GAME THREAD 19/82: Anaheim Ducks at Vegas Golden Knights

GAME THREAD 19/82: Anaheim Ducks at Vegas Golden Knights

Come chat with us as the Golden Knights look to improve their home record to 5-2-1. The Golden Knights (7-10-1) return home from a four-game road trip that didn’t exactly go according to plan. That’s because Vegas picked up just two points out of a possible eight. However, the Knights are 4-2-1 at T-Mobile Arena this season and have won back-to-back games on home ice. Vegas will look to pick up its second win against the Ducks this season. With Erik Haula now considered month-to-month, Cody Eakin will aim to continue his strong play as Vegas’ second-line center. He enters tonight’s...

Betting Spotlight: Low-scoring affair expected in division tilt between Knights and Ducks

Betting Spotlight: Low-scoring affair expected in division tilt between Knights and Ducks

There could be some milestones tonight. They might be hard to come by with a low count of goals. By W.G. Ramirez The Vegas Golden Knights return home for a pair of games, before leaving again, and they’ll do so without a key member of the second line. Erik Haula is out “month-to-month” according to coach Gerard Gallant. Haula was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a lower body injury, retroactive to Nov. 6 when he driven into the boards near center ice by Toronto Maple Leafs forward Patrick Marleau. And, so, the beat goes on. The beat, being, the same tune Vegas has been humming...

3 things to watch for as the Golden Knights take on the Ducks, again

3 things to watch for as the Golden Knights take on the Ducks, again

Home sweet home. The Vegas Golden Knights are 7-10-1. Not nearly good enough for the first 18 games after going to the Stanley Cup Final. The Golden Knights have a Stanley Cup Final migraine that they haven’t been able to cure yet. But the Anaheim Ducks represent a potential cure. The last time these two teams met, Vegas won 3-1 in dominating fashion. John Gibson did his best to steal the game for the Ducks, but the Golden Knights were just too overpowering. Here’s how the Knights can get another win against an important division rival. Power play In four of the Golden Knights’ seven...

Knights Nuggets: Some not-so-great news on the Erik Haula front

Start off your morning by reading up on some news and notes. Let’s go over some news and notes: - Erik Haula has been placed on injured reserve and that, friends, is not a good sign. [KOI] - The Golden Knights’ third line has been, um, not great! [Las Vegas Review-Journal] - Still worried about Max Pacioretty’s slow start? Well, history says things should start turning around for him soon. [The Athletic] In other news... - The Coyotes just signed Jakob Chychrun to a pretty big contract extension. [Sportsnet] - It’s looking like the NHL will have its vote on the Seattle expansion...

Golden Knights place Erik Haula on injured reserve

Golden Knights place Erik Haula on injured reserve

Not good. When Vegas Golden Knights forward Erik Haula was stretchered off the ice in last week’s meeting with the Toronto Maple Leafs, it was widely feared that the 27-year-old Finn would be out of action for a substantial amount of time. And now we may have gotten that confirmation. The Golden Knights placed Haula on their injured reserve list Tuesday, which you can view on the team’s website. It is still unknown exactly how long Haula could be out of the lineup, but his placement on IR certainly isn’t a good sign. Golden Knights assistant coach Mike Kelly was unable to give an...

Betting Spotlight: Value is high on the Panthers

Looking to make a good bet? We’ve got you covered. By W.G. Ramirez The Vegas Golden Knights were back at City National Arena one day after closing out a four-game road trip that spanned six days. Suspended defenseman Nate Schmidt was back for his first home practice since the end of training camp. Coach Gerard Gallant took a maintenance day, and in the coach’s press conference, assistant Mike Kelly said it’s time to: “keep it a little bit more simple. Like, not complicated.” The Golden Knights, he added, are overthinking, causing them to play slower. A sure contribution to the...

Start off your morning by reading up on some news and notes. Let’s go over some news and notes: - The Golden Knights officially have a sled hockey team, so that’s pretty freaking awesome. [Golden Knights] - Have you noticed that the Golden Knights just haven’t looked all that fast this season? Well, they haven’t. And Nate Schmidt’s taken notice. [Las Vegas Review-Journal] - The Knights haven’t been winning many games, so maybe it would be a good idea to start making some lineup changes.

Start off your morning by reading up on some news and notes. Let’s go over some news and notes: - The Golden Knights lost again last night. It was pretty miserable. Things are not looking great right now, folks. [KOI] - Are the Knights a good team? Right now, we’re not too sure. But we can positively say that they’re quite unlucky. [KOI] - Like his new team, Max Pacioretty has had a slow start the season. But it’s hard to believe he won’t get things going soon.

Year 2, Game 18: Golden Knights run over by Bruins 4-1

Year 2, Game 18: Golden Knights run over by Bruins 4-1

Let’s get ready to panic! The Vegas Golden Knights dropped another one. This phrase is getting a lot of use this year, isn’t it? Last year, it took Vegas 39 games to lose ten games in regulation. This year, it’s a feat accomplished in 18 games. That’s not a great sign. But don’t blame this one on Malcolm Subban. Vegas got out-possessed 59-55 in terms of Corsi across all strengths and 44-38 at 5-on-5; Vegas got outshot (29-27 at 5-on-5) and Vegas took far too many penalties (giving Boston several 5-on-3 opportunities and seven power plays). Somehow, Boston only score on one of...

GAME THREAD 18/82: Vegas Golden Knights at Boston Bruins

Come chat with us as the Knights close out their four-game road trip in Beantown. The Golden Knights (7-9-1) have just two out of a possible six points thus far on their four-game road trip but have a chance to even things up with a win tonight in Boston. Malcolm Subban is the likely starter for Vegas as he makes his second career start against his former team. Subban is 0-2-0 with a 2.84 goals-against average and .881 save percentage in three appearances this season. His first start as a Golden Knight came against these Bruins last year, a game in which Subban made 21 saves and picked up...

Betting Spotlight: Close contest expected as Golden Knights go to Boston

Both teams are on a back-to-back. Both teams could use a win. By W.G. Ramirez One final road game for the Vegas Golden Knights, as their four-game road trip ends in Boston, where the Bruins are laying a healthy -165 to the defending Western Conference champions. Vegas (7-9-1) opened Saturday’s game in Montreal with a strong 20 minutes, and a 2-0 lead. Then, as they have many times this season, the Golden Knights collapsed, allowed their opponent to seize control of the game, and eventually lost the game. Last year at this time - after 17 games - the Golden Knights were 10-6-1. That’s...

Canadiens 5, Golden Knights 4: 5 things we learned from Max Pacioretty’s return to Montreal

Canadiens 5, Golden Knights 4: 5 things we learned from Max Pacioretty’s return to Montreal

A hard-fought game ends in a loss. The Golden Knights entered Bell Centre looking to earn their second straight victory Saturday evening, but there was more than just a pair of points on forward Max Pacioretty’s mind. For Pacioretty, Saturday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens marked the first time in his career that he’d be facing off against the team that drafted him back in 2007. And while his departure from Montreal didn’t exactly come under ideal circumstances, he still spent roughly a decade representing the Habs’ red and blue. It was an important night for the one known...

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. The Golden Knights are good.

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. The Golden Knights are good.

They sure as hell aren’t lucky. How did we get here? A Stanley Cup Final run, the most successful expansion team of all time, great hope for the future. Three of the Golden Knights’ most important players have already received long-term deals this season. William Karlsson will likely get one at the end of the season. All of this builds up to a 7-9-1 record to start the year? No. That can’t be how this is going, right? The Golden Knights are outclassing opponents in terms of Corsi, shot share and high-danger share, ranking in the top three in the NHL in each of those categories at...

Year 2, Game 17: Golden Knights blow early lead, lose 5-4 to Canadiens

Pacioretty shined in his return to Montreal, but couldn’t find the back of the net to help secure the win. We all expected a great game, and boy did we get one. After a dominant first period it seemed as if the Vegas Golden Knights were going to run away with it, but the Montreal Canadiens battled back with three goals in the second period to keep things interesting. After that, the two teams kept exchanging goals until Montreal ultimately got the last one. Naturally, that goal came from former Knight Tomas Tatar — who Vegas traded in order to acquire Max Pacioretty. The Golden...

Come chat with us as Max Pacioretty returns to Montreal! Tonight is the night Max Pacioretty has been waiting for since Sept. 9. That’s the night the Canadiens traded him to the Golden Knights, and tonight’s the night he’ll return to Montreal to face his former team for the first time in his career. It’s also a night Tomas Tatar has had circled on his calendar since that same night in September, as he was part of the package Vegas gave up to acquire Pacioretty. Tatar has gotten off to a great start to the season, scoring six goals and 14 points in 16 games. Marc-Andre Fleury and the...
