Recap: The Golden Knights got off to another sluggish start allowing the King’s to score first in back to back games. Los Angeles continued to pressure Vegas’ defensive zone and eventually took a 2-0 lead late in the 1st period. 

William Karlsson cut the lead in half with his 9th goal of the season midway through the 2nd period. The King’s regained their two-goal lead five minutes later. After forty minutes LA held a 4-1 lead.

The Golden Knights offense began to generate more it the 3rd period. Shea Theodore scored his sixth of the year to get Vegas within two. However, the Golden Knights couldn’t get any closer and fell 4-2 to the Kings. 

Vegas’ record drops to 24-9-1 with their 4-2 defeat to LA. The Golden Knights have a quick turnaround as they host the Minnesota Wild tomorrow night. The game against the Wild is scheduled for 7:30 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights just were not crisp in this one. They hung around in the game for a while but a couple of missplays by Fleury really sunk the ship. Vegas charged back a bit but the penalty bug put an end to that. Brush it off, hope the injuries and the suspensions aren’t too bad, and don’t let it turn into back-to-back. (Analysis by Ken)

Film Breakdown: VGK’s Dominance When The Opposing Team Pulls Their Goalie


  1. Pistol Pete

    Attended the game. Can see why they did want to expose Kolesar to waivers. He has size, speed and finesse which was more apparent for me seeing him live. What it ever translates into as far as scoring is yet to be determined. Thought VGK played well enough to win in spite of some mistakes like allowing a breakaway on that first goal but it just didn’t work out that way. Many high danger shots that did not make it into the net.

    • sb

      I agree size and speed. Finesse …….. absolutely not. Deadhands AHL’er. Zero finesse.

      • Pistol Pete

        Finesse I think I meant anticipation in making a play which I saw last night where attending a live game where you can see all the ice. At just 23 his scoring should improve going forward. Defensive sticks in the area of the net are just so good in the NHL. I realize Kolesar has had numerous high danger chances with open shots and did not beat the goaltender. It would surprise me if the coaches are not working on this. Carrier is another guy with size and speed who can’t get to the next level in scoring. It will be interesting to see if Kolesar remains mired in a similar situation. I hope not.

    • Frank

      Kolesar has had multiple grade A scoring chances and has one goal. Not good enough. Yes, he has the size and speed….. but that does not matter when you can’t put the puck in the net on a consistent basis. We could definitely use an upgrade in his place.

      • Daryl

        Let’s be fair here… look at last year’s playoff team. They had plenty of grade A chances and had issues putting the puck in the net. We had the same issues this year with star players on the PP. There is still hope for Kolesar and I would still rather have him than Reaves

  2. Pistol Pete

    Glass went 1G/1A/+3 in tonight’s Silver Knights win. Was on the ice for all three goals. Looks like me may see him back tomorrow night, not because of his performance tonight necessarily but to fill the roster.

  3. Pistol Pete

    Shots VGK 42-30 including 7 by Petro including one particularly high danger one with enough time remaining. Just did not make it in.

  4. Pistol Pete

    Petro’s skill level is a sight to behold when you see him live.

  5. Pistol Pete

    PK was strong tonight killing all five including Stephenson’s major.

  6. thomas pilkington

    Indeed, not crisp….actually no jump at all. Looked like Wild Bill, Nosek, Martinez and Kolesar were good most of the night…..not so much anyone else. Tough one tonight but doable….liking the Special team play

  8. DOC (Go Knights Go)

    Is Flurey ok?

    Tired? Age? Hope not.

    Lots of goals given up last few games!

    Panda needs a good one tonight against the tuff Wild!

    • Daryl

      MA definitely had a bad game. That could be all it was. I believe his last outing he was pretty sharp. His first game against COL he gave up scrap goals but if I recall his first 3 he had no chance what so ever. I’m glad to see he is given a chance to rest instead of a chance to redeem like they tried with COL

  9. sb

    No one complaining about Lehner today. What would be better for the VGK? A $9 mil All-Star D-Man or a $7 mil All-Star center. MGT sure missed their chance last July.

    • Daryl

      You are correct. That all-star defenseman was a -2. Not blaming him for anything just saying that #1 Center would have been more beneficial

      • Pistol Pete

        The test will be the post season and if Petro is a difference maker.

  10. goalie trade

    Fleury was pathetic on those demoralizing goals #3 and 4… he looked like the Fleury of old Pitt days in the playoffs vs Flyers. Bad soft goals then caused him to lose his job to Murray

    Cal Petersen is 3-0 vs VGK at T-mobile arena, and he usually makes close to 40 saves in those wins. Fleury was having a great season, but last night derailed things bigtime

    Fleury threw an anger fit in the hallway, and rightfully so, mad at himself.

  11. Tim

    Fleury has kept us in it but I notice since Lehner has come back his effectiveness has declined. Is he troubled management may be favoring Lehner hence his performance is declining? You would think it would be the other way and he’d up his game. I don’t really know how Lehner is health wise be it physical or mental but if he’s fine I could see Fleury going back to the Penguins free up that money and get a quality center. Ken you may be right Fleury has served his purpose this year and once were guaranteed a playoff spot no need for two goalies. Vegas is in a win now mode and this team although good is not a Stanley Cup team.

  12. goalie trade

    Roy clearly needs to be replaced with a legit center. He is ok defensively, but is a total zero in the offensive end. The 3rd line is Tuch all by his lonesome.

    • Pistol Pete

      It’s my guess Glass will prove more effective than Roy ultimately. I see Ken’s point about Roy’s synergy with Tuch, I just want to believe that despite Glass’s less than stellar transition from the Juniors to the NHL (he’s only played 9 AHL games) that he’s going to develop into a dynamite top six center.
