The Vegas Golden Knights Beat The Colorado Avalanche In the Battle Of The Big Boys

from Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

It might not be official, but things have reached city limits: Consider the Golden Knights the best varsity team in the Honda West Division.

The Knights beat Colorado 5-2 on Wednesday night before 3,950 at T-Mobile Arena, creating what should be an insurmountable cushion between them and the Avalanche for first place.

And, yeah, that matters a lot.

And, yeah, those in the lead hate to even consider having such an edge.

“A huge, huge result for the standings,” Knights coach Pete DeBoer said. “It gives us a real chance. We still have a lot of business to take care of over the last two weeks, but it sets up that our destiny is in our own hands. Which is at least what you want heading into the last few weeks of a season.”


Below, watch the game highlights.

man I really wanted to see this game, and I completely forgot about it.  I can’t wait for this matchup in the playoffs. Nobody is going to give Tampa a run, this is the best matchup out of the West for sure.
