VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 VANCOUVER CANUCKS 3 (42-25-8, 92 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted Pacific rival Vancouver Canucks for a late season divisional meeting. It didn’t take long for Vegas to generate their offense. Deadline acquisition Anthony Mantha gave VGK a 1-0 lead 1:37 into the game. Jonathan Marchessault added his team-leading 41st goal of the season five minutes later. Jack Eichel and Noah Hanifin wrapped up the 1st period scoring for Vegas, as they carried a 4-1 advantage into the first intermission.

Again, Vegas scored in the opening two minutes into the period. Vancouver recorded their second goal of the game but trailed Vegas 5-2 after 40 minutes of action.

Vancouver cut Vegas’ lead to 5-3 early in the final frame. Brett Howden tapped in a one time pass from Keegan Kolesar moments later to regain VGK’s three goal advantage. The reigning champions finished off the Canucks for their sixth win in the past seven games.

The Golden Knights record improves to 42-25-8 defeating the Canucks 6-3. Vegas will take a short flight to Arizona for a Friday night matchup against the Coyotes. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights used a dominant 1st period to jump all over a Canuck team that did not look ready for them. From there, they were able to hold strong enough and respond every time the Canucks generated anything. This version of the Golden Knights is finally starting to look like the one that one that Cup last year. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 MINNESOTA WILD 1 (41-25-8, 90 PTS) – OT

Recap: The Golden Knights were hoping to wrap up their successful four-game road trip with a victory in Minnesota. Vegas was awarded two power plays in the opening period but failed to convert an opportunity into a goal.

In the 2nd period, the tables turned for Vegas. The Golden Knights committed two penalties which cost them the lead. The hometown Wild held a 1-0 edge after two periods of play.

Late in the game Michael Amadio recorded his 13th goal of the season to force overtime. The Wild chose to pull their goalie in overtime chasing the extra point in the standings. Jonathan Marchessault scored the game-winner and his 40th goal of the season on an empty net in OT.

The Golden Knights record improves to 41-25-8 defeating the Wild 2-1 in Minnesota. Vegas will fly back home for one game against Vancouver on Tuesday night. Puck drop against the Canucks is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Boring hockey is back for the Golden Knights, and that’s a good thing. A low-event game for the most part picked up with Jack Eichel took a major penalty for spearing. That led to Minnesota’s only goal and with Eichel out of the game it looked like trouble. But, a great stretch pass from Martinez, followed by an even better dish by Stephenson and a great finish by Amadio tied the game. A desperate Minnesota pulled their goalie in OT, and Jonathan Marchessault accepted the gift. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 WINNIPEG JETS 1 (40-25-8, 88 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights were hoping to continue their point streak alive with a victory over the Winnipeg Jets. The opening 10 minutes saw one fight, two scrums and three penalties but eventually Vegas scored the opening goal of the game. Pavel Dorofeyev recorded his third goal in his past four games, giving the reigning champions a 1-0 advantage.

Winnipeg quickly tied the game to start the middle frame. The Golden Knights continued to commit penalties which the Jets were gladly willing to accept. However, Vegas’ penalty kill was up for the task and kept the Jets from taking a lead. After 40 minutes the contest was locked in a 1-1 tie.

Both teams continued to battle in the final period, but neither could find the back of the net. With five minutes left on the clock, Ivan Barbashev tipped in his 17th goal of the season to elevate Vegas 2-1. Barbashev later iced the game with an empty net goal with under two minutes left.

The Golden Knights record improves to 40-25-8 defeating the Jets 4-1 on the road in Winnipeg. Vegas will wrap up their four-game Central Division road trip on Saturday afternoon in Minnesota. Puck drop is scheduled for 12:30 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: A weirdly unexciting game between two teams that are going to playoffs. VGK looked a lot better in the 1st period than the final two but they did well enough to keep the Jets to the outside and got solid goaltending once again. (Analysis by Ken)

NASHVILLE PREDATORS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (39-25-8, 86 PTS) – OT

Recap: It didn’t take long for the Golden Knights to take the first lead in Nashville. Vegas’ Ivan Barbashev recorded his 16th goal of the season 2:45 into the game. A couple of shifts later Brett Howden doubled Vegas’ advantage and Shea Theodore widened the lead to 3-0.

Both teams swapped power players in the middle frame but neither could take advantage. Nashville eventually got on the scoreboard with a goal late in the period. Fortunately, William Karlsson regained Vegas’ three goal lead and took a 4-1 lead into the second intermission.

The train went off the tracks in the 3rd period though as Nashville stormed back to tie the game. Ryan O’Reilly scored about six minutes in and then Filip Forsberg brought it one closer. It appeared the third goal would come back due to an offside challenge but they ruled it a good goal. On the ensuing power play, Nashville tied it.

In OT, Roman Jose drove the goal and slipped one around Jiri Patera.

The Golden Knights record falls to 39-25-8 falling the Predators 5-4 in Nashville. Vegas will continue their four-game road trip up north in Winnipeg for a matchup on Thursday. Puck drop against the Jets is scheduled for 5 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights were excellent to start this game in Nashville as the forecheck at the Predators alive in the 1st. Things started to go a bit haywire in the 2nd as the Red pushed back but VGK somehow escaped it with a three goal lead. It went downhill quickly in the 3rd as they squandered a massive lead.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 ST. LOUIS BLUES 1 (39-25-7, 85 PTS) – OT

Recap: The Golden Knights were looking to separate themselves from the rest of the Wild Card hopefuls with a victory in St. Louis. Pavel Dorofeyev picked up his 11th goal of the season 5:59 into the opening period. Vegas’ goaltender Logan Thompson turned away 13 St. Louis shots in the period to hold a 1-0 advantage.

Both teams traded chances in the middle period but the puck wouldn’t find the back of the net. After 40 minutes the Golden Knights held on to their one goal advantage.

Thompson made some key stops in the final frame and continued to frustrate St. Louis. With five minutes remaining the home team tied the game 1-1 and forced overtime. Vegas’ goalie made a game saving stop on a St. Louis penalty shot and Jonathan Marchessault heroically ended sudden death with his 39th of the season.

The Golden Knights record improves to 39-25-7 defeating the Blues in overtime. Vegas will get back on the ice tomorrow evening in Nashville. Puck drop against the Predators is scheduled for 5PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: For the first 40 minutes the Golden Knights put on a defensive masterclass. Their exits were wonderful, the neutral zone support was terrific, and the forecheck constantly hounded the Blues into giveaways. Everything was going as perfectly as it could have been until the 3rd. It all unravelled but luckily Logan Thompson came up with a bundle of massive stops including a penalty shot save in OT. And, as always, Jonathan Marchessault comes through with the clutch winner. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS 2 (38-25-7, 83 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Columbus Blue Jackets hoping for some payback for Vegas’ loss in Ohio earlier this month. The visitors took the opening lead by batting the puck over goaltender Adin Hill. After the opening twenty minutes Columbus held a 1-0 edge.

The Golden Knights offense began to heat up early on in the middle frame. A little more than three minutes into the period Ivan Barbashev tied the game, scoring his 15th goal of the season. Jack Eichel followed up with his 23rd goal a shift later. The reigning champions carried a 2-1 advantage into the second intermission.

Vegas scored again quickly into the period to extend their lead to 3-1. Pavel Dorofeyev reached double digits, recording his 10th of 2023-24. Eichel added a second with a power play tally late.

The Golden Knights record improves to 38-25-7 defeating the Blue Jackets 4-2. Vegas will hit the road for crucial four game trip beginning on Monday. Puck drop against the St. Louis Blues is scheduled for 5 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: VGK sleepwalked through the 1st period which caused quite a bit of concern. Then, they started to figure it out in the 2nd period and continued to dominate the Blue Jackets. Vegas landed nearly 40 of the last 45 shots. Bumslaying at its finest. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 SEATTLE KRAKEN 1 (37-25-7, 81 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights were looking to bounce back from their loss on Tuesday with a victory over the Seattle Kraken. Vegas took the opening lead 8:14 into the game after Jack Eichel poked in a loose puck in front of Seattle’s net. The Golden Knights outshot the Kraken 12-6 and carried a 1-0 lead going into the first intermission.

Vegas continued to pepper Seattle with shots in the middle frame but couldn’t extend their lead. Both teams were awarded a 2nd period power play, but neither could find the back of the net. After 40 minutes the home team held a 1-0 edge.

The Golden Knights were forced to kill off multiple penalties in the final frame, and the Kraken took advantage and evened the score with 6:31 left in the game. With under two minutes remaining, Keegan Kolesar came up with the game-winning goal after a razor-sharp offside review that went VGK’s way. Chandler Stephenson added an empty net goal to seal the game.

The Golden Knights record improves to 37-25-7 defeating the Kraken 3-1. Vegas will next host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night from T-Mobile Arena. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Vegas controlled the shot counter in that game but they really did not dominate it the way you would prefer against a team spiraling down. Neutral zone remained fairly open for much of the game and the offense could not generate much in tight aside from the two goals, both of which were a bit goofy. Nonetheless, that’s a win they really really needed and it’s important they got it. (Analysis by Ken)
