Despite their playoff inexperience — the Jets have used 10 players in the postseason who had never played a playoff game — they are halfway to their goal.

“I think right now we’re just thrilled to move on and we’re pretty pleased to knock off a team like Nashville,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. “That was every bit the series we expected it to be. What a great team they are.

“There’s no doubt why they had the best regular-season record (53-18-11, 117 points) and they’re just tough from top to bottom and made our life miserable all series. And it’s what we tried to do to them as well.

“It’s too bad one of us had to be knocked off here. I think nights like tonight, you really try to soak it in and enjoy it and then wake up tomorrow and get ready for a big game on Saturday.”
