Vegas Golden Knights Win Their Way Against The Colorado Avalanche

from Ed Grainey of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

I’m not sure who would be doubting a team that has won as much as the Golden Knights. But if that perceived slight gives you the motivation to get a significant road split, who’s to argue?

It’s not just that the Knights defeated Colorado 3-2 in overtime Saturday. It’s how they won. Playing their way.

We saw Thursday what happens when they don’t against this specific side. It’s not pretty.
Responding to a 5-1 loss in which they were dominated two days earlier, the Knights remained atop the Honda West Division because they refused to get caught up in another track meet.

They can’t beat Colorado that way. Patience isn’t just a key against the Avalanche. It’s the only way to succeed. You either limit transition rushes or you lose.
