VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 LOS ANGELES KINGS 3 (21-12-0 42 PTS)

Recap: The opening 20 minutes in Los Angeles were wild. Both clubs looked sluggish to start but around the midway point of the period the game opened up. First Reilly Smith gave Vegas a 1-0 lead on the power play and Keegan Kolesar tipped in another :26 seconds later. LA immediately answered to cut the lead in half but Jonathan Marchessault regained Vegas’ two goal lead moments later. Altogether, the two teams combined for 4 goals in 1:16.

Vegas continued to pressure LA in the second period scoring twice to take a 5-1 advantage. LA would earn one back with a shorthanded goal to pull within three.

The Golden Knights took a 6-2 lead after Marchessault’s second goal of the game and 16th of the season. LA inched closer but never threatened Vegas’ advantage.

The Golden Knights record improves to 21-12-0 defeating the Kings 6-3 in LA. Vegas returns home for a six-game homestand beginning on Friday. The Golden Knights and Ducks will face off on New Year’s Eve. Puck drop is set for Noon. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The game was messy for about the first five minutes. Then the Golden Knight started scoring and never stopped. It wasn’t exactly the best hockey game in the world, but the Golden Knights were much better than the Kings. Like much much much better. (Recap by Ken)

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (20-12-0 40 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted reigning champion Tampa Bay Lightning before the NHL pauses for a handful of days. Tampa only needed six minutes to take the first lead of the game. After a scary collision Vegas captain Mark Stone came back out and tied the game on the power play. 

The offense picked up for both teams in the middle frame. Stone scored again 1:41 into the period to give Vegas their first lead of the game. Nic Roy stretched the Golden Knights lead to 3-1 shaking Norris trophy defenseman Victor Hedman. Tampa woke up and tied the game on two straight shots. After 40 minutes the game was tied up 3-3.

The Lightning took the lead late into a third period power play. Vegas had some chances throughout the final twenty minutes but couldn’t tie the game.

The Golden Knights record drops to 20-12-0 falling 4-3 to the Lightning. Vegas and the rest of the NHL will get some time off and return to the ice after Christmas. Until further notice from the league the Golden Knights are scheduled to play the Colorado Avalanche on Monday night. Puck drop is set for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: For 25 minutes or so the Golden Knights were slapping the Lightning around. Outshooting them at an incredible clip, generating chances at will and thwarting Tampa’s offense. Then Mark Stone left the game and things started to fall apart. Tampa scored a pair quick and then a ridiculous slapper from Stamkos gave them a lead VGK couldn’t overcome. (Recap by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 NEW YORK ISLANDERS 3 (20-11-0 40 PTS) – SO (2-0)

Recap: The Golden Knights took the first lead of the game on Jonathan Marchessault’s 14th goal of the season. The Islanders responded with one of their own to even the score in the 1st period. 

The game tightened defensively and both goaltenders made some key stops holding the 1-1 lock after 40 minutes. 

Early in the final frame Shea Theodore broke the tie with a power play goal from the blue line. Later in the period the Islanders took advantage of a Golden Knights turnover to tie the game 2-2. New York scored the go ahead goal with under three minutes to go ahead 3-2 but Theodore wasn’t through yet. The Golden Knights defenseman lined up another shot by the Islanders goaltender to send the game to overtime. Theodore and Nic Roy clinched the game in shootouts 4-3.

The Golden Knights record improves to 20-11-0 sweeping their four game road trip. Vegas next plays on Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning at T-Mobile Arena. Puck drop against the Islanders is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Turnovers, turnovers, and more turnovers plagued the Golden Knights and led to them fighting to stay in the game the entire afternoon. However, they got enough goaltending, a bit of luck on an offside challenge, and a couple of bombs from Theodore in the high slot to drag the game to OT. Lehner wins another shootout and maybe that narrative needs to start shifting. (Recap by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 NEW YORK RANGERS 2 (19-11-0 38 PTS) – SO (1-0)

Recap: The Golden Knights controlled the 1st period at Madison Square Garden against the NY Rangers. Brett Howden opened the scoring with his third of the season.

The Rangers tied the game :17 seconds into the middle frame on a tricky shot that Vegas goaltender Laurent Brossoit couldn’t handle. New York would eventually take the lead scoring on a power play opportunity. After 40 minutes the Golden Knights trailed 2-1.

Vegas fought back in the final 20 minutes but couldn’t muster up enough quality shots until late in the game. In back-to-back games defenseman Dylan Coghlan scored from the blue line tying the game 2-2. The game needed extra time to determine a winner. Jonathan Marchessault ended the contest scoring the only goal in shootout. 

The Golden Knights record improves to 19-11-0 beating Gerard Gallant and Ryan Reaves’ NY Rangers 3-2 in shootouts. Vegas’ road trip wraps up Sunday night against the NY Islanders. Puck drop against the Islanders is scheduled for 11 AM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: As good as the Golden Knights were in the 1st, they were that bad in the 2nd. A lot of it had to do with what the Rangers looked like, but Vegas struggled to deal with their push back in the 2nd. In a low-event 3rd the Golden Knights finally got a shot through and tied it up. A wild overtime couldn’t decide it and VGK extended their OT/SO winning streak to an insane NHL-record 15. (Recap by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 NEW JERSEY DEVILS 3 (18-11-0 36 PTS)

Recap: The Devils took the first lead 1:41 into the game but Vegas would respond later in the opening period. Defenseman Dylan Coghlan ripped a shot on the power play from below the blue line to tie the game 1-1. 

Vegas took control of the game in the second period receiving a tie breaking deflection off the stick of William Carrier. The Devils outshot the Golden Knights 15-7 in the middle frame but still trailed 2-1 heading into the second intermission. 

William Karlsson and Nic Roy extended Vegas’ lead to 4-1 in the first eight minutes of the final frame but New Jersey scratched back. Former Golden Knight Tomas Tatar cut the lead in half and minutes later the home team scored again to threaten Vegas’ 4-3 lead. The Golden Knights settled down and regained their two goal lead with an empty net goal from Jonathan Marchessault. 

The Golden Knights record improves to 18-11-0 after defeating the Devils 5-3. Vegas’ road trip continues tomorrow for an emotional matchup against former coach Gerard Gallant’s NY Rangers. Puck drop against the Rangers is scheduled for 4 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Vegas conceded first, but they controlled the game for the majority of the first half of it. Holding on to a one-goal lead they let the Devils grow into the game, but the transition game came through twice in a hurry to basically put the game out of reach… even if they came back and made it close. (Recap by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 BOSTON BRUINS 1 (17-11-0 34 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights came out hot on the road against the Bruins. Vegas gained momentum when Shea Theodore’s shot through traffic hit the back of Boston’s net. Max Pacioretty continued his goal streak scoring later to double Vegas’ lead. With under a second remaining in the opening period Jonathan Marchessault surprisingly extended the Golden Knights lead to 3-0. 

Pacioretty added his 12th of the season five minutes into the middle frame giving Vegas a commanding 4-0 advantage in Boston.

The Bruins scored quickly in the final period to get within three but the Golden Knights never allowed the game to get any closer. 

The Golden Knights record improves to 17-11-0 after defeating the Bruins 4-1. Vegas’ road trip continues on Thursday in New Jersey. Puck drop against the Devils is scheduled for 4 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights completed dominated the game and in doing so were rewarded with some goofy goals. They really didn’t need them though as they played so well in the neutral and defensive zones that the Bruins never had much of a chance to score. The couple of bounces off Boston players that went in turned the game into a laugher pretty quickly. (Recap by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 MINNESOTA WILD 4 (16-11-0 32 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights looked to shake off Friday’s loss by hosting the top-seeded Minnesota Wild. Vegas took the first lead of the game with Zach Whitecloud’s fourth goal of the season. Both offenses kept generating, but Minnesota tied the game with one second left in the period. The game was tied 2-2 hearing into the intermission.

Minnesota took their first lead of the game :09 seconds into the middle frame. Whitecloud evened the score on his second goal of the game and Max Pacioretty regained Vegas’ lead scoring his tenth of 2021-22. The home team held on to a 4-3 edge after two periods of action.

The Wild forced a tie early in the final period but Mark Stone gave the Golden Knights a 5-4 advantage with their second PP goal of the game. Alex Pietrangelo sealed the win with a late empty net score.

The Golden Knights record improves to 16-11-0 after defeating the Wild 6-4. Vegas hits the road for four game East Coast road trip. Their first stop will be in Boston to face the Bruins. Puck drop is scheduled for 4 PM.(Recap by Jason)

Analysis:The Golden Knights were far from perfect tonight, but they succeeded in areas they’ve had issues in recently, namely special teams. Lehner had a shaky game and the defense in front of him was not great until the final 20 minutes of the game. They don’t ask how, they just ask how many and for Vegas, that’s two in a row this season against the Wild. (Recap by Ken)

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (15-11-0 30 PTS)

Recap: Philadelphia took the early lead at T-Mobile Arena, scoring the game’s first goal 4:20 into the opening 20 minutes. It took a while but the relentless Golden Knights tied the game with :49 remaining in the period. 

The Flyers regained their lead on a rebound after a flurry of shots on starter Laurent Brossoit. Trailing 2-1, Vegas again tied the game late in the period when Max Pacioretty scored his eighth goal of the season. After 40 minutes the game was locked up 2-2.

Vegas quickly trailed by two after Philadelphia scored two unanswered in the first ten minutes of the period. Pacioretty added a late power play goal but the Flyers went on to win 4-3 at T-Mobile Arena, breaking their ten-game winless streak. 

The Golden Knights record drops to 15-11-0 after falling to the Flyers. Vegas finishes their homestand with a matchup against the Minnesota Wild on Sunday evening. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: In a game dubbed by Pete DeBoer “as dangerous trap game as you are going to get” the Golden Knights fell right into the trap. Playing without Chandler Stephenson the Golden Knights struggled to deal with the Philadelphia centers, but the real problem was special teams. They went 0 for 5 on the power play before tallying one very late and allowed 2 goals on three Flyer power plays. That’s a game the Golden Knights normally win. Tonight they did not. (Recap by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 DALLAS STARS 4 (15-10-0 30 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights came out firing the puck, outshooting the Stars 10-5 in the 1st period. Each team was awarded a power play and only Dallas was able to cash in to take a 1-0 lead into the intermission.

Mark Stone tied the game immediately in the middle period, scoring his second goal of the season :19 seconds in. The Stars would respond with back to back power play goals, making them 3 for 3 on the man advantage. Late in the period Jonathan Marchessault gave Vegas life with his 11th of the season.

The two traded goals midway through the final frame but Stone and his linemates would come through again. The captain tied the game with five minutes remaining and Max Pacioretty broke the tie a minute later. 

The Golden Knights record improves to 15-10-0 with their 5-4 comeback win against Dallas. Vegas will next face the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night. Puck drop against the Flames is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: In an absolutely crazy game, the Golden Knights’ 5-on-5 dominance won out over their incompetence on both special teams. VGK hounded the Stars all night at even-strength and ended up outshooting Dallas 45-23, but it took a furious comeback in the 3rd to find a way to win it. Two games against Dallas now this season, two miraculous wins, and four big points. (Recap by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 CALGARY FLAMES 2 (14-10-0 28 PTS)

Recap:  The Golden Knights and Flames matched up for their first time since the 2019-20 season. Both teams came out hard, creating a playoff-type atmosphere. Max Pacioretty gave Vegas a 1-0 lead late in the 1st period.

The 2nd period was tighter with fewer chances for both offenses. The Golden Knights fought off a late penalty to carry their 1-0 lead into the second intermission.

Center Nic Roy quickly doubled Vegas’ lead 1:49 into the final frame. Both teams traded goals but the Golden Knights held on to win. Robin Lehner was sharp in net stopping 24 of 26 shots to preserve a 3-2 Golden Knights victory.

The Golden Knights record improves to 14-10-0 after defeating the first place Flames. Vegas will next host the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night. Puck drop against the Flames is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: For the first 40 minutes of the game the Golden Knights were terrific in all areas of the ice defensively. They were making life incredibly difficult on the Flames which completely stunted their offensive attack. In the 3rd, Vegas did enough to create separation and then withstand the comeback charge from Calgary. Nice win in a spot they needed one. (Recap by Ken)
