Golden Knights-Vegas Born,133

Santangelo was among hundreds who gathered this week in downtown Las Vegas to watch the Knights play the San Jose Sharks in a second-round playoffs series. Get the app and get the game.

After looking lethargic in a 4-0 loss in Game 4 on the Sharks' home ice, the Golden Knights came out refreshed and looking more like the team that won Game 1 by a 7-0 final.

We aren't in 1994 anymore, Dorothy, but don't tell that to Tomas Hertl.

The Golden Knights are now in an intense Round 2 matchup against the San Jose Sharks, and inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas there happens to be a shark tank. "As a team, individually, that's something that's very hard to take". The Golden Knights are a +125 underdog, while the over-under is set at 5.5 goals.

The Golden Knights took control of this game with some good fortune in the second period.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic had the puck on his stick as he was skating out of the Sharks' zone toward the blue line. I don't know what his numbers are, but he played unbelievable. He broke the scoreless tie early in the second period with a shot that beat Sharks' goalie Martin Jones. David Perron won a faceoff and Schmidt took a shot that appeared to deflect off the post and out.

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.

Replays showed that the puck did entirely break the plane of the goal line after hitting the post. His shot from in close slipped under Jones for his fourth goal of the playoffs and a 1-0 Vegas lead.

"Fleury played really well and we left him out to dry a little bit in the third, but I thought we finished strong", Tuch added. That's hockey. But Vegas deserves to be moving on. "We have to take it and start right away, and I believe we'll come back (to Las Vegas) for Game 7".
