San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane has been suspended one game for his cross-check on Vegas Golden Knights Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. Updates with new lead.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo took center stage before and during the Sharks' 4-3 overtime loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday.

The momentum, once entirely in San Jose's favor and then squandered in the second, returned to the Sharks.

Brayden Point - Tampa Bay's second-year centre buried an empty-netter to follow his three assists in a 4-2 Game Two win against Boston, evening the series for the Lightning.

Only the Sharks, after taking a well-deserved 1-0 lead in the second, conceded three second-period goals in the blink of an eye to Vegas, with two coming on the power play. It obviously won't be a good sign for the Sharks if they go another full game without a 5-on-5 goal. "We were tighter, our team game was better, we were better in every situation, and I knew we would be".

The Sharks needed two games and two-plus periods of Game 3 to score a 5-on-5 goal against the Golden Knights.

"I think it's good for the morale", Karlsson said. If Vegas chooses to rest him, however, the team might go with Malcolm Subban (15-7-2 record, .910 save percentage, 2.68 goals against average). Fleury, picked up from Pittsburgh in the expansion draft, got his third shutout of the playoffs and has allowed only three goals in five games.

A slow-motion replay from behind the net appears to show Sharks defenseman Brenden Dillon's left skate was responsible for making Jones hit the ice, but the goalie sold well the shaft of his stick making contact with Marchessault's torso.

San Jose players have been penalized only 3.4 times per game in total this season, and 2.2 per game over their last five at home. He came up with numerous unbelievable saves again to pace his team and keep them in the running. "We had a big one the other night". Can San Jose build on that tonight with another win as the favorite in Game 3? "It's a hard rink to play in and it's loud so we have to be ready". This is not a hockey play. "They get exhausted and you wear them down".

The goal gave Vegas a 3-1 lead late in the second period, but the handsome passing play was all that anyone could talk about.

SAN JOSE The Sharks did everything they could to send Game 3 of their second round playoff series with the Vegas Golden Knights to overtime. Coach Jon Cooper could have opted to make changes. I think Couture is going to be thinking about that one a few times. "I'm sure he's had stretches like this, but yeah he's playing well right now".

The Vegas Golden Knights faced more adversity than ever in Game 3 of the Western Conference Second Round. He notched his second goal when he took advantage of a turnover and beat Jones from the circle to put Vegas up 2-0 just 26 seconds into the second. After blocking a shot by Dylan Demelo, Fleury pushed the puck to Deryk Engelland behind the net, rather than covering it up.

William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault will both lead the offensive attack for the visiting Golden Knights. He also added 82 minutes in penalties.
