Handicapper likes Golden Knights over Jets in Game 4

Golden Knights goalie Marc-André Fleury was still fresh off an eye-popping 33-save performance when he sat down with Carson, 12, and Jackson, 9, in a great moment captured by Kevaney Martin, a sports reporter with Las Vegas CBS affiliate 8NewsNow.

Like so many gamblers who have failed to crack the code at Las Vegas casinos, Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice has struggled to find the winning formula against the Golden Knights.

Neal returned to score a goal and set up another in the second period for the expansion Golden Knights.

"We were nine days away from our home opener and deep into planning how we were going to unveil this franchise when the tragedy happened", Brian Killingsworth, the team's chief marketing officer, told Reuters on Wednesday.

As we head into Game 4, there's a huge question to be answered.

"We had the responsibility to react and to do what sports does, which is to bring people together and help heal". "It's its own little story, and its own party. It's a community of hard-working people that really care and have a passion", he said.

I imagine the Golden Knights have changed some non-believers' minds as to how good they actually are. Is Las Vegas the right bet tonight in Game 4 to take a commanding lead in the series?

"We got time. We'll even it up on Friday, come back home and take the lead", said Cory Normand, also of Winnipeg. On the flip side, the Golden Knights are 5-1 at home in the postseason.

Ronnie Chubaty, his brother Brandon and Kim Carnahan arrived well ahead of Game 3 on Sunday and spent the time waiting for puck drop "drinking and sitting by the pool", among other entertainments, Ronny said.

"Right after the tragedy of October 1 the whole town was in a funk and needed something big to lift it out of that". The over is 3-0-1 in the last four Winnipeg games when its opponent allowed two or less goals in the previous game.

The grudges they once held against their former teams are gone.

"It has been wonderful to see this city come together around the team and to have something that was created by Vegas that is ours to claim", she said.

Scheifele's 14 goals in the playoffs are incredible, but asking one or two players to carry the load won't get it done.

"We've become a worldwide phenomenon", Killingsworth said.

"I did not to expect Vegas to get this far".

When a scuffle broke out near Fleury and the Knights' goal late in the second period, he saw an opportunity to tickle the ear of Jets winger Blake Wheeler and just went for it.

"They are inking their fandom permanently on their bodies, which is fantastic", he said.
