Sharks embracing underdog role vs. expansion Golden Knights

San Jose was blown out by the Vegas Golden Knights, 7-0, in Thursday's Game 1.

More than 2,000 tickets remained on the market as of that point with the lowest price sitting in the $170 range.

The San Jose Sharks knew early on this season that the expansion Vegas Golden Knights were not a fluke.

StubHub statistics show 52 percent of the tickets sold through the service went to Nevadans, with just 16 percent going to Californians. The Sharks are going to need to keep that up to break down a Vegas defense that allowed just three goals against in the first round.

Multiple people injured in Wisconsin oil refinery explosion, reports say
Mary's Medical Center in Duluth, a Level II trauma center, according to Maureen Talirico, a spokeswoman for Essentia Health. An explosion at an oil refinery in Wisconsin on Thursday resulted in at least 20 casualties, fire officials told KQDS.

They also recommend not buying tickets on the street, because they are not refundable and cannot be guaranteed. Before the public-address announcer could trumpet the game's first goal, Haula finished Tuch's rush to the net 26 seconds later with a sniper past Jones to double Vegas' lead.

Vegas didn't have a ton of offensive success in their four game series win against Los Angeles but they have been one of the league's best home teams all season long and are now in the midst of a 12-1 mark in their last 13 games at home against a team with a winning road record. San Jose's best opportunity came when Logan Couture sent a zipping wrister from the right faceoff circle, but Fleury continued his dominance picking Couture with a fantastic glove save.

Fleury famously won three Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins, but none of those teams at any point in the playoffs prevailed in five straight games. "It's a playoff game, not a regular-season game".

Offense alone can't win the series for the Sharks, though. It was as thorough a beating as they have taken all season.

Shares are trading up 4.8% in Wednesday's after market. 320,369 were accumulated by Grisanti Management Limited Company. The stock of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) has "Hold" rating given on Monday, July 24 by Oppenheimer.

The Golden Knights are hoping to continue their magical run. San Jose was 6 for 20 on the power play in the opening round against the Ducks but went 0-for-5 against Fleury.

The Golden Knights' team defense and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will need to be the backbone while competing against a much more unsafe opponent.

The Sharks are 5-1 in their last six Thursday games and 4-0 in their last four overall while the Knights are 22-8 in their last 30 against the Pacific and 7-0 in their last seven against a team with a winning record.

Both the Sharks and Golden Knights received stellar performances from their goaltenders in the first round, with Jones allowing just four goals total and two at even strength for a.970 save percentage. The Sharks perceive their best shot to get back to the Final since finishing as runner-up in 2016.
