Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (27-21-7 61 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights came out hot against Tampa attempting six shots to the Lightning’s one. However, the home team would get on the scoreboard first, midway through the opening period. William Carrier would tie up the game with his sixth goal of the season. Tampa would take the lead again 2-1 heading into the 1st intermission.

The Golden Knights were awarded three power plays in the 2nd period but couldn’t convert and tie the game. Defensively, Vegas limited Tampa to 5 shots and kept them scoreless in the middle frame.

Paul Stastny would tie the game 2-2 early in the final period with his 16th of the season. Unfortunately, Steven Stamkos would give his team the lead 3-2. Tampa would later tack on an empty netter beating Vegas 4-2.

Vegas’ record drops to 27-21-7, sitting on 61 points on the season. The Golden Knights have one more game on the road trip before coming home this Saturday. The team will take on the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 4p. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights played a terrific game, especially at 5-on-5. They took just one penalty and it resulted in just a minute of power play time for the Lightning, another major plus. However, the Lightning were incredibly opportunistic cashing in on just about every dangerous chance they had while the Golden Knights couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with a puck for most of the night. It’s yet another example of a game where the Golden Knights play great but don’t win, just this time with a new head coach. (Analysis by Ken)

    How fantastic this is going since our GMs fired Gallant? I mean at first I was questioning why a fan favorite and guy who has success would get fired like he was, but now after hiring the Sharks former failure in a coach, i have to say this is going great!

      Let’s be real here. DeBoer is just like Gallant. He got fired because it was the only way to shake up the team without having to mess around with the cap. It doesn’t mean either one of them is a failure. The GMs know this. That’s why most of them end up getting new jobs.

      • The move was nothing more than an alarm clock to wake these guys up nothing more nothing less. This was an attitude adjustment which hopefully will result in making the play offs. Who knows they may even get by first round if the stars align. Look what happen last year to Tampa a power house that collapsed.

  2. They were the better team except on the score board. You can’t leave a guy like 91 alone in front better luck next time Things are looking at up and they are playing like they are interested in winning – definitely has been an attitude adjustment.

    face facts… the Vgk goaltending is mediocre this season. 21st in the league in save % is unacceptable.

    It goes without question that Vgk outplayed Tampa in that game, but the poor shooting of Pacioretty, missing open nets, and the weak goaltending of Fleury……yes, they were deflections, but one went right thru his legs, and another was over his arm simply because he is too small for today’s ideal goalie prototype.

    the little acrobatic goalie is not what you want in today’s NHL. You want the big guy who blocks pucks, absorbs pucks, controls his rebounds, handles the puck well behind his net and passes to his dmen, and gets lots of whistles and stoppages when his team turns it over and is tired and hemmed in to their zone. and plays a boring but effective game.

    the walrus in goal, i.e. Bishop, Kuemper etc

    Fleury is well liked, still can shine occasionally but less often these days, but clearly on the downside of his career……….sort of like Lundqvist in NYR

    and Subban is a poor backup goaltender who embarrassed himself, the team and everyone who watched that pathetic display at home recently. Like Toronto where it is Andersen or bust, in Vegas it is Fleury or bust. neither team has a backup worthy of wearing an NHL jersey.

      update——

      looks like I had it right on. The Leafs just traded for backup goalie Jack Campbell of the LA Kings, along with kyle Clifford. after another stinker loss by Hutchinson

      The Knights certainly could have used Campbell. If this season ends up with no playoffs, Subban will share a good portion of the blame.
