  • Vegas Golden Knights vs. San Jose Sharks, 4-30-2018 - Pick and Prediction

The Golden Knights have stolen home ice advantage back for the second round of the playoffs.

With just under two minutes remaining in regulation, Tomas Hertl carried the puck as he muscled his way into the crease of the Vegas net forcing the OT and Karlsson's continued success.

Miller and Marchessault's goals came on the power play, redeeming the Golden Knights' of a poor performance on the special teams during Saturday night's loss in Las Vegas.

"It's not going to be like this every night", Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said.

Gerard Gallant challenged the play for goaltender interference, but the goal was upheld after review.

Martin Jones has denied 26.0 shots per game as the top selection in goal for San Jose. Can San Jose build on that tonight with another win as the favorite in Game 3?

Even with the Sharks outshooting the Golden Knights 16-8 Vegas came storming back like a summer dust storm tallying three goals to grab a two goal lead with three unanswered goals.

San Jose (-130) is now the favorite over Vegas (+110), and the Over/Under (O/U) has been set at 6 goals (-135 to bet the under, +115 for the over).

Vegas lost for the first time in the playoffs after winning their first five games by a 14-3 margin, including a 7-0 victory in Game 1.

"I thought we were better everywhere", Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. Then David Perron drew a penalty on Brendan Dillon and Vegas took advantage.

Minutes later Jonathan Marchessault scored the Golden Knights' second power play goal of the game on a one-timer following a great cross-ice pass by Alex Tuch.

The Golden Knights felt pretty good going into the locker room with a two-goal lead on the road.

With 5:53 left in that period, defenseman Brent Burns gave the Sharks their first lead in the series when, off a face-off to the right of the Vegas goal in a four-on-four situation, he zipped behind Marc-Andre Fleury's net and deftly sneaked the puck between the left post and Fleury for a 3-2 lead.

After Thursday night's embarrassing 7-0 defeat to the Vegas Golden Knights, San Jose center and captain Joe Pavelski displayed the pride that comes with spending all 12 of his National Hockey League seasons as a Shark.

"He's won three Stanley Cups", Couture said when asked if he's ever seen Fleury play better than right now.

Vegas did play better as the period went on, created a few scoring chances on Sharks' goaltender Martin Jones.

The Blue Jackets are the only team this postseason to force overtime with a goal in the final five minutes and win, having done it in Game 1 against the Capitals. "But each game has its own identity, you can't rest on what you did last game and just hope they walk away".

But the 26-year-old left wing did make his presence felt - and that served as another reminder why the Sharks acquired him at the National Hockey League trade deadline in late February. He took the place of Ryan Carpenter.
