NHL Play Offs: Golden Knights along with Lightning Advance

After destroying the Anaheim Ducks in four games, they got a nice long rest ahead of their second-round matchup against the Vegas Golden Knights. "It was a strong game by everyone". While Fleury gave up more goals in this series than he did in the four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Kings, he was still incredible.

"They will get better as soon as we get better in front of him", said head coach Peter Laviolette on Monday, when asked about Rinne's numbers this postseason. But with three seconds left in the first period, the Golden Knights netted the game's first goal. In this one, his seventh, he's let 16 Vegas shots get behind him.

"I had a great view, I was right behind it, it was great, I was so happy to see it going in", Fleury said. "We've been on both sides of it, so you know, we're just going to regroup and get ready for the next one". In Game 1 they gave up two goals in an eight-minute stretch in the second period that proved to be the difference in a game the Predators absolutely dominated on the shot chart. Aaron Dell has given up two goals on 28 shots faced and Martin Jones has allowed 20 goals on 272 shots. Aaron Dell came on and stopped all six shots he faced.

Sharks defenseman Justin Braun poked the puck off Smith's stick after he carried it into the San Jose zone. But it did not come without a little help from the goal posts which prevented the Sharks from scoring on multiple occasions. "That's something that you need to know in the locker room with what you have, and I believe we have it with this group".

Do you have words to express the season the Vegas Golden Knights are having? Parker is at least the seventh pro hockey player diagnosed with the disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which led to a $1 billion settlement between the National Football League and former players.

The Lightning's latest victory has them one away from the team's third trip to the Eastern Conference final in four years, a step they can take by beating the Boston on Sunday (3 p.m. ET, NBC) at home in Game 5 of their best-of-seven semifinal.

Instead, it was the Golden Knights who controlled play for the entire period. David Perron won a faceoff and Schmidt took a shot that appeared to deflect off the post and out.

Even if they do not get any further, the fact that they were able to win the division and make it this far as a first-year expansion team is remarkable. When that score is within two or three, you're feelin' it.
