Winnipeg, Manitoba is rarely mentioned as a destination that needs to be on your vacation itinerary. But anyone who's traveled to the hockey-mad city to witness the hometown Jets take the ice at Bell MTS Place knows it's a true spectacle of sport - especially in the playoffs.

For everyone who couldn't make the trip to southern Manitoba, here are some of the best photos and clips from the Jets' 7-4 smackdown of the Nashville Predators in Game 3.

The game, the crowd, the atmosphere - Tuesday night was a special one for the Winnipeg whiteout.

The calm before the storm.

Two CF-18 Hornets from the Royal Canadian Air Force helped get the crowd fired up before puck drop.

Apparently, the Jets faithful got the memo about the all-white attire.

Yeah, that atmosphere looks like a little bit of fun.

What's a postseason hockey game without crushing a few cold ones?

Make sure the sound is on and up for this clip of Dustin Byfuglien's go-ahead goal. Seems just a wee bit rowdy at Bell MTS Place.

Speaking of Big Buff, he had one of the best postseason games of his career, notching two goals and an assist.

Head to toe, hockey heads in Winnipeg are doing it right.

Blake Wheeler's game-winning goal in the third period sealed the victory for the Jets on a ridiculously raucous night in the Peg.
