Do The Capitals Or Golden Knights Have Any Chance Of Doing It Again? Do The Capitals Or Golden Knights Have Any Chance Of Doing It Again?

The combatants in last season’s Stanley Cup Final met a week into this young season and the rematch looked like a mismatch. The Capitals rode their hot offensive start to a 5-2 victory over the Golden Knights, who now have a 3-4-0 record that has commentators revving up their “I told you they were a fluke” takes. On…

What Can We Learn From Four Stadium Deals That Don't Suck? What Can We Learn From Four Stadium Deals That Don't Suck?

Whenever professional economists are asked about stadium and arena deals, they invariably explain, for the hundredth time, that these “almost never” work out to the benefit of the public. (Look, here are a bunch saying so just a few weeks ago!) Between the price tags in the hundreds of millions of dollars and the…

What's Up With The Golden Knights? What's Up With The Golden Knights?

The sophomore slump has struck early. The Vegas Golden Knights, a year removed from a miracle inaugural season with a trip to the finals, are 1-3-0, and they aren’t scoring. That’s a problem against any team, but especially when trying to keep up with an offense like the defending champs’.

The Golden Knights And Canadiens Made A Fascinating Trade The Golden Knights And Canadiens Made A Fascinating Trade

The second-year Vegas Golden Knights are operating as if they’re in win-now mode, and why not? They absolutely are. Meanwhile the Montreal Canadiens are trading away their captain in the middle of the night. So that’s how things are going!

The Golden Knights Are Paying Marc-Andre Fleury How Much? The Golden Knights Are Paying Marc-Andre Fleury How Much?

The Vegas Golden Knights announced that they have signed goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to a very bad contract extension.

The Game Clock Broke In Vegas And Caused Total Chaos The Game Clock Broke In Vegas And Caused Total Chaos

If ever you need confirmation of the theory of general relativity, just watch your team in a Stanley Cup clincher. After Lars Eller scored the go-ahead (and soon to be Cup-winning) goal with 7:37 left, time started doing funny things, depending on who you were rooting for. While those final minutes and seconds ticked…

Ovechkin And Fleury Say Hello, With Sticks

Alexander Ovechkin’s and Marc-Andre Fleury’s playoff familiarity goes all the way back to 2009. Fleury’s side has won every single one of their series (even if he happened to be on the bench for some of that). That could change tonight, obviously. Even before puck drop, they were sending each other messages.

The Golden Knights Have Lost Their Mojo The Golden Knights Have Lost Their Mojo

There is no secret to what is happening to the Golden Knights, now down 3-1 in the Stanley Cup final after playing nigh-unbeatable throughout the playoffs. The zamboni has transformed back into a pumpkin, and not just a regular pumpkin, but a gross smelly rotted one.

The Capitals Finally Made Vegas Look Like An Expansion Team The Capitals Finally Made Vegas Look Like An Expansion Team

In the follow-up performance to a Game 3 loss marked by defensive miscommunications and mishaps, the Vegas Golden Knights looked even worse for most of Game 4, falling to the Capitals 6-2 to go down 3-1 in the Stanley Cup Finals. On the whole, Vegas actually did a better job of creating dangerous chances and holding…

Maybe It Actually Is Okay For Caps Fans To Believe? Maybe It Actually Is Okay For Caps Fans To Believe?

The Caps were still up by a goal after Braden Holtby’s incredible blunder in the third period of Saturday’s Game 3, but when it happened—the very instant Tomáš Nosek guided Holtby’s blind, panicked, incomprehensibly ill-advised give-away into the empty net—a vision of the next great gut-wrenching Capitals collapse…

Braden Holtby Made The Save Of His Life Braden Holtby Made The Save Of His Life

If you have not yet seen Braden Holtby’s game-saving save with two minutes left in Washington’s 3-2 Game 2 win, well, first see Alex Ovechkin’s reaction on the bench:

The Capitals Refused To Blink In Game 2 The Capitals Refused To Blink In Game 2

The Golden Knights have trained people to believe that they’re always going to bounce back. All though this postseason, Vegas has shrugged off potentially game-changing goals from their opponents, like Tom Wilson’s tiebreaker in the third period of Game 1, and quickly reasserted control. But in a 3-2 loss to the…

Embrace The Spectacle Of Stupid Fun Hockey Embrace The Spectacle Of Stupid Fun Hockey

They have been telling us for decades—a necessarily nebulous “they,” but one that includes the NHL itself, needing to sell the present brand of hockey shaped by rule changes and coaching revolutions and swollen goalie gear, and certain fans, trying to convince themselves that we’re watching the peak of the sport—that…

Holy Crap, The Golden Knights Holy Crap, The Golden Knights

“We’ll be pretty good in three years and we’ll make a run in five or six,” predicted Golden Knights owner Bill Foley back in August. “This team isn’t going to have more than a dozen regulation wins,” predicted some dummy. This was, to put it as plainly as I can—and it’s a sentiment that wouldn’t have found and won’t…

All Hail Sir Jonathan Marchessault All Hail Sir Jonathan Marchessault

According to the numbers, home ice in the NHL isn’t that big a deal, and I’m never been one to argue with hard data. However, playing in the desert does seem to mean something to the Vegas Golden Knights, who beat the Jets 4-2 Wednesday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference Finals. The Knights, who were …

Dustin Byfuglien Pulls Down Two Knights At Once

Winnipeg strongman Dustin Byfuglien won’t stop asserting his dominance against lesser men, as the Vegas Golden Knights learned once more in Game 3 of their series tonight. In a big testy scrap near the end of the second period, Byfuglien grabbed hold of both Tomas Nosek and Colin Miller—who are listed at 210 and 196…
