Golden Knights beat Kings for first postseason win in franchise history

Golden Knights beat Kings for first postseason win in franchise history

The Golden Knights opened as -155 favorites (wager $155 to win $100); the total is at 5.5 goals, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. After all, it wasn't all that long ago the Kings won the Stanley Cup as the West's eighth seed, and they did so with several members of this current group.

It therefore stands to reason that the Kings are not going to be bowled over by Vegas. Colin Miller leads in penalty minutes with 53 whole Oscar Dansk yields 1.78 goals per game.

Vegas 4, Kings 2 (Nov. 19): The Kings were on the second leg of a back-to-back in this game at T-Mobile, but goalie Jonathan Quick should have been fresh because then-backup Darcy Kuemper was between the pipes the night before. Overall, the Kings held the edge, outscoring the Golden Knights 11-10. The Pens scored three goals on their first 10 shots of the game, with the best of those three coming off the stick of Evgeni Malkin, who beat Brian Elliott with a backhander from inside the right faceoff circle. Anze Kopitar tied the game with 10.8 seconds left in regulation and Dustin Brown delivered the victor in overtime at Staples Center.

Kings 4, Vegas 1 (Feb. 27): New backup goalie Jack Campbell earned his first National Hockey League win by stopping an incredible 41 shots.

GoaliesrnKings: Jonathan Quick had another fine season with a record of 33-28-3 and goals-against-average of 2.40. After all, they've won two Stanley Cups. This resulted in the club narrowly missing the 2017 playoffs.

It's a Cinderella story for the ages, but the test only gets tougher as they go up against a Los Angeles Kings team looking to get back to their contending ways. They got off to an 11-2-2 start.

The total has gone over in four of Vegas' last five games. This is eight more than he played last season. This good be where Jeff Carter comes in, though. That could be part of the reason why the Kings were on a roller-coaster ride.

The Golden Knights fans may use the arguments of the fact that people have been saying these things about them all season but they've come out ahead each time. But, for what it's worth, Minnesota battled throughout this one and it was a pretty tight, physical game until the end.

"It's unbelievable, it's a miracle", Vegas fan David Sanderson said. Not in this case, not by a longshot.

The Kings finished the regular season 45-29-8, and with with 98 points. Karlsson leads in goals with 43 while Perron tops in assists with 50.

Vegas was not other-worldly, however. Meanwhile the Golden Knights were in the middle of winning 12 of 13 games at that point. Carter is undoubtedly a very talented player, however, he only played in 27 games this season because of injuries. But if he can get hot again, that might be what could get the Kings over the hump in this series.

The marks the first time any National Hockey League team has made the playoffs in its inaugural season, but the Vegas Golden Knights are looking to make some more history. I don't think they have a Jake Muzzin, Alec Martinez or Dion Phaneuf either.

They are an expansion team with a bunch of players that teams were happy to make available. He skated, but in non-contact form. Defenseman Luca Sbisa (hand) has not played since February 27. He has returned to practice, but there is no guarantee he'll be ready for Game 1. He's practicing, but may not be ready for Game 1.
