Fleury and Marchessault once again lead Vegas to victory; Scheifele, Neal and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking.

HEROES

Marc-Andre Fleury – Vegas’ netminder stopped 33 of 35 shots, with 32 of those shots coming in the second and third period, on the way to a 4-2 Game Three victory over Winnipeg. He has a .945 save percentage in 13 playoff starts.

Jonathan Marchessault – The Golden Knights’ first and last goals in a 4-2 Game Three victory were scored by the diminutive sniper, who has nine points (6 G, 3 A) during a five-game point streak. He’s up to 17 points (8 G, 9 A) in 13 playoff games.

Mark Scheifele – The Jets centre scored both goals in a 4-2 Game Three loss at Vegas, giving him 14 goals in 15 playoff games.

ZEROES

Patrik Laine – The sophomore sniper managed just two shots on goal and was the only Winnipeg forward to get outshot (15 for, 18 against 45.5 CF%, 7-10 scoring chances).

Colin Miller and Luca Sbisa – The Golden Knights defence tandem was in hold-on mode (10 for, 22 against, 31.3 CF%, 5-10 scoring chances) in a 4-2 Game Three victory over Winnipeg.

STANLEY CUP HALF FULL/HALF EMPTY

Joel Armia – He played a team-low 8:01 and it came in a losing effort, but the Jets winger had a solid showing (13 for, 4 against, 76.5 CF%) in Game Three.

VITAL SIGNS

Nikolaj Ehlers – The Jets winger, who has yet to score a goal in the playoffs, wa out for Game Three, due to an undisclosed injury. He was replaced in the lineup by rookie Jack Roslovic.
