Golden Knights' Tatar may return to lineup

Now the pesky Golden Knights, foolishly written off by some after the first game of the Western Conference Final, are alive and kicking after mimicking what the Nashville Predators did last round to slow down the Jets. "And they knew that, and they had to respond tonight, and they did in a big way".

The Jets closed the scoreless second period and started the third on the power play and still couldn't get the puck past Fleury. "We can't get behind this team 3-0". "It didn't hold but it didn't cost us, but certainly there's a 10 minute block there we're not going to like very much tomorrow". He has only one goal in 12 games but his 14 points trail only Marchessault who has 15. This makes the first period and the first goal extremely vital, as it has proven to be through the first two games. "Every time when you get a big game of our group, we show up, and tonight we definitely showed up". "We were just a bunch of hockey players that wanted to find a home, and we did". The Jets looked out of sync for the most part and didn't generate a whole lot of scoring chances after the first period.

"We were chasing the game again".

Blake Wheeler liked 57 minutes of Monday's game between Winnipeg and Vegas.

A healthy scratch for seven of the Knights' 11 playoff games coming into Monday, Tatar scored his first of the post-season off a slick feed from Shea Theodore at the side of Winnipeg's net.

"We kind of just dipped our toe in the water, a little bit of a feeling out process", Knights winger James Neal said.

The Jets outshot Vegas 31-28 as Connor Hellebuyck made 25 saves.

Fleury, who helped the Pittsburgh Penguins win three Stanley Cups, made key stops early and got help from teammate and a post in the opening minutes to keep the puck out of his net. There was an early Nikolaj Ehlers shot off the crossbar - his goal drought now stands at a career-worst 16 games - and a Mark Scheifele solo effort that squeaked through Fleury's pads but didn't have enough steam to reach the goal-line.

The Vegas Golden Knights entered play Monday night down in a playoff series for the first time in this postseason (and, therefore, for the first time ever as well).

Then, about 90 seconds after the Jets' strike, the Golden Knights answered.

The Golden Knights then dominated the final seven minutes of the opening period, scoring two goals less than four minutes apart and hitting the post on two more tries. Reilly Smith won the puck back as the Jets were changing their line.

The Jets undoubtedly stepped up for the second period, but Vegas thwarted their attacks. Neither team found the scoreboard in the second.

With 12:43 left in regulation time Connor brought the building back to life. Their title hopes rest largely on Fleury-with the third-best goals-against average (1.74) in the playoffs-and the defensive lines.

THE Winnipeg Jets are singing the first-goal blues this morning.

The Knights recently released around 1,100 tickets each for games 3, 4 and 6 of the conference finals, with prices ranging from $225 to $800, not including the even costlier seats right near the ice, Pollock said.

Nate Schmidt continued to be the most frequently deployed defenseman by the Golden Knights, after playing a team-high 23:02 in Game 1.

In Game 1, the Jets jumped out to an early lead en route to their 4-2 victory. The series now shifts to Las Vegas for the next two contests with game three scheduled for Wednesday.
