San Jose Sharks Outplayed by Vegas in Second Round Exit

The team is now 8-2 in the playoffs as they swept the LA Kings in round one and won in six games against the San Jose Sharks in round two.

Instead, they hit two cross bars and saw other pucks drift just wide of the net.

Vegas advanced to the finals with a 4-2 series win against San Jose in the second round. Depending on who wins, that game will be either in Nashville or Winnipeg. There are thousands of fans who walk around with Golden Knights jerseys and helmets in support of their team.

All three members of the Golden Knights first line had seven or more points in six games during this series: Jon Marchessault (8), Reilly Smith (7) and William Karlsson (7) for a total of 22 points. The Jets lead that series 3-2 heading into game six on Monday.

Jones fell back to earth in the second round against the Vegas Golden Knights, finishing the series with a.895 percentage despite posting a 34-save shutout in Game 4. Game 5 would be at noon May 20 at Nashville or Winnipeg. Game 6 would be back in Las Vegas at 6 p.m.

Jones gave up a few marshmallows - Marchessault's shot through the five hole in Game 6, Erik Haula's sharp-angle goal in Game 5 - but the numbers don't paint a complete picture of what happened in goal during the series.

The legendary investor also threw shade on day traders, who he said totally miss the point of investing in a company like Apple . But I know I don't have to do a thing and probably in a couple of years, we'll own 6 percent without laying out another dollar.

Over the last few months, Manziel has also been upfront about his failure as an National Football League quarterback. He went on to give his gratitude to hospital staff for "all that they've done in the last 24 hours".

Green said over the past two days he consistently reminded Durant that he was brought here to be himself. It has since been deleted. "The guy has a triple-double nearly every night against us", Gentry said.

This trend played a particularly-meaningful role in Game 6 as the Sharks failed to capitalize on several grade-A scoring chances in the first, allowing the Knights to regroup at intermission and draw first blood on Marchessault's opening tally at 6:33 of the second.

"We deserve to be here", coach Gerard Gallant said. "I'm proud to be where we are right now". Once we know who we're playing, we'll shift our attention to that team.

Brayden Point, with his fourth of the post-season, and Anton Stralman also scored for the Lightning while goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves. That 1917-18 Toronto Arenas team, a predecessor to today's Maple Leafs, was really only an expansion team in name.

The Knights had success against the Jets and Predators, going 2-1 against each team. Chris Tierney took his place on the top line with Barclay Goodrow slotting in on the third line. While Fleury gave up more goals in this series than he did in the four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Kings, he was still incredible.

"It doesn't matter a whole lot", he said. "We're a good team, we play hard and we played well all season long". He's giving away, see what we did there, two tickets to every Western Conference Finals game, and it's free to enter.

The Eastern Conference finals between Washington and Tampa Bay begins Friday in Tampa, Florida.
