The series now switches to San Jose for game three Monday night. Before the first faceoff took place the National Hockey League held their Lottery Draft.
Pastrnak assisted on each of Boston's first three goals and added another on Bergeron's third-period goal, giving him 12 helpers in eight playoff games. The Golden Knights know they can't afford a repeat performance tonight in San Jose. "Obviously we had to win it, but it's one game, so".
It seems like Karlsson must have been some geometry geek seeing that he nearly instinctively knew the puck would bounce off the boards directly to his stick between the left faceoff circle and the red line.
Grabbing the win in game-two was Martin Jones, who stopped 26 of the 29 shots that he faced to move to 5-1 with a 2.07 GAA and a.931 save percentage in the postseason this year and 21-15 with a 2.02 GAA and a.926 save percentage in the playoffs in his career. William Karlsson gave Vegas a 1-0 lead with just under two minutes remaining in the first before doubling the advantage just 26 seconds in to the second. This season, the team's 27-16 SU as the home team.
The Sharks have been a solid offensive team in the postseason so far as they come in ranked 6th in the league in scoring at 3.33 gpg, while also ranking 3rd in shots taken (34.8 spg) and 5th in power play conversions, converting on 25.0% of their chances. Right from the faceoff he circled near the right boards, found some extra speed and tucked a ideal wrap-around goal behind a stunned Fleury. And Pavelski and Kane both bring their own specialties to the game.
Nate Schmidt scored in the third at 13:28 to forge a 3-3 tie and send the game to overtime. The puck deflected off of Melker Karlsson's skate changing directions and fooling Jones. The Golden Knights have gone 24-19 on the road for the year and they have averaged 2.93 gpg and have allowed 2.91 gpg in those games.
A slow-motion replay from behind the net appears to show Sharks defenseman Brenden Dillon's left skate was responsible for making Jones hit the ice, but the goalie sold well the shaft of his stick making contact with Marchessault's torso. And while Gallant admitted he didn't like some of the calls against his team, or some of what he felt were missed calls, he also said his players brought a lot of it on themselves.
No goal. Play on boys. He was a scratch for all four games in the first round against Anaheim and Game 1 against Vegas.
NOTES: Burns' second-period goal ended Fleury's scoreless streak of 143:51, dating back to Game 3 of the opening round versus Los Angeles.
This was the second time fans gathered for a send-off in April. Logan Couture netted the equalizer at 11:08 with Burns scoring his second at 14:07 to give San Jose the lead.
Jon Merrill hooked Timo Meier at 5:05 and then Couture scored just eights seconds into the power play. While the Sharks only converted two of their man advantages, leading to the winning goal and a huge difference in shots.
Do you know the way to San Jose? Can they do it?
Vegas thought they won in the first overtime after Jonathan Marchessault scored on a rebound.
Play continues in the Shark tank on Monday night.
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Logan Couture's second goal of the game, on the power play at 5:13 of the second overtime, lifted the San Jose Sharks to a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night, tying their Western Conference semifinal series at one game apiece.
