Mitch Moss On Golden Knights' Playoff Chances

It's status quo for the Vegas Golden Knights in the post-season. Updates with new lead, quotes.

The Los Angeles Kings and Vegas Golden Knights meet Friday in game two of the NHL Western Conference First Round Playoffs at the T-Mobile Arena.

The corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue is dominated by the Statue of Liberty, her incongruous existence in the Sonoran Desert made only slightly less surreal by the Empire State and Chrysler buildings behind her, part of the spectacularly kitschy New York-New York Hotel and Casino. Golden Knights 2, Kings 1, 2 OT.

Vegas' chances of winning Game 2 went up a fair amount when the National Hockey League announced that Kings No. 1 defenseman Drew Doughty was suspended for Friday's matchup because of his illegal check of Knights forward William Carrier in Game 1.

"Honestly, I think that's my first overtime goal and I'm happy it came at this time; that's one of the best feelings in sports", Haula said.

He said he was authorized to share the information with reporters and had not intentionally misled anyone. Trump's pick to replace Comey, Christopher Wray, was sworn in the same day.

"Obviously, he had the composure to hold the puck".

"We just kept playing the same way and that's what we've been talking about it", Haula said.

Game 3 in the best-of-seven series is Sunday night in Los Angeles.

Marc-Andre Fleury had 29 saves and Alex Tuch scored his first career playoff goal for Vegas.

The Golden Knights finished with a whopping 56-30 edge in shots. But even then, Doughty will have to miss one game due to a suspension for the infraction. "It was long, it was hard".

"We feel real good", said Gallant, a strong supporter of the Summerside Boys and Girls Club.

"Haula's a great skater".

"It's exhausting", Golden Knights forward James Neal said. "Shea Theodore can skate all day long, and when those guys are moving their feet like that it makes a big advantage for us". "I've been on both ends so it's tough to lose them and it's great to win them".

The Vegas Golden Knights have a chance to take a nice 2-0 series lead and inch themselves closer to the semifinals. The most-surprising storyline of the 2017-18 season was the success of the Las Vegas Golden Knights. It is also clear that Carrier did not see Doughty moving in for the hit. There's a lot to unpack going in, so draw your own conclusions on whether you like or dislike the six teams playing tonight.Who's going to win?We don't know! "They won their two home games so we have to go home and get to work". William Karlsson leads Vegas with 43 goals, David Perron has 50 assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 268 shots on goal.

That power play was like a rescue mission for the Kings, who tied it 1-1 with the man-advantage at 15:55 when defenceman Paul Ladue's long-range shot caromed off the trousers of defenceman Deryk Engelland and past Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. "He hits this guy, hits his shoulder first and this guy goes off", Cherry said as a replay of the hit was shown. Rock star Vince Neil got the crowd roaring to start the third period by winding up the air raid siren.
