VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 ANAHEIM DUCKS 1 (4-4-0 8 PTS)

The Golden Knights took it to the Ducks early dominating the 1st period, but it took all the way into the waning seconds before they got one behind John Gibson; a power play goal on a tip from William Karlsson. Ryan Reaves got on the board for his first goal of the season extending the lead after two periods to 2-0. Anaheim got on the board early in the 3rd. The Ducks kept it very interesting due to the unreal goaltending of Gibson, but the late empty netter sealed it for the Golden Knights. Big win to start off the homestand 2-0-0.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 BUFFALO SABRES 1 (3-4-0 6 PTS)

Like they have many times this season the Golden Knights came out jumping to start the game. Also like many other games, they appeared to be heading to the locker room without a lead. Especially after Shea Theodore’s goal was taken off due to an offside challenge. However, the first power play goal of the year was scored by Jonathan Marchessault. The Golden Knights continued their dominance through the remaining 40 minutes of the game coasting to an easy win. Cody Eakin, who we highlighted earlier today, scored a shorthanded goal, and William Karlsson got on the board for the first time this year as well. A late goal blew the shutout (and donuts) but a Marchessault empty netter restored the three-goal win.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 PHILADELPHIA FLYERS 0 (2-4-0 4 PTS)

Fairly sloppy 1st period ended without a score. Marc-Andre Fleury sprung into action in the 2nd making highlight save after highlight save including two on breakaways. Fleury continued his heroics in the 3rd keeping the Flyers off the board the entire night. Cody Eakin put in a great effort to keep the puck in the zone and then got rewarded with a perfect pass that he put into the top corner. Big win the Golden Knights really needed.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (1-4-0 2 PTS)

Another road game and another similar story. The Golden Knights played well in the 1st period but did not leave the ice with the lead. Then, multiple breakdowns in the 2nd led to a Phil Kessel hat trick. The Golden Knights got one to get back within two, but couldn’t ever get closer. That’s five games and just one win for Vegas to start off the year. More alarming, they’ve only scored nine goals in the five games.

WASHINGTON CAPITALS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (1-3-0 2 PTS)

Vegas played a much better first two periods out-chancing the Caps. But, like has been the norm through three and a half games the scoreboard did not agree. Washington scored on the power play and then on a quick odd-man rush. Holtby stoned a number of great chances from the Golden Knights top line. Cody Eakin scored a great wraparound goal in his first game of the year. The Golden Knights fought back time and time again but just could not get the game tied. Score looks a lot worse than the game actually was.

BUFFALO SABRES 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (1-2-0 2 PTS)

A very messy first period with little zone time for either team was decided by a terrible slash call on Paul Stastny. That led to a power-play goal by Jack Eichel and had the Golden Knights leaving the ice down a goal for the third straight game. A couple of miserable defensive breakdowns allowed the Sabres to open up a big lead of 4-1 after two. Jonathan Marchessault got on the board in the 3rd, but the Golden Knights could not claw back into it.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 MINNESOTA WILD 1 (1-1-0 2 PTS) – SO (1-0)

For the second game in a row, the Golden Knights looked like the better team in the first period but didn’t head to the locker room with the lead. Vegas dominated the play in the 2nd, but neither team scored. The Golden Knights had plenty of chances in the 3rd but just could not get one past Devan Dubnyk until the very last moment. Max Pacioretty fired one home to tie the game with about a minute to go. The Golden Knights had to kill a penalty in OT, which they did and the game went to a shootout. Former Wild Erik Haula scores the game-winner in SO!

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (0-1-0 0 PTS)

Of all things, an assist by Marc-Andre Fleury on a goal from Jonathan Marchessault kicked off the scoring in 2018-19. The Golden Knights held the lead for a bit but two goals to close out the period sent the Flyers to the locker room ahead. Vegas forgot to come out of the locker room for the 2nd, playing an absolutely miserable period. Philadelphia scored three more to go up 5-1 and Fleury was replaced by Subban midway through the period. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare put in a nice shorthanded goal, but not much else doing for the Golden Knights in the 3rd.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 SAN JOSE SHARKS 2 (6-1-0 Preseason)

Took the Golden Knights 10 minutes before they got a single shot on goal but that didn’t stop them from getting on the board first. Nick Holden scored his first (preseason) goal in a Vegas sweater on a great takeaway by Jonathan Marchessault. The shorthanded flood gates opened in the 2nd and 3rd with the Golden Knights scoring three goals while killing penalties; two by Nosek, one by Pacioretty. The preseason means nothing, but this team certainly looks ready for Thursday.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 LOS ANGELES KINGS 0 (5-1-0 Preseason)

Choppy first period which was riddled with Golden Knights penalties did nothing but remind us how good Marc-Andre Fleury is. Vegas finally got on the board in the 2nd with a Ryan Reaves tipped goal moments after the power play ended. Absolutely nothing of note happened in the 3rd period.
