"But we're here to win. We're here to win". After the Golden Knights went on top, the Sharks lost all momentum, slowly falling apart. The series then moves to T-Mobile Arena for Game 3 at 6 p.m.

Jonathan Marchessault, Nate Schmidt and Cody Eakin scored goals for Vegas, who became the third team in National Hockey League history to win multiple playoff series in its inaugural season, joining the Toronto Arenas (1918) and St. Louis Blues (1968).

Jonathan Marchessault and Nate Schmidt both scored second period goals for the Golden Knights, who won the series four-games-to-two and will continue their historic season against either the Winnipeg Jets or the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference Final. However, the stat of the postseason may have happened last night in the series-clinching Game 6. "I'm proud to be where we are right now". Oh, and while we're on the topic of giveaways, keep your eyes out for the next Adam Kutner contest. He did not let the home team get the early momentum in an elimination game which is key to a road team having success. "That's what's made us successful". "The enemy's got a vote, and the enemy this series was Fleury". The 24-year old Czech also backed up his talk by being the best Shark on the ice at SAP Center Sunday as he was throughout most of the series.

But he has had plenty of help.

While Marchessault's goal was the game-winner, Nate Schmidt's unusual goal seemed to break San Jose's will.

"We definitely would've liked to have been a little bit more productive", Pavelski said. "The guys have just been having a blast all year with each other".

"We just didn't stick it in the net", DeBoer said. "This group believes in each other and that's more than anything you can ask for".

The Golden Knights scored a total of 22 goals in six games. It started when usually reliable Marc-Edouard Vlasic turned the puck over in his own zone. He was stripped of the puck by Reilly Smith, who fed a pass in front to an open Marchessault.

The Golden Knights then added to the lead after an icing by Brent Burns led to an offensive zone faceoff.

Later in the first, a shot attempt by Timo Meier went underneath a scrambling Fleury, but through the crease and just past the post. Play continued but was halted seconds later, when a quick video review determined the puck had crossed the goal line. He slid the puck into the empty net. The three combined for eight goals, 25 points and 61 of Vegas' 202 shots in the series. Despite carrying a 2-0 lead into the third period, the Golden Knights actually generated a 16-10 shots on goal advantage in the final frame, and the Sharks looked dead in the water for most of that time. "He had a couple of great games for us".
