My thoughts on the 1st period

I thought both VGK and ARI did good. Although the VGK won that period score wise, both teams had solid plays both offensively and defensively. The period was fairly even until Vegas cashed in on the only goal of the period.

My thoughts on the 2nd period

I don’t know what went was said in the dressing room, but Vegas Golden Knights’ 2nd period was phenomenal! Vegas came out flying like the top contender team they are built to be. It seemed like the Coyotes would never score during the 2nd period until Schmaltz scored that goal to make it 1-0. Even with the goal, any momentum they built was smothered by Vegas’ attack lead by captain Mark Stone. Vegas would go into the locker room up 3-1.

My thoughts on the 3rd period

All I can say is Viva Las Vegas! In all seriousness though, it was a nail-biting open to the last period and you have to credit the Coyotes for not collapsing as they kept pushing and driving offensive chances. While the drives were largely to no avail, Vegas would up the score by adding 2 more goals of their own before Phil Kessel would get one almost midway through the period.

In conclusion

Losing is no issue once it comes to the Vegas Golden Knights. Whether it is a come from behind win or full throttle offense, Vegas is showing why they are a top contender not only in the division but the league. The Golden Knights are grabbing all the available points right out of the gate which can become a huge factor down the road.

Can they continue their streak in Glendale on Friday?
