The series is tied at a game apiece after Jonathan Marchessault scored twice and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots to help the Knights knock off the Jets, 3-1 at Winnipeg. The Jets found out the hard way on Monday. And he passed with flying colours.
The champion of the Western Conference will play against the victor of the Eastern Conference matchup between Washington and Tampa Bay. It wasn't a work of art. Then an errant defensive play from the Knights ended with a shot off the post in tight from Andrew Copp. The Golden Knights converted theirs - and early.
And then, just as suddenly, it was 3-1. "That's not my problem".
While the Jets lost for the third time in the past four home games after ripping off a 13-game winning streak at MTS Place that dates back to March 1, they have plenty of reasons to be feeling good about the way they've played on the road in the post-season. He has 15 points (6 G, 9 A) in 12 playoff games and, in the playoffs, Vegas has outscored the opposition 11-2 during 5-on-5 play with Marchessault on the ice. Marchessault screamed past the Jets defense for a breakaway, and effortlessly deked the goalie before sliding the puck between his pads for the goal. "It's the conference final so you're going to have two of the best teams playing each other and both teams are aggressive, both teams don't sit back when they have the lead". "The first one [from Scheifele], it just trickled".
Every time the Jets got in close, Vegas threw everything they had in the way of shots. The first two times they did it, they wound up losing the series. Despite his production, he was left exposed in the expansion draft. Fleury has an NHL-best 1.68 goals-against average and.945 save percentage this postseason among goaltenders who have appeared in at least five games.
That's not to throw any shade in Connor Hellebuyck's direction.
A Connor goal midway through the third period pushed the Jets to within 2-1, but Marchessault scored his second of the game 98 seconds later, as the result of a poor neutral-zone pinch from Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba.
We're used to the whiteout crowd in Winnipeg being loud, rowdy, and nonstop, but for a 30-minute stretch, they looked perplexed as they sat on their hands almost silent. "It was a good push but we knew they were going to come. They aren't going to roll over for us, they're going to come back with a great game". They're gonna create some momentum and put the puck in the net. The Lightning, the top team in the East this season, have been outscored 10-4 in the first two games, getting outplayed in every facet. The Golden Knights worked the puck around to Tatar and after being denied on the first try, he tucked in the loose puck under Hellebuyck for his first goal of the playoffs. But Fleury was at his best and snuffed out any comeback attempt. He needs to get in the minds of a Winnipeg team that is spilling over with offensive talent.
All Laine was doing on Saturday morning was trying to downplay the edge Fleury gives his teammates.
As good as the Sharks were, the Jets are a different beast. Their 32.8 shots-per-game tied them for 10th in the league. "I mean he hasn't been tested that much the games I saw". We don't get satisfied. We're going to go to Vegas.
Winnipeg'sMark Scheifele, who has postseason-high 12 goals, got the puck past Fleury in the opening moments of the game and Vegas defenseman Nate Schmidt cleared it from the crease.
