The Golden Knights, who won the season series against the Jets this year with two wins in three games, have had their skates up for the better part of a week after eliminating the San Jose Sharks in six games.

They said that I'm a traitor", she says. "It's not a Cinderella (story)".

Marc-Andre Fleury (.932 save percentage and 2.10 goals against average) has been the primary option in goal for Vegas.

"There's a different kind of speed and different kind of transition in this series and it doesn't lend itself to the play as often along the walls", Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice said. So to come here, he's taken our team, I think you've seen what he's done. Winnipeg's top line of Kyle Connor, Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler scored a combined 208 points in the regular season.
