Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Blue Jackets got their last home game of their seven game stand. Vegas took two penalties in the 1st period and one ended up costing them the first goal of the game. It was the sixth straight game that Vegas allowed the visiting team to score first. Columbus lead 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes.

The Blue Jackets doubled up their lead 2:06 into the 2nd period. Vegas would try and play catch up for the rest of the middle frame. The Golden Knights were awarded two power plays but couldn’t convert. They continued to trail Columbus 2-0.

Vegas struggled again to generate any offense, and Columbus took advantage. The Blue Jackets stretched their lead to 3-0 deep into the 3rd period.

Vegas’ record drops to 24-18-6 and remain with 54 points. The Golden Knights hit the road and next play on Tuesday in Buffalo. Start time is scheduled for 4P. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights just didn’t have it on this night, once again chasing a game after conceding first for the 5th straight game. Offensively they couldn’t generate much against a stingy Columbus defense and the Blue Jackets capitalized on a couple of opportunities. Vegas looked frustrated throughout as they had a hard time getting extended offensive zone time and rarely created more than once chance per possession. It’s a frustrating way to end a homestand that started out so promising. (Analysis by Ken)

The Golden Knights Have Real Flaws Which Are More Important Than Imaginary Ones


  1. They are a sorry ass bunch and should be ashamed of th themselves. They are running into one another can’t wait to get off ice, they played like they had no idea of what their teammates were doing. Their weak excuses etc are shameful. Better start practicing their golf game as their season will be ending come playoff time as they will be watching from home not playing. If that’s their objective they are well on their way. Sorry ken this has all to do with attitude.

  2. Foley

    absolutely pathetic. with 9 key players out injured, basically the Blue Jackets minor leaguers easily shut out the lifeless, listless, disinterested Knights.

    the goaltending is lousy, the line combos are not clicking, complacency has set in for many of them, and it is time for a major shakeup with a couple of big trades.

    even guys like Karlsson and Schmidt are playing poorly.

    so they changed the defensive system for the better, but now the goalies can’t even stop a beach ball.

    with 8 games on the road now, they may be out of a playoff spot by the time they get back home.

    it is time for the front office to earn their keep with a couple of meaningful trades right now.
