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

Recap: The Arizona Coyotes gave Vegas all they could handle in the 1st period but couldn’t get one past goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. The Golden Knights had multiple quality chances but were a bit unlucky hitting the post and crossbar several times. The game was locked in a scoreless tie after the opening 20 minutes.

Both teams struggled to generate offense in a tight 2nd period. The Golden Knights widely outshot the Coyotes 16-4 in the middle frame but came up short. The game was locked 0-0 after 40 minutes played.

Tomas Nosek continued his hot streak giving the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead ten minutes into the 3rd period. Vegas fought off a late attack from Arizona and held on to win 1-0.

Vegas’ record improves to 27-11-2 after defeating Arizona in consecutive games. The Golden Knights hop on a plane for a quick trip to LA to take on the Kings. Tomorrow night’s game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: We expected the Coyotes to come out with a lot more fire than they showed on Friday, and they did, but the Golden Knights at full strength on defense for the first time in a long time held them up. Vegas kept the Coyotes out of the dangerous areas the entire night and Arizona was never willing to throw shots on goal from long distance. Fleury stopped all of the ones that made it through but the defense deserves the majority of the credit. Scoring droughts aren’t nearly as concerning when you can play that well defensively.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 7 ARIZONA COYOTES 4 (26-11-2 53 PTS)

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

Recap: The Golden Knights before the game emphasized having a strong start against the Coyotes and they did just that. Vegas scored four straight goals, including one on the power play and on a penalty kill. The Golden Knights dominated the opening 20 minutes outshooting the Coyotes 22-8.

Chandler Stephenson extended the scoring spree with his 8th of the season. In the first 25 minute the Golden Knights scored five unanswered goals. Arizona scored a late period goal but trailed 5-1 heading into the second intermission.

Arizona made a late push in the final frame. The Coyotes outscored the Golden Knights in the 3rd period but Max Pacioretty’s iced the game with a final-minute empty-net goal.

Vegas’ record improves to 26-11-2 after defeating Arizona 7-4. The two teams will square off again on Sunday afternoon. The game is scheduled for 1 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It may have been the best 10 minute stretch in Golden Knights history to open the game. They completely manhandled the Coyotes in every facet of the game of hockey and jumped out to a four-goal lead. From there, they certainly coasted it but, which made the game a little more interesting than it should have, but in the end Vegas was never in any real danger. Those first 10 minutes were Cup-winning hockey. (Analysis by Ken)

ST. LOUIS BLUES 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (25-11-2 51 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 rocky start in St. Louis. The Blues scored :48 seconds into the game and added another seven minutes later. Marc-Andre Fleury settled in and held the two-goal deficit into the 1st intermission.

Neither team could generate offense in the middle period. Vegas outshot St. Louis 19-4 but couldn’t breakthrough and the score stood 2-0 after 40 minutes played.

The Blues and Golden Knights traded goals in the final 20 minutes. Vegas earned a late power play and pulled Fleury but couldn’t get any closer.

Vegas’ record drops to 25-11-2 with their 3-1 defeat in St. Louis. The Golden Knights travel back home to face the Arizona Coyotes for two games. Friday nights game against the Coyotes is scheduled for 7 PM PT.(Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Turnovers and lost coverages in the defense zone plagued the shorthanded Golden Knights all night. Playing a D-man short (again) due to the cap they were unable to consistently take care of the puck which led to a glut of dangerous chances for the Blues. Vegas did claw back a bit in regards to possession but didn’t solve Binnington until it was far too late. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 ST. LOUIS BLUES 0 (25-10-2 51 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 fast start in St. Louis. Tomas Nosek continued his hot streak scoring the first goal of the game. Defenseman Alec Martinez gave Vegas a two goal lead later in the period with his 6th goal of the season. The Blues would get one back and the score stood 2-1 after the opening period. 

Vegas’ offense exploded in the 2nd period. Martinez tallied his second of the game regaining the two goal lead for the Golden Knights. William Carrier, Jonathan Marchessault and Nic Hague followed with goals of their own to give Vegas a commanding 6-1 lead after 40 minutes played. 

The game expectedly took on a slower pace in the 3rd period. The Golden Knights protected their five goal lead by possessing the puck and letting the clock run. Starting goaltender Robin Lehner was strong in net stopping 31 of 32 shots. 

Vegas’ record improves to 25-10- 2 with their 6-1 blowout win in St. Louis. The Golden Knights and Blues face off again on Wednesday night. The game in St. Louis is scheduled for 6 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights came into the game in a bit of a scoring funk. By the 2nd period, that was over. The 1st period was fairly competitive, in the 2nd Vegas whipped the Blues all over the ice. St. Louis’s slide continues, Vegas’ is over. (Analysis by Ken)

MINNESOTA WILD 2 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (24-10-2 49 PTS)

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

Recap: Tomas Nosek got Vegas on the board early in the 1st period giving the home team a 1-0 lead. Nosek picked up his fourth point in the past five games. Marc-Andre Fleury was steady in the opening period stopping all 12 Wild shots. 

Both goalies were outstanding in the middle frame combining for 14 saves. The game stood 1-0 Vegas after two periods played. 

Minnesota’s offense woke up in the 3rd period scoring two straight goals. The Wild tied it up with a power play and took the lead a minute later. The Golden Knights couldn’t muster much with their net empty.

Vegas’ record drops to 24-10- 2 with their 2-1 defeat to Minnesota. The Golden Knights hit the road for the next two games to take on the Blues in St. Louis. Monday’s game is scheduled for 5 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights offensive power outage returned in this one as the only time Vegas scored it was literally accidental. They had a few great chances but failed to convert. On the other end, while the defense certainly improved, the concern of Minnesota scoring in tight continued. As the season heads towards the stretch run, this appears it could be a playoff series, and the Golden Knights have to figure out how to solve the Wild riddle. (Analysis by Ken)

MINNESOTA WILD 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (24-9-2 49 PTS) – SO (1-0)

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

Recap: William Karlsson got Vegas off to a quick start scoring his 10th goal of the season 3:29 into the game. Minnesota caught up later in the period directing a pass by Robin Lehner. The game was tied 1-1 after the opening twenty minutes.

Lehner and Minnesota’s Cam Talbot put on a show in the middle frame. Both goalies were superb shutting down a combined 31 shots on net. The game was locked up 1-1 after 40 minutes played. 

Brayden McNabb broke the tie early in 3rd period with his first goal of the season. The Wild didn’t go away and tied that game on a 4-on-3 power play. 

The game was tied 2-2 after regulation and needed overtime and a shootout to settle the score. The Wild snuck one past Lehner in shootouts and won 3-2.

Vegas’ record drops to 24-9-2 with their 3-2 defeat in a shootout to Minnesota. The two teams will resume their two-game set on Saturday night. The game is scheduled for 6 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: What an awesome hockey game that one was. The Golden Knights created plenty of amazing chances but Talbot robbed a whole bunch of them. It’s a bit concerning how wide-open the game was, a reoccurring theme against the Wild, but with Vegas playing two men short it’s nothing to lose sleepover. Take the point and be thankful the Golden Knights goalie was great in his own right to keep it from being back-to-back regulation losses. (Analysis by Ken)

LOS ANGELES KINGS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (24-9-1 49 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 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)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 LOS ANGELES KINGS 1 (24-8-1 49 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 slow start against the Kings. Los Angeles scored exactly a minute into the game to take a 1-0 lead. Robin Lehner got the start in net and stopped 12 of LA’s 13 1st period shots.

Vegas’ offense got moving in the 2nd period. The Golden Knights were able to generate several quality chances and they took advantage. Reilly Smith tied the game on the power play and Tomas Nosek and Nic Hague gave Vegas a two-goal lead. Lehner was sharp and blanked the Kings in the middle frame.

Former King Alec Martinez stretched the lead to 4-1 Vegas with his 5th goal of the season. Lehner was outstanding in net holding the Kings scoreless for 59 minutes of the game.

Vegas’ record improves to 24-8-1 with their 4-1 victory over LA. The two teams will faceoff again on Wednesday night for their second game of a two game set. Wednesday night’s game against LA is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: For the second straight game the Golden Knights controlled the 2nd period, a period they’ve struggled with most of this season. They amassed a nice lead and then took their foot off the pedal in the 3rd and let the hapless Kings shoot the puck into the boards the rest of the night. Another example of the Golden Knights proving what we’ve known for a while now, they are a lot better than everyone in this division not named the Avs. (Analysis by Ken)

Both teams were held scoreless in the 3rd period forcing overtime. Max Pacioretty won the game scoring his fourth overtime goal of the season.

Analysis: Vegas played a lot better defensively and forced a high-powered Avs team to work much harder for their opportunities than Thursday night. A step forward by Will Carrier made a huge difference, as well as the Golden Knights depth, held their own. Huge win in the race to win the division and own home-ice in the inevitable playoff series between these two teams. (Analysis by Ken)

COLORADO AVALANCHE 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (22-8-1 45 PTS)

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

Recap: The game in Colorado couldn’t have started any better for the Vegas Golden Knights in Colorado. Max Pacioretty scored immediately on the Golden Knights first shot of the game. Marc-Andre Fleury looked sharp in net stifling the Avalanche in the 1st period. After the opening twenty minutes vegas held a 1-0 lead. 

However, Colorado’s offense took over in the 2nd period. The Avalanche scored four unanswered goals in the middle frame. Vegas commited three penalties in the period and it caught up to them. After two periods the Avalanche led 4-1.

The scoring continued in the final period as the Avalanche extended their lead a few minutes in. Vegas thought they had a second goal late in the game but was waived off for being offsides.

Vegas’ record drops to 22-8-1 after their 5-1 loss in Colorado. Both teams resume their two-game set on Saturday. The matinee game is scheduled for Noon PT (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: About as forgettable a night as you can get for the Golden Knights. They scored first on a broken play and then proceeded to get their butts whipped for 59 consecutive minutes by a team that they are supposed to be equal to or better than. Saturday becomes a big one now as Vegas has to show they have the ability to push back on a healthy Colorado team. (Analysis by Ken)
