The whiteout is heading south of the border as the Winnipeg Jets face the Nashville Predators in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Jets will have to eliminate the NHL’s top regular-season team if they want to advance to the third round of the playoffs.

The Jets enter Nashville with the second-best record in the west as they look to dominate the Predators in the conference semifinal.

Nashville advanced to the Stanley Cup final last season.

The winner of the Nashville-Winnipeg series will advance and eventually meet the winner of the Las Vegas-San Jose tilt in the Western Conference final.
