ST. LOUIS, Missouri - As a team, the Winnipeg Jets might be young, but the experience they gained during last year's playoffs could pay dividends tonight in Game 6 against the St. Louis Blues.
Winnipeg trails the best-of-seven series 3-2, but they know they can perform in big games, just as they did in Nashville in 2018 in Game 7.
Back on that night, the Jets were coming off a tough loss, just as they are tonight.
"We got beat 4-0 on an empty net in Game 6. It was that feeling 'we have to go back now.' Postgame it's a terrible place to be in that room," said Jets head coach Paul Maurice. "The next day, there is tension but you start to build. By the time we got to Game 7, we're going out there and they're smiling and they're excited. We're trying to recreate that now."
