Player depth will be key for Golden Knights in Western Conference finals

On Sunday night, The Las Vegas Golden Knights wrapped up their Western Conference semifinal with a 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks, and the Twitter-sphere couldn't have been more excited.

The healthy scratches (players not part of the active 20-man roster on game days) remain after practice to work, improve and stay ready all season for the Golden Knights.

Next up for Fleury and Vegas will be the Western Conference Final against either Winnipeg or Nashville.

The San Jose Sharks could not muster enough consistent offense in their second round series against the Vegas Golden Knights. Of course, some other sports have seen greater success for expansion teams, such as the CFL's Ottawa Redblacks winning the Grey Cup in their second year of existence in 2016 and MLS' Chicago Fire winning the MLS Cup in their first season in 1998, but these biggest sports are perhaps the most notable thanks to the larger size of those leagues at the time the expansion team was added. The Jets lead that series by three games to two heading into Game 6 on Monday night. Every player says the right things when they're benched but the Golden Knights' seem genuine.

"It shows the depth of our team", forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare said.

European countries that also signed the deal want to save the pact, as they think Iran is abiding by the terms of the deal. It comes just days after Israel revealed "secret nuclear fi les" accusing Iran of having covertly pursued nuclear weapons.

Team stat-leaders like William Karlsson (25), who tallied 43 goals and 78 total points, and Jon Marchessault (27) who totaled 75 points, have shined alongside veterans like goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and defenseman Jason Garrison. He finished with one goal, which came in the late stages of Game 3.

Reaves made his playoff debut in Sunday's win, leading the team with eight hits in 10 minutes of ice time after sitting out the previous nine games as a healthy scratch. The Sharks offence was good, but the Golden Knights offence was too much. And throughout that process, San Jose's front office will have to ask some tough questions about the next steps for an organization that appears as though it may be in need of a refresh in the near future. "Like I said, we had some chances. Like I said, I have a lot of confidence in this group". He allowed just three goals in a first-round sweep against Los Angeles, posted shutouts in Games 1 and 6 against the Sharks and was also spectacular in an overtime win in Game 3.

In 17 regular season games with the Sharks following his February 26 trade from the Buffalo Sabres, Kane scored 9 goals and 5 assists. In five of the six games, they picked up at least one goal. "I still have my grandkids there so the next couple days are going to be awesome". Wilson is liked to pending UFA John Tavares as well as Evander Kane. It's likely Kane will be re-signing with the San Jose. That's slightly more than Hertl's 32 goals and 68 points across 128 games, but it's in the same wheelhouse.

Kane said Sunday night that he's enjoyed his experience with the Sharks since he came over to the team in a February 26 trade with the Buffalo Sabres.
