Vegas is the third team in NHL history to reach the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season.
The other two are the Toronto Arenas in 1918 and St. Louis Blues in 1968. The 1918 campaign is a given as it was also the first of the NHL, but the Arenas' opponents in that year's finals, the Montreal Canadiens, predated the NHL so it wasn't their inaugural season. As for St. Louis, that was the campaign when the NHL expanded from six teams to 12 and the West Division that the Blues came from was compromised entirely out of expansion teams. So while Vegas isn't the first team to pull off this particular feat, they are the first to do so under these set of circumstances. May 20 - 10:15 PM

The Western Conference Final will begin on Saturday night.

The location of Game 1 still hasn't been determined because the series between Winnipeg and Nashville still isn't over. The winner of that series will host the Golden Knights on Saturday and Monday. The series will then shift to Vegas for Games 3 and 4 on Wednesday and Friday night. Game 5 and 7 would be played in Winnipeg/Nashville on May 20 and May 24, while Game 6 would be played in Vegas on May 22.

Coach Gerard Gallant was thrilled with the play of the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 6 Sunday.

"I was definitely impressed with our second half of the game, for sure," Gallant said. "I thought the last 10 minutes of the second and the third period was outstanding. It was probably our best hockey of the whole playoffs, to be honest with you. We weren’t scoring a whole lot of goals at that time, but we were just playing real good, solid hockey and not giving much at all."

If the Golden Knights can win one more game against the Sharks, they will become the third team in NHL history to win two playoff series in their inaugural season.

Only the Toronto Arenas (1918) and the St. Louis Blues (1968) have accomplished that feat. We have run out of superlatives to describe what Vegas has done over the past seven months.

Vegas head coach Gerard Gallant was not happy with the effort shown in Game 2 by his Vegas Golden Knights.

The series is tied at one game apiece after the Golden knights dropped a 4-3 double overtime decision to the Sharks with Game 3 in San Jose Monday. "They better be ready because we didn’t show up for 45 minutes tonight," Gerard Gallant said. "We played a great game the other night and competed and battled. And tonight, whether we thought it was going to be easy or what we thought, I don’t know. But we didn’t show up to play our game tonight and it cost us big time. They were the better team all night." The Sharks outshot Vegas 47-29 with goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury holding the Golden Knights in the game throughout the night.

Gerard Gallant has been nominated for the Jack Adams Award.

Gallant is the run-away favorite to win the award after he helped lead his team to the Pacific Division crown in their first year in the NHL. The Golden Knights had a 51-24-7 record during the 2017-18 regular season. Colorado's Jared Bednar and Boston's Bruce Cassidy are the other two finalists for the award.
Apr 25 - 7:26 PM

Vegas is the first team in NHL history to reach 100 points in their inaugural season.

The Golden Knights hold a seven-point lead over San Jose in the Pacific Division despite a 2-1 overtime loss to the Sharks on Thursday night. "It's a huge number. Definitely satisfied and happy with that," coach Gerard Gallant said. "What do we got, eight games left in the season? So let's keep adding on to the points, but it's definitely a huge feat for our group so far."
Mar 23 - 12:04 PM

After being virtually unbeatable at home for most of the season, the Golden Knights have dropped their last four games at T-Mobile Arena.

As Vegas beat writer Steve Carp so cleverly put it, "Guess the house doesn't always win". Vegas will still make the playoffs, which is a monumental achievement for an expansion club. However, it is questionable how deep a run they will be able to sustain. In any event, it has been a joy to watch the Golden Knights play this season.
Mar 17 - 2:30 PM

The Vegas Golden Knights are second in the NHL in takeaways.

That's amazing for an expansion team but everything they have done this season is amazing. They have 642 takeaways this season, second to only Carolina, and are over 100 ahead of the third place Rangers.
Feb 19 - 8:55 AM

Vegas won for the 33rd time on Tuesday night with a late comeback victory over Calgary.

The win tied the Golden Knights with the Florida Panthers (1993-94) and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (1993-94) for most wins by an expansion team in their inaugural season. Vegas leads the Western Conference with 70 points and they sit second overall in the league with a 33-12-4 record.
Jan 31 - 12:30 PM

The Vegas Golden Knights have not allowed a power play goal in their last 23 attempts.

The Golden Knights have jumped up to 13th overall in penalty killing efficiency with their recent outstanding play. "When your PK is good, it starts with goaltending," Knights coach Gerard Gallant said Sunday after the team’s 40-minute practice at City National Arena. "We talk about special teams a lot. They can win you a lot of hockey games." It's just another reason to love the expansion team this season.
Jan 15 - 8:38 AM

As implausable as it may have seemed when the season started, Gerard Gallant will coach the Pacific Division in the All-Star game.

The honor goes to the coach on the team with the best record in the division and Vegas has a five-point lead and a game in hand over second-place Los Angeles. It is truly amazing what Vegas has done in 40 games thus far posting a 28-10-2 record as an expansion team. It will be interesting to see if they can keep it up in the second half. Although we have been skeptical for a long time, we at Rotoworld are beginning to believe.
Jan 6 - 2:13 PM

Most hockey experts predicted that the Vegas Golden Knights would struggle this season and deal their pending free agents for future assets at the trade deadline.

With the team doing so well (leading the Western Conference in winning percentage) GM George McPhee is at least willing to consider straying from his original plan. "Don't know that it's really changed anything", said McPhee. "We have a master plan, but as we all know, you go day to day in this business as well. We'll just keep our fingers on the pulse to continue to try and do what’s best for this club every day and in the long term." It will be interesting to see if Vegas can keep up their success and what McPhee does as a result.

Although Vegas' latest road trip didn't go as hoped, coach Gerard Gallant was happy with how the team played.

Vegas went just 1-4-1 on the road. "I’m happy with the way we’ve played on the road," Gallant said. "We just took some bad penalties at bad times. We had probably a five- or seven-minute lapse in a couple games on the road, but besides that, we played really good hockey. If we go on the road and play as well as we played last trip, I think we’ll win more points." Vegas earned a 5-2 win over Winnipeg on home Friday night, but now the Golden Knights are set for a two-game road trip that will take them to Edmonton and Vancouver.

The Vegas Golden Knights' penalty kill will be tested this afternoon in Ottawa

Vegas is near the bottom of the league in PK stats and the Senators are in the top 10 in power-play efficiency. We are certain Golden Knights' coach Gerard Gallant will be advising his team to stay out of the penalty box if they want to have a chance to break their current three-game losing streak. You might want to consider starting any Sens who get power-play ice time today given this matchup.
