Karlsson's OT rocket seals Knights' Game 3 victory over Sharks

SPORTSCross-check earns Sharks' Evander Kane 1-game suspensionSHARE:sharetweetshareemail

No, the return of a less-than-repentant Evander Kane to the Sharks lineup wasn't enough to spark his team to victory Monday night in Game 3 of their second-round playoff series against the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Vegas Golden Knights are taking on the San Jose Sharks in game two of the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The 33-year-old veteran goaltender again showed why he is a three-time Stanley Cup victor.

The shot had to be ideal, and it was, beating Sharks goalie Martin Jones on his far side as it nestled nicely into the top corner before hitting the ice behind the goal line.

More than seven minutes into the third period and with the Sharks trailing 3-1, defenseman Brent Burns sent a backhand pass from the blue line to Kane in the right faceoff circle. The game was over from the start as Boston never stopped putting shots on net, ending game one with a favored score of 6-2. His best was in overtime as he robbed Logan Couture with a glove save on a point-blank shot at 3:10.

The Sharks took advantage of a penalty on David Perron to cut Vegas' lead to 2-1. "No matter how many times you hear a ref say 'We're not looking for the first one, we're looking for the second one, ' those are the easy ones to call and if we make sure we continue to be composed in those situations, that's going to be really important for us to get the power plays and get the momentum on our side". "This is a tough building to play in".

"We think we're a pretty good club but we'll keep trying to do what we do and see where it takes us", McPhee said.

"To come out of that first period 0-0, we need to find a way to get the lead", coach Peter DeBoer said.




"That's stuff that doesn't belong in hockey", Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault said. He was unbelievable with that save in overtime.

"You live it over a few times in your mind when you're laying in bed, especially after a loss", Couture said Tuesday. "We're going to enjoy this and move on".

"He kept us in it during the first period". "We like them a lot". Fluery faced 16 shots in each of the first and second periods and finished the game with 39 saves.

Sharks: Joonas Donskoi (lower-body) missed his first game of the postseason.

The Sharks scored two of their four Game 2 goals on seven power-play opportunities, including the game-winner just over five minutes into the second extra session.

It was back-and-forth play for the remainder of the first period, but San Jose quickly re-established control of the game early in the second period after receiving back-to-back power plays.

Evander Kane had a flawless shot in the third period, beating a partially screened Fleury with a wrist shot that got past his left shoulder and just underneath the crossbar. But after the National Hockey League reviewed it, the goal stood and the Knights would need Fleury more than ever.
