WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice wants the Jets to focus on fun, not the magnitude of Sunday's game against the Vegas Golden Knights.
The expansion Golden Knights are up 3-1 in the best-of-seven Western Conference final and could eliminate the Jets and reach the Stanley Cup Final with a victory.
"These are the best games, always are, when everything is on the line," Maurice said Saturday. "Everybody will be at their most excited. You have to find a way, and it shouldn't be very difficult, to love every minute of it. ... This has to be your finest hour. Before the puck drops, I'm not talking about the play, be able to get your mind that this is the most fun game of the year now."
