Joam Eriksson scored 42 points and Joel Erickson a one-time victory over the Golden Knights 1-0 win over the Minnesota Wild in the first round doubles series in Las Vegas on Sunday.
It was the goalkeeper ‘s fifth shutout of his career, beginning on the 26thE Post-season party.
“The fewer goals in a match, the better the chances of winning,” Talbot told a news conference after the first match. We gave in in the first half, but we knew they were going to push hard. ”
For his part, Ericsson hit the target for the second time in 13 playoff games.
“It all started with Faceoff,” the overtime hero said. Greener [Jordan Greenway] And [Marcus] Foligno did an amazing job. I know where the puck is going. “
At Knights, Mark-Andre Fleury didn’t do bad, he was tested at 30 shots. He must have stood a few times with excellent savings in Mitten.
“He’s fantastic,” said Peter Debor, head coach of the Quebec goalkeeper.
“I think it’s an easy decision. When we look at our regular season, our two marbles are great, but Fleury got us through more difficult times and has been consistent throughout the year. It’s a very light decision and we have the luxury of having these two guys.”
Starting the conference, Fleury became the first masked man to see action in 15 consecutive playoff tournaments in the history of the National Hockey League.
Only Martin Brodyur (17), Patrick Roy (17), Andy Moog (16) and Jacques Plante (16) have played in the playoffs more than once.
In addition, the formation of Nevada deprived Max Pasioretti of services. The Montreal Canadians gave no reason before the meeting to explain the former captain’s absence.
The second duel in the series will take place on Tuesday and will also air on the TVA Sports Channel.
“This is just the beginning for us in this series,” Greenway said. We hope more can be done. We are playing with a good team. It was a tough game and we built on it. “
