Vegas fans responded accordingly, viciously waving their rally towels in the air. I'm once again backing the Golden Knights. Wheeler helped set up both of Mark Scheifele's tallies in the second and third periods.
Jets starter Connor Hellebuyck turned away 27-of 30 shots in the loss, but his mistake in the second period cost Winnipeg momentum after Scheifele's goal.
After the game was tied 1-1, Vegas got two goals from its second line, which features Erik Haula between Neal and Alex Tuch. -Shea TheodoreIt's important to stay the course no matter what, that's how we got here. "It kinda sucked the life out of them and gave us energy". Not only did they come straight out of the gate with a goal just 35 seconds in scored by Jonathan Marchessault, but they had an eccentric opening that screamed typical Las Vegas. He leads Vegas with 17 points (eight goals, nine assists) in the postseason, and needs two goals to tie the National Hockey League record for the most by a player in his club's first postseason appearance. Those tallies have come on just 17 shots, for a sky-high shooting percentage of 65.
NOTES: The Jets had scored a power-play goal in 11 of the 13 playoff games, but was 0 for 2 with a man advantage in this one. The Jets sensed vulnerability as well.
Honestly, it was everything we have come to expect from what Fleury is as a goalie, as a player, and heck, even as a person.
Midway through the period, Scheifele had two chances at a hat trick but more importantly, two chances at a tie game.

In an interview with Cineuropa , the Danish director said he was pleased by the reaction and it made him "very relaxed". There's Something About Mary and The Outsiders actor Matt Dillon stars as the serial killer Jack.
Fleury made 15 saves during a third period that was dominated by the Jets.
"I was a little late on the pass, I was focused on the shooter", Fleury told Boucher.
"It's insane. I just saw it on the replay". "I tried to do that".
The Jets' charged on, making the rink look more tilted than the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
With Winnipeg pressing for a tying goal, Fleury stretched with his right leg to somehow get a toe on Scheifele's one-timer from the slot.
"Flower was unbelievable for us", Neal said to Boucher. Guys are still giving each other crap before games, it's the same banter as usual, and it's helping our guys calm down before games. While ticket prices for Friday's Game 4 spiked as high as $5,000 on Monday, they ranged between $259 and $2,500 as the puck dropped for Game 3.
Bellamy backs Liverpool to challenge Man City - if they sign two players
And they now face a mouth-watering showdown with Real Madrid in Kiev on May 26 for a chance at lifting the trophy. It is, however, something Wijnaldum believes the squad can cope with.
Vegas is 10-3 in its first stab at the playoffs and a step closer to reaching the Stanley Cup final, which seemed like folly when a patchwork team of castoffs was put together to surround Marc-André Fleury last summer.
Scheifele's goal 18 seconds into the third period. His line threatened to score on more shifts than not.
After his assertive Game 2 performance, he noted how none of the Golden Knights were considered to be "the center of our (old) teams". Given that he is already 11th on the NHL's all-time wins list, already has his name on the Stanley Cup three times, and secured one of those championships with buzzer-beating save on one of the greatest players of all-time (Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom) that is not exactly a small accomplishment.
Scheifele is correct, with history against the Jets, who are trailing in a series for the first time this postseason. A Tampa Bay win in Thursday's Game 4 reclaims home-ice advantage for the Lightning and puts Jon Cooper in the driver's seat to get back to the Final, where his team lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in 2015.
