After jumping out to a 3-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal playoff series against Vancouver, the Vegas Golden Knights have now been pushed to a game seven. Vancouver blanked the Knights 4-0 on Thursday night to tie the series at three games apiece. Vegas once again couldn’t solve Vancouver’s rookie back up goalie Thatcher Demko, who finished with 48 saves. This after making 42 saves in game five. That makes 91 shots on goal in two games for the Knights with only one goal to show for it. Vancouver took 23 shots last night to get their three goals plus an empty net goal late in the game. The Knights don’t get any time to lick their wounds as game seven is tonight (Friday) in the NHL playoff bubble in Edmonton. Ironically, Vegas blew a 3-1 series lead last season against coach Peter DeBoer’s old team, San Jose. To a man, the Knights say they are glad they’re going to play game seven tonight rather than having to wait a day or two. Game time tonight is 6pm and will be televised on NBCSN. We hope we’ll be reporting good news tomorrow!
