Behind the Armor: The Golden Knight tells his Knight's tale

How Vegas led by Jonathan Marchessault stepped up its play in Game 2

How Vegas led by Jonathan Marchessault stepped up its play in Game 2

After splitting the first two games, the Jets realize they will need to crank up their game a bit in order to avoid falling behind in a series for the first time in three rounds. We play a little simpler. The team has been forced to defend opponent power plays 12.4 minutes per game over their last five home outings.

Shunock recalls one night in particular walking on stage and hearing someone in the crowd shout "We're from Sault!"

Even excluding Manitoba, the Jets remained the favourite button on television remotes in Western Canada with 22 per cent more viewers in Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C., watching Winnipeg versus Nashville than the Knights-Sharks series, according to Sportsnet.

"After I heard I was unprotected, I moved on and hoped that Vegas would pick me and they did".

Jonathan Marchessault scored twice and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 30 shots to lift the Vegas Golden Knights on th road in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals and tie the series 1-1. "So what happens is, we win the first game so we've got all the answers, they win the second game so they've got all the answers", said Maurice. I think I was one of the top four players at the forward position there, but they did the best decision for their organization. "We've got ourselves a series". With the series shifting to Las Vegas tonight, can the Golden Knights keep it rolling with another win?

The Golden Knights are 4-1 on home ice during the playoffs after going 29-10-2 during the regular season. The Jets are 8-1; the Golden Knights are 7-1.

"Everybody is going to bed early". "We showed the hockey world we earned the right to be here". "At this time of the year, it's all business".

The money was meant to keep her from discussing an alleged extramarital affair with Trump prior to the 2016 election. The disclosure forms that he's required to submit to the ethics office provide a more limited view of his finances.

But that still can't compete with a Canadian team still in contention for a Stanley Cup. Everybody is buying into that.

There's no concern whatsoever about curfew or anything of that nature. "It's playoffs. You've got to put your nose to the grindstone".

The Jets have scored a total of six goals in those games and must now try and get back on track at the T-Mobile Arena where the Golden Knights have been very tough so far. If head coach Paul Maurice decides to rest him, however, Winnipeg might turn to Steve Mason (5-9-1 record, .907 save percentage, 3.15 goals against average).

"It was just a loose puck and it clicked off the inside of the post".

"Yeah, I'm satisfied with my game", he said. "They hit a couple posts when they were up 2-0 too so that could change it that way". It's usually what happens for the home team. We got that 2-0 lead and it was a different game for us.

The Jets' offensive attack attempted 32.4 shots per game in the regular season, leading to 3.4 goals per outing (ranked second overall in the NHL). Finally, when Scheifele was finished, they had an emphatic game of rock, paper, scissors to see who went next. He was smiling when he said that - a recurring theme Tuesday.

"It's no guarantee here tonight, but I think we're going to play our game and it'll give us an opportunity", said Wheeler. The Jets had a day off, but a long flight in. "And really what you're doing is adjusting back to form". We know our game, we play our game, we just gotta play our game.
