The San Jose Sharks knew playing against the Vegas Golden Knights might be doomed scenario for them.

There will be at least one more game this series.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic missed Games 3 and 4 with an undisclosed injury after blocking a shot early in Game 2.

The Golden Knights wrapped up three playoff series on the road a year ago and will be looking for their first close-out victory at T-Mobile Arena, where they outscored San Jose 11-3 in Games 3 and 4. The Sharks would double their lead 10 minutes later on Logan Couture's third goal of the series. Hertl skated in on the rush and beat Fleury for his third of the series to give San Jose its first lead since the opener. That, however, was somewhat short-lived, as Tomas Hertl came back with his second goal of the night with 5:15 remaining in regulation.

Pavelski sealed the win with an empty-net goal. San Jose has scored 289 goals and ranks second in the league averaging 3.5 goals per game. The Golden Knights ranked 25th in the National Hockey League on the power play (16.8 percent) and 14th on the penalty kill (80.9 percent). Martin Jones denied him to hold San Jose's 2-1 advantage.

The tempo slowed down for most of the second period. It's just shift to shift, the things go differently.

Then the Sharks pounced when the fourth lines were matched up.

"We have to find a way to solve Fleury", San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said.

"I think he's improved his skating 100 percent from when I first got here four years ago, which allowed him to get up and down the sheet."
Hertl played an essential role in that victory, simply by getting the Sharks on the scoreboard first and giving his goaltender Martin Jones some confidence in the process. They stayed in the Vegas end for almost all of the two minutes Max Pacioretty was in the box, and had three shots on goal during the span and one as the penalty expired. Sharks D Erik Karlsson leads his team with seven assists but no goals in the series.

After defenseman Justin Braun took a shot from point, Goodrow perfectly redirected the puck to the top corner of the net on Fleury's far side. After missing some time he came back and played in all six games of San Jose's unsuccessful first-round playoff series. After Vegas forward Jonathan Marchessault got by Erik Karlsson, Goodrow made a sliding play to disrupt Marchessault's pass attempt. The Sharks were able to get to Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, after he kept them off the scoreboard with an incredible effort in Game 4.

They expanded on it later, thanks to Timo Meier.

With 30 seconds left in the period, Reilly Smith set up behind the net and attempted to center the puck to William Karlsson. Reilly Smith sent a centering pass from behind the net that deflected off Karlsson's stick and into the net.

Vegas led in shots on goal 12-6. The Sharks took 38 penalty minutes, compared to the Golden Knights' eight.

In the Sharks' second 5-2 win of the series, the winning marker may have got lost in the shuffle.

That doesn't mean they want to.

"It's great. It's a contribution that we as a group welcome on a nightly basis ... for them to score a goal there, at that point in the game too, it's good for our group."

"They're a team that's not going to roll over and quit", Vegas' Max Pacioretty said. It's not that they're down 3-1 in the series, it's how they are down 3-1. "Hertl was huge for us tonight", Jones said. He has finished only two of the first four games, ceding the other two to Aaron Dell, who hasn't been much better.

San Jose now will enter a hostile environment in a must-win situation.
