When he went down to the U.S. Saturday morning, he was accompanied by his father, Don Smith, and step-mother, Alana Brownlee, who will also be watching Game 3 live with him. Same players. Same line combinations.

The Jets, who led 1-0 before falling behind 2-1 in the third, got goals from Mark Scheifele, Patrik Laine, and Joe Morrow.

With the Golden Knights now two games into their first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings in the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup playoffs, head coach Gerard (Turk) Gallant says it's business as usual for the expansion franchise.

It was as dominant of a game as any Winnipeg Jets fan could dream of. A lot of their young players had huge games (Ivan Provorov had two points; Nolan Patrick and Travis Konecny both scored goals). "Obviously, you never want to get down to a 3-0 hole". The Golden Knights have their work cut out for them tonight, as the Kings try to avoid going home down 2-0.Vegas jumps ahead of LA in first period with PP goalThe Los Angeles Kings hadn't given up a power play goal to the Golden Knights all year... "That is key for me and allows me to stay calm and confident as well".

But early on it still looked like he was off of his game.

Minnesota actually recorded the game's first five shots on goal - due in a large part to a rather interesting Tyler Myers tripping penalty just four minutes into the contest. At that point it seemed like it was only a matter of time until he let one in and the dam would once again burst.

Minnesota will be going with the same lineup it used in its Game 1 loss, when it got goals from Matt Cullen and Zach Parise. Lightning RW Ryan Callahan left the game late in the second period with an upper body injury and did not return. Instead, Elliott calmly snagged Crosby's backhand out of the air and kept the Penguins off the board. "(The Jets) are playing really well and we're going to have to play much better". Like other sports, you have to win one in the other team's building.

Do you know how dedicated your fanbase has to be to make the crowd look like that?

"We did a great job in the third period". Minnesota's game one hero, netminder Devan Dubnyk, seemingly picked up where he left off on Wednesday, stopping all 13 pucks he faced in the first period. And that led to the Flyers' first goal of the playoffs - a deep shot from Shayne Gostisbehere. So, I mean, when things don't go well, they're not happy. I told the guys here I think home playoff games are fun, but I think road playoff games are way better, especially when you're facing a crowd like that.

"It would be disappointing if we can't go, but it is what it is".

Game 2, played Friday night at Bell MTS Place, was just as loud, just as much a "whiteout", but far more hockey, much of it spectacular.
