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

Recap: It was a historic night at T-Mobile Arena. San Jose forward Patrick Marleau passed hockey legend Gordie Howe’s all-time games played record in front of 3,950 Golden Knights fans.

San Jose got on the board first midway through the period. The Golden Knights were awarded two power play opportunities in the opening twenty minutes but couldn’t convert them into a goal.

The Sharks doubled their lead :29 seconds into the middle period. Mark Stone answered back a minute later with a power play goal to cut the lead in half.

Trailing 2-1 with 20 minutes remaining in the game Stone got to work again. The captain tied the game with his second power play goal of the evening. Robin Lehner was strong down the stretch shutting San Jose down in the final 20 minutes.

The Golden Knights and Sharks went back and forth in overtime but neither team could score the game-winner. Alex Tuch was the only player to score in a shootout and the Golden Knights pulled off a 3-2 victory.

Vegas’ record improves to 32-11-2 after their 3-2 shoutout victory against San Jose. The Golden Knights and Sharks resume their two game set on Wednesday night. The game is scheduled for 6:30 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Mark Stone played spoiler on Patrick Marleau’s special night. He single-handedly willed the Golden Knights across the regulation finish line scoring twice on the power play. In OT the Golden Knights continued to be dominant but couldn’t beat Jones. In a shocking twist, Robin Lehner won in shootout stopping all three shots. Fun game. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 LOS ANGELES KINGS 2 (29-11-2 58 PTS)

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

Recap: Tomas Nosek scored his eighth goal of the season early in the game giving the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead in Los Angeles. Alex Tuch quickly made a two-goal with his second goal in two games. The Kings got one back but Max Pacioretty bounced a puck in LA’s net to take a 3-1 lead into the first intermission. 

The two teams matched goals in the 2nd period with Vegas getting one from Chandler Stephenson. After 40 minutes the Golden Knights held a 4-2 advantage. 

The offense didn’t slow down for Vegas. Marl Stone and Alex Pietrangelo pitched in goals to stretch the lead to 6-2. Marc-Andre Fleury was strong in net stopping 20 of 22 shots. 

Vegas’ record improves to 29-11-2 after defeating LA 6-2. Vegas travels south to take on the Anaheim Ducks for the next two games. Friday night’s game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Yes! This is what the Golden Knights need to look like. They played incredibly aggressively offensively which included a full complement of four lines with the ability to score. They were attack-oriented all night long and overwhelmed the Kings with their speed and skill. Newcomer Mattias Janmark was terrific and Tomas Jurco’s impact on the fourth line was noticeable. Play like this and Colorado might be in for some trouble.  (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 LOS ANGELES KINGS 2 (28-11-2 58 PTS)

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

Recap: Vegas got off to a slow start in their second game of a back-to-back. The Kings struck first taking a 1-0 lead 9:41 into the game. The Golden Knights had a few chances late in the period but couldn’t take advantage. 

The King’s took a two goal lead midway through the 2nd period. However, the Golden Knights made a strong push to tie the game 2-2. Nic Roy scored Vegas’ first goal with a nifty flip past LA’s goaltender. Captain Mark Stone tied the game with a shorthanded goal before the period expired. 

Vegas continued to pressure LA in the 3rd period and eventually took the lead on Alex Tuch’s 14th of the season. The Golden Knights were awarded a 3rd period power play and Max Pacioretty recorded his 300th career NHL goal. Pacioretty’s goal was the fourth straight from Vegas. 

Vegas’ record improves to 28-11-2 after defeating LA 4-2. The two teams will square off again on Wednesday night. The game is scheduled for 7PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It wasn’t pretty for 40 minutes as the Golden Knights somewhat sleepwalked through the first two periods, but a horrific power play by the Kings turned the tide for Vegas. They tied the game and then woke up in time to completely dominate the Kings in the final 20 minutes. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 ARIZONA COYOTES 0 (27-11-2 56 PTS)

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 54 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 52 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 52 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 50 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)
