They will play their first home game in the Western Conference Final when they host the Winnipeg Jets in Game 3 at T-Mobile Arena (9 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS). "We love playing at home in front of our crowd".

Lee Orchard, AKA the "Golden Knight" fires up the crowd at a watch party at Red Rock Casino during the Golden Knights game two NHL Western Conference Finals road matchup with the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, May 14, 2018, in Las Vegas.

I'm telling you, the National Basketball Association will be there in no time.

The expansion Golden Knights appeared to be rusty in the series opener and the Jets scored three goals early in a 4-2 win.

"It's overwhelming to have an National Hockey League franchise look to Saskatchewan and say, 'We want you, we want your attention, '" Moore said. The Jets have gone 24-23 on the road for the year overall and they have averaged 2.98 gpg and have allowed 2.77 gpg in those games.

Jets captain Blake Wheeler said the team, which was practising in Vegas late Tuesday afternoon, needs to improve its response.

"Winnipeg Jets' Kyle Connor and Bryan Little celebrate Connor's goal on Vegas Golden Knights during third period of Game 2 on Monday". "You can worry about them that night and then the next day get back to enjoying your time in the Western Conference final", said forward Andrew Copp. "It's going to be a lot of fun, and we've got to feed off that energy". He persevered, and with a nifty tuck alongside the right post, he beat the Winnipeg Jets'goalie Connor Hellebuyck to give his team the lead. "It shouldn't be anything we're not used to at this point but we know there going to be loud and they're going to be cheering for their team, for sure".

During the regular season, he was 29-17 with a 2.24 ERA and a.927 save percentage overall, including 16-10 with a 2.36 GAA and a.922 save percentage here at home. At this time of the year, it's all business. "We've got ourselves a series".

But that still can't compete with a Canadian team still in contention for a Stanley Cup. The pair noted they realized early on Saskatchewan had the opportunity to claim Vegas as their team, with a high contingent of Canadian players and plenty of direct flights to Sin City.

"Obviously", said Jets centre Mark Scheifele. You gotta put your nose to the grindstone. It's all about rest and recovery.

Much like in the second round, when the Predators' first line of Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson heated up against the Jets, the Golden Knights' top trio of Jonathan Marchessault (two goals), Reilly Smith (two assists) and William Karlsson (one assist) played a pivotal role in Game 2.

A day after a tough 4-2 loss on home ice, the Jets were keeping it light as they arrived on the Las Vegas strip. And if they do go all the way, he'll certainly be one of the key reasons for that.

"I threw scissors and Bucky threw paper, so I won", Copp said with a smile.

"I don't think you would have seen that (Monday) night after the game", he said. They fired 10 shots at Fleury in the first nine minutes and had some golden chances.

"Definitely excited about our effort tonight", Marchessault said. If you're putting pressure on them, everybody's going to make mistakes in games.

The Golden Knights then dominated the final seven minutes of the opening period, scoring two goals less than four minutes apart and hitting the post on two more tries.
