  • Vegas steals home-ice back with OT win over Sharks in Game 3

Vegas entered a crazed SAP Center in San Jose Monday night and emerged with a 4-3 overtime win to take a 2-1 lead over the Sharks in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Hertl then tied the game with 1:57 left in regulation time on a goal-mouth scramble, firing the puck past Fleury from just outside the crease after Justin Braun pushed it toward the net. It was the second straight series the Golden Knights went into double overtime in Game 2, with their opponent missing a key player due to suspension.

Reilly Smith notched one goal and one assist in Monday's 4-3 OT win over San Jose in Game 3. San Jose outshot its newest rival 16-8 in the second, but failed to score a five-on-five goal for the 10th consecutive period.

Kane was fined $28,225 and suspended one game by the Buffalo Sabres in 2016, and was suspended two games during his stint with the Winnipeg Jets in 2014 for boarding Anaheim Ducks defender Clayton Stoner.

You need three things to win in the National Hockey League playoffs: 5-on-5 scoring, a strong penalty kill, and a goalie who can steal you a game.

Fleury cracked and finally let up some five-on-five goals, but the 33-year-old netminder was otherwise stellar.

Because of the amount of high-ranked teams entering the second round, fans can expect to see many series' going into game sixes and game sevens.

The over is 6-0-3 in the last nine Sharks conference semifinals games.

"Felt good. Obviously the team played a lot better than Game 1", Goodrow said before the game.

But when it comes to overtime in the National Hockey League playoffs, there's really no such thing as momentum - especially when Fleury is in net and William Karlsson is flying the other way on an odd-man rush (where the Sharks have the advantage). He robbed Couture in the slot with a stellar glove stop, and allowed his team to take the game's last lead.

Vegas entered the third period with a 3-1 lead but the Sharks rallied to tie the game 3-3 and force sudden death overtime. He was solid five-on-five, though, stopping all but two of the Golden Knights' 24 shots when both teams were at full strength.

It was a remarkable comeback considering how opportunistic the Golden Knights were in the second period to build a 3-1 lead. Hertl attempted a stuff shot in close, was denied but stayed planted in front of the net. After winning their first series in franchise history, Winnipeg is looking to lock in their second franchise series win if Nashville doesn't put up more of an offensive fight throughout the rest of the series.

Golden Knights: Nobody was hurt, but Vegas made one lineup change, scratching ex-Sharks forward Ryan Carpenter in favor of trade deadline acquisition Tomas Tatar.

"It's a great home crowd", Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. "A win is a win and I'll try my best to get my team a win".

At the 3:25 mark of the third period Kane cross-checked Bellemare twice after the whistle.
