VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 ANAHEIM DUCKS 5 (34-22-8 76 PTS) – OT

Recap: The Golden Knights were on a back-to-back trying to extend their five game winning streak Vegas against the Anaheim Ducks. Vegas got on the board first on newly recalled Patrick Brown’s 1st goal as a Golden Knight. The Ducks tied the game on a redirection :02 left in the opening period to make it a 1-1.

The 2nd period featured multiple quality chances for both teams but neither could convert. Malcolm Subban and Anaheim’s John Gibson stood on their heads making some magnificent saves. The Ducks would eventually get one passed Subban to take a 2-1 edge. Mark Stone and Alec Martinez connected for a beautiful one-timer to tie the game 2-2. William Karlsson’s 11th of the year gave Vegas a 3-2 lead heading into the second intermission.

Anaheim tied the game at three :21 seconds into the final period. The Golden Knights regained the lead 4-3 on Karlsson’s second of the game. The center would add a third goal registering his third career hat trick. The Ducks got desperate and heavily attacked the Golden Knights scoring two goals to tie the game 5-5. The game needed an overtime to decide a winner. Shea Theodore snapped a game winner late in overtime, beating the Ducks 6-5.

Vegas’ record improves to 34-22-8 and remain in first place in the Pacific Division. The Golden Knights get a couple of days off and hit the ice next on Wednesday night for a divisional battle against the Edmonton Oilers. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights did well to gut it out through a crazy game in a tough back-to-back and three in four situation on the road. Despite allowing five goals, Malcolm Subban was terrific making a number good saves to keep the game close. Mark Stone played one of his best games as a Golden Knight setting up goals on four different occasions including two of William Karlsson’s three. A nice win in a bad spot keeps the streak alive.

    Exciting game, and good that they won and stayed in 1st place, but what happened to the supposed shutdown pair of 3-88….They were simply awful, giving ground and backing in, in the final minutes and both the 4th and 5th goals were scored on them. The whole D corps had a lot of problems tonight, but one thing for sure, they are just too soft in front of their own net. They play the puck instead of the man. But the dmen did score 2 goals including the game winner, so I guess it is run and gun hockey now. They have to tighten it up defensively or it will be a short playoff run. That includes the forwards who did a poor job of clogging up the neutral zone in the final minutes.

    Good to see Karlsson finally snap out of his slump. Stone is a great passer.

    the backup goaltending is still a nervous adventure. maybe they should hire the Zamboni driver to play goal.

    I expect one or 2 small deals to add depth on Monday morning.

    So all these guys we called up before the deadline are eligible for the playoffs correct?

  3. Suban is an enigma. He makes spectacular saves and lets some in that look like your grandmother could stop. It would make such a difference if he could get out of the 80 percenters and into the 90s. Maybe asking too much.

  4. The team as a whole are slow learners, they do it all the time , they just can’t sit on a lead regardless what it is. They demonstrate this situation time and time again. They were lucky to win last night. I am certain the coaches see this and must be frustrated to no end – it is just plain stupid. When they play like they want to win they are nearly impossible to beat – then they seem to forget what got them there. They excell when offensively minded and stink when defensively mind. They just don’t have the ability or personnel to sit on a lead period. They excel when they play their game – they even Express that in conversation – apparently they have short memories once they get the lead. Opponents obviously recognize this weakness and in some regard sit back and wait until it happens if they are loosing because they know it will. History repeats itself.
