Recap: Tomas Nosek scored his eighth goal of the season early in the game giving the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead in Los Angeles. Alex Tuch quickly made a two-goal with his second goal in two games. The Kings got one back but Max Pacioretty bounced a puck in LA’s net to take a 3-1 lead into the first intermission. 

The two teams matched goals in the 2nd period with Vegas getting one from Chandler Stephenson. After 40 minutes the Golden Knights held a 4-2 advantage. 

The offense didn’t slow down for Vegas. Marl Stone and Alex Pietrangelo pitched in goals to stretch the lead to 6-2. Marc-Andre Fleury was strong in net stopping 20 of 22 shots. 

Vegas’ record improves to 29-11-2 after defeating LA 6-2. Vegas travels south to take on the Anaheim Ducks for the next two games. Friday night’s game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Yes! This is what the Golden Knights need to look like. They played incredibly aggressively offensively which included a full complement of four lines with the ability to score. They were attack-oriented all night long and overwhelmed the Kings with their speed and skill. Newcomer Mattias Janmark was terrific and Tomas Jurco’s impact on the fourth line was noticeable. Play like this and Colorado might be in for some trouble.  (Analysis by Ken)

Recap: Vegas got off to a slow start in their second game of a back-to-back. The Kings struck first taking a 1-0 lead 9:41 into the game. The Golden Knights had a few chances late in the period but couldn’t take advantage. 

The King’s took a two goal lead midway through the 2nd period. However, the Golden Knights made a strong push to tie the game 2-2. Nic Roy scored Vegas’ first goal with a nifty flip past LA’s goaltender. Captain Mark Stone tied the game with a shorthanded goal before the period expired. 

Vegas continued to pressure LA in the 3rd period and eventually took the lead on Alex Tuch’s 14th of the season. The Golden Knights were awarded a 3rd period power play and Max Pacioretty recorded his 300th career NHL goal. Pacioretty’s goal was the fourth straight from Vegas. 

Vegas’ record improves to 28-11-2 after defeating LA 4-2. The two teams will square off again on Wednesday night. The game is scheduled for 7PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It wasn’t pretty for 40 minutes as the Golden Knights somewhat sleepwalked through the first two periods, but a horrific power play by the Kings turned the tide for Vegas. They tied the game and then woke up in time to completely dominate the Kings in the final 20 minutes. (Analysis by Ken)

Recap: The Golden Knights got off to another sluggish start allowing the King’s to score first in back to back games. Los Angeles continued to pressure Vegas’ defensive zone and eventually took a 2-0 lead late in the 1st period. 

William Karlsson cut the lead in half with his 9th goal of the season midway through the 2nd period. The King’s regained their two-goal lead five minutes later. After forty minutes LA held a 4-1 lead.

The Golden Knights offense began to generate more it the 3rd period. Shea Theodore scored his sixth of the year to get Vegas within two. However, the Golden Knights couldn’t get any closer and fell 4-2 to the Kings. 

Vegas’ record drops to 24-9-1 with their 4-2 defeat to LA. The Golden Knights have a quick turnaround as they host the Minnesota Wild tomorrow night. The game against the Wild is scheduled for 7:30 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights just were not crisp in this one. They hung around in the game for a while but a couple of missplays by Fleury really sunk the ship. Vegas charged back a bit but the penalty bug put an end to that. Brush it off, hope the injuries and the suspensions aren’t too bad, and don’t let it turn into back-to-back. (Analysis by Ken)

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

Recap:  The Golden Knights got off to a slow start against the Kings. Los Angeles scored exactly a minute into the game to take a 1-0 lead. Robin Lehner got the start in net and stopped 12 of LA’s 13 1st period shots.

Vegas’ offense got moving in the 2nd period. The Golden Knights were able to generate several quality chances and they took advantage. Reilly Smith tied the game on the power play and Tomas Nosek and Nic Hague gave Vegas a two-goal lead. Lehner was sharp and blanked the Kings in the middle frame.

Former King Alec Martinez stretched the lead to 4-1 Vegas with his 5th goal of the season. Lehner was outstanding in net holding the Kings scoreless for 59 minutes of the game.

Vegas’ record improves to 24-8-1 with their 4-1 victory over LA. The two teams will faceoff again on Wednesday night for their second game of a two game set. Wednesday night’s game against LA is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: For the second straight game the Golden Knights controlled the 2nd period, a period they’ve struggled with most of this season. They amassed a nice lead and then took their foot off the pedal in the 3rd and let the hapless Kings shoot the puck into the boards the rest of the night. Another example of the Golden Knights proving what we’ve known for a while now, they are a lot better than everyone in this division not named the Avs. (Analysis by Ken)

Recap: The 1st period was quiet in Los Angeles. Marc-Andre Fleury started in net and stopped all ten of the Kings’ shots. The Golden Knights went shorthanded once in the opening twenty minutes and successfully killed the penalty to keep the game a scoreless tie. 

LA warmed up in the 2nd period. The Kings scored through heavy traffic jam in front of Fleury. Coach Pete DeBoer challenged goalie interference but the officials decided not to overturn the goal. On the ensuing power play, LA added to their lead. After 40 minutes the Kings held a 2-0 edge.

Tomas Nosek finally scored for the Golden Knights with three minutes left in the game. However, LA regained their two goal lead less than a minute later. Vegas finished had a lengthy 6-on-5 but couldn’t convert and lost 3-1 in Los Angeles.

Vegas’ record drops to 21-7-1 splitting their two-game set in Los Angeles. The Golden Knights get back on the ice tomorrow night when they host the St. Louis Blues. The game is scheduled for 7 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Missing Max Pacioretty the Golden Knights offense looked list for the first 50ish minutes of the game. They struggled on the power play and couldn’t get to the dangerous ice all night. Then, they turned it up a bit in the final 10 minutes but it was too little too late. It’s yet another example of how much this team needs scoring depth. But other than that, this loss is quite meaningless in the grand scheme of things. (Analysis by Ken)

Analysis: Like so many other games against the lesser West Division teams, the Golden Knights were just simply the better team tonight. They out-chanced them easily and showed they are better and up and down the lineup. Lehner showed well in his first start back. (Analysis by Ken)

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. Ducks
16 Games Played
13-3 Record
26 Of A Possible 32 Points
55-29 Goal Differential
.843 Win%

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.

Recap: Los Angeles took a surprisingly quick 1-0 lead :36 into the game. Vegas responded minutes later by tying it up on Reilly Smith’s third goal of the season. The Kings regained the lead but Golden Knights Zach Whitecloud and Chandler Stephenson tied and gave their team the 3-2 lead.

The Kings caught up 3-3 with the only goal of the second period. Both teams traded power plays but couldn’t convert and the game stood tied after 40 minutes played.

Stephenson put Vegas ahead again 4-3 but this time coming on the power play. LA pressured Robin Lehner in the third period but the goaltender stopped everything he faced down the stretch.

With the their 4-3 win the Golden Knights improve their record to 6-1-0. Next up for Vegas is the Anaheim Ducks. The Golden Knights will host the Ducks for two games starting on Tuesday. Game is schedule for 7P PT.(Recap by Jason)

Analysis:A ridiculously open 1st period in which neither goalie was particularly sharp led to a 2nd that was fairly opposite. As the game progressed VGK’s team speed took over and they pulled out a solid win. (Analysis by Ken)

Recap: Vegas didn’t need much time to get going off their COVID-induced delay. Nic Hague, Mark Stone, and Jonathan Marchessault each scored to give the Golden Knights a 3-0 first period lead. Marc-Andre Fleury was sharp in his first game since January, 24th. 

Vegas continued to pressure Los Angeles in the middle frame. William Karlsson scored his third goal of the season 1:35 into the period and Cody Glass added one on a power play to stretch the lead to a commanding 5-0 advantage. Fleury was again flawless stopping all 12 shots by the Kings in the period. 

Los Angeles scored their first goal 7:47 into the final period, and got closer with a power play. However, Vegas stood strong and secured a 5-2 victory.

The Golden Knights win in their first game back from their lengthy COVID delay. Vegas improves their record to 6-1-0. The two teams match up again on Sunday afternoon. Puck drop is scheduled for Noon PT. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights took about 40 seconds to shake off the rust from being off for nine days. They scored and scored and scored again against an LA team that looked they belonged in a game against the Silver Knights, not the Golden Knights. The butt-whipping continued the entire night.  (Analysis by Ken)

LOS ANGELES KINGS 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 1 (36-23-8 80 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the LA Kings in pursuit of a franchise best nine-game win streak. The game didn’t begin as planned for Vegas as Anze Kopitar netted two goals in the 1st period. The Golden Knights struggled to get going on offense and trailed 2-0 after the opening 20 minutes.

The Kings stretched their lead to 3-0 midway through the 2nd period. The Golden Knights were awarded a power play and quickly took advantage. Shea Theodore wristed a shot into LA’s net getting within two. The Kings got their three goal lead back late in the period scoring a power play goal of their own. The visiting team held a 4-1 edge after 40 minutes.

Trailing by three goals the Golden Knights attempted to make a comeback on multiple 3rd period power plays. However, LA continued to frustrate Vegas and killed off the penalties. The Kings closed out the game 4-1 and ended the Golden Knights eight-game win streak.

Vegas’ record drops to 36-23-8 but still remain in 1st place with 80 points. The Golden Knights get a day off and prepare for the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. Game is scheduled for 7p. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The 1st period blues struck again as the Golden Knights allowed a goal on the first shot for the second game in a row. From there the 1st period didn’t get much better and ended 2-0. Then, Vegas turned it on, but Cal Petersen was terrific in the goal. Golden Knights certainly didn’t play well enough to win, but 4-1 is a bit cruel. (Analysis by Ken)
