Early Morning Line- Mark Whicker On The Vegas Golden Knights

12/29/2017 at 4:55am EST

The Knights can make you question your execution and effort, basically because their effort stops your execution.

With four roughly equal lines, they simply move their feet into any puck-carrier’s space, and all five of them play the game on a string, never leaving big gaps between forwards and defensemen. Once you get past one guy, there’s a companion who’s trying to poke away the puck, concentrating on finesse and speed rather than big, showy hits. As they say in Vegas, there’s always another Knight.

Vegas has not lost a game in regulation since Dec. 1. It is 5-0 against the Kings and Ducks. In this particular spree, the Knights have beaten Nashville, Dallas, the Kings and the Ducks on the road and Tampa Bay, Washington and Pittsburgh in T-Mobile Arena. In the six-game winning streak they have surrendered only nine goals.
