Golden Knights on the Verge of History…Again

Golden Knights on the Verge of History…Again

If the Los Angeles Kings can do these three components, they will have a great chance to win game four.

One year ago, the Vegas Golden Knights had no players on their roster, and Gerard Gallant was four days into his new job as the first head coach of the expansion team.On Tuesday, Vegas became the first franchise in National Hockey League history to sweep a postseason series in its inaugural season when it defeated the Los Angeles Kings 1-0.The Golden Knights will face the victor of the San Jose Sharks-Anaheim Ducks series in the next round.

Defensemen (6): Deryk Engelland, Brayden McNabb, Jon Merrill, Colin Miller, Nate Schmidt and Shea Theodore.

"They're a confident group, still. It's so close", Kings center Anze Kopitar said. "We can't deviate from what we need to do". When we play right away, I think we can go far, but we cannot look too far right now. "Obviously we've got to win that series, but we're not looking at it in that sort of way". We just do what a regular team would.

The high-scoring Boston Bruins, who pounded the Toronto Maple Leafs with 12 goals (including four goals and five assists from first-line winger David Pastrnak) to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series, are No. 2 this week. Vegas needed it: Kopitar added a tipped goal with 2:04 to play, but the Kings couldn't get the equalizer.

"A lot of these guys have been there before", he said.

"It's nice", Fleury said of making expansion-club history. For Vegas, it came in their inaugural season. And, again, Gallant's laid-back demeanor comes through. "I don't worry about what's happened in the past". However, he needs to be able to stand on his head at least for game four to extend the series.

Scheifele scored with 28 seconds left in the first period and tacked on an empty-netter with 11 seconds remaining, pushing the Wild to the brink of elimination.

"You have to expect their best", defenseman Deryk Engelland said.

Vegas' offensive burst broke open a third straight game of tense, defense-dominated playoff hockey between a franchise that won two Cups with that attitude and another that didn't exist a year ago. Fleury, though, has logged an 0.84 GAA. "It's going to be a battle", McNabb said.
