Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


Recap: The Golden Knights would take on their rival San Jose Sharks for the last time this season. Evander Kane would take an early 1st period penalty giving Vegas a quick power play. San Jose would kill off the two minutes but Erik Karlsson would take a delay of game penalty late in the period giving Vegas another man-advantage. The Golden Knights wouldn’t convert on their second PP opportunity and the game was scoreless after the opening 20 minutes.

Vegas would get their third power play opportunity with 8:53 left in the 2nd period, however the Sharks would kill the 5-on-4 again. Paul Statsny finally broke the scoreless tie with his 9th goal of the year giving his team a 1-0 lead after two periods played.

Logan Couture tied the game 1-1 early in the 3rd period slinging the puck over Malcolm Subban. The Golden Knights would regain the lead on a nasty wrist shot by Shea Theodore. Jonathan Marchessault tapped in a third goal for Vegas late in the 3rd period. Reilly Smith drove the puck to the net and snuck a perfect pass to Marchessault for the 3-1 lead. Vegas fought off a 6-on-4 disadvantage with time winding down and secured their 3-1 victory in San Jose.

Vegas’ record improves to 20-13-6 as they head home for their second of a back-to-back. The Golden Knights will host the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow night for their last game before the Christmas break. Puck drops at 7PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights played a solid game in their own end through the first 40 minutes of hockey keeping every chance to the outside. Then, after scoring one they had a few breakdowns and let San Jose back in the game. However, the response from Vegas was excellent coming at the Sharks in waves and scoring twice to seal a third win against the Sharks in 2019-20. (Analysis by Ken)

Carp: Well, Well, Look Who’s In First Place




  1. Walt T

    Jumbo Joe tries to steal another one (not a major, and now not a minor).
    Our guys stayed calm and didn’t react to the cheap shots (save that for another time).
    Dell stood on his head, but thankfully 3 got through.
    Zykov out when Cody Glass returns please (someday Cody will be a center).
    Subban eliminating the cheap ones, and becoming a reliable back up (huge).

  2. San Hose say

    the league continues to cheat for the pet Snarks. Even though they had to change several rules this summer to try to make up for the 3 series cheatfest last playoff season, they still keep coming up with new teal favoritism. Previous SJ game they gave St Louis a penalty for playing without a helmet, and now this phantom call for weirdo Thornton’s acting job.

    It is getting so bad that opposing coaches should be given a coaches’ challenge for almost ANY call vs the teal cheaters.
