VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (29-10-2 60 PTS) NEW YORK RANGERS 1

In front of one of the loudest and most juiced up crowds of the year (highest attendance of the year) the Rangers struck first in the 1st period. Vegas was able to answer with one of their own from James Neal. The 2nd went scoreless. The Golden Knights grabbed the lead with a beautiful Reilly Smith cross-ice pass to William Karlsson, who never misses an open net. Fleury was tremendous down the stretch of the 3rd and the Golden Knights were able to win their 29th game and record their 60th point in the first half of the season.

NEW YORK RANGERS 6 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (8-3-0 16 PTS)

The Golden Knights took a 2-1 lead and extended it to 4-2 heading into the 2nd intermission. But then everything crumbled as a pair of penalties by David Perron sparked a four-goal barrage by the Rangers. Vegas drops its second in a row to start the six-game road trip.

No 2018 Winter Classic At West Point, But That Won’t Stop Vegas From Visiting

During the entire Winter Classic today I couldn’t get my mind off the thought of someday watching the Vegas Golden Knights play in the NHL’s regular season gem. A while back we explored the idea of the Golden Knights being the away team at a game at West Point against the New York Rangers.

Well, it’s time to let that dream die… at least for 2018. The Creator confirmed the organization did indeed explore the possibility of playing a game at the home of the United States Army, but its not suitable for an NHL game at the moment.

The West Point rink doesn’t have NHL standard glass. The glass isn’t flexible. No (other) plans on the Winter Classic. -The Creator

However, his plans to bring his new team to the school he holds so near and dear to his heart are not going down because of some rigid glass.

We are going to have a day trip to West Point during an East Coast swing so the players can experience the institution.

So, no Winter Classic at West Point, no preseason game there, and no other discussions about Vegas playing in the 2018 Winter Classic anywhere else at this point. But that trip to West Point is going to be amazing for everyone involved.

Fingers crossed there’s an extra spot on the Foley VGK jet for a certain media member/blogger/me to experience it and share it with you as well.

Las Vegas In Winter Classic 2018 At West Point? Yes Please

**There is an update to this story.**

There have been multiple reports of the 2018 Winter Classic game being played at West Point with the New York Rangers as one of the participants.

The Rangers however must be the away team as their agreement with Madison Square Garden forbids them to give up a home game. Enter Las Vegas. There’s an obvious connection with The Creator to his alma mater, but the idea makes sense beyond that.

The NHL wants to do all it can to highlight Las Vegas in its first season, and aside from opening night, which will almost certainly be a Vegas home game, the Winter Classic is the premier slot. There is this problem though…

We would love to be involved in an outdoor game, but we wouldn’t give up a home date to do it. –The Creator to the LVRJ

My question, why not? At this very moment season ticket holders are beginning the process of selecting their seats for the inaugural season at T-Mobile Arena. The plan is for the team to play four preseason games and 41 regular season games in the building. But if there’s ever been a team in a position to give up a home game without the ire of their fan base it’s this one.

Mock Expansion Draft – Protected Players – New York Rangers

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.

Next up, we have the New York Rangers. The Rangers are being represented by Joe Fortunato from BlueshirtBanter.com.
