St. George, Vegas Golden Knights Need Two More Wins!
MICHAEL F. AMADIO, baby...
The Vegas Golden Knights won in overtime on Saturday to take the 2-to-1 lead against the Winnipeg Jets, you heard it on your home for the Golden Knights ESPN 97.7!
The Jets turned the puck over on their side of the ice and Amadio was there for a game winning top-shelf, glove-side wrister that won the game.
Amadio didn't have a clean puck to hit either, it was spinning and flopping on the ice, put it came right in front of him for the winner:
What a stud.
The Jets are now in a back-against-the-wall situation.
Game four is tonight in Winnipeg and if the Jets can't get a win they have to go pack to the T-Mobile arena for game five and that could be a problem, although the Golden Knights have been tremendous away from home ice this season.
The Golden Knights are 26-7-8 on the road and 25-15-1 at home. That's regular season splits, and trends can change in the playoffs, but the Jets have their work cut out for them tonight in Winnipeg.
Jack Eichel has been awesome for the Golden Knights this series. He has four points which is tied for the team lead, and three goals. Eichel has been a pivotal addition to the roster since he joined the team last season. It might have taken a little bit to get fully ingratiated into the new lineup (the Golden Knights missed the playoffs last year) but this year he played in 67 games and scored 27 goals.
Eichel is going need to continue producing at a high clip for Vegas to live up to their Stanley Cup expectations this year.
