The Vegas Golden Knights can officially be considered one of the hottest teams in the National Hockey League after tonight’s win against the Vancouver Canucks. Quite frankly, there should be almost no debate on that statement even if they didn’t get the win against them.
The Vegas Golden Knights started the season with a 1-4, and now things are starting to turnaround for the Knights. Well, I suppose in hindsight things are starting to turnaround, but not really. That’s a story for a different time though and a story for a different time.
Anyways, as I was saying the Vegas Golden Knights started the season with a win against the Seattle Kraken. After getting a very good first win against the newest team in the NHL, they immediately followed that with a four game losing streak.
Since that point, the Vegas Golden Knights have won eight of the 10 games they’ve played. Easily being marked as one of the hottest teams in hockey, and doing so without some of their key contributors.
The Vegas Golden Knights are one of the hottest teams in hockey and that’s while facing a plethora of injuries to what feels like every important player on their roster. But after a poor stretch to start the season, this team is turning things around. But, how did they fare against the Canucks?
The Vegas Golden Knights season is starting to look up after a rough start. I think that it is safe to say that their start was rubbing people the wrong way. This team is supposed to be a Stanley Cup contender, and they weren’t showing that for a stretch there.
The Vegas Golden Knights were losing games that they definitely shouldn’t have lost. But, when you are rooting for a team that usually doesn’t go on losing stretches, it makes it hard to understand it. It’s even harder to not overreact to those loses regardless if it was the Knights first five games.
Finally, things are starting to get back to normal. The team that we all expected to see out there on the ice from a performance standpoint-they are back. They are back to winning games and a lot of them.
Now, it’s time to go more in-depth and reflect on the game they had yesterday against the Vancouver Canucks.
