“They Are Just Absolutely A Dog And A Bone On That Puck”

The House Always Wins. (Photo Credit: Photographer Brandon Andreasen)

If one game could sum up the Golden Knights season, last night was it. Considered the ultimate redemption game for Vegas, they beat the two-time defending Stanley Cup champs, and did it with a goal from a guy who has been a healthy scratch in each of the last five games and 12 of the past 13. Not only did the team win for their star goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury but they continue to handle the NHL’s best. After the 2–1 Golden Knights win, Fleury’s old mates commented on an emotional night.

When you see him in there it’s a little different, but once you get into play, you’re playing. Yeah, it’s the first time we played against each other, it’s to be expected to feel different. -Sidney Crosby, Penguins Captain

Maybe that’s a reason why #87 didn’t have one shot on goal. Alright, that’s a stretch but it was a difficult night for the two-time Conn Smythe winner.

I think they skate well. Every line plays the same and they keep it pretty simple. They didn’t beat themselves or make mistakes that could hurt them. When they did they didn’t break down and got some saves. Both goalies were good, but it’s just one of those games. Then they found a way to get that last one in the third. -Crosby

The win didn’t seem to upset Crosby nearly as much as it did Mike Sullivan.

It was a hard-fought game. It was another one of those games that could’ve went either way. There were chances on both sides and I thought the goaltending at both ends of the rink was good. It seems like those are the type of games that we’re in night in and night out and we haven’t found ways to win those, and that’s what we have to do. -Mike Sullivan, Penguins Head Coach

As Sullivan mentioned, the goaltending was good on both ends of the rink. For sixty minutes, Fleury was the better goaltender. His new teammates aggressively pressured his former backup Matt Murray.

They are just absolutely a dog and a bone on that puck. They just work so hard, and I think that’s where they know it caught us by surprise on a couple. Especially on the forecheck where like I said, caught by surprise, quick turn over, bang bang to the net. That’s what they are good at we knew that going into it, but they are definitely a hard working team and a fast team. Good in transition. You know, I don’t think they do anything special but they work extremely hard and I think that’s why they have such success. -Matt Murray, Penguins Goaltender

Quick, hard-working, strong on the forecheck, and good in transition. Basically, the Webster’s dictionary definition of an NHL playoff team.

There was also something about a dog and a bone, but we’ll leave that one alone for now.

Vegas came out with flames in their skates as was to be expected. They jumped out on top within the games first few minutes with a James Neal goal. The Penguins got one back and the game remained tied at one through the 2nd. The most unlikely of scorers comes through for the Golden Knights as Jon Merrill gets the go ahead goal.  Marc-Andre Fleury was spectacular in his first game against his former team.

Hurricanes Came Out Firing At Fleury

Well he had been out for awhile, you know almost for two months. I don’t know if we got to the him as much with bodies in front, but we got some pucks to the net.- Bill Peters, Carolina Head Coach

Overall, the early strategy didn’t affect the outcome but it was clear Carolina tested Marc-Andre Fleury right away. The Hurricanes won the opening faceoff, and took their first shot :20 seconds into the game. Fleury faced five Carolina shots before the Golden Knights took their first. When Brayden McNabb’s errant pass deflected off Marcus Kruger for a goal, the Hurricanes were outshooting Vegas 9 to 4. Kruger’s goal was mere luck, but the early strategy resulted positively for Carolina.

Put aside the first period gift-wrapped goal, and Fleury didn’t mind the early action.

The first shot I slipped, I missed my post… not a pretty first one. A few in the chest, two in the pants, it was nice to feel the puck and make a couple of saves. – Marc-Andre Fleury

On the other side of the ice, Carolina goalie Cam Ward secured his 300th career victory. A proud Ward broke down the Golden Knights two goals he allowed.

Someone flew through my eyes and I didn’t see it. All I could hear is the ping off the crossbar. I’m trying to think of the second goal now, oh the breakaway. A tremendous release by Reilly. He’s kinda gifted with that. -Cam Ward, Carolina Goaltender

The happy-go-lucky ‘tender continued to praise the Golden Knights.

They really push the pace. They put pressure on your D-men with their speed. They’re an exciting team, they feed off the atmosphere at home. It’s no secret that they were 11-2 at home. They have good things going here and I’m not surprised. -Cam Ward, Carolina Goaltender

I guess you could say it was a game of goaltending storylines. Fleury and Ward played well but faced different offensive approaches. Partly because Vegas made things easier on the Canes goalie. Remember, 35 SOG is the magic number? The Golden Knights got just 24 shots on Ward. Not good enough.


That white stick is gonna look nice with the white gloves. (Photo Credit:

Carpenter is a right-handed winger/ center who was waived by the San Jose Sharks. He was one of the seven forwards protected by the Sharks in the Expansion Draft but after only recording one point in 16 games he was placed on waivers.

The Golden Knights now have 24 men on the roster, so they will have to make a corresponding move today. That will likely be Stefan Matteau being placed on waivers and sent back to Chicago. (Update: As of 11:03 AM, Matteau has been removed from the Golden Knights roster on the team’s site.)

Carpenter will join the team at practice today or tomorrow and is eligible to play for the Golden Knights Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

What Exactly Happened When Perron, Marchessault, And van Riemsdyk Were In The Box

Don’t yell at these guys. They got it right. (Photo Credit: Photographer Brandon Andreasen)

Early in the 3rd period of tonight’s game David Perron and Trevor van Riemsdyk got in a little scuffle in the Golden Knights attacking zone. It then spilled over into the neutral zone where the play was eventually stopped and penalties were dolled out. Here’s exactly what went down, and why the penalties were served as they were.

The Golden Knights got off to a slow start including a gaffe behind the goal by Brayden McNabb leading to the Hurricanes first goal. Vegas picked the tempo back up in the 2nd and were able to tie the game at one and then again at two with goals from Deryk Engelland and Reilly Smith. Things got a bit chippy in the 3rd but no one could break through. It went to shootout where Vegas got the first one on shot number three from Smith, but Fleury couldn’t keep the Hurricanes out.

40 Points In 30 Games Means Vegas Golden Knights Playoff Hockey

Tonight the Golden Knights play their 30th game of the season. It’s a home against the 11-11-7 Carolina Hurricanes (29 points) who lost last night in Anaheim.

Vegas enters the game with 39 points and has a chance to join four other teams (TB, STL, NSH, LAK) to reach the 40 point plateau by their 30th game.

You should be asking yourself, why do I care about getting 40 points in the first 30 games of the season? Well here’s why.

Since the 2010-11 season, a total of 35 teams have hit that mark. 33 of them went to the playoffs and 32 of them reached 100 points on the season. (See full breakdown below)

Let’s put that in percentages. Teams that reach 40 points in 30 games have made the playoffs at a 94.3% rate and have finished with at least 100 points 91.4% of the time. Thus, if the Golden Knights earn a single point tonight against the Hurricanes, they have just a 5.7% chance of missing the playoffs… at least that’s what history says, but what does history know?
