Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 ARIZONA COYOTES 1 (Pre-Playoffs Exhibition Game)

Recap: It was the Golden Knights first game action since March, but you wouldn’t know it by watching the first period. Vegas played vintage Golden Knights hockey scoring two goals on special teams. Reilly Smith scored both goals, one shorthanded and the other on the power play. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all five shots from Arizona holding a 2-0 Vegas lead.

The score didn’t change after two periods of play. Fleury was sharp again, and the Golden Knights penalty kill unit did a strong job of shutting down the Coyotes PP.

Leading 2-0, the Golden Knights continued to control the game. Midway though the third period, Arizona finally snuck one by Fleury on the power play. Alex Tuch put Vegas ahead by two late in the game and Nick Cousins sealed the deal with seconds remaining. Fleury saved 22 of 23 shots and skated off with a 4-1 victory.

The Golden Knights play their first official playoff game on Monday against the Dallas Stars. It will be the first of three Round Robin games Vegas will play. Game time is scheduled for 3 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights looked like the much sharper team in the meaningless game against Arizona. It was excellent to see Reilly Smith puck up his great season where he left off. The Golden Knights weren’t great at 5-on-5, but they did enough getting the late goal from Tuch. All in all, not too bad for the only exhibition game. (Analysis by Ken)

    I thought the Knights were ok last night Plenty of work needed on PP. (They need #67). So many PP prevented the game from having much of a flow. Flower looked good, even with a low number of SOG. He’s still fighting an uphill battle to be the starter when PO begins. Panda IS DeCoaches preferred #1. We’ll see how he performs Monday, etc….

    Decent game power play needs work. I’m worried about Reeves getting suspended hopefully only one game. Patch would sure make a difference adding a little fire power but will he play who knows.
