Knights visit Jets to begin West finals

Knights visit Jets to begin West finals

The rest they gained between both rounds should serve them very well as the battle of playoff attrition really begins. It's tough, but the Jets just have the slight edge when it comes to going toe to toe with Vegas.

Next up for Fleury and Vegas will be the Western Conference Final against either Winnipeg or Nashville.

I am not saying I want future expansion teams to be cup contenders out of the gate either, heck as a Sabre fan myself the last thing I want to see is Vegas in year one win when we are approaching 50 years with a no titles ourselves. It was impressive watching the Knights beat the Sharks with their relentless work ethic in the series-clinching win.

People thought business tycoon Bill Foley was either joking or looking through rose-colored glasses when he told reporters in September that they would be National Hockey League champions by their sixth season.

Wheeler, of the USA, said he is looking forward to continuing their playoff run in Winnipeg which has some of the most loyal and loudest fans in the league.

"There's a different kind of speed and different kind of transition in this series and it doesn't lend itself to the play as often along the walls", Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice said. "It's the final game for one team". It hit a home run with a lot of its picks, identifying players like William Karlson and Jonathan Marchessault who were due to break out given larger roles. Hellebuyck won his first three starts and never relinquished his hold on the job.

Anticipation, excitement and a fair amount of nerves are to be expected ahead of a Game 7.

Yet he was front and centre as the Jets faced the media Friday afternoon. "They're a great mix of responsibility, play hard underneath the puck and they can make some pretty dynamic plays". Scoring in the win over the Preds was Tyler Myers, which was his 3rd of the postseason, Paul Stastny, who scored twice and now has six in the playoffs and Mark Scheifele, who also scored twice and now has 11 in the playoffs, which leads the league.

"It is a quick turnaround", Hellebuyck said Thursday night. "It's not about personal accomplishments in the playoffs".

The Jets have scored exactly the same number of goals (43) as the high-flying Washington Capitals in exactly the same number of games (12) and they managed to make one of the deepest and most highly regarded defense corps look ordinary in Round 2.

"It's only round 2".

Not even in existence a year ago, the inaugural Golden Knights are already the most successful first-year franchise in the history of professional sports. "It's exciting for the players to be able to give back to the fans", said general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff.

The Jets have built themselves through the draft and savvy trades over the past few years.

The 16 goals the three have combined to score ranks 38th in the league, which is impressive considering Stastny wasn't added until the trading deadline.

"They're going to have their jabs at us for wearing our Jets gear and we'll have our jabs right back at them for wearing their Knights gear", Stevenson said. But how much do you know about the city where Games 1 and 2 will be played? When they meet starting Saturday night in Winnipeg in the Western Conference final, it will be a matchup between a team that missed the playoffs previous year and one that didn't even play. The Jets have the size advantage over the Golden Knights and they will be significantly faster than either the Los Angeles Kings or Predators were.

However, let's get one thing straight. Everybody is going to be focused. I talked about it a bit in this article, but some of the worst teams ever were first year expansion teams.
