The Golden Knights are already the most successful expansion franchise the NHL has ever seen, and arguably the best story in all of sports. Now that they’ve got everyone’s attention, all eyes are watching as Vegas transitions from zero expectations to Stanley Cup contender.
Under first-year coach John Stevens, the Kings have regained some of the swagger that helped them capture a pair of Cups not so long ago. This is just Los Angeles’ second playoff appearance since its last title in 2014, but many of the names engraved on that Cup remain on the roster. At the very least, they’re a formidable opponent led by legitimate MVP and Norris candidates and a defense/goalie battery that can stifle a high-flying attack such as the one Vegas deploys.
The Kings emerged as the biggest rival for the Golden Knights during the regular season, so this series couldn’t have fallen into place any better for the NHL.

Brandon Schlager: Relatively speaking, the Kings were probably the Golden Knights’ toughest possible first-round draw in terms of matchup between the Ducks, Avalanche and Blues, having allowed the fewest goals per game in the league this season (2.46). Also not ideal: Marc-Andre Fleury, the driving force behind Vegas’ stellar season, doesn’t have the best track record in the postseason (.908 career save percentage). But the Golden Knights have feasted on older, slower opponents all season and play a stronger possession game than the Kings. All else equal, it’s not hard to imagine a close series in which fortune decides more than one outcome. At some point, reality will set in for the Golden Knights and their dream season will end, but we’ve been betting against them all year. This time, I say let it ride, at least for a little while longer.
Evan Sporer: Innocent until proven guilty, but man, it’s just really hard to continue to gamble on the Golden Knights (if you’ve ever been to Vegas, you know it’s always best to cash in while you’re ahead). The only problem here is, are you finally leaving the table on the Golden Knights miracle season, or finally beginning to buy into the expansion club’s hype? Anze Kopitar will smother the Jonathan Marchessault-William Karlsson-Reilly Smith line, and the Kings with Jeff Carter in the lineup have a much different look to them.
Jim Cerny: How far can the Golden Knights take the best year an NHL expansion team ever had? A first-place finish in the Pacific, third-best record in the West, an exciting, high-octane offense and a Stanley Cup-winning goaltender — what’s not to like from the Vegas point of view? Well, a distinct lack of playoff experience on the roster is one red flag, for sure. Sure, Karlsson exploded with 43 goals during the regular season, but how will he handle being the marked man, seeing the Kings checking line and top defenseman Drew Doughty nearly every time he’s on the ice? That’s just one example. The Kings have a host of Stanley Cup winners on their roster, among them front-line players in Kopitar, Doughty, Jonathan Quick and the reborn Dustin Brown. This makes the Kings an extremely difficult opponent for the Golden Knights.
