Allegiant adds Grand Forks-Vegas flight for Jets playoff games

Jets ready for quicker series with Vegas after seven game grind against Predators

"A year in a goalie's life makes such a big difference".

Averaging 28.3 saves per game with a.924 save percentage, Connor Hellebuyck (52-27-10) has been the primary option in goal for the Jets this year.

An average audience of three million tuned in to see the Jets beat the Predators 5-1 and advance to the NHL Western Conference final for the first time. With the Jets having 15 goals in the series' first three games, there has been little sign that Nashville can handle the Jets' speed and tempo. Vegas ended up with 109 points in what's been called a fairytale campaign for an expansion team. He has been the driving force behind the Golden Knights' success, as much or more as any other player. "He didn't let us down", captain Roman Josi said of Rinne.

Victories by the Golden Knights and the Capitals in their conference finals would set up a matchup against Prior's old team with the Stanley Cup on the line. Marc Andre-Fleury is in a zone right now, and Vegas has played a very stingy defensive style all year long.

Fleury had five days off in between series while Hellebuyck will have had just 48 hours to prepare for one of the fastest and most potent offenses in the league. He was knocking pucks in the corner and clearing out the front (Thursday night).

"I'm glad our guys have some experience, I'm glad they've got some scars on them", said Predators head coach Peter Laviolette, who has 5-2 record in Game 7s. Look for his line with Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor to lead by example on the scoresheet in this series. That's the second-highest-scoring second line in the National Hockey League. The airline has added two more non-stop flights from Winnipeg to Vegas next week.

Four of Vegas' last ten games have been decided by two goals or more. The Golden Knights did not make Prior available for an interview for this article.

The system is still scheduled for the rest of the country this week, with tests planned for BC and AB on Wednesday afternoon. There was no signal in Quebec and it was being blamed on a space that was incorrectly included in the coding.


The awesome Cinderella story of the Vegas Golden Knights continues to add additional chapters to their magical story and none of their players seem to shy away from the approaching "midnight" hour. The trio has combined for 16 goals and 39 points in 12 playoff games so far. The final four were all among the top six teams in the National Hockey League in the regular season.

If Golden Knights fans are making the trip up North, what can they do to pass the time when the team isn't taking the ice?

Tallon, looking to undo moves made by the regime that replaced him as GM the previous season, made a deal with the Golden Knights: the Knights would take Reilly Smith and his $5 million contract off his hands, and the Knights would get Jonathan Marchessault in the expansion draft.

Vegas' players have been penalized only 3.4 times per game in total this season, and 4.7 per game over their last ten outings. Both teams are just four wins away from the Stanley Cup Final.

The Golden Knights have been resting for nearly a week, after their six game elimination of the San Jose Sharks in round two. Vegas has lost only once on the road in the postseason.

Kelly knows Vegas is an outstanding 4-1 on the road this postseason after going 22-19 outside T-Mobile Arena during the regular season.
