(Nashville) Predators stay alive (vs. Winnipeg Jets)

Ut-oh. Series tied 3-3, game 7 in Nashville. Winner plays the Vegas Golden Knights in the NHL semis.

Vegas?

Will the rink be filled with Elvises?
You laugh, but if the Jets make it there they will have to go to the visiting team's Golden showers after the games.

Anyhow, yes.

1-1, the first Vegas game - with Elvises and Golden showers, of course - is tonight.

Hockey ice 44 feet wide, goal 6 feet wide.

Ouch, that caromed almost 20 feet and with enough velocity still to get by the goalie. Here's the video:

I saw it happen, but it still seems pretty impossible that the puck could bounce that far off anything that wasn't a hard surface. Maybe the ref was eyeing some cute fan at the time?
