LOS ANGELES KINGS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (16-14-1 33 PTS)

A fairly uninspiring start from both teams ended up getting going as Oscar Lindberg scored his first of the year on a rebound. However, the sloppiness from the beginning continued for Vegas as they struggled to get through the neutral zone with any consistency and ended up giving up five straight goals. The Golden Knights could never get going through the neutral zone and didn’t create nearly enough offense.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS 3 (16-13-1 33 PTS)

Vegas wasted no time jumping all over the Blackhawks scoring just 1:28 in on a power play goal from Reilly Smith. Then, Deryk Engelland added his first goal of the season on a shot from the high slot. Then, Chicago stormed back and scored a pair to even it. It appeared as if Vegas had retaken the lead, but a goalie interference call went against them. A rough Nick Holden turnover led to the Hawks taking the lead, but the Golden Knights stormed back with two goals in 12 seconds. They even survived another goalie interference. Chicago made a late push and hit a post inside the final minute, but Fleury and the Golden Knights hung on.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 WASHINGTON CAPITALS 3 (15-13-1 31 PTS)

An early power play goal got things going for the Golden Knights. Ryan Reaves put home an excellent pass in front of the goal from Cody Eakin. Then the game started to get a bit ugly as the hitting rained down all over the ice. Reaves lit up Tom Wilson, Alex Ovechkin destroyed Tomas Nosek, and William Carrier was hitting everything that moved. During it all, Washington took the lead back. The Golden Knights killed the 5-minute major penalty that sent Reaves to the showers for hitting Tom Wilson. Then. Vegas scored twice in 16 seconds to regain the lead. Nate Schmidt scored late in a 4-minute power play to give the Golden Knights the lead very late in the 3rd and then Schmidt nailed the empty netter to seal it. The game of the year in the NHL to this point.

EDMONTON OILERS 2 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (14-13-1 29 PTS)

The Golden Knights controlled the beginning portion of the 1st period but then Connor McDavid happened. Vegas got it going towards the end of the 2nd period and William Karlsson banked one in off an Oiler’s skate scoring for the fourth game in a row. A giveaway behind the goal led to Edmonton regaining the lead early in the 3rd. Vegas couldn’t muster up enough chances to get one behind Mikko Koskinen.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 VANCOUVER CANUCKS 3 (14-12-1 29 PTS)

The Golden Knights got off to a bit of a slow start allowing a 1st period goal on a delayed penalty, but they really came on as the period wore on. A great shift for the “4th” line earned a goal for William Carrier. Then, a power play goal by Max Pacioretty gave the Golden Knights the lead heading into the 2nd intermission. Vegas surrendered a two-goal lead, but an awesome effort from Reilly Smith on the penalty kill led to a tap-in for William Karlsson for the game-winner.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 8 CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS 3 (13-12-1 27 PTS)

The Golden Knights got off to a hot start taking a 3-0 lead into the intermission. They kept pouring it on eventually leading 8-2. Cody Eakin and Shea Theodore both put up two goals. All this being said, the Golden Knights did not play nearly as well as the score indicated. They allowed a ton of great chances on their own net that were either saved by Fleury or missed by the Blackhawks.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 SAN JOSE SHARKS 0 (12-12-1 25 PTS)

The Golden Knights wasted no time to win this game scoring :14 second in and then three more times in the 1st period. William Karlsson recorded the fastest goal in team history. Max Pacioretty got on the board twice and Colin Miller added a goal for the second straight game. Things got a bit chippy in the 2nd as both Evander Kane and Pete DeBoer were ejected from the game. Alex Tuch added the sixth goal of the game in the 3rd. Marc-Andre Fleury recorded his fourth shutout in his last five home games and his league-leading fifth of the season.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 CALGARY FLAMES (11-12-1 23 PTS)

Four nights ago it was 5-0 after one and 7-0 after two in favor of Calgary. Tied through one, and Vegas took the lead in the 2nd with an Alex Tuch tip in. A 3rd period power play goal from Colin Miller extended the lead to 2-0 and some terrific defense throughout kept the Flames off the board. Fleury’s fourth shutout of the year to give him the league lead.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 ARIZONA COYOTES 2 (10-12-1 21 PTS) – OT

The 1st period was mostly just 10 guys skating along the boards creating nothing offensively, but as the period rolled on the Coyotes started creeping closer and closer to a goal. It finally came late in the 1st, but Vegas responded well with a pair of goals from Tomas Nosek and Max Pacioretty. The Golden Knights had the third goal of the game taken away due to an offside challenge. Then, Arizona scored and another challenge went against Vegas, this time for goalie interference which tied the game at two. The overtime winner came from a freshly onto the ice Max Pacioretty.
