It's pretty simple really, keep the Golden Knights busy doing something else than pressuring the Jets in their own zone.

"We've just got to stay with it better, realize that they have some guys on their team that can make plays as well", he said. They battled hard and played a hard game, so that's what we expected from them. "It was a great crowd when we were here for sure".

Winnipeg's top trio of Scheifele, Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor were tasked with that matchup early in this series, but Maurice later switched to using the line of Copp, Adam Lowry and Joel Armia. "They're going to feed off that, but we've played in hostile environments".

David Perron will be a game-time decision for the Vegas Golden Knights when they host the Winnipeg Jets in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final at T-Mobile Arena on Wednesday (9 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS). They'll surely serve as a warm memory from the Golden Knights' first Stanley Cup run. Let us know in the comments section below. The Golden Knights have gone 4-1 at home in the postseason and have averaged 3.60 gpg in those games, while here at home for the year they have gone 33-13 and have averaged 3.57 gpg and have allowed 2.39 gpg in those games.

They upped that to three wins away from home versus the Predators, including a series-clinching Game 7 victory. "If his stick gets that puck we're all praising him, right?" He has yet to score a goal in the playoffs, but has accounted for seven assists in nine games.

"To get to the conference final, you would have had to spend the vast majority of time true to form. It's all about rest and recovery, and that's our focus each and every day here". Vegas, behind two goals by William Karlsson, defeated the Jets 5-2 on November 10 in the only regular-season meeting between the two teams at T-Mobile Arena.

The line also combined for a goal and four points in the series opener.

"Anybody's top line around the league, certainly anybody's who's left is going to be a real power".

Tomas Tatar scored 6:37 into the game for the Golden Knights.

"I was not impressed with Vegas' play at all". Erik Haula and Ryan Carpenter then both hit the post in the final 2 1/2 minutes of the period.

Was he Vegas' best player on Monday? "Little breaks last night might not have went our way last night but it's a long series and we've got to concentrate on the next game". That honor would have to go to either goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury for holding off the Jets' offense and making several big saves, or perhaps Jonathan Marchessault for scoring two more goals to continue his incredible season.

Ted Gobert flew in from B.C.to watch his beloved Winnipeg Jets play in the Western Conference Finals.

The edge in games like these often comes down to execution and the Jets are justifiably proud of the level of consistency they've achieved.

The former Winnipegger is in town with another friend from B.C. and said he has followed other teams before, but it always comes down to the Jets.

"They are the best fans in Vegas and they are definitely going to show it off", Marchessault said.
