Recap: For the first time since 2019, the Golden Knights hosted a playoff game at T-Mobile Arena. Minnesota and Vegas faced off for their ninth game this season but this time it meant much more. 

Vegas came out firing the puck on Wild goaltender Cam Talbot. The Golden Knights had two power plays and several strong chances but couldn’t get one past the goal line. 

Locked in a scoreless tie Minnesota’s offense shot more on Marc-Andre Fleury but the Vegas goalie got in front of all 13 2nd period shots. 

The 3rd period was back and forth with both teams getting chances on net. Both goaltenders were the difference makers and forced a Game 1 overtime period. 

Minnesota ended the game 3:20 into overtime to steal Game 1 in Vegas. 

The Golden Knights trail Minnesota 1-0 in their first-round seven game series. Game 2 is scheduled for Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena. Puck drop is 7 PM PT (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights came out and did exactly what they wanted to do for most of the game. They controlled the run of play, they created plenty of shots, and they got incredible goaltending. But, a trio of old demons popped up and the Golden Knights could not outrun them. First, they couldn’t score despite controlling the puck consistently. Next, they have untimely turnovers. Finally, the Wild. The Golden Knights are in a hole now. (Analysis by Ken)

Analysis: What a tremendous hockey game that was. The Golden Knights were behind the eight-ball from the jump playing down three skaters but they came out and took it to COL early in the game. They played with excellent defensive structure and played through the adversity created by their front office. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough but it’s certainly nothing to hang their heads over.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 ST LOUIS BLUES 1 (39-13-2 80 PTS)

Game recaps and Periscopes are brought to you by Kondler and Associates CPAs. Free tax consultation for SinBin fans!

Recap: The Golden Knights got off to a great start against the Blues. Reilly Smith opened the scoring with his third goal in three consecutive games. Later in the period Chandler Stephenson shot a shorthanded laser to stretch the lead. After the opening twenty minutes Vegas held a 2-0 lead.

Analysis: For the first 2 periods, the Golden Knights completely outclassed the Blues in just about every phase of the game. St. Louis had a bit of pushback in the 3rd but Vegas held strong and snuffed out any thought of a comeback. Play like that, and St. Louis won’t win a game in a playoff series against the Golden Knights. (Analysis by Ken)

Analysis: The Golden Knights looked like they were cruising to their first win in regulation at the Xcel Energy Center through the first 50 minutes of the game.

But then the wheels fell off again in the 3rd as Vegas lost track of the best player on the ice… twice. Vegas wins it in OT, but the concern of a potential playoff matchup looms. (Analysis by Ken)

MINNESOTA WILD 6 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 (36-13-2 74 PTS)

Game recaps and Periscopes are brought to you by Kondler and Associates CPAs. Free tax consultation for SinBin fans!

Recap: It was a wildly entertaining 1st period in Minnesota. The Wild opened the scoring but Vegas would respond a minute later. First Shea Theodore tied the game and fellow defenseman Alec Martinez gave the Golden Knights a 2-1 lead on the power play. Both d-men recorded their 8th goals of the season. Minnesota tied the game but Vegas wasn’t done scoring. In his first NHL game, Golden Knights prospect Peyton Krebs threaded the needle and set Alex Tuch up for the go-ahead goal.

The high scoring continued into the middle frame. Mark Stone scored his 21st goal of the season to give his team a 4-2 lead. Minnesota would get one back but Jonathan Marchessault gave Vegas another two-goal cushion.

Minnesota scored midway through the final period and they weren’t finished. The Golden Knights gave up two goals in the final two minutes to blow their lead and lose in regulation.

Vegas’ record drops to 36-13-2 after their disappointing 6-5 defeat in Minnesota. The Golden Knights and Wild will face off for the last time on Wednesday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 5P PT.  (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It was a wide-open style of game, one the Golden Knights would usually like to avoid against the Wild but they were able to be opportunistic when their chances came and buried a bundle of them to head into the 3rd period up a pair of goals. The Wild broke through for three, including a pair late, in a game where the goaltending let the Golden Knights down. Very tough loss and a rare one for the Golden Knights. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 COLORADO AVALANCHE 2 (35-11-2 72 PTS)

Game recaps and Periscopes are brought to you by Kondler and Associates CPAs. Free tax consultation for SinBin fans!

Recap: The Golden Knights jumped on the Avalanche immediately in a highly anticipated game. William Karlsson scored :10 seconds into the game setting the tone for Vegas. Colorado fought back and eventually tied it at up 1-1. Marc-Andre Fleury was sharp in net stopping several quality chances from the Avalanche.

The scoring picked up from both teams in the middle frame. The Golden Knights regained their one-goal lead with a power play goal from Max Pacioretty. Captain Mark Stone gave Vegas a 3-1 lead scoring a nifty goal off Colorado’s goaltender Devan Dubnyk’s rear end. The Avalanche pulled closer later in the period trailing 3-2 after 40 minutes expired.

Max Pacioretty scored :55 seconds into the 3rd period to extend Vegas’ lead. Jonathan Marchessault ended Colorado’s chance to come back with a late empty-net goal. In net Fleury frustrated the Avalanche stopping every shot taken in the final period.

Vegas’ record improves to 35-11-2 after their 5-2 victory against Colorado. The West’s top two teams will face off again in another important game on May, 2nd. The Golden Knights take a quick trip south to play the Coyotes for two games in Arizona. Friday night’s game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights shocked the Avs with an instant goal from Karlsson and continued to push early, but the Avs stormed back and took over for a good portion of the 1st and early 2nd. Opportunistic play, strong puck management, and great defensive sticks in all three zones helped slow Colorado down. Then in the 3rd, the Golden Knights locked it down brilliantly. This isn’t the fill-strength Avs, but the way the Golden Knights beat them tonight can work over a seven-game series.(Analysis by Ken)
