Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website

BOSTON BRUINS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (25-20-7 57 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights couldn’t have gotten off to a better start in Boston. Mark Stone gave his team a 1-0 lead 1:24 into the game. The Bruins would tie the game ten minutes later, ending the 1st period locked up 1-1.

Penalties plagued the Golden Knights in the early periods, allowing 5 power plays in the first 40 minutes. However, Vegas would work through the penalty kill, and regain the lead with a Power Play goal by Nic Hague. The 21-year-old gave his team the 2-1 edge on his first career NHL goal.

The Bruins came out hot to start the 3rd period and tied the game early on. Boston would take the lead 3-2 in the middle of the period. Vegas would get a few chances late in the period but wouldn’t convert the tying goal. The Bruins handed Vegas a 3-2 loss.

Vegas’ record drops to 25-20-7 and sit in the first Wild Card spot in the Western Conference. The team will take a ten-day break and next hit the ice on January 31st in Carolina. Game time is scheduled for 430P. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: A little help from a soft goal got the Golden Knights off on the right foot, but penalty trouble derailed any extended success in the first two periods. All in all the Golden Knights didn’t play a terrible game, but it certainly wasn’t good enough to beat one of the league’s best teams on the road.  (Analysis by Ken)

    the 3rd line Ken, that’s why. they were all MINUS 2, Eakin , Tuch and Carrier

    Eakin has even dragged down and slowed down his wingers to lazy levels of play.

    when they return on Jan 31, Eakin had better be long gone from this team.

  2. Walt T

    Hard to disagree with Burt as line 3 can’t even make a pass or two before an automatic turnover and not even a sniff of a shot on goal. The problem exists no matter who plays on it. The team is treading water and falling to the minus mediocre level fast. Pretty sad to see the 2nd and 3rd stars as I remember a few horrible plays by both leading to goals. The DeBrusk goal was the dagger as #5 couldn’t keep up with him in what seemed like a simple play. They were outplaying Boston in the 3rd, and then a simple rush steals the game as goal number 3 was only a matter time.

  3. Goal 3 was a gift the guy was standing there with no knight in spite.

  4. Tim

    You give Boston that many power plays is a death wish. To many turnovers you can’t beat good teams playing that sloppy. After the break another road trip which the could be more problems. How to fix the defense and third line will be tough to do with our cap space. What do you get if you trade Eakins his cap space is about it. His one goal isn’t going to have teams knocking on the door. I think the trend of win a couple lose a couple will continue which is frustrating to all of us.
