Behind the Armor: The Golden Knight tells his Knight's tale

Behind the Armor: The Golden Knight tells his Knight's tale

It just wasn't their Knight. Marchessault made it 2-0 with 2:38 remaining in the first period, coming after Tomas Tatar scored his first goal of the postseason four minutes earlier.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights evened the Western Conference final at 1-1 Monday with a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

A day after a tough 4-2 loss on home ice, the Jets were keeping it light as they arrived on the Las Vegas strip. There's been times that I doubted myself if I could really do this.

John Langeler got the chance to talk with him one-on-one on what it's like being the Golden Knight.

"We know how to play on the road". "That's what it was all night".

"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", Trouba said. "We got a couple posts on us, and we were not right". We started to shed away the "expansion team" label in here, and we started to believe we're just one of the teams in the National Hockey League and we can compete like everybody else.

Then their engines sputtered while Vegas cranked it up.

The players had a bounce in their step as they arrived for a media availability at the Bellagio Hotel, with Scheifele racing to get into the scrum ahead of Copp and goaltender Connor Hellebuyck. Connor took advantage, squeezing a shot between Fleury and the post from the bottom of the left circle 7 minutes, 17 seconds into the third.

The Golden Knights, enjoying the greatest season of any first-year expansion club in major North American sports history, equalized the best-of-seven Western Conference Final at 1-1 with game three Wednesday at Las Vegas. "I think every professional player loves being able to step up on a stage like this".

"I encourage a very strategic goal game that we're trying to make it very hard for the shooters, not just trying to have all the answers for the shooter's shot", Prior said.

Rapper TI arrested outside his gated community
As for the assault charge, T.I. says he "may have been hurt by my words", but says he never laid a hand on the guy. The arrest occurred when the rapper attempted to gain entry into his housing community.

"That third goal, it was a bad play by [Josh] Morrissey, yeah. If his stick gets that puck we're all praising him, right?" The Golden Knights had only 15 blocks in game 1.

Tallon wasn't the only general manager to be wrong on Marchessault and Smith.

No big deal, said Roy. "We like where it was in the Nashville series". "Once we turn pucks over, we're going the other way quick".

Monday's Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party drew about 11,000 fans.

Both those streaks are on the line when the puck drops at T-Mobile Arena at 8 p.m. CST.

Vegas were the ones getting in front of pucks in game 2, registering 22 blocks.

Instead of increasing, the attendance has dropped ever since. The Jets have never trailed in a playoff series this spring, nor have they lost two in a row. Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup champion with the Pittsburgh Penguins, made 30 saves for the Golden Knights, who return home for the next two games and would host a sixth game if needed before their devoted fans.

- The Jets had 33 hits in Game 1 against the Golden Knights - the most in a game since the first round against the Minnesota Wild. The city had 13.0 local rating for Game 2 on NBCSN, the market's second-best rating for a cable game behind Game 6 vs. San Jose (14.0).

As interest in the Winnipeg Jets' playoff run grows across the country, a new survey has found one in five people living in the city have attended a Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party.
