The Golden Knights are 5-1 in their last six games against teams with a winning percentage above.600. "The more direct we are, the faster we play, it helps us play fast and get all four lines rolling and get everyone involved", said Jets forward Andrew Copp, whose club is 4-2 on the road during the playoffs. "I think for sure that brought us together fairly quick and made us really close". "We like where it was in the Nashville series".

Jonathan Marchessault scored twice and said the expansion Vegas Golden Knights sent a message, bouncing back with a 3-1 series-evening win over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals.

Did the Vegas Golden Knights show they are for real and deserve to be in the third round of the playoffs with this win?

"We didn't feel we started poorly at all", Jets coach Paul Maurice said.

The Golden Knights eliminating the San Jose Sharks in six games drew 11.4 million watchers in Canada. "We've got ourselves a series".

After losing the series opener, Marchessault told reporters the team faced a must-win game. "We did so well during the regular season and then went home early in the playoffs". "But oh well, now that the Jets realize Vegas is a good team and they're someone to contend with, it'll be a hard-fought series", he said.

"Everybody is going to bed early. It was a great hockey game". "At this time of the year, it's all business". 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. Everybody is buying into that. We're going to go to Vegas. It's all about rest and recovery. You guys hear that a thousand times.

Golden Knights fans erupt at a watch party at Red Rock Casino after Golden Knights right wing Alex Tuch scored a first period goal during Vegas' game two NHL Western Conference Finals road matchup with the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, May 14, 2018, in Las Vegas.

The Jets were clumsy and careless, left scrambling far too many times after coughing up the puck or giving it away to Vegas on a sloppy pass or clearing attempt. In the end, they settled it the way you might expect from competitive professional.

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

"It was just a loose puck and it clicked off the inside of the post".

"If anything had to happen, the experience is good to have", Lagace said.

Playing mostly on Vegas' second line with James Neal and Erik Haula, Perron was among the many Knights who had a career year, amassing 66 points in 70 games. A minute-and-a-half after Kyle Connor trimmed the Golden Knights' lead to one, Marchessault broke in on a 2-on-1 with Reilly Smith and made no mistake, burying a backhand over the outstretched glove of Connor Hellebuyck. But considering how the Jets have played on the road lately, that might not be a good thing. "It's going to be a game-time decision".

"I threw scissors and Bucky threw paper, so I won", Copp said with a smile. "Some nights, it's different lines that are going to take your game to the next level, and I think they'll be ready to go". The Jets had a day off, but a long flight in. "And really what you're doing is adjusting back to form".
