Mitch Moss On Golden Knights' Playoff Chances

  • NHL Playoffs 2018: LA Kings chances much worse without Drew Doughty

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was in attendance for the first playoff game in Las Vegas on April 11.

The first period of Game 2 would best be summed up by saying that both teams played well despite stoppages due to clock problems. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 21.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Gallant admitted the Golden Knights have exceeded expectations in Year 1.

"I thought we really caught them off guard a little bit with how physical we were and couple guys were probably a little shaken up on their end", says right wing Alex Tuch.

Fleury got his first playoff shutout since last May, when his Penguins beat the Ottawa Senators 1-0 in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

"How could they suspend Doughty for one game like this?". Of course, it automatically became the longest in the short history of the Golden Knights, who became the fifth National Hockey League expansion franchise to win their first two playoff games.

The stunning expansion team- and Pacific Division champs - won their first playoff game on Wednesday night, and they followed it up with a double-overtime victory over the Los Angeles Kings to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. The under is 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings.


"We just kept playing the same way and that's what we've been talking about it", Haula said. "I was coming in with a lot of speed, I got lucky and we got the win". Tomas Nosek came from behind the goal to fire a pass to Theodore, and he blasted a wrist shot through traffic for the Golden Knights' first playoff goal. However, he fought back eventually, nailing Golden Knights forward William Carrier in the head.

It has been a season to remember for the Vegas Golden Knights.

"Everything has been flawless, and we obviously hope the playoffs go as well as the regular season".

The Kings and Knights will drop the puck on Game 2 on Friday night from T-Mobile Arena.

The Golden Knights' fairytale first season continues to write itself. "That was probably the weekend where we said, 'You know what, we'll see what happens here, but we like our chances'". With Kyle Clifford in the penalty box for goalie interference, Vegas took a 1-0 lead when Jonathan Marchessault's shot from the high slot caromed off the boards straight to Tuch, who easily slapped in the rebound past Quick's glove side.
