Winning Streak Hits 8 For The Vegas Golden Knights

from David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

Robin Lehner allowed a goal on the first shot he faced Friday, as well as the last.

In between, the Golden Knights goaltender was stellar.

Lehner finished with 32 saves in his debut as the Knights matched a franchise record with their eighth straight win, 4-2 over Buffalo on Friday night at T-Mobile Arena.

“You just get traded, you just want to go in and do your best and give the guys a chance to win,” Lehner said. “There wasn’t that many shots in the second, but I thought there was some really good chances and then they came out in the third and took care of me.”

I actually tuned into the game to see Vegas.  They are strong defensively without sacrificing offense. 

But I saw this lonely looking Sabre standing by the Vegas blueline with his Sabres team stuck in their ownend. He didn’t move, once he turned around it was my loathed Jackie Eichel.

I thought maybe there was something else going on, Nope.  Coasted primarily between the bluelines but made the odd dash into Vegas territory. Only to slowly to meander back behind his hustlling team mates .  Of course PPs he would stick his stick into scrum with no physical attempt to knock the puck lose.

I will admit I do not like any part of him.  Good drafting again by the Sabres.

I hope the REAL hockey people can see that Larkin has a full box of tools, great teammate, emotion,personality, huge motor, etc etc ..He is a 100% NHL /Personal/Human talent.

I predict Eichel will never finish his career with Sabres but Larkin will end up on of the Best Wings.

Eichel has thrown in the towel, big $$, wearing the C, .... Buffalo sadly has to cheer for him.

I am OLD but I can’t remember a full game Coast ever going back to the 70’s

One of the keys to Vegas is the health of Mark Stone.  He did not play last night and test results were not back yet as of last night.

DeBoer was wishy washy when talking about how long he will be out.

Paul;
I would love to have Stone as A Red Wing

A lot of injures due to key (high Minute) players.  I assume the long season and too many back to back games are part of the late season injuries.  The travel takes a lot of time out of an already squeezed out a non game, game day.  Practices, community obligations, etc

Addition Seattle and more is going to cause a larger problem.

I really don’t know how the high TOI players can actually perform very often and show their skills.
