The Penguins decided they had different needs at the deadline, and traded Reaves and a fourth to Vegas for Derick Brassard - who had just been acquired from the Ottawa Senators - in a three team deal.

"Vegas deserves to be moving on". I have been saying for a while that if the Rangers had 18 skaters who played like Jesper Fast, they'd be in a much better position as a franchise.

The Knights have had a number of hurdles to overcome during the first season but have done extremely well as the team have bonded well and responded well to setback. Chalk it up to some combination of broken spirits, fresher legs, or frustration against a hot hand in net, but San Jose's season ended with a whimper.

"I believe our game's there and I think everyone in here would tell you that", captain Joe Pavelski said.

Newcomers including Timo Meier, Kevin Labanc, Marcus Sorensen, Joakim Ryan and Tim Heed were folded into the lineup and younger players Tomas Hertl, Joonas Donskoi, Chris Tierney, Melker Karlsson, Barclay Goodrow and Dylan DeMelo were challenged in training camp to take their games to another level.

For the series, the Golden Knights scored the first goal in four of six games.

The rankings are based on the school's performance on state assessments and how well they prepare students for college. Roosevelt Rd.in Forest Park, was ranked among the top 10 public high schools in IL this year, according to U.S.

Throughout the series, the Sharks top line failed to produce the way it had down the stretch. "They finished with more points than we did".

San Jose had an 11-1 edge in shots on goal in the period at that point as the Sharks were controlling the play. "There was a confidence about them". So while they won the Stanley Cup that year by beating the PCHA's Vancouver Millionaires, they didn't face as many hurdles as the Golden Knights did. The only game they didn't get a goal in was a shutout. "These guys jumped in, filled roles, didn't complain, battled their (expletive) off right to the buzzer in every single game".

San Jose also ran smack into a hot goalie. But it did not come without a little help from the goal posts which prevented the Sharks from scoring on multiple occasions.

Vegas Golden Knights won the series to advance to the next round. "When you're chasing the game against anybody when you get to the final eight, (it's tough)".

Fleury has been a big part of that, capped by his fourth career series-clinching shutout, one shy of Chris Osgood's National Hockey League record.

Jones gave up a few marshmallows - Marchessault's shot through the five hole in Game 6, Erik Haula's sharp-angle goal in Game 5 - but the numbers don't paint a complete picture of what happened in goal during the series. "He had a couple of great games for us". He was stripped of the puck by Reilly Smith, who fed a pass in front to an open Marchessault. The puck hit the camera in the net and upon review was ruled a goal, giving Vegas a 2-0 lead headed into the third period.
