Golden Knight fans have given Logan Thompson the business throughout December. However, the goaltender silenced his critics with a stellar performance on Thursday. He stopped 32 shots and got the win against the Kings.

Once Adin Hill returns to the fold, Vegas should have a normal goaltending tandem again. The Golden Knights are hoping the injury bug doesn't bite them like it did last season. Otherwise, repeating will be a tall task.
