the power play.

Subban unloaded a one-timer from the point and took advantage of screens by Viktor Arvidsson and Craig Smith to score his third goal of this series - which proved to be the game-winner.

Laine got the Jets on the board with Subban in the box at 19:09 of the third period by squeezing a wrister from the left circle through Rinne's pads, but Winnipeg couldn't equalize.
