Fleury dominant in first Golden Knights playoff win in franchise history

Fleury dominant in first Golden Knights playoff win in franchise history

The first period of Game 2 would best be summed up by saying that both teams played well despite stoppages due to clock problems.

The Vegas Golden Knights have an enviable record: the only National Hockey League team to have never lost in the postseason. Golden Knights 2, Kings 1, 2 OT. "I don't think the pace will be quite the same as it was because guys are pretty exhausted and beat up from five periods of hockey tonight".

"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. Doughty played a game-high 28:02 and recorded a game-high six blocked shots, but the Kings couldn't reciprocate anything in the offensive zone, leading to a 30-save shutout for Marc-Andre Fleury.

Travis Konecny, Sean Couturier, Shayne Gostisbehere, Nolan Patrick and Andrew MacDonald each scored one goal and Philadelphia defeated Pittsburgh to even the best-of-seven playoff series at one game apiece at PPG Paints Arena.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Erik Haula's goal in double overtime gave the Vegas Golden Knights a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night for a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. I knew he was going to make that play.

"I just want to thank Haula for doing what he did, so we can get out of here, get home, get some sleep and get ready for game three", he said laughing. We got a lot of good talent, a lot of good players and we earned a lot of these wins this year. The 2012 Conn Smythe victor stopped 54 of 56 (!) Golden Knights shots. Fleury, who won the gold medal for Canada at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, will be trying to win his third consecutive Stanley Cup in one of the most unlikeliest of places as the Golden Knights are an expansion franchise. However, he fought back eventually, nailing Golden Knights forward William Carrier in the head. "Now we've got to go home to take care of business at home".

The first overtime game in the history of the Golden Knights was the longest in the history of the Kings; it was 40 seconds longer than their championship-clinching win against the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.

Theodore got on the board 3:23 into the first.

Vegas' 1-0 win was reflective off the work on the ice.

Los Angeles has won 10 of the last 12 playoff series it has played, but it has lost 21 of the last 29 series in which it has lost Game 1.
