Vegas Grounds the Jets

Here's how the four NHL conference finalists match

Game 3 on Tuesday night in Washington can't come soon enough for the Lightning, who are in a historically hard spot after losing twice at home to open the series.

"We made some adjustments and were able to get those two killed off in overtime", Dillon said. "Maybe we showed the hockey world we deserve to be here".

Winnipeg defenceman Jacob Trouba said they knew the Golden Knights would come out quicker in this game. Then, Tomas Tatar missed a wide open net but quickly recovered the rebound and put it in the net to give the Golden Knights the lead.

Suddenly, Winnipeg might have the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup, especially if it wins Game 2 at home on Monday night (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN).

"There was about 57 minutes of that game that was pretty good for us", Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. "We just couldn't get any momentum going". The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 23.4 percent of their power play opportunities.

Uphill battle for Lightning: Jon Cooper walked into the locker room and didn't get the sense Lightning players were down in the dumps about losing the first two games of the Eastern Conference finals.

It was 71st career playoff victory Fleury in his 125th playoff start, moving him into a tie with Jacques Plante for ninth place on the all-time postseason wins list.

"Everybody steps up at some point", Fleury said.

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.

Kyle Connor scored the Jets' lone goal in the loss. "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".

Jonathan Marchessault scored his fifth of the playoffs making it 2-0 for Vegas at the end of twenty minutes.

Before the fans were even able to sit back down, Marchessault skated to the front of the net, received another ideal pass from Smith, and backhanded the puck past Connor Hellebuyck to seal the game for Vegas. The Knights would kill the penalty but not without a few Jets chances, which was enough to balance the ice once again. Connor took advantage, squeezing a shot between Fleury and the post from the bottom of the left circle 7:17 into the third.

Golden Knights fans celebrate a goal by Alex Tuch, not pictured, during the second period of Game 5 of an NHL hockey second-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Friday, May 4, 2018. "I think we played great and took control the rest of the game". "I tried to do that tonight".

Of the 41 previous times a team lost the first two games in the conference finals, 39 went on to lose the series - including every team that lost its first two at home. He has only one goal in 12 games but his 14 points trail only Marchessault who has 15.

Like Tatar, forward Tomas Nosek was in the Golden Knights' lineup Monday night for the first time since May 2.

That being said, the Jets are the most formidable playoff opponent Vegas has faced.
