The Jets and Golden Knights were tied 1-1 heading into Wednesday's Game 3, while the Caps were up 2-1 on the Lightning.
"We're here to win a hockey game", he said. "We definitely can't take it for granted". The atmosphere when Game 3 begins at 6 tonight at T-Mobile Arena should afford the Golden Knights the same opportunity. The Jets began putting tremendous pressure on Fleury, who faced 33 shots in the game, but he was up to the task. They held onto a one-goal advantage most of the third period, despite being outplayed and outshot by the Jets. The 27-year-old from Cap-Rouge, Que., beat Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba in a foot race into the offensive zone and scored on Hellebuyuck with a backhand shot. Hounding defensemen has worked for them all year, and it's crucial to the Golden Knights' chances to stave off such advances. "We can't sulk on this too long".

Tuch scored his first of the series at 8:13 of the second period for a 3-1 Las Vegas lead.
"They're a quick team, for sure", Jets coach Paul Maurice said. Around Christmas time, we played them and saw they are the real deal. It would be rare that you lead the series straight through.More news: European Union top diplomats in agreement to follow through Iran N
"We're just a bunch of hockey players that wanted to find a home", Jonathan Marchessault said a few games ago.

The Golden Knights are hoping to keep the momentum as they host Game 3.

Ultimately, an empty-net goal by Marchessault with three seconds to play sealed the game.
Fleury stopped Byfuglien's point-blank one-timer in the second period and poked the puck away from an all-alone Bryan Little later in the period.
"We're getting our mindsets right and that's important", Hellebuyck said.
"You win one and all of a sudden they get one and we lose one". "That's our game. We're a fast team. I knew we were going to battle well, compete well and no one was going to push us over, that's for sure".
