LOS ANGELES (AP) The Golden Knights had modest goals in their first season.Put a credible team on the ice while attracting fans unused to a major pro league in Vegas Toronto Maple Leafs Hats Authentic , where gambling and big-name entertainers have ruled the desert city.Nobody said anything the playoffs, let alone making noise in the postseason.Its unreal, coach Gerard Gallant said after the Knights beat the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Tuesday and became the first expansion team in NHL history to sweep their first playoff series. It all started when we went 8-2 in our first 10 games.Now, theyre playing with house money.Were sky-high right now, said Brayden McNabb, whose second-period goal proved the series-winner against his former team.Next up is either Anaheim or San Jose. The Sharks are going for a sweep of their own with a 3-0 series lead.It doesnt matter who we play, Gallant said. Well have some time to get ready for them.Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will get some much-needed rest after backstopping two shutouts in the series. He stopped 31 shots as the Knights finished off their fourth one-goal victory against the Kings.Were still a few wins away from this being a great story, Fleury said.The Knights are the second team to win their first four playoff games, joining the 1970 Pittsburgh Penguins.We came in with a chip on our shoulder Custom Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys , forward Jonathan Marchessault said. When we play the right way, I think we can go far, but we cannot look too far right now. Weve got to look at the next game and be able to cash in the rest that were going to have here.Fleury survived a tense third period at Staples Center.With their fans shouting encouragement, the desperate Kings put the pressure on. Having pulled goalie Jonathan Quick for an extra attacker late, Dustin Browns shot in the high slot was stopped by Fleurys glove.Brown also hit the left post with 10 minutes to go in the third, typical of the close calls that Fleury turned away with seeming ease. His goals-against average is a career-low 0.66 and he stopped 127 of 130 shots in the series.Quick made 20 saves on Tuesday and gave up seven goals to Vegas, one of the leagues higher scoring teams.Both goaltenders were excellent, Gallant said. We got a little bit more puck luck and we cashed in at the right time.Vegas is just the third expansion team since 1968-69 to clinch a playoff berth.Suddenly, the Knights goals are unlimited.We didnt to expect to do this at the beginning of the year www.officialcanucks.com , left wing David Perron said, but it feels great and were going to enjoy it. ST. LOUIS The St. Louis Blues seem to finally be gaining some positive momentum this season, but they may be without one of their biggest offensive pieces as they host the San Jose Sharks on Friday night.Center Brayden Schenn (upper-body injury) seems likely to miss his second straight game. Schenn, who left Saturdays contest against the Minnesota Wild, did some light work in practice Thursday but was nowhere near full go.A little bit (of work), but obviously he wasnt involved in everything, so again, question mark for tomorrow, Blues coach Mike Yeo told NHL.com.Article continues below ...Forward Pat Maroon will be a healthy scratch for the first time this season.Maroon Vancouver Canucks T-Shirts Authentic , a St. Louis native, signed a one-year $1.75 million free agent contract with the Blues in the offseason. He has seven assists in the first 13 games, but is struggling to score.I think its been very frustrating for him, which is understandable, Yeo told NHL.com. First off, you know how important it is for him to put that jersey on, what that means to him and how he wants to contribute. Secondly, hes betting on himself this year. We know how important that is. Its tough. Weve seen a lot of good things despite him not scoring, his forechecking Vancouver Canucks Hoodies Authentic , his puck presence in the offensive zone, his physicality, his power-play (contributions), all these things.I think some things can start to get in your head and obviously confidence starts to play a part in that. I think maybe a little reset here can help him out.Forward Nikita Soshkinov will replace Maroon in the lineup and will make his Blues debut. He will play on a line with Tyler Bozak and Alexander Steen.Soshkinov and Bozak were teammates in Toronto.Hes been working hard and this will be a good chance for him, Yeo told NHL.com. Hes playing with a guy in Bozie that hes familiar with, two guys that are responsible. I dont expect perfection without the puck for Sosh; thats not what Im looking for. What Im looking for is his speed to be a difference maker. Hes got two smart players who can read off of him. For me, the way I should see it is his speed should impact the game all over the ice. Hopefully we can see that tomorrow.The Blues won once in three meetings against the Sharks last season.San Jose will be playing its second game in as many days after losing 4-3 at Dallas on Thursday night. The Sharks had their two-game winning streak snapped.Defenseman Brent Burns recorded two assists, including career No. 400, and forward Evander Kane tied the game 3-3 in the third period for the Sharks before center Devin Shore got the game-winner Vancouver Canucks Hats Authentic , his second goal of the night, at 14:13 of the third for the Stars.Sharks defenseman Joe Thornton played in his 1,500 career game. He is the 19th player in league history to reach that milestone.He does things that people dont even know or see to be able to play, Sharks general manager Doug Wilson told the San Jose Mercury News about Thornton. If he ever shared his actual routine with everybody, people would not believe it. But you dont put that much work in if you dont truly, truly dont love it. This is a really special person.
