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)

Analysis: Another slow start left the Golden Knights once again staring at a deficit. Again, they got themselves out of it but again the same problems then cropped up again. Sloppy turnovers followed by goalies not being able to pick the team up. A miserable end to a miserable road trip. (Analysis by Ken)

Analysis: Some time in the middle of the 2nd period the Golden Knights realized they were playing the Blue Jackets. At that moment, they just started whipping shots on net from any and all angles. Naturally, as they’ve been doing all season, the Blue Jackets goalies did not stop most of them. Thus, VGK won… easily. Patera was pretty good too. And Eichel had a hat trick. (Analysis by Ken)

Analysis: The offense finally started to cash in, but it just so happened to come on the same night they couldn’t keep the puck out of their own net. VGK didn’t have enough urgency in the middle portion of the game and watched themselves slip into a hole they couldn’t get out of. One more chance on this road trip to keep from being skunked.

Analysis: It was a tale of two games. Vegas couldn’t do much of anything right in the 1st period, but they completely turned it around in the 2nd and continued into the 3rd. After being unable to win any board battles, struggling to exit, and giving up loads of chances, VGK turned it on in the 2nd and flipped the script completely. They were excellent for the final 40 minutes and got help from a timely shorthanded goal by Reilly Smith.  (Recap by Ken)

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 0 (24-18-6 54 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Blue Jackets got their last home game of their seven game stand. Vegas took two penalties in the 1st period and one ended up costing them the first goal of the game. It was the sixth straight game that Vegas allowed the visiting team to score first. Columbus lead 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes.

The Blue Jackets doubled up their lead 2:06 into the 2nd period. Vegas would try and play catch up for the rest of the middle frame. The Golden Knights were awarded two power plays but couldn’t convert. They continued to trail Columbus 2-0.

Vegas struggled again to generate any offense, and Columbus took advantage. The Blue Jackets stretched their lead to 3-0 deep into the 3rd period.

Vegas’ record drops to 24-18-6 and remain with 54 points. The Golden Knights hit the road and next play on Tuesday in Buffalo. Start time is scheduled for 4P. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights just didn’t have it on this night, once again chasing a game after conceding first for the 5th straight game. Offensively they couldn’t generate much against a stingy Columbus defense and the Blue Jackets capitalized on a couple of opportunities. Vegas looked frustrated throughout as they had a hard time getting extended offensive zone time and rarely created more than once chance per possession. It’s a frustrating way to end a homestand that started out so promising. (Analysis by Ken)
