After knotting its NHL Western Conference final series at 1-1 with a 3-1 victory at Winnipeg on Monday night, the Vegas Golden Knights now hold home-ice advantage for the best-of-seven series. It was not good last night but that's not what cost the Jets the game.
He's the person that gets the crowd going and the first one to take on the opposition.
"It's not the way I pictured the year, starting in October". "We liked the way we started". "We are all not part of the centre of our [old] teams and everybody seized the opportunity here and that's what has made our success".
"It just shows that any team is not that far away; you just have to have the right mindset, the right mentality, the right coaches to believe in guys and stick with their guys".
Prior, of course, was right. There's nothing better than guys beating their old teams.
"We didn't feel we started poorly at all", Jets coach Paul Maurice said. The Blues were eliminated in six second-round games by the Nashville Predators, the same team that won Game 7 against Perron's Anaheim Ducks in Round 1 the previous year.
When the Knights claimed him from the Blues in last June's expansion draft, Perron, who turns 30 in two weeks, anxious his best chances to win a championship might be behind him.
"I think you feed off the crowd for sure", Vegas defenseman Deryk Engelland said. Now the Golden Knights will look to keep it going here at home where they have been very tough this year.

But he missed the final six regular-season games with an upper-body injury, and didn't return until the third game of the Knights' first-round sweep of the Los Angeles Kings. Tuch proved his worth with 15 goals and 22 assists, and it has been hard for Wild fans to watch both elevate their play in the playoffs: Haula has three goals and three assists, Tuch four goals and three assists, and each has a game-winning goal.
Unlike Game 1, Winnipeg was unable to break out cleanly and create scoring chances on the rush. Gallant said Subban was day to day and declined to disclose the reason. That means Haula and Tuch still haven't beaten their former team, although it's safe to say they're getting the last laugh. We got that 2-0 lead and it was a different game for us. "I think we showed that". The veteran also boasts career-best postseason numbers in both categories, with a 1.68 GAA and.945 save percentage through 12 games. "I was just happy to be able to buy a home and stay there".
"Definitely excited about our effort tonight", Marchessault said. I'm hoping I get my feet under me as soon as possible. "It doesn't matter what city we play in, we're going to take care of ourselves". "It's going to be a game-time decision".
Copp gad a glorious rebound chance in the second period on Monday and while he beat Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, his shot rattled off the iron and the score remained 2-0 for the time being. Lagace was one of five goalkeepers Vegas used during an injury crisis last fall.
