Ex-Minnesotan Haula playing key role for Golden Knights in playoffs

Jonathan Marchessault scored twice and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 30 shots, lifting Vegas Golden Knights to a 3-1 series-evening win over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals. He has 15 points (6 G, 9 A) in 12 playoff games and, in the playoffs, Vegas has outscored the opposition 11-2 during 5-on-5 play with Marchessault on the ice.

"We were on them", Golden Knights forward Erik Haula said.

"You watched the goals".

Led by goaltender Braden Holtby, who has been superb since getting back the starting spot in Game 3 of the first round, the Capitals look to get to their second Stanley Cup Final in franchise history.

Tomas Tatar and Jonathan Marchessault scored in the first period to give the Knights the lead for good. "The other one was a power-play goal so just put it behind and forget about it and move on".

"That line was incredible", Schmidt said. "We knew they were going to be faster this game and that's what they were".

The year was 1994 and CFLs American expansion was well underway, and the Vegas Posse were coming off a very rough 5-13 season (not quite like the Vegas Golden Knights we know today).

Vegas weathered another early storm in Game 2, but steadied things to grab a 2-0 lead before responding with Marchessault's second of the night just 88 seconds after the Jets got to within one midway through the third period. Winnipeg will need their depth players to spend more time forechecking and playing the body again to swing momentum their way. If that trend holds, he'll be a great play in Game 3 in Vegas on Wednesday.

"They came out flying again with a lot of speed", Fleury said. "He's a small target but he's always there". So was the effort from Reilly Smith, who got the primary assist. His competitiveness runs outside of the hockey rink as well. Now with Vegas and Winnipeg in the Conference Final (first for each franchise) we get to see this odd yet always heated matchup all over again, this time on ice.

"You can't worry about whether you lost the last one or won", Gallant said. "I tried to do that tonight".

"It was definitely an important game for our group", he said.

A trial has been delayed in a lawsuit accusing New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning of selling bogus "game-worn" equipment to unsuspecting collectors as part of a long-running scam. "He's the best goalie in the playoffs as far as I'm concerned".

The win drastically changes the dynamic of the series.

They finally got a return on the investment in Monday's 3-1 win in Game 2 of the Western Conference Final.

Serena Williams' coach says she will play the French Open beginning in two weeks. "You want to test yourself every night and you want to be able to leave your mark on the game". "We showed the hockey world that we own the right to be here". That goal shut the crowd down, but the rest of the 1st and the entire 2nd refused to let them, or the Jets, back in it.

The chip lodged firmly on Marchessault's shoulder appears to be going nowhere. Tuch proved his worth with 15 goals and 22 assists, and it has been hard for Wild fans to watch both elevate their play in the playoffs: Haula has three goals and three assists, Tuch four goals and three assists, and each has a game-winning goal.
