With 3-2 series lead, Canadiens frustrating Golden Knights

MONTREAL (AP) Canadiens defenseman Erik Gustafsson enjoys the notion of the Vegas Golden Knights showing signs of frustration in being pushed to the brink of elimination in their Stanley Cup semifinal playoff series.

That's what happens when most everyone discounted Montreal's chances before the series began.

"We were kind of going into this series as underdogs, and they probably thought they were going to have more puck possession and do more stuff on the power play," Gustafsson said Wednesday, before the Canadiens boarded a flight home with a 3-2 series lead and Game 6 at Montreal on Thursday night. "But I think we've been on them from Game 1."
