LAS VEGAS (AP) — After losing both games on a road trip, Vegas coach Gerard Gallant called a team meeting when the Golden Knights returned home. The goal was to get the defending Western Conference champs back on the same page with one another, reminding them what they’re capable of after reaching last year’s Stanley Cup Final. They responded Saturday night. Marc-Andre Fleury got his 50th career shutout, Brad Hunt and William Carrier scored their first goals of the season, and Vegas beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-0. “I thought (the meeting) was good, just to remind ourselves of what we have to do and who we are and how we have to play consistently,” Fleury said. “He didn’t go out there yelling at everybody, just straightforward, just honest, just making sure we simplify our game.

Source: Morguefile The annual curse, the perennial plunder, the bane of our existence. Every year with the most noble of intentions, we commit to a plan of improvement, a personal promise, which in all likelihood will ultimately fail. If you are like most mortals, in the next few weeks you will disdain the holiday revelry and commit to a healthy lifestyle that includes the elimination of bad habits, by echoing a renewal sentiment in the form of New Year's resolutions. Turning the calendar is a time for optimistic intentions, like the ethereal spring training dream of a frustrated Chicago Cubs fan waiting for a World Series win, we ardently believe, that this will be the year when our commitments will not wane.
