Marc-Andre Fleury stellar in Golden Knights' OT win

It was back-and-forth play for the remainder of the first period, but San Jose quickly re-established control of the game early in the second period after receiving back-to-back power plays. Goalie Probables: Getting the nod for the Golden Knights will be Marc-Andre Fleury and the Sharks will counter with Martin Jones. He scored twice in Game 2, giving him seven points (three goals, four assists) in a four-game points streak. It was his 1st of the playoffs. This is just the second time in the last 20 years that there have been at least 11 four-point performances in the first 52 games of the playoffs. The Sharks eventually won it in the 2nd OT.

For the second straight game the Golden Knights have blown a two-goal lead to allow San Jose to force overtime. The winning ways continued as three-time Stanley Cup victor Marc-Andre Fleury posted his third shutout during this postseason, 7-0 over the Sharks in Game 1 on Thursday.

Brent Burns planted a flawless pass on Kane's stick and he knew what to do with it, as his whistling wrister evaded Fleury up high on the glove side.

The Vegas Golden Knights were not discouraged, as they went right to work and tied the game 2:41 later on a power play of their own by Colin Miller.

The San Jose Sharks had a great opening series against the Ducks, but then they were crushed in game one of this series by a score of 7-0.




Players scramble for the puck as Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (29) attempts a save during the third period of a regular season game between the San Jose Sharks and the Vegas Golden Knights Saturday, March 31, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Logan Couture scored the winning goal that drove the Sharks over the edge.

The Sharks have a 39-30 advantage in shots on goal through 60 minutes of hockey.

Tomas Hertl, Evander Kane and Timo Meier each scored goals for San Jose. Goalie Martin Jones bounced back from an very bad Game 1 performance to make 26 saves on 29 shots to earn the victory. He was solid five-on-five, though, stopping all but two of the Golden Knights' 24 shots when both teams were at full strength.

The Sharks have been a solid offensive team in the postseason so far as they come in ranked 6th in the league in scoring at 3.33 gpg, while also ranking 3rd in shots taken (34.8 spg) and 5th in power play conversions, converting on 25.0% of their chances. After losing 4-3 in double overtime in Game 2, they went on the road facing the possibility of being behind in a series for the first time. I don't expect them to give it up that easily.

After battling back from a two-goal deficit late in the third period, San Jose had to then kill a pair of minor penalties less than six minutes into the first overtime period.
