Vegas Golden Knights to play Saturday, May 12

The team is now 8-2 in the playoffs as they swept the LA Kings in round one and won in six games against the San Jose Sharks in round two. "I just tried to follow the pass and get out there a bit and I had a little time to react on it", Fleury said. "We had great chemistry right from the start".

Fleury, who was part of three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Pittsburgh, is a main reason for the success.

It was an impressive bounce back from their first loss of the playoffs in double overtime at home in Game 2 and wouldn't have been possible without Marc-Andre Fleury, who made 39 saves to hold off an early push by the Sharks and then robbed Logan Couture with a glove save in overtime.

Former Shark, Ryan Carpenter, came back to bite his former club, assisting on the empty-net goal to give Vegas a 3-0 lead.

The start of Game 1 of the Western Conference Final between the Golden Knights and the victor of Thursday's Game 7 against the Nashville Predators and the Winnipeg Jets will begin Saturday at 4 p.m. pst. However, the stat of the postseason may have happened last night in the series-clinching Game 6. "We have showed we can play on the road at both places". In addition to making the conference finals, Vegas have become the first expansion team to sweep a playoff series and won more games for an expansion side than any other team ever.

Vegas is the third team in National Hockey League history to win two playoff series in its inaugural season, joining the Toronto Arenas (1918) and the St. Louis Blues (1968). I don't know what his numbers are, but he played unbelievable. "As a team, individually, that's something that's very hard to take".

Game 3 and Game 4 will be hosted by the Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena. But that quickly turned as James Neal held the puck below the goal line and fed Miller with a pass that Marc-Edouard Vlasic almost broke up for a tap-in that tied the game. Meanwhile, the Knights top line of William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith ran wild, collecting 25 points off 61 shots. With 6:14 remaining, the Sharks had a chance to cut the Golden Knights lead to 2-1 but Brent Burns shot hit off the goalpost again and bounced out. Nate Schmidt took control of the puck after a face-off. He finished the postseason with a.928 save percentage and a 2.26 goals-against average.

He made his impact felt, too, leading the Golden Knights with eight hits in 10 minutes and 11 seconds of ice time.

They also had several other chances that either Fleury turned aside with acrobatic saves, trickled just wide or they were unable to get a clean shot, like a rebound Couture whiffed on from the slot in the first period with an open net.

"These guys had all kind of (injuries)", head coach Pete DeBoer said. "I think we had a couple of those that didn't go in".
