Midday Fix: April 26

Notes and quotes from Thursday's morning skate ahead of Game 1 against the San Jose Sharks

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

It's been nine days since the Vegas Golden Knights last played a game and eight for the San Jose Sharks. The storyline in the early going tonight as the teams kick off their second round Stanley Cup playoffs series will be who shakes off the residual effects of such a lengthy break.

Keep it simple will very likely be the mantra of every player heading into the game. Straight lines up and down the ice will be the preferred tack for both Gerard Gallant behind the Vegas bench and coach Peter DeBoer of the Sharks.

"We talked about it. Managing the puck is important and we want to be north, south and not east, west," said Golden Knights forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. "We've been off for a while but we've worked hard in practice and prepared for this. We're ready to go."

Bellemare added - the opportunity to play in front of the fans at T-Mobile Arena is something he and his teammates are looking forward to tonight.

Gerard Gallant Recognized With Jack Adams Award Nomination

The Jack Adams award goes to the head coach who has contributed the most to his team's success

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

Gerard Gallant had just watched his team win Game 2 of its opening round series with the Los Angeles Kings and something was bugging him.

Winger Will Carrier had only seen 5 minutes and 17 seconds of ice time and Gallant didn't like it.

"I don't think our fourth line played as much as I want them to because of all the penalties. I like to play them more," said Gallant. "I like all four lines to be involved."

It's just one moment in the thousands which make up a hockey season but it says so much about Gallant and his coaching style.

Gallant, who along with Boston's Bruce Cassidy and Colorado's Jared Bednar, was named a finalist for the NHL's coach-of-the-year Jack Adams Award, has taken an expansion team to previously unknown heights and he's done it by creating an atmosphere of equality. Everyone has a role within the Golden Knights dressing room and everyone matters. Gallant is the ultimate "we" guy. He never puts himself before the team and he expects the same from everyone under his purview. The results have been astonishing.

Notes and quotes from Wednesday's practice at City National Arena ahead of Thursday's Game 1 against the San Jose Sharks

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

The Vegas Golden Knights will play a hockey game Thursday and it can't get here soon enough for players, coaches, management and fans.

It's been over a week since the Golden Knights dispatched of the Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and finally the second round is about to begin. Vegas hosts the San Jose Sharks in Game 1 of their best-of-seven series at T-Mobile Arena.

Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant has attempted to create a balance between rest and work during the layoff. For the record, the Sharks also won their opening round series in four straight games, so they've been idle almost as long.

The big question heading into Game 1 will center around which club shakes off any rust in the quickest fashion.

Notes and quotes from Tuesday's practice at City National Arena ahead of Round 2 against the San Jose Sharks

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

One of the benefits of earning a first round sweep in the Stanley Cup playoffs is a team gets to rest. There are potential disadvantages, however, such as a team not having to face the adversity of a loss. Handling the to and fro of a series and developing a thick, tournament tough skin is most often required to win hockey's ultimate prize.

Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant says he's not concerned with the fact his team hasn't had to deal with the aftermath of a playoff loss.

"We've handled it all year long," said Gallant. "If you look at our last road trip, it was really disappointing and I was a little bit upset with the way we played Calgary and Edmonton. Those games weren't really important games, but every time we needed to get ready for important games like San Jose and St. Louis or L.A. in the playoffs, we responded. I'm not worried about our group and we'll play the best we can. If we lose a game over the next stretch, we'll work hard and get ready for the next one. It hasn't been a big issue all year and I don't see it being an issue now."
