Some take aways from last night’s NHL Hockey game between the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Florida Panthers

  • The Golden Knights were able to win the game despite being outshot by the Panthers. This shows that they are a very resilient team and that they are able to find ways to win even when they are not playing their best.
  • The Golden Knights’ top line of Chandler Stephenson, Mark Stone, and Max Pacioretty was once again dominant. The three players combined for five points in the game, and they were a major reason why the Golden Knights were able to win.
  • The Panthers’ goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky, had a rough night. He allowed five goals on 27 shots, and he was pulled from the game in the third period. The Panthers will need Bobrovsky to play better if they want to win the series.
  • The Golden Knights were able to get some key contributions from their depth players. Players like William Karlsson, Reilly Smith, and Alex Tuch all had goals in the game. This shows that the Golden Knights have a lot of scoring depth, which will be important in the playoffs.
  • The Panthers were unable to generate much offense against the Golden Knights’ defense. The Golden Knights were able to block a lot of shots and they were very physical in the game. This made it difficult for the Panthers to get their offense going.
  • The Golden Knights were able to win the special teams battle. They scored two power-play goals and they killed off all four of the Panthers’ power plays. This was a big factor in the Golden Knights’ victory.
