Sharks suffer their worst playoff loss in almost 23 years

Fantasy Hockey Breaking News

Players scramble for the puck as Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (29) attempts a save during the third period of a regular season game between the San Jose Sharks and the Vegas Golden Knights Saturday, March 31, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After the Golden Knights' 7-0 harpooning of the Sharks in Game 1, it's hard not to think "Finding Nemo" would have made for a more appropriate cultural touchstone. The Golden Knights matched their seven-goal total in the first game against the San Jose Sharks, winning 7-0.

Marc-Andre Fleury has been a revelation between the pipes this season for the Golden Knights and he turned in yet another spectacular effort in Game 1 by posting 33 saves in the shutout. They claimed top spot in the NHL's Pacific Division before completing a 4-0 sweep of the Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup play-offs.

All in all, a lot of people all over the country watched the Golden Knights destroy the Sharks, and a ridiculous amount watched from their homes in Las Vegas.

Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is Saturday in Vegas at 5 p.m.

Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said his team must guard against overconfidence after the lopsided win in the opener and continue its one-game-at-a-time approach that has proved to be so successful during their storybook first season. Then, defenseman Shea Theodore chased Jones with a goal 3½ minutes into the second period.

"We are always looking for unique, innovative ways to connect with our fans", said Vegas Golden Knights chief marketing officer Brian Killingsworth.

It was a truly terrible start to the second round for the Sharks and their goaltender, Martin Jones, who was pulled after the fifth goal. They lost 9-2 to Calgary in the first round of the 1995 playoffs. And Evander Kane has something to see. Karlsson (83 points) has tallied 44 goals and 39 assists and has recorded two or more points on 19 different occasions this year.

Maybe one iconic "Jaws" quote can still suffice when it comes to Game 1 - The Golden Knights, "caught a shark, not the shark", on Thursday night. It's going to be tough, but the players are going to be ready, they're fired up. While their regular season accomplishments alone make their inaugural season a huge success, the Vegas Golden Knights still have their foot on the gas pedal and aren't done making history just yet. Sure, Thornton is inching close to 39, but he's still a supremely skilled playmaker who can give San Jose a shot in the arm at even strength and on the power play.
