San Jose Sharks Outplayed by Vegas in Second Round Exit

Updates with new lead.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 28 shots for his fourth shutout of the postseason as the expansion Vegas Golden Knights advanced to the Western Conference final with a 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

Goaltender Martin Jones posted a.970 save percentage in the first round of the playoffs as the San Jose Sharks swept the Anaheim Ducks in four games.

Next up for Fleury and Vegas will be the Western Conference Final against either Winnipeg or Nashville. In a series where two goaltenders were on top of their games, Fleury edged out Jones, posting two shutouts in the series.

"It was maybe a little bit of a shock, but I'm proud of our team, our organization, the way they did things here", Fleury said. "We had great chemistry right from the start". San Jose had zero time to execute clean passes, and the active sticks by Vegas thwarted any attacks.

Vegas then had a delayed celebration for the goal that made it 2-0.

Game 7 of the Nashville-Winnipeg series is Thursday, with the victor advancing to face the Golden Knights with home ice advantage. The Capitals lead the Penguins 3-2 and can book their spot in the Conference final on Monday.

"I thought it was a great series", Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. And Reaves, who skates well enough and plays well enough not to be a bad liability, will fill that bill. "We weren't scoring a whole lot of goals at that time, but we were just playing real good, solid hockey and not giving much at all." May. (Especially considering that the National Hockey League was only four teams deep at that time.) And while the 1967-68 St. Louis Blues made the Stanley Cup Final, they did so thanks to playing in a division composed exclusively of expansion teams; they were swept in four games by the Original Six Montreal Canadians in that final.

"You get this far and you lose, it's disappointing". I don't know what his numbers are, but he played unbelievable.

The T-Mobile Arena where the Golden Knights play at home as averaged over 18,000 fans per night. And Couture's line led the way with six goals and 16 points, but it had its hands full assisting San Jose defensemen Marc-Edouard Vlasic (minus-3) and Justin Braun (minus-2) trying to contain the Golden Knights' top group.

The Golden Knights then added to the lead after an icing by Brent Burns led to an offensive zone faceoff. Even the fourth line played a big role Sunday by controlling the puck and hemming San Jose in the defensive zone.

Play went on for 25 more seconds before the buzzer rang, with the situation room in Toronto calling for a video review.

"I had no idea", Schmidt said. The Penguins wanted to bring in some protection for Sidney Crosby and their other skilled players, who they figured were physically abused during last year's playoff run.
