VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (20-9-2 42 PTS) PITTSBURGH PENGUINS 1

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.

CAROLINA HURRICANES 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (19-9-2 40 PTS) – SO (2-1)

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.

  • Did the Hurricanes aggressive early shot selection play into Fleury’s easy transition back into action?

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 (19-9-1 39 PTS) DALLAS STARS 3

2nd period magic returns as the Golden Knights jump out to a 4-2 lead using a three goal 2nd. Dallas was able to get the next goal, but a late empty-netter by Erik Haula seals the deal for the Golden Knights. That’s four wins in a row and an incredible road trip to Nashville and Dallas.

  • 35 shots = Win for the Golden Knights
  • 12 road games with a backup goalie, don’t underestimate that.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (18-9-1 37 PTS) NASHVILLE PREDATORS 3 – SO (1-0)

Golden Knights jump out early with a goal in the 1st and the first in the 2nd but surrender the next three to go down 3-2. With Subban out of the net, Vegas had chance after chance after chance, but couldn’t get one to go. Finally on a great pass from Colin Miller, Erik Haula tied the game inside the final minute. No score in OT led to an incredible shootout in which Malcolm Subban saved six for six. It’s three straight wins for the Golden Knights and a huge road win to start the two-game “Dad’s Trip.”

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (17-9-1 35 PTS) ANAHEIM DUCKS 3 – SO (1-0)

The night got off to an odd start after the Golden Knight slipped during the opening ceremony and then the goal horn sounded after John Gibson’s miraculous save that was not a goal. But that didn’t stop the Golden Knights as they jumped on the Ducks with two goals late in the 1st. However, Anaheim got right back in it and ended up taking a one goal lead to the locker room. Golden Knights were able to tie it late to send it to OT. Vegas killed a big penalty to send it to shootout, the first in T-Mobile Arena history. Alex Tuch wins it with an incredible penalty shot and Subban saves all three.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (16-9-1 33 PTS) ARIZONA COYOTES 2 – OT

A relatively dominant performance by the Golden Knights, but it took a while for the score to finally turn in their favor. A quick goal just :18 into the 3rd got Vegas a 2-1 lead but a pair of Golden Knights penalties helped Arizona tie it. It stayed tied into OT where Reilly Smith wins it!

WINNIPEG JETS 7 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (15-9-1 31 PTS)

Vegas came out completely flat but were able to turn it on for the back half of the 1st period. Then, it all went downhill. A tough game for Maxime Lagace coupled with some defensive breakdowns and a host of penalties sunk the Golden Knights. Third straight regulation loss.

MINNESOTA WILD 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (15-8-1 31 PTS)

Golden Knights played a pretty solid game but couldn’t get on the board until the 3rd period. They gave up the first goal but were able to battle back with two goals in under two minutes in the 3rd. However, that’s all they could muster up and a couple rough bounces led the Wild to a pair of goals. Vegas deserved better than a 4-2 loss on this night.

DALLAS STARS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 0 (15-7-1 31 PTS)

After a lackluster scoreless 1st period, the Stars put it to the Golden Knights in the 2nd getting three goals, all from Radek Faksa. Vegas got it going a bit in the 3rd, but just could not get one past Ben Bishop.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (15-6-1 31 PTS) ARIZONA COYOTES 2

Three goals, one minute and 42 seconds. That was the method for the Golden Knights in Arizona as they played rather lethargically outside of those 102 seconds. A 3rd period flurry made it a little nervy for the Golden Knights but they were able to hold off the Coyotes for their fifth straight win, their second such win streak of the season.
