Vegas, two wins from advancing to the Stanley Cup final, improved to 5-1 at home in the playoffs and host Game 4 on Friday night.

The Jets outshot Vegas 37-29 and controlled much of the play but still came out with the loss.

"I don't mind being confident, but I don't think you should go against the potential Conn Smythe player for our team; he's been our".

Lesia Klein and her group of 10 flew in for just 48 hours to be able to sit in the arena and watch the Jets take on the Vegas Golden Knights. "We take it one game at a time".

After stonewalling Tyler Myers' breakaway attempt with 11:50 left in the game, he stymied Scheifele's back-to-back shot with 9:30 remaining.

Jets captain Blake Wheeler suggested Winnipeg could easily bury Vegas early, as the Knights have done to the Jets in the past two games, pointing to the first game of the series in Winnipeg. Their surprisingly successful inaugural season is still rolling along, and they're one victory from a berth to the Stanley Cup final. The Blues ended up being swept in four games by the Montreal Canadiens in the final.

With temperatures reaching a scorching 33 degrees in Las Vegas, fans hope the team brings the same heat to their game.

William Karlsson opened the scoring with his sixth goal of the postseason - a one-timer off the stick of Jonathan Marchessault on the power play. The Jets are 7-1, but were chasing the Knights for a third straight game after giving up a first-period goal.

Hellebuyck made 27 saves but lost for the third consecutive game despite telling reporters after Game 3 that he liked his game better than Fleury's.

"Absolutely we should (have the cup come to our street)", De La Torre said with a laugh.

Jets' star defenseman Dustin Byfuglien whiffed on a shot at the point with the game tied 2-2 late in the third period, and Reilly Smith jumped on the puck. "We've got to pick ourselves up tomorrow and be ready for a big game on Friday".

When Hellebuyck bobbled a rebound in the second, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare scooped up the puck and attempted a wraparound goal. Nosek shoved the puck between Hellebuyck's legs to make it 2-1 at 10:12.

Vegas was clinging to its 1-0 lead midway through the second period until Patrik Laine got Winnipeg on the board with his own power-play goal.

With Myers serving an interference penalty Karlsson beat Hellebuyck low glove side on a cross-ice feed from Marchessaault at 2:25. Golden Knights forward David Perron played Friday after sitting out two games with illness.
