After eclipsing the Florida Panthers’ 83-point season in 1993-94, the 109-point Vegas Golden Knights have the best season by an NHL expansion team and seem to be a team possessed. According to the sports guys at Bovada once the Stanley Cup Playoffs started, the Golden Knights hit another stride.
They’ve lost only three out of 15 games , and that success has been primarily on the back of the three-time Cup winner goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. The former Penguin and likely playoff MVP has been outstanding these playoffs; he’s put up a 1.68 goals against average and a .947 save percentage. He’s made big saves when the Knights have needed him, but more importantly, Fleury has been a model of consistency for his team.
With the two remaining Eastern Conference clubs collectively 0-4-0 against the Golden Knights in the regular season, Lord Stanley may be basking in the Nevada sun this summer. Don’t miss Game 1 of what is sure to be a fantastic final.
