WINNIPEG JETS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (28-17-4 60 PTS)

Vegas spent a majority of the first two periods on the power play, including a late 5-on-3, but the only goal that came from it was a shorthanded goal for Winnipeg. A  turnover at the blueline led to the Jets second goal and the Golden Knights headed to the locker room down a pair in the 2nd. Vegas finally got on the board early in the 3rd, but Laurent Brossoit played unbelievably. Winnipeg added two empty-netters late.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS 3 (28-16-4 60 PTS) – OT

A horribly sloppy 1st period dug the Golden Knights a two-goal lead that could have been three if not for an offside challenge. Vegas got it going early in the 2nd getting on the board with an Alex Tuch rebound tap-in, but six straight minutes of penalties could not be killed off restoring the Blackhawks two-goal cushion. As the period was winding down, a terrific shot by Ryan Carpenter got the Golden Knights back within one. It appeared Pierre-Edouard Bellemare tied the game but a “kicking motion” took the goal off the board. The game-tying goal did come on a weird angle shot by Paul Stastny. In OT, Shea Theodore skated directly at the goal and a fluky own goal ends up winning it for the Golden Knights.

SAN JOSE SHARKS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (27-16-4 58 PTS)

The Golden Knights came out firing dominating the first 10 minutes or so and scoring the first goal. The game started to slip as the period ended but VGK held on to the one-goal lead. San Jose mustered up only five shots in the 2nd but one found its way past Marc-Andre Fleury. A surprising hero emerged in the 3rd to give the Golden Knights a goal as Jon Merrill recorded his first of the season. However, a pair of quick goals put the Sharks back in front. The Golden Knights had a late power play in which they went 6-on-4 but couldn’t find the equalizer.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 NEW YORK RANGERS 2 (27-15-4 58 PTS)

It took quite a while for whatever was happening on the ice to look like a hockey game, but when it did it was clear which team was better. Vegas scored first with a Cody Eakin goal on a slick no-look chip in by Alex Tuch, then Brandon Pirri does what he always does scoring his seventh in eight games. Jonathan Marchessault got on the board with the Golden Knights third goal, his first in seven games. New York finally struck back in the 3rd breaking up the shutout, but the game was in hand all the way for the Golden Knights’ seventh straight.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 NEW JERSEY DEVILS 2 (26-15-4 56 PTS)

A pair of early goals gave the Devils a jump on the game but the Golden Knights did well to fight back as the period went on. A quick whistle took a Vegas goal off the board but a fantastic individual play by Ryan Reaves cut the lead to one. The Golden Knights played a terrific 2nd period scoring twice to bring the lead into the 3rd. New Jersey came back hard with 20 shots in the 3rd, but even despite a couple late penalties they couldn’t get one past Malcolm Subban.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 ANAHEIM DUCKS 2 (25-15-4 54 PTS)

The Golden Knights absolutely dominated play in the first period. They scored a single goal in the period on an incredibly long delayed penalty goal. Then, in the 2nd both teams broke out offensively as four goals were scored. Both teams scored a pair inside of a minute, Vegas’ came from Tomas Nosek and Max Pacioretty. The Golden Knights squandered a lengthy 5-on-3 and then an extended power play but were able to hold on at the end to seal their fifth straight victory.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 LOS ANGELES KINGS 0 (24-15-4 52 PTS)

A typical Kings vs. Golden Knights game it took quite a while to really get going. As the game started to open up Vegas garnered most of the scoring chances but Jack Campbell kept them all out through two. On the other end, Marc-Andre Fleury had very little work through two but when he was called upon he had to stop a few dangerous chances. Who else but Brandon Pirri scored the Golden Knights first goal. They tallied an extra one with the empty netter by Alex Tuch.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 ARIZONA COYOTES 1 (23-15-4 50 PTS)

A quick penalty put the Golden Knights on the power play in the first few minutes of the game. After a sloppy PP, Vegas scored as the penalty time expired. A great cross ice pass from Alex Tuch to Brandon Pirri led to a tap in for Paul Stastny. Arizona appeared to tie it, but an offside challenge took the goal off the board. A few minutes later Reilly Smith hit a wide open net after Brad Hunt skewed a shot right to him. A rash of penalties to end the period led to the first Coyotes goal but the Golden Knights were able to kill off the last two. They then got another tap in goal, this time Cody Eakin put it across the line after a puck trickled through the goalie. The Golden Knights started pouring it on as the period went on getting goals from Brandon Pirri and a shorty from Ryan Carpenter.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 LOS ANGELES KINGS 1 (22-15-4 48 PTS)

The Golden Knights played an excellent period in which they scored the first goal from William Carrier. However they had a rough shift in the final shift of the period and gave up the tying goal. In the 2nd the Golden Knights continued their dominance hitting a few posts but finally getting one to go on a shot from Alex Tuch. An unbelievable pass from Nate Schmidt sprung William Karlsson on breakaway to put the Golden Knights up by two. Paul Stastny added the empty netter late.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 COLORADO AVALANCHE 1 (21-15-4 46 PTS)

Vegas took a penalty in the middle of the 1st and it led quickly to a goal by the Avalanche. However, an Alex Tuch forecheck, following by a nice pass helped Paul Stastny get on the board and tie it up. The Golden Knights controlled the 2nd period but couldn’t find the back of the net. Then, in the 3rd, what looked like a harmless shot from the point by Brandon Pirri found its way all the way through and past Philipp Grubauer. The Avs made a push, especially late with two straight power plays, but couldn’t tie it up.
