The Vegas Golden Knights kicked off the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against their Pacific division rivals, the San Jose Sharks.
The Knights were 3-1 against the Sharks during the regular season. However, each game was extremely close having been decided within two points.
Last night’s game was a different story.
The Golden Knights continued the exceptional gameplay that led them to sweep the LA Kings in the first round.
In the first period, the Knights scored the first goal 4:31 into the game. Not even a minute later, the Knights found the back of the net giving them a 2-0 later in the first five minutes of the game. After another minute, at the 6:02 mark, the Knights scored another goal.
As remarkable as the first period was, the Knights continued with their intensity as Alex Tuch sped past two Sharks defenders and scored the 4th goal of the first period for the Knights.
The Golden Knights entered the second period with a 4-0 lead. Not long into the second, the Knights scored their fifth goal of the game, while the Sharks were held scoreless throughout two periods.
The third period was more of the same story, with the Knights controlling the gameplay that frustrated the Sharks and it showed.
During the third period, the Sharks were showing their temper and frustration when a Sharks player cross-checked Bellemare in the face that led to a five-minute major penalty and an ejection.
During the power play, the Knights made them pay with a sixth goal during the man advantage.
With a 6-0 lead, you would think the Knights would let up. They didn’t.
The Knights had another man advantage and the Knights used the opportunity to score the seventh goal of the game, while the Sharks were still scoreless.
