A Chat With George McPhee

The Golden Knights' general manager addresses the state of the team a quarter through the season.

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

George McPhee's expansion Vegas Golden Knights flirt with first place in the Pacific Division on a nightly basis a quarter into the NHL season. It's not supposed to be this way. Ask just about anyone who wrote a season preview on the NHL.

Vegas is an expansion team. The roster should be filled with holes and it should be old with once big-name players fading more with the dawning of every game.

Except that's not McPhee's model. Yes, the rules were more in his favor and having just one team join the NHL last summer also worked to his benefit. But the approach was new and unique. The execution was creative and disciplined. It was collaborative and painstaking. It was brilliant.

The result is a team which plays together and plays for one another. They make a bit on high end talent but they are something to behold. Leadership comes from every corner of the dressing room. Scoring is spread out and head coach Gerard Gallant uses all his players. Ice-time distribution is among the most even in the NHL. If a player is dressed - he gets used. Vegas is the only team in the league where the separation from the top used forward to the seventh on that list is less than two minutes. Reilly Smith leads the forwards with an average ice-time of 18:14 per game. Erik Haula is seventh and he clocks in at 16:18 per game.

by Dan Marrazza @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

It looked like Vegas was going to lose.

Down 2-0, being stifled at every turn by red-hot Ducks goalie John Gibson.

It looked like the Golden Knights would lose...and then they scored three third-period goals and won 4-2.

With this win, Vegas improves to 13-6-1 and leapfrogs the LA Kings for first place in the Pacific Division.

Here are three immediate takeaways from tonight's game.

Gerard Gallant Confirms Maxime Lagace Starting In Goal Vs. Ducks

Gallant also says Oscar Lindberg will play tonight, while Tomas Nosek will be scratched

by Dan Marrazza @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

Throughout the early part of this season, there's one thing we've learned about Gerard Gallant:

He HATES to tinker with a winning lineup.

In short, if the Golden Knights win, Gallant pretty much returns with the same lineup the next game. Ride the hot hand until it isn't hot anymore.

This played a factor in Gallant's decision to stick with Maxime Lagace in goal on Sunday against the Kings, electing to use Vegas' No. 4 goalie after Lagace defeated the Canucks despite the return of Malcolm Subban from IR.

Speaking to media this morning at Honda Center, Gallant confirmed that Lagace would again start in goal tonight.

Tonight's matchup pits the five-time defending Pacific Division champion Anaheim Ducks against the Vegas Golden Knights.

When the schedule was constructed, this one appeared to be a mismatch.

With most of its veteran team returning, the Ducks appeared poised to make another run toward a Stanley Cup. While the Golden Knights…how this team did was anyone's guess.

Miraculously, as we hit the quarter mark of the season following tonight's game, the Golden Knights are actually ahead of the Ducks in the standings right now by two points - 25 for VGK, 23 for ANA.

For the Ducks, however, there's a bit more than meets the eye that explains their record.

Catching Up With William Karlsson

It's been hard to catch him on the ice, so might as well catch him here

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

He's 24 and having the season of his career. He lives in Vegas, loves his teammates and has great hair.

He's William Karlsson and life couldn't be much better right now.

Karlsson has nine goals and seven assists for 16 points and has now tied his career high in goals after just 19 games. He's nine points away from equaling his career best with more than three quarters of the season still ahead of him.

Karlsson has five goals and six points in his last four games. Everything he shoots is going in.

The offense is great but it doesn't come at the expense of the rest of his game. First and foremost Karlsson is a responsible player. Spending the last few seasons in Columbus under the watchful eye of John Tortorella, Karlsson developed a 200-foot game which is now second nature. He's a strong skater and he thinks the game well. All that was missing from his game was opportunity. Now skating on a line with Reilly Smith and Jonathan Marchessault, Karlsson is averaging 17:56 of ice-time per game. His previous career average was under 14 minutes per game.
