March On! Golden Knights Slay Sharks, Continue Historic Inaugural Season

March On! Golden Knights Slay Sharks, Continue Historic Inaugural Season

"We deserve to be here", coach Gerard Gallant said. The game gets started at 7:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 6 and it is being shown live on NBC Sports Network. "It was a strong game by everyone". However, to NHL.com, Couture sung the praises of Tomas Hertl, who also assisted on Kevin Labanc's first goal Friday and scored the middle one. Down 4-0 in the third period, Couture and the Sharks woke up and almost rallied all the way back. However, Marchessault's empty-netter with 21 seconds left sealed it for Vegas.

"I believe we'll come back and force a Game 7", Hertl said. "So instead of staying patient, they peddled him off to Vegas and then arranged for the Golden Knights to take Marchessault, who was on a team-friendly deal, but would have fallen out of the Panthers" salary structure given his production.

"I'm going to go home tonight and relax", he said with a giant smile. Unfortunately, we didn't get the bounces to go our way. As was the case for most of the matchups between the two clubs this season, Vegas was the better team over the final 20 minutes, and held San Jose to just seven, five-on-five shots as its season wound down.

Valid point. None of the Sharks pictured play hockey, however, the Sharks which can be found at SAP Center Sunday night may have a different answer to that question when Game 6 goes down.

With the way Fleury has been playing and the excellent defense demonstrated in front of him, Vegas felt pretty good going into the locker room with a 2-0 in what could be the deciding game of the second round series.

The North Vancouver, B.C. native is set to enter the first season of the six-year, $34.5 million contract extension he signed with the Sharks last July in October. You would probably think I was insane. The Golden Knights are 24-12 when they serve fewer penalty minutes than their opponent and 44-20 in games where they serve fewer than 10 total penalty minutes.

But what we've also learned from the Golden Knights' success is that the salary cap has failed the small markets spectacularly. David Perron won a faceoff and Schmidt took a shot that appeared to deflect off the post and out. The deflection carried out to Reilly Smith who was blocked by Tierney this time, keeping the score 1-0. Play continued but was halted seconds later, when a quick video review determined the puck had crossed the goal line.

Tuch pushed the lead to 4-0 with an exquisite tip over Jones' glove at 8:36 of the third, while ending the night for Jones.

In game six against the Sharks, Fleury made 28 saves for the shutout.

San Jose had to shuffle their top line a bit due to Evander Kane's suspension and Joonas Donskoi's lower-body injury, but even when they were in the lineup they weren't very effective.

The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings. Even if they do not get any further, the fact that they were able to win the division and make it this far as a first-year expansion team is remarkable.
