Stanley Cup Playoffs Buzz: Golden Knights top Sharks on Karlsson OT goal

Vegas Golden Knights vs. San Jose Sharks, 4-30-2018 - Pick and Prediction High-Intensity the Motto for Second Round of Stanley Cup Playoffs

The Sharks rallied to tie the game and force a second straight overtime with two goals in the third period.

The Sharks dominated the Golden Knights for the first period of game three Monday night, outshooting Vegas 14-4 at one point. They just couldn't find the finishing touch.

The desperate Sharks rallied from a 2-0 deficit with three second period goals with Brent Burns beginning the rally with a power play tally at the two minute mark.

Minutes later Jonathan Marchessault scored the Golden Knights' second power play goal of the game on a one-timer following a great cross-ice pass by Alex Tuch.

It was an impressive bounce back from their first loss of the playoffs in double overtime at home in Game 2 and wouldn't have been possible without Marc-Andre Fleury, who made 39 saves to hold off an early push by the Sharks and then robbed Logan Couture with a glove save in overtime.

This one stops a streaking Tomas Hertl in the first period to keep the game scoreless.

Game two went to double overtime, with Nashville barely scrapping out a 5-4 win. Both teams put up a defensive fight worthy of the Stanley Cup throughout the third period, keeping each other back through penalties and power plays, but it was the Knights who pulled out the overtime goal to give them the win. William Karlsson scored the game-winner with 11:43 remaining in overtime, giving Vegas a 2-1 series lead.

Game 4 is Wednesday back at SAP Center.

The Sharks simply didn't make the most of their 5-on-5 situations Monday, they failed to lock down the Knights when Vegas had a man advantage, and while Sharks goalie Martin Jones was good, Fleury was otherworldly. In six postseason games in 2018, Fleury has a record of 5-1 with a goals against average of 1.00, save percentage of.967 and three shutouts.

"He's getting evaluated by our doctors and medical staff, he went there the same time we started practice", Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant said.

"I thought we were better everywhere", Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. Barclay Goodrow stayed in the lineup, while Evander Kane drew back in after serving his suspension.

The Shark defense had been excellent following a troublesome five-minute stretch midway through the second period. Rask deserved no criticism after the way he has played in the first two games of the second round against the Lightning.

According to the NHL's player safety video, Kane was suspended because he cross-checked Bellemare twice, including once in the head, after the whistle had blown.

Schmidt scored his first career playoff goal last season as a member of the Washington Capitals. Tierney and Pavelski also combined to win four of eight faceoffs.

"If you look at years past I think it's nice for us to be an underdog", San Jose defenseman Brenden Dillon told nhl.com. I don't expect them to give it up that easily. "They're top line guys for a reason".
