VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 CALGARY FLAMES 0 (10-9-3 23 PTS)

The Golden Knights were determined to break their five-game losing skid against the Calgary Flames on a Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas. William Karlsson got the memo and opened up the scoring with his seventh goal of the season. Vegas battled and kept Calgary off the board and skated into the 1st intermission 1-0.

Both teams traded penalties to begin the 2nd period but the Golden Knights would take advantage of messy play. Paul Stastny made a great move and snapped a shot passed Calgary’s goaltender. After 40 minutes Vegas held on to their 2-0 lead.

Max Pacioretty, Cody Eakin, Mark Stone, and William Karlsson all added third period goals to take a commanding 6-0 lead. Marc-Andre Fleury was once again brilliant and stopped all 34 shots on net to record the season’s first home shutout.

Vegas’ record improves to 10-9-3 and break their five-game losing streak. The Golden Knights next take the ice on Tuesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

San Jose Or Calgary; Who Do You Want First?

If the Golden Knights were to achieve the pipe dream of getting into 2nd place, they probably needed to win in Calgary last night. However, even had that happened, the chances of Vegas going on to not only pass the Flames, but also the Sharks, is about as likely as the Golden Knights giving out a detailed injury report.

So, it’s become fairly clear that Vegas’ opponent in the first round will be the Pacific Division runner-up, either Calgary or San Jose.

The Golden Knights have completed their regular season slate against the Flames going 2-2-0 winning the home ones and dropping the away games. Of course, it should be noted that both games Vegas played in Calgary were on the back-end up back-to-backs and Marc-Andre Fleury did not start either.

As for the Sharks, Vegas is 1-1-0 with two road games to play. The Golden Knights dominated San Jose in the first meeting 6-0 before blowing a two-goal lead to lose the second matchup. The next two are on March 18th and 30th.

The question is, which team would Vegas rather play first. Naturally, it shouldn’t matter as the Golden Knights are likely to have to beat both of them to make it back to the Western Conference Final, but still, it’s an interesting debate as the Sharks and Flames go back and forth with the division lead.

Here’s a quick rundown of the two teams and how they stack up against the Golden Knights.

CALGARY FLAMES 6 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (38-27-5 81 PTS)

It was another horrid start in Calgary for the Golden Knights allowing a pair inside the first eight minutes of the 1st. Vegas struck back with a goal from Brandon Pirri but Calgary extended the lead back to two at the first intermission. Vegas came out flying the 2nd though scoring two quick ones. An unsuccessful power play slowed the momentum and a late period goal, with a little help from a goalie interference call that wasn’t, gave the Flames their lead back again.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 CALGARY FLAMES 1 (37-26-5 79 PTS)

A pair of 1st period penalties on the Flames helped the Golden Knights get on the board. Shea Theodore ripped one home with Mark Stone registering his second point in Vegas. Then, Calgary appeared to tie it up but a goalie interference call wiped the goal off the board. A late penalty sent the Golden Knights back on the PP heading into the 2nd. Vegas failed on that one and eventually conceded the lead as well. They would start the 3rd with 100+ seconds of power play time as well and would do nothing with it. A zinger from Deryk Engelland untied it to give Vegas the lead midway through the 3rd. The Flames had a few chances late with the goalie pulled but Marc-Andre Fleury kept them all out.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 CALGARY FLAMES (11-12-1 23 PTS)

Four nights ago it was 5-0 after one and 7-0 after two in favor of Calgary. Tied through one, and Vegas took the lead in the 2nd with an Alex Tuch tip in. A 3rd period power play goal from Colin Miller extended the lead to 2-0 and some terrific defense throughout kept the Flames off the board. Fleury’s fourth shutout of the year to give him the league lead.

In the final game of the season apparantly no one told the Golden Knights the game began at 7:00 rather than 7:30. The Flames scored three within the first eight minutes of the game and it got worse as the game went on. Vegas headed to the locker room for the final intermission of the regular season down 6-1. In the 3rd the Flames added another as Marc-Andre Fleury was pulled for Malcolm Subban.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (46-21-5 97 PTS) CALGARY FLAMES 0

After a mini-team meeting and a very angry locker room following the four game home losing streak, the Golden Knights were expected to come out guns blazing on the Sunday afternoon game. That didn’t happen as they were outshot 20-6 in the 1st and couldn’t seem to generate much offense. Then, the 2nd happened, and the old Golden Knight returned to the tune of four goals in less than 10 minutes including a natural (three in a row) hat trick by William Karlsson. The final period was about one thing, donuts, and Marc-Andre Fleury delivered the shutout necessary to earn everyone Krispy Kremes.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 (41-16-4 86 PTS) VANCOUVER CANUCKS 3

A wide open game led to a flurry of chances on both ends of the ice. Vegas scored first just 2:29 into the game as Tomas Hyka scored his first career goal. Then Vancouver strick for a pair before the Golden Knights came back to score four in a row and take the 5-2 lead into the second intermission. Vancouver added one more in the 3rd but the game was in hand the whole night, and night that will be remembered much more for the trade than the 41st win in franchise history.
