Mid Day Fix: Fleury Starting, Neal And Subban Return

The Golden Knights' lineup is poised for two major returns on Friday.

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights /

Big Game James is back.

James Neal has had a major impact on the Vegas Golden Knights and he returns to the lineup tonight against the Minnesota Wild after missing eight games due to injury.

Neal, who has scored 24 goals and 40 points, will skate on a line with Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson.

Tomas Tatar will remain with Neal's regular linemates David Perron and Erik Haula.

"Marchy and Karly play with a lot of speed and they see the ice well," said Neal. "I just need to find my spots and hopefully we'll work well together."

Goaltender Malcolm Subban will also return to the lineup and will backup Marc-Andre Fleury tonight

George McPhee Off To Boca Raton For NHL GM Meetings

The subject of goaltender interference calls will be a part of the agenda.

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights /

The GMs will meet in Boca Raton next week and video review - both for goaltender interference and offside - is on the agenda. Agenda matters don't often get immediate traction but there seems to be an appetite for a fast-track solution to these ongoing issues.

Video review in the NHL is flawed - just about everyone in or around the league will agree. It needs to be fixed and preferably in short order. When no one is happy - not the GMs or the referees and certainly not the players and coaches - action is a must.

The most oft heard complaint about review centers around a lack of consistency from one play to the next. Players and coaches can be heard, after games featuring a video review with a result they don't like, grumbling about not knowing what the rule is and how it is applied.

Fair enough. They're living and dying by these decisions which affect the outcome of games.

It isn't often that the Golden Knights have laid an egg at home this season. That happened when they lost 8-3 to the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night at T-Mobile Arena.

Although the lost will be largely forgotten if Vegas can rebound to defeat the Minnesota Wild on home ice this evening.

The Wild (39-24-7) are losers of two straight games, but have defeated the Golden Knights (45-20-5) in both of the teams' meetings so far this season, both of which were in Minnesota. While Minnesota still remains in third place of the Central Division, it now is only three points clear of a playoff spot.

The Golden Knights, meanwhile, still have a 10-point lead atop the Pacific Division.

Tonight's game starts at 7:30.

Here are three keys to the game.

James Neal, Malcolm Subban Nearing Returns From Injury

Gerard Gallant said that he expects both to return to Vegas' lineup soon.

by Dan Marrazza @GoldenKnights /

The Golden Knights needed some good news.

After an 8-3 drubbing at the hands of the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday and with the Minnesota Wild coming into town next, Vegas sits at a juncture of the season where it has to get itself under control.

Where the Golden Knights still hold a massive 10-point lead in the Pacific Division with only 12 games left in the regular season, Vegas wants to avoid the sort of prolonged slump that it has dodged through the first five months of the season.

Mid Day Fix: Knights Shaking Off Loss

Vegas seems poised to rebound after an 8-3 loss to New Jersey on Wednesday.

by Gary Lawless @GoldenKnights /

Turns out a baloney sandwich goes a long way after an 8-3 loss.

"I was angry after the game. I got home around midnight and had a baloney sandwich and that was that. Move on. Same for our players," said Vegas Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant.

For the record - Gallant was an affirmative on mustard.

"Yes," he said, before adding, "Just regular yellow mustard. I'm not a fancy mustard guy."

The losing end of an 8-3 score such as Wednesday's loss to the New Jersey Devils is never fun.
Keeping the score and result of one game in perspective, however, is critical with the framework of an 82-game regular season.

Golden Knights' Initiatives Have Youth Hockey Growing In Nevada

The team is striving to grow the game from the grassroots level.

by Allison Gallagher @GoldenKnights /

Hockey in the desert.

It's a common misconception that hockey can't thrive in warmer climates, but if you look at the NHL standings, you'll see this just isn't the case.  

Las Vegas has always subtly been a hockey hub for youth players. If you've played youth hockey on the West Coast at any level, you're familiar with weekend tournaments at City National Arena and other arenas in Las Vegas.

The Golden Knights knew the Valley was hungry for hockey, but they just needed a way to make it more accessible. Ice hockey is harder than some sports to get into, but there's many developmental layers to it. Street hockey is one of the best ways to make the sport available to all ages. Put a ball and stick in the hands of a kid and they can learn the fundamentals of the sport in a safe environment.  

In February, the Golden Knights announced a partnership with the Clark County School District and NV Energy to bring ball/street hockey to all local middle schools. The support for the team in the community has been incredible and allowing kids to experience hockey for themselves is a priority for the Golden Knights. As part of an NHL Industry Growth Fund (IGF) initiative, the Golden Knights are providing hockey equipment and lesson plans to 63 middle schools across Clark County.

Devils 8, Golden Knights 3: 3 Takeaways

It was not a good night for Vegas.

by Dan Marrazza @GoldenKnights /

There's that curse again.

After a sterling 4-1-0 road trip, the Golden Knights returned home and laid an egg in their first game in a lengthy home stretch. The Devils stormed out and scored four goals by the 2:31 mark of the second period, chasing Marc-Andre Fleury en route to a 8-3 victory.


This is similar to how Vegas dropped a hard decision to Philadelphia a month ago after returning from a 4-2-0 trip, and falls in line with a pattern that many NHL teams have fallen into since long before the Golden Knights were a part of the league.

The Golden Knights play their next three games at home and seven of the next nine.

But first, here are three takeaways from tonight's game.
