Twenty-eight games to go, five teams separated by three points, and games in hand, the Vegas Golden Knights' road to the Stanley Cup Playoffs is going to be an adventure. Oh, and did I mention they fired their much-beloved head coach and replaced him with the coach from their arch rival, the San Jose Sharks? It's Been a Tumultuous Two Weeks It's been two weeks since the Golden Knights shocked the NHL world by firing, pardon me, relieved of his duties, head coach Gerard Gallant and replaced him the former head coach of the Sharks, Peter DeBoer. The move was widely rebuked by most hockey writers. And here in Las Vegas after the shock of the news subsided, there was absolute outrage amongst the loyal Golden Knights fanbase. Outrage not only for firing the head coach that took them to the Stanley Cup Final in the magical season, but just as much for the hiring of DeBoer.

NASHVILLE — Chandler Stephenson, Nicolas Roy and Reilly Smith scored, Marc-Andre Fleury made 19 saves and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Nashville Predators 3-0 on Saturday night. The Golden Knights have won two straight, including at Carolina on Friday night. Vegas held Nashville to its lowest shots on goal total of the season at 19 and ended the Predators' two-game winning streak. Fleury finished his third shutout of the season and 59th in his career, breaking a tie with Nashville's Pekka Rinne and tying Evgeni Nabokov for 18th all-time. Rinne stopped 36 of 38 shots. Stephenson scored at 5:14 of the second period. In front of the Vegas bench, Mark Stone sent a pass to Stephenson to start a breakaway, and Stephenson beat Rinne high to the stick side. Rinne kept Nashville close even as Vegas outshot the Predators 14-2 in the first period. Nashville went 16:32 between shots on goal. Shots were 15-6 in the Golden Knights' favour in the second period. Pekka Rinne,...

RALEIGH, N.C. — Alex Tuch scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 2:28 remaining in the third period to lift the Vegas Golden Knights to a 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night. The Hurricanes had tied the score with a goal by Sebastian Aho on a power play of their own just 70 seconds earlier. But Aho was called for a hooking penalty with 2:34 remaining, and the Golden Knights won a faceoff and scored the winning goal with just 6 seconds elapsed on the penalty. Jonathan Marchessault had a goal and an assist in the opening 10 minutes as Vegas got off to a fast start after a nine-day layoff. Nate Schmidt and Paul Stastny also scored for the Golden Knights. Reilly Smith assisted on both first-period goals, and Vegas improved to 2-1-1 since Peter DeBoer replaced the fired Gerard Gallant as coach. Aho had a goal and one assist and Teuvo Teravainen and Brock McGinn also scored for Carolina, which had won two in a row. Petr Mrazek made 33 saves. Sebastian Aho,...

Golden Knights Prospects

The Vegas Golden Knights Prospect Report is a monthly article that will offer a peek into who will be wearing the black and gold in the future. I will have a top 10 list of players and discuss how they performed in the previous month, as well as mention the prospects who are trending up and down. The parameters for the list are as follows: they are considered a prospect if they are below the age of 25 and have fewer than 25 games played in the NHL. With the new year comes the World Junior Championship, and this year's winner was Team Canada. They beat Team Russia, which had two of the three Golden Knights prospects in the tournament (Pavel Dorofeyev and Ivan Morozov). The third player in the tourney that has his rights owned by Vegas is goaltender Isaiah Saville. He was the third goalie for Team USA and did not see any game action. NCAA standout Jack Dugan continues to climb the rankings while the two Russians have had impressive months. Here is your...
