It was the size difference — and depth in size and skill — that made the GoldenKnights simply too much for the NHLBlackhawks. Vegas, the first team to go through to Round 2, just came in too many waves for Chicago to hold on. (Via SportsnetSpec)

Tuch — a thick, six-foot-four, 220-pound winger — went wide on undersized Blackhawks defenceman Adam Boqvist — a five-foot-10, 180-pound Swedish youngster. The Vegas forward elbowed his way around Boqvist like a guy leaning on a revolving door, stuffing a puck past the beleaguered Corey Crawford for the goal that made it 4-3 Vegas.

It was the size difference — and depth in size and skill — that made Vegas simply too much for the Blackhawks in a series that featured three one-goal games, all won by the Golden Knights. Vegas, the first team to go through to Round 2, just came in too many waves for the Blackhawks to hold on. “We caught them on a change,” Tuch explained after the game. “I just jumped off the bench, got my legs going and took the puck to the net. Got a lucky bounce.”

An interesting stat: The Blackhawks were 89-8-5 all-time when Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews both score a goal in the same game in the regular season; 6-0 in playoffs, entering tonight. That stat went sour in Game 5, when both Blackhawks stars beat Robin Lehner, the goalie who was dealt from Chicago to Vegas at the trade deadline.

Survivors seize chance to confront Golden State KillerJoseph DeAngelo's victims are reveling in their chance to finally confront him in a courtroom, four decades after he committed 13 known murders and dozens of rapes that spanned much of California. Its good for the victims closer maybe, but i doubt someone whose serial raped and murdered woman has the ability to feel any remorse or empathy. Feel bad for all the families this monster destroyed. Great to see that after all those years, the police finally got him. He will die in prison.
