FEB. 21: It was a high-scoring match between the Golden Knights and the Calgary Flames, with the Knights winning 7-3. It was U.S. versus Canada on a smaller scale as the U.S. Women's Hockey Team beat Canada in the gold medal game at the Olympics. 

FEB. 19: The Golden Knights lost a home game against the Anaheim Ducks 2-0.

FEB. 17: With a win Saturday afternoon, the Vegas Golden Knights recaptured the No. 1 spot in the NHL.

Reilly Smith was one of the stars of the day. He racked up two goals and an assist, while teammate Jonathan Marchessault finished with three assists of his own in the Golden Knights' 6-3 win against the Montreal Canadiens.

FEB. 15: The Golden Knights won 4-1 over the Edmonton Oilers. It improved the Knights' home record to 21-4-2.

The team is just one win away from having a .500 record for its first season. 

FEB. 13: The Golden Knights continued their winning streak against the Chicago Blackhawks, winning 5-2. 

FEB. 11: The Golden Knights suffered a rare home loss against the Philadelphia Flyers, the final score being 4-1. Brayden McNabb scored the Knights' lone goal. 

A positive note from the game was Henderson's Hailey Dawson dropped the puck to start the game.

FEB 8: The Golden Knights won 5-3 against the Sharks in San Jose. The goals were all by separate players, including Jonathan Marchessault, Erik Haula, William Karlsson, Brayden McNabb and James Neal. 

FEB 6: It was a homecoming of sorts for Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. He returned back to Pittsburgh, the team that drafted him #1 overall in 2003 and landed him several NHL championships over the years, as the visiting goalie.

The Golden Knights are atop their conference and playing some of the best hockey in the league but the defending Stanley Cup champs were able to narrowly stop the Knights from leaving town with a 'W.'

The Golden Knights jumped out to an early  2-0 second-period lead allowed 5-straight goals to set the bar too high for a comeback.

FEB 4: The Vegas Golden Knights (35-13-4) needed a comeback to keep their spot as the NHL's best team.

The Washington Capitals has the Golden Knights trailing for the majority of the game but in true Golden Knights fashion the momentum turned in the third period. The comeback was capped by Alex Tuch's game-winning goal that came with 5:12 left in the game.

FEB 2: The Vegas Golden Knights improve to 34-12-4 with an overtime victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

David Perron scored in overtime to give the Golden Knights an NHL record for most wins by a team in its inaugural season. 

Bryce Harper, Mayor Goodman and others shared their elation on Twitter.

 

 

Harper even has his gloves for the 2018-2019 MLB season painted in Golden Knights colors.

 

JAN. 31: With their comeback victory against the Calgary Flames the Vegas Golden Knights officially became "the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be."

For the non-pro wrestling fans that's a Bret Hart quote, google it and you'll get it later.

All joking aside, the Golden Knights continued their storybook season by scoring 3 goals in less than a minute to end the game. With 1 minute 40 seconds left in the 3rd period,  Erik Haula, Jonathan Marchessault and David Perron scored to put the Golden Knights ahead 4-2.

The win also ties the team for most wins by an expansion team in NHL history, a record they're going to leave in the dust by season's end.
