After twice failing to close out their best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series, the Vegas Golden Knights now play the first Game 7 in the franchise's short history when they face the Sharks on Tuesday night in San Jose.
Vegas, despite outshooting San Jose by a remarkable 59-29 margin, will try to rebound from a 2-1 double overtime home loss on Sunday night. The Golden Knights also failed to clinch in Game 5 when they fell to the Sharks 5-2 on Thursday night in San Jose.
"We have to (put it behind us)," Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. "It's the playoffs, right? You win, you lose, you put it behind quickly and get ready for the next one."
