SAN JOSE Authentic Jared Goff Jersey , Calif. (AP) Shortly after the San Jose Sharks were denied by the iron for the fourth time of the night, Marc-Andre Fleury rubbed the goal post to thank it for his good fortune.There’s something magical about the ride the expansion Vegas Golden Knights have been on all season and now it’s going all the way to the Western Conference Final.Fleury made 28 saves in his fourth shutout of the playoffs and the Golden Knights have made it to the NHL’s final four in their inaugural season after beating the San Jose Sharks 3-0 in Game 6 of their second-round series Sunday.”It was maybe a little bit of a shock, but I’m proud of our team, our organization, the way they did things here,” Fleury said. ”I’m proud to be where we are right now.”Fleury, who was part of three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Pittsburgh, is a main reason for the success. He allowed just three goals in a first-round sweep against Los Angeles, posted shutouts in Games 1 and 6 against the Sharks and was also spectacular in an overtime win in Game 3.He had plenty of help from a crew of castoffs who have come together in Vegas to form a team that has a legitimate shot at a championship. Vegas next will play either Winnipeg or Nashville in the Western Conference Final. The Jets lead that series 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Monday night.”We deserve to be here,” coach Gerard Gallant said. ”We’re a good team, we play hard and we played well all season long. The two teams we played were very good hockey teams and we were very evenly matched with those teams.”Jonathan Marchessault opened the scoring, Nate Schmidt added an insurance goal that was only detectable by replay and Cody Eakin sealed it with an empty-netter to help Vegas become just the third team in NHL history to win multiple series in its first season.The Toronto Arenas won the Stanley Cup in the first postseason in league history in 1918 and St. Louis won two rounds to win the all-expansion West Division in 1968.The Sharks had numerous opportunities all night but were thwarted by a couple of shots that hit the iron, some acrobatic saves from Fleury and other chances that trickled just wide. This marked the fourth straight postseason for the Sharks that ended with a loss on home ice.”It’s very disappointing Jared Goff Jersey Elite , you get this far and lose, it’s disappointing,” Sharks forward Logan Couture said. ””It’s extra disappointing when you don’t play the way that you know that you’re capable of. … That’s something that’s very difficult to take.”The Golden Knights took control of this game with some good fortune in the second period. It started when usually reliable Marc-Edouard Vlasic turned the puck over in his own zone. Reilly Smith took control near the blue line and found Marchessault alone in front for a goal that trickled between Martin Jones‘ pads.The Golden Knights then added to the lead after an icing by Brent Burns led to an offensive zone faceoff. David Perron beat Tierney on the draw and Schmidt took a shot that appeared to deflect off the post and out.Play went on for 25 more seconds before the buzzer rang, with the situation room in Toronto calling for a video review. That quickly showed that the puck bounced off the post, off a piece equipment inside the net and out.Vegas then had a delayed celebration for the goal that made it 2-0.”I had no idea,” Schmidt said. ”I’d never seen something like that happen where they blew the play dead, but when I was skating back to the bench and all the guys were yelling, `It’s in.”’That was the type of bounce the Sharks didn’t get early in the game when they hit the post or crossbar three times in the opening period and then again in the third when they tried to cut into Vegas’ lead.They also had several other chances that either Fleury turned aside with acrobatic saves, trickled just wide or they were unable to get a clean shot, like a rebound Couture whiffed on from the slot in the first period with an open net.”It’s a fine line,” coach Peter DeBoer said. ”I think we had a couple of those that didn’t go in. That’s hockey. But Vegas deserves to be moving on. They played great. They finished the chances when they needed to and got saves when they needed to.”NOTES: Jones made 30 saves. … Vegas F William Carrier was scratched with a lower-body injury and replaced by Ryan Reaves, who played his first game this postseason.— WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Edmonton coach Todd McLennan made no apology for his bias toward Oilers star Connor McDavid.McLennan only had to watch McDavid score twice and add two assists as the Oilers overcame a three-goal deficit to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 Tuesday night on Darnell Nurse’s goal 1:25 into overtime.“He’s our captain. He’s our leader Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey ,” McLellan said of McDavid. “He’s, in my opinion, the best player on earth right now and he decided that he was going to will his team to a win.”McDavid set an NHL record by scoring or assisting on his team’s first nine goals to start a season, breaking Adam Oates’ record of seven with Detroit in 1986-87. McDavid has four goals and five assists in four games.“You know what? It’s whatever. I’m not overly proud of it,” McDavid said about the record. “I don’t think it’s a stat we should be proud of, either.“It is what it is, but we found a way to get a goal there at the end so we don’t ever have to talk about it again.”Ty Rattie ignited the comeback when he scored 18 seconds into the third period. McDavid got his second power-play goal of the game at 2:28 to trim Winnipeg’s lead to 4-3.Jesse Puljujarvi tied it at 13:39 when a shot by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins hit the Finnish forward’s stick and went past goalie Connor Hellebuyck. Nugent-Hopkins and Leon Draisaitl each had two assists.Jets forward Adam Lowry had two goals during a three-minute span in the first period. Mark Scheifele and defenseman Ben Chiarot also scored.“I just think we shot ourselves in the foot,” Lowry said. “We started to make plays at the blue line and fed into their transition game. We were on our heels in the third.“Credit to them, they didn’t quit. They have a dynamic top line and it showed tonight.”Nurse scored the winner unassisted when he got around Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers and beat Hellebuyck.“Going into the third we could have gone two different ways, and 18 seconds in his line makes a huge play,” Nurse said about McDavid.“When you have a leader like that, everyone feeds off that. For him to be able to set the tone every single game, it’s incredible.”Hellebuyck made 30 saves for the Jets (3-2-1).Cam Talbot http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/jared-goff-jersey , playing his 200th game with the Oilers (2-2-0), stopped 29 shots.Winnipeg opened a 3-1 lead in the first period.Lowry got his first goal when he wasn’t challenged in front and sent the puck past Talbot at 4:51. Lowry then got his own rebound and his shot went under a sprawling Talbot at 7:47 to make it 2-0.McDavid connected on the power play when he cut smoothly to the front of the net and flipped a backhand past Hellebuyck at 12:49.But only 22 seconds later, Chiarot restored his team’s two-goal lead on a point shot with Patrik Laine providing the screen in front.Continuing a power play to start the second, Scheifele fired in his goal off the rebound of Laine’s one-timer to make it 4-1 at 1:02.“Yeah, 4-1 should be game over,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. “Our line went out, gave up one early on and gave them momentum. You’re fighting an uphill battle from there.”Winnipeg played without injured defenseman Dustin Byfuglien (lower body) for the second straight game.UP NEXTOilers: Play their home opener Thursday against Boston to begin a four-game homestand.Jets: Continue a six-game homestand, their longest of the season, Thursday against Vancouver.
