Winnipeg Jets vs. Vegas Golden Knights, 5-16-2018 - Prediction & Preview

The Golden Knights have just about everyone in Las Vegas cheering them on...and it's not just people!

They couldn't seem to finish plays or catch any breaks, fanning on one-timers or running out of space to shoot on the rare occasion they did have a clear lane to Golden Knights' goalie Marc-André Fleury. They felt they played better in the second and third periods but were chasing the game. They moved on to eliminate San Jose in six games.

Golden Knights fan Karlotta Sanchez, middle, cheers at a watch party at Red Rock Casino after Golden Knights right wing Alex Tuch scored a first period goal during Vegas' game two NHL Western Conference Finals road matchup with the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, May 14, 2018, in Las Vegas.

"We know their crowd's going to be excited", Stastny said. "I didn't think that they had us at any point in the game but they were getting the bounces", said fan Jean-Guy Roy. That never happens. They've got a great team and they've had a great year, so no one is going to bow down or win easily.

While the Jets won't put three straight goals past Fleury Wednesday, they will send a message to Vegas that they aren't intimidated by the environment inside T-Mobile Arena by scoring first. "If his stick gets that puck we're all praising him, right?"

Smith has also found way to have his CF% per over 50 percent in all but three games and of the Golden Knights forwards that have played at least 10 games, Smith ranks fourth in CF% (54.78) behind Karlsson, Marchessault and Ryan Carpenter. "It's playoffs. You've got to put your nose to the grindstone".

Winnipeg appears to play more freely with a cushion, and amps up it pressure after early goals. At this time of the year, it's all business. It's all about rest and recovery.

"Anybody's top line around the league, certainly anybody's who's left is going to be a real power". You're not just good at home, you're good no matter where you go and it doesn't matter where you go.




"I decided to go make the bets because I believed in these two teams", the 49-year-old former Winnipegger said Tuesday at her residence near Red Rock Canyon, illuminated by the late-evening desert sun.

Tomas Tatar scored 6 minutes, 37 seconds into the game for the Golden Knights, and Marc-Andre Fleury finished with 30 saves.

"It's a long series. For our team we just have to win that battle", said Scheifele.

A day after a tough 4-2 loss on home ice, the Jets were keeping it light as they arrived on the Las Vegas strip. Vegas did get one bench minor for too many men.

That's where Laine, who is tied with right-winger Kyle Connor and defenseman Jacob Trouba for most shots by a Jets player in the series, slides in.

"I was always the underdog because of my size", he said.

"If you're going to talk out there in the media that you have to be better, I think you need to lead by example", he said. "If you give them a little light or a little day, they're going to take advantage of it". Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant wasn't sure whether Perron would be ready to go on Wednesday night.

Jets captain Blake Wheeler said the team, which was practising in Vegas late Tuesday afternoon, needs to improve its response.
