Today’s game against Montreal marks the end of a long six-game road trip. The Golden Knights have only three points in five road games, but the the trip hasn’t been a complete failure. After two disastrous games in New York, and one boring matchup in Boston (that for some reason people still think they played well in), the team perked up again in Ottawa. Vegas earned their three points with impressive performances against the Senators and losing to Toronto in a shootout. The Maple Leafs are one of the league’s most offensive teams, and Vegas kept up with three tallies of their own. Winning in Ottawa and coming back to force overtime in Toronto were strong statements by the traveling Golden Knights.

Although Vegas went on to lose in hockey’s Mecca, the comeback Knights made it a nail-biter, and probably should have won in overtime. The Golden Knights are impressively one of the NHL’s leading teams with five comeback victories. While it’s technically not a comeback, earning one point against Auston Matthews and the Maple Leafs feels like a win.
