The Vegas Golden Knights had a three-day break heading into Saturday night's home game with the Pittsburgh Penguins. And not surprisingly, Gerard Gallant's squad spent plenty of practice time working on the team's power play.
Vegas ranks 20th in the NHL on the power play with an 18.0 percentage and has converted just one of its last 30 chances. That includes going 0-for-6 in its last game, a 4-1 loss at Winnipeg on Tuesday night that included a five-on-three advantage for 50 seconds late in the second period when the Golden Knights had a season-high 26 shots on goal.
"You've got to keep working on stuff and try and get it going," Gallant said. "I thought they did a good job in Winnipeg. I thought they should have had three goals in that game. So keep working, keep plugging away and sooner or later it's going to go in.
