The Vegas Golden Knights host the Winnipeg Jets in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final. Here’s everything you need to know to watch.
On Monday, the Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Winnipeg Jets by a final score of 3-1 in Game 2 of the Western Conference Final. Strong performances from the likes of Marc-Andre Fleury, Jonathan Marchessault and Tomas Tatar was the central avenue through which the Golden Knights snatched victory from the jaws of defeat and evened the series up.
A win on Wednesday night could ultimately allow Vegas to take control of the overarching momentum of the third-round matchup. In order to walk away on top, the Golden Knights will have to continue to employ intense pressure in the defensive zone and ensure that the Jets’ devastating offense is given very few options. 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.
For Winnipeg, Game 3 is an opportunity to usher forth a disappointment for the books at T-Mobile Arena. A victory on the road can only come into fruition if the Jets’ stars echo the level of prowess that they demonstrated as visitors in Nashville. Look for Patrik Laine, Dustin Byfuglien, Connor Hellebuyck, Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele — who recently set a postseason record for road goals in a single series — to log tough minutes as they aim to disappoint Vegas’ fans.
