The Arizona Coyotes are 0-1-1 so far into the season with one point. Their newest rivals, the Vegas Golden Knights, are 2-0-0 with four points. This could be a new NHL rivalry. The two teams are neighbors. Marc-Andre Fleury, the Vegas goaltender, texted Rick Tocchet, the new Arizona head coach, “Let’s start a rivalry.” They are both climbing the ladder, and Tocchet says the point is “Who wants to get to the ladder quicker?”
Alex Goligoski leads the team in points and assists. Antti Raanta performed really well in the match against the Golden Knights in their previous meeting on last Saturday (OT, Golden Knights win 2-1). Out of a total of 42 shots, he allowed the first one in the late third period.
The team is young. But that doesn’t mean they lack in potential. The players on the Arizona team are better than ever. They might not yet be as strong as a veteran team, but they stand their ground and give a tough fight nonetheless. And sometimes, as we all know, just being the veteran isn’t enough in ice hockey. Many teams defeat far superior teams purely thanks to better instinct throughout the game.
James Neal leads the team in total points and goals, while Nate Schmidt leads the team in assists. The Golden Knights have a strong roster.
The team is strong, especially in its defense. Fleury, the goalie, was very effective in stopping the goals. Nothing short of what one would expect.
On the other fronts, however, things aren’t equally satisfying. They need to improve many things. When the going gets rough, they can’t perform all that well. However, still, the Golden Knights are a solid team which can keep up the pace against similar opponents.
