A series pitting the NHL's top two regular-season teams has lived up to billing, a titanic, heavyweight fortnight which has not only failed to produce two straight wins by any single team but even within those six games a tug of war of identities and systems prevailing for minutes at a time, but never an entire night.
Myers has played one previous Game 7 in the National Hockey League, with the Buffalo Sabres when they lost 5-2 to the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2011 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. Over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Nashville. And Winnipeg's power play was shooting blanks, going 0-for-4, including 0-for-3 in the first period.

A quick look at the history books shows that Thursday night's showdown in Nashville will be just the fifth such event in Jets history.
On the Winnipeg side, centre Bryan Little didn't take part in the morning skate, but head coach Paul Maurice didn't seem concerned about his availability for Game 6. "We'll look at that, for sure, and try and be better". In Game 1 Nashville tried to go down the middle of the ice and start their offense that way.
