VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 (37-15-4 78 PTS) CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS 2

It didn’t take time for the game to get going as the Golden Knights had a shot on goal within the first 10 seconds. Then, they took a penalty 1:00 into the game and Chicago cashed in to go ahead. Each team scored in the 2nd to send the game to the final period 2-1 Chicago. The Golden Knights did not wait long to take the game over though. Three goals in the first five minutes of the 3rd by Brad Hunt, Reilly Smith, and David Perron gave Vegas a lead they would not relinquish.

Flyers Used Icings To Slow Down The Golden Knights, And It Worked

“Coach said they were icing it so much they should open a bakery.” -Probably what Cody Eakin was thinking (Photo Credit: SinBin.vegas Photographer Brandon Andreasen)

What did the Flyers do with the puck when the Golden Knights offensively pressured last night? They iced it.

I don’t think the icings were effecting us. When we were all on the same page and we know what we’re doing, guys are out of position it’s easier to ice it. Get back into position and start from scratch. -Radko Gudas, Flyers Defenseman

In the second period alone, Philadelphia iced the puck six times including three within a  :30 second span. The Flyers dumped the puck from their own zone to slow down a heavy attack by the Golden Knights.

There was a lot of icing, a lot more than usual… I thought the second was a bad period for us and the third, they were protecting the lead and they did a great job protecting it. We didn’t get many good chances. -Gerard Gallant

Flyers captain Claude Giroux echoed his teammates comments, that icing the puck allowed some breathing room.

I think first period we came out and it was pretty hard. They were making plays that not a lot of teams make. For us, it was just to regroup and make sure we’re on the same page out there. When we had our chances, we were able to put them in. -Claude Giroux, Flyers Captain

Icing the puck is usually looked at as a bad decision or a mistake. Philadelphia used it to their advantage, and took the opportunity to disrupt the Golden Knights momentum. At times, it looked as if the icing stoppage was frustrating Vegas.

Yeah for sure. When we were playing in our zone and they were all over us, sometimes we were able to take a breather and readjust. It wasn’t our game plan to ice the puck as much as we did but I think we did in times when we had to. It helped us weather the storm. -Gudas

The two Golden Knights we asked, Pierre-Eduoard Bellemare and William Karlsson claimed it didn’t have an effect on the game. All Star head coach Gerard Gallant agreed with his players. The Flyers head coach agreed with his opponents.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (36-15-4 76 PTS)

The Golden Knights got on the board first with a goal for Brayden McNabb but the Flyers, despite being outshot by 13 through two, scored three unanswered to give them the lead heading into the final frame. Vegas was able to muster up a bunch of shots through the final 20 minutes, but couldn’t ever get one to go. Rough loss on home ice to start the homestand.
