However, the last time these teams met in Las Vegas, January 10th to be precise, the Sharks emerged with a 3-2 victory courtesy of a pair of third period goals scored 39 seconds apart by Melker Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi.

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every playoff gameday. Marc-Andre Fleury registered 34 saves on 37 shots in the winning effort. It was the Golden Knights fastest postseason goal in team history.

San Jose and Vegas last season split the first two games of the series 1-1 in Vegas during the Second Round.

The trio now has 22 points in the first three games of the series, and Stone has six goals in three games.

After getting outplayed in Game 1, the defending Western Conference champs have used their physicality to dominate the last two games, outhitting the Sharks 46-31 in Game 2 and 56-42 in Game 3.

Vegas scored goals at the 16-second mark in the first period, the 21-second mark of the second and the 36-second mark of the third, making them just the second team in National Hockey League history with markers in the first minute of all three periods in a playoff game.

Vegas will look to extend its series lead on Tuesday. Stastny scored again at the 16:04 mark of the second and Stone scored 36 seconds into the third, giving Vegas a 5-1 lead.

Couture got his second of the series when his pass intended for Joe Pavelski was tipped in by Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb. "The one thing about our group is they don't quit", San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said. So, that's something we can hang our hat on.

After two San Jose goals cut the Golden Knights' lead to two, Stone took a pass from fellow five-point scorer Paul Stastny and beat Sharks' goaltender Martin Jones for the third time with a smooth backhand to complete the hatty.

First, Stastny grabbed a rebound between the circles, skated to his left and drove a wrist shot past Jones 21 seconds into the period. The Knights have essentially turned this into a best-of-five series and now hold home ice advantage, which has proven to be a big factor in their success this season after going 24-12-5 at the T-Mobile Arena.
