Golden Knights Handle Avalanche, 5-1

by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

The Vegas Golden Knights notched their second win of the preseason with a 5-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday night at the Pepsi Center.

HOW IT WENT DOWN
Vegas came out of the gates strong and grabbed a 1-0 at 6:05 of the first. Brandon Pirri whipped a wrist shot from the right side that beat Semyon Varlamov five-hole to put the visitors up by a goal. The Golden Knights held that lead after the first period and added to it early in the second. Erik Brannstrom took a pass on the rush and snapped a wrist shot by the glove of Varlamov to put Vegas up by a pair. Alex Tuch added a power-play goal late in the period as he finished off a perfect passing play from Oscar Lindberg and Paul Stastny. Ryan Graves got the Avalanche on the scoreboard early in the third period, but Reid Duke's goal at 10:52 of the third put Vegas back up by three. Erik Haula added a late goal for Vegas as he one-timed a pass from Stastny into the back of the net to cap the night off at 5-1.

4 Questions During VGK Training Camp

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

Hang around Vegas Golden Knights assistant GM Kelly McCrimmon and you'll hear a lot of wisdom. Not just on hockey, but on life and learning and relationships. McCrimmon has an MBA and a bus driver's licence. He's been a player, a coach, a GM and an owner during his career. When he talks, it's smart to listen. One of the things he likes to say about a hockey club was uttered the other day.

"Every team runs its own race," said McCrimmon, during a discussion about what lies ahead for this season's version of the Golden Knights.

Scoring streaks and slumps, injuries, trades, suspensions as well as any number of unknown factors can impact a team and where it eventually ends up. There are spurts and bursts. There are dips and lulls.
