Stanley Cup Playoffs: Golden Knights eliminate Sharks

Golden Knights fans react to a bad call during the first overtime period of Game 2 of an NHL hockey second-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks at T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturd

Out of all the remaining teams still alive in the NHL Playoffs, the Golden Knights compiled a 9-3-0 record in the regular season against them. That's hockey. But Vegas deserves to be moving on. Many of these players are in their mid-20s as they are hitting or are in their prime. I wish them the best of luck. But regardless of which team Vegas faces next round, they are sure to be an underdog just like they have been all season as they continue to defy the odds as an expansion team in their inaugural season in the National Hockey League. The Sharks were one of the last eight teams playing after absorbing an offseason departure of franchise pillar Patrick Marleau and the loss of another cornerstone - Joe Thornton - who went down with a season-ending injury in January. He took the place of Ryan Carpenter.

Here's what we learned as the Sharks got eliminated from the playoffs by dropping a 3-0 decision to the Knights in Game 6.

It was a tale of two top forward lines in this series. "They finished with more points than we did".

Gallant didn't seem concerned about opening on the road after having home-ice advantage against the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks in the first two rounds. "There was a confidence about them".

The Golden Knights know when they're playing again. San Jose led for only 70:24 of the 393:30. "We got caught on the wrong end of it tonight". We are battling. We have a chance every night. The Sharks scored a total of 14 goals in six games.

Vegas Golden Knights won the series to advance to the next round.

"Sometimes you've got to give credit to the other guy", Sharks defenseman Brent Burns said. But none of those opportunities could beat Fleury, who got some fortunate bounces to go his way.

And the similarities are unmistakable. "Most of these states did support Trump by more than just a few points". Trump would measure in the competition in any respect underscores how alarmed party officials are about Mr.


The Knights goalie and Martin Jones both entered the series with save percentages north of.970, setting the stage for what should have been a memorable goaltender's duel.

Games 1 and 5 will be televised on NBC while all other games are now scheduled for NBCSN. You would probably think I was insane. His shot from in close slipped under Jones for his fourth goal of the playoffs and a 1-0 Vegas lead. Karlsson, Marchessault, and Reilly Smith were dominant during plenty of stretches of this series.

"It doesn't matter a whole lot", he said.

A major reason why his numbers declined so significantly in the series is that the Knights generated a plethora of quality-scoring chances with their speed.

Kane and Donskoi's ailments just accentuated the absence of Joe Thornton, who went down with a right-knee injury on January 23.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic had the puck on his stick as he was skating out of the Sharks' zone toward the blue line.

"No handshake is easy when you're on the losing side", Pavelski said. "I thought two teams played similar style". We always felt like we had a chance to move on to another round. We continue to just set new expectations for yourself.
