City National Arena roared with cheers Friday night as the Vegas Golden Knights took game five against the San Jose Sharks for the Stanley Cup playoffs.

"We have to play harder for longer stretches than we did tonight", DeBoer said. "They've been wonderful since the start, so I haven't doubted them". Tuch's goal proved to be an ever-important, being the fourth strike in what ended up being a 5-3 win and a 3-2 series lead for Vegas. Throughout the first 50 minutes of the game, the Golden Knights were dominant in the biggest moment of their brief franchise history.

"We play against really good players, you're not going to completely shut them down in a game", Couture said Wednesday morning of the responsibility he and linemates Hertl and Boedker usually face. Dell replaced starter Martin Jones at 8:36 of the third period after Vegas forward Alex Tuch made it 4-0. They brought their A-game. William Karlsson leads Las Vegas with four goals, Reilly Smith has nine assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 39 shots on goal. Kevin Lebanc pulled San Jose within three goals when he scored on the power play at 9:35.

As fans, we don't see the team's preparation and planning game by game. "We have to go back (home), win a game, and then find a way in Game 7".

Neal scored the opening goal of the game with only three seconds left in the first period. Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 17 goals on 316 shots faced.

"The other night we played okay, but it wasn't good enough to win. They get exhausted and you wear them down".

Vegas' 29 wins at home in the regular season were tied with the Tampa Bay Lightning for third in the National Hockey League, behind the Winnipeg Jets (32) and Pittsburgh Penguins (30).

The San Jose Sharks need a victory here in order to force a game seven on Tuesday.

A loss tonight would have been catastrophic for the Golden Knights, as the Sharks would have taken a two-game winning streak back to San Jose with a chance to close out the series at home.

"I wasn't too happy with a lot of it to be honest with you", Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said.

Vegas came out with much better energy to start off the game. "I think we turn the page pretty well".

Starting with their first game on October 6 in Dallas, you can argue Vegas has won every pivotal game in its path. He notched his second goal when he took advantage of a turnover and beat Jones from the circle to put Vegas up 2-0 just 26 seconds into the second. Less than two minutes later San Jose made things interesting when Boedker's wraparound got loose, and Hertl was in the right spot to poke it in and cut Vegas' lead to 4-2. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed three or more goals in each of their last four games. As Fleury tried to clear the puck behind the Vegas net, Logan Couture smashed into the boards to stop the puck. Tomas Hertl got ahold of it and fed Couture, who one-timed in with just under nine minutes left in the second.
