Marchessault makes Golden Knights glad Panthers gave him up

The excitement didn't last long because It would take all of 1:28 for Vegas to regain their two-goal lead, and once again silence the crowd at Bell MTS place as Marchessault scored his 2nd of the game, finishing off a great pass from Reilly Smith, who outwaited a sliding Josh Morrissey before finding Marchessault in front of Hellebuyck and lifting a backhand over the blocker to seal the deal for the Golden Knights. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 81.4 percent of their opponents power plays. "And they knew that, and they had to respond tonight, and they did in a big way". The Jets scored three goals in the opening 7:35 of Game 1 and cruised to a 4-2 victory. "We rebounded after that and got that 2-0 lead and it was a different game". Connor rushed up the left side and snapped a shot underneath the arm of Fleury to get the crowd back into it.

That's what Jonathan Marchessault and the Vegas Golden Knights were able to accomplish Monday night in Winnipeg. Marchessault added his second goal of the game in the third period to help secure the win for Vegas. We have to make sure we come out with the same intensity that we did tonight and maybe a little bit extra. It was the third loss in the past four home games for the Jets. The Jets looked out of sync for the most part and didn't generate a whole lot of scoring chances after the first period. "We like our road game, we like where it was in the Nashville series and we're going to try and bring the same effort".

His Golden Knights teammates showed their huge gratitude to the fabulous netminder with two late goals in the first period, and, suddenly, the Jets were the pursuers. "If that was the choice, you just have to do everything and be a good teammate".

Winnipeg Jets head coach talks to the media after 3-1 loss to Vegas Golden Knights. The old Jets, who left town in 1996, were swept in both of their trips to the second round, while the new incarnation, which moved from Atlanta in 2011, lost in four straight to the Anaheim Ducks to open the 2015 playoffs. The veteran netminder finished with 30 saves. And only a minute later Nikolaj Ehlers hit the goal post as the Jets were swarming in the early going. Winnipeg will need their depth players to spend more time forechecking and playing the body again to swing momentum their way.

The Golden Knights first goal came 13:23 into the 1st.

Then, about 90 seconds after the Jets' strike, the Golden Knights answered. Shea Theodore and Ryan Carpenter had the assists and the Golden Knights had a one goal lead. It was just a turnover, kind of a lack of communication with the line change. Any momentum that was gained from the Jets' goal was immediately sucked out of the building as soon as Marchessault's backhander hit the back of the net. That honor would have to go to either goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury for holding off the Jets' offense and making several big saves, or perhaps Jonathan Marchessault for scoring two more goals to continue his incredible season.

Luckily, unlike in Game 1 when the second shot he saw beat him from 40+ feet out, Fleury was able to turn away every early chance, including one that snuck under him and was cleared off the line by Nate Schmidt. Frequently, these rushes were led by defensemen Jacob Trouba, Tyler Myers, or Dustin Byfuglien.
