GAMEDAY THREAD — Game 4: San Jose Sharks at Vegas Golden Knights

Come chat with us as the Golden Knights host the Sharks for Game 4. Tonight is a huge game for both the Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks, and it could prove to be a pivotal moment in this first-round series. A win for Vegas would give the Knights a commanding 3-1 lead, whereas a win for the Sharks would make it a brand new series. In the case of a Sharks win, San Jose would re-claim home-ice advantage for what would then be a best-of-three series. But the Sharks will have to try to do so without veteran center Joe Thornton, who will miss Game 4 as he serves a one-game suspension for...

Winning Play: Thornton loses his way

Winning Play: Thornton loses his way

In the opening frame, Thornton was San Jose’s most important player. When Vegas overwhelmed the visitors — the Golden Knights, aided by two power plays, reeled off 14 straight shots and two goals in the middle of the period — it was Thornton who stood up to the barrage.
