The Vegas Golden Knights know better.
They won a back-and-forth thrill ride at SAP Center on Friday, defeating the San Jose Sharks 5-3 and tying the Western Conference First Round 1-1. Kudos to the penalty kill, which not only held the Sharks 1-for-8 on the power play but outscored them with two shorthanded goals.
But Vegas can't expect to keep winning that way, even with goalie Marc-Andre Fleury playing as well as he has.
Eight power plays for San Jose? Thirteen in two games? When the Sharks have two Norris Trophy winners in Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson, one of the best passers in NHL history in Joe Thornton, perhaps the best net-front puck-tipper in the League in Joe Pavelski and more?
Asking for trouble.
