Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


Recap: The Golden Knights began their five-game road trip with a matchup in southern Florida. The Panthers quickly jumped ahead 4:25 into the opening period taking a 1-0 lead. 

Florida doubled their lead early in the middle frame but committed a costly penalty nine minutes later. Shea Theodore took advantage of the man advantage and cut Florida’s lead in half to 2-1.

Vegas had more PP opportunities in the final period but their special teams came up short. The Golden Knights had one last chance with time winding down but the Panthers clears the puck and secured a one-goal victory. 

The Golden Knights’ record drops to 38-20-6 losing 2-1 to the Panthers. Next up Vegas will take a short flight to Tampa for a battle with the Lightning. Puck drop against the Bolts is scheduled for 4 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: A slow start really put the Golden Knights behind the eight-ball on this night. They weren’t skating well for the first 30 minutes of the game and it bled into every area of the game. As they picked it up, the forecheck started to come alive and they were able to hem Florida in a bit more. However, they didn’t get much in transition and thus didn’t score a single even-strength goal. The slow start is not as concerning to me as the constant issues in breakouts. Florida took away the walls, and VGK just could not figure out what to do. Don’t like seeing simple strategies work so well this late into the season. (Analysis by Ken)

Ivan Barbashev: Best Acquisition By Any Team


  1. Richie-Rich

    I know, everyone is expecting a ton of negativity from me. I fully expected them to win this game. The didn’t skate or pass well for stretches of this game and Florida clearly looked like the better team for most of it.

    I was hoping to get 6 points on this road trip. The next two games will be against top tier teams (TBL, CAR). Win one of those two! Then beat bottom feeding sellers in STL and PHI.

    The team didn’t really deserve to win this one based on what I saw, but they were still in it late into the game and missed several very good opportunities.

  2. THE hockey God

    Eichel is really great! Really showed up tonight! Too bad the ice was really bad

  3. Jose

    Florida merece ganar este juego. Estaban más desesperados ya que luchan por un lugar en los playoffs. Vegas todavía podría haber sacado un punto de esto si hubieran podido sacar provecho de su lugar de poder. Esto sigue siendo un problema.

    Richie Rich necesita irse a la mierda y también irse a follar un perro. Richie Rich es un pedazo de mierda.

  4. Jailbird

    Everyone knows I am a diehard fan … but … if they don’t get their head out of their asses and realize this is a friggin 60 minute game, they are going nowhere! This constant lazy, bullshit starts makes me sick to my stomach! The coach or SOMEBODY, is going to have to wake this team up! Christ!

    • Knights fan in minnie

      I find Satan to be much more helpful

      • knights fan in minny

        hey fake ass poster alex i find the scorpion squad of memphis thumping your brothers great

    • TS

      Jailbird, this game has gotten you riled up! Never heard that from you,one of the most positive posters… Hang in there! Just play 60 minutes, guys!! FINISH the game!

    • THE hockey GOD

      leave God’s one and only son out of this, please.

  5. TS

    SLOW- MO HOCKEY. Not gonna win games that way. On to Tampa…

  6. Pistol Pete

    12-6-0 = 106 pts

    If this trend continues will have to lower the bar. Could get iffy.

    • Pistol Pete

      Oh, Hill 40/42 (.952). Stupendous.

      • Jose

        En sus últimos 12 juegos, Adin Hill ha detenido 318 de 342 para un .930% de salvamento.

        Solo ha tenido dos juegos con un porcentaje de ahorro por debajo de .900 en ese lapso. Los únicos porteros con un porcentaje de salvamento más alto desde el 12 de enero son Linus Ullmark (BOS), Jeremy Swayman (BOS) y Filip Gustavsson (MIN).

  7. knights fan in minny

    the squad was one step slower most of the night panthers playing for a playoff spot panthers should have had 8 goals hill was solid again

  8. Jailbird

    Damn shame for the boys to waste should a fine effort by their goalie ! Ok, I’m calming down some, so see if we can get it together vs Bolts!

  9. THE hockey GOD

    VGK played a very measured game, missed some glorious chances down low.
    West east travel didn’t help.
    Florida has some of worst playing conditions in league. Hard to adjust
    too, very hot and humid rink.

    CAn’t expect them to win every game, write it off, get ready for next against a very beatable team right now

    • knights fan in minny

      tampa has not been very good lately.

    • Sorvino

      You are wrong THE hockey GOD. They could win every single game if they want to they just don’t feel like it.

      Those bunch of assholes are in first place in the Western Conference by not trying hard. It’s disgusting and offensive that they actually lost two games I regulation since late January.

      First place is nice, but they are way behind their pace of 2017-18 when they had a 64-0 record after 64 games and 128 points. The good old days when they put in 60 minute efforts every single night and never lost.
