Perhaps the biggest difference between game 1 and game 2 for the Golden Knights was how they dealt with the Jets' defense.

The road to the Stanley Cup Final is well underway with both conference final series through two games. The Jets feel confident that their road record of 4-2 can give them the advantage.

"We're definitely going to have a fun atmosphere", Marchessault said. "If his stick gets that puck we're all praising him, right?"

Jonathan Marchessault on Monday scored twice in the Vegas Golden Knights' message to the Winnipeg Jets, bouncing back with a 3-1 series-evening win in Game 2 of the Western Conference Final. Because whatever they said on Monday didn't bring Fleury down.

With the Golden Knights in a comfortable lead (well, maybe not that comfortable), they were content with just keeping the high-flying, offensive machine known as the Winnipeg Jets off the scoreboard. and they did just that. They battled hard and played a hard game, so that's what we expected from them.

The party crowd hit 21,000 during Game 6 of the Round 2 series against Nashville after growing every home game. They outscored Nashville 11-3 in their final two games at Bridgestone Arena where the Preds were 28-9-4 during the regular season.

During the regular season, he was 29-17 with a 2.24 ERA and a.927 save percentage overall, including 16-10 with a 2.36 GAA and a.922 save percentage here at home.

Local lore suggests that several teams were struck by the Vegas flu during the inaugural season, but the Jets stressed they were not about to fall victim to the night life, given what's at stake.

Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup champion in Pittsburgh, was not protected by the Penguins in last year's expansion draft. "He's been great for us all year". Everybody is buying into that. "Once we turn pucks over, we're going the other way quick".

There's no concern whatsoever about curfew or anything of that nature.

"We'll be ready to bounce back", veteran Jets centre Paul Stastny said after the loss.

Stop us if you've heard this before.

Although Laine will get loose and score in the first period, the Golden Knights should still silence Scheifele and Wheeler for the majority of the contest.

"It was just a loose puck and it clicked off the inside of the post". It all evens out in the end and with seven games, the best team is usually going to win.

The Capitals dominated Game 1, getting a pair of first-period goals from Michael Kempny and Alex Ovechkin to open up a 2-0 lead.

The Jets are 4-1 in their last five road games. "If you're going to talk out there in the media (and say) that you need to be better, you have to lead by example", Marchessault said.

"I think you feed off the crowd for sure", Vegas defenseman Deryk Engelland said. "But it's a long series and you can't be taking losses to the next day".

"You win one and all of a sudden they get one and we lose one".

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.

Specific numbers weren't immediately available Tuesday, but the National Hockey League said the team's overall North American sales have been very strong.
