Fleury Neal find another level in Game 3 thriller

It just wasn't their Knight.

In Game 1, the Golden Knights fell behind 3-0 in the first 7:35.

The emotional let down of the game seven win finally caught up with the Winnipeg Jets and the result was a 3-1 win for the Vegas Golden Knights.

Regardless of what happens to the Golden Knights in this series, they can rest easy knowing that they stole a player like Smith.

How many times have we seen that? Forward Jonathan Marchessault, who scored twice, said they didn't spend too much time in the defensive zone, got in on the forecheck and put pressure on the Jets defense.

"It's upsetting. It wasn't their night", said fan John Capstick, who initially didn't even want to talk about the loss.

"There's going to be moments in this series where they get scoring chances. That's what it was all night". And following the Golden Knights' 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets, a road win in a raucous building that drew the series level at one win apiece, Vegas made good on that promise. They fired 10 shots at Fleury in the first nine minutes and had some golden chances.

At the 17:22 mark the Golden Knights were ahead 2-0, but they knew the Jets wouldn't abort their mission.

Marc-Andry Fleury had to deal with Jets fans being noisy and rambunctious all game when the Vegas Golden Knights face Winnipeg in the MTS Center, but he's spinning the atmosphere in a positive direction. Marchessault restored the two-goal lead 1:28 later.

"I threw scissors and Bucky threw paper, so I won", Copp said with a smile.

After splitting the first two games, the Jets realize they will need to crank up their game a bit in order to avoid falling behind in a series for the first time in three rounds.

"That third goal, it was a bad play by [Josh] Morrissey, yeah". You're not just good at home, you're good no matter where you go and it doesn't matter where you go. "We'll get a lot of energy off of that".

Smith slid the puck over and Marchessault made it count. "That's probably the biggest thing with them", said Copp. "We just need to look at ourselves in the mirror at the end of the game and if we can do that we'll be fine".

It looked like they were going to pick up where they left off.

"Forty-thousand people with the "Whiteout" in Winnipeg can't be wrong", he said.

Despite a capacity for 27,000 and the temperature still being a toasty 15 C at 9:30 p.m., just 11,000 party-goers showed up Monday, according to Economic Development Winnipeg, which organizes the event. That prompted organizers to try controlling attendance at 27,000 by issuing first-come, first-served free tickets. The Jets are a +125 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals.

The series between the Golden Knights and Winnipeg Jets is the most-watched Western Conference Final not involving Chicago in NBC Sports Group history, the network announced Tuesday.

Viewership is up 70 percent from last year's final involving Nashville and Anaheim, which averaged 1.081 million viewers.

NBC Sports' coverage of the National Hockey League playoffs has the highest ratings in six years, including a combined audience delivery of 1.776 million viewers through four games.
