Vegas Golden Knights grab back home ice advantage in OT win

Vegas Golden Knights grab back home ice advantage in OT win

For the second-straight time, the home team left with heads hung low as William Karlsson netted the victor breaking through the neutral zone and zipping a wrister above the right shoulder of Martin Jones, securing Vegas' 4-3 victory and a 2-1 series lead. Tomas Hertl's game-tying goal with less than two minutes to go in regulation came with several bodies near the crease.

The 49ers quarterback is at tonight's Sharks playoff game against the Las Vegas Golden Knights and served the same role his head coach did almost two weeks ago.

Minutes later Jonathan Marchessault scored the Golden Knights' second power play goal of the game on a one-timer following a great cross-ice pass by Alex Tuch. It's the fourth postseason that this has occurred since 1975, when the playoffs first saw four second-round series contested. He scored 43 goals for the Golden Knights in the regular season after being selected in the expansion draft last summer.

Sharks: There wasn't much Martin Jones could have done on either of Vegas' power play goals in the second period, but he allowed at least three goals for the third consecutive game.

"We weren't too happy with this as a team", said Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who made Karlsson's victor possible by robbing Couture earlier in the OT. "We're down 2-1. It doesn't matter how you got there or what the score was in any of the games, we're down 2-1 and we've got a big game".

The Vegas Golden Knights had a very easy win in game one of this series, but they were clearly in a dogfight in game two.

The contest went into overtime for the second straight time until at the 8:17 mark Karlsson scored the winning goal to ruin the courageous comeback mounted by the Bay area Sharks.

The Sharks have a 39-30 advantage in shots on goal through 60 minutes of hockey. San Jose made no other changes. He stopped each of San Jose's 16 shots in the first period, and kept his team within striking distance headed into the second.

Fluery, who was shelled with 47 shots in a 4-3 double-overtime loss on Saturday, was pelted yet again on Monday night.

The Knights lead the series 2-1 heading into Game 4 at 7 p.m. Wednesday. He is expected to replace Ryan Carpenter and play alongside David Perron and Cody Eakin on Vegas' third line after skating with that group during morning skate. "But each game has its own identity, you can't rest on what you did last game and just hope they walk away". "It's a hard rink to play in and it's loud so we have to be ready". San Jose needs their three best players to continue finding the back of the net. James Neal found Miller backdoor and the game was tied 1-1. Based on historical results, the Golden Knights have a 71.6 percent chance to win the series with a win tonight, but only 37 percent chance with a loss. "It's playoffs and we have a chance to win the Stanley Cup".

"You don't have do-overs, so I have to live with it". He came up with numerous unbelievable saves again to pace his team and keep them in the running.
