The Winnipeg Jets beat the Nasvhille Predators 6-2 on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena, to take a 3-2 lead in their second-round series.

As the six goals would indicate, the Jets got offensive production up and down the lineup. But 21-year-old forward Kyle Connor really put on a show for Winnipeg in the road victory.

And his most incredible play on the night was on an assist.

With the Jets leading 4-2, the Predators were hoping to get things going early in the third period, and Connor quickly made sure that wasn’t going to happen. Connor made an insane between-the-legs move to fool one Nashville defender, and got another defender to bite — and had the full attention of Pekka Rinne — before dropping a beautiful pass to teammate Mark Scheifele.

Scheifele buried it for the Winnipeg goal:

The Jets now go back home where they can close out the series in Game 6 on Monday.
