DETROIT RED WINGS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (9-7-3 21 PTS)

The Golden Knights last stop on their road trip was in Motown for an afternoon faceoff against the Red Wings. Jonathan Marchessault put Vegas ahead 1-0 at the 16:27 mark of the 1st period. With under a minute remaining Detroit was able to tie it up 1-1 on the power play.

In the 2nd period Max Pacioretty continued his hot streak scoring a goal in four out of the last five games. Vegas played strong defensively and kept Detroit off the board in the middle frame. Pacioretty’s goal made it 2-1 Vegas after 40 minutes of action.

The Red Wings tied it up 2-2 midway through the 3rd period. Detroit would keep Vegas’ offense stagnant and would burn the visiting team with :30 seconds remaining in regulation. The Golden Knights lost a 3-2 heartbreaker in Detroit.

Vegas’ record drops to 9-7-3 and went 1-2-1 on their four-game road trip. The Golden Knights will get back on track Tuesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks. Game time is scheduled for 7P at the T-Mobile Arena. (Recap by Jason)

DETROIT RED WINGS 3 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (42-27-6 90 PTS)

It took Vegas seven minutes before they took a shot on net last night against Detroit. By that point the Red Wings had six shots on net and one past goaltender Malcolm Subban.

Three minutes into the game Detroit took the early 1-0 lead. The Golden Knights warmed up towards the back end of the period totaling nine shots against Detroit’s goaltender Jimmy Howard. The game remained a one goal game after the opening twenty minutes.

The 2nd period was not much better than the first. The Golden Knights dull play continued for much of the period as their offense was again struggling to create chances. Vegas would finally get on the board at the 14:43 mark in the 2nd period on Cody Eakin’s 20th goal of the season. Eakin buried home a juicy rebound left in the crease by Detroit’s Howard. The game was tied 1-1 after forty minutes.

Subban was strong between the pipes in the 3rd period, stuffing every opportunity from Detroit. With 10 minutes left to play the Golden Knights were forced to go on the penalty kill in a 1-1 game. Star killer Reilly Smith disrupted an errant pass leading to a breakaway. Smith gave Vegas the 2-1 lead on his 4th shorthanded goal of the season. Detroit added a PP goal a minute later to even the score once again. The game would need an overtime period to decide a winner. The Red Wings would only need :19 seconds to win as Anthony Mantha scored the game winner on Subban.

The Golden Knights improve their record to (43-27-6) and remain in the Pacific Division’s third place position, with seven games left to play. The team will get back on the ice Monday in St Louis. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 5PM. (Recap by Jason)

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 DETROIT RED WINGS 3 (31-21-4 66 PTS)

A disjointed 1st period for the Golden Knights led to the Red Wings having a majority of the possession. A fluky goal by Detroit put them ahead, but the Golden Knights got going quickly in the 2nd. Alex Tuch drew a penalty quickly which led toa Jonathan Marchessault power play goal. Then, the floodgates opened a bit as Vegas tacked on two more, another from Marchessault and one from William Karlsson. Marc-Andre Fleury sprung into action as the period wound down making multiple terrific saves. Detroit scored one to cut the lead to one, but a nice Brayden McNabb rush led to a tip and a goal.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (43-19-5 91 PTS) DETROIT RED WINGS 0

The Golden Knights iced the puck directly off the opening face-off, but that was the end of the bad news for them on the night. Alex Tuch scored his first goal in his last seven games. The Cody Eakin struck twice, once shorthanded, and then Tuch added his second of the night in the 2nd as well. Vegas coasted to the finish line in the 3rd.

Tough Stretches Continue To Haunt Golden Knights

After last night’s 6-3 loss to Detroit, Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant continuously talked about playing the full sixty minutes.

Well we had a real tough third period again. It was an awful third period. I thought we played a great game up until then. But in the third period, we struggled. -Gerard Gallant

The third period struggles Gallant spoke about starts with allowing four Detroit goals on twelve shots. The Red Wings down one, came out to win in the third.

They took advantage of the chances and they made us pay. We just didn’t look like we had the jump in the third period for some reason. It was disappointing because I thought we played a great two periods, but you can’t play 40 minutes or you’re not going to beat anyone in this league. We’ve got to play a full 60 minutes and tonight we played 40 minutes again. Transition is a big part of this game and it’s a big part of our team playing well. But tonight we fed their transition in the third period. -Gallant

Reilly Smith’s just chalking it up to being early in the season.

You got to nip those in the bud so they’re not stretched into five minutes or ten minutes. I think a lot of reasons why we, or other teams get into those stretches is because we’re not making a simple pass. Sometimes you’re trying to over complicate and guys are tired, so it starts to snowball. -Reilly Smith

The Vegas snowball began from the faceoff circle. The Golden Knights won only 42% on faceoffs all night, and lost 12 draws in the third period. Detroit maintained possession throughout the whole period which lead to multiple defensive breakdowns from Vegas. So how will Vegas fix tough stretches during a game?

DETROIT RED WINGS 6 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3 (3-1-0 6 PTS)

A miserable third period sunk the Golden Knights after looking pretty good through two. 2nd period goals by Erik Haula, James Neal, and Jonathan Marchessault gave the Golden Knights a 3-2 lead after 40 minutes. Then the third period happened… 4 goals on 12 shots, and Vegas was no longer undefeated.
