Game three was a doozie between the Sharks and the Knights that saw high scoring, a fight between Evander Kane and Matt Reaves, Jumbo Joe land a high hit to the head and the Golden Knights win with a final score of 6-3.

One key factor in their game three loss was the absence of defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic. It was confirmed before the start of game three that Vlasic sustained and undisclosed injury in game two and would not play game three. It was yet to be confirmed if he will be back in the line up or not in time for Game four Tuesday night.

It’s been defenseman Erik Karlsson, however, that has stood out as the Sharks’ playoff performer so far. Karlsson has five assists so far in these playoffs - two of those came on the powerplay. He is averaging 25.5 minutes per game and 30 shifts. He is -3.

Goaltender Martin Jones should continue into game four for the San Jose Sharks. His regular season record was 36-19-5. In the playoffs, he is 1-1 with a goals against average of 5.23 and a save percentage of .849 - the worst of all playoff goaltenders this round.

The Vegas Golden Knights continue to impress the league and it’s fans. After making it to the Stanley Cup finals in their first season as a team, the Knights now lead the series against one of the more formidable playoff contenders.

The shining star for Vegas has been forward Mark Stone, whom they picked up from the Ottawa Senators at the trade deadline earlier this season. Stone has six goals and two assists with a 66.7 per cent shooting percentage. He has two powerplay goals and nine shots. His linemate, Paul Stasny, also has eight points in these playoffs.

Marc-Andre Fleury should continue his play between the pipes for Vegas in game three. Fleury went 35-21-5 in the regular season. He is 2-1 in the playoffs with a 3.35 goals against average and a .897 save percentage.
