Allegiant adds Grand Forks-Vegas flight for Jets playoff games

Gallant Gallant On Playoff Schedule			Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant goes over the playoff schedule ahead for the Knights

Games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference Final are in Las Vegas as the Jets take on the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Golden Knights got here by taking out the San Jose Sharks in six games, while the Jets moved on by topping the Predators in seven games. "He's maybe got something a little bit more to prove this year", Vegas winger James Neal said.

Winnipeg is 4-2 on the road in the playoffs after splitting a pair in Minnesota in its opening-round series against the Wild.

The incredible season continues for the Vegas Golden Knights. They began the season having won eight of their first nine games and haven't looked back since. "I just continued working the way I always did".

Laine finished second in the league in scoring, one goal ahead of Vegas' William Karlsson, and plays alongside Paul Stastny and Nikolaj Ehlers. During the regular season, he was 29-17 with a 2.24 ERA and a.927 save percentage overall, including 13-7 with a 2.11 GAA and a.934 save percentage on the road. Both teams were long-shots and now both teams are here.

The '78 Jets not only steamrolled through their season, winning the AVCO Cup in four straight games over Gordie Howe and the New England Whalers, they also became the first North American team to defeat the mighty Soviet national team, without a doubt the strongest team in the world at the time, when they won 5-3 on January 5, 1978, at Winnipeg Arena. They are the greatest expansion team in sports history, finishing the regular season with 109 points, while the Jets, after missing the post season a year ago, finished with 114 points.

Both teams have performed well so far in the playoffs, but it's time to dial up the intensity with this much on the line in the Conference Final.

The success of the Golden Knights: It's something the Las Vegas valley has never seen before.

Winnipeg center Mark Scheifele can not be stopped during the playoffs as he has racked up 11 goals along with five assists over 12 games.

The postseason could not have been much different than the regular season for goalie Pekka Rinne who is favored to win the Vezina Trophy in his fourth try after tying for the National Hockey League lead with a career-high eight shutouts.

Winnipeg's Connor Hellebuyck is a Vezina Trophy finalist after a regular season that included 44 wins and a 2.36 goals-against average. "He's like a lot of players, probably all players on our team, in that he wants to respond with his best season". Of course, that also applies to the expansion Vegas Golden Knights. The Bolts also play with tremendous speed and can transition the puck like no other team in the National Hockey League.

The biggest issue for Seattle is that it wasn't the expansion draft rules that gave the Golden Knights such a strong team, but a handful of NHL GMs that misjudged their own talent. Vegas did take two of three in this series during the regular season, so they do have confidence against this team and Marc-Andre Fleury is hot, while the Jets have scored just one goal in their last two games here at home combined.

The Golden Knights have only managed to be even from the high danger area or inner slot, preferring a very low event game there; only the Los Angeles Kings produced fewer shots from there in the playoffs.
