Marchessault nets twice as Knights pull even

Marchessault nets twice as Knights pull even

The series victor will face either Washington or Tampa Bay in the Stanley Cup Final.

It was no grand proclamation and he certainly stopped short of a guarantee, but Golden Knights winger Jonathan Marchessault made clear ahead of Game 2 of the Western Conference final that Vegas not only could, but would, be better. It's no different for us (Wednesday). "Every time we need a big game out of our group, we show up".

"We were on them", Golden Knights forward Erik Haula said.

The Jets were unable to rally after that, and the Golden Knights got the road win they were looking for before returning home for Game 3 Wednesday night.

Even if the participants in the Western Conference final are a surprise - one team that has never gotten this far and another in its first season - the way the series has started shouldn't be. Here's a look at our four-team power rankings before we get deeper into each series. They outscored Nashville 11-3 in their final two games at Bridgestone Arena where the Preds were 28-9-4 during the regular season. If they can keep it up, they'll cruise to the Stanley Cup Final.

"It's a long series and you can't be taking losses to the next day". Because whatever they said on Monday didn't bring Fleury down.

"We just played hard right off the bat and were able to get that two-goal lead".

Copp picked scissors. Hellebuyck chose paper.

"We're definitely going to have a fun atmosphere", Marchessault said.

The Knights and Jets are averaging a Total Audience Delivery of 1.841 million viewers through two games, making it the most-watched Western Conference Final since 2015 when Chicago downed Anaheim. But considering how the Jets have played on the road lately, that might not be a good thing.

"Obviously", said Scheifele. "It's playoffs". It's all about rest and recovery.

Carrick: As coach, I'll give Mourinho my opinion
Former Manchester United star Neville believes the FA Cup final is a huge game for both Chelsea FC and Manchester United . I was thinking: 'Go and score, five, six, seven'.

Any chance of shutting down pace and momentum of the Jets will likely win the game for the Knights in Game 3. "This is a nice city". At this time of the year, it's all business. Among the four teams remaining, only the Lightning has ever won the Stanley Cup. Everybody is buying into that.

A hiccup in Game 1 appears to have been just that, based on how well they played in Winnipeg the next time out. "I think as a guy that plays with two great players, I wanted to step up and try to do my job the best".

Vegas played without third leading scorer David Perron, who had 16 goals and 50 assists in the regular season and has seven assists in the playoffs, on Monday night. He won't have the benefit of getting last change on the road. We got control of it but couldn't get away clean. They do everything. They play a solid 200-foot game. "They didn't make it easy".

The Lightning were the first team to punch their tickets to the conference final, but back-to-back disasters with home-ice advantage against the Caps has them returning to Washington in a risky hole. They always seem to find that seam pass.

He was then asked if keeping it light, like they did Tuesday, has been a big part of their ability to flush losses, like the one they suffered Monday. Winnipeg really has little-to-no problems finishing or creating chances in the attacking zone, but how they get there, which was especially shown in Game 2, looks to be an issue.

The Nashville clash had also been knotted 1-1 and 2-2. The only defeat came in double overtime.

But. the Marchessault show was not over just yet. "It's just a matter of how you react to it".

"I think playing with the lead", Marchessault said. "This is all or nothing, all on the line and it's what we grew up dreaming about".

Despite the loss, it was the kind of game he enjoys.

NBC Sports' coverage of the National Hockey League playoffs has the highest ratings in six years, including a combined audience delivery of 1.776 million viewers through four games. "One more Vegas, they'll win the second home game but after that it's all us". "We're in a battle and that's what we want", said Copp.
