Jets' 2nd period momentum short-lived in 4-2 loss to Knights

He has played like a comic-book super hero all season and on Wednesday Marc-Andre Fleury looked like one, too. "They got a lot of momentum off that goal and then we turn around".

Fleury bounced back after a loss in Game 1 to stop 30 of 31 shots in Game 2 and lead the Golden Knights to a 3-1 victory.

"It's certainly been discussed over the course of the season", said Jay Kornegay, vice-president of race and sports operations at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. "I mean, two saves".

The Golden Knights also gave away rally towels to their fans featuring an illustration of their mascot Chance. He's been doing it all playoffs. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 81.4 percent of their opponents power plays.

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.

A team that had no players at this time past year is two wins away from reaching the Stanley Cup final.

The Vegas Golden Knights shocked the hockey world with their first ever Western Conference Final home opener.

Fleury has stopped 63 of 66 shots since then. Yes, the smiling assassin was so good he even received a secondary assist on Jonathan Marchessault's empty-net goal.

"Like anybody else in the room, I don't think anybody saw us here", Fleury said. "I was just sitting there, he was sitting there".

"I was a little late on the pass, I was focused on the shooter", Fleury told Boucher. It hit my toe and came right back into the slot, so that wasn't ideal. I knew he had a lot of time.

Because Fleury got a piece, the expansion Golden Knights are somehow six wins from the Stanley Cup.

Some of it is hard to explain, especially the bond formed between fans and team - and the empowerment of both - in the wake of the October 1 mass murder of 58 concert-goers just down Las Vegas Boulevard from where the Knights play at T-Mobile Arena. None of this happens without him.

A good chunk of those people making their way to the unlikeliest of places - a hockey rink in the Nevada desert in mid-May - were looking cool in their white Winnipeg Jets jerseys, having jumped at the opportunity to support their team in one of North America's most popular travel destinations. We know when we're not good enough. It was a big emphasis.

"Like we need an excuse to come to Vegas!" "They were obviously important at a key time for us".

Tuch continued to fill in for regular second-liner David Perron, who missed a second straight game with an undisclosed injury or illness.

Scheifele's first goal briefly deadlocked the game in the second period, but Neal restored the host team's lead 12 seconds later.

"They have a pretty good goalie", Wheeler said. It's good to get on the board and good to get a win as well. "They got to come out like their season's on the line, so we've got to be ready to push back and get some energy off the crowd". It's the first time they trail in a series in 2018. At a time when coach Gerrard Gallant and other players are trying to downplay the season-long bond borne out of being a team of cast-offs, Marchessault is still openly embracing it. Both awards could be overshadowed by a Stanley Cup.
