Sharks score late to send Game 3 to overtime

Logan Couture plays OT hero as Sharks end Golden Knights' playoff streak

"We were down by two, but our game was good", DeBoer said.

The San Jose Sharks will look to take a 2-1 lead over the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday when they host them as home favorites at the sportsbooks for Game 3 of their Western Conference second-round National Hockey League playoff series.

For the second time in as many games, the Sharks and Golden Knights went to a sudden-death overtime.

The first round of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs are now complete, and eight teams remain: the Nashville Predators, Winnipeg Jets, Vegas Golden Knights, San Jose Sharks, Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins.

Sharks: There wasn't much Martin Jones could have done on either of Vegas' power play goals in the second period, but he allowed at least three goals for the third consecutive game. Marchessault, however, clipped Martin Jones' goalie stick as he made his way to the slot, causing the goal to be overturned by the NHL's Situation Room. His best was in overtime as he robbed Logan Couture with a glove save on a point-blank shot at 3:10. Fleury, unfazed by what he had just done, was seen smiling behind his mask.

The play came in the third period of a series opener that San Jose lost 7-0 to the Golden Knights.

The Sharks responded strongly Saturday after having been flattened on Thursday.

Peter King, R-N.Y., was more critical. "It is such an unprecedented action to be to only be taken for very, very serious issues". Senate in 1789 was to select the Right Reverend Samuel Provoost , Episcopal Bishop of NY to serve as the first Senate Chaplain.

The goal re-energized the sold-out crowd inside the SAP Center in a game the Sharks would come back to tie before losing 4-3 in overtime. James Neal found Miller backdoor and the game was tied 1-1.

It was a remarkable comeback considering how opportunistic the Golden Knights were in the second period to build a 3-1 lead. Again, a defensive mistake was costly for the Sharks. But that quickly turned as James Neal held the puck below the goal line and fed Miller with a pass that Marc-Edouard Vlasic almost broke up for a tap-in that tied the game. The Sharks were making a strong push to take the lead and had several great chances.

The Sharks feel they've been creating more quality scoring chances against Fleury as their second round series has gone on.

The teams were skating four-on-four following a tussle between Marchessault and Vlasic when the Sharks pulled even.

Burns figured in the action prominently and walked in from the right point, skated behind the net and wrapped the puck inside the left post for a 3-2 San Jose lead at 14:07 of the second period.

Escaping the first 20 minutes with a scoreless tie is a minor victory for the Golden Knights after Marc-Andre Fleury was forced to make 17 shots and do everything but stand on his head to keep the puck out of his net. During the regular season, he was 30-28 with a 2.55 GAA and a.915 save percentage overall, including 19-12 with a 2.39 GAA and a.915 save percentage here at home, plus he was 1-2 with a 3.32 GAA and a.899 against the Golden Knights.
