Mitch Moss On Golden Knights' Playoff Chances

NHL Playoffs 2018: LA Kings chances much worse without Drew Doughty

In contrast, nobody on Vegas' roster played more than 38 minutes, with defenseman Nate Schmidt leading the Golden Knights at 37:19.

Some players wrapped their chests and backs in cold wraps, while others received leg massages to subside their cramping, dehydrated muscles.

Game two went to double overtime Friday night until Erik Haula beat Kings' goalie Jonathan Quick stick side for the game-winner defeating Los Angeles 2-1.

"Such a relief at the end", said Fleury, who has allowed just one goal in a little more than 155 minutes over the first two games.

It's been a season of firsts for the Vegas Golden Knights in their inaugural season, and now they have their first playoff overtime hero.

"I would say so, everybody, including coaching staff, players, management", reaffirmed Gallant, who is the favourite to win the Jack Adams Award as National Hockey League coach of the year.

Vegas outshot Los Angeles 56-30, with Quick being the only reason the Golden Knights didn't score two, three or six goals.

"Haula's a great skater". "We know that we need traffic and we need a lot of pucks to the net".

The Golden Knights dominated play for nearly the entirety of the game but only capitalized twice. "Going into overtime we just stressed in the locker room to keep going after them, keep getting pucks behind them, keep playing north and keep playing fast". The entire game - all 54 saves - was for nothing.

Han has his own history with the pessimistic turn of phrase, uttering it a couple times in his older, battle-hardened years. That means they should be featured prominently in the film, which is good news for Star Wars and Donald Glover fans.

NOTES: The Golden Knights played their second playoff game on the one-year anniversary of Gerard Gallant being hired as head coach. It was tough on them.

But, you certainly can't blame Quick for this one. The timing couldn't be worse for a Los Angeles squad that is already without injured defensemen Jake Muzzin and Derek Forbort. Los Angeles took control in the first overtime, but it was all Vegas again in the second. "It was another great hockey team and there are too exhausted hockey teams for sure". "We knew what to expect, especially being Game 1 of the playoffs". Both of these teams were physical all game, with numerous scrums breaking out in front of the net, and the Kings' defense was stout while the Golden Knights' attack was relentless.

"It's not devastating", he said.

So, the Kings were certainly lucky to even take the game as far as they did, and they will need to pick up their play to have a chance in this series.

Replays showed that Doughty initially hit Carrier on the top of the left shoulder but the hit then continued and caught the Vegas forward in the head. "In the overtimes you have to play everybody". Both of these teams are in for a really rough series if this pace keeps up.Jets get first playoff victory in franchise historyWell, you know, the Jets 2.0.

Golden Knights enforcer Ryan Reaves, who was a healthy scratch for Game 1, didn't agree with the hit. "Now we've got to go home to take care of business at home".

I have watched this replay numerous times and still can't really comprehend it. Crosby's tip so nonchalant and at such a weird angle, yet the velocity on the redirect is staggering and it's perfectly placed off the iron and in.

It may have been the Kings' chances to win this series.

Gallant's post game press conference, which stretched to early Saturday morning, was partially held up when the microphone went out.
