Colorado Avalanche Fan Guide to the 2018 Playoffs' Third Round

Golden Knights unfazed about having to start next playoff series on road Success in Vegas frustrating GMs

The Golden Knights will have their hands full in the WCF against the surging Jets, who are fresh off a Game 7 victory in Nashville. But here we are, with the two most intriguing and exciting teams in the National Hockey League playing for a chance to be in the Stanley Cup final. Boy were we all so very wrong about this team.

The Western Conference Finals begin this evening and the Pacific Division will square off with the Central Division as the Vegas Golden Knights rumble with the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Bell Centre in game one of their best-of-seven series. In a league that's filled with overcoaching and conservatism, he's stripped things down and allowed his team to play a read-and-react style reminiscent of how you used to play in the backyard with your friends growing up. "Obviously, you want to protect your home ice, so we'd like to get off to a good start in the series".

Sophomore sniper Patrik Laine was glad he wasn't on his way to Finland.

"I'm speechless, I'm just speechless", he said. They just continue to amaze and now here they are one step away from making it to the Stanley Cup Finals. Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals slayed the dragon, the Jets stunned Nashville on home ice in a thrilling game 7, the Lightning dispatched the Bruins in 5 despite Brad Marchand's licks, and Fleury and the Knights shut out the Sharks on home ice to win in six. Scheifele leads all players still in the playoffs in both goals and points and with Paul Stastny proving every bit worth what the Jets gave up for him at the trade deadline, they have a very unsafe 1-2 punch.

"There's not a lot of things that you can do if a game's not going your way if you can't use your timeout", Laviolette said.

Bobby Hull, Anders Hedberg, Ulf Nilsson - the Hot Line - and 12 other members of the 1977-78 WHA Jets are in town for a reunion and they're cheering like insane for the new incarnation of the team.

Then those three go out and combine for 30 points in a best-of-seven against the supposed best team in the league.


"Specifically, outstanding transition and speed", Jets coach Paul Maurice said of the Golden Knights.

The Golden Knights, who surpassed its season-high 13 penalties in minutes with 22 PIM, found themselves in the box more than, 11-6. The Lightning will win this series over the Capitals but it will take them seven games to do it. All the tickets for Saturday were snapped up. His shutout in Game 1 was his third of the postseason, but the Sharks peppered him throughout Game 2, outshooting the Golden Knights, 47-29. The Golden Knights did not make Prior available for an interview for this article.

Wheeler isn't buying that label. "I think they're probably going to get to the cup final, if they don't take it all". Without Fleury standing on his head, it's likely the final words of this Cinderella story would have already been written. The problem for the Jets here is that they didn't play well at home in their series against the Preds and they will be very exhausted for this one, while the Golden Knights haven't played since Sunday. I think we've been doing that, for the first round and the first game of.

Mark Scheifele also scored twice, including one into an empty net, while Tyler Myers had the other goal for Winnipeg.

"1 - Vegas" roster, comprised of mostly no-name players selected in last summer's expansion draft, had a chip on its collective shoulder all year. Kyle Connor and Blake Wheeler each had two assists.

"Game 7 is a different animal", he said. "I didn't get a whole lot of minutes at the beginning, but even if I get eight minutes, I still go out there and do my best and try to make those eight minutes count".
