The country singer and American Idol victor, Underwood lives in Nashville and cheers on husband Mike Fisher as often as she can. The Jets killed off the penalty, and Scheifele beat Rinne with a long shot with 2:09 left in the second for a 3-0 lead that silenced the sold-out crowd.
And after no response from Underwood, Jericho was on 680 CJOB in Winnipeg and challenged her to a $10k bet where the money will go to the charity of the winner's choosing.
The game was on the road, but the party was at home as the Winnipeg Jets took on the Predators in Nashville Friday night for the Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Despite putting 48 shots on Hellebuyck, Kevin Fiala's third-period goal was the only one that eluded the Vezina Trophy finalist.
Toby Enstrom - The veteran blueliner returned to action for the Jets, and didn't have an easy time of it (8 for, 30 against, 21.1 CF%, 6-16 scoring chances) alongside partner Dustin Byfuglien. The Predators had lot of shots yet only one crossed the red line. "But like I said we'll look at it and try to get better".

Pekka Rinne allowed three goals on 14 shots and was pulled after the second period. Paul Stastny found the back of the net at 9:01 to increase the lead.
Nashville finished the period with 20 shots, a franchise postseason record for a period, with Hellebuyck continuing his shutout streak started with consecutive shutouts to finish off Minnesota in the first round.
Hellebuyck made 47 saves in the victory and has only allowed one goal in his last three starts.
Despite a great season and mostly strong work in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Rinne's had his low moments in the National Hockey League (as, honestly, most goalies not named Henrik Lundqvist tend to suffer if they get to hang around long enough). They are both great goalies but Hellebuyck was the only one to show up in Game 1.
"There's certainly things we can do better, and we'll try to take those adjustments and improvements and bring them into Game 2, but for me, it's just about that realization that we lost", Laviolette said. The case can be made that majority of the shots were not high quality. When the third period began, Peter Laviolette chose to give Rinne the hook in favor of Juuse Saros.
Scheifele added an empty-net goal in the final minute of the game.
