Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website

Tag: Ottawa Senators Page 1 of 2


Recap: The Pete DeBoer era got off to an incredibly quick start in Ottawa. Paul Stastny gave the new coach his first lead :24 seconds into the game. Marc-Andre Fleury stood tall in the opening period stopping all 10 of the Senators shot.

The 2nd period featured a couple of dangerous chances for both teams but goaltending and team defense kept it scoreless. Mark Stone doubled up the lead with his 17th goal of the season. Vegas held a 2-0 edge in Ottawa after 40 minutes of play.

The Golden Knights took over the game in the 3rd period getting goals from Chandler Stephenson and Ryan Reaves. Ottawa would add two of their own but Vegas would close out the game 4-2. Snapping their four game losing streak.

Vegas’ record improves to 25-19-6 and win their first game under new coach Pete DeBoer. The Golden Knights continue their road trip and next face the Montreal Canadiens. Game is scheduled to start at 4P. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: A goal in the first minute always makes a game a lot easier on the team that scores it. Vegas really needed a lead, especially after all that’s transpired the last few days. They kept the foot on the pedal for most of the 1st and 2nd but weren’t able to bury any more until late in the 2nd. From there, they continued playing well but a few breakdowns in their own end could have really cost them if not for the tremendous goaltending from Fleury. (Analysis by Ken)

The game began like a heavyweight title fight. Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves (6’2) and Ottawa Senators forward Scott Sabourin (6’3) dropped gloves 2:27 into the game. Both players were penalized five minutes for fighting. A couple of minutes later the Golden Knights offense went to work. Reilly Smith scored his sixth goal of the season to give Vegas the early lead.

Vegas had an early 2nd period power play but couldn’t convert. Ottawa took some chances but Marc-Andre Fleury made some tremendous saves to keep it a one goal lead.

JG Pageau score the game-tying goal for Ottawa 4:25 into the 3rd period. Both teams had chances throughout the period but both goaltenders were brick walls down the stretch. The game would need an overtime period, and eventually a shootout to decide the winner. Jonathan Marchessault would win it for the Golden Knights.

Vegas improves their record to (5-3). The Golden Knights travel to Pittsburgh to play the Penguins on Saturday evening. Puck drops at 4P PT. (Recap by Jason)

After killing off an early penalty in their own zone, the Golden Knights scored not one, but two power play goals in the 1st period. With new power play lines, Jonathan Marchessault netted the first one for the new top PP line, while Shea Theodore got the second one for the other unit. The Golden Knights extended the lead to 3-0 with a goal from Nick Holden, his first as a member of the team. Then, following a fight with Ryan Reaves and Mark Borowiecki, the Senators got on the board. Ottawa climbed all the way back to tie it at three, but a pair of “4th line” goals by William Carrier and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare restored Vegas’ lead and gave them the win.

Things did not get off to a great start at T-Mobile Arena with Vegas giving up the first and second goals in the game. However, a huge response down the stretch of the 2nd period got the Golden Knights even heading into the 3rd. An incredible goal by Alex Tuch spanning the entire ice got Vegas on the board and then a power play tap-in by Ryan Reaves tied it. The Senators scored to take another lead, but Vegas got another goal from Tuch to equalize. In overtime the Golden Knights drew a penalty shot that Jonathan Marchessault put home to win the game!

Vegas got a goal within the first minute of the game by Reilly Smith, but it seemed to unravel on them for the rest of the first 40 minutes. Missing Nate Schmidt and Luca Sbisa on the blue line and James Neal and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, the Golden Knights were a complete mess in their own end. Four of the next five goals went to the Senators and Vegas took a two-goal deficit to the locker room after two. The Golden Knights stormed back in the 3rd getting a shorthanded goal by Ryan Carpenter to tie the game but moments later the Senators regained the lead, one they would hold until the game’s end.

Golden Knight score first, give up goals that tie the game at 1-1 and 2-2 and then Vegas stormed out to a 5-2 lead. A big penalty kill with about 7 minutes left allowed the Golden Knights to coast until the final minute. A late Ottawa goal made it interesting for the final :30, but Vegas holds on.

Senators Owner Calls Expansion Draft Rules “Killer” For Current Teams

By now I’m sure everyone has read the proposed rules NHL GM’s were presented at last week’s meeting. Speculation has been plentiful and we’ve even heard The Creator himself was giddy over what might be of his inaugural team.

But there are two sides to the coin. For as excited as we’ve been here in Vegas, owners, GMs, and media types are terrified of what may happen to their team when Vegas enters the league.

The Vegas team if that’s the one chosen, they paid $500 million for the privilege of picking – these players they are going to get, you guys have done the analysis. They’re going to be some good players we can’t protect because of the numbers. – Eugene Melnyk, Ottawa Senators Owner

He also went as far as to say the rules could be killer for certain teams. He did drop the word “privilege” though, which shows he understands why the rules are as they are.

Source: Ottawa Senators Owner Wants To See The NHL In Vegas

Here at we have our eyes, and more importantly our ears, anywhere and everywhere people are talking Vegas hockey.

Our most recent discovery, we have fans in Canada.


Obviously the more friends we have the better. Unfortunately, Eugene Melnyk is NOT on the Board of Governors Executive Committee.

Nonetheless, we’ll take it. It’s great to hear that there are owners actively campaigning for Gary Bettman to grant us a team. The Creator can only do so much, he needs some help, it appears he’s getting it.
