Vegas Golden Knights vs

Share

The Vegas Golden Knights took home a 4-3 victory in overtime on Monday night in San Jose, and they did so thanks to an absolutely nasty goal from William "Wild Bill" Karlsson.

Fleury made 39 saves through 60 minutes of regulation time and the first 20 minutes of sudden-death play.

San Jose had an 11-1 edge in shots on goal in the period at that point as the Sharks were controlling the play.

Brett Burns scored the first Sharks' goal two minutes into the second period, which snapped Fleury's marathon scoreless streak that included back-to-back shutouts. "We were tighter, our team game was better, we were better in every situation, and I knew we would be".

The Sharks rallied to tie the game and force a second straight overtime with two goals in the third period.

"If you look at years past I think it's nice for us to be an underdog", San Jose defenseman Brenden Dillon told nhl.com.

The Golden Knights scored three goals in a span of five minutes to take a 3-1 lead over the Sharks in San Jose. Las Vegas had appeared to have won the game in the first OT, but after a lengthy review its goal was disallowed due to goalie interference.

San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane was suspended for Game 2 because of the cross-check.

It's IN for top recruit IN Hoosier State, Romeo Langford
The Hoosiers still won't be a favorite in the Big Ten, but with Langford, you can bet people will be watching. In all, Langford officially visited all three schools before giving the nod to the Hoosiers on Monday night.

Defensemen (6): Deryk Engelland, Brayden McNabb, Jon Merrill, Colin Miller, Nate Schmidt and Shea Theodore.

For Karlsson, it continues an absolutely magical season in Vegas. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 43 of 47 shots.

Game 3 is Monday night at San Jose.

"It's easy", Couture said. "It's a hard rink to play in and it's loud so we have to be ready".

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. "They get exhausted and you wear them down". Both teams put up a defensive fight worthy of the Stanley Cup throughout the third period, keeping each other back through penalties and power plays, but it was the Knights who pulled out the overtime goal to give them the win. During the regular season, he was 30-28 with a 2.55 GAA and a.915 save percentage overall, including 19-12 with a 2.39 GAA and a.915 save percentage here at home, plus he was 1-2 with a 3.32 GAA and a.899 against the Golden Knights.

Calling Game 4 of the Sharks' Western Conference semifinals series with the Vegas Golden Knights a "must win" feels wrong.

"You just move on", Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. "I think we had one penalty and they had seven, so I wasn't too happy". They sound great until the game starts. "I'm sure he's had stretches like this, but yeah he's playing well right now".

In a season full of firsts, the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday again experienced something new. He did allow one suspect goal, to Lightning forward Tyler Johnson at 10:14 of the second period, but Rask hardly was the problem.
