Vegas Versus The Mighty Eastern Conference

(Photo Credit: Photographer Brandon Andreasen)

All season long the eyes of the hockey world have been on the Eastern Conference. Based on performance and deep lineups the odds suggest an Eastern Conference team will be named the 2023 Stanley Cup champion. Through 67 games, the Golden Knights are making analysts, computer models, insiders, and pundits rethink their position.

On Saturday, Vegas casually shut out the high-powered Carolina Hurricanes to record the team’s 20th victory against the Eastern Conference. Tomorrow night in Philadelphia they can add to that total.

VGK vs the Eastern Conference (30 Games)

  • .700 Points Percentage
  • 3.45 Goals Scored Per Game
  • 2.70 Goals Allowed Per Game
  • Shutout CAR, 1 Goal Allowed vs TOR
  • Jack Eichel vs East: 26 Points (13G, 13A)

Left on the schedule from the East are the Philadelphia Flyers and the Columbus Blue Jackets. Vegas will likely be a sizable favorite in both games. In 30 eastern matchups the Golden Knights would have a total of of 44 cross-conference credits. That’s 47% of Vegas’ 88 total points. Talk about flipping the script.

The message the Golden Knights sent to the East this season has been loud and it’s been heard.

They’re a good team. They hunker down in front and we knew that coming in. That got us behind the eight ball. In the 2nd period we weren’t very good, but we didn’t give up much. Just one bad bounce and it was a breakaway. Then we were down two. We had a good 3rd. We pushed, we just couldn’t get one by them. -Rod Brind’Amour, Hurricanes coach

Not only did the Golden Knights blank the Hurricanes, they also held the Toronto Maple Leafs to one goal back in October. On top off sweeping the Canes and Leafs, Vegas did the same to the Canadiens, Capitals, Lightning, and Senators in their two-game sets.

Vegas has fared well in tight games against the Eastern Conference as well. The Golden Knights defeated Philadelphia, Tampa, Toronto, and Washington in overtime and Boston, Columbus, and New Jersey in shootouts. Overall, the Golden Knights made use of every opportunity they had against franchises in the East.

The big question will be, can their success vs the East continue if they reach the Stanley Cup Final? It’s likely that one of those teams the Golden Knights frustrated in the regular season would be the opponent. It’s far too early to begin handicapping the championship round but Vegas should feel comfortable in any matchup. Especially, if Vegas’ best players perform as they did in cross-conference battles this season.

The Golden Knights have proven to the East that they’re a serious threat but unfortunately, Vegas has to get through the Western Conference first.




VGK Must Boost Analytics To Avoid Inevitable Regression

    The ice in the eastern conference is better – there was a study on it

      • Alex

        Winding this trailer trash POS up is hilarious!

        • knights fan in minny

          remember what i said you dumb fuck you do not wind me up i enjoy insulting a piece of shit loser like you i guess you are too stupid to see that code that you malt liquor drinking loser code for you suck boy. bad ice rules

          • THE hockey GOD

            the moe has multiple personality complex !!!

            what a douche bag, caught with same icon, and two different names


      • Constance Brannen

        Could you please tone it down , you’re really not the least bit funny, just stupid.

  2. Jailbird

    As I have said many times, when they play with desire they can beat everyone! PS – You two are made for each other. Fun to watch, ha!

    • knights fan in minny

      why is that jailbird i stand up for the good people on here this piece of shit does nothing but mock people on here he is a piece of shit trash loser with nothing to contribute but comments about bad ice.

  3. Jailbird

    You don’t consider me one of the good people? Because yesterday you sure didn’t support me regarding that right-wing talk, when all I did was support Jose comments?

    • knights fan in minny

      never said you weren’t thats your battle with jose

    • THE hockey GOD

      Jose, Alex, minnie and the fake hockey God above are ALL THE SAME PERSON

      And KFIM never said a word or replied to you yesterday, talk about being a bit paranoid.

  4. Jailbird

    I have no battle with Jose, I agreed with him! Also, I don’t let those stupid comments from the supposed impostors bother me. The are meaningless . When sticking to hockey, all is well, the political BS is just for attention getting. Who cares!

    • THE hockey GOD

      like this post ? has anything to do with hockey ?

      oh , the irony here.

  5. It would sure be refreshing if all this bantering back and forth took place some where else. Yes l know l can ignore it but it takes up a lot of useless time. It would be one thing it was about hockey and the Knights but it gets off track real fast. I have to believe those involved have better things to do with their time. Concerning the Knights let’s not get ahead of ourselves just keep concentrating on next game one at a time and see what happens

    • Sorvino

      HD Biker. It’s a little bit easier said than done. We all know this is a forum for NHL hockey and specifically Vegas golden knights discussion. But THE hockey GOD will never stop bringing politics up. I like the hockey God, but it is annoying. Ignoring it doesn’t work because 80% of the time nobody responds, and he still keeps talking about politics anyways. Eventually you get sick of it and then you respond. But that doesn’t work either.

      There is literally absolutely no way to stop THE hockey GOD from bringing up politics, whether you wish to engage in the conversation or completely ignore it or agree with him or disagree with him or blah blah blah, there is literally nothing you can do that will stop him from bringing up politics.

      Whether there is bantering back-and-forth on none. It will never stop because the hockey God keeps bringing it up even though this is not a political site.

      So I think you just have to live with it. Once you read through the first couple of sentences and know that what he is posting has nothing new to do with hockey then just stop right there and don’t bother reading the next 8 to 10 paragraphs.

      I run a small construction business doing renovations in the downtown core. I bet you nobody on here cares and nobody wants to hear me talk about it because it has nothing to do with hockey. So I promise I won’t ever talk about it.

      • THE hockey GOD

        I thought you were The hockey GOD?

        Your post is not about hockey !

        Oh the irony !!

        BTW the BEASTS in the EASTS aren’t so beastly.

        PS if you got this far, then a spoiler alert.

        Thought that A Man Called Otto would be half way decent move, but
        with Tom Hanks a known lefty in star role you can’t be sure. The first
        half of movie is decent, then after that it goes down hill as hollywierd
        perverts introduce their anti humanity pervert character. Shut it down
        right there, as it’s an attack on parents, fathers and mothers every where. Sick and twisted perversion. No wonder it got mediocre reviews. And put on don’t watch list by many organizations that have morals, ethics, and further family values.

      • TS

        Well said, Sorvino. Thg and I butted heads for MONTHS over the injection of Politics here; but, perhaps begrudgingly, we agreed to disagree ( as long as I don’t respond to the Politics), and we are OK. It can be maddening, yes. But, he contributes thoughtful stuff on HOCKEY. The man wears many hats!

        • THE hockey GOD

          what makes you think I am a man ????

          • THE hockey GOD

            what’s a woman ? ???

            we have a supreme court justice who doesn’t know, talk about being unqualified for their position, on ly there because of far left diversity BS

          • Knights fan in minnie

            I identify as an old fat woman

        • TS

          Thg, well, are you a BOY? You know too much vintage music to be a boy, I think. And you’re too dang combative to be a woman!Women are peacemakers. Unless…’re a misplaced BOT…but, yes, I think you’re a man…

          • THE hockey GOD

            libtards like to play identity politics, stereotype people, pigeon hole them; whine and cry a lot . Make mountains out of mole hills. Spin and twist. When Biden faults are exposed for what they are. They cry TRUMP. When asked simple questions, they deflect. Play the race card, play the victim card, point fingers at everyone except themselves.

            Like DOC most don’t even realize they are liberals, having been brought up in a brain washed society/environment.

            Funny story, when I first when to San Francisco/ Bay
            AREa and met some people, told them where I was from. They said “oh you are a liberal”. I looked around and said “If this is what it means to be a liberal, then HELL NO!”

            typical smoke screen tactics, won’t fly here.

    what is the buzz in sin city the new qb garapalo i woud have kept carr

    • THE hockey GOD

      Jimmy Garoppolo to sign with Raiders
      Posted by Myles Simmons on March 13, 2023, 2:01 PM EDT

      never liked Carr (or Raiders, and I live here !
      last Raider team I liked
      had Fred B as wide out, Daryl L, George Blanda, the Snake as QB (Kenny and Pete Rose used to sign autographs at Ceasar’s Forum shopping mall), Hubbard and Banaszack as running backs. After they moved to LA, their fan base turned to trash. And most of that trash now comes to Vegas. When I lived in SoCal locals
      hated the trash from Oakland. Now the Dodger fans are turning into that same trash when they go visit other cities in CA, they start fights with locals, hassle locals’ females, and generally are trash low life losers (sort of like the biden supporters on this site- losers with a big L)

  7. knights fan in minny

    i think pavel deserves another game he was terrific.

  8. Jose

    I agree knights fan in minny, Patera did a good job, also agree with jailbird that this team can beat anybody.

  9. TS

    I’ve felt that the team plays UP to the tougher teams, and DOWN to the lower- ranked teams. May be a pattern in the league and sports in general, it just seems more frequent for the VGK. Maybe because our division has been less than competitive overall, Vgk lets down their guard and plays lazy hockey , as we play Division teams often.
    My eye test tells me the East definitely can be a beast to play against..
    tough, veteran, BIG mature players, and when THEY hit a player, you can feel it from your seat! I literally WINCE! Maroon CANNOT be natural..does the league test for Steroids?

    • Sorvino

      Maroon and the TB play a tough brand of hockey. That is for sure.

      • TS

        Sorvino, Maroon scares ME when we play TB! I wonder how many players he’ll try to take out! Hate playing them. . .

  10. knights fan in minny

    where is obvious to ashamed to post because you know you were completly wrong what a coward


      Last I checked the only loser when it comes to Trump and Biden… Is Trump.
      Unless you spend all day tuned into FOX and then tell others how to accept responsibility and reality???
      Oh yes… There is another loser along with Trump! Shut the “F” up already and save your energy to visit the 1st President to to to jail when he gets there!

      • THE hockey GOD

        Curse , Trump has been gone for over two and half years, this blame Trump for everything Biden has done is 1) getting old and 2) just plain stupid and 3) Biden has done nothing to counter anything he blames on Trump. The guy is a train wreck. Obama was right when he said Biden is a major fuck up. OBAMA and he’s one of your own. You and your ilk own this POS in WH.

        Your bull shit lies won’t fly here.

      • knights fan in minny

        keep dreaming dumb ass maybe you can help bumbling stumbling joe blunder walk up the steps to the plane or is that the easter bunny’s job

  11. Pistol Pete

    I checked and found I began my 106 pts projection as requiring a 16-8-2 finish. This was thus for the remaining 26 games. It seemed aggressive at the time, 106 pts, perhaps due to the demanding March schedule which has gotten off to a good start, however the projection required only a .615 win % probably under the season to date win % at the time of the projection. In any case, the 106 pts projection now requires 9-6-0 to be fulfilled, a win % of .600, less than the aforementioned .615.

    If they win tomorrow I’ll get a little aggressive and raise the bar to 108 pts which will require 9-5-0 (.643 win %).

    Btw, I do understand my win % which is simply regulation wins divided by games played is not an official NHL stat (and it assigns no value to an OTL). NHL uses points % which is points earned divided by maximum possible points earned. So when I claim above the .615 win % required to fulfill the 106 pts with 26 games remaining was under the win % season to date, I am making an assumption I did not attempt to verify but it seems a reasonable assumption just the same.

  12. knights fan in minny

    106 points that would put all the nay sayers in their place.

  13. Tim

    I see these outrageous posts by the loonies the main
    reason I don’t post much. ( Stone Fuckin Crazy )

    • knights fan in minny

      loonies man that’s harsh timmy

    • THE hockey GOD

      says the guy who watches and adores madcow 24/7, doesn’t know what is really going on in the world. Another brain washed leftie toon. He worships Don Lemon, and their sick/twisted agenda. Needs therapy.

  14. STONEd boy

    Just imagine how the knights are gonna look with Stone, Carrier, And Roy back in their spots, not to mention being 4-5 goalies deep. I know usually in the playoffs they stick with one guy but I think they should all transition through the series’. It for sure would keep the teams we play on their toes. Sucks hockey is almost over but the best time of the year is coming up PLAYOFFS!!

  15. Jailbird

    Tim, ya got to just try and ignor their BS and concentrate on hockey ! Stone fuckin crazy, might not be far off! Ha

  16. Obvious

    This is without a doubt the dumbest fan base in sports

      • THE CURSE

        Rushed… With all due respect to you and Keegan, with all the injuries VGK has you are concerned with his one???

  18. Pistol Pete

    Fwiw ESPN has Vegas on a 108 pts pace and Dallas 107. At this point my 106 pts call is looking good but still have to go 9-6-0. As I mentioned above should Vegas beat Philly I’ll raise the bar to 108 (9-5-0). This team has done excellent with Stone out plus now other injuries. Good hockey team. C’mon Pavel Dorofeyev with three starting forwards out, grab ahold of this opportunity and don’t let go. Work your butt off!!!!

    • THE hockey GOD

      scoring a goal off your noggin’ is not a trendy thing in NHL these days, St. Louis is not a v ery good measure.

      I’m not republican or a democrat, but from my observation, it seems that Republicans are very weak. How can they be so weak and embarrassing to have an election stolen from them. Complete pussies!
