Local Canadians say the Golden Knights' fever has struck them

Local Canadians say the Golden Knights' fever has struck them

The Jets won three games on the road, including Game 7, to advance to the Western Conference final for the first time in the city's National Hockey League history. A franchise that had never, ever won a single game in the second round of the playoffs has a dazzling array of offensive weapons, led by Conn Smythe frontrunner Mark Scheifele, who nearly singlehandedly buried the Nashville Predators in the second round.

"Playoffs in three, make a run for the Stanley Cup in five, and win the Stanley Cup in six", part-owner Foley said back then at the opening of the Knights' new practice facility.

"The coffee tastes great this morning", Wheeler said at a Friday afternoon press conference. Which team will get the early leg up as the series opens tonight with Game 1? When they meet starting Saturday night in Winnipeg in the Western Conference final, it will be a matchup between a team that missed the playoffs past year and one that didn't even play. This stunning fairy tale seems to have no end in sight as "Sin City' continues to accomplish the impossible, beating talented well established teams with their fast paced style of play, smothering defence and tremendous anticipation, not to mention a high level of skill". "You win 7-0 or you lose like last night, you always got to start fresh every night".

Sophomore sniper Patrik Laine was glad he wasn't on his way to Finland. They play the same way whether it's a nothing game in February or overtime in a playoff game.

Smith and Marchessault formed two-thirds of the Golden Knights' dominant first line and have led the team in playoff scoring with 11 points each through 10 games.

"There's not a lot of things that you can do if a game's not going your way if you can't use your timeout", Laviolette said. "But they are a fun team and they were awesome during the regular season and yeah, it would be easy jumping on board with them". Winnipeg is a deeper team, has a better powerplay and has more star power that can take over a game.

"Specifically, outstanding transition and speed", Jets coach Paul Maurice said of the Golden Knights. Byfuglien's 18 penalty minutes are the most among surviving players ...

Thousands of Jets fans ringed the blocks around Bell MTS Place for whiteout street parties at home games, but some changes have been made for the next series. All the tickets for Saturday were snapped up. During the regular season, he was 44-20 with a 2.36 GAA and a.924 save percentage overall, including 30-7 with a 2.31 GAA and a.921 save percentage here at home. I feel that all the edges point to the Golden Knights in this one and they should walk away with a hard-fought game one win.

Wheeler isn't buying that label.

"I have to say that (living in the Eastern time zone) I didn't get to watch them a lot before the playoffs". All of it has been a heartwarming story, nearly like a Disney movie, really, but now Cinderella has turned into a monster that can not be slain. The Knights won the matchup in those minutes, out-attempting the Kings 56-51, outshooting them 28-25, and outscoring them 2-1.

This series could be won on goaltending, and two of the very best will be between the pipes.

Mark Scheifele also scored twice, including one into an empty net, while Tyler Myers had the other goal for Winnipeg.

"I think this time of year, you have to be physical on them as much as you can", said Neal, who has 90 career playoff games on his resume.

"Try to limit them as much as we can". During Thursday night's game, the interest spiked, she said. So to come here, he's taken our team, I think you've seen what he's done.
