Golden Knights' Offense Continues to Be Their Kryptonite

September 14th, 2020 Upon entering the Western Conference Final against the Dallas Stars, the Vegas Golden Knights seemed to be following an interesting trend. Their offense is producing high-quality chances and generating plenty of shots, but they cannot find the back of the net. This unusual combination of the large...

The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced to the Western Conference Final for the second time in three years. Although they lost Game 1 to the Dallas Stars, the Golden Knights have shown tremendous skill both offensively and defensively throughout the playoffs. So, what better way is there to highlight these players than by presenting them with some mid-playoff awards? The categories being presented are best defensive forward, best defensive defenseman, biggest breakout player, and most valuable player. Best Defensive Forward This award is basically the Selke without the proper title. For the Golden Knights, their collective defensive effort has been one of the reasons for their success. As a team, they have one of the lowest shots against averages throughout the playoffs. The player that will receive this award is Mark Stone. Nominated for the Selke last season, Stone has continued to show his defensive skillset during the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Vegas Golden Knights right...

Golden Knights Goaltending

The Vegas Golden Knights have made headlines in the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs not only for their high level of play, but for a certain goalie situation that crept in out of nowhere. The battle between Robin Lehner and Marc-Andre Fleury for the starting job has caused headlines. The most prominent one being a now deleted tweet from Fleury’s agent of his client being stabbed in the back with a sword. However, with head coach Peter DeBoer’s decision of starting Lehner in Game 7 in the tail-end of back-to-back games, it seems like the drama is over. Lehner Is the Starter Lehner has proven his worth for the Golden Knights in his short time with the team. He went undefeated during the regular season and holds a record of 8-4 with a 1.99 goals against average in the playoffs so far. Lehner was not the first choice for many fans heading into the playoffs, but his performance is starting to turn some heads. In the Vancouver series, the 29-year-old goaltender posted three...

Every single year, Canadian fans are force-fed a nonsense narrative that we must back our last remaining city battling through the postseason. That's beyond illogical, for a number of reasons. I'm here to clear any confusion — with only USA-based cities now remaining — on who all of my Canadian neighbours should be cheering for from here on out. If you happen to be a fan of the Canadian team that's stuck around the longest throughout any playoffs, then it certainly makes sense that you'd continue to cheer them on. However, if you weren't already in their corner, there is no rationalization for why you'd be forced there for the last few weeks of the playoffs. Now, with no more of our cities remaining, this debate has become even more irrelevant. Yet, being that we're fans of the game in general, we're all likely to keep watching. If our favourite is no longer involved, and without the obligatory default...

With the NHL down to its final four playoff teams, there are a handful of players who have emerged as front-runners for the Conn Smythe Trophy as postseason MVP. After having scored 25 points in 15 games, Nathan MacKinnon looked like he was going to run away with the award until his Colorado Avalanche lost in seven games to the Dallas Stars. His exit from the postseason has paved the way for other star players to receive attention for the award. Some of the favorites listed below (in no particular order) are players who probably would not have started on a Conn Smythe prediction list prior to the playoffs. However, they are among the best players in the league who have shown enough production to support their candidacy and have favorable conditions going forward. Brayden Point, C, Tampa Bay Lightning  Brayden Point sits in second place with 18 points among active playoff scorers, but his real contribution to the Tampa Bay Lightning is in the form of clutch scoring. In...
