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. Bars and sports lounges across the city have also made it a must to tune into Knights games as they know they have a strong fan following in the city.

He stopped 200 of San Jose's 214 shots (.935 save percentage) and pitched shutouts in the series opener and closer. If the Rangers can play like Vegas by not taking shifts off and doing whatever it takes to win games, this rebuild might be quicker than expected.

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. After hitting the cross-bar on a first period breakaway, what else did he and his Sharks' teammates need to do in Game 6 to catch a break and get a puck past goalie Marc-Andre Fleury?

Vegas faces the Nashville Predators or Winnipeg Jets in the Western Conference finals. May 16 and Game 4 at 5 p.m. The Capitals lead the Penguins 3-2 and can book their spot in the Conference final on Monday.

Against a desperate Sharks team, Vegas played smart protecting the puck and maintaining possession all game.

Game 4 is set for 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET in Las Vegas on Friday, May 18. It felt like throughout the series, they went up 1-0, 2-0 nearly every game.

Game 7, if necessary, will be played in either Nashville or Winnipeg on Thursday, May 24.

"I thought we were the hardest-working team in the league coming into the series, (but) that team works every single night for Gerard (Gallant) and his staff", the San Jose head coach said of Vegas and its head coach. "We had great chemistry right from the start". "They finished with more points than we did". They've defied expectations over and over again during their inaugural season, and that now includes reaching the third round without even facing elimination yet.

The Knights had success against the Jets and Predators, going 2-1 against each team.

"Despite the adversity, the injuries and Jumbo (Thornton) being out, this group really felt we could keep winning and moving on", said DeBoer, whose team swept Anaheim in the first round. Chris Tierney took his place on the top line with Barclay Goodrow slotting in on the third line.

"It doesn't matter a whole lot", he said. And Reaves, who skates well enough and plays well enough not to be a awful liability, will fill that bill. The only game they didn't get a goal in was a shutout.

In Tampa, Florida, J.T. Miller scored the go-ahead goal on the power play and the Tampa Bay Lightning punched their ticket to the Eastern Conference final with a 3-1 victory over Boston.
