Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


The 1st period began, VGK sucked, and then the period ended in a boring, scoreless tie.

Vegas’ offense got involved early in the second frame, as defenseman Nate Schmidt was robbed by LA’s goalpost. Both teams traded penalties but neither could convert until the Kings Dustin Brown broke through with a PP goal. After two periods of play, LA held the 1-0 edge.

Seven minutes into the last period LA’s Blake Lizotte snuck one past Vegas goaltender Oscar Dansk for the 2-0 Kings lead. Vegas was sluggish offensively again and took more than nine minutes in to get their first shot of the period. However, it wouldn’t matter as LA would put one in their own net, and then the Vegas veterans took over. Mark Stone tied the game with five minutes remaining, and Jonathan Marchessault stole the game with an overtime breakaway game-winner.

The 3-0 Golden Knights will get back to action on Saturday evening night in San Jose. Vegas will faceoff against their divisional rival for their fourth preseason game. Puck drops at 5PM. (Recap by Jason)

Reilly Smith Says A Longer Offseason Has Its Benefits


  1. Mark

    Glass is a playmaker, I love his skills. Stone beat a top flight goalie in Quick. Marchy’s OT goal was amazing. We jelled as the game went on, no doubt. We got a good group of young players, we need to get them ice time this season, IMOP. I’m optimistic about the next 5 years or so. All our goalies are producers, tough calls will be made. Dansk was really good tonight, Sparks was good too. We look good so far, Go Knights !!

  2. Mike G

    I like Dansk a lot but that goal where he lost his stick was odd. Seemed like he just kind of lost it? That kind of thing can’t happen in a real game

  3. Vic

    The vets played up to our typical high standards for an exhibition game. Tuch looked a tad faster and more aggressive. Glass hit a post and set up at least 3 excellent scoring chances. His playmaking skills are evident just about every time he touches the puck. I would love to see him in the opening day lineup but I accept the fact he probably will start the season in Chicago. I have a feeling when he makes the big club, the points will come in bunches, and there will be no looking back for him. Dansk looked like an NHL goalie. The Sept. tune up is looking good.

  4. Tim

    It was one of those games where the best team didn’t win. L.A. outplayed and out skated us but we hung in their and won. Tough choices coming for the final roster

  5. Dave Pros

    Wow, you writers have such a hard time giving credit where credit is due. All you can say about starting the knights turn around was the Kings scored on themselves? Really!!!
    How about ‘Curtis McKenzie, former AHL rookie of the year, (or AHL All Star, or Calder Cup Champion or, any other of a half dozen superlatives like, Wolves playoff scoring leader) started the Knights come back with a hustling mid air diving goal that bounced off a King players stick or, mid air centering pass that ended up in the net’…..
    No, you don’t even mention he played!
    McKenzie was an important scoring and team leader of his previous team ( Calder Cup winning Texas Stars.) He’s a difference maker.
    He’d be a positive addition to the Golden Knights.
    That’s OK, just wait until Seattle picks him up and the 2 teams play each other, you’ll be kicking yourself.
