VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 EDMONTON OILERS 3 (9-11-1 19 PTS)

A funky bounce off a blocked shot found its way into the back of the Golden Knights net to give Edmonton a 1-0 lead. Vegas was able to get one back on a tip-in by William Karlsson, but couldn’t keep the score tied for long. The 1st period ended 2-1 Edmonton, but the Golden Knights 2nd period woes disappeared for a night as they scored three goals in the middle frame. Vegas did not let up eventually tallying five unanswered goals which sealed the game.

ST. LOUIS BLUES 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (8-11-1 17 PTS)

The Golden Knights used a breakaway from William Carrier to take the lead early in the 1st. But, they turned around and gave it right back within a minute and then completely fell apart. Four straight St. Louis goals sunk the Golden Knights in an all too familiar fashion.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 ANAHEIM DUCKS 0 (8-10-1 17 PTS)

The Golden Knights and Ducks skated to a sloppy start, but a big penalty kill play by Tomas Nosek completely unlocked the game for Vegas. It led to a Ducks penalty which Alex Tuch scored on. Then, in the 2nd, the Golden Knights tacked on three more. Vegas took advantage of every opportunity that was given to them and dominated another home game. Fleury held the Ducks out recording his second consecutive shutout at T-Mobile Arena.

BOSTON BRUINS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (7-10-1 15 PTS)

Boston jumped out to an early lead and then did everything they could to help the Golden Knights back in it. Not one, not two, but three power play chances and Vegas was not able to cash in on any of them. Matters got worse as the Bruins opened the lead to 3-0 before Gerard Gallant shuffled his top two lines and sparked a goal by Cody Eakin from Alex Tuch. A late 5-on-3, Boston’s third of the game, provided the dagger and Vegas heads home from yet another disastrous road trip. Just two points and push their road record to 3-8-0.

MONTREAL CANADIENS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (7-9-1 15 PTS)

The Golden Knights put in a dominant 1st period jumping out to a two-goal lead. The first goal came from Brad Hunt on the power play and then Jonathan Marchessault deflected one in with his skate for the second. However, a nightmare five minutes led to three straight Canadien goals. Vegas did respond with a goal of their own from Alex Tuch set up by some great forechecking from Cody Eakin. Vegas took yet another lead in the 3rd but blew it once again. Tomas Tatar scored the game-winner.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 OTTAWA SENATORS 3 (7-8-1 15 PTS)

After killing off an early penalty in their own zone, the Golden Knights scored not one, but two power play goals in the 1st period. With new power play lines, Jonathan Marchessault netted the first one for the new top PP line, while Shea Theodore got the second one for the other unit. The Golden Knights extended the lead to 3-0 with a goal from Nick Holden, his first as a member of the team. Then, following a fight with Ryan Reaves and Mark Borowiecki, the Senators got on the board. Ottawa climbed all the way back to tie it at three, but a pair of “4th line” goals by William Carrier and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare restored Vegas’ lead and gave them the win.

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (6-8-1 13 PTS)

A mistake in his own end by Nick Holden led the Leafs to score their first goal in the first two periods of a home game in quite some time. The Golden Knights fell asleep in the first :09 of the 2nd, conceding again. Then, things turned around in a big way. Vegas completely dominated the remainder of the period but only got one goal from Cody Eakin in it. Through two periods the Golden Knights attempted 61 shots, only 30 made it to the goal and only one went in. The Golden Knights continued the pressure but couldn’t get the tying goal. Erik Haula was injured and taking off on a stretcher in the 3rd period. Yet another similar story to so many games this year.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 CAROLINA HURRICANES 0 (6-7-1 13 PTS)

A frantic 1st period with over 20 scoring chances total from both teams combined. Brad Hunt jumped up into a play and put a perfect pass from Erik Haula into the back of the net. Ryan Reaves tallied another goal, his fourth of the season, in the 2nd. Vegas scored the game’s third goal as well with William Carrier’s first in over a year. Marc-Andre Fleury was tremendous all night earning him the shutout. Great game through and through for VGK when they really needed it.

ST. LOUIS BLUES 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (5-7-1 11 PTS)

Vegas started out about as poorly as they could, hemmed in their own end for a majority of the first five minutes of the game. They allowed one, but then turned the tide and started playing much better. A Pierre-Edouard Bellemare goal got the Golden Knights on the board and evened the score. The game see-sawed back and forth with St. Louis taking leads of 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2 until taking a 4-2 lead in the 2nd. The Golden Knights scored a gritty power play goal to cut it back to 4-3, but couldn’t ever get any closer.
