Las Vegas Golden Knights vs. San Jose Sharks, 10/4/19 Prediction & Odds

The Sharks trailed 3-0 in that game when Cody Eakin was assessed a five-minute major on Joe Pavelski, who signed with Dallas in the off-season. Everyone in the San Jose locker room should be ashamed of the games they played against the Golden Knights to open the season.

"It's a good rivalry", Golden Knights coach Gerald Gallant said. As Erik Karlsson reminded everyone following the loss, "There's no need to panic, we're two games in".

NOTES: Vegas defenseman Nate Schmidt left midway through the first period and did not return with what appeared to be a knee injury. Jonathan Marchessault tallied his first goal of the 2019-2020 season, giving his team a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes of play. Smith added an insurance goal in the third period with an assist going to Karlsson.

"Everyone wants to win every game, especially at the start", Vegas forward Tomas Nosek said. "I've never had a three-point game in the National Hockey League, so I'm happy that we win and I'm happy for the three points". After a short-handed goal in the season opener, Vegas did the same on Friday.

Smith scored his second goal when he and Karlsson found themselves on a 2-on-0 breakaway and played tic-tac-toe right up to Jones' doorstep, making it 4-1 early in the third period. At the same time, someone needs to tell DeBoer that he can start Aaron Dell, instead of suffering through Jones' clunkers against Vegas. "Even though he was stillborn, we know we will hold him again one day under different circumstances and the joy he gave us will be with us forever", Karlsson said in a statement shortly after Axel's death was revealed.

Everything is ready, just call Canelo. "It was incredible, and he showed so much heart". “He hit me in the back of the head. Golovkin (159.2) returned to the win column in a big way last time out as he knocked out Steve Rolls in the fourth round.


The Golden Knights have three short-handed goals in two games.

But it's not just their record that's concerning, it's how they've reached that point.

The hardest part about drawing conclusions about either team is the two games have come against each other.

"I think right now, for me, the power play is gonna be the least of my worries", DeBoer said.

When the San Jose Sharks announced that Erik Karlsson would be missing their season opener against the Vegas Golden Knights "to attend to a personal matter", much of the hockey world was left wondering what was going on with the two-time Norris Trophy victor.
