Well, the anticipation for the rematch did not last long between the top two teams in the league when the Vegas Golden Knights went head-to-head against the Boston Bruins

The Knights were looking to keep the upper hand over Boston after defeating the Bruins in overtime on December 5th. The Bruins were looking to avenge that loss and prove they were still the dominant team in the league. 

Vegas went into this game a bit empty-handed, missing their key players Jack Eichel, Alex Pietrangelo, and Shae Theodore. Logan Thompson was called up to start in the net.

The special teams for the Knights stepped up in the first few minutes of the first period. Vegas was gifted with a power play after an unsportsmanlike penalty on A.J. Greer. The penalty on the Bruins would cost them dearly when Mark Stone would score to put the Knights on the board first, taking a 1-0 lead.

The first period remained fast-paced between both teams as the Knights remained in the lead 1-0.


The second period would be fast-paced between both teams, but a scary moment for the Knights would put them in an uneasy situation throughout the game.

In the first three minutes of the second period, the Bruins answered by scoring a goal from Patrice Bergeron to make the score even 1-1.

With the game still tied, the game got scary, well, for the most part, for the Knights, after Zach Whitecloud left the game after an awkward collision with Bruins Taylor Hall, what appeared to be Whitecloud’s right leg got hurt. Vegas had now lost its third defensemen.

The game would remain tied after the second period, with Vegas missing so many players the Knights needed to regroup and take the lead. But the Bruins were the ones to answer and take advantage in the third period.

Two minutes into the third period, Jake DeBrusk would score from the edge of the right face-off circle to give the Bruins the lead of 2-1 at the 2:10 mark of the third period. 

The Knights had an opportunity to tie the game on a power play but could not execute. Several minutes later, at the 9:04 mark, the Bruins would extend the lead 3-1 after Charlie Coyle scored by shooting a wrist shot from the left circle.

With the Knights unable to answer, the Bruins would avenge their loss and defeat the Golden Knights 3-1. With the victory, the Bruins are now 11-1-1 against Western Conference teams.

The loss in this game for the Golden Knights is not a blow to their standings in the division or the league but a big blow to their lineup. With Eichel, Pietrangelo, Theodore, and now Whitecloud out, the injury bug is hitting players left and right on the Knights’ roster. It is a next-man-up mentality Vegas needs moving forward, but having their key players makes a big difference. Vegas needs to stay healthy, especially late into the season.


The Golden Knights will go on the road up to Canada as they face the Winnipeg Jets at the Canada Life Centre on Tuesday. They are scheduled to drop the puck at 5:00 pm. The game can be seen on  AT&T SportsNet (channel 313 on Cox Cable) or heard on 98.9 FM, FOX Sports Las Vegas 1340 AM.
