Jets vs. Golden Knights: Live score, updates from Game 1 of Western Conference finals

  Jets vs. Golden Knights: Live score, updates from Game 1 of Western Conference finals The unpredictability of the NHL is on display in the form of this year's Western Conference finalists, and the series between the Jets and Golden Knights could follow suit. Sporting News has live updates from Game 1.Before the season began, the Jets were hardly on anyone's short list to reach the playoffs, let alone finish three points shy of a Presidents' Trophy. Their transformation into bona fide title contender took effect slowly and methodically, culminating with last round's seven-game victory over the Predators, the defending conference champions and the only team out West that could conceivably match Winnipeg's depth and skill on paper.

A quintessential start seems like it's becoming the key to winning between the Winnipeg Jets and Vegas Golden Knights. In both game, the team that scores first typically earns the favorable outcome. Winnipeg scored three first period goals in Game 1, while the Golden Knights responded with two goals to open up Game 2. Now, both teams head toward Las Vegas for Game 3 of the best-of-seven series.

Winnipeg's game plan going into T-Mobile Arena is to make the crowd as much of a non-factor as possible. It's an achievement not many teams have been able to accomplish. The Vegas faithful were most likely waiting with anticipation outside the arena hours before puck-drop. Much like Winnipeg and those in its "Whiteout Street Party," Vegas' crowd can be deafening and a bit brash, but that's what makes the environment so difficult to play in.

How Vegas became the most successful expansion team in sports history

"A good start is really important in here," Blake Wheeler told reporters on Wednesday. "The first goal’s not going to necessarily make or break us tonight, but you’d like to get off to a good start, you’d like to establish our game, play on our terms. When we do that, the crowd typically becomes less of a factor. Those things start to play into our hands a little bit more as the game goes on.

"The game's not over if they end up scoring first but we want to get off to a good start."

Wheeler and Mark Scheifele share the team lead with 18 points. Wheeler's line proved difficult to be contained in Game 1's 4-2 win, where Wheeler scored three points. Vegas answered by shutting down the line in Game 2. Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves in the effort, improving his postseason record to 9-2-1. It's looking more and more likely Fluery will snag the Conn Smythe Trophy if the Golden Knights were to advance.
