Knights Slay Sharks In Conference Semi-Finals – Golden Knights V.S Sharks Game 6 Recap

1 min

Who would have thought that the Vegas Golden Knights, in their first expansion season, would be en-route to one of the most memorable years in recent NHL memory? After clinching first in the Pacific Division, sweeping the Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Golden Knights would seek to continued that narrative on Sunday evening against the San Jose Sharks.

What fans of the newest addition to the leagues category of teams witnessed was a stone-cold game played by the Vegas Golden Knights that would see an end to the series with a 3-0 victory, and a 4-2 series final.

Goals from Vegas’ Marchessault, Schmidt, in the second, and from Eakin in the third periods of play would prove to be enough for the youthful franchise to eliminate the veteran Sharks. San Jose’s goaltender, Martin Jones, would make 30 saves in the loss, while Golden Knight’s goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury, would make 28 saves in the shutout victory.

This loss continues the cup-drought for veteran players such as Joe Thornton, Brent Burns, and Logan Couture for the San Jose franchise.

While the continuation of the remarkable season that has become the Vegas Golden Knights will see the team in the Western Conference Finals where they will take on the winner of Game 7 between the Nashville Predators, and the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.
