NEW YORK RANGERS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (29-18-3, 61 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights were looking for their first win of the road trip with a stop in New York City to face the Rangers. Vegas came out strong in the first period, driving to the net and outshooting New York. The Rangers heated up in the backend of the period and took a two-goal lead before breaking for the first intermission.

Phil Kessel cut the Rangers’ lead in half early in the middle frame. Vegas was awarded two power plays in the period but couldn’t take advantage of their four minutes of a man advantage. After 40 minutes New York held a 2-1 edge.

Vegas kept pushing in the final period, but New York scored the backbreaker with five minutes remaining. The Rangers also added an empty net goal that the Golden Knights were unable to recover from.

The Golden Knight’s record drops to 29-18-3 losing to the Rangers 4-1 in New York. Vegas will jump right back on the ice tomorrow against the New York Islanders. Puck drop is scheduled for 4:30 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The age-old hockey story of opportunistic vs inopportunistic. The Golden Knights played well in the 1st period but they found themsevles down two because they couldn’t bury a chance. As the game continued, VGK’s offense slowed down and the chances came fewer and further between. They couldn’t muster up more than one and that means a three game losing streak, a drop to 3rd place in the division, and a 1-5-1 record since losing Mark Stone. (Analysis by Ken)

NEW JERSEY DEVILS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (29-17-3, 61 PTS) – OT

Recap: The Golden Knights continued their six-game road trip with a matchup against the New Jersey Devils. New Jersey jumped ahead 3:58 into the game but Vegas was able to weather the storm and hold it to a 1-0 Devils lead after 20 minutes of action.

Vegas’ offense warmed up in the middle frame, tallying two goals in a three-minute span. The Golden Knights turned the table and carried a 2-1 advantage into the second intermission.

The game tightened up in the final period making it difficult for New Jersey to generate many chances. However, late in the game the Devils tied the game on a 6-on-5 forcing an overtime period. Ben Hutton committed a tripping penalty in sudden death to give New Jersey a power play. The Devils completed the comeback and won 3-2 in OT. 

The Golden Knights record drops 29-17-3 losing to the Devils 3-2 in OT. Next, Vegas will take on the New York Rangers on Friday evening. Puck drop is scheduled for 4 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights played the style of road game you set out to play, especially when you are struggling. They were hard on their sticks, good along the wall, had strong puck support, and got great goaltending. They just wound up letting in two fluky goals and then got beat by a superhero play from Jack Hughes. Such a rough loss for a team that needed a win, but a point is so much better than coming out empty-handed. (Analysis by Ken)

ARIZONA COYOTES 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (29-17-2, 60 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights traveled to Arizona for a battle with the Coyotes. The home team jumped ahead first 1:59 into the contest. Vegas had a chance to tie the game on the power play but Paul Cotter committed a penalty that negated the man advantage. After 20 minutes Vegas trailed 1-0.

Arizona doubled their lead early in the middle frame. The Coyotes ripped a shot by Logan Thompson to give themselves a 2-0 edge. Arizona committed some costly penalties in the period and Phil Kessel took notice. The Iron Man collected his 8th goal of the season to bring his team within one. 

Trailing 2-1, the Golden Knights made a final push but the Coyotes regained their two-goal lead midway through the 3rd period. With five minutes left in the game, coach Bruce Cassidy pulled his goalie which led to Arizona’s 4th and final goal. The Golden Knights lost 4-1 and left Tempe empty-handed. 

The Golden Knights’ record drops to 29-17-2 falling to the Coyotes 4-1. Vegas will continue the road trip next in New Jersey on Tuesday. Puck drop against the Devils is scheduled for 4:30 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The first few minutes of each period were a big problem and that put them in a hole. From there, Arizona read the book on how to beat the Golden Knights and they put it into action at 5-on-5. When the other team has good gaps and make VGK forecheck, they just can’t seem to generate with any consistency. It happened again, and Clayton Keller did the rest. That loss really sucks because it erases last night’s big win. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 WASHINGTON CAPITALS 2 (29-16-2, 60 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Washington Capitals looking to break their three-game losing streak. Vegas’ offense came out hot scoring two goals in the opening 7:36 of the game. Alec Martinez wristed in his 1st goal of the season and Nic Roy added his 9th. After 20 minutes the Golden Knights carried a 2-0 lead into the 1st intermission.

Vegas’ offensive continued firing in the middle frame. Michael Amadio, Byron Froese and Paul Cotter all scored 2nd period goals to give the Golden Knights a commanding 5-0 advantage. The Capitals scored late in the period to break up Logan Thompson’s shutout bid. After 40 minutes the local team took a 5-1 lead into the third period.

Cotter tallied his second goal of the game to regain VGK’s five-goal edge. However, the Capitals got one back later in the frame. The Golden Knights ended their three-game with a 6-2 victory over the Capitals.

The Golden Knights’ record improves to 29-16-2 defeating the Capitals 6-2. Vegas will hit the road for the next six games beginning tomorrow in Arizona. Puck drop against the Coyotes is scheduled for 5 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights came out and smoked the Capitals from the second the puck dropped. VGK flew through the neutral zone opening up plenty of chances off the rush and extended zone time. Defensively the gap control was excellent keeping the Capitals from being able to generate much of anything until the game was well in hand. Excellent game from VGK (also a horrendous game from Washington.) (Analysis by Ken)

DETROIT RED WINGS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (28-16-2, 58 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights were trying to snap their two-game losing streak by hosting the Detroit Red Wings. Detroit got off to a quick start scoring on a tipped pass that VGK goalie Adin Hill couldn’t get to in time. Late in the period, Alex Pietrangelo evened the score at 1-1.

Detroit regained their one-goal lead early in the middle frame after Nic Hague committed a tripping penalty. Midway through the 2nd period the Red Wings extended their lead to 3-1, frustrating fans at T-Mobile Arena.

Vegas attempted a comeback in the final period, but their offense continued to struggle. Detroit blocked several shots in key moments to suffocate VGK down the stretch. William Karlsson made it a one-goal score with 0:47 left in but Vegas couldn’t find the game-tying goal. On the road, the Red Wings handed the heavy-favorited Golden Knights their third straight loss.

The Golden Knights’ record drops to 28-16-2 losing to the Red Wings 3-2. Vegas will next hit the ice on Saturday evening against the Washington Capitals. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Different game but similar story. Inability to score first followed by a lack of forechecking pressure, and an unwillingness to get to ice in front of the goal. (Analysis by Ken)

DALLAS STARS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 0 (28-15-2, 58 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted former coach Pete DeBoer and the Dallas Stars for an MLK Day matinee. The Stars opened the scoring 5:45 into the 1st period and held on to a 1-0 lead after twenty minutes of play.

Dallas fought off several 2nd period attacks from Vegas, keeping the Golden Knights off the board for the second straight period. The Stars extended their lead to 2-0 before heading into the 2nd intermission.

The Stars extended their advantage in the final period to 4-0. The Golden Knights just couldn’t get their offense moving enough to get one by Dallas’ goalie Jake Oettinger.

The Golden Knights’ record drops to 28-15-2 losing to Stars 4-0. Vegas will try and break their losing streak on Thursday night against the Detroit Red Wings. Puck drop vs. Detroit is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights played exactly the way you cannot play against a DeBoer team. Couldn’t find a way to get their forecheck going and it led to a listless performance the entire night. Very poor game. (Analysis by Ken)

EDMONTON OILERS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (28-14-2, 58 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the high-powered Edmonton Oilers for their first of two matchups at T-Mobile Arena. Edmonton didn’t hesitate to take the opening lead of the game. The Oilers picked up a goal from former Golden Knight Mattias Janmark 0:45 into the 1st period. Less than a minute later the road team doubled their score to 2-0. Vegas got within one late in the period from depth forward Keegan Kolesar’s fifth goal of the season.

The offense picked up for both teams in the middle frame. Edmonton stretched their lead to 3-1 but Paul Cotter scored for Vegas to climb within a goal. Again, the Oilers took a two-goal lead, but Vegas made a late attack and William Karlsson fired one into the net with 0:42 left in the 2nd period.

Both teams tightened up and limited mistakes in the final period. Vegas had several chances but couldn’t find the game-tying goal.

The Golden Knights’ record drops to 28-14-2 falling to the Oilers 4-3. Vegas will look to bounce back on Monday afternoon as the team prepares to face former coach Pete DeBoer and the Dallas Stars. Puck drop against the Stars is scheduled for 3 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights never stopped pushing to get themselves back into the game after the miserable first two minutes, they just couldn’t outrun their own mistakes. Far too often they made catastrophic mistakes against a very skilled team. That, and VGK’s 1st line was a complete no-show, which is rare.  (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 FLORIDA PANTHERS 2 (28-13-2, 58 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Florida Panthers for a midweek out-of-conference matchup. Florida got on the scoreboard early after Vegas’ net dislodged 2:02 into the game. The refs awarded the Panthers a goal after a lengthy review. Florida held a tight 1-0 edge heading into the 1st intermission.

Nic Roy evened the score 4:08 into the middle frame, scoring his 8th goal of the season. Later in the period Florida regained their one-goal lead on the power play. The home team trailed 2-1 after 40 minutes of action.

Vegas killed off a 5-on-3 to stay within one in the final period. Minutes later Jack Eichel flipped one over Florida’s goalie to tie the game 2-2. Late in the game William Carrier crashed the net and recorded the game-winning goal. William Karlsson sealed the deal with an empty-net goal.

The Golden Knights’ record improves to 28-13-2 defeating the Panthers 4-2. Next, Vegas will welcome Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It was a fairly evenly played game overall with both teams having stretches of controlling the game. Bobrovsky made life difficult on the Golden Knights for a while, but they found a way to break through as the game went on. Really strong win in a spot where it easily could have gotten away. Offside challenge and a 5-on-3 kill were key. (Analysis by Ken)

LOS ANGELES KINGS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (27-13-2, 56 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the LA Kings for a divisional battle between the two teams with the most points in the Pacific. LA scored the opening goal of the game late in the opening 20 minutes. Both teams had power play opportunities, but the Kings fought off Vegas’ man-advantage and held on to a 1-0 edge going into the 1st intermission.

Leading 1-0, the Kings offense continued to heat up in the middle period. LA picked up a shorthanded goal midway through the frame and extended their lead to 3-0 seven minutes later.

Vegas’ offense continued to slump in the 3rd period. The Golden Knights generated a handful of quality chances but couldn’t take advantage of any of them. LA added a fourth goal and an empty netter in the last twenty 20 to seal the game for the visiting team. VGK did get one late to continue the streak of not being shutout this season.

The Golden Knights’ record drops to 27-13-2 losing to the Kings 5-1. Vegas will have a few days off to rest and prepare for the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: VGK just did not play well at all in this game. It really materialized most in the neutral zone where the Golden Knights couldn’t seem to find any success on their entries and struggled to make life tough on the Kings. As that continued, Vegas started to lose puck battles and then the goaltending fell apart. Just an all around terrible game. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 PITTSBURGH PENGUINS 2 (27-12-2, 56 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the reeling Pittsburgh Penguins for their second game of 2023. Vegas got off to a really quick start receiving their first goal from Phil Kessel 1:53 into the opening period. After an 11-game absence, Jack Eichel doubled VGK’s lead to 2-0. It was Eichel’s 14th goal of the season and his first since December 3rd. Later in the period, Chandler Stephenson extended the Golden Knights lead 3-0 with a power play goal.

Pittsburgh outshot Vegas in the middle frame but couldn’t find the back of the net. The Golden Knights killed off a penalty mid-way through the period to hold the Penguins scoreless. Mark Stone tallied his 17th goal of the season with 0:11 left in the period. After 40 minutes the home team held a 4-1 advantage.

The Penguins finally got on the scoreboard early in the final period, but the Golden Knights continued to attack. Paul Cotter ripped a one-time pass from Kessel to register his 5th goal of the season.

The Golden Knights record improves to 27-12-2 drubbing the Penguins 5-2. Vegas will take the ice on Saturday for a divisional battle against the LA Kings. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights won this game with a dominant 1st period. They came out and were all Penguins from the opening faceoff. They scored quickly off a good forechecking play by William Karlsson, then got a pair more as they beat Pittsburgh in every facet. The 2nd was almost as bad as the 1st was good but Adin Hill came up big. They basically just protected their way to the win in the 3rd. (Analysis by Ken)
