Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website

LOS ANGELES KINGS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (36-23-8 80 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the LA Kings in pursuit of a franchise best nine-game win streak. The game didn’t begin as planned for Vegas as Anze Kopitar netted two goals in the 1st period. The Golden Knights struggled to get going on offense and trailed 2-0 after the opening 20 minutes.

The Kings stretched their lead to 3-0 midway through the 2nd period. The Golden Knights were awarded a power play and quickly took advantage. Shea Theodore wristed a shot into LA’s net getting within two. The Kings got their three goal lead back late in the period scoring a power play goal of their own. The visiting team held a 4-1 edge after 40 minutes.

Trailing by three goals the Golden Knights attempted to make a comeback on multiple 3rd period power plays. However, LA continued to frustrate Vegas and killed off the penalties. The Kings closed out the game 4-1 and ended the Golden Knights eight-game win streak.

Vegas’ record drops to 36-23-8 but still remain in 1st place with 80 points. The Golden Knights get a day off and prepare for the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. Game is scheduled for 7p. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The 1st period blues struck again as the Golden Knights allowed a goal on the first shot for the second game in a row. From there the 1st period didn’t get much better and ended 2-0. Then, Vegas turned it on, but Cal Petersen was terrific in the goal. Golden Knights certainly didn’t play well enough to win, but 4-1 is a bit cruel. (Analysis by Ken)

  1. Ken you were very kind regarding your comments. They didn’t have the step and their passing left alot to be desired. They were not prepared and LA was much more anxious to win and beat them and that they did. Flower was weak and had alot of company. Let’s hope it is not contagious. Sad night at T-Mobile

    • I’m pretty compassionate during an 8 game win streak.

      • Ken my man that sounds like a pretty weak excuse and one the prior bench management would use. They got beat pure and simple because they were out played and weak defensively. If l recall didn’t LA play the night before.? Call it like it was a sad performance.

    Holden standing still not knowing where to be during both Kopitar goals. How are you going to let the opposing teams best player camp by himself in front of the net with no one within 3ft of him? That set the tone for the rest of the game.

  3. TJ

    Holden was on the ice for all 4 LA goals.. He did not clear rebounds or tie up his man in front. He just stood there, reacted too late, and then fished the puck out of the net 4 times. He clearly needs to be scratched from the next game as a statement.

    Fleury played great in the previous game, and then got badly outplayed by a rookie backup netminder at the other end tonight. His inconsistent season continues. Lehner will hopefully be in net vs NJ.

    McNabb is doing a lousy job on the PK…he is supposed to block shots from the right circle, the one timers, and he is also supposed to retrieve and ice the puck so they can get fresh players on….But his clumsiness and slow reactions result in him not getting the puck out of the zone , and then a goal quickly ensues, just like last night.

    He gets more ice time than anyone on the PK, and it is a big weakness for the team this season, being near the bottom of the league.

    The poor PK will hurt this team’s chances in the playoffs.

    They changed to an aggressive, chase the puck PK under DeBoer, but it has not gotten any better. He had the top PK in SJ, but in Vegas the penalty killing forwards at his disposal are smaller and less defensive minded…when was the last time you saw Vgk forwards diving in front of shots from the point on the PK? maybe Nosek, but you ain’t gonna see 19 or 71 or 26 blocking shots.

    they need more grinding forwards like Roy on the PK, and more Martinez on d blocking shots and clearing pucks, and less of #3

  5. Tim

    Hockey is always a battle anyone can beat anyone. L.A. took it to us and we had no answer. Tonight we play the Devils let’s hope for a little more puck luck. Stone out for the month is a blow can we recover time will tell. We have a lot of conference games coming up on the road and that we’ll make us or break us.
