New York Rangers: Three lessons to learn from the Golden Knights

Steven Stamkos trying to win his first cup, same for Alexander Ovechkin or the Cinderella stories of the Winnipeg Jets or Vegas Golden Knights.

Both teams have shown they can win on the road in the playoffs. Their penalty kill has gone from 81.0 percent in the regular season to 74.2 percent in the playoffs.

That Western Conference finals series will begin with Game 1 on Saturday night in Winnipeg. Have you seen how easy their expansion draft rules were? For instance, Vegas was able to poach top-4 defenseman Shea Theodore from Anaheim for nothing since the Ducks were reportedly scared that they would lose (current Devil) Sami Vatanen or Josh Manson instead.

"It is a quick turnaround", Hellebuyck said Thursday night. Other teams have struggled constantly to put together the type of chemistry that winning teams cultivate, and the Knights created it in one day.

The Jets this season have registered the 11th-most hits per game (22.8), but that number has risen to 27.4 over their last five home games. It will be interesting to see how the Golden Knights respond to starting off a series on the road.

DFS PGA Playbook: Wells Fargo Championship
The two are the first players since Jason Day and Brian Vranesh in 2009 to each have multiple eagles in the same PGA Tour round. Justin Thomas has a chance to go to No. 1 in the world, and Quail Hollow is where he won the PGA Championship last August.

It's part of a league-wide trend, too: The 50 rookie skaters in these playoffs are the most since teams used 54 in 2005-06.

Vegas is a great team, there is no way around that. Does that mean they're the favourite?

The Golden Knights may have the advantage of rested legs, but they also will catch a unsafe Jets team that could still be fueled by momentum from Thursday's win. The most egregious offender was Dale Tallon with the Florida Panthers. Karlsson has 10 points in 10 games, while Reilly Smith and Jonathan Marchessault both have 11 points in 10 games. Like it was in the mid 1990s, player availability is just not there.

WestJet is the only Canadian airline that flies to Vegas non-stop from Winnipeg.

Amazon grows its workforce in BC adding 3000 new jobs
Amazon said it expects to grow to 5,000 corporate employees in Vancouver in the coming years. Since 2011, Amazon has created more than 3,500 jobs in MA .

That's not to mention the bounty of draft picks the Golden Knights extracted from the rest of the National Hockey League, including three first round picks in 2017, that should make them a contender for years to come. There is no way you'd believe any of that that for a second. And people back in Beanpot country and elsewhere will have an opportunity to peruse the new kids on the block during the impending round of playoffs, because the puck will be dropped at a more reasonable hour (thanks to her employers). They're likely to be disappointed.

This difference with Winnipeg over the Kings or Sharks is the Jets can score in more ways and are loaded with sharp shooters.which is hugely important when it comes to beating Fleury.The Jets take shots from further out.that is also the key to beating MAF.

A tap of the stick to Nathan Walker, who made his playoff debut for the Capitals in the series-clinching game six, thereby becoming the first Australian to play in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Byflugien had a goal and an assist, and Brandon Tanev had a goal for Winnipeg. What's more, they tied the 1977-78 Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association for the longest expansion win streak (8).

But Vegas has a potent second line of its own with James Neal, Erik Haula and David Perron teaming up for 165 points. During the regular season, Kyle Connor led all Jets scorers against the Golden Knights, with three goals, and one assist while Mark Scheifele had a goal and three assists over that time.
