This will be the first playoff meeting between these two teams. These two teams split their two-game regular season series.

Vancouver trying to do what the Flyers did earlier and that is push the series to a Game 7 after being down 3-1 in the series.

Difference is, the Vegas Golden Knights look like an absolute powerhouse and the young Canucks seemingly had no chance and just should have been happy with just being there.

Not so, if were to ask them.
They lead in Game 6 by the slimmest margin, 1-0, but its a lead nonetheless.

And young Thatcher Demko coming in place of vet Jacob Markstrom (UFA Markstrom at year's end) and really shutting down this 4-line Vegas attack is beyond impressive.
The Canucks as a team could stand to help out their netminder a bit more and cut down on some of the crazy chances against him, but they are doing just enough to compliment Demko's outstanding netminding to this point.

1-0 though is nowhere near safe against Vegas. Not by a short shot.
Vancouver could do themselves a huge favor by coming out firing in the 3rd and try to cushion that lead early in the 3rd for their netminder.
As good as Demko has been as is, I bet he'd appreciate a two or three goal lead instead of just being up by one.
Breathing room is ALWAYS good!

Let's see if the Canucks can continue to stifle the Knights in the 3rd....or will the Knights explode and bounce Vancouver finally?

Puck drop coming up........

And there it is!
Apparently, the Vancouver Canucks agree with my previous post.
They went and got their young netminder a two goal lead.

Hughes to JT Miller, bam... 2-0 Canucks just over a minute into the 3rd.

Now.....let's see Vegas' pushback....

Mark Stone manages to break away from the Vancouver defense, shorthanded, beats his defender, and gets off a SOG, but Demko was there to deny.

And Demko with another stop as the Knights now are putting pressure after their penalty kill.

Win or lose in this series, I think Demko may make the decision of whether the Canucks should give Markstrom a big contract or not to stay, an easy one.

And the Canucks make it 3-0 now midway through the 3rd.

Vegas not going away though, as they are adding MORE pressure to the Vancouver net trying to come up with a goal.
Demko is just too good right now...and on top of that, he is getting the lucky bounces too!

38-21 shot advantage for the Knights at around the 10 min mark in the 3rd, but the more important 3-0 score advantage for the Canucks.

Vegas on the PP right now, and they are all over the Canucks.
They are definitely controlling the play, keeping the puck in the Vancouver zone and making Canuck players skate all over the place.

Demko still is keeping his shut out intact, tracking the puck well and making stops and freezing it when necessary.

Canucks get their win, shut out style, vs Las Vegas, force Game 7.

Now we got Avs, Flyers, and Canucks vying for a spot in their respective Conference Finals when they should have been done.

Nice job Vegas. Thank to you the Goddamn Stars-Avalanche game is scheduled at 4pm ET.

 

I wanted to celebrate the beautiful Stars elimination and pay tribute to the same 1992 collapse while being drunk past midnight, not sober at 7pm...

"I need a drink after the last three games before I think about Dallas. We'll talk tomorrow," said coach Pete DeBoer,..LOL

Deboer should watch the Flyers play if he wants to talk about needing drinks.
