VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Defenseman Nate Schmidt overheard the discussion in the Golden Knights’ locker room Thursday and had to jump in.

“When you say ‘Star Wars,’” defenseman Shea Theodore said, “his eyes just light up.”

Schmidt is the biggest “Star Wars” fan on the Knights and has been eagerly awaiting the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” the final installment of the sequel trilogy that came out Thursday.

He said he is staying off social media and the internet as much as possible to avoid any spoilers before he sees the movie.

“We’re not going before Christmas. We couldn’t get everybody together to have it all work,” Schmidt said. “I am extremely excited. But I feel like there’s going to be such a hammer in the movie that it’s going to be so hard to get away from.”

When “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” debuted in theaters in 2017, Schmidt said several members of the organization went to see it together.

With the team currently hosting its fathers trip, Schmidt anticipates a similar outing once the team returns to Las Vegas.

William Karlsson and Alex Tuch are also big fans of the “Star Wars” movies, Schmidt said. But a number of their teammates confessed they barely know a lightsaber from the Buffalo Sabres.

“Is there a new movie coming out?” rookie defenseman Nic Hague asked.

“I’ve never seen any of them. How many are there?” Theodore said.

“I’ve seen ‘Spaceballs,’ ” Max Pacioretty said of the 1987 parody. “Never seen (a “Star Wars” movie) in my life. I get flak for that. Maybe eventually I’ll watch one.”

Eakin sighting

Injured center Cody Eakin (upper body) joined the Knights for their two-game road trip that concludes Sunday at San Jose.

Eakin, out since Nov. 29, was seen stretching before Thursday’s morning skate at Rogers Arena but has not resumed skating.

“Good sign,” coach Gerard Gallant said. “He’s not going to play on this trip, for sure, but, hopefully, get him back soon. He’s got stages to go through, and he’s working hard.”

Rosters frozen

The NHL’s annual holiday roster freeze began at 11:59 p.m. Thursday and lasts until 12:01 a.m. Dec. 28.

The rule prevents players on the active roster or injured reserve from being traded, waived or loaned. Teams can still make recalls if roster space is available and claim players who were waived before the freeze.

Protective father

William Carrier’s dad, Andre, was put to work by the Knights during the first day of the annual fathers trip. Andre Carrier interviewed Gallant after the morning skate and asked whether his son would be getting more ice time.

“He’s playing hard, he competes hard and he’s playing the same game every night,” Gallant responded. “A smarter coach would play him a little bit more, for sure.”

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Unofficially, New York Islanders dynamo Mathew Barzal had the puck on his stick for 54 consecutive seconds in overtime.

To Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt, it seemed much longer.

“It felt like an eternity,” Schmidt said.

Schmidt turned in a remarkable shift against the speedy Barzal in overtime of the Knights’ eventual 3-2 loss to New York on Thursday.

He chased and hounded and pestered and didn’t give an inch as the Islanders’ leading scorer probed for an opening that wasn’t there during 3-on-3 play.

“That is very satisfying as a defenseman, especially since that’s your matchup, right?” Schmidt said. “He’s an excellent player. He’s got a lot of moves to his game. He’s very shifty. He’s seen corkscrewing guys into the ice many times, and for me, at the end of it, it felt like it was five minutes long.”

Barzal gained possession a little more than 30 seconds into the overtime and went to work, patiently stickhandling near the blue line. His first two attempts to drive to the net were cut off by Schmidt, and Barzal retreated back to center ice.

After building up a head of steam, Barzal carried the puck back into the zone and was forced to circle the net by Schmidt. He hit the brakes but couldn’t ditch Schmidt and regrouped in the neutral zone for the second time.

Barzal eventually gave up trying to get around Schmidt and released the puck to Josh Bailey with about 3:30 remaining before heading to the bench. The scene was reminiscent of Schmidt’s work against Winnipeg’s Mark Scheifele during the 2018 Western Conference Final.

“It was two good skaters,” Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. “Barzal’s a talented hockey player, and when Nate plays his best hockey, he can skate with anybody.”

Schmidt remained on the ice and blocked a shot by New York’s Derick Brassard, which led to a scoring chance for Mark Stone at the other end. Schmidt did his best to join the rush but his legs wouldn’t allow it.

“The extra jump at the end when I tried to catch up with Stoney, I think I might have roasted my boosters for the next couple minutes,” Schmidt said. “It’s fun, though. That’s what you like.”

In all, Schmidt’s shift lasted 1:21, though he didn’t play the rest of the overtime. And without Schmidt defending, Barzal’s wizardry with the puck eventually wore down the Knights.

Forward Jonathan Marchessault couldn’t stay with Barzal on his next shift and took a tripping penalty with 1:50 remaining in overtime.

The Islanders scored the winner 10 seconds later when the Knights’ penalty killers all were caught in the corner and New York defenseman Ryan Pulock waltzed down the slot before beating goaltender Malcolm Subban from point-blank range.

“He’s a nice player,” Schmidt said of Barzal. “For me, I love that, because that’s what you want. You want that matchup. You want to be able go out and test yourself against one of the best players one-on-one in the league.”

The stories began to leak after the Toronto Maple Leafs relieved Mike Babcock from his coaching position. Former and current players spoke out about Babcock’s harsh, critical style hidden behind his success. Then more stories came out by past players, stories that were very concerning.

Akim Aliu

@Dreamer_Aliu78
Not very surprising the things we’re hearing about Babcock. Apple doesn’t fall far from the Tree, same sort of deal with his protege in YYC. Dropped the N bomb several times towards me in the dressing room in my rookie year because he didn’t like my choice of music. First one to

Akim Aliu broke open the door when he accused former coaches of being openly racist. Aliu’s claims were taken seriously enough that Calgary quickly parted ways with coach Bill Peters for his involvement a decade ago. They weren’t claims anymore, the nightmare stories by former players were sadly proven right. Peters resigned and the league is better for the swift actions.

Most teams got a chance to address the controversy over the past two weeks, so we thought it was time for the league to hear from some of the Golden Knights.

I wasn’t there in those situations but the Bill Peters thing, there’s no room for that on hockey. There’s no room for racism in the world at all.

Guys coming out saying that got yelled at, if you’re a hockey player you have to have tough skin. If you’re getting yelled at you probably just have to brush it off. I don’t know. All of these stories coming out about the past is a little weird but this stuff about berated guys, racism and that stuff is important and needs to be discussed and taken care of. -Ryan Reaves

Ryan Reaves didn’t hesitate to call out Peters for his racist actions but he doesn’t want the outpouring of other stories clouding Aliu’s serious accounts.

Akim Aliu comes out with the racism story, that’s an important subject. That’s something that needs to be dealt with but the four or five other stories that came out seems like they’re just trying to catch a story and try and be part of a story that isn’t really there. There are certain subjects that need to be dealt with and then there’s certain things that are just noise. -Reaves

Twelve year NHL veteran Max Pacioretty has had his share of uncomfortable moments in his career but he’s never witnessed any form of abuse.

I can’t relate to any of the negative stuff that’s been coming out but often times in a team sport environment you can’t always be everyone’s best friend. You got to pick your time and spots when to be hard on guys and I think that accountability is present on pretty much every good team. -Max Pacioretty

Same goes for #75, he’s never seen any of the accusations firsthand.

I’ve never been on a team that had that. I’ve seen coaches and players battle, and sometimes they didn’t quite like each other. There’s going to be heated moments, it’s a heated sport. Sometimes the emotions get the best of you but I’ve never been a part of anything that crossed the line. -Reaves

In his time in the league, Pacioretty has seen coaching styles change to better fit today’s athlete.

Yeah, I’ve definitely seen different approaches from coaches. They used to come down on the young guys in terms of being hard on them. It seemed there weren’t as many young guys on the team, and when they did come up, coaches wanted to make sure they weren’t too comfortable and they made sure they played the right way. Often times the old school mentality was to be hard on the young guys but I’ve never seen anything that was over the edge. I definitely had some hard coaches to play for, and at the end of the day, all of the hard coaches I played for were the ones I feel made me the best. -Pacioretty

Both Golden Knight players showed their concern and support towards the former players that were emotionally and physically abused by coaches but they were also concerned with the piling on. It gives the sport of hockey a black eye, maybe undeserved.

Just because it’s coming out in hockey only doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened in other sports. You can’t tell me that there haven’t been heated battles in football or basketball. You see it sometimes on the sidelines. But you don’t want to hear any of that for sure, it’s not good for the game. You want to be talking about the actual sport and what’s going on on the ice. -Reaves

Yeah, it’s no good for everyone. Some of the stories you can’t believe that stuff happened. It’s shocking. At the same time, I’ve had coaches yell at me. I’ve had some coaches say things to me that in the heat of the moment I was pretty upset about but at the end of the day no one’s crossed the line with me. Most coaches know how to handle their teams and individual players. -Pacioretty

Gerard Gallant has been coaching in the NHL for almost two decades, so he’s seen the old and new ways of handling players. However, in his eyes, he’s always had the same philosophy.

SinBin.vegas
@SinBinVegas
“You’re not coaching against your players, you’re coaching with your players.

I think if you ask my players what type of coach I am I think they feel like I’m a teammate of theirs. Can’t comment on anyone else but that’s the way I work.” -Gerard Gallant

His players absolutely agree with him, Gallant is just like one of them. A teammate. That style, Gallant’s style, is the changing of the guard. Coaches across the sport should approach their players the same way.

Community is a contact sport for the Vegas Golden Knights and the team showed that Monday when players visited pediatric patients at Summerlin Hospital and University Medical Center.

The players spent time with kids of all ages battling different illnesses that are keeping them hospitalized through the holiday season. The team took photos, signed autographs and delivered VGK gift bags for the kids.

Taking a step back from hockey and spending time with kids is something that defenseman Nate Schmidt said is just as rewarding to him and his teammates as it is exciting for the children.

“It’s a fulfilling time of the year to be out in the community and be with the kids,” Schmidt said. “It was great to be around the kids and share that Christmas spirit.”

For kids who don’t have a lot to smile about while receiving treatment, a visit from their local NHL is a way to forget about what they’re dealing with on a day-to-day basis for a few minutes. That smile is what it’s all about for defenseman Brayden McNabb.

“If we can put a smile on a couple of kids faces and make their day, that’s amazing,” McNabb said. “It’s fun for us to come and be able to do this.”

The individual moments the players share with patients are memories that both parties hold with them long after their brief interaction is over. For Schmidt, seeing a kid open up about things that make them happy warms his heart because it takes the conversation away from what has the child in the hospital in the first place.

“The first kid we met, his name was Michael, he was really shy, and he didn’t really want to talk much. But then his nurse came in and he was a bit more comfortable and he told us all about what he wants for Christmas,” said Schmidt.

As the holiday season continues, Schmidt said he felt the essence of what the season is all about with each moment he shared with a kid going through tough times.

“You’re a part of that room for that amount of time and that’s all that matters,” said Schmidt. “They’re excited, we’re excited and that’s why they call it the Christmas spirit.”

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) — Marc-Andre Fleury fans can soon take home a limited edition bobblehead figurine of the Vegas Golden Knights goalie.

“We’re excited to release this very unique bobblehead of Marc-Andre Fleury as part of the Player Riding series,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “Few goaltenders have been better than Fleury between the pipes and the arrival of the fan-favorite to Las Vegas made the Golden Knights an instant contender.”

The bobblehead figurine showcases Fleury riding on the landmark “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, and wearing a Golden Knights sweater goalie leg pads. He’s also depicted with his hands outstretched.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum produced the figurines.

Each bobblehead is individually numbered 2,019 and are available for purchase through the museum’s online store. Any orders placed before Dec. 19 are expected to arrive in time for Christmas.

The bobbleheads are $40 each, plus a flat shipping fee of $8 per order.

Fleury joined the Golden Knights in 2017 and is a four-time NHL All-Star who won a gold medal with Team Canada during the 2010 Winter Olympics. He entered this season with 439 victories and 56 shutouts in the regular season and 78 victories and 15 shutouts in the playoffs in his long career.

The Vegas Golden Knights extended their winning streak to three games with a 3-2 win against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena.

A two-goal second period helped the Knights defeat the Wild in regulation for the first time in franchise history.

However, it was Minnesota that got on the board first. Mats Zuccarello gave the Wild a 1-0 lead late in the first period on a 5-on-3 power-play opportunity. It was a sign of things to come, as the Knights played undisciplined hockey throughout the game, picking up five of the game’s six penalties.

Fortunately, Vegas rebounded with the next three goals, and the second line got things going.

In fact, Mark Stone picked up two primary assists for Vegas, including one on Chandler Stephenson‘s second-period goal, which tied the game at 1-1. Stephenson converted on a 2-on-1 a little over halfway through the second, beating Alex Stalock off a great feed from Stone.

The full-line goal for the second unit allowed all three players to extend their point streaks, and Stephenson tied his career-high in goals with his sixth of the season; he now has five points in eight games with Vegas.

Max Pacioretty extends his point streak to five games (5G, 4A).

Mark Stone extends his point streak to five games (1G, 6A).

Chandler Stephenson has three goals as a Golden Knights skater.

It looked like this game was headed to the third period at 1-1. But with 10 seconds left in the middle frame, Shea Theodore walked in and sniped a puck past Stalock to give Vegas its first lead of the game. It was Theodore’s first goal in 11 games.

This one is all Shea, as the young defenseman puts the puck low glove side. Reilly Smith probably helped a little, though, as he caused a distraction for Matt Dumba at the side of the net, which created a partial screen.

In the third period, Tomas Nosek would add another goal for Vegas, breaking a 13-game drought. William Carrier picked up the assist, his career-high 10th point on the season.

Zach Parise helped Minnesota pull within one at 18:45 of the third with Stalock on the bench, but Marc-Andre Fleury and the Knights held on for the 3-2 win.

Fleury made 27 saves on 29 shots in the game and also took a penalty, his third of the season.

The Golden Knights dominated possession in this game, beating Minnesota in shots at even strength in the first two periods but tying in the third (shots were nine to six in Vegas’ favor at 5-on-5, however). The Knights had a 51-38 Corsi advantage and 9-4 high-danger advantage at 5-on-5 as well.

Puck possession flow chart (5-on-5) Natural Stat Trick
While the second line contributed the most on the scoreboard, it was the first and fourth lines that drove possession for Vegas, as the trio of Smith, William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault had a 73.91 percent Corsi and 72.73 percent shot share at 5-on-5, while Ryan Reaves, Nosek and Carrier had a 66.67 percent Corsi and 33.33 percent shot share.

Despite the early power-play goal against, the Golden Knights’ penalty kill did okay for the rest of the game, limiting chances to outside- and long-range attempts where Fleury stood a better chance of making saves. That’s something the Knights likely wish they had been able to do on the 5-on-3 in the first, but with two of their best penalty killers in the box (Smith and Stone), they were unable to.

Minnesota special teams shot locations
Max Pacioretty’s four-game goal streak ended in this contest, as he was unable to tie the five-game record set by Erik Haula and Karlsson from the inaugural season. Pacioretty had two shots and an assist, though.

This was Vegas’ first franchise win over the Wild at T-Mobile Arena, and the Golden Knights had previously spent very little time with a lead against Minnesota on home ice. Vegas was up for the entire third period in this one, however.

Vegas has also now won three home games in a row, and the Knights are 8-2-1 in their last 11 games.

The team has gotten hot at the right time, and tonight’s win helps Vegas move back to second place in the Pacific Division, passing Edmonton in the standings. Arizona still has a slight edge over Vegas after defeating the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night, though.

The Golden Knights next face the Canucks in Vancouver on Thursday.

David Perron, Vegas Golden Knights

Perron played a significant role in the Golden Knights’ regular-season success. Skating on the second line with Neal and Erik Haula, the veteran winger led the club in assists (50), while his 66 points in 70 games ranked third.

An upper-body injury sidelined Perron for the final six games of the regular season and first two games of the opening round, and an illness kept him out of two games during the Western Conference Final. He’s been limited to just seven points (all assists) in 11 playoff contests.

With time to rest between the conference final and Stanley Cup Final, Perron might be able to put his recent health issues behind him. If so, he could provide a big boost to the Golden Knights offense.

Tom Wilson, Washington Capitals

Every team has an agitator who can get under his opponent’s skin. Skating on the Capitals’ top line with Ovechkin and Kuznetsov, Wilson has done a fine job driving opponents to distraction. A hustling, physical forward who doesn’t shy away from the rough stuff, the 6’4″, 218-pounder has also tallied 11 points in 16 postseason contests.

Wilson’s sometimes undisciplined antics, though, can result in costly penalties. During the second round, he received a three-game suspension for a hit to the head of Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese, who missed the last three games of the series.

When focused, however, Wilson can turn the tide of a game with a goal, a well-timed hit or a fight. He could become a crucial factor for the Capitals in their drive for their first Stanley Cup championship.

The Golden Knights Will Win If…
5 OF 7

Marc Sanchez/Associated Press
Fleury maintains his stellar form between the pipes, they get more from their secondary scorers and improve their faceoff win percentage.

Fleury’s performance is the talk of the playoffs. His stellar goaltending has offset the high number of shots (33.7 per game) Vegas has given up. He’s also a big reason why it has the fourth-best penalty-killing percentage (82.5) entering the Final.

The Golden Knights’ aggressive forechecking system has also been a crucial part of their success. Still, they could use more production beyond their top line of center Karlsson and wingers Marchessault and Reilly Smith. They’re the only Golden Knights’ scorers with double-digit point totals.

More troubling for Vegas is its performance in the faceoff circle. Its 47.8 faceoff win percentage is third-worst among postseason clubs. That could adversely affect it on the power play and in penalty-killing situations. If the Golden Knights can improve that stat, it may be a crucial factor in their first Stanley Cup victory.

The Capitals Will Win If…
6 OF 7

Chris O’Meara/Associated Press
Their scoring punch stays strong, Holtby out-duels Fleury and they do a better job of killing penalties.

Led by playoff scoring leaders Kuznetsov and Ovechkin, the Capitals possess both the second-best goals per game average (3.47) and second-best power-play percentage (28.8). Seven players—Kuznetsov, Ovechkin, Backstrom, John Carlson, T.J. Oshie, Lars Eller and Wilson—have double-digit point totals. They’ll be tough for the Golden Knights to contain.

Among goaltenders who’ve played more than four games, Holtby is second to Fleury in goals-against average, tied for second in shutouts and third in save percentage. He’s outplayed such notables as Columbus’ Sergei Bobrovsky, Pittsburgh’s Matt Murray and Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy. If Holtby outperforms Fleury in this series, Washington could win its first Cup.

The Capitals’ penalty-killing percentage (75.4) ranks 10th among postseason clubs. While the Golden Knights’ power play (17.6) is also 10th, their energetic forecheck could prove a handful for Washington’s penalty killers. In what could be a closely contested Cup Final, killing penalties could make the difference.

Prediction
7 OF 7

Ethan Miller/Getty Images
One of these teams will skate away as the Stanley Cup champion, and the other will just skate away.

Winning the Cup would provide a Hollywood ending to an amazing first season for the Vegas Golden Knights. After their dominating regular-season and playoff performances, they enter this series as slight favorites, per OddsShark. They’re a well-built, well-coached, hard-working team that hit the ground running in its first season and appears to have a bright future.

Meanwhile, the Capitals have emerged after years of disappointment and criticism. Ovechkin, one of the greatest scorers in NHL history, needs a Stanley Cup to complete his impressive resume. This could be the last, best opportunity for him and his teammates to win it all.

With Ovie performing like a man on a mission and the Caps playing well at both ends of the rink, they should have enough to overcome the plucky Golden Knights.

TORONTO – Who expected Buffalo Sabres defenseman Colin Miller would be a healthy scratch once this season, let alone six times before December?

But a crowded blue line – the Sabres have seven healthy defensemen, including five right-handed shots – forced them to bench one in eight recent games.

Miller, 27, was usually the odd man out.

“I’m not getting many bounces lately,” Miller said prior to Saturday’s 2-1 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs inside Scotiabank Arena.

After returning for Friday afternoon’s 6-4 home win over the Leafs, Miller played again Saturday, the second straight game the Sabres have dressed seven defensemen.

Miller hadn’t played consecutive contests since Nov. 8-9.

When the Sabres traded two draft picks to the Vegas Golden Knights for Miller on June 28, it seemed like a steal.

Not only had Miller played for the Stanley Cup in 2018, he was a major contributor to the expansion team’s shocking season, scoring 10 goals and 40 points.

Salary cap problems forced Vegas to deal Miller and the four-year, $15.5 million contract he signed in 2018.

As the Sabres roared out of the gate this season, Miller enjoyed regular duty beside Rasmus Dahlin, skating around 19 minutes most nights.

But after the Sabres started struggling and Zach Bogosian and Brandon Montour returned from their injuries, coach Ralph Krueger began scratching Miller.

“It (stinks),” Miller of sitting out. “Nobody wants to but … you treat it like a pro and you come in and work hard every day, control what you can. That’s what I’ve tried to do.”

Krueger wouldn’t get into specifics why he scratched Miller, who compiled a minus-7 rating in his eight outings before sitting out.

“We have a high competition in the defense right now,” he said. “He just has to continue to work the way he is and he’ll feel more and more comfortable in our system.”

Krueger said every player – he also scratched defensemen Jake McCabe and Marco Scandella – “has handled sitting out really well.”

“In the team meetings, you wouldn’t know who the guys are who are in or not as far as the engagement is concerned,” he said.

Miller’s status as the seventh defenseman the last two games forced him to play on the left side – right-handed shots normally stay on that side – with Henri Jokiharju or Rasmus Ristolainen.

Before a few outings this season, Miller said he had only played on the left side once or twice as a pro.

“It’s different and … not a situation you’re normally in,” said Miller, who had registered zero goals and four assists in 20 games this season entering Saturday. “Normally teams have less right-handed defensemen. … It was a little different, but it’s been going OK.”

Krueger said: “We actually like Colin’s game on the left side. We see him as a real option there. It’s, with our sticks at the moment, something we need to know.”

The biggest adjustment to playing on the left side, Miller said, is facing the rush.

“You’re more to guys coming down on (the) right side, whereas the left side you’re not as used to it,” he said.

There are, of course, positives.

“In the offensive zone, you can walk the (blue) line a little bit easier, you get it on your forehand and you’re on your one-timer,” said Miller, who possesses a lethal shot. “So there’s pros and cons.”

The Sabres have dressed seven defensemen and 11 forwards five times in the last seven games.

“I’ve actually always liked it as a coach,” Krueger said of dressing an extra defenseman. “I’ve used it lots of times in the past. It gives you options to really mix different guys into the lineup. You see the top-end guys don’t get extra ice time out of it. It’s more of a sharing of guys that sometimes don’t get the minutes, and I think they’re more into the game when they do that.”

Sabres rookie center Rasmus Asplund on the penalty shot he received with 0.9 seconds left in Friday’s game: “If it’s 0.9 seconds left or it’s the first shift in first, I think he made the right call.”

Leafs goalie Michael Hutchinson stymied Asplund’s backhand attempt. As Asplund zoomed in on goal, it looked like he was trying to shoot the puck between his own legs.

“I just thought that was a time and place to try something cool,” the Swede said.

The Sabres scratched center Jean-Sebastien Dea and winger Curtis Lazar (both healthy).

Fleury was granted personal leave by the team after the passing of his father. He last played Nov. 23, a 4-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers, and left the team Nov. 26 to travel to Quebec.

Fleury rejoined the team last Thursday, but didn’t play in losses to the New York Islanders and New York Rangers, with Malcolm Subban making the starts. All told, Subban started seven games in Fleury’s absence.

The Blackhawks look to extend their point streak to four games when they start their three-game road trip against the Golden Knights on Tuesday night in Las Vegas.
