VANCOUVER – Max Pacioretty scored twice, and the Golden Knights of Vegas in the quarter-finals won their fifth straight game in a season, 4-3 against the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena.
Vegas gave up 3: 1 lead in the third period, but William Carlson scored a sharper goal with 6:25 left, converting 2-to-1 in a tight backdoor from Riley Smith a few seconds after Smith suppressed him backward.
"It's good to win when you do not play the best," Carlson said. "One hundred percent [Smith’s] goal. I just had the stick there and I struck the puck a lot. It's good for me and Reilly to finally get a shorthand. We have had many chances in the past, but we feel like every game we are dangerous for shorthand. "

William Bearer also scored, and Mark-André Flerie made 33 savings for the Golden Knights (14-12-1), who surpassed the opponents 23-8 in the five games.
"It's a great deal for the team," Pacioretti said. "Let's quit two, then go down and get a short run, it's like building chemistry and building an impulse. This attitude has never been completed for our team during this series and we've seen how well we can to play when we are playing the right way. It was a lot of fun, but we have to keep going. "

Patients are also attributed to lineages Alex Tukh and Cody Eakin, who made quite a bit of play to set his second goal for the recent success.
