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.

Tough Stretches Continue To Haunt Golden Knights

After last night’s 6-3 loss to Detroit, Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant continuously talked about playing the full sixty minutes.

Well we had a real tough third period again. It was an awful third period. I thought we played a great game up until then. But in the third period, we struggled. -Gerard Gallant

The third period struggles Gallant spoke about starts with allowing four Detroit goals on twelve shots. The Red Wings down one, came out to win in the third.

They took advantage of the chances and they made us pay. We just didn’t look like we had the jump in the third period for some reason. It was disappointing because I thought we played a great two periods, but you can’t play 40 minutes or you’re not going to beat anyone in this league. We’ve got to play a full 60 minutes and tonight we played 40 minutes again. Transition is a big part of this game and it’s a big part of our team playing well. But tonight we fed their transition in the third period. -Gallant

Reilly Smith’s just chalking it up to being early in the season.

You got to nip those in the bud so they’re not stretched into five minutes or ten minutes. I think a lot of reasons why we, or other teams get into those stretches is because we’re not making a simple pass. Sometimes you’re trying to over complicate and guys are tired, so it starts to snowball. -Reilly Smith

The Vegas snowball began from the faceoff circle. The Golden Knights won only 42% on faceoffs all night, and lost 12 draws in the third period. Detroit maintained possession throughout the whole period which lead to multiple defensive breakdowns from Vegas. So how will Vegas fix tough stretches during a game?

DETROIT RED WINGS 6 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (3-1-0 6 PTS)

A miserable third period sunk the Golden Knights after looking pretty good through two. 2nd period goals by Erik Haula, James Neal, and Jonathan Marchessault gave the Golden Knights a 3-2 lead after 40 minutes. Then the third period happened… 4 goals on 12 shots, and Vegas was no longer undefeated.

Bettman Says Wings And Jackets Staying In East After Expansion

Gary Bettman is at it again. Speaking this time at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference the commish was asked a few questions on expansion.

At this point we’ve basically heard Gary Bettman say the same thing a hundred times in different ways. Something like this from that conference of geeks…

There’s been a lot of speculation about it. We have two applications, one from Quebec City and one from Las Vegas. That’s exactly what we expected when we began the process. – Gary Bettman

However, one geek pressed a little harder, asking Bettman about realignment and how it may work if Quebec City is awarded a franchise. Bettman confirmed something we’ve never heard before.

We’re going to have to look at (geography). If, for example, you’re a fan of the Red Wings or the Blue Jackets, you should know your club, under no circumstances, is moving back to the West. So one of the factors we’re going to have to evaluate is, depending on how the owners want to do expansion — if they want to do expansion at all — how do you deal with alignment? That’s one of the things we need to talk about.

Mock Expansion Draft – Protected Players – Detroit Red Wings

The first step to our mock draft is to establish the list of players that will be available for the Las Vegas franchise to draft. To do this, we decided to have a blogger from each team represent their own franchise and select the players that will be protected from the Mock Expansion Draft available player pool. To see the rules which were followed to protect players, hit this link.

Due to time constraints, our own Dana Lane has taken on the task of completely the rosters for each of the remaining teams. Next up is the Detroit Red Wings.

Protected Players

The entire list of unprotected players that will be available for Team Lane and Team Pothier to select from can be found here.

To see more team explanations just like this one, check out The Sin Bin Mock Expansion Draft Landing Page.

Special thanks again to Dana Lane for picking up the slack. Show your appreciation by following @DanaLaneSports on Twitter, and heck, throw us (@SinBinVegas) a follow too while you’re at it.
