Year 2, Game 73: Golden Knights overcome rough start in 7-3 win against the Sharks

The Knights have now won nine out of their last 10 games. The Vegas Golden Knights pulled off an impressive 7-3 road win against the San Jose Sharks Monday night, pulling within seven points of the Sharks for second place in the Pacific Division standings. The game was chock-full of goals, and it started almost immediately when Logan Couture beat Malcolm Subban just 30 seconds into the game. The five-goal opening period also featured goals from William Karlsson, Mark Stone, Joe Thornton and Jonathan Marchessault. Stone’s goal extended his point streak to six games, and it was one of three...

Gameday: Golden Knights take on Sharks in potential playoff preview

Gameday: Golden Knights take on Sharks in potential playoff preview

If the playoffs started today, it would be a Vegas-San Jose matchup. As it’s been for the last month or so, the Golden Knights are firmly entrenched in third place in the Pacific Division. The race at the top between the San Jose Sharks and the Calgary Flames has tightened, with the Flames sitting just one point ahead of the Sharks. As it stands right now, the Golden Knights would face the Sharks in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. If the Golden Knights lose tonight, then the Sharks will leap frog the Flames for first in the division and clinch a playoff berth in the process....

Knights Nuggets: Here’s to gingers scoring on St. Patty’s Day!

Start off your morning by reading up on some news and notes from Vegas and around the NHL. Let’s go over some news and notes: - After a solid victory over the Stars on Friday, the Golden Knights kept the momentum going on Sunday and took down the Oilers for a big win. And who better to score on St. Patty’s Day than the redheaded Cody Eakin? [KOI] - Also, Marc-Andre Fleury is dealing with a lower-body injury, so that’s not very awesome. [Las Vegas Review-Journal] - Speaking of Flower, all he wants in life is to score a goal and fight someone. And by God, we may want it just as much is...

Year 2, Game 72: Golden Knights secure 6-3 win in fast-paced battle against Oilers

The St. Patrick’s Showdown was a success for Vegas.

Gameday: Golden Knights welcome the Connor McDavid show to Las Vegas

Gameday: Golden Knights welcome the Connor McDavid show to Las Vegas

McDavid has been doing it all for the Oilers recently. Can the Golden Knights find a way to slow him down? Fresh off a win against the Dallas Stars on Friday in the Lone Star state, the Vegas Golden Knights are back at home to host the suddenly surging Edmonton Oilers. Unsurprisingly, the Oilers resurgence can be attributed to No. 97, Connor McDavid, who is nearly unstoppable right now, registering 20 points in his last 10 games. However, the Golden Knights have been nearly unstoppable recently too, winning seven of their last eight games. With the playoff race tightening up in the Western...

Year 2 Game 71: Marc-Andre Fleury helps Vegas steal 2-1 victory over Dallas

Year 2 Game 71: Marc-Andre Fleury helps Vegas steal 2-1 victory over Dallas

Goals from Max Pacioretty and Ryan Reaves lifted the Knights to victory. In an incredibly tight game against the Dallas Stars, the Vegas Golden Knights were able to pull out a 2-1 win. The Knights (39-27-5) were the beneficiaries of excellent goaltending by Marc-Andre Fleury, who made 40 saves on 41 shots. The Golden Knights also saw their penalty kill step up to kill off five penalties. While that’s great work done by the shorthanded units, spending 10 minutes on the penalty kill may be something to avoid in the future. Max Pacioretty scored on Vegas’ first shot of the game, just 18...

The Stars are on the second of a back-to-back themselves, yet are the victors of a 4-1 win against the Minnesota Wild. There is a lot of pressure on Dallas right now, as they are in the midst of a tight race within their own division with...

Year 2, Game 70: Golden Knights lose 6-3 to Flames, fall 10 points behind Calgary in standings

The winning streak is over. The Golden Knights suffered a 6-3 loss to the Flames in Calgary Sunday night, snapping Vegas’ winning streak at six games as well as Calgary’s losing streak at four games. Though Calgary jumped out to a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes, the Knights came back with a vengeance in the second period, scoring twice in the first 80 seconds of the middle frame to knot it up at 3-3. However, the turning point in the game came late in the second when Mikael Backlund scored a power-play goal with 22 seconds left in the period. The Knights challenged the play for goaltender...

GAMEDAY THREAD 70/82: Vegas Golden Knights at Calgary Flames

The Golden Knights and Flames will face off for the second time in three games, this time in Alberta. Vegas has struggled in its last few games in Calgary, so tonight will be a tough test with just 13 games remaining in the regular season. Vegas picked up its six straight win last night with a 6-2 victory against the Canucks. Malcolm Subban will man the crease tonight, while Maxime Lagace will serve as his backup (Marc-Andre Fleury will miss the game for personal reasons). The Flames have one game in hand over the Knights and sit eight points above Vegas in the Pacific Division...

Gameday: Golden Knights look to push win streak to 7 against Flames

It’s the season series finale between the two, as Vegas can inch closer to second place in the Pacific with a win. This past Wednesday’s showdown against the Calgary Flames wasn’t considered a statement game for the Vegas Golden Knights, knowing they’d meet again in a few days. It’s different this time. “I’m not going to say we’re not out of getting into a chance, or that we are going to get a chance to catch anybody,” said defenseman Nate Schmidt, “but these are games that you need to have if you want to try and push these guys. If you drop games to teams you’re...

Year 2, Game 69: Golden Knights pick up nice 6-2 win against the Canucks

Mark Stone scores his first with Vegas, which tallies five in the first in rout of Vancouver. If there was any concern the Vegas Golden Knights were overlooking the Vancouver Canucks, that was put to rest 1:32 into Saturday’s contest. Of course it was because of Mark Stone. You know, that guy who just signed an eight-year, $76 million contract extension on Friday. Stone scored his first goal with the Golden Knights less than two minutes in, which catapulted Vegas to a five-goal first period and an eventual 6-2 win over Vancouver at Rogers Arena on Saturday. Stone’s goal was his 29th of...
