Praise Be To Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Hockey Website



Recap: The Golden Knights were looking to wrap up their quarterfinal series against the Winnipeg Jets with a Game 5 victory at home. Vegas immediately attacked Winnipeg’s zone and scored :50 into the game. Chandler Stephenson tapped in his third goal of the series off a great feed from linemate Mark Stone. After the opening 20 minutes the home team led 1-0.

Vegas’ offense heated up in the middle frame, receiving three goals in the first eight minutes of the period. Stone doubled the score :42 seconds in, William Karlsson scored his fourth goal of the series, followed by a second goal from Stephenson. The Golden Knights took a commanding 4-0 lead into the second intermission.

In the final period the Golden Knights protected their four-goal lead and continued to frustrate the Jets offense. Winnipeg broke the shutout, but Vegas killed the clock and sealed the series with a 4-1 victory.

The Golden Knights clinched their first-round series with a 4-1 victory over the Jets. Vegas will now rest and prepare for the winner of the Edmonton-Los Angeles series. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Vegas has been in the situation of being up 3-1 in a series many times before. They haven’t had a ton of success in it. It seemed like they were aware of that history tonight and were willing to do whatever they needed to in order to avoid the slippery slope that comes with losing this game. They came out on fire with the forecheck completely eating the Jets alive from the very first shift of the game. It was only 1-0 after one period but the dominance of the 1st was just foreshadowing for what was to come. VGK’s best 30 minutes of the series saw them officially ground the Jets (or cut them in half, as I prefer). (Analysis by Ken)

What Did We Learn About The Golden Knights In Round 1


  1. Rashaad

    The fifth game is the hardest one to win. Just ask Toronto. Just ask Boston.

    But……. The VGK stomped on their necks and wouldn’t let them breathe.

    • Pistol Pete

      And Carolina. VGK only one of the four teams to go up 3-1 to advance in five. Did it by winning four straight though the Devils still have a chance to do that but in six.

      Laurent Brossoit 29/30.

      • THE hockey GOD

        you realize the JETS were playing on one leg , with one armed tied behind their back, and an eye patch over the good eye ?

        With their BEST players out injured ?

        Say it. Stop your gloating.

        • Ice Warrior

          Gloating? That’s gloating?

          • THE hockey GOD

            yes , pointing out that the other teams didn’t finish like VGK did

            that is gloating, and completely uncalled for. Only satan would make such a post. And it’s sin bin, where evil lurks.

  2. Pistol Pete

    A tough second round awaits.

  3. Pistol Pete

    Carrier getting his feet wet.

  4. Satan

    This is Satan.

    Satan would be pleased if the Oilers / Kings series goes seven games and those teams beat each other up.

    To my fellow VGK fans, congratulations and have a wonderful evening.

    Satan has spoken.

    • The Chosen One

      Hello Satan.

      Let’s hope you are right. A banged up Oilers roster is easier to beat than an up to snuff one !

    • TS

      Satan, agreed. Let the others keep battling! We’re in the best position as it stands now, will be well rested and prepared by 2nd round. WHAT A GREAT START!!

  5. Rashaad

    You guys have got to listen to Rick Bowness post game press conference. Wow! He does not sugarcoat his disappointment in his players. I love that guy. His honesty is incredible.

    In all my years of watching hockey, I’ve never seen a post game statement like that from a coach after getting eliminated.

    • John W

      I think Bowness knows he is probably gone, and just let it all hang out. He played the VGK 8 times this year, and is 1-7. Pretty clear who the better team is, regardless of effort.

      Bowness lost his team this year.

      • THE hockey GOD

        yes John W. not only that but the SN crew after the game ( one of best in business, ESPN is crap) suggested that with so many big name players on JETS roster reaching UFA status next year it is likely that JETS will lose these players and enter a period of re building. They lamented that fact that part of this due to “Canadian teams being unable to sign top notch free agents”. Alluding to the FACT that CANADA is scumbab high tax socialist state in which small market teams like the Oilers, the Jets, and the Canucks can not compete in Bettman’s NHL. THEY SAID IT , right there on the air. For all to hear. The implication is clear. If you have a problem with that, then bring it up with Elliot F. Kelly Hrudy, and other two SN commenters.

        You can tell by the body language of Bowness after the game that he was deeply, deeply disappointed and truly sad. He is friends with VGK coach John Stevens. Maybe the both of them will work together again some time in the future ?

        • Mark

          Great point on the taxes. Because of idiot Biden and Blue State governors, IMOP, blue States are eventually going to get their asses handed to them too. If your going to sign a 60 million dollar contract where would you play ? New York, New Jersey ? No !! It’s Tampa Bay or VGK or Dallas. You would be an idiot not to.

          • THE hockey GOD

            post of the week “You would be an idiot not to.”

  6. Jailbird

    So round of the boys and those fans of you that didn’t over-react to the first game. Whomever we get in rd 2 will be very tuff. Probably the Oilers. More fun and upset stomachs coming!

  7. Frank

    Stars of the series:

    1st Star: William Karlsson – what a series!!!!!
    2nd Star: Mark Stone – If not for a horrible first game, he gets my first star. Safe to say that the man is back…. glad to have been wrong on the first game hot take.
    3rd Star: Laurent Brossoit – steady, steady, steady… didn’t really give up a bad goal all series. Slammed the door shut in the final game.
    Honorable: Chandler Stevenson. Came alive on the line with Stone again!
    More honorable: All 6 Dmen. Really a team win this series!

  8. Pistol Pete

    That’s the third time in three different seasons the Knights have won four straight after going down in a series. From 0-1 twice against Winnipeg and from 0-2 against Colorado.

  9. Karl

    Is Jack Eichel is a cancer to a team then I want whatever he has.

  10. Bobby

    Awesome performance by VGK, Brossoit solid in net. Last five minutes raised my blood pressure a little, other than that it’s all good in VGK land..

  11. THE hockey GOD

    it was the ZOMBIE GAME, both teams had key players out; yet the depth of VGK was better. Pachal, Carrier, and even EF HUTTON stepped up to the plate.

    The VGK seem to need better conditioning , even though they roll four lines; in third period they appear to run out of gas.

    LIVIN’ on a prayer
    BEND don’t BREAK.

    Now hope that the oilers and kings break each other bones spending up all their energy.

    Meanwhile the BEASTS in the EAST continue to knock each other brains out.
    The Panthers are BARELY ALIVE.
    AND GG and his RAngers are choking so bad it brings back memories
    of when GG was coaching the VGK. GG has no answer. He refuses to
    change his lines, he is standing pat. Sound familiar.
    Now back to the west we can only hope that the WILD DeBoar the Stars. Wouldn’t that be something?

    Meanwhile poopy pants slojoe , who said he would unify, is tearing the country part. The guy is a half wit, a liar. Whatever they said about Trump and Bush and Reagan, remains a bunch of lies, this putz has done 10000x worse. The nation is worse off. The GDP is down down down yet again. A big economist sign of recession. The inflation numbers are still coming in hot. Biden refuses to reduce spending and negotiate putting nation at the largest default in history. His poll numbers are in the grave. His foreign policy is in shambles, another debacle in Sudan. The world is laughing at him. It’s pathetic. War rages unabated in Ukraine with no end in sight. And these clowns complain about “endless wars”. Well they own it. He pushes his “global warming” BS which is a bunch of malarkey. And everyone with a brain knows it. And the fake news media refuses to report on any of it. Not good. This nation is going further down into the crapper.

    Sez me

    the real reason why ABortion sucks

    and birth control begins in the bed room, not on the surgical table (or with taking a kill pill)

    they fail to address the psychological impact on woman’s mental inability to handle killing their own life/blood , their own baby which has a devastating psychological impact on many women who abort their babies . Especially the first time, after they come to realization that they snuffed out the life of innocent victim and committed murder. It takes a heavy toll on them. Sometimes they never recover mentally.

    • TS

      …maybe you ARE a WOMAN, after all….apparently, you know EXACTLY what women think. Or: You’re a mind-reader. Come on, man. Don’t even pretend to know how women think! YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT WOMEN!!

      • THE hockey GOD

        TS likes to judge people on the internet that he/she/it has no clue

        about. A very presumptuous statement, to say the least.

        Bible Gateway Matthew 7 :: NIV. “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

        • TS

          Thg, you’re talking about yourself again! Who JUDGES everyone and everything, but YOU?? Jeez, are you for real, dude???

          • THE hockey GOD

            I didn’t judge ANYONE in my original post above, you are clueless about what judgement is. Just stating facts from common known professional journals and doctors in the field.

            Stupid people posts abound on the internet and are repeatedly called out for their stupidity, now that is judgement. Clueless wanker twat posters are schooled yet again.

            Most unsophisticated posts in this forum, Ian said that . Just repeating it here.

          • TS

            Just WTF does ABORTION have to do with HOCKEY, THG??? DO women abort HOCKEY PUCKS?????

          • THE hockey GOD

            it’s a wonder how some people here get through life not knowing
            how to take care of themselves,
            wearing the same brown stained panties every day if any at all.

            stinky stinky

        • TS

          Why are you SO fixated on dirty underwear?? Got your OWN stinky problems– is that why you constantly project??

          • TS

            On a hockey site: Between all the dirty underwear comments, plus ALL those perverse Transgender/ Teachers-are-abusers comments, it makes me wonder just WHY you are so obsessed…got a fetish or two???

  13. knights fan in minny

    one hellof a series from MR BROSSOIT blueline six had a very good series chands howdy and stoner dominated in the series wild bill was very good with his two way play hopefully the boys will get a couple of well deserved days off

    • THE hockey GOD


      he was motivated because he was back up in Winnipeg. Let’s hope the motivation stays strong !!

  14. Tim

    We may or may not continue to win but make no mistake we have the best defense in the NHL. McNabb, Petro, Martinez, Theadore, Hague, and Whitecloud there is no other team that comes close. Not to many teams can roll out 4 lines of quality players so we may not win it all but I’ll guarantee you one thing all opponents will be worried about us more then I’m worried about them. Home ice throughout so lets take advantage of that.

  15. knights fan in minny

    the glove save from lb when he was sprawled out was outstanding

  16. Jailbird

    We may or may not continue to win. That’s going out on a limb! 🙂 Edmonton scares me. Right now , any penalty you take is a goal for them. We must play fast, tuff but smart. No stupid penalty’s .

    • knights fan in minny

      come on nobody should scare you oilers d can be beat there goaltending is not the best i dont know much about the kings i will have to watch that one tf they play tonight

      • Arnold Rothstein

        i have good inside information that the KINGS are going to make a good game of
        it tonight after their recent let down.

        the oiler’s coach is a schmuck

        • Arnold Rothstein

          Arnold the brain

          completely unrelated to Bobby “the Brain” Heenan

  17. Jailbird

    I said their offense, power play, scares me. It has been unstoppable. We must respect that and stay out of the box, or else?

  18. Richie-Rich

    If EDM, the way you stop that top line is to take the body every time and as early as possible. The Defense has to stay well in front of that line and not allow them to get even close to parallel or they are going to skate circles around them. That means the Forwards are going to have to be very quick to clog up the neutral zone and take away any neutral zone cross ice passing. VGK is going to have to get sustained offensive zone presence against EDM.

    Once they are in place defensively in their own zone they have to keep the potential shooters well outside and take away the gaps.

    On the power play, the VGK passes the puck a lot, but they rarely use their feet to open up potential lanes. That’s got to change.

    On the PK? Just don’t commit penalties because the result will almost always result in an Edmonton Goal.

    • THE hockey GOD

      “the way you stop that top line is to take the body every time and as early as possible”

      can’t do that on PP, it puts the rest of team on four on three situation on the PK not a good set up. Plus on home ice, the home team gets final match up and often times
      their top line is out there against a line that doesn’t have the ability to “take the body every time”. Especially if you have players like Smith, Stone, no. 20, no 22, no 81, no. 27 matched up who are not great body checkers.
