"When teams are chasing the lead, it's tough for teams to battle back".

Ideally for the Golden Knights, tonight's Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Winnipeg Jets will go a lot like Saturday's Game 1 - only in reverse. Scoring in the game two win was Tomas Tatar, which was his first of the playoffs and Jonathan Marchessault, who scored twice and now has six in the playoffs. Scoring their lone goal in the game was Kyle Connor, which was his 3rd of the playoffs. The team has been forced to defend opponent power plays 12.4 minutes per game over their last five home outings.

Winnipeg (+115) is playing the role of underdog to Vegas (-135) and the oddsmakers have set the Over/Under (O/U) at 6 goals (-115 for the over, -105 for the under).

Here are 5 keys for Game 3.

Las Vegas produced its best rating ever for an National Hockey League game, a 15.3 rating for Game 1 on NBC.

Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant didn't have much of an update when asked about forward David Perron, who was unavailable for Game 2.

"If you're going to talk out there in the media that you have to be better, I think you need to lead by example", he said. You'd like to establish our game, play on our terms. Let's work hard, have fun.

The Golden Knights have just about everyone in Las Vegas cheering them on...and it's not just people!

Golden Knights fans erupt at a watch party at Red Rock Casino after Golden Knights right wing Alex Tuch scored a first period goal during Vegas' game two NHL Western Conference Finals road matchup with the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, May 14, 2018, in Las Vegas.

The Jets, of course, channeled the raucous environment of Bell MTS Place to score three early goals against the Golden Knights and coast to a series-opening 4-2 victory. The Golden Knights know all too well after being on the wrong end of a Jets onslaught in game 1. "The more direct we are, the faster we play, it helps us play fast and get all four lines rolling and get everyone involved", said Jets forward Andrew Copp, whose club is 4-2 on the road during the playoffs.

"When we had the chance here, I was like wait a minute, it is my job to tell you how great this will be for the city". "Yeah, that's pretty much it".

He joked that it's "pure luck" that has prevented Winnipeg from losing two consecutive games. Winnipeg lost three consecutive games from March 10-13.

"Yeah, I'm satisfied with my game", he said. "You are going to be mad, you are going to be upset about something in the game you lost. And really what you're doing is adjusting back to form".

The first goal could prove crucial because each team has been almost unbeatable in the playoffs when scoring first.

The Golden Knights is Las Vegas' first professional sports team, but after following the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings "I was nearly a season ticket holder without being a season ticket holder", said Shunock. "Little breaks last night might not have went our way last night but it's a long series and we've got to concentrate on the next game".
