Recap: It was take two for the Golden Knights and Ducks at an empty T-Mobile Arena. Marc-Andre Fleury got his first start in net and stopped all six shots from Anaheim. Both teams had several quality chances but each goaltender were flawless. After the opening twenty minutes the game was locked in a scoreless tied.

Anaheim took the first lead of the game 7:45 into the second period. The Golden Knights defense broke down allowing for an easy 3-on-1 goal for the Ducks. Vegas couldn’t generate much offensively but took 11 shots on Anaheim goalie John Gibson. The home team trailed 1-0 heading into the second intermission.

Fleury kept Vegas in the game with a couple of strong saves in the third period. The Golden Knights were awarded their first power play of the game but didn’t get a shot on net. William Karlsson finally got his team on the board, tying the game 1-1 with 1:22 left in the game. The Swede’s goal forced an overtime period.

With their 2-1 overtime victory the Golden Knights improve their record to (2-0-0) and pick up four points in their first two games. Vegas next hits the ice Monday night against the Arizona Coyotes. Game is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights really didn’t seem to have it in this game, but in the dying embers of the game, with the goalie out of the net, a perfect tic-tac-toe play finished by William Karlsson tied the game. In OT, Mark Stone did what Mark Stone does. Thievery off the draw then a beautiful 2-on-1 pass and the rest is history. How in the world did Vegas win that game? Who cares? They did. Oh, and Fleury is awesome still. (Analysis by Ken)

    MAF showed he still has it and he should still be the #1 goalie. Not a very good game overall though but happy for the win

    Ken, was this game an example where the Ducks coach made changes from game 1 to 2 and PDB did not, sort of like in the bubble where he refused to change the game plan after the Chicago series? Or was it something else? He said he liked their game better tonight but not scoring until 58 minutes is gone isn’t a recipe for continued success.

    • I see what you are saying but this early in the season they are just trying to figure out how to put together halfway decent looking games on consecutive nights. I’m not willing to go there yet, but I’ve got my eyes on it.

    Fleury was fantastic and his big saves are amazing to see. I have seen Stone do more in these two games and glad to see it. Hope it continues. I liked Patch’s reaction when he made the OT goal. I am curious about Pietrangelo. He may be getting his sea legs with the team, as he seemed up and down in the game.

    Little emotion and no physicality, MAF kept the boys in the game until they could pull off some magic!!! Two solid games by our goalies. That is what I take away from these two games. Also, perhaps because we have beaten the ducks 13 out of 15 games, led to emotionless play. But a win is a win!!!!!

    Flower after the game and in his interview you could see the self satisfaction on his face. He played well he knew it and game on. With this schedule of playing every other day for maybe the only time in your lifetime your going to witness maybe the greatest goalie combo of all time. I’m going to sit back and enjoy both these guys performing there magic.

  7. Rob Smith

    Flower is still the man! Don’t get me wrong, happy to have Panda in L.V. But, I’m happy not to have to root for Fleury on another team. Should be an entertaining year with both goaltenders!

  8. Some interesting posts and Ken – Fluery was awesome and other posts stating how well he played. Are these the same people who wanted him gone when mgt signed the elite walrus who is out of shape. FLUERY is much more athletic and agile than the walrus ever though of being or could be. The thursday opener proved that in spades as the walrus flopped around like a fish out of water. Yes l know it’s only two games but could become very interesting.
