National Hockey League playoffs 2018: Golden Knights first expansion team to sweep series

James Neal has been scoring big goals in pressure-packed playoff hockey games since way before the Vegas Golden Knights were even a gleam in owner Bill Foley's eye. Jonathan Quick made a routine save but put the rebound right onto the stick of Alex Tuch, who fired it underneath a sprawling Quick.

The Knights became the second team to win their first four playoff games, joining the 1970 Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Kings need to do three things to give them the best chance to win game four. The Kings have managed three goals in the series - one from center Anze Kopitar (career-high 35 regular-season goals) and none from wingers Dustin Brown (28 goals) and Tyler Toffoli (24).

While the Golden Knights are now Stanley Cup co-favorites, Vegas does have them as slight underdogs to finish a series sweep Tuesday night at +105.

"We've done it before, but I don't think we're looking that far ahead", he told the Kings' official website. They have only scored a combined three goals in the series (LaDue, Lafallo and Kopitar).

"You have to expect their best", defenseman Deryk Engelland said.

The Golden Knights shut out the Los Angeles Kings in a 1-0 win, advancing them to the second round, where they will face either the San Jose Sharks or the Anaheim Ducks. Los Angeles has to be deflated in that everything it has tried hasn't worked. Even though it didn't work out last game, if Kopitar can get back on the scoresheet a time or two tonight it will help immensely in the Kings' chances of staying alive. He admitted it took him some time to knock the rust off but expects to be much better tonight.

Devan Dubnyk stopped 26 shots for the Wild, who played without star left wing Zach Parise because of a broken sternum suffered in Game 3.

"We definitely have to stay out of the box", Engelland said.

But the Knights kept pressing and tied it after a prolonged sequence of dominance in which Colin Miller's shot hit the post before Eakin buried Ryan Carpenter's cross-ice pass.

"We didn't to expect to do this at the beginning of the year", left wing David Perron said, "but it feels great and we're going to enjoy it". "They are going to play their game". At this point, we should no longer be surprised by what they do, and maybe they really do have a legitimate chance to make a run at the Stanley Cup.

Puck drops: 7:30 p.m.

"We came in with a chip on our shoulder", forward Jonathan Marchessault said.
