Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


Recap: The Golden Knights and Florida Panthers met up for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Panthers struck first four minutes into the contest on a point shot through traffic. Florida and Vegas would swap penalties which led to Mark Stone’s game-tying power play goal. After the opening period, Game 3 was locked 1-1.

Both teams were awarded a power play in the middle frame and Vegas took advantage of the opportunity. Jonathan Marchessault roofed a saucer pass from Jack Eichel giving the Golden Knights their first lead of Game 3.

Vegas opened the period on the man-advantage but failed to score their third PP goal of the game. Adin Hill made some key stops down the stretch to preserve the Golden Knights’ 2-1 advantage.

Both goaltenders were sharp in the final period, making several quality saves to keep it a one-goal game. With time running out the Panthers pulled their goalie for an extra attacker. Florida put on some heavy pressure and tied the game before the two minute mark.

Florida killed off an early penalty and found a way to win Game 3 in overtime 3-2.

The Golden Knights drop Game 3 but hold a 2-1 series lead. Vegas will try and bounce back with a win in Game 4 on Saturday night. Puck drop for Game 4 is scheduled for 5 PM.(Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Vegas had to try and withstand a much better push from the Panthers to start the game. VGK were struggling under the strong forecheck for the first time in the series and allowed some dangerous chances because of it. A huge 4-on-3 power play chance was converted to stem the tide in the 1st and then the Golden Knights took complete control in the 2nd period. They were so much stronger at holding pucks in the offensive zone and it tilted the ice and forced a parade to the Panthers’ penalty box. VGK locked it down as strong as they ever have in the 3rd. But the moment the goalie came out, VGK were outnumbered around the net and it sent the game to OT. A huge penalty drawn by Stephenson sent the Golden Knights into OT with a chance to regroup and come out and win the game. They couldn’t capitalize and then the first real chance for the Panthers beats Adin Hill. Tough one to lose considering VGK outplayed the Panthers most of the night. We knew they were in for a fight, still have control though at 2-1. (Analysis by Ken)

It Can’t Be This Easy For The Golden Knights, Can it?


Game 3: What Went Right, What Went Wrong, What Needs To Change


  1. Michael Shevlane

    Vegas in 5.

  2. I hope you are right but not terribly optimistic that will be the case. I guess your assuming they will win Saturday. Not sure that’s a great assumption but again hope it’s the case. They shouldn’t have lost tonight as they were the better team but winning isn’t easy which l am sure now Jason can appreciate.

  3. DL

    Do you ever read what you write?

  4. TS

    Well, we lost one…at least we kept it
    close, unlike the blowouts we handed the Cats so far. The Cats kept their claws hidden and actually played Hockey, NOT Roller Derby, and a real game ensued! Saturday should be a great game!!

  5. DeezNutz

    You can’t let Florida hang around like that or they will win every single time! I knew the game was over when it was a 1 goal game with under 5 to play. Smith needs to show the fuck up at some point because he’s been a ghost for 2 months now he’s been so disappointing, Whitecloud and the Stone line had a brutal game, Eichel needs to shoot the puck way more and for fuck sakes somebody cover Tkachuk when it’s a 1 goal game and time is running out! They should go watch that entire Boston series because that’s where this is heading if they lose game 4. Knights in 7.

    • David Thew

      I hope it is done in 6, not 7. We need to correct our scheme. They couldn’t win at the blue line. Hopefully this is a wake up call for VGK.

  6. Jailbird

    Our special teams and Hill were very good. We were a little off in 5 on 5. A split is still the goal. Two minutes short of winning the game. It’s ok. Being up 2-0 allows to lose a game like this. Don’t panic people. Saturday is the big game!

  7. Former season ticket holder

    It appeared that Whitecloud and Hauge were struggling with the puck … CV ould have been added pressure, crappy ice, or losing position defending the net….especially allowing Tkunk to get between him and Hill…game over…and Smith? Yes big concerns..where is he? We haven’t seen an attempt at intercepting a power play from the kitties… is he injured?

  8. Anand

    Anand won’t be censored.
    Gangsta Gangsta

    Let’s go Golden Knights

    Homies all standin’ around, just hangin’
    Some dope-dealin’, some gang-bangin’
    We decide to roll and we deep
    See a brotha on Dayton’s and we creep
    Real slow, and before you know
    I had my shotgun pointed in the window
    He got scared, and hit the gas
    Right then, I knew I has to smoke his ass
    He kept rollin’, I jumped in the bucket
    We couldn’t catch him, so I said fuck it
    Then we headed right back to the fort
    Sweatin’ all the bitches in the biker shorts
    We didn’t get no play, from the ladies
    With six brothas in a car are you crazy?
    She was scared, and it was showin’
    We all said “Fuck you bitch!” and kept goin’

    • knights fan in minny

      get lost alex you piece of shit

    • knights fan in minny

      losers like you dont get ladies go have another 40 loser

      • David Thew

        He gets a 40 ounce malt liquor, sits on a street corner with his (laughing while I say this) other gangsta wannabes, playing this hate speech bs, all the while, thinking he’s tough. The only “lady” he has, goes by the name of “Rosie”).

  9. Anand

    Free speech for Anand

    Free speech for the hockey god

    • David Thew

      Such a tool….

    • David Thew

      Such a tool….Free speech doesn’t give you the right to make death threats or hate speech.

      • Anand

        Death threats? Hate speech?

        What the hell are you talking about? Those are lyrics to a song. I have threatened or hated on anybody. You scare very easy.

        • knights fan in minny

          shut up you fucking punk

          • David Thew

            Give that punk hell. He talks trash about something that isn’t even remotely related to hockey. Just a punk troll.

        • David Thew

          And you talk gangsta trash, spreading/pushing that hate speech garbage. Just a wannabe trash talker. Talking about killing people in drive by’s. Killing cops. Song or not, YOU push the narrative. PLUS, this is a VGK blog. What does your idiotic trash talking have to do with hockey? NOTHING! Just a troll on the Internet.. Don’t go away mad, little man, just go away.

    • knights fan in minny

      get lost ass hole

  10. knights fan in minny

    good pp good pk a hellof a pass from jack to marchy lace them back up saturday and take care of business

    • David Thew

      Yeah, we need to walk away with 1 win in FL. Then home for all the marbles.

  11. Rashaad

    Florida made this series much tougher now that they actually decided to play hockey instead of all of those shenanigans after the whistle and giving Vegas all of those powerplays. There can’t any panic now, even if they hypothetically lost tonight. (believe me that is the last thing that I want)

    Vegas is the superior team that needs to win 2 out of the next 4 games. They’ve got to keep rolling and keep playing the same way. There have been no passengers. I feel strongly that Vegas can win two more games in the last four.

    • David Thew

      Let’s hope it is done in the next 2. Win tonight, than close it out at home. Also, I know that it’s basketball, but, being from Colorado originally, I am also rooting for the Denver Nuggets. It would be a sweet, package deal for me.
