Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


Recap: Without superstar Connor McDavid, Edmonton still managed to score the first goal of the game midway in opening period. Nic Roy tied the contest with 3:02 left in the 1st period.

It was a scoreless second period in Edmonton. Both teams got great goaltending and tight defense to keep things locked up 1-1.

Edmonton broke the tie 6:46 into the 3rd period. Jonathan Marchessault’s 22nd of the season evened the game 2-2 making it a tight finish. After 60 minutes, the game needed an overtime period to decide a victor. Shea Theodore finished the game in OT with his 13th of the season to beat the Oilers 3-2.

Vegas improves to 39-24-8 and maintain sole possession of first place. The team will get a couple of days off to prepare for their game in Minnesota on Thursday night. Game time is scheduled for 5PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It seemed to be headed in the direction of another game where the Golden Knights control play but a few mistake cost them the game. But, a hero stepped up late and his name was Jonathan Marchessault. First, he put one past Koskinen and then in OT his and Karlsson’s forechecking ate up Draisaitl and Bear and set up Theodore for the winner. A heck of a pair of wins back-to-back and the Golden Knights are now in the driver’s seat to win their second division title in three years. (Analysis by Ken)

Nosek Adjusting Well To His New Life Outside Of Hockey


  1. That was all guts in OT. Karlsson and Marchy were relentless in that corner, they never gave up, just blood and guts. They robbed the Oiler and the feed to Theodore was spot on. It was exciting. We have an upside here. Fluery was a stud tonight, he’s game as they come. Stone is waiting in the wings, salavating to come back. Tuch is the question mark. We need him. Ken, anything on the injuries? If we are hitting on all cylinders, we got a shot at the Cup !!

  2. Vgk alberta

    Knights totally outplayed Edm and deserved to win. Unfortunately, Nosek handed them the second goal. But 81 finally woke up out of his slumber and started going to the net.

    Shea (Norris) Theodore did it again. His late game heroics are keeping the Vgk in first place.

    Roy is really doing a great job on that top line.

    But they need Stone, Stephenson, and Tuch to give these guys some help. It is not good to have Merrill at wing playing 5 mins, and wearing the other forwards down in the second night of back to backs.

    now let’s beat Minny, who have really given the Vgk lots of problems with their trapping, boring system. 2-6 vs Minny

  3. Tim

    A win is a win two nail bitters in a row but the hockey Gods were with us. Next big game with the Wild who always give us trouble. Fleury had a good game which I was happy to see.
