Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website

Tag: Ottawa Senators


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.

Hopefully My Kid Can Be As Happy As Happy Hockey Kid

Did everyone see that video of Happy Hockey Kid? If you haven’t, it’s at the bottom of this post. The innocent, silly smile of a young Sens fan, got millions of people to click. Happy Hockey Kid reminded us all that life is just a game at that age. Kid life is fun, filled with laughs, sugar and cookies. Adult life sucks, working late, gluten free, and overtime losses to Edmonton. Remember, we were all kids, and Happy Hockey Kid was probably acting the way we all did at our first game.

I couldn’t help myself clicking on Happy Hockey Kid. I kept watching the young boy smile, and laugh as he was surrounded by 16,000 of his closest friends. To the young Canadian he was the star, and the hockey game just happened around him. Happy Hockey Kid even got me reflecting on my life and my future. Oh man, here we go…

You see I have a little boy on the way, and I hope he’ll enjoy hockey the way HHK and I do. I hope my son acts silly, and innocent as Happy Hockey Kid. That’s how kids should act, having fun, being naive, and having no awareness. Kids have plenty of time to learn about terror, like what happened to our friends in France.

My son will be born in March, so he’ll be toddler age right around the proposed puck drop in Las Vegas. Now to be fair he already has this waiting for him, as Wild Wing and I are already trying to recruit him. His Grandfather, sickened by the Ducks onesie, got this for him. So safe to say by the time my son can put on skates (this summer, eh) he’ll already have a connection to three teams. Sure it’s overwhelming, but I’m sure he’ll make his own choice on which team to predominantly root for.

Yeah you could argue my Father and I are overloading this poor unborn baby with hockey. I talk to my Dad twice a week, and he always asks “did my grandson watch the Bruins game tonight?” And I’ll say something like, “nah he’s getting ready to watch a real team.” My Dad and I are convinced babies can hear game broadcasts from inside the womb. Not too mention my pregnant lady is being inundated with hockey. She reminds us that we’re fooling ourselves, but Grandpa and I can ignore reason. I’ve also been watching a lot of Seinfeld, Cheers and Monty Python with him, you know just to catch him up.

I’m sure a lot of you have children or children on the way and want to share something like hockey with them. Or something else that would make them happy like little HHK. Las Vegas hasn’t had the chance to give parents that opportunity without its own team. Hopefully, soon Las Vegas Fathers and Mothers can root for a team that their children root for. We all have our own team, but for the kids of Las Vegas this will be their home team. Just picture our Knight/Elvis/Rat/Cactus/Scorpion mascot on this killer NHL Mascot bib.

Go ahead watch Happy Hockey Kid again, but this time picture your kid, or grandkid, or even future kid. Picture them laughing and dancing at the Las Vegas Arena making Las Vegas fans smile. Sports is all about kids, bonding and having fun. It was nice of Happy Hockey Kid to remind us all.
