Karlsson's OT victor gives Knights 2-1 series edge

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare was not on the ice for practice Friday morning after taking a cross-check to the head during the third period of Game 1 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo kicks off Sharks-Knights playoff game
| 02 May, 2018, 02:06

On Monday night, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback opened the door for the San Jose Sharks as they prepared to take on the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

For as good as that finish is, it's also worth pointing out that San Jose defenseman Paul Martin made an abysmal read on that sequence and wandered way too far out of position, which allowed Karlsson the time and space he needed to cook up the victor.

The Golden Knights took a 3-1 lead in the second period behind three goals on one-timer shots by Colin Miller, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith in a span of less than five minutes.

Still, even though Fleury made 17 saves in the first period, helping the Golden Knights to keep the game scoreless, the Sharks say they're not discouraged.

Hertl tied it with 1:57 to go in regulation, firing in a rebound from the slot during a wild scrum around the net. The team that blew the lead has come out on top in three of those games, with Nashville doing it to Winnipeg in Game 2 of their second-round series on Sunday night and Columbus doing it to Washington in Game 2 of their first-round series. The question was about his third period goal but took a turn to focus on Fleury. Scoring a late goal to send an National Hockey League playoff game into overtime would seem to generate momentum that would carry over to the extra session.

Now that the San Jose Sharks have home-ice advantage after a dramatic win, the question is how will Vegas bounce back from its first taste of postseason adversity?

He's been the best player in this series, and a major reason why Vegas is halfway to advancing to the Conference Finals in its inaugural season. But they kept their cool, drew two penalties, scored two power-play goals and gained momentum. The two meetings in San Jose were split this season and the Sharks won the more recent contest 2-1 in overtime on March 22.

Couture felt Fleury pushed off on his post well.


Vegas entered the third period with a 3-1 lead but the Sharks rallied to tie the game 3-3 and force sudden death overtime. During the regular season, he was 30-28 with a 2.55 GAA and a.915 save percentage overall, including 19-12 with a 2.39 GAA and a.915 save percentage here at home, plus he was 1-2 with a 3.32 GAA and a.899 against the Golden Knights.

They had to pull Martin Jones to get the tying goal when Hertl's dramatic tally at the 18:03 mark stunned the confident Golden Knights.

The Sharks had 16 shots in the first period and it wasn't until their 27th when they finally solved Fleury.

Brent Burns, a defenseman for the Sharks with a beard of his own, tweeted at the quarterback.

"You just move on", Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said.

Evander Kane had a flawless shot in the third period, beating a partially screened Fleury with a wrist shot that got past his left shoulder and just underneath the crossbar.
