Vegas Doubles Winnipeg 4-2

James Neal's goal and assist paced the Vegas Golden Knights to a 4-2 playoff win over the Winnipeg Jets.

The Golden Knights lead the Western Conference final two games to one with Game 4 back at T-Mobile Arena tomorrow night.

The winner of the series advances to the Stanley Cup Final to face the winner of the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning.  The Caps led that series 2-1.

Neal briefly left the game and headed to the dressing room after a hard hit from Dustin Byfuglien in the opening period, but he scored and set up the eventual winning goal in the second.

Jonathan Marchessault scored twice, including an empty-netter, for Las Vegas with Alex Tuch also contributing a goal to the victory.

Mark Scheifele scored his NHL-leading 13th and 14th playoff goals for Winnipeg, but the Jets suffered a second loss in a row for the first time in this post-season after falling 3-1 at home Monday in Game 2.
