An Inside Look at Capturing the Vegas Golden Knights' Expansion Season

DFS NHL Series Preview: VGK-WPG 3 goal first period propels Winnipeg Jets past Vegas Golden Knights in conference final opener
Eugene Bates | 12 May, 2018, 20:41

The Jets have exceeded every expectation placed on them this season and then some. They won 51 of 82 regular season games to capture the Pacific Division title and, starting Saturday night, will battle the Winnipeg Jets in the Western Conference final.

Next up for Fleury and Vegas will be the Western Conference Final against either Winnipeg or Nashville. Most in the hockey world think the Jets will win the series.

Once the postseason rolled around, the anticipation surrounding the Jets was palpable.

The under is 7-1 in the last seven Jets home games.

These bunch of castoffs have their sights firmly on Lord Stanley's mug as they head into their third round of the playoffs. But there was no intention of stopping there. "They're very passionate about our team and about hockey".

The Vegas Golden Knights, on the other hand, really need no introduction. They set the NHL regular season mark for the most home (29), road (22), and total (51) wins, and finished with more points than any new team in league history (109). That's what everyone predicted at the beginning of the season right? Scheifele leads all players still in the playoffs in both goals and points and with Paul Stastny proving every bit worth what the Jets gave up for him at the trade deadline, they have a very risky 1-2 punch. Now, he and the team are laughing at all of us. This is a fluke, there's no way they'll keep this up. Vegas started winning and it just never stopped. The P.E.I. native has gotten the most out of a group that was beset by injuries (using four goalies in a seven-game stretch) and lacks a true superstar.

"They play a simple game, as quickly as they can, and they have the skill level to do it".

Rinne took responsibility after the game, telling reporters that, "It's the most important game of the season and I let the whole team down". Wrong. How about Florida's GM completely underestimated his own roster and actively gave up two good young players for nothing. It was impressive watching the Knights beat the Sharks with their relentless work ethic in the series-clinching win. "It's not a Cinderella (story)".

The Golden Knights have indeed lost just once in five tries away from Vegas. The point of being underdogs had long since past; they were and still are bonafide Stanley Cup Contenders, but still there were doubts.

"Critics that want to criticize him don't know what they're talking about, I don't care if they played in the National Hockey League or not", Subban said, according to Brady Trettenero of the Nation Network. The Westgate SuperBook now has their odds at 3/1 behind the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are at 7/4.

"The next expansion team's got a tough act to follow", Maurice quipped. No side has any significant advantage over the other, but the advantages are there.

The staff at Brooksy's which is attached to the ice rink at the Las Vegas ice center, says they're already getting ready for Saturday's game. You feel good, first shot of the game, you make a good save on the wraparound.

Expect the best series we have seen in these playoffs, but unfortunately one of these awesome stories ends here. Then they've had to wait another seven years for Jets 2.0 to be sculpted into a championship-calibre outfit.

Winnipeg Jets fans are salivating over the chance to take home the Stanley Cup for the first time ever.

His playoff excellence comes on the heels of an outstanding season that saw the 24-year-old MI native become a finalist for the Vezina Trophy and set a record for USA -born goalies by winning 44 regular-season games.
