Golden Knights' David Perron out for first playoff game

Golden Knights' David Perron out for first playoff game

At this point it's virtually undeniable, the Vegas Golden Knights have had the most impressive expansion season in major sports history. The Golden Knights exceeded expectations in their first season, claiming the Pacific Division crown, while the Kings enter the postseason as one of the two wild-card teams in the Western Conference. That was the difference in the division standings, and combined with a strong home-ice advantage, why the Golden Knights won it. Bet the home team to start strong and hand the Kings a series-opening loss at T-Mobile Arena. Now they're Golden Knights fans through and through.

As it was for most of the Vegas players, the top defenseman on the team had career highs in points. The Knights will be looking to extend their historic season but first, they have to get through the Kings. Getting Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli going would also be a great help.

Finally, the best part of this game may have very well been the scene at center ice pre-game as the Golden Knight fought with a character representing the Kings and of course the Golden Knight was victorious. However, the idea that the Kings would have a more hard time clinching a playoff spot than the Vegas Golden Knights, would likely not have been on many peoples minds seven months ago. An experienced Los Angeles Kings group, led by Hart Trophy contender Anze Kopitar, isn't going to be anxious about facing the division's top team. The hit sent the left wing to the locker room for the remainder of the game, while drawing the ire of Gallant. Here, too, we see a trend that matches Fleury playing beyond his posts more than other goalies. "The referee didn't think it was a penalty, but I'm sure people will look at that hit and make a decision on it". In his 21 games after returning February 24, he scored 13 goals and doled out six assists. The only goal he allowed was on a deflection in front of the net with a little bit of traffic. "I thought we had the puck most of the time".

Victims aboard the bus included 10 players, the driver, two coaches, a volunteer statistician and a broadcaster. They said they have done dozens of interviews and vehicle computer data is being recovered and analyzed.

The Kings blew a chance to tie it in the second period, when defenceman Drew Doughty's rebound found Dustin Brown, who was staring into an empty net two feet away. The 2017-18 season is no different as Quick won the Jennings Trophy for the team that has allowed the fewest goals against on the season while Fleury led the league with a 2.24 GAA. "We've got a good group, we've got an even four lines that we can all play against anyone", Haula said. Both of these teams are in for a really rough series if this pace keeps up.

This series clearly has the potential to go to seven games. During the regular season, he was 29-17 with a 2.24 GAA and a.927 save percentage overall, including 16-10 with a 2.36 GAA and a.922 save percentage here at home. He will also use a VH-style stance, with the glove up by his ear, as a unique blocking position on straighter shots, and although it's often effective, there is blocker-side exposure.

The Golden Knights limped into the playoffs, having lost two of their final three games and giving up 15 goals over that span but Vegas' defense held their own Wednesday against three Kings power plays.
