Vegas Looks To Take A 3-1 Lead Tonight

The Vegas Golden Knights are in San Jose tonight, looking to take a 3-1 series lead over the Sharks.

After splitting the first two games in Las Vegas, the Golden Knights regained the series lead with a 4-3 win in overtime on Monday at SAP Center.

Sharks coach Peter DeBoer likes how the team has played — especially after a 7-0 loss last Thursday.

"I think we're getting better every game," he said Tuesday. "Game1, you throw it out, but I thought the last two games, we're starting to really play well. We're getting a feel for what we need to do."

Vegas is 5-for-18 with the man advantage in this series after going 1-for-12 in a four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Kings in the first round.

How would Sharks captain Joe Pavelski combat that special teams success?

"It's staying out of the box a little bit and the simple penalties — the pucks over the glass, too many men," he said. "I expect the guys will be ready. They'll be ready to try and even this series out and it's an important game for us, for sure."

Fleury also preached the need to remain calm. "It's about staying disciplined during the game and having a ful l60-minute effort so that we can play the way we want to play," he said.

Game 5 is scheduled for Friday night in Las Vegas.
