Las Vegas Golden Knights vs. Los Angeles Kings 4/17/18, Prediction & Odds

  • The Vegas Golden Knights just swept a playoff series, as an expansion team

Marc-Andre Fleury made 31 saves for his 12th career playoff shutout as the Vegas Golden Knights became the first expansion team in the 100-year history of the National Hockey League to sweep a playoff series in its first season with a 1-0 victory over the host Los Angeles Kings Tuesday night at Staples Center.

On Tuesday night, the Golden Knights beat the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 to sweep the best-of-seven first-round series.

Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was a key player and is one to thank for their win.

The Knights poured into the net to hug Fleury at the final horn.

NFL Mock Draft: Josh Allen heads to Browns
The signing of Wesley Johnson was a depth move; I do not expect him to supplant either Glasgow at center or Joe Dahl at guard. He did earn a walk-on offer from San Diego State, but he ultimately turned that down after not being guaranteed playing time.

The second period saw the only goal of the game, as former King Brayden McNabb potted a goal 4:04 into the period.

There were very few who expected the Vegas Golden Knights to be where they are now.

NOTES: Fleury earned his 66th playoff victory, breaking a tie with Dominik Hasek for 11th on the NHL's all-time list among goaltenders. The most-watched game on NBCSN so far was played on Sunday night between Columbus and Washington, averaging a TAD of 792,000 viewers. "Now all of a sudden, we're moving on to the second round of the playoffs". The Kings left the defenseman exposed in last year's expansion draft and the Knights snapped him up.

When this most remarkable expansion team needed a third-period goal to accomplish another incredible feat, their dependable veteran forward skated in on Jonathan Quick and got it with a flick of his wrist.

Wade the catalyst as Heat beat 76ers
Embiid appears antsy to return to the floor , so don't be surprised to see him in Thursday's Game 3. Philadelphia lost Monday for the first time in Embiid's 10-game absence.

Vegas' offensive burst broke open a third straight game of tense, defense-dominated playoff hockey between a franchise that won two Cups with that attitude and another that didn't exist a year ago.

McNabb, who spent part of four seasons in the Kings' organization has just 12 goals in 314 career games, nearly half of which came this year with Vegas. And when combining his past 39 playoff games, Fleury has a.926 SP to go along with a 21-17 record. Pastrnak has nine points (three goals and six assists) after three games - the same total he had after the first two games of the series.

The players agree the key to tonight's game is not falling into the trap of playing a physical game with the Kings and staying out of the penalty box.

One of the ways we teed up the post-season here at THN was by taking a look at potential x-factors for every playoff team.

Avengers: Infinity War Casts Carrie Coon as Proxima Midnight
In the comics, the character is covered in a deadly toxin, thus making her quite hard to handle in hand-to-hand combat. And with less than two weeks before the movie debuts, we're still hearing about even more actors that are involved.

The Golden Knights will look to keep their magic going in the second round, where they'll likely face the San Jose Sharks (up 3-0 in their series against the Anaheim Ducks).
