The Golden Knights controlled the beginning portion of the 1st period but then Connor McDavid happened. Vegas got it going towards the end of the 2nd period and William Karlsson banked one in off an Oiler’s skate scoring for the fourth game in a row. A giveaway behind the goal led to Edmonton regaining the lead early in the 3rd. Vegas couldn’t muster up enough chances to get one behind Mikko Koskinen.

The Golden Knights got off to a bit of a slow start allowing a 1st period goal on a delayed penalty, but they really came on as the period wore on. A great shift for the “4th” line earned a goal for William Carrier. Then, a power play goal by Max Pacioretty gave the Golden Knights the lead heading into the 2nd intermission. Vegas surrendered a two-goal lead, but an awesome effort from Reilly Smith on the penalty kill led to a tap-in for William Karlsson for the game-winner.

Somewhat of a mess of a period from both teams to start the game. Both teams had a power play chance they did nothing with. 0-0 after the 1st felt like the only justifiable score. The Golden Knights got on the board first with a great forechecking play by Erik Haula to set up Max Pacioretty. However, a pair of Canucks goals gave Vancouver the lead back. Ryan Reaves’ second of the year tied it late in the 2nd. Vegas had plenty of chances in the 3rd but couldn’t get one past Jacob Markstrom. The Golden Knights had the better chances in OT, but couldn’t score. In shootout, Fleury stopped the first three but couldn’t keep the fourth out. Vegas went scoreless.

  • Scored his second goal today, but Pacioretty’s not great in October and December in his career
  • Planning on asking some questions about the 6% power play success rate, not sure what we’ll get back but expect it to be cliche-y.

In his first Golden Knights game, Brandon Pirri scored on his first and third shots netting a pair in the first two periods. Tomas Tatar added a goal himself as the Golden Knights dominated both the 1st and 2nd periods. After they made it 4-1 early in the 3rd, the Canucks stormed back tying it at four with more than nine minutes to go. Vegas scored in OT, but a goalie interference call brought it back. In shootout, Malcolm Subban was his typical dominant self once again stopping four shots. Shea Theodore hit the game-winner in shootout.

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.

Golden Knights jump out to a quick start but a terrible giveaway in the 2nd made it a game. Tied 2-2 after two periods the Golden Knights played a great 3rd and end up winning the game 5-2 with a few late goals. Big win to get two points in two games on the road.

Vancouver’s Trevor Linden Can’t Stomach Losing A Player To Vegas

What team isn’t dreading expansion, right? Adding another team to the growing list of expansion concerned teams is the Vancouver Canucks. The Nucks are a team with seemingly no direction. Their once highly-skilled roster is aging and their youth hasn’t developed enough to compete yet, which is why the Canucks ownership and front office are fearing June 17th.

I was talking to Murray Craven, just from the Vegas group and theres so many variables in there. I think there’s two real spots where teams will look to fix that problem and that will be deadline and that will be leading into expansion draft. And then you get into said value of player based on what teams can acquire and protect can really change the way things look, we’re going to do what we can to avoid that situation. -Trevor Linden, Vancouver Canucks President of Hockey Ops

Linden joined TSN Vancouver to discuss the upcoming trade deadline and the looming expansion draft. He was asked how will it feel losing a player for nothing to Vegas.

We’ve certainly modeled a lot of different scenarios out. We’re going to do what we can to avoid that situation. Obviously, losing a young player, or any player, would be tough to stomach, so we’re still a ways from getting to where we want to be there. -Linden

Linden would rather make his roster more expansion-friendly but he’s not rushing to make a trade at the deadline. Although, losing a player like Luca Sbisa or Jannik Hansen would be a devastating blow. Linden will try and minimize the damage but won’t force a trade.

Preseason Opponents And Schedule Pretty Much Set

UPDATE 2 (4:41 PM 1/24/17) : After further review, the team is now confirming the dates reported are indeed accurate. They reiterated there is chance the could change, but they are the correct working dates at this moment.

UPDATE (3:28 PM 1/24/17) : Eric Tosi, Golden Knights VP of communications and content, would only confirm the fact that the current plan is to play seven games, three of which at T-Mobile Arena. The dates and opponents mentioned in this article were described as “TBD” and “still a work in progress.”

We knew there would be seven preseason games for the Vegas Golden Knights in preparation of their inaugural season Three at home, three for sure on the road, and one either neutral or away. The picture is starting to clear up thanks to some top notch reporting by Steve Carp.

Depending on the game in China, the first Vegas Golden Knights hockey game will be on September 17th at T-Mobile Arena or the 19th in Colorado.

Either way, the first team to hit the ice against the Golden Knights in Vegas will be the Kings.

Expansion Preparations Coming In Many Forms

The future of the Vancouver Canucks is not looking so bright. With a 36-year-old starting goalie, a pair of 36-year-old twins, and three other key contributors over 30, that 4-5-1 start is a bit ominous.

The middle is no place to be. -Ray Ferraro, TSN Analyst

The former Hartford Whaler was adamant that the Vancouver Canucks should give in and start completely over. Ferraro doesn’t believe a team scoring under two goals a game can, or will, turn it around. So he suggested the Canucks move on from two underperforming defenseman Alex Biega, and Philip Larsen. However, it is believed that Vancouver management will hold on to Biega specifically for expansion considerations.

Because he’s [Biega] under contract for next year, and because you can get him up to the games played threshold, they prefer to expose him.” – Matt Sekeres, TSN

It makes sense and would be a smart move by the Canucks knowing they’ll have to be ultra careful on whom to expose. The franchise is obviously heading for a rebuild and cannot give anything of value to Las Vegas. Not that the Knights are expecting to strike it rich from Vancouver’s unprotected list.
