Golden Knights top Jets 3-1, tie up Western Conference finals

17 May 2018

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights evened the Western Conference final at 1-1 Monday with a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets' netminder misplayed the puck behind the net, and James Neal cashed in 12 seconds after Scheifele's tally to give Vegas the lead back. You think you have the momentum. Las Vegas is 14-2 in its last 16 games versus teams with a winning road record.

According to oddsmakers, the Golden Knights are a -145 favorite to win on the moneyline.

The Nashville clash had also been knotted 1-1 and 2-2.

"I was just sitting there and people, they were fighting", Fleury said, "and (I was) trying to have a little smile by myself".

"It's a long series". If Vegas wins it - still a big if at this point, but we're just playing with hypotheticals here - that would be his fourth.

The expansion Vegas squad quelled doubters in the first round with a sweep of Los Angeles. They can at least feel good about dominating the third period on Wednesday night-but they have still dropped the past two games, losing home-ice advantage as a result.

"We know their crowd's going to be excited", Stastny said.

The Jets closed the scoreless second period and started the third on the power play and still couldn't get the puck past Fleury.

A corner of the building had appeared to cave in, with siding blown off and windows shattered, due to the force of the explosion. A voicemail recording at her business said the spa was closed through Monday and would reopen Tuesday, the day of the blast.

The Winnipeg Jets and Vegas Golden Knights have intrigued Canadian hockey fans this post-season, if television ratings are any indication. The Winnipeg Jets are missing right wing Nikolaj Ehlers, while the Vegas Golden Knights will be without winger David Perron.

"A few miscues and they made us pay for it; that can't happen", Scheifele said.

The Winnipeg Jets probably should have won game three, as they were aggressive on offense pretty much from start to finish, had quality look after quality look but the puck wouldn't go in.

Specific numbers weren't immediately available Tuesday, but the National Hockey League says the team's overall North American sales have been very strong.

"We've just got to stay with it better, realize that they have some guys on their team that can make plays as well", he said.

Nik Ehlers- when is he going to score? No matter your opinion of him as a goalie, no matter what you remember about his postseason meltdowns in the middle part of his career, the people that vote on the Hall of Fame would never, ever, keep that sort of resume out.

Despite the loss, it was the kind of game he enjoys. His goose egg in Game 3 wasn't for a lack of trying-he recorded nine shots during his 25:36 of ice time. "Heavy on both sides", Wheeler said. He came back to break a 1-1 tie with his second-period goal, and he added an assist a couple of minutes later.
