No. 1 Fleury's Back-T-Back Shutouts vs. No. 2 Stone's Hat Trick
With the Golden Knights starting to pick up steam after a slow start to the season, the team hunkered down at home during Thanksgiving weekend to host the Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks in back-to-back games. Marc-Andre Fleury dazzled against Calgary as he stopped 28 shots to lead Vegas to a 2-0 win. The next night, Fleury made 33 saves for his second clean sheet in a row as the Golden Knights topped the Sharks, 6-0. This moment defeated Jonathan Marchessault's hat trick with 67 percent of the vote.
After splitting the first two games of their first-round matchup against the San Jose Sharks, the Golden Knights returned home to an electric atmosphere at T-Mobile Arena for Game 3. Mark Stone fed off the energy as he scored 16 seconds into the game. He picked up two assists in the second period before notching his second goal of the contest 36 seconds into the third period. Stone completed his first career hat trick with a breakaway goal to bring the house down and drive the Golden Knights to a 6-3 win. This moment defeated the return of Nate Schmidt with 54 percent of the vote.

No. 1 Marchessault's Penalty Shot OT Winner vs. No. 2 Acquiring Stone & Ensuing Win Streak
On Oct. 28, the Golden Knights and Ottawa Senators took a 3-3 tie into overtime. Marchessault caught a pass in neutral ice and darted into the Ottawa zone before being hooked. He was awarded the first penalty shot of his career on the play. Marchessault cruised in on the right wing, angled himself toward the middle of the ice and snapped a shot under the glove of Craig Anderson to give the Golden Knights a dramatic victory on home ice. This moment defeated Malcolm Subban's first shutout with 60 percent of the vote.
As the trade deadline on Feb. 25 approached, the Vegas Golden Knights had just one win in their last seven outings and needed a boost heading into the playoff push. That boost came in the form of coveted forward Mark Stone. Vegas acquired the two-way player from the Ottawa Senators minutes before the trade deadline and enjoyed a six-game win streak after the acquisition. The Golden Knights went 11-6-2 to finish the year and Stone compiled 11 points (5G, 6A) to close out the regular season. This moment defeated Fleury's highlight-reel save against Philadelphia with 65 percent of the vote.
