Vegas Golden Knights are Golden in Game 3 over Winnipeg Jets

Vegas Golden Knights are Golden in Game 3 over Winnipeg Jets

Marchessault became the first player in National Hockey League history to score in the first and last minute of the same Stanley Cup Playoff game. Vegas fans responded accordingly, viciously waving their rally towels in the air.

The largest Golden Knights jersey in this town hangs over the shoulders of the fake Lady Liberty outside the phony New York, New York, along The Strip, the most pretentious street in North America.

The Golden Knights' defence kept them so bottled up that they were held to just three shots on net in the first period.

He tapped in a pass from Erik Haula from behind the net just 12 seconds after Mark Scheifele had tied the game by tipping a puck between his legs and past Fleury. Games like these get overcome by the teams that hoist Big Stanley, or separate the wheat from the chaffe along the playoff road, by weeding out those who can't. The Jets were missing Nikolaj Ehlers and Vegas was missing David Perron.

The Vegas Golden Knights can take complete control of this series with another victory and a 3-1 lead.

"The response there is huge", Neal told NBC's Brian Boucher. "We've got to do that for a full 60 minutes". It's always the worst when someone scores right after you do. Around Christmas time, we played them and saw they are the real deal.

Scheifele, though, wasn't finished.

Jonathan Marchessault scored twice, including an empty-netter, for Las Vegas with Alex Tuch also contributing a goal to the victory.

Early in the third Mark Scheifele scored to cut the Jets deficit to one. Those tallies have come on just 17 shots, for a sky-high shooting percentage of 65.

"A better start." One with less mistakes. The Jets sensed vulnerability as well. Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves, but a costly turnover to Haula behind the net led to Neal's goal. If the Jets move on to the Stanley Cup final, it'll be hard to argue anyone else's case for the Conn Smythe Trophy.

The goal came just a dozen seconds after the Jets had tied it, 1-1 - the ultimate momentum killer.

"It's insane. I just saw it on the replay. I was late coming there, too, so I tried to get as much body as I could in front of it and get a piece of it".

The Jets need more than Scheifele going in this series.

"At that point, it's what we expect from Flower", Vegas sniper Jonathan Marchessault said. "He's so good, he's been calm and cool every game".

Now, the Jets will have to get their heads around their first two-game losing streak since mid-March, and the fact that they are trailing in a playoff series for the first time this spring.

If Vegas' offense comes alive in Game 4, Fleury's margin of error is a bit higher, which means the concession of a single goal won't hurt his team's chances of winning. Without Fleury, the Golden Knights wouldn't be two wins away from the Stanley Cup Final. His line threatened to score on more shifts than not.

Washington needs to rebound from a Game 3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. Neither team has won at home in the series.

The victor of the series advances to the Stanley Cup to face the victor of the Eastern Conference final between the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning. "In tight hockey games between two pretty evenly-matched teams, it was a big response from us". He also has nine multi-point games.

In stretches of Game 3, they did.
