Jets fall to Knights while attendance slumps at whiteout street party

The Las Vegas Golden Knights celebrate after Tomas Tatar scored on Winnipeg Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck during first period game 2 NHL Western Conference Finals hockey action in Winnipeg Manitoba Monday

The best-of-7 series is tied 1-1 after the Golden Knights defeated the Jets 3-1 at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg on Monday, rebounding from a 4-2 loss in Game 1 there on Saturday.

Gerard Gallant, Jonathan Marchessault and Marc-Andre Fleury have received most of the praise for the Golden Knights' incredible postseason run (rightfully so), but forward Reilly Smith has also played a significant role in Vegas' success.

A win on Wednesday night could ultimately allow Vegas to take control of the overarching momentum of the third-round matchup. Two first-period goals paced the way for the Golden Knights to get ahead of the Jets and their raucous crowd. Expect Vegas' two-way presence to tighten up so that Fleury's burden of pressure is alleviated, as the 33-year-old netminder continues to serve as the Conn Smythe favorite. What will happen in Game 3? "When any team at this level has a chance to make plays with time, they're going to make the right plays".

The words from the crowd might have motivated Fleury into a great game, as he stopped 30 of 31 shots in the win against the high-flying Jets. Sign up now for a free trial. "One more Vegas, they'll win the second home game but after that it's all us".

If you are a Jets fan you probably have an issue with the officiating last night- fair enough but a Golden Knights fan might have the same issue from game one.

The Jets pulled their goaltender to add another skater over the last couple minutes of the game, but Fleury didn't let the puck get past him again. Coming up with big goals and tonight that line (Marchessault, Smith and William Karlsson) was dominant.

Kyle Connor answered for the Jets with 12:43 remaining in the third period, the NHL's top rookie goal scorer with 31 connecting just inside the near post to the right of Vegas netminder Marc-Andre Fleury, the USA left winger's third playoff goal lifting Winnipeg within 2-1. "We'll get a lot of energy off of that".

With the Golden Knights in a comfortable lead (well, maybe not that comfortable), they were content with just keeping the high-flying, offensive machine known as the Winnipeg Jets off the scoreboard. and they did just that. They outscored Nashville 11-3 in their final two games at Bridgestone Arena where the Preds were 28-9-4 during the regular season. When teams are chasing the lead, it's tough for teams to battle back.

The Vegas Golden Knights are making a play to turn Saskatchewan against the Winnipeg Jets, and expand their own fan base.

Unable to find much to cheer about from the play of their team, fans had to be prompted by the Jumbotron to "Make some noise".

How many times have we seen that?

Viewership is up 70 percent from last year's final involving Nashville and Anaheim, which averaged 1.081 million viewers. You're not just good at home, you're good no matter where you go and it doesn't matter where you go.

"There's going to be moments in this series where they get scoring chances". The first, a tidy breakaway tally scored following a broken play in the neutral zone, was Vegas' second and gave them a 2-0 lead late in the first frame.
