Jones can't make a big stop to save his life. I have been saying all year shoot high on Jones Glove hand or Blocker he can't stop them, Lucky he doesn't play Baseball as a first baseman, The Sharks Defense looks like swiss cheese, Karllson looks like he's hurt again. Got to hand it to G.McPhee he knows how to build a team & when there's a player he wants(Stone,Stantsy) he goes & gets them. Watch DW go after someone next year to rough it up with Reeves(Like he did when he signed Raffi Torres & wasted 9 million) & forget about other needs, Wilson did this after Chicago beat the Sharks, He went after Niemi & were did that get him

I am not a fan of Kane but much respect for taking on the knuckle dragger. I was hoping one of those would land and finally knock Reaves down a peg or two.

Keep dreaming. This ain't over, and it's likely that your boy "Evader" will not be able to run away fast enough from Mr. Reaves. Hope that Evader doesn't end up a highlight reel like Kypreos.

To be fair, not all "knuckle draggers" are the goons of old anymore. Reaves scored 9 goals and 20 points throughout the regular season, about what you expect for a 3rd/4th line guy.

I might not agree will all their shenanigans but they have a role and enough talent to keep up, Tom Wilson is the best (worst?) example.

That was easily the most fun atmosphere for a playoff game since SCF game one last year.

The building was bananas. My voice is gone.

As far as the game, absolute domination. Plain and simple.

Vegas got right back to work and on track there, great game. Definitely taking advantage of the Sharks poor goaltending and Karlsson is Karlsson back there and has always been exploited, even more so after the injury. He stays out too long on shifts and defence has NEVER been his forte at all. Vegas making them pay for that!!

Great to see the win for the Knights

The series changed after the brutal call disallowing the 2nd period Sharks goal and penalizing Couture. The Sharks have long been a mentally fragile team and it showed some last night with goals within the first minute of each period. Jones is not seeing the puck at all but I would hesitate to put in Dell because it would send the wrong message of panic to the team ala what McClellan did against the Kings in that epic collapse. The loss of Vlasic and Simek has been damaging and the Knights now smell blood. We will see what fight is left and who else might be playing hurt (Meier again, Karlsson to name 2)

He's a Kings fan, genius. Highly unlikely that Kane is "his boy...." Kyle Clifford maybe, but Evander? No.

Where was the running from Reaves? He took him on straight up...at the end of a shift when Reaves had just jumped on the ice during stoppage of play. What a tough guy....did he not have the balls to scrap w/EK9 when he was more rested?

reading for comprehension isn't everyone's thing and as I said, i'm definitely not an EKane fan. I'd like to see his face punched in as much as the next guy, but he went toe-to-toe with Reaves... wont be too long until Reaves gets Brasheared by someone.

I said it a few days ago on here and ill say it again. Stone is gonna take this team on his back, he already has. Vegas is as good as anyone in the west and Stoner is making a case for one of the best 5 wingers in the league, maybe top 3.

I couldn't believe it when the announcer said he's only 26... the man looks like he's a day away from 40.

Sadly I agree, he looks like a tenured HS gym teacher. He is very, very good at the hockey though.

There's always an AHLer looking to make a name for themselves. Don't like to see it, but he's kind of opening himself up to the possibility.

He looks like a creepy old man on the ice and Clark Kent in a suit.
