Golden Knights Must Improve off the Strip

Golden Knights Must Improve off the Strip

January 19th, 2018 In terms of home attendance, the Vegas Golden Knights reside in the middle of the pack – an accomplishment when you think back to all the skepticism surrounding the market's ability to support hockey. However, it gets even better when you dig deeper. The team ranks 4th in 'home attendance...

Injuries rocked the Golden Knight's crease early in the season. First, it was Marc-Andre Fleury going down in the fourth game of the season with a concussion. Enter 'the other Subban' – Malcolm Subban, claimed on waivers three days before the team's first game, was supposed to serve as the primary back-up, playing only when Marc-Andre needed a breather. Now, he was tasked with carrying the load with no assurances of when Fleury may return. Eager to show what the Bruins' gave up on, Subban won his first three starts, while posting a sizzling .937 save percentage. However, in the third period of his third game, Subban suffered a lower-body injury while making a save on Blues' forward Jaden Schwartz. Subban, like his predecessor, would wind up on injured reserve. Injuries notwithstanding, many predicted the Knights' season would be a one highlighted by gloom and doom. Now, they had to do it without their best player (Fleury) and their backup goalie, Malcolm Subban. Let's...

For many, expansion teams in professional sports should suck. They should be destined for a multi-year sentence of futile failure. It's sort of like an unwritten rule that speaks to the initiation of new franchises. As a result, fans are treated to disappointing results night after night and are left with little reason for optimism. Players grow frustrated, drowning in despair while management attempts to quell the widespread panic spreading through a new fan base. The process of building a winner from scratch, which was precisely the task George McPhee faced when he became the Golden Knight's first official employee as General Manager, was assuredly meant to last longer than a single training camp. Attempting to create a masterpiece using inferior resources, in this case, sloppy seconds, should amount to a Luxor-sized failure, no? Accidentally on Purpose Gather a group of professional, mostly proven NHL hockey players in a room. Tell them they will suck –straight up. Tell...

Vegas Golden Knights

Last Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena was a night to remember. Not just for Golden Knights fans (or Lightning fans, sadly), but for hockey fans across North America. For the middle of December, this was the closest we’ve gotten to playoff hockey in Nevada. But it wasn't just that Vegas beat the Tampa Bay Lightning by a score of 4-3. It was how it happened. After the first period, the Lightning held a 2-0 lead thanks to two power play goals. The two teams had played a relatively even period at even strength, with Tampa holding a 12-10 advantage in shots after 20 minutes. The second period was all Vegas, as they outshot Tampa by an 18-10 margin, and scored two power play goals of their own. James Neal scored his team-leading 17th of the year, while Jonathan Marchessault chimed in with his 12th. In the third, the shots heavily favored the Lightning, but Vegas ended up grabbing the lead just over halfway through the frame. Erik Haula tipped in a Shea Theodore point shot...

Tis the season to be jolly as there is a festive atmosphere ringing throughout Las Vegas this holiday time. And why not, the city's expansion hockey franchise is in the midst of a historic inaugural season, but the Vegas Golden Knights have a holiday wishlist just like everyone else. Some of the holiday gift suggestions are easily obtainable, while others are nearly impossible to ever be fulfilled. However, if all can be secured, then they will make this year even more memorable. Let's have some fun and dream a little bit. Golden Knights Need a Healthy Marc-Andre Fleury The Knights starting netminder Marc-Andre Fleury appears ready to return to the lineup on a full-time basis after sustaining a concussion in a home game against the Detroit Red Wings on October 13. Fleury passed all of the protocol tests before gaining clearance to practice and play with the team. It's unclear how many consecutive games he can play at first, but the hope is for him to be physically ready to take...
