Vegas Taking Advantage Of Early Schedule

(Photo Credit: SinBin.vegas Photographer Brandon Andreasen)

Give the Ducks credit because last night’s 1-0 victory over the Golden Knights was a rare occurrence. Through 11 games it’s clear, the NHL (and a COVID pause) presented Vegas with a golden opportunity to start off strong.

The Golden Knights have largely preyed on weaker opponents. Their overall opponents’ combined record is 23-21-9. If you subtract the single game with St. Louis, the record drops to a sluggish 16-17-7.

The 5-4 win over Anaheim on Tuesday earned Vegas their 17th point of the season. Ten of those points, or 70% were earned by beating the same two bad teams.

vs. Anaheim & LA
VGK (5-1-0) 10 Points
VGK Goal Differential 21-13
VGK 3.5 Goals Scored Per
VGK 2.1 Goals Allowed Per

There’s also the home-ice factor. Of course, without fans, that is surely muted at least a little bit, but the rigors of traveling in the COVID landscape offer some challenges to the road teams.

The Golden Knights have traveled just one time the entire season and they suffered one of their two losses on that trip. In the two road games, they scored just three total goals.

At 8-2-1, Vegas has succeeded by dominating periods, getting hot goaltending and playing a lighter schedule. It’s not a knock on the Golden Knights, take em where you can get em. They play in a below-average division and as long as they clinch a playoff berth, it doesn’t matter who they beat or where they beat them. It was important for Vegas to jump out and build a cushion in the standings against easier competition and they’ve done just that.

Despite last night’s 1-0 loss to Anaheim, history tends to repeats itself when a Southern Californian team faces Vegas. Going back to the inaugural 2017-18, the Golden Knights have a combined total of 42 points in 31 games against the Ducks and Kings. Vegas has earned points in 22 of 31 games. It’s been a lopsided affair to say the least.

Vegas vs. Anaheim & LA History

vs. Kings
15 Games Played
7-6-2 Record (4-0 in Postseason)
16 Of A Possible 30 Points
42-46 Goal Differential
.533 Win%

Vegas will play Anaheim and LA 10 more times this season. Historical data projects the Golden Knights will earn around 13 points in their remaining games against the Ducks and Kings. If the forecast is accurate, Vegas will collect a whopping 23 of 32 points against the SoCal duo.

It’s possible the Golden Knights can build their path to the postseason from these two opponents alone. That success sets Vegas up nicely even if they happen to fall to better competition.

ANAHEIM DUCKS 1 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 0 (8-2-1 17 PTS)

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

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Ducks for the second straight game, trying to remain undefeated vs. Anaheim. Marc-Andre Fleury got his second straight start in net also trying to stay undefeated on the season.

The 1st period was quiet with both goaltenders stopping all shots they faced. Anaheim outshot Vegas 13-4 but Fleury was able to save them all securing a scoreless tie after the opening twenty minutes.

Like the opening period, the 2nd frame was tight. Each team had power play opportunities but couldn’t convert. Fleury was outstanding again, making some big saves on several Anaheim rushes.

Scoreless after 40 minutes, the game got moving in the 3rd. The Golden Knights had several chances early stopped by Ducks goaltender John Gibson. Anaheim finally opened the scoring midway through the period making it the only goal of the game.

With their 1-0 loss the Golden Knights record drops to 8-2-1. Vegas hits the road to face San Jose for the first time this season. Game is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at 1P PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights just never got anything going offensively. They struggled to enter in the 3rd and really never had much more than a single chance at a time during the whole game. Marc-Andre Fleury was tremendous but had no chance on the game-winner.  (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 ANAHEIM DUCKS 4 (8-1-1 17 PTS)

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

Recap: It was the third time since opening night that Vegas and Anaheim faced off at T-Mobile Arena. Marc-Andre Fleury got the start in net trying to keep his undefeated streak alive.

Chandler Stephenson touched off the scoring giving Vegas a 1-0 lead with his 4th of the year. After a mid-ice collision Shea Theodore left the ice with an apparent injury. Ryan Reaves took offense and challenged Ducks forward Nick Deslauriers. Both earned five minutes for fighting. Late in the period Jonathan Marchessault doubled Vegas’ lead 2-0.

Alex Tuch scored a nifty backhand early in the period to stretch the Golden Knights lead 3-0. Anaheim would get one back a minute later cutting the lead 3-1. Tuch’s linemate Nic Roy scored later in the period to regain Vegas’ three goal edge. Fleury was solid, stopping 8 of 9 Anaheim shots to hold a 4-1 lead.

Anaheim scored two quick goals in the third to get within one. The Ducks would eventually tie the game 4-4 on a power play goal by Ryan Getzlaf. Defenseman Zach Whitecloud came up with a big goal late in the period giving Vegas a one score score advantage.

With their 5-4 win the Golden Knights improve their record to 8-1-1. Vegas will face Anaheim again on Thursday night. Game is schedule for 7P PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It’s been a bit of a running theme for the Golden Knights that they play far from their best but still find a way to come out on top. They were far too loose in their own end and even with Fleury bailing them out early they still blew a three goal lead. Luckily (or maybe because they are really awesome) they’ve been able to outscore the issues. That was the case tonight, and now they are an inpressive 8-1-1. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 ANAHEIM DUCKS 1 (2-0-0 4 PTS) – OT

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

Recap: It was take two for the Golden Knights and Ducks at an empty T-Mobile Arena. Marc-Andre Fleury got his first start in net and stopped all six shots from Anaheim. Both teams had several quality chances but each goaltender were flawless. After the opening twenty minutes the game was locked in a scoreless tied.

Anaheim took the first lead of the game 7:45 into the second period. The Golden Knights defense broke down allowing for an easy 3-on-1 goal for the Ducks. Vegas couldn’t generate much offensively but took 11 shots on Anaheim goalie John Gibson. The home team trailed 1-0 heading into the second intermission.

Fleury kept Vegas in the game with a couple of strong saves in the third period. The Golden Knights were awarded their first power play of the game but didn’t get a shot on net. William Karlsson finally got his team on the board, tying the game 1-1 with 1:22 left in the game. The Swede’s goal forced an overtime period.

With their 2-1 overtime victory the Golden Knights improve their record to (2-0-0) and pick up four points in their first two games. Vegas next hits the ice Monday night against the Arizona Coyotes. Game is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights really didn’t seem to have it in this game, but in the dying embers of the game, with the goalie out of the net, a perfect tic-tac-toe play finished by William Karlsson tied the game. In OT, Mark Stone did what Mark Stone does. Thievery off the draw then a beautiful 2-on-1 pass and the rest is history. How in the world did Vegas win that game? Who cares? They did. Oh, and Fleury is awesome still. (Analysis by Ken)

Underestimating The Pace Of A Real Game

(Photo Credit: SinBin.vegas Photographer Brandon Andreasen)

We all watched with our own eyes on Thursday night. Vegas’ 5-2 victory over Anaheim got off to a quick but hectic start. In the opening eight minutes of the 2021 season, the two teams totaled four early goals. We know what happened later in the game, but let’s focus on the first eight minutes of the game.

If you’re playing in a normal season, and we get up two nothing like that the building is rocking. We got to learn to continue to push, we kind of let our foot off the gas after going up two nothing. -Mark Stone

In the initial 2:13 of the 1st period it looked like Vegas had turned the game into a one-sided contest. Jonathan Marchessault and Tomas Nosek nabbed their first goals of the season, temporarily giving the feel of a normal Golden Knights drubbing of the Ducks. Minutes later things quickly changed.

With their backs against the wall, Anaheim battled back and scored two of their own. Like the Golden Knights, the Ducks netted two in a matter of minutes.

The first eight minutes were messy but that wasn’t a shock to the players or coaches involved.

With no preseason you have to evaluate your game. We had some breakdowns a little too much in front of our own net. Some mental breakdowns but we also battled back. We gave up two goals early and we were able to respond the way we wanted to. -Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks captain

After a long time off the ice and a short training camp, it was expected both teams would come out rusty. However, both offenses came out hot and surprised the defense and goaltenders right from the opening faceoff. According to Anaheim’s head coach Dallas Eakins, the early flow of the game was sort of a reality check.

Recap: It took forever but the 2021 Golden Knights season finally got underway against the Anaheim Ducks. Free agent star Alex Pietrangelo suited up for the first time, and newly signed Robin Lehner got the start in net.

The game got off to an incredibly fast start. Jonathan Marchessault scored his first goal just 1:07 into the season. A minute later Tomas Nosek added his first on a nifty between his legs assist from Ryan Reaves. With only 2:13 into their first game, the Golden Knights took an early 2-0 lead. Anaheim responded quickly after and cut Vegas’ lead in half. The Ducks kept pushing and tied the game 2-2 around the midway point of the period.

Both teams settled down in the middle frame. Shots on net were low with both goaltenders shutting down every scoring chance. After 40 minutes the contest was tied at two goals apiece.

The franchise’s first captain gave his team the 3-2 lead :49 seconds into the final period. Mark Stone scored his first of the season, assisted by Chandler Stephenson and new teammate Alex Pietrangelo. Feeling left out, Max Pacioretty joined the party and tallied his first of the season ten minutes later. Vegas took a 4-2 lead, regaining their two goal edge. Alex Tuch tapped in his first of the season with a late empty net goal.

With their 5-2 victory, Vegas wins the season opener for the third time in four seasons. Both teams will face off again on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena. Game is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It was a sloppy first two periods that certainly would have led to some concern had it continued into the 3rd. But, it didn’t at all as the Golden Knights came out and played exactly like they needed to in the final frame and took over the game. They need to clean up their breakouts moving forwards, but they did tonight what good teams do, win when you don’t play your best. (Analysis by Ken)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 ANAHEIM DUCKS 5 (34-22-8 76 PTS) – OT

Recap: The Golden Knights were on a back-to-back trying to extend their five game winning streak Vegas against the Anaheim Ducks. Vegas got on the board first on newly recalled Patrick Brown’s 1st goal as a Golden Knight. The Ducks tied the game on a redirection :02 left in the opening period to make it a 1-1.

The 2nd period featured multiple quality chances for both teams but neither could convert. Malcolm Subban and Anaheim’s John Gibson stood on their heads making some magnificent saves. The Ducks would eventually get one passed Subban to take a 2-1 edge. Mark Stone and Alec Martinez connected for a beautiful one-timer to tie the game 2-2. William Karlsson’s 11th of the year gave Vegas a 3-2 lead heading into the second intermission.

Anaheim tied the game at three :21 seconds into the final period. The Golden Knights regained the lead 4-3 on Karlsson’s second of the game. The center would add a third goal registering his third career hat trick. The Ducks got desperate and heavily attacked the Golden Knights scoring two goals to tie the game 5-5. The game needed an overtime to decide a winner. Shea Theodore snapped a game winner late in overtime, beating the Ducks 6-5.

Vegas’ record improves to 34-22-8 and remain in first place in the Pacific Division. The Golden Knights get a couple of days off and hit the ice next on Wednesday night for a divisional battle against the Edmonton Oilers. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights did well to gut it out through a crazy game in a tough back-to-back and three in four situation on the road. Despite allowing five goals, Malcolm Subban was terrific making a number good saves to keep the game close. Mark Stone played one of his best games as a Golden Knight setting up goals on four different occasions including two of William Karlsson’s three. A nice win in a bad spot keeps the streak alive.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 5 ANAHEIM DUCKS 2 (22-15-6 50 PTS)

Recap: It was New Years Eve on the Strip so the Vegas Golden Knights hosted the Anaheim Ducks for an afternoon faceoff. The Ducks got on the board first, but their lead wouldn’t last long. Mark Stone tied the game 1-1 with his third goal in his last two games. Alex Tuch jammed one through with :20 seconds left in the 1st period to give his team the 2-1 lead.

Reilly Smith scores the only 2nd period goal, taking advantage of another Ducks mistake. Smith registered his 15th goal of the season, stretching Vegas’ lead to 3-1.

Jonathan Marchessault extended the lead to 4-1 with his first penalty shot of the season. The Ducks would get one back to get within two but Vegas would come away with a 5-2 victory.

Vegas’ record improves to 22-15-6 winning their last game of 2019. They’ll next take the ice on Thursday night against the Philadelphia Flyers. Game is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: A dominant 1st period looked like it was headed for a frustrating deficit but a couple fortunate plays helped get Vegas the lead they deserved. From there they controlled the game completely and were never really in any danger of losing it. An easy win that continues to remind us of how good this team can be when they are playing well.
