Winnipeg Jets vs. Las Vegas Golden Knights 5/16/18, Prediction & Odds

And if the Jets drove past Caesars Palace on their way to the game they might have noticed the statue of Caesar was holding a Knights hockey stick. While his team managed just three shots on goal during the opening period, he turned aside nine shots after surrendering an early goal.

Scheifele scored in the second and third periods in Game 3, but couldn't push his side ahead in a 4-2 loss to Vegas on Wednesday.

Vegas Golden Knights merchandise is flying off the shelves, with goalie Marc-Andre Fleury's jersey leading the way. The under is 4-0-1 in the last five Winnipeg games vs. the Pacific Division. The game got a bit chippy as the 2nd period wore on and ended with four players on the box for coincidental roughing minors.

Now with the series shifted back to Vegas and home-ice advantage established, the Golden Knights believe they can establish control versus Winnipeg and use a two-game stretch in their own barn to close in on a Stanley Cup Final berth in their expansion season.

There was no quit in the Jets, though. Once again, it was Scheifele.

Fleury finished the game with 33 saves, none more impressive than the pair during that sequence.

As if all of that was not enough, he also picked up an assist on Marchessault's empty-net goal in the closing seconds to help put the game away. But as the final horn sounded, yet another scrum broke out, setting the stage for what should be a feisty Game 4.

Where the Jets need to be concerned is with the relentlessness of the Vegas puck pressure and pursuit, and it's like amplified on home ice. The score was tied for a grand total of 45 seconds.

The rapper said that he was wrongfully detained for being a rich Black celebrity in a predominantly white neighborhood. I'm lookin' like yesterday man. 'With all we been through this is small potatoes, man'. "I'm here, present at school".


Now with home ice it seems the problem could be magnified for the Jets but it's one that can be beat.

Now, Winnipeg must find a way to rebound.

As much as 500-1 to win the Stanley Cup in this gambling city's sports books when the season began, the players that like to refer to themselves as the Golden Misfits are now incredibly the odds-on favorites to win it all.

Then after the game he showed what makes him a beloved member of whatever hockey community he is a part of when he met with the wife and children of late Humboldt Broncos coach and general manager Darcy Haugan, spending 20 minutes with them. When they did the puck carrier, usually the defense, was being pressured and making evasive moves that prevented a good pass as players were on top of each other.

So it's not a stretch that the Western Conference final between those two teams will get more Canadian eyes on it than the Eastern Conference final involving the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning.
