Montreal is only one success away from the conference finals after the success of the Canadiens (5-1) on Sunday in Game 3 against the Jets. The winner of this confrontation will find either the Golden Knights of Las Vegas or the Colorado Avalanche. The two teams are now tied on the series after the Vegas franchise health walk on Sunday in Game 4.
After coming very close to elimination in the first round against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal is now totally unstoppable. The Canadians have been able to raise their level and prove that they deserve to go further. Since then, the Quebecers have chained six wins in a row and are on the way to knock out the Winnipeg Jets, against whom they have now taken off (3-0) in the series after their card Sunday night in Game 3 ( 5-1). A success while in control for Montreal, which had imposed on the strictest of the scores (1-0) during the match 2. This time, the players of Dominique Ducharme did not make in lace, with five goals scored on arrival. Nick Suzuki’s teammates were quick to make an impression from the start of the match, with a goal from Corey Perry (5th), who came to put his team on the right track. The other goals of this rich evening in the field came later, in the second and third period. Artturi Lehkonen (30th) first managed to push the palace to the back of the net after a mess in front of the goalkeeper’s cages. Joel Armia (34th) then literally broke the cage and the palace with him. The Jets reduced the mark through Adam Lowry (38th). A short hope that the Canadian Nick Suzuki was quick to shatter by scoring the fourth goal for his team (49th), beforeArmia (57th), again, does not take advantage of an empty cage to afford a double and score his fourth goal of the play-offs. A 5-1 victory and a successful performance on the side of the Canadians, who are only one victory away from the conference final.
The Golden Knights equalize
Between the Colorado Avalanche and the Vegas Golden Knights, it’s not the same song. After leading 2-0 in the series after the first two games at home, the Denver players were joined. Winners in the snatch in Game 3, the Golden Knights won without forcing this time (5-1). However, Colorado opened the scoring through Brandon Saad (2nd), but very quickly Jonathan Marchessault (8th) equalized for the Golden Knights after a mess in front of the opposing cage. Max Pacioretty then doubled the bet (2nd) for Vegas before Jonathan Marchessault (32nd) scored his team’s third goal. But the native Quebecer of Cap-Rouge did not stop there, since he signed a hat-trick (47th). The man of the match is now five goals in his play-offs. He thus maintains hope for his team, who completed their recital thanks to Patrick Brown (54th). The counters are reset to zero.
