Jets Look To Extend Series Lead Over Golden Knights

Jets Look To Extend Series Lead Over Golden Knights

The Golden Knights had all the momentum after the goal and it lasted most of the game, save for the one Jets goal. "And they knew that, and they had to respond tonight, and they did in a big way".

Vegas goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 30 of 31 shots; his stellar performance once again continues his story as one of the most polarizing players in the Stanley Cup Playoffs thus far.

Unlike other National Hockey League teams, which fire general managers and coaches if they don't quickly have success, the Jets have allowed general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff to build a championship contender since hiring him in 2011 when they left Atlanta. "We got a couple of posts on us and we were not right". The other three minutes, not so much.

Marchessault was the one immediately after Game 1 who called Monday night a "must-win" and said we would find out what the Golden Knights are made of.

With San Jose leading 1-0 and controlling the action to the point they held a 27-12 advantage in shots on goal, James Neal put a ideal pass on Colin Miller's stick at the far post to tie the game at 9:40 of the second period.

"There was about 57 minutes of that game that was pretty good for us", Wheeler said.

"I just think when good teams have a lead they keep their foot on the gas, they want the next goal", he said. A wrist shot by Kyle Connor from a challenging angle squirted through Fleury, and it was suddenly 2-1 with 12:43 left. The Jets looked out of sync for the most part and didn't generate a whole lot of scoring chances after the first period.

"Their two power play goals swung the momentum, but I didn't think our discipline was a problem", DeBoer said. It was just a turnover, kind of a lack of communication with the line change.

After the Jets had a number of chances during an early push Monday - including a shot from Mark Scheifele that almost squeaked through Fleury's pads and a Nikolaj Ehlers shot off the post - Winnipeg sagged a bit before Vegas opened the scoring with 6:37 left in the first. Then moments later the snake-bitten Nikolaj Ehlers who has been held goalless throughout the playoffs hit the crossbar. Marchessault made a nice move to beat Connor Hellebuyck and the Golden Knights were on their way. There's certainly value in the Jets and the plus money, but I've been backing the Golden Knights all season and it's paid off. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed three or less goals in seven of their last 10 games. But the buzz in the air was quickly neutralized when Marchessault fired his second goal of the contest on a backhand just 88 seconds later. Reilly Smith had the only assist on Marchessault's fifth goal of the post-season. Vegas outshot the Jets 13-11 in the opening period. Both teams will likely have strong second and third periods, receive solid goaltending, and play relatively disciplined games.

With 12:43 left in regulation time Connor brought the building back to life. Frequently, these rushes were led by defensemen Jacob Trouba, Tyler Myers, or Dustin Byfuglien.

But just a little over a minute later the Knights silenced the crowd again.

"I'm definitely satisfied with our effort tonight", Marchessault said.

All things considered, they missed out on a golden opportunity to grab a 2-0 lead in this series. That made Monday's return to the lineup, his first appearance since Game 4 of the Sharks' series on May 2, a little more hard. They are only the third major sports team to complete a four-game sweep in their first postseason series and the only one to do it in their inaugural year. The shot count ended 8-8 for the period, leaving Vegas with a slight edge overall of 21-19.
