Jets' fairytale ending at odds with Golden Knights' storybook rise

WestJet Adding Flights Between Winnipeg and Las Vegas for NHL Playoffs

You just had to see it to believe it.

The 14-year veteran said the lack of discipline, and even his own mistakes, are nothing to dwell on if the Golden Knights want to steal back home-ice advantage.

Anger - This is ridiculous. In fact, they only have 11 goals on the road in five games.

Bargaining - Alright, so they are still leading the Pacific big deal.

As the league grew, the expansion draft rules were tweaked.

Florida teenager reported missing in possible gator attack
Shortly after noon, Wednesday, rescue crews headed out onto a retention pond after getting a 911 call from a man who lives nearby. Neighbors in the area say their lake is known to be home to multiple large gators.

"Usually he plays better the more that's on the line". Of the remaining four teams left in the National Hockey League playoffs, there may not be a better candidate for the Conn Smythe Trophy then Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. "You're pumped to come to the rink today and see all you guys and get ready for another tough series".

"I tried a little different things", said Fleury.

The Knights are onto the Western Conference finals, otherwise known as the Wild's mirage in the desert for the past 15 years.

9 - Vegas is just the third team since 1960 to reach the conference finals in their first year of existence, joining the 1967-68 Minnesota North Stars and St. Louis Blues. It was pretty reasonable to do so with how expansion teams had gone in the past.

"Figuring out a way to enjoy it, and I'm not talking casually enjoying it, but bringing that enjoyment into the intensity of your game, is what I thought we did very well in Game 7".

USA slams Iranian 'provocative' attacks on Israel
The US urged "all nations to make clear that the Iranian regime's action pose a severe threat to worldwide peace and stability". The Iranian missiles were intercepted by Israel's aerial defense system, which concluded in sudden explosions in the night sky.

The Jets are 4-2 at home in the playoffs, while the Golden Knights are 4-1 on the road in the post-season.

Vegas is used to rolling four lines and three pairs of defensemen. Florida gave away Reilly Smith in a salary move so Vegas would agree to take Jonathan Marchessault.

The Golden Knights are 11-2 in their last 13 games vs. a team with a winning record. "I think what they've done is one of the greatest stories in sports". There are no more surprises. That could be a reflection of teams having greater trust in young players arriving from junior hockey or college, or the need to stock rosters with cheap talent as a greater percentage of the salary cap is devoted to the elite.

All signs point to Seattle as getting the next NHL expansion franchise, and given the Knights' success don't be surprised if the rest of the league makes it harder for Seattle to duplicate what the Knights did. Most in the hockey world think the Jets will win the series. Former Winnipegger Jeff Stevenson will watch the game on television, before travelling from Calgary to Las Vegas next week for the third game of the series.

The Winnipeg Jets thumped the Nashville Predators 5-1 in a Game Seven decider on Thursday to book a first trip to the Western Conference Final, where they will face a Vegas Golden Knights team that has smashed expectations in its inaugural season. Fleury has had a highlight reel save in nearly every game at this point. "Sometimes like it feels like you're thinking too much about how much you should practise before the game, every morning, and being fine for games if I don't skate every day". While the whole team impressed by showing their resilience against the playoff battle-hardened Sharks, the Marchessault-Karlsson-Smith line once again showed that they're almost unstoppable. Fast forward and the Swedish forward scored 43 in the regular season, which was the most by a player for an expansion team and third-most in the entire National Hockey League.

At least 20 dead after dam burst in Kenya
There are concerns that the other two reservoirs owned by the farmer may also collapse, according to a BBC correspondent. Local officials say neither the extent of the damage nor the death toll are yet clear.

Nearly everybody on the team just magically became stars, the prime example being William Karlsson, going from a six-goal season with the Blue Jackets to a 43-goal season with the Golden Knights.
