Golden Knights beat Sharks 5-3 in Game 5

Golden Knights beat Sharks 5-3 in Game 5

About 20 percent of the seats in T-Mobile Arena remain for individual game ticket sales, which open this summer after National Hockey League schedules come out. Logan Couture's goal in the second extra period last Saturday night enabled San Jose to win Game 2 in Vegas.

"We were physical, we were playing well, and it was a very good game by everyone", Tuch said. "It was a strong game by everyone".

William Karlsson scored twice for Vegas, while Nate Schmidt got his first of the post-season to tie the score at 3-3 with 6 1/2 minutes left in the third period. Boedker then added an even strength goal with 4:16 to go in regulation to narrow the lead to one.

Jonathan Marchessault gained possession of the puck between the circles in the defensive zone, skated to the top of the STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS 2018 signage that sits underneath the ice about 20 feet inside his blue line, settled the puck and took aim for the wide-open net 145 feet away on the opposite end of the rink. We'll for sure come back, I believe.

"I had a great view, I was right behind it, it was great, I was so happy to see it going in", Fleury said. "They're all big. Obviously, it was nice to be home and get that win". Aaron Dell came on and stopped all six shots he faced.

Despite the three-goal lapse late in the game, Fleury was spectacular in net, making 30 saves and stoning San Jose for two and a half periods.

It's been that way consistently through their inaugural season, and continued Friday night as they beat the Sharks 5-3 to push them to the brink of elimination and move within one game of the Western Conference Finals. Golden Knights 5, Sharks 3. "We just come to work, do the best we can and hopefully that's good enough to win". They won four straight Game 5s in their run in 2016 to the Stanley Cup Final, and lost Game 5 in Edmonton past year in the first round before they lost the series in six. "We push each other to be our best and tonight we needed everyone's best".

Headquartered at Naval Air Station Mayport, the 4th Fleet is made up of 170 sailors and civilians and is responsible for U.S. The new command will oversee training and operations for asssigned units on the East Coast and in the North Atlantic.

"I told him I was probably going to break my stick if he missed ... on him", Vegas Golden Knights teammate David Perron said, laughing. However, Marchessault's empty-netter with 21 seconds left sealed it for Vegas.

Tuch made it 2-0 when he tapped in Reilly Smith's rebound past Jones on the power play.

Hertl helped give Jones a cushion with his goal early in the second. Just 32 seconds later Tuch scored for a 2-0 Vegas lead.

Kevin Labanc, Tomas Hertl and Mikkel Boedker all scored in the third period, with Hertl's goal at the 11:44 mark of the third cutting Vegas' lead to 4-2.

In Game 1, Vegas blocked 26 shots, to the Sharks' 13, but San Jose held a 36-26 edge in Game 2.

Just over two minutes later, Hertl recorded his sixth goal of the playoffs when Boedker attempted a wrap-around that found its way to Hertl in the crease who lifted the puck past Fleury.
