Jonathan Marchessault vowed after the Golden Knights‘ morning skate to come out swinging in Game 3 of the Western Conference final [url=http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/billy-price-jersey-cheap]Cheap Billy Price Jersey[/url] , looking to avoid a back-and-forth affair with the Winnipeg Jets.
He didn’t disappoint.
For the second straight game, Marchessault scored two goals – including one just 35 seconds into the game – to lead Vegas to a 4-2 victory Wednesday night, helping the expansion Golden Knights to a 2-1 series lead.
Vegas, two wins from advancing to the Stanley Cup final, improved to 5-1 at home in the playoffs and host Game 4 on Friday night.
”We worked all year to get in a position like that,” Marchessault said. ”We definitely can’t take it for granted. They got to come out like their season’s on the line, so we’ve got to be ready to push back and get some energy off the crowd.”
Marchessault added an empty-net goal with 3 seconds left, becoming the first player in league history to score in the first and last 60 seconds of the same Stanley Cup playoff game, according to the NHL. He leads Vegas with 17 points (eight goals, nine assists) in the postseason, and needs two goals to tie the NHL record for the most by a player in his club’s first postseason appearance.
James Neal and Alex Tuch also scored for Vegas, while Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 33 shots.
Mark Scheifele scored both of Winnipeg’s goals and has a playoff-leading 14 goals in 15 postseason games. Connor Hellebuyck had 26 saves for the Jets, who arrived in Las Vegas having outscored their opposition 23-15 in road games during the playoffs.
”A few miscues and they made us pay for it; that can’t happen,” Scheifele said. ”We can’t sulk on this too long. We’ve got to pick ourselves up tomorrow and be ready for a big game on Friday.”
Scheifele is correct [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/odell-beckham-jr-jersey]Odell Beckham Jr Jersey[/url] , with history against the Jets, who are trailing in a series for the first time this postseason. Teams with a 2-1 lead in the conference final (or NHL semifinals) have won the series 35 of 43 times (81.4 percent) since 1975.
”That’s an important challenge,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. ”We’re going to have to be able to handle that. It would be rare that you lead the series straight through. We want to make sure we deal with our loss, don’t carry it too heavily and then come up with our finest game of the post-season.”
The problem for Winnipeg is stopping a Golden Knights team that is finally seeing production from the depth of its lineup.
While Marchessault got things going early to give the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead, their second line of Neal, Tuch and Erik Haula continued to heat up.
After Scheifele tied the game in the second period, Neal answered 12 seconds later after Haula dished a perfect pass to give the Knights a 2-1 lead. Tuch notched his fifth goal of the playoffs after Neal fed him with a nifty pass from behind the net.
”They played on the road trip, they just didn’t have many chances to score and I thought they were more involved in the offense and they were skating, and they played really well,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said about his second line.
Scheifele’s second goal of the game 18 seconds into the third seemingly sparked the Jets, but they couldn’t solve Fleury, who made several huge saves late in the game to preserve Vegas’ lead.
After stonewalling Tyler Myers‘ breakaway attempt with 11:50 left in the game, he stymied Scheifele’s back-to-back shot with 9:30 remaining. Less than two minutes later, he smothered the puck with a slew of players piled near the crease.
”He’s made unbelievable saves [url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/kolton-miller-jersey-cheap]Kolton Miller Jersey[/url] ,” Gallant said of Fleury. ”They were obviously important at a key time for us. That’s Fleury. He’s been great all playoffs, he’s been great all year for us. He’s a guy that has fun out there. I’m sweating on the bench yelling my head off and I look down there and he’s just having fun.”
He sure is. During a scrum behind the Golden Knights’ net with 2:34 left in the second period, Fleury reached over and tickled the left ear of the Jets’ Blake Wheeler – whose back was to the goalie.
”I was just sitting there and people, they were fighting,” Fleury said, ”and (I was) trying to have a little smile by myself. That was it.”
Winnipeg pulled Hellebuyck with 1:03 left, but Marchessault’s empty-netter with 3 seconds left sealed the win.
”I didn’t imagine it in October and November, but come around January, we knew we had a good hockey team,” Gallant said. ”I didn’t know if we’d go this far right now, but I knew we had (as good) a chance as anybody else. Early January, around the All-Star game, I was a strong believer in our team. I knew we were going to battle well, compete well and no one was going to push us over [url=http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/andy-dalton-jersey]Authentic Andy Dalton Jersey[/url] , that’s for sure.”
NOTES: The Jets had scored a power-play goal in 11 of the 13 playoff games, but was 0 for 2 with a man advantage in this one. … Winnipeg hadn’t lost back-to-back games during the playoffs. The last time it dropped consecutive games was a three-game losing streak (0-2-1) from March 10-13. … The Golden Knights welcomed the family of Humboldt Broncos head coach and GM Darcy Haugan, wife Christina and children Carson and Jackson. … With his two goals, Scheifele now owns the NHL record for most goals scored on the road in a single playoffs with 11, surpassing Sidney Crosby and Joe Mullen, each with 10.
Game 4 is Friday night in Las Vegas.
An investigation into a fire that heavily damaged a lodge at the base of one the nation’s premier ski destinations in Idaho determined where the fire started but failed to find out what caused it, officials said.
The April 18 fire at the Warm Springs Lodge in Ketchum started next to an exterior wall and spread to the roof, Sun Valley Resort spokeswoman Kelli Lusk told the Idaho Mountain Express in a story published Wednesday.
The Idaho State Fire Marshal’s office, Ketchum Fire Department and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives worked on the investigation.
”While we know where the fire started, the cause is undetermined,” Lusk told the newspaper.
No employees were inside the building that had been closed for the season, and there were no injuries [url=http://www.pittsburghpenguinsteamshops.com/authentic-derick-brassard-jersey]Derick Brassard Penguins Jersey[/url] , including among the 60 firefighters who fought the blaze.
Lust told The Associated Press on Wednesday that no damage estimate was available. She said plans are to rebuild the lodge.
”The interior of the lodge is ready for the next phases of the rebuild,” she said. ”We feel our guests will be pleased with the revitalized Warm Springs Lodge when we are ready to reopen.”
Lusk said the lodge will open as soon as possible, but didn’t say whether that would be by the time ski season resumes later this year.
The lodge made of river stones and logs was built in 1993 and is one of two base lodges at different access points to the slopes of the 9,150-foot (2,789-meter) Bald Mountain.
Bald Mountain and Sun Valley Resort are consistently listed nationally as among the top destinations for skiers and draws international visitors.
Bald Mountain, typically called Baldy by locals, has also produced some of the nation’s top alpine skiers and snowboarders.
Picabo Street learned to ski at Sun Valley and won a silver medal in the downhill at the 1994 Olympics in Norway and a gold medal in the super G at the 1998 Olympics in Japan. Snowboarder Kaitlyn Farrington also learned at the resort and won a gold medal in the halfpipe at the 2014 Olympics in Russia.
The Sun Valley region became a seasonal destination for the elite after novelist Ernest Hemingway, who is buried in Ketchum, and other stars started visiting in the late 1930s.
