VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 MINNESOTA WILD 2 (19-13-5 43 PTS)

Recap: Vegas hosted the Minnesota Wild a team with past success at the T-Mobile arena. In three previous games in Las Vegas, the Wild were 3-0.

The opening period was a back and fourth contest but turned quickly in favor for the Wild with about four minutes remaining. Vegas was called for three late penalties resulting in a power play goal for Minnesota. After 20 minutes, the Golden Knights trailed 1-0.

Chandler Stephenson would continue to impress his new teammates tying up the game with his 6th goal of the season, and his 3rd as a Golden Knight. Shea Theodore would give Vegas the lead on a nice rush with :10 seconds left in the 2nd period.

Tomas Nosek added to Vegas’ lead with his 5th goal of the season stretching his team’s lead to 3-1. Minnesota would get one with their goalie pulled but couldn’t find the equalizer in the dying seconds.

Vegas’ record improves to 19-13-5 with 43 points. The team will take a quick divisional road trip to play Vancouver and San Jose. They’ll face off against the Canucks on Thursday night. Game time is scheduled for 7PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Vegas did well to overcome some 1st period adversity. A pair of horrendous penalty calls set the Golden Knights back as they headed to the 1st intermission down a goal. However, they put together back-to-back solid periods and earned a much needed win against a team they’ve struggled mightily against. (Analysis by Ken)

    didnt see game but nice win. Ice time for 3rd line looked really low….what is your take as to why? Does Tuch only play well in NY and N Jersey perhaps ?!?

    • They didn’t have a terrific game tonight but they certainly weren’t bad. It’s going to go that way sometimes especially when there’s lots of penalties.

    As we know the Wild are a tough out they play hard and have had our number. The win was nice the switch on the D from man to zone I think has made a big difference.
    A word about our latest version of a Vegas Golden Misfit Chandler Stephenson what a job he’s doing now that he’s settled in the second line. When the two Cody’s come back I don’t know what they’ll do.

    When pucks go in, and just about everyone is playing well, it’s a nice problem to have wondering what to do with all the centers when all are healthy. I am a fan of Cody Glass, however, Chandler Stephenson should be left exactly where he is until he proves unworthy. The guy is fast, strong with the puck, has a history of very few penalties, and is finding the net playing with two excellent linemates. From the little we have seen, Stephenson is simply better than the two Codys right now. Coach is going to move people around on lines 3 and 4 and none of us will likely be happy. Some may have to sit a while, some will be out of position, and some may be in Chicago a while. It would be a mistake to tamper with this team right now as it is evident they are starting to feel it.
