LAS VEGAS (AP) A year ago at this time the Vegas Golden Knights had one minor league player on an otherwise empty roster and no idea what to expect when an entire team was finally assembled.Now Adidas Chris Wagner Jersey , they are two wins away from playing for the Stanley Cup.The best story in sports got even better Wednesday night on the Las Vegas Strip, where the Golden Knights continued their improbable run toward the Cup final with a 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets. Before a raucous crowd of 18,477 newly minted hockey fans, the expansion team like no other won a second straight against the Jets to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference final.As much as 500-1 to win the Stanley Cup in this gambling city’s sports books when the season began, the players that like to refer to themselves as the Golden Misfits are now incredibly the odds-on favorites to win it all.In a city built on losers, the first major pro franchise could be the winner no one expected – even the players cast off from their former teams.Misfits, they’re not. But many of them had never even met before last summer’s expansion draft, and now they’re on the brink of the Stanley Cup finals.”I don’t think anyone saw us here,” said Marc Andre Fleury Adidas Joakim Nordstrom Jersey , the three-time Stanley Cup winner who was left unprotected in the expansion draft by Pittsburgh. ”I’m really proud to be part of this season.”On a night when Fleury made one spectacular save after another, the Knights were just good enough to take the advantage in the series. They held onto a one-goal advantage most of the third period, despite being outplayed and outshot by the Jets.The grudges they once held against their former teams are gone. But they’ve played the entire season with a chip on their shoulders after being judged expendable by their former employers.”We all came here with the right mindset,” said James Neal, who had a goal and an assist in the win. ”No one likes to be left unprotected.”That the Knights were competitive in their first season wasn’t a total surprise. The NHL set up the expansion draft so teams couldn’t hold onto all of their top players, and the Knights wasted no time in making Fleury the backbone of the new team.What did surprise a lot of people in hockey was that general manager George McPhee nailed just the right combination of speed up front to go with the stellar goalkeeping. And so far they’ve held their own speed-wise in the series against the Jets, a team built on speed itself.”They’re a quick team, for sure,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. ”When we’re fast we look faster Timothy Liljegren Jersey Womens , too. It’s the ebb and flow of the game.”The Knights are not only the hottest ticket on the Strip, but the hottest thing in a city of 2 million. Las Vegans have embraced their first major pro franchise and opposing players often talk about the atmosphere inside the T-Mobile Arena.Away from the arena it’s more of the same. Golden Knights merchandise is everywhere in the city and hundreds of fans show up just to watch practice at the team’s facility in the suburbs. Homegrown baseball hero Bryce Harper is such a big fan he has bats with Golden Knights logos, and singer Carrie Underwood offered (it was declined) to sing the national anthem after her Nashville Predators were eliminated.And if the Jets drove past Caesars Palace on their way to the game they might have noticed the statue of Caesar was holding a Knights hockey stick.Fleury, who made spectacular back-to-back saves that left him sprawled across the ice while the Knights were clinging to a 3-2 lead in the third period, was asked after what he would have thought before the season if someone told him the team would be within two wins of the Stanley Cup finals.”Probably laugh a little bit,” he said.No one is laughing now as the Knights try and make history as an expansion team turned Stanley Cup champion. The team has defied the odds since the opening game of the season, and bookies are having a hard time finding anyone to bet against them now.They were Vegas Strong, starting the season just after the murderous Oct. 1 rampage just down the street from the arena that took 58 lives in the worst mass shooting ever in the U.S. They became Vegas Born, which has resonated in a city where so many people are from elsewhere.Call them what you want. But soon you may be calling them Stanley Cup champions.”We’re just a bunch of hockey players that wanted to find a home Antoine Roussel Jersey Womens ,” Jonathan Marchessault said a few games ago. ”And we did.”—-Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at tdahlberg(at)ap.org or http://twitter.com/timdahlberg The new-look Montreal Canadiens, an early season surprise in the NHL, will make their home debut Thursday when they host the Los Angeles Kings (1-1-1) at Bell Centre.The Canadiens are 1-0-1 after starting the season on the road with a 3-2 loss in overtime against the Toronto Maple Leafs and an overwhelmed the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1 on Saturday.The Canadiens, forecast by many to finish near the bottom of the Eastern Conference even before they traded top goal scorers captain Max Pacioretty and Alex Galchenyuk, have used a speedy forechecking game to pressure the opposition, cause turnovers and create scoring opportunities.Article continues below ...Forward Paul Byron, picked up on waivers in the 2015-16 season from the Calgary Flames, led the Canadiens with two goals and an assist in the win over the Penguins.“That’s the way we want to play. We want to play with pace,” Byron told NHL.com. “We want to move pucks up quick. We want to make sure that with our group Tim Schaller Jersey Womens , with the talent we have and the skating ability we have, that we can play that fast game. So far, it’s working for us.”“I think we’re working pretty well as a unit,” Canadiens goaltender Carey Price told NHL.com. “We’re not showing a ton of panic out there when things are getting tough. We have guys that are all playing really well. There’s no real secret to it.”Canadiens fans will get their first regular-season look at 18-year-old rookie Jesperi Kotkaniemi, who was selected with the No. 3 pick in last summer’s draft.Kotkaniemi has one assist in two games as he adjusts to life in the NHL. He’s been getting some tutoring from his veteran teammates.“I think faceoffs are the area that I need most to improve on, so I’m working at it every day,” Kotkaniemi told montrealcanadiens.com. “We have older guys that help me a lot. They are teaching me new tricks every day and I try to use those.”They must have helped because Kotkamiemi’s success in the faceoff circle jumped from 14.3 percent against the Maple Leafs to 66.7 percent against the Penguins.Kings coach Jon Stevens didn’t like the effort from his players in the first two periods in a 2-1 loss against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.“I thought the third period, we started to play on our toes a little more and we were able to generate a little more of an attack,” Stevens told NHL.com. “But prior to that (we) totally played the game on our heels Jay Beagle Jersey Womens , backing up retreating instead of getting after it.”Kings forward Ilya Kovalchuk, who returned to the NHL after five years playing in the Kontinental Hockey League, scored his first goal with the Kings against the Jets. Kovalchuk, 35, signed a three-year contract worth $18.75 million with the Kings. He had 816 points in 816 games in the NHL with the Atlanta Thrashers and the New Jersey Devils before leaving for the KHL.The goal against the Jets was the 417th of Kovalchuk’s NHL career.“I prefer to win than score goals,” Kovalchuk told NHL.com. “It wasn’t enough, so we will be better next game.”The Kings power play could use Kovalchuk’s touch: it is 0-for-10 in the first three games of the season.
