Goalie Martin Jones bounced back from an bad Game 1 performance to make 26 saves on 29 shots to earn the victory. He robbed Couture in the slot with a stellar glove stop, and allowed his team to take the game's last lead. The defenseman scored in Game Four, whipping a puck past now-teammate Marc-Andre Fleury from one knee. Expect the rest of this series to be back and forth, going to the third period or beyond to officially decide a final score.
"You live it over a few times in your mind when you're laying in bed, especially after a loss", Couture said Tuesday. "I would hope we bring some level of intensity, so it should be a great game".
"I wish", Karlsson added, per The Athletic's Eric Duhatschek. Jones has 36 wins, 30 losses, and seven OT losses and has registered a 2.50 goals against average and a.916 save percentage this season. "The schedule-makers did a good job of playing games every other day so it's easy to forget about a game when you've got another one (coming)". They've been dominant from opening night, starting the season 8-1 before finishing with 51 wins, seven more than the next closest team in their division. His patience was rewarded as he was able to get the tying goal by Fleury.
Sharks forwards Tomas Hertl and Evander Kane both scored in the third period just to send Game 3 to overtime. Fleury kept the Golden Knights in the game early as San Jose outshot the visitors 27-10 over the first 27 minutes. Unfortunately for the men in teal, they couldn't get another win as William Karlsson of the Knights scored the goal that beat the Sharks 4-3 in overtime, leading to the Knights' first win on the road in this series.
Knights coach Gerard Gallant said, "We were disappointed when they scored with almost two minutes left in the game (to force overtime)". Chris is a very intelligent, high IQ player. He's making a lot of the first saves on shots.

Madrid took an early lead when Gareth Bale scored with acrobatic effort that creeped over line, after Karim Benzema's shot was saved.
"To come out of that first period 0-0, we need to find a way to get the lead", coach Peter DeBoer said.
Brent Burns planted a ideal pass on Kane's stick and he knew what to do with it, as his whistling wrister evaded Fleury up high on the glove side. Alex Tuch fired a pass from the right point to a wide-open Marchessault in the left circle, and Marchessault one-timed a shot past Jones' stick side for his second goal of the playoffs.
Things flipped in the third period. After Tomas Hertl tied the game with 1:57 left in regulation, the expansion Golden Knights rebounded and won in overtime despite failing to convert on two early power-play chances.
Tierney, Pavelski and Kane combined for six of the Sharks' 17 shots on goal in the first period. "The good news is we're getting better".
After Gerard Gallant switched the defense pairings, Shea Theodore put the puck right into Schmidt's wheelhouse after a faceoff win.
