Winnipeg Jets' Blake Wheeler gets dumped over the boards by Vegas Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves during the first period of Game 1 of the NHL hockey playoffs Western Conference final Saturday

"We just played hard right off the bat and were able to get that two-goal lead". The Golden Knights have gone 4-1 at home in the postseason and have averaged 3.60 gpg in those games, while here at home for the year they have gone 33-13 and have averaged 3.57 gpg and have allowed 2.39 gpg in those games.

"We're gonna take the series in six [games]".

"We want to set the pace right away, but we know they're going to have a good push in front of their fans".

Perron skated Wednesday morning with the Vegas Golden Knights and looked well enough to play Game 3 of the conference final against the Winnipeg Jets, although the winger's inclusion in Wednesday night's lineup was to be a game-time decision.

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

Prior and Fleury have been cryptic about whatever adjustments they've made to Fleury's game. "We've got ourselves a series".

The Jets did not win the game but given the way they played at even strength they will win more than they lose and Jets fans should take solace in that as the series moves to Vegas.

The Golden Knights are 4-1 on home ice during the playoffs after going 29-10-2 during the regular season. Vegas got back to the fore-checking that they had used in the first two series this year and the Jets just didn't have an answer for it.

"Everybody is going to bed early". "At this time of the year, it's all business".

Grabbing the win in game two was Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped 30 of the 31 shots that he faced to improve to 9-3 with a 1.68 GAA and a.945 save percentage in the playoffs this year and 71-54 with a 2.55 GAA a.912 save percentage in the playoffs in his career. Everybody is buying into that.

"We were all in the same situation coming to Vegas", Karlsson said. It's all about rest and recovery.

Said Prior: "When you have somebody who's as gifted as Marc is, it's trying to keep him playing to his potential all the time".

The Vegas Golden Knights selected Marchessault and he averaged almost a point a game in the regular season, and leads the team with six goals and 15 points in the playoffs.

The series between the Golden Knights and Winnipeg Jets is the most-watched Western Conference Final not involving Chicago in NBC Sports Group history, the network announced Tuesday. In the end, they settled it the way you might expect from competitive professional.

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

The Jets and Golden Knights were tied 1-1 heading into Wednesday's Game 3, while the Caps were up 2-1 on the Lightning. A minute-and-a-half after Kyle Connor trimmed the Golden Knights' lead to one, Marchessault broke in on a 2-on-1 with Reilly Smith and made no mistake, burying a backhand over the outstretched glove of Connor Hellebuyck.

The Jets are 4-2 on the road during these National Hockey League playoffs, winning once in Minnesota in the opening round against the Wild.

"Yeah, I'm satisfied with my game", he said. Because whatever they said on Monday didn't bring Fleury down. "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. "And really what you're doing is adjusting back to form". We play a little simpler. Scoring in the game two win was Tomas Tatar, which was his first of the playoffs and Jonathan Marchessault, who scored twice and now has six in the playoffs.

"They'll be better tonight", Gallant said of the line.
