Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website


The game started out with the Kings really trying to bring the physicality, it ended up leading to a penalty on Kyle Clifford, but the Golden Knights squandered the power play having a very rough time entering. That seemed to energize the Kings and for the first period of the nine in the series Vegas looked a bit unsure of themselves. LA scored first on a goal from Alex Iaffalo. The Golden Knights turned the heat up a bit in the 2nd, but couldn’t ever create much than one shot at a time. The game’s flow kind of got away from the Golden Knights through two with a couple penalties and a terrible offensive power play that breathed some life into the Kings. The Golden Knights killed an early penalty, then started getting their offense going and it led to an incredible shift from the 3rd line that tied the game with a Cody Eakin goal. Then, like Vegas often does, they pounced and pounced in a big way. An individual effort goal from James Neal, then another from William Karlsson and Vegas had a 3-1 lead. Anze Kopitar made it interesting, but the Golden Knights hung on. They’re up 3-0 with a chance to sweep on Tuesday night.

    Go Knights Go……….. A sweep would be great, but winning the series at home would be awesome

    • Joe

      End it as soon as possible. There are 8 players from that 2014 team that pulled off the reverse sweep against the Sharks. Come out Tuesday with your hair on fire and end it early. Clifford and Co. will try everything they can to try to get the Knights to take penalties. Play fast, play smart and end it with a handshake.

      • Mark

        Absolutely agree. Just end it. Who cares where. Let the Next home game be game 1 of round 2.

  2. Mike

    Totally agree about end it as soon as possible! Having been a Kings fan for many years, I am well aware of their history.
    Regarding the VGK Power Play being dead….remember, we are playing the #1 PK in the entire league.

  3. Vic Telesino

    Smith, Neal and Perron have the rust off, and our team is extremely dangerous. I’m praying we stay healthy as our guys have that look and feel again. It’s great we have depth in case of problems, but it was evident that our guys who are turnover machines were on the bench and not in the lineup. Three goals and two posts in a most amazing third period where the Kings looked tired. Onward to glory.
