Sharks' Kane suspended 1 game for cross-check

Sharks' Kane suspended 1 game for cross-check

Here's Karlsson's winning goal as he put it in fifth gear and motored past the defense letting go his high drive past Jones to give the Golden Knights a 2-1 game lead going into Game 4 Wednesday night in the Shark tank. But an apparent miscommunication between Paul Martin and Brent Burns near the defensive blue line left Jones on an island and presented Vegas' leading scorer with what amounted to a penalty shot chance. Then David Perron drew a penalty on Brendan Dillon and Vegas took advantage.

So you'd think Peter DeBoer's squad might be a little ticked off to be cast in the role of the underdog against the expansion Vegas Golden Knights when they meet in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs starting Thursday night at T-Mobile Arena.

There is no doubt that Fleury has provided leadership and stability to the Golden Knights net in the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Still, even though Fleury made 17 saves in the first period, helping the Golden Knights to keep the game scoreless, the Sharks say they're not discouraged. With the Sharks swarming in front of Fleury, Hertl whacked at a loose puck and knocked it in for the equalizer with 1:57 to go, sending the towel-waving crowd into a frenzy. "Pavelski and Kane both bring their own specialties to the game".

But the 26-year-old left wing did make his presence felt - and that served as another reminder why the Sharks acquired him at the National Hockey League trade deadline in late February. They better be ready (for Game 3) because we didn't show up for 45 minutes tonight.

San Jose had an 11-1 edge in shots on goal in the period at that point as the Sharks were controlling the play. He is expected to replace Ryan Carpenter and play alongside David Perron and Cody Eakin on Vegas' third line after skating with that group during morning skate.

Karlsson had a goal and an assist to give him nine points (four goals, five assists) during a five-game point streak and teammate Reilly Smith, who had a goal and an assist in Game 3, has nine points (one goal, eight assists) during a six-game point streak.

Tomas Tatar - Returned to the Golden Knights lineup, replacing Ryan Carpenter, after spending some time as a healthy scratch.

"I think it's good for the morale", Karlsson said.

The San Jose Sharks had a great opening series against the Ducks, but then they were crushed in game one of this series by a score of 7-0. "We were harder on pucks, we won more battles". That got us going and we were able to get the goal to win it. "We're chasing the game the whole series here". "We haven't really looked at the season in its totality before it started, or the playoffs in its totality". Marchessault added two assists while Karlsson and Smith had one helper apiece.

Defensemen (6): Deryk Engelland, Brayden McNabb, Jon Merrill, Colin Miller, Nate Schmidt and Shea Theodore.
