Analysis: A wild game at T-Mobile Arena ended with the Golden Knights getting the much needed two points in the standings despite not playing great. Defensively there were plenty of issues, but they rode a hot power play to get back in the game and eventually win it in overtime. The line of Karlsson, Stone, and Pacioretty were just as good as expected and the newest 3rd line was solid but losing Tuch could prove costly. (Analysis by Ken)

    now THAT is how the Knights used to play at home…exciting, come from behind, never say die.

    they still obviously need help on D (Engelland was awful) and better goaltending, but this was a start back in the right direction.

    how they do vs. good teams on this homestand will determine where they finish this year.

    hope that Tuch will be ok.

    PP was clicking tonight but overall it was a very sloppy game by the VGK. Engelland should not be in the lineup anymore. In general D zone coverage was terrible tonight. Tuch out, will not help to solve the 3rd line problem. All the problems we had under Turk are still not solved

    -D
    -Goaltending (part of it is caused by our D)
    – 3rd line
    -Wing depth
    -Possible coaching problem

  3. fire the coach

    now Bruce Boudreau got fired in Minny ! that will teach him not to shutout the Vgk

    that makes it Boudreau, Babcock, Laviolette, Deboer, Gallant, Peters, Montgomery, and Hynes who have all gotten fired this season already. 8 out of 31 bite the dust
