, Calif. (AP) — After an up-and-down second season together, the top line for the Vegas Golden Knights is starting to click again when it really counts.Jonathan Marchessault had two goals and two assists, Reilly Smith had a goal and three assists and the Golden Knights won for the ninth time in 10 games, beating the San Jose Sharks 7-3 on Monday night.William Karlsson added a goal and an assist as the trio combined for 10 points, giving the line 33 points during this 10-game stretch that started with the arrival of Mark Stone in a deadline deal from Ottawa.“It’s definitely been a little bit of a roller coaster year for us,” Marchessault said. “We’re not producing as much as last year. It’s fine. I think we’re playing well still defensively and shutting down big lines on the other teams. When we do that I think that’s when we’re the most successful.”The way they have played the past three weeks showed why it’s so important for the Sharks to catch Calgary in the Pacific Division race and avoid a first-round playoff series against the surging Golden Knights. San Jose trails the Flames by one point, and Calgary has a game in hand. The Sharks have a seven-point edge over Vegas in the race for second place and home-ice advantage in the first round.The Sharks dropped their third straight home game in regulation for the first time in three years as they failed once again with an opportunity to clinch a playoff berth.“I’m concerned,” said Logan Couture, who scored twice. “We hadn’t played well, we’re giving up too many chances دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, too many easy goals. We’re giving up odd-man rushes. We have to get back to shooting the puck.”Perhaps more concerning for San Jose was the absence of captain Joe Pavelski, who missed his first game with an injury in more than eight years. Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said the team’s leading goal scorer has a lower-body injury and is out longer than day to day.Joe Thornton had a goal for San Jose. Martin Jones allowed three goals on 11 shots before being replaced by Aaron Dell in the first period.Stone, Paul Stastny and Cody Eakin also scored for Vegas. Malcolm Subban made 36 saves in place of injured Marc-Andre Fleury.The game was a possible playoff preview, with the teams lined up to meet in the first round based on the current standings. A rivalry is already building between the clubs after Vegas knocked out San Jose in six games in the second round on the way to a Stanley Cup Final appearance during its expansion season a year ago.The intensity was high from the start, with Couture’s goal on the opening shift setting the tone for a wild first period that featured five goals, 25 shots, five power plays and a goalie change.The Sharks tried to take control early. Tomas Hertl hit the post on the second shift before Vegas responded with two goals from its top line and another from the No. 1 power-play unit to take a 3-2 lead after one.Marchessault and Smith were involved in all three goals, capped by Marchessault’s bad-angle shot that ended Jones’ night.“I think we were just getting rewarded tonight,” Smith said. “We had other games where I think we were probably making better plays, creating better opportunities. Tonight the pucks were just going in for us.”The Golden Knights could have had even more when they got a power play late in the period after Micheal Haley took exception to Ryan Reaves‘ hard hit on Melker Karlsson before a line change. Haley rushed over and tried to pull Reaves off the bench for a fight دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, getting a penalty on the play.Vegas couldn’t capitalize despite getting 16 seconds of a two-man advantage for too many men on the ice.But the Golden Knights did take advantage of a bad penalty in the second period when Thornton hit Shea Theodore late in the offensive zone for an interference call. That led to Stastny’s goal that put Vegas up 4-2 heading into the third and the Golden Knights poured it on from there.NOTES: Only two Vegas players had previously recorded four points in a game: Karlsson and Theodore did it last season. … Couture’s first goal gave him 500 career points.UP NEXTVegas: Hosts the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.San Jose: Visits the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday. LAS VEGAS (AP) Marc-Andre Fleury sat shirtless in front of his locker, staring blankly, his exhausted gaze fixed nowhere. Pads still strapped to his legs after another spectacular night’s work, the Vegas Golden Knights goalie looked as if he were trying to gather his thoughts, trying somehow to make sense of it all.The rest of the hockey world is, too, as the newly minted Knights play Sunday with the most improbable prize of all at stake – a chance to go to the Stanley Cup Final.The story is well known by now, or at least it should be. But the fantasy has never been so close to reality as it is now, with the Knights up 3-1 going into Sunday’s game against the Jets in Winnipeg.An expansion team born last October on the heels of the Las Vegas massacre that took 58 lives is on the brink of winning it all, confounding both hockey experts and expert bookies alike.Even the guys on the other team are shaking their heads at what the hockey gods wrought.”You know it’s just the stars are just aligning for them دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
,” Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck said. ”But it’s not going to stay that way.”Maybe not, partly because hockey is a notoriously fickle game. But in this gambling town the odds are suddenly in the house’s favor.With the hope they don’t have to play at home again until the Stanley Cup Final, the Knights trotted out some old Vegas mojo Friday night with Wayne Newton and the Blue Man Group making appearances to root the team on. The Backstreet Boys were there and rapper Lil Jon took the microphone to lead the cheers just before Reilly Smith punched in the go-ahead goal in the third period.And, of course, this being Las Vegas the guy doing the anthems was a singing gondolier whose day job is serenading tourists in the faux canals of Venice just across the street.There’s nothing fake about this team now one win from one of most improbable runs ever. Once 500-1 longshots to win the Stanley Cup in their first year, the Knights are now favored – at least in the sports books – to win it all.It’s enough to make even Bark-Andre Furry – the lovable canine and goalie namesake who is now the unofficial team mascot – to sit up and take notice.”It’s nice, but the last one is always the toughest to get,” Fleury said. ”I think we have to keep the same mind set and just go and take it one game at a time and not think too far ahead and be ready to play that next game because they are going to be coming hard.”That mentality has worked well for a team that began the season as an afterthought, a collection of unwanted players from other teams thrown together in hopes of winning a respectable number of games in their first year.

, had been unceremoniously fired from the Florida Panthers, left on the side of a road with his luggage as the team bus headed down the road.It’s been a remarkable run for a team that likes to call itself the Golden Misfits. They’ve struck gold in Las Vegas, a town that loves winners and has embraced its first major pro sports team.Just how remarkable? Well, consider that while the Knights are five wins from bringing home the Stanley Cup in their first year, the Toronto Maple Leafs – a member of the NHL’s exclusive Original Six club – haven’t won one in the last 51 years.On Friday, the Knights used the same formula – speed and stellar goaltending – that has worked for them all year to beat the Jets 3-1 and take a commanding advantage in the Western Conference finals. It was the third straight win for the Knights, who have no illusion on how tough getting win No. 4 will be.”No team is going to go out quietly this time of the year,” Gallant said.Still, everything seems to be aligning in the Knights’ favor.

, but they’re also getting the kind of bounces and breaks that are usually the difference in a series between two evenly matched teams.That continued in Game 4 as Dustin Byfuglien whiffed on an attempt near the blue line and Smith scooped up the loose puck and raced down the ice to score the winner over the shoulder of Hellebuyck with 6:58 left.Soon the Knights were celebrating, and Elvis was singing. Viva Las Vegas blared through the arena, and the crowd of 18,697 filed out happily into the warm desert night.One win away for a team no one dares bet against.—-Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.
