MINNESOTA WILD 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (34-13-4 72 PTS)

A miserable opening period for the Golden Knights in which they gave up two goals, were outshot 19-8, and lost the Corsi battle 26-12. The Wild added the game’s third goal but a power play tip-in from Erik Haula cut the lead back to two. Minnesota scored again on the power play sending the game to the 3rd at 4-1. Vegas never quite got going as the Wild become the third team to beat the Golden Knights twice.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (34-12-4 72 PTS) WINNIPEG JETS 2 – OT

The Golden Knights had a hard time getting possession for most of the 1st period which limited them offensively. They were controlling the Jets in their own end until a mistake from Fleury allowed for an easy tap in for Joel Armia to give Winnipeg the 1-0. An absolute monster effort by Reilly Smith (see below) got the Golden Knights on the board with a shorthanded goal, then Erik Haula found a puck underneath Hellebuyck to give Vegas the lead after 40. Late in the 3rd the Jets tied the game sending it to OT. A wild OT period in which it appeared Winnipeg scored three times ends with a David Perron snipe to give the Golden Knights the win.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (33-12-4 70 PTS) CALGARY FLAMES 1

The Golden Knights struck first with a power play goal midway through the 1st, but a pair of 2nd period goals gave the Flames a lead heading into the final frame. The Golden Knights looked like a complete mess for a majority of the 3rd, but then a mistake by the Flames set up Erik Haula for a fortunate tap in to tie the game with just 1:46 left in the game. Ten seconds later, Jonathan Marchessault gave the Golden Knights a lead and then moments after that David Perron hit the empty netter. Three goals in 53 seconds. Vegas wins again, in stunning fashion.

NEW YORK ISLANDERS 2 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (32-12-4 68 PTS)

Vegas controlled the run of play during much of the first two periods, but they just weren’t quite completely in sync. A funky bounce off Cody Eakin’s stick put the Golden Knights behind 1-0 at the end of two. New York struck again but Erik Haula scored another 3rd period goal to get the Golden Knights within one. The Golden Knights threw the kitchen sink at them with the goalie pulled, but the tying goal wouldn’t come.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 (32-11-4 68 PTS) COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS 3

Who else but William Karlsson scores the game’s opening goal against his old team, hos 26th of the season. Columbus tied it and took a 2-1 but then the Golden Knights poured it on, and in a hurry. Three goals in just over five minutes gave the Golden Knights a two goal lead. An insane lead lob pass by Shea Theodore to Karlsson gave the Golden Knights their fifth of the night. Vegas hangs on with a late empty netter from Erik Haula.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 (31-11-4 66 PTS) CAROLINA HURRICANES 1

It’s been a while since the Golden Knights jumped all over a team, but they certainly did that in Carolina. Three 1st period goals gave Vegas a lead they would not relinquish. Scott Darling became the sixth goalie to be pulled against the Golden Knights and the third to be yanked in the 1st period. The win gives the Golden Knights the best record in the NHL exactly a week before the All Star break.

FLORIDA PANTHERS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (30-11-4 64 PTS) – OT

The Golden Knights fall into three holes by scores of 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2, but they were able to tie the score each time. An incredible goal by James Neal with less than three to go sent the game to overtime, but a quick 3-on-3 session ended with a Florida goal.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (30-11-3 63 PTS) TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING 1

Golden Knights got one within the first minute from a re-direct by James Neal off a Deryk Engelland shot (Engelland’s 100th point). Vegas continued outskating the Lightning for a majority of the period and after missing a few good chances, Nate Schmidt was able to drive another one home. The Lightning power play did what it always does to make it 2-1, but an insane David Perron toe drag (see below) recovered the Vegas two goal lead into into the 3rd. The Golden Knights kept their foot on the pedal with an early 3rd period goal and then coasted to the finish line. Win number 30.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS 1 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 0 (29-11-3 61 PTS)

Scoreless 1st, scoreless 2nd, but not a game without plenty of action. Maybe the biggest moment of the first two periods was the mega hit by William Carrier (see gif below). Juuse Saros played absolutely out of his mind saving 43 Golden Knights shots.

EDMONTON OILERS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (29-10-3 61 PTS)

In the first game off the week-long bye, the Golden Knights understandably took a little while to get going. A scoreless 1st led to a high paced 2nd in which the Golden Knights scored twice. William Karlsson scores yet again, his 23rd, yet another one-timer from the slot. The Oilers tied it early in the 3rd. The game goes to OT where a three on one break leads to the game-winner for the Oilers.
