The Vegas Golden Knights’ latest game was on 01/07, when they came up against the Los Angeles Kings and ended in a heavy 1-5 loss at home. Jonathan Marchessault was the team’s leading player on the floor, scoring 1 point. He spent 16 minutes and 25 seconds on the ice and tested the opposition’s goalkeeper with two shots. One of those made it through to the back of the net. Logan Thompson’s performance also needs addressing, as he saved 16 of the total 19 shots on goal. The Vegas Golden Knights won five and lost five of their last 10 meetings, but one of those defeats came in overtime or shootouts, and the team gained an extra point.
