The Vegas Golden Knights earned two points in the standings Thursday night in what Jonathan Marchessault called the team’s “best game of the season.” Beating the Pacific Division-leading Calgary Flames by five goals is no small feat. But the Golden Knights still have some work to do if they want to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

With only a handful of games remaining I figured we outta get straight to the updated standings after games now. So takeaways will be pushed to the next day. Stay tuned for that tomorrow.

Anyways the Stars, Predators, Oilers, and Canucks were all in action Thursday night. The Oilers defeated the Predators 4-0 with Leon Draisaitl scoring a hat-trick. The Dallas Stars were defeated in overtime by the Minnesota Wild. Frederick Gaudreau scored the overtime game-winner and was assisted on his goal by a guy named Marc-Andre Fleury. The Canucks curb-stomped the Coyotes 7-1.
