'Flower' keeps Vegas fresh despite late Game 3 flurry from Jets

Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 81.8 percent of their opponents power plays.

So far, the team that has opened the scoring in each of the first three games of this series had held on to win the game. The series continues at T-Mobile Arena on Friday before a fifth game is played in Winnipeg on Sunday afternoon. The Jets had never reached the second round before their current run. "They're a resilient team". Jets vs Golden Knights live stream is on NBC Sports stream.

The Jets could not have gotten off to a worse start.

The game was just:35 old when a turnover in the neutral zone caused by Brayden McNabb sprung Jonathan Marchessault. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed three or less goals in five of their last seven games. Connor Hellebuyck had 26 saves for the Jets, who arrived in Las Vegas having outscored their opposition 23-15 in road games during the playoffs.

Fleury put on a show early in the second. Wheeler helped set up both of Mark Scheifele's tallies in the second and third periods. It was Scheifele's 13th goal of the playoffs. But 12 seconds later, Neal answered when Hellebuyck misplayed the puck behind his net and Erik Haula dished a flawless pass, giving the Knights a 2-1 lead. Tuch notched his fifth goal of the playoffs after Neal fed him with a nifty pass from behind the net. I'm once again backing the Golden Knights. He continued Marchessault's trend of early goals by potting another just 18 seconds into the third.

Marc Andre-Fleury was as sharp as ever in net with 33 saves, but he didn't have to do much for the first half of the game.

After stonewalling Tyler Myers' breakaway attempt with 11:50 left in the game, he stymied Scheifele's back-to-back shot with 9:30 remaining.

That's going to change quickly if Marchessault's tear leads the Golden Knights to two more wins and a Stanley Cup Finals appearance. The Golden Knights crowd chanted their goalie's name over and over. Marchessault scored an empty-netter with seconds left to seal the victory.

EA Games announces Battlefield V, to be revealed on May 23rd
We've been hearing rumors for a while now that the next Battlefield game will be revealed at E3 or EA Play next month. However, the upcoming live stream will be the determining factor if Operations will be in this year's Battlefield .

The Golden Knights have still not announced what injury kept winger David Perron out of Game 2 against the Jets on Monday, but it does appear he at least has a chance to get back on the ice Wednesday for Game 3. I just saw it on the replay on TV.

"It's like Cirque du Soleil and everything all rolled into one", said Kosh, who has a quarter-season ticket.

Carnell Johnson, a singer who gives gondola tours in canals around the Venetian resort hotel, did the anthems, pausing politely so Winnipeg followers could scream "True north" during O Canada.

The odds of the Golden Knights winning the Cup, back in October, were 200 to one. They are one of only two teams to win more than one playoff series in their inaugural season since 1918.

"It's such an wonderful experience and you want people to have a good time", she said. "They showed us that tonight". "They are a good team and that is why they are here".

Ryan said she always takes time to welcome fans from other cities, because she appreciates their love of hockey and the excitement they add to the games.

It's easy to see why Fleury was GM George McPhee's first player transaction, a handshake deal that we know now was consummated in February 2017, before Fleury helped Pittsburgh to half its 16 wins last summer when Matt Murray went down. "Now, we have a series". They battled hard and played great.
