Golden Knights, Jets the big playoff TV draws in Canada

Golden Knights, Jets the big playoff TV draws in Canada

He said he took in as many games as he could and was there the night the Kings raised the Stanley Cup for the first time. The pair noted they realized early on Saskatchewan had the opportunity to claim Vegas as their team, with a high contingent of Canadian players and plenty of direct flights to Sin City.

Connor Hellebuyck had 25 saves for the Jets.

Shunock recalls one night in particular walking on stage and hearing someone in the crowd shout "We're from Sault!"

The Vegas Golden Knights go into tonight's home game tied 1-1 in the best-of-7 Western Conference final against Canada's only remaining team in the playoffs, the Winnipeg Jets.

"They're opportunistic, kind of in the same sense we can be", Trouba said. "We knew they weren't going to just fold and let us take two at home". The Golden Knights have been a solid offensive team this year, but that offense hasn't really shown up in the postseason and I will look for Connor Hellebuyck to keep it that way. "We've got ourselves a series".

The 29-year-old led the Golden Knights in assists during the 2017-18 regular-season with 50 and was third on the team in points with 66.

"Everybody is going to bed early". "We got a couple posts on us, and we were not right". "At this time of the year, it's all business". Everybody is buying into that.

Once rumour began getting around that Las Vegas was going to apply for an National Hockey League franchise, Shunock felt the need to get involved.

There's no concern whatsoever about curfew or anything of that nature.

"We'll be ready to bounce back", veteran Jets centre Paul Stastny said after the loss. "It's playoffs. You've got to put your nose to the grindstone".

Stop us if you've heard this before.

The line also combined for a goal and four points in the series opener. In the end, they settled it the way you might expect from competitive professional.

"It was just a loose puck and it clicked off the inside of the post".

"I'm just pumped", he said.

On October 1, when a gunman opened fire on the Las Vegas strip leaving 58 people dead and 851 injured, days before the Golden Knights home opener, it drastically changed the team's launch plans.

Winnipeg has one win in five games in the playoffs when it doesn't score first; Vegas is 2-2 when its opponent gets the first goal. T-Mobile Arena has been packed and loud, and the building shouldn't be underestimated as a factor in the Golden Knights' 3-1 home postseason record with the only loss coming in the controversial Game 2 defeat to the Sharks. Finally, when Scheifele was finished, they had an emphatic game of rock, paper, scissors to see who went next.

Jets captain Blake Wheeler said the team, which was practising in Vegas late Tuesday afternoon, needs to improve its response.

"I don't want them thinking we're going to change things because the head coach is anxious about this and that", Gallant said. The Jets had a day off, but a long flight in. You want to come back stronger.
