Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Florida Panthers for a midweek out-of-conference matchup. Florida got on the scoreboard early after Vegas’ net dislodged 2:02 into the game. The refs awarded the Panthers a goal after a lengthy review. Florida held a tight 1-0 edge heading into the 1st intermission.

Nic Roy evened the score 4:08 into the middle frame, scoring his 8th goal of the season. Later in the period Florida regained their one-goal lead on the power play. The home team trailed 2-1 after 40 minutes of action.

Vegas killed off a 5-on-3 to stay within one in the final period. Minutes later Jack Eichel flipped one over Florida’s goalie to tie the game 2-2. Late in the game William Carrier crashed the net and recorded the game-winning goal. William Karlsson sealed the deal with an empty-net goal.

The Golden Knights’ record improves to 28-13-2 defeating the Panthers 4-2. Next, Vegas will welcome Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: It was a fairly evenly played game overall with both teams having stretches of controlling the game. Bobrovsky made life difficult on the Golden Knights for a while, but they found a way to break through as the game went on. Really strong win in a spot where it easily could have gotten away. Offside challenge and a 5-on-3 kill were key. (Analysis by Ken)

Shift In Strategy When Leading Producing Misleading Shot Attempt Numbers


Clean Breakouts Key Vegas’ Comeback Win Over Panthers


  1. Pistol Pete

    Definitely no problem with prospect depth at D. Korczak continues to look solid defensively and has a couple assists in his four games as well (+1). Not bad.

    $10M guy comes through again when it matters the most (10 shots).

  2. Sorvino

    Nice win! Keegan Kolesar was spectacular. I don’t care that much about fights but it’s nice to know that he has that element. He was a force all night. Both assists were primary assists on nice setups.

    • Pistol Pete

      KK was good I agree. That 4th line may be the best in the league, top echelon minimum.

  3. Jailbird

    Great comeback win. Hope Stoney’s injury not serious? Solid game by Hill that kept us in it, especially that 5 on 3 kill. Way to go boys!

  4. THE hockey GOD

    to the ER

  5. THE hockey GOD

    the Refs need more training, they missed a few calls.

    When you have multiple goals look like a rugby scrum in front of the net, then you
    would think the NHL would do something about it. Becoming a trend.

  6. TS

    Both KK and Petro were pretty feisty last night! I’m surprised at Petro’s physical response at net, not so much with KK, kinda hope he is tough in ALL games. The team needs his physical play. Good comeback..
    Never give up, guys!!

  7. Emmanuel

    Florida’s a LOT better than their record so the come from behind was impressive.

  8. knights fan in minny

    i did not think the squad was going to comeback but they dug in and got the win no one really stood out they all did their job good win.

  9. vgk21

    great comeback win. that is 8 this year, which leads the league. that was a necessary win because of the recent win streaks of LA and Seattle, which has propelled them hot onto the Vgk necks.

    BUT, now because of Seattle and LA flying high, and Edm and Calgary starting to move up closer as expected, the Vgk have zero room to waver or falter briefly or play avg hockey.

    and the most pressing issues are injuries (Stone and Theodore in particular) and the fact that the Vgk have lost 7 of their last 8 games vs Pacific div opponents.

    • goalie trade

      then I expect the Vgk to make a trade for Horvat or Domi.

      there is no way they can subsist on top for weeks on end without Stone, and with an already very thin forward lineup depth.
