Reilly Smith continues setting up goals for Golden Knights

The series victor will face either Washington or Tampa Bay in the Stanley Cup Final. "We love playing at home in front of our crowd".

I'm telling you, the National Basketball Association will be there in no time. Game 3 in the best-of-seven series will be played Wednesday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

At the 17:22 mark the Golden Knights were ahead 2-0, but they knew the Jets wouldn't abort their mission.

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.

The best-of-7 series is tied 1-1 after the Golden Knights defeated the Jets 3-1 at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg on Monday, rebounding from a 4-2 loss in Game 1 there on Saturday.

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

"We're definitely going to have a fun atmosphere", Marchessault said. For Winnipeg, Connor Hellebuyck suffered the loss as he surrendered three goals on 28 shots. "It doesn't matter what city we play in, we're going to take care of ourselves".

Golden Knights fans Eric and Jen Eierdam cheer at a watch party at Red Rock Casino during Vegas' game two NHL Western Conference Finals road matchup with the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, May 14, 2018, in Las Vegas.

The Jets pulled their goaltender to add another skater over the last couple minutes of the game, but Fleury didn't let the puck get past him again.

"They're really good. They got a lot of skill, they're hard on pucks".

Golden Knights top Jets 4-2, take 2-1 series lead
Statistically Speaking: It's the Fleury and Marchessault show

"Obviously", said Scheifele. "It's playoffs". At this time of the year, it's all business. You gotta put your nose to the grindstone.

But that still can't compete with a Canadian team still in contention for a Stanley Cup. It's all about rest and recovery. T-Mobile Arena has been packed and loud, and the building shouldn't be underestimated as a factor in the Golden Knights' 3-1 home postseason record with the only loss coming in the controversial Game 2 defeat to the Sharks. Not only will the Jets be looking to keep their longest losing streak of the spring set at one, they'll also be trying to avoid falling behind in a series for the first time.

Much like in the second round, when the Predators' first line of Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson heated up against the Jets, the Golden Knights' top trio of Jonathan Marchessault (two goals), Reilly Smith (two assists) and William Karlsson (one assist) played a pivotal role in Game 2.

Copp picked scissors. Hellebuyck chose paper.

The Jets smothered the Golden Knights' defensemen, and turned the approach into 10 takeaways and a number of scoring chances. If you're putting pressure on them, everybody's going to make mistakes in games.

Golden Knights center Jonathan Marchessault has been a revelation for the expansion squad this season, scoring 27 goals and dishing out 48 assists in 77 regular season games.

He was one of the biggest surprises in the National Hockey League this season, but the 27-year-old's production wasn't unexpected after he posted a career-high 60 points during the regular season while playing on the left side of Vegas' top line with William Karlsson and Marchessault.

"If you're going to talk out there in the media that you have to be better, I think you need to lead by example", he said.

"He's day-to-day", Gallant said before his team's optional skate on Tuesday afternoon.
