Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Carolina Hurricanes in hopes to get back on the winning side. Both teams had early chances but neither could find the back of the net. The Golden Knights were awarded a power play, but the Hurricanes fought it off. The game was locked in a scoreless tie after the opening 20 minutes.

Vegas center Jack Eichel opened the scoring with a nasty wrist shot, giving his team a 1-0 lead. Carolina would tie the game minutes later, but Eichel drove to the net and regained the lead for the Golden Knights. The home team carried a 2-1 advantage into the second intermission.

Midway through the final period Carolina tied the game off a deflection in front of Adin Hill. Late in the game Michael Amadio made a beautiful one-time pass to Reilly Smith for the tap-in. Smith’s 20th goal of the season gave the Golden Knights a 3-2 edge. Vegas fought off one last push from Carolina to secure a one-goal victory.

The Golden Knights’ record improves to 36-19-6 defeating the Hurricanes 3-2. Next, Vegas will welcome the New Jersey Devils on Friday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The story of the night is VGK’s excellent display at the defensive blue line. They had excellent gaps all night against a speedy Hurricanes team and it forced them to dump pucks in. When they did, the Golden Knights were great going back to get them. This forced the Canes to press a bit more in the O-Zone and it helped lead to a pair of rush-chance goals. Fast games really suit Jack Eichel, and we saw that again tonight. (Analysis by Ken)

    great game by Eichel…not only the 2 goals, but his checking and winning faceoffs and playing 2-way, 200 foot hockey.

    and great pass by Amadio on the winning goal.

    now we see the stretch run strategy…..defensive structure hockey, low scoring low event hockey, and acquire bottom six grinders to carry out the game plan.

    oh, and the alley oop pass to exit the zone when the opponent tries to pinch all night. excellent adjustment by coaches at end of period 1.

    • Pistol Pete

      In the TNT interview Eichel mentioned playing well in their end. I like that. He’s bought into the importance of defending (including to win a Cup). A Cup, even winning the West, will be a tall order without Stone but we shall see. It is encouraging to see wins like this without him for sure. Makes one think playing well in the postseason sans Stone is possible.

      Not sure what McCrimmon and Cassidy have in mind with Teddy Bleuger. With all the forwards healthy Bleuger would be the 14th. With Roy still it’s possible Cassidy scratches Cotter on Friday. We’ll see what it looks like in the practice.

      • THE hockey GOD

        PP best part of that post game interview was ELVIS
        followed by panel singing Elvis, and then arguing about whether
        that was an Elvis song. And of course, the locker room Elvis impersonator.

  31. Pistol Pete

    Dorofeyev and Brisson each scored tonight in HSK’s 6-5 win. Cormier had an assist.

    • Pistol Pete

      Oh and Brission had two assists as well. A three point night.

  32. Pistol Pete

    Still aiming high lol:

    14-7-0 = 106 pts

    • Pistol Pete

      Win the next two and it will require just 12/19 (.632) to meet that goal. Friday will be another big challenge. Keep defending like they did tonight and anything possible. Did I see Kessel backchecking? Am I sensing the PP is about to get back on track?

  33. Pistol Pete

    Nice to see Eichel applying his speed to the 200 ft. game. Get back, take care of things in your end and the breakouts will come.

  34. Pistol Pete

    During the second intermission TNT commentator Henrik Lunqvist explained that the first CAR goal was extremely difficult to defend against. He ought to know. Hill has been excellent.

  35. Pistol Pete

    It’s early but so far Barbashev a noticeable upgrade to Cotter on the top line. Hopefully the physicality and grit he brings is infectious. Would be nice if he can recover the offensive production he saw last season when he went 26 G/34 A. Don’t see why he can’t.

  36. Pistol Pete

    Cassidy on Teddy Bleuger:

    The Golden Knights acquired forward Teddy Blueger in a trade with the Pittsburgh Penguins earlier in the day. “He’s a checking centerman who scored some points,” Cassidy said. “Here’s a kid who alters his game to do what he has to do to play in the National Hockey League. Right away, I’m impressed by that.”

  37. Jailbird

    Nice win. Let’s not forget how well Hill is playing!

  38. knights fan in minny

    huge win against a legit cup contender jack showing why he makes the big bucks big goals hill did his job wild bill had a couple of real nice passes very entertaining game to watch have to stay at this high level

  39. THE hockey GOD


    Eiiiiiiiiicccccccccchhhhhhhhellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll !!!!

    next up
    Teddy Krugar !

    where are all the haters today ??
    “oh we will be in fifth place by now”
    “the FO is crap”
    “the FO will be done by now”
    “the coach sucks”
    “the pp sucks”

    oh boy


    • Richie-Rich

      ThG – Nothing negative to say after this game. It was a solid performance after a complete collapse in Denver.

      All the credit goes to Cassidy and the players for outperforming my expectations.

      The team has two MUST wins coming up or the Carolina game becomes rather meaningless in terms of getting to 106 points. If they get through that then they face NJD, a team that got much better at the trade deadline.

      • THE hockey GOD

        R R

        read my prior post about these “four ” (now three) “upcoming games.

        The beasts from east BAH !!!

      • Pistol Pete

        R-R in Denver they showed up to play, played hard but it did not click offensively I would not call allowing one goal after Hill’s gaffe a complete collapse as far as defending. You need both but defense comes before offense.

    • Sorvino

      THE hockey GOD, my favourite part about the haters are when they tell you that they don’t like being called haters, and that they are not actually haters but realists.

  40. THE hockey GOD

    Frank Seravalli
    Trade details:

    To #NHLBruins: Tyler Bertuzzi
    To #LGRW: 2024 1st Rd Pick, 2025 4th Rd Pick<<<that is det red wings aka dead wings

  41. Richie-Rich

    A quality win against an elite Metro team. Jack Eichel steps up and carries the team on his shoulders. Amadio makes a perfect pass. Hill is serviceable in net.

    Nothing negative to say about this game. More importantly they remain on a trajectory to possibly get to 106 points.

    Marchy gets scrappy.

    If Thompson remains out then bringing in Quick might be a great idea for insurance.

  42. THE hockey GOD

    frank says
    “Vegas Golden Knights
    Top Objective: Scoring Winger
    Secondary Objective: Goaltending Insurance
    Scoop: Vegas added intelligent center and role player Teddy Blueger to their mix on Wednesday, to go along with Ivan Barbashev acquired over the weekend. They still have $5.06 million in Mark Stone’s LTIR space to spend. They could use a winger that could deposit the puck (See: James van Riemsdyk) and also a little goaltending help (See: Jonathan Quick). The Golden Knights were well down the track in trade talks with Columbus for Quick, but needed to clear up a few things on their salary cap before they could make that happen. Vegas isn’t likely to be adding players with term, looking mostly for pure rentals.”

    • Richie-Rich

      We finally agree on something. With the CAP space a goal scoring winger and goaltending insurance is a need. My entire analysis will go out the window if they can pull it off.

      Still waiting to see the Russian invade the Crease! LOL.

      • THE hockey GOD

        that is from Frank Servelli , just copying his quote, see ” and stuff between ” ?

      • stats

        Barbashev should be called “shave cream”

        they are already using the barber pole emoji for him on Twitter

  43. Tim

    John Gibson not Jonathan Quick but what do I know I’m just a baseball guy.

    • Vic

      I wanted Gibson for the long term, but I guess too expensive. Quick is coming instead.

  44. knights fan in minny

    according to tsn the hawks want a second for domi

    • stats

      yes, I like Domi for VGK, but it looks like Carolina may possibly acquire him for the 2nd year in a row

  45. stats

    Lawless does not know wtf he is talking about, when he says that 94 pts will make the playoffs.

    the 2 teams in 7th and 8th final wild card spots right now in the West, Seattle and Winnipeg, have 72 pts and 22 and 21 games left. at that same pace they would end with 98 and 97 pts respectively

  46. Sorvino

    On behalf of the Vegas Golden Knights my boy Jack Eichel and I would like to welcome Jonathan Quick to the Golden Knights hockey club.

  47. stats

    Quick to VGK. no details yet on what goes to Jackets

  48. stats

    VGK have acquired Jonathan Quick from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Michael Hutchinson and a 2025 seventh-round pick!
