Vegas has best record in Western Conference, but mum's the word when it comes to postseason

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist

LAS VEGAS -- Gerard Gallant is no Jim Mora. The Vegas Golden Knights coach is not like the Indianapolis Colts coach was in 2001, ranting in a NFL press conference, "Playoffs? Don't talk about … Playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs?"

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist

LAS VEGAS -- The picture speaks 1,000 words -- or perhaps 60 points, the number the Vegas Golden Knights have earned halfway through their inaugural season.

It is on the Instagram account of forward Brendan Leipsic. Hanging out on a boat off the cost of Mexico during their five-day break this week were eight members of the Golden Knights (from left to right): Reilly Smith, James Neal, Alex Tuch, Erik Haula, Leipsic, Nate Schmidt, Colin Miller and Shea Theodore.
