Scoring their lone goal in the game was Kyle Connor, which was his 3rd of the playoffs.

Tomas Tatar scored 6:37 into the game for the Golden Knights. The puck went off the post and crossed behind Jets' goalie Connor Hellebuyck before sailing past the other post and clear of the net. A Vegas television reporter mentioned to centre Mark Scheifele how some players have apparently been "partying it up" during the year and whether the Jets might have an "early bed-time".

The series victor will face either Washington or Tampa Bay in the Stanley Cup Final. They outscored Nashville 11-3 in their final two games at Bridgestone Arena where the Preds were 28-9-4 during the regular season.

With the Golden Knights in a comfortable lead (well, maybe not that comfortable), they were content with just keeping the high-flying, offensive machine known as the Winnipeg Jets off the scoreboard. and they did just that. The Jets had a day off, but a long flight in.

Local lore suggests that several teams were struck by the Vegas flu during the inaugural season, but the Jets stressed they were not about to fall victim to the night life, given what's at stake.

Mathieu Perreault, the veteran of the Jets' group, got in front of the cameras first, knowing that the sooner you say your piece, the faster you can make your exit. The Jets have scored a total of six goals in those games and must now try and get back on track at the T-Mobile Arena where the Golden Knights have been very tough so far. He has yet to score a goal in the playoffs, but has accounted for seven assists in nine games. 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. With the way the Golden Knights move officials watch the play while the rest are changing and often there are a lot of Vegas players on the ice around the bench.

Naturally, that led to some questions Tuesday about how the Jets planned to face this latest challenge.

"I don't think you would have seen that (Monday) night after the game", he said. Each won once fairly convincingly in Winnipeg, with Vegas winning 3-1 in Game 2 on Monday night.

"We really love hockey but the Knights just really grew on us post-1 October", Ruby's dad, Harold Normile said.

The play was pretty even during the two games in Winnipeg.

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.

He was smiling when he said that - a recurring theme Tuesday.

But. the Marchessault show was not over just yet. "It's just a matter of how you react to it". Winnipeg is 8-1 when it scores the first goal while Vegas is 7-1.

There's that ever-present theme again, about simply enjoying the moment and not getting too high or too low after every game. We didn't think we were going to win four straight in the Western Conference final.

Ted Gobert lived in Winnipeg for more than 30 years but now lives in Pemberton, B.C. When he found out his beloved team was going to be playing in Vegas, he knew he had to get there. "It's a game of inches, but I thought our line had some good chances, especially in the second (period)", said Copp.
