Recap: The Golden Knights and Sharks faced off for their second game in back-to-back nights. Mark Stone got Vegas started late in the 1st period scoring his sixth goal of the season. The captain and linemate Chandler Stephenson played catch with the puck in the offensive zone and Stone snapped it in. Marc-Andre Fleury looked sharp stopping all eight shots on net.

Alex Tuch continued to shine, scoring two in the second period. The winger scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season to stretch Vegas’ lead 3-0.

Reilly Smith added a goal in the third period padding the Golden Knights lead. Smith’s fifth of the year gave Vegas a commanding 4-0 lead. Fleury was flawless once again and picked up his fourth shutout of the season.

With their 4-0 win in San Jose, Vegas’ record improves to 16-4-1. The Golden Knights continue their road trip on Monday night in Minnesota. The matchup against the Wild is scheduled for 5 PM PT (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights simply asserted their dominance over the Sharks for the entire night. Vegas is a lot better than the Sharks and it really showed up as they controlled the puck for most of the night. Fleury came up with a few dandies but even despite the shutout he wasn’t the story of the night. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 SAN JOSE SHARKS 4 (15-4-1 31 PTS) – OT

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

Recap: It didn’t take long for the Golden Knights to take control of the game up in San Jose. In the first seven minutes Vegas received goals from Reilly Smith and Chandler Stephenson. Filling in for Marc-Andre Fleury, goaltender Oscar Dansk looked sharp and held the 2-0 lead through 20 minutes.

Max Pacioretty gave Vegas a 3-0 edge scoring his 11th goal of the season 2:57 into the 2nd period. San Jose began to warm up scoring twice in the middle frame. The Golden Knights narrowly led the Sharks 3-2 going into the second intermission.

Alex Tuch regained the Golden Knights’ two-goal advantage in the 3rd period with his 10th goal of the season. The Sharks answered with two 3rd period goals of their own to force overtime.

Pacioretty ended the game in overtime, scoring on a nice feed from Alex Pietrangelo.

With their 5-4 overtime win the Golden Knights improve their record to 15-4-1. The two teams will play again tomorrow night against in San Jose. The game is scheduled for 7:30 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Like always against the Sharks, it was a whacky game that had a little bit of everything and in the end, the Golden Knights came out on top. Vegas controlled the majority of the play but a couple of oddities helped lead to a pair of Sharks goals. Vegas certainly didn’t play their best game of the season, but they deserved the two points when it was all said and done. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 MINNESOTA WILD 1 (14-4-1 29 PTS)

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

Recap: Alex Tuch continued his hot streak quickly in the 1st period against Minnesota. Tuch’s 9th of the season gave Vegas the early lead 2:03 into the game. Marc-Andre Fleury was superb stopping all 10 shots by the Wild in the opening 20 minutes. 

The Golden Knights had multiple chances on the power play in the 2nd period but couldn’t convert one into a goal. However, seconds after a man-advantage ran out Jonathan Marchessault doubled Vegas’ lead with a nifty top-shelf score. Minnesota would get one back, and after 40 minutes played the Golden Knights held a 2-1 advantage. 

The Wild pressured in the first half of the period but Fleury kept calm. Mark Stone and Chandler Stephenson stretched the lead, and William Karlsson secured the victory with a late empty-net goal. The Golden Knights won 5-1 and sent Minnesota packing. 

With their 5-1 victory over the Wild, the Golden Knights record improves to 14-4-1. Vegas hits the road for the next six games. They’ll next play on Friday night in San Jose. The game against the Sharks is scheduled for 7:30 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights needed some magic to recover the game on Monday, tonight they came out and handled Minnesota like a 1st place team should in their own building. Vegas was much better in all three zones and got some nice individual efforts from a number of guys to put the puck in the net offensively. The Wild aren’t someone to take lightly come playoff time, but the Golden Knights gave them something to think about with a pair of home victories. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 MINNESOTA WILD 4 (13-4-1 27 PTS) – OT

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

Recap: The Golden Knights welcomed not only the Minnesota Wild but more importantly the return of VGK fans in the building. The 1st period was tight but both teams had plenty of chances on net. After the opening 20 minutes the game was locked in a scoreless tie. 

The offense picked up in the middle frame. Cody Glass and Max Pacioretty picked up a power play goal a piece, but the Wild strongly answered. Minnesota scored four 2nd period goals to carry a 4-2 lead into the second intermission. 

It took Vegas almost half of the 3rd period to get their first shot on net. The Wild did a good job of locking up defensively limiting the Golden Knights chances in the final period. However, Nic Hague was able to keep his team in the game with his second goal of the season. Vegas pulled Marc-Andre Fleury late and it paid off. Alex Tuch’s eighth goal of the season tied the game 4-4 with :42 seconds left in the game. Pacioretty added his second goal to win the game in overtime.

With their impressive come from behind 5-4 victory in OT the Golden Knights record improves to 13-4-1. The two teams matchup again on Wednesday night. The game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Well, they let the fans back in for the right game. It was probably the best game of the season from a competitive standpoint and the Golden Knights simply would not be denied. Mark Stone played like a runaway Hart Trophy candidate and the rest of the team jumped on his back in the 3rd period. The 2nd is definitely concerning considering how the Wild exploited VGK a bit, but in the end, who cares, what a comeback win. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 ANAHEIM DUCKS 2 (12-4-1 25 PTS) – OT

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

Recap: The Golden Knights traveled to Anaheim to take on the Ducks for the first game in five nights. Vegas showed some early rust and Anaheim was able to take the first lead of the game. Late in the opening period Alex Pietrangelo scored a much-needed goal to tie the game 1-1.

William Karlsson gave the Golden Knights the 2-1 2nd period lead with a highlight reel flip shot. It was Karlsson’s 4th goal of the season, and maybe his prettiest.

Anaheim tied the game on a controversial call in the 3rd. Coach Pete DeBoer challenged the goal for a missed high-stick whistle but the goal was confirmed and Vegas had to fight off a two-minute minor. After 60 minutes the game was locked at 2-2 and would need another five minutes to decide a winner. Karlsson scored the game-winner late in overtime to give his team a 3-2 victory.

With the win in overtime, the Golden Knights record improves to 12-4-1. Vegas hits the ice next on Monday night against the Minnesota Wild. Game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights got off to a hot start early dominating the first portion of the game. But it tailed off in the 1st and they ended up tied at the intermission. A pair of incredible goals by William Karlsson was the difference in the end. Have to give Fleury a lot of credit for this one too. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 COLORADO AVALANCHE 0 (11-4-1 23 PTS)

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

Recap: The 1st period in Denver, CO was tight and defensive. Marc-Andre Fleury made some timely saves, and the Golden Knights offense created ten quality shots on net. However, the scoring wouldn’t break out until the 2nd period. 

Alex Tuch continued his hot streak scoring two 2nd period goals. Tuch’s sixth and seventh of the season gave Vegas a 2-0 lead. Jonathan Marchessault added to the lead with his sixth of the year midway through the middle frame. Fleury was flawless and preserved a 3-0 lead heading into the second intermission.

Fleury was outstanding down the stretch, frustrating the Avalanche forwards. Colorado had multiple high-danger chances but the 36-year-old made several acrobatic saves keeping the puck out of his net. Fleury was perfect through sixty minutes and secured his third shutout of the season. 

With the 3-0 win, the Golden Knights improve their record to 11-4-1. Vegas has a couple of days off and then get back to work on Thursday night in San Jose. The game against the Sharks is scheduled for 730P PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Pete DeBoer knew the Golden Knights needed more offensively. So, he dropped the lines in a blender and boy did it make a difference. The Golden Knights controlled the puck much more than they have in the previous three games and were finally able to break the dam and start scoring. The Avs weren’t impotent though as they created plenty of chances but Marc-Andre Fleury put in his best performance of the season. (Analysis by Ken)

COLORADO AVALANCHE 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (10-4-1 21 PTS) – at LAKE TAHOE

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

Recap: It was a game the players and fans had waited a long time for. The Golden Knights and Avalanche met up for their third straight game but this time outside on the shores of Lake Tahoe.

Colorado took an early lead 2:58 into the game. Vegas responded well locking down their opponents and adding pressure in their offensive zone. The game changed late in the period as Mark Stone was penalized with a four-minute high-stick penalty. The Golden Knights’ penalty kill worked hard but wound up taking another penalty for too many men in the ice. Colorado was unable to score on either penalties before the 1st period came to a close. After the opening 20 minutes, Colorado held a 1-0 advantage.

The game was suspended during the first intermission due to sloppy ice conditions. Commissioner Gary Bettman deemed the ice surface was unsafe and the game would proceed at 9P PT.

Once the game resumed the Golden Knights were able to tie the game 1-1. Alec Martinez picked up his first goal of the season jumping on a rebound in front of the net. Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon broke the tie a few minutes later. Vegas trailed 2-1 after two periods played.

The Golden Knights had several power play chances in the final frame but couldn’t take advantage. The Avalanche added to their lead in third but Alex Tuch got it back with a beautiful spin-o-rama goal. However, Vegas couldn’t catch up and lost the franchise’s first outdoor game 3-2.

With their 3-2 loss to the Avalanche, the Golden Knights record drops to 10-4-1. Vegas and Colorado wrap up their four-game series on Monday night in Denver. Game is scheduled for 6PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It took a LONG time to get through 60 minutes of hockey, but whether it was day time or night time the Golden Knights were the inferior team on the ice. Colorado’s speed was clearly on display and Vegas struggled with it the entire game. The Golden Knights can beat Colorado, but they need to play close to a perfect game to do it and they certainly didn’t do that today. (Analysis by Ken)

COLORADO AVALANCHE 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (10-3-1 21 PTS)

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

Recap: Vegas struggled to stay on the ice in the 1st period. The Avalanche were awarded six minutes in power play opportunities which the Golden Knights killed all three penalties. However, Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon scored his third of the year to give Colorado a 1-0 lead.

Max Pacioretty tied the game with a 2nd period power play goal for his eighth of the season. The Avalanche regained the lead a minute later to take a 2-1 edge into the second intermission.

The Golden Knights brought heavy pressure in the 3rd period and it paid off. Jonathan Marchessault popped in the tying goal with heavy traffic in front of the net. Nazem Kadri scored the winning goal :41 seconds remaining in the game to pull of the 3-2 victory.

With their 3-2 loss to the Avalanche, the Golden Knights record drops to 10-3-1. Vegas and Colorado resume their series on Saturday afternoon outdoors at Lake Tahoe. Game is scheduled for 12 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Another excellent game between the best two teams in the West Division came down to the final minutes. Vegas did well to keep battling and stay in the game, tying it multiple times. But the speed of Colorado just kept coming at Vegas and they eventually broke late. This Avs team is very dangerous and the Golden Knights are going to need a heck of a plan to beat them if (probably when) these two match up in the West Division Championship series. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 COLORADO AVALANCHE 0 (10-2-1 21 PTS)

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

Recap: It was the first battle of eight between the West Division’s top two teams. The Colorado Avalanche traveled to Vegas for two games before the clubs face off outside at Lake Tahoe.

The 1st period was tight with strong goaltending from both teams. The Golden Knights were awarded two early power play opportunities but couldn’t take advantage. The Avalanche tested Marc-Andre Fleury but came up empty after the opening twenty minutes.

Max Pacioretty broke through early in the 2nd period with his 7th goal of the season. Both teams traded penalties but neither converted into a goal. Fleury was flawless in the middle frame stopping all 11 Colorado shots on net. Vegas held a 1-0 advantage after 40 minutes.

The Golden Knights pressured and held the Avalanche forwards scoreless in the third. Fleury’s brilliant performance earned him a second shutout of the season.

With their 1-0 win the Golden Knights improve their record to 10-2-1. Vegas and Colorado resume their series on Tuesday night. Game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Colorado made life very easy on the Golden Knights for the first 10 minutes of the game, but the final 50 Vegas earned every bit of the shutout they recorded. The Golden Knights were terrific defensively all night, led by Alex Pietrangelo. Fleury was excellent in the net but everyone deserves props for a game in which they took care of the puck and did a great job controlling an incredibly dangerous offense. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 SAN JOSE SHARKS 1 (9-2-1 19 PTS)

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

Recap: It was the Golden Knights’ first matchup of the season against the rival Sharks. Marc-Andre Fleury got his third straight start in net hoping to get his team back on a winning streak.

Vegas got on the board first with a power play goal from Jonathan Marchessault. The Golden Knights power play woke up caught fire in San Jose. Mark Stone added a second power play goal to give Vegas a 2-0 lead. San Jose scored to get within one before the second intermission, trailing Vegas 2-1.

Chandler Stephenson scored the Golden Knights third power play goal of the game setting up for a 3-1 edge. Fleury was strong down the stretch and held the two-goal lead. 

With their 3-1 win the Golden Knights improve their record to 9-2-1. Vegas will play again tomorrow against the Colorado Avalanche. Game is scheduled for 4P PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights’ power play came alive in San Jose striking for three goals with the man advantage. The rest of the game was a bit of a slop fest but Vegas found a way to keep the dangerous chances to a minimum and Fleury stopped almost all of them when they did come. Similar to many games this year, not Vegas’ best, but good enough to beat the West Division.  (Analysis by Ken)
