San Jose Sharks vs. Las Vegas Golden Knights 4/28/18, Prediction & Odds

The Vegas Golden Knights hit the ice to practice before the second-round of playoffs

After suffering the worst playoff loss in team history on Thursday night, a 7-0 shellacking by the Vegas Golden Knights in the first game of the Western Conference semifinals, the San Jose Sharks awoke to find that the sun did indeed come up in the morning. Vegas hasn't played a game in nine days, while San Jose last played eight days ago, following its sweep of Anaheim.

The Golden Knights scored four goals in the first 12 minutes Thursday night, matching the total number of goals that San Jose and goalie Martin Jones allowed in the entire series against Anaheim.

Averaging 28.2 saves per game with a.933 save percentage, Marc-Andre Fleury (34-17-4) has been the top goalkeeper for the Golden Knights this season.

The game drew a 0.65 overnight national rating, up 35% from the first late-night Round Two game in 2017.

Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is Saturday in Vegas at 5 p.m.

The Sharks practiced last Friday, took Saturday off and practiced again Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, all in an effort to try and replicate what they might have experienced had their series with the Ducks had gone longer than four games.

Despite the mid-90s heat, an amped-up crowd began to assemble outside of T-Mobile Arena more than two hours before the start of the first period.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Golden Knights are listed as a -165 favorite to win on the moneyline.

"It's the first adversity we've faced in the playoffs, real adversity", DeBoer said. He allowed three goals throughout the entire four-game battle, and coming off of the best regular season of his career, there's no reason to expect anything less than stellar play from Fleury. And Evander Kane has something to see. Tuch capped the scoring in the opening period when he sliced through four defenders, made a swift move to his forehand for a wrist shot that beat Jones for a power-play goal.

Two teams that have pounded opposing nets with shots, San Jose has registered the league's eighth-most shots on goal (32.9) and Vegas's attempted the 10th-most (32.8). On the other side of the ice, the Sharks are doing well despite not having Joe Thornton.

It goes without saying that this kind of start isn't a great sign for the Sharks, especially considering they were a streaky team down the stretch.
