San Jose Sharks get chomped by Las Vegas Golden Knights in overtime

Пятница, 04 Мая, 2018

They didn't get a fair chance to redeem themselves in 1994 as the playoffs were canceled due to the strike, but they did bounce back in Year Three, finishing 77-67 and earning a spot in the 1995 NLDS, which they lost to the Atlanta Braves.

San Jose outshot its newest rival 16-8 in the second, but failed to score a five-on-five goal for the 10th consecutive period.

"We have to be ready to start the game", James Neal said.

The Sharks need to pair the desperation they felt in the third period of Game 3 with the push they made in the first period of the game. From just to the right of the crease, Karlsson redirected Marchessault's shot behind his back, and the puck bounced off Jones to Smith on the back side. San Jose then mounted their comeback and tied the game with just 1:57 left in regulation to send the game to OT.

"It's easy, we'll go to practice tomorrow and the game the next day."
"You've got to defend hard when they have it and make your plays and have confidence to make plays when you do have it".

The Golden Knights felt pretty good going into the locker room with a two-goal lead on the road. Smith tapped in the puck for his first goal of the playoffs.

Wild Bill, as the fans call him, has really been the star of this Vegas team offensively all season and when looking at a preview of this series, one of those keys to them winning would be Karlsson showing up and being up to the task in Round 2. "It's playoffs and we have a chance to win the Stanley Cup.

As opposed to Game 1, I think we're getting closer and closer to breaking through".

This is a moment of truth for this team - we're about to find out what these Sharks are made of. Jones finished with 29 saves. It's not clear if he will return for Wednesday's National Hockey League matchup. Vegas has been similar, with pundits even now pointing out that they still had many flaws in the first round win over the Los Angeles Kings. Against Anaheim in the first round, Donskoi, used mainly as a top line winger, has a goal and two assists.

Charlie McAvoy tied it up for the Bruins near the end of the first period, but Tyler Johnson latched on to another Point assist to leave the hosts 2-1 up at the Amalie Arena.

The total has gone over in 14 of San Jose's last 20 games.

The Vegas Golden Knights who have fought back in many games all season long, did it again as they regained the home ice advantage they relinquished to theSan Jose Sharks in Game 2.

The Sharks scored two of their four Game 2 goals on seven power-play opportunities, including the game-winner just over five minutes into the second extra session.

Joe Pavelski needs to be better - his presence wasn't felt in Game 3. Monday, he was going to be asked to play a few more shifts, at least.

Goodrow played in every game but one from January 5 to March 27 when he was injured in a game against St. Louis. That was it for them and now are in a 2-1 hole in the series.
