LAS VEGAS – The Vegas Golden Knights appear to be playing on a racetrack these days, while the Winnipeg Jets seem to be stuck at times rolling through a school zone.
Speed was definitely the difference Wednesday night, as the surprising expansion team from Sin City wheeled and dealed their way to a 4-2 victory that puts them in the driver's seat in the Western Conference final.
Vegas now leads the best-of-seven series 2-1.
“We just didn’t have it off the start. You get behind, it’s tough," a frustrated Jets captain Blake Wheeler said following the game. "You put yourself in a tough position when you’re down by a couple goals on the road, tough environment against a good team. So the onus is on us to get off to a better start.”
