Las Vegas evens Stanley Cup series with Winnipeg

Las Vegas evens Stanley Cup series with Winnipeg

The Jets built a 3-0 lead before Saturday's series opener was even eight minutes old and had enough quality looks to do something similar in Game 2.

Ultimately, Vegas clapped back with their own quick start to take Game Two in a similar fashion to Winnipeg's Game 1 victory.

"We made some adjustments and were able to get those two killed off in overtime", Dillon said. We have to make sure we come out with the same intensity that we did tonight and maybe a little bit extra.

"It was pretty easy to see that it was going to happen", McCrimmon said.

How has a franchise, which has largely been an afterthought in the league, gone from finishing fifth or worse in its division the previous three seasons to having one of the world's best hockey teams?

Golden Knights forward James Neal said that the performances of Tatar, and fellow returnee Tomas Nosek, epitomized what the team has been doing all season.

Tatar's shot hit the post, he got the puck back and then slid it around the post past Hellebuyck, who finished with 25 saves.

As of Monday, the average sales price on StubHub for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals against the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday - the Knights' first home game this round - was $488.

"There was about 57 minutes of that game that were good for us", Wheeler said. "We got a couple of posts on us and we were not right". The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 23.4 percent of their power play opportunities. "You have to bring your A-game to get to that same level".

All of a sudden Fleury, who registered career playoff win No. 71 to tie Jacques Plante on the all-time victory list, was smiling again.

"Everybody steps up at some point", Fleury said. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed three or less goals in seven of their last 10 games.

But instead of giving the Jets an expected boost, Marchessault and the Golden Knights replied one minute, 28 seconds later, restoring the two-goal cushion and essentially putting the game on ice - turning the Western Conference final into a best-of-five while stealing home-ice advantage. "Just try to shoot as many pucks as we can". After a win or lose, the next day, we all know it's a new day. Just 30 seconds into the game Mark Scheifele got the puck under Marc-Andre Fleury but it was swept away at the last possible moment.

That's not to throw any shade in Connor Hellebuyck's direction.

"It's not about proving anything", Tatar said. Fleury was peppered with shots and stopped five unsafe ones in the first three minutes.

Jonathan Marchessault made it 2-0 before the end of the first period as Reilly Smith out-fought Kyle Connor for the puck at center and his pass to Marchessault sent the winger in on a breakaway from the blueline in. Smith has just one goal in the playoffs, but he's managed to collect an impressive 13 assists in 12 games.

A particularly feisty Marchessault stared through the bright lights and bouquet of microphones in the crowded locker room, told reporters the next game was a "must win" and that "we are going to show what kind of team we are".

Notes: Game 6, if necessary, will be May 22 in Vegas, while a potential Game 7 would go May 24 in Winnipeg.
