After losses Saturday, the and Golden Knights will be happy just to reclaim home-ice advantage.

Coach Gerard Gallant said they deserve to be there.

"The telling stat for me in this series is we played four games in (Nashville) and never lost in regulation (time)".

Vegas has been below average on offense in the playoffs so far as they come in ranked 9th in scoring at 2.90 gpg, while also ranking 3rd in shots taken (33.3 spg) and 10th in power play conversions, converting on 17.5% of their chances.

"The objective of our practice was to put us in the best position to be ready to play (Monday night)", Cooper said. It hit a home run with a lot of its picks, identifying players like William Karlson and Jonathan Marchessault who were due to break out given larger roles. We had a week off.

"Just watching them in the playoffs, it's not a fluke", said Wheeler, who has 15 points in 12 games. Are the third National Hockey League team to win two rounds of the playoffs in their inaugural season, joining the 1917-18 Toronto Arenas and 1967-68 St. Louis Blues ...


Much of the same can be said for Vegas, which looked nothing like the team that opened its second-round series with a 7-0 shellacking of. There would've been no shame in losing to such a high-powered team, but Winnipeg proved themselves superior and torched them on numerous occasions to take the series in seven games with a 5-1 win on the road in Game 7. When you're in the box for a good portion of the night it's not going to go good.

2 - Karlsson, one of the Golden Knights' best players, had only 18 career goals entering this season.

Vegas is used to rolling four lines and three pairs of defensemen.

"They're the most fun". There will be systems to breakdown, player behaviour to watch, along with other individual nuances of the Vegas team.

"There are some die-hards that if they came from Winnipeg, you're not converting them at this point", Brooks said.

I don't want to pretend that I thought this would happen all along. "You've got to enjoy it". "You don't waste your time with after-the-whistle activities". Winnipeg has a population of about 750,000 people, compared to a Las Vegas' metro population of about two million.


Now they're getting ready to pit their depth, speed and two of the postseason's best goaltenders against each other when the Western Conference final gets underway in Winnipeg on Saturday night.

The Washington Capitals and Alex Ovechkin have a good underdog trend that goes hand-in-hand with the belief that something is different in their latest playoff matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Most of us went through at least a few of these stages. "Just trying to be cool and calm".

The Golden Knights may have the advantage of rested legs, but they also will catch a unsafe Jets team that could still be fueled by momentum from Thursday's win.

"We have a good bunch of guys, we've been through a lot together this year", Fleury said Sunday. He has also posted eight wins, with four shutouts, in 10 games to help propel Sin City to the conference final.

Upon hearing about the death last of week of former Islanders General Manager Bill Torrey at 83, I started to think back to the late spring of 1972, when the franchise was created. Tight checking games, overtime games, closeout games, they've faced it all and passed every test (except that one) with flying colors.
