Do you feel they have every chance to move on to the Stanley Cup Finals?
Now? He's led his team to the conference final in back-to-back seasons, and he's the leader in the clubhouse for Conn Smythe right now.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Golden Knights are the third franchise in National Hockey League history to win at least two playoff series in their first season.
Following a regular season where they scored on 21.2 percent of all power-play chances (the 10th-best), the Golden Knights have connected on 17.9 percent of their postseason power plays.
Instead, it was the Golden Knights who controlled play for the entire period. When they needed goaltending, they got it.
"We play against really good players, you're not going to completely shut them down in a game", Couture said Wednesday morning of the responsibility he and linemates Hertl and Boedker usually face.
First, let's rewind to the expansion process. They almost pulled a huge come-from-behind win in game five as they fought back from 4-0 down to make it a 4-3 game, before eventually losing 5-3.
Fleury stopped 70 of 71 first-period shots in total, good for a.986 first-period save percentage.
Jonathan Marchessault opened the scoring, and Nate Schmidt added an insurance goal that was only detectable by replay. This was clearly a salary dump from the start.
When Marchessault has gotten started, the Sharks haven't been able to stop him. The only game they didn't get a goal in was a shutout. And because of that, the Golden Knights got two-thirds of their top line and their top three scorers through the first two rounds of the playoffs.
Of course, they weren't the only ones to do that. Nikita Kucherov doubled the lead about five minutes later when Victor Hedman set Kucherov up on the power play for a one-timer that blasted past Rask. I know they're generally harmless, but to me, the videos just highlight the disconnect between the league, which is trying to modernize, and its fans, who see it as largely anachronistic. Not a lot of people expected this team to play at the level they are playing at, despite the players they drafted. The Minnesota Wild would.
San Jose goalie Martin Jones has been up-and-down this series and I'm not sure I can trust him as much as Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury in this spot.
Yes, it will be different for Seattle.
Both teams got pretty valiant efforts from secondary pieces, but the gap between the contributions from their most important players was pretty astounding.
It might be a question the Sharks - eliminated from the playoffs with a 3-0 loss to the expansion Golden Knights on Sunday - will ask of themselves for quite some time. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. There's some sort of weird magical spell cast upon this team and I demand to know what the hell is going on here.
