VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (48-21-7 103 PTS) COLORADO AVALANCHE 1

Another scoreless first between the Avs and Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena. The Golden Knights came out looking much better in the 2nd and took a lead. Colorado tied it up on a goal that looked like it should have been back for goalie interference. Then, a high stick to the face of Pierre-Edouard Bellemare seemed to light a fire under the Golden Knights. They scored on the ensuing penalty and looked incredible to start the 3rd. They took a 3-1 lead and hung on all the way to the finish when William Karlsson scored his 40th goal. With the win, the Golden Knights have clinched a playoff berth!

COLORADO AVALANCHE 2 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (47-21-7 101 PTS) – SO (1-0)

The Golden Knights seemed to had forgotten to get out of bed playing two very sleepy periods of hockey to start the game. However, they did well to keep the puck away from Fleury for the most part and allowed just one power play goal. The alarm clock went off though and Vegas came out in a fury in the 3rd. They scored the game-tying goal and had multiple chances at the winner but it wouldn’t come in regulation. In overtime, the Golden Knights dominance continued, but they couldn’t get one to go. Colorado scores the only goal in shootout.

SAN JOSE SHARKS 2 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (47-21-6 100 PTS) – OT

Another hot start for the Golden Knights at the Shark Tank. Vegas struck first with a goal by Tomas Tatar. They continued the pressure for a majority of the 1st and headed to intermission up a goal. San Jose tied it up in the 2nd and it turned into a playoff intensity style game throughout the final 40 minutes. Malcolm Subban had the game of his life saving 43 shots, but the first one in OT got by them.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (47-21-5 99 PTS) VANCOUVER CANUCKS 1

The worst team in the NHL came to T-Mobile Arena to take on a team that recently re-found themselves as one of the best in the NHL. The game played out exactly like expected. Vegas scored twice in the first five minutes. They added one more in the 1st and another in the 2nd. However, Marc-Andre Fleury was removed from the game at the end of the 1st period, he did not return to the bench the remainder of the game.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (46-21-5 97 PTS) CALGARY FLAMES 0

After a mini-team meeting and a very angry locker room following the four game home losing streak, the Golden Knights were expected to come out guns blazing on the Sunday afternoon game. That didn’t happen as they were outshot 20-6 in the 1st and couldn’t seem to generate much offense. Then, the 2nd happened, and the old Golden Knight returned to the tune of four goals in less than 10 minutes including a natural (three in a row) hat trick by William Karlsson. The final period was about one thing, donuts, and Marc-Andre Fleury delivered the shutout necessary to earn everyone Krispy Kremes.

MINNESOTA WILD 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (45-21-5 95 PTS)

For the second game in a row the Golden Knights got off to a miserable start. They allowed one in the 1st and two more in the 2nd and headed to intermission down 3-0. Vegas finally looked like themselves for the final seven minutes or so of the game, but the goals game to few and too late and an empty netter sealed it for Minnesota. That’s four straight losses at T-Mobile Arena for the Golden Knights.

NEW JERSEY DEVILS 8 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (45-20-5 95 PTS)

Despite controlling play for a majority of the 1st period the Golden Knights made a pair of errors and ended up falling behind 2-0. In the 2nd, New Jersey came out firing and scored a pair of early games which chased Marc-Andre Fleury from the game. Vegas fired back with a pair of their own, but it got ugly in the 3rd.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (45-19-5 95 PTS) PHILADELPHIA FLYERS 2

For the first time in a while, the Golden Knights were buzzing in the 1st. The high paced period ended with just one goal, from Erik Haula. The 2nd seemed to resort back to more of what we’ve seen recently from Vegas; a much slower period which led to a goal by the Flyers to head to the final intermission tied. The Golden Knights got it going again early in the final period scoring first, but they conceded the game tying goal moments later. Then, an incredible shift by Pierre-Edouard Bellemare set up a goal for Ryan Carpenter to give Vegas their 45th win and Marc-Andre Fleury’s 400th career victory.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (44-19-5 93 PTS) BUFFALO SABRES 1 – SO

After a sleepy first two periods of scoreless hockey, the Sabres broke through early in the 3rd. Vegas wasn’t mustering up much, but finally found a wacky game tying goal from Deryk Engelland that banked off a Buffalo player. OT was back and forth but neither team could convert. David Perron got the Golden Knights on the board first in shootout, but Buffalo tied it with their last attempt. Erik Haula came through with the game winner in shootout.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (43-19-5 91 PTS) DETROIT RED WINGS 0

The Golden Knights iced the puck directly off the opening face-off, but that was the end of the bad news for them on the night. Alex Tuch scored his first goal in his last seven games. The Cody Eakin struck twice, once shorthanded, and then Tuch added his second of the night in the 2nd as well. Vegas coasted to the finish line in the 3rd.
