  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Garners helper in Game 5

    Karlsson put up an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Panthers in Game 5.

    Karlsson set up Reilly Smith's tally in the second period. That goal stood as the game-winner, and it was fitting that it was generated by three original Golden Knights -- Shea Theodore also had an assist on the play. Karlsson flew a bit under the radar compared to his teammates, but he finished the postseason with 11 goals, six assists, 44 shots on net and a plus-11 rating in 22 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Misses practice with illness

    Karlsson missed Wednesday's practice because of an illness, according to Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

    Karlsson is still probable for Game 3 on Thursday. It would be a big loss for Vegas if he isn't able to play, especially given that he's provided 10 goals and 15 points in 19 playoff contests this year. If Karlsson isn't available Thursday, then Teddy Blueger might draw into the lineup for the first time since May 25.
