  • Golden Knights' James Neal: Lights lamp in second period

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/17/18) Neal scored a goal and assisted on another, helping the Golden Knights to a 4-2 win over Winnipeg in Game 3 on Wednesday.

    Neal was in the right spot at the right time when Connor Hellebuyck mishandled a puck behind the net, leaving Neal with the net open and an easy goal to put the Knights in control of the rest of the contest. But as big as that goal was, Neal only has three points in the Knights' past six games, two of which came Wednesday.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Records two assists as Vegas takes Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/18) Neal generated a pair of assists -- one came on a power play and the other held up as the game-winner -- in a Game 3, 4-3 overtime road win over the Sharks on Monday.

    Neal logged 21:47 of ice time and was blanked on four shots, but the veteran forward came alive in two key game situations. One of four alternate captains for Vegas, the 30-year-old will look to continue his clutch ways Wednesday for Game 4 at the Shark Tank. The expansion club has a 2-1 series advantage.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Two points in Game 1 rout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/27/18) Neal scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Thursday's 7-0 win over the Sharks in Game 1.

    The 30-year-old matched his scoring performance from the entire first round against Los Angeles in one game against San Jose, which is less surprising given that the entire Golden Knights offense did the same. Neal had some solid playoff performances during his Penguins days, including six goals and 10 points in 13 games in 2012-13, and he's now two postseason points shy of 50 for his career. Expect him to continue being a key cog in that scary Vegas offense as the Golden Knights look to sweep another foe.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Plays hero role in Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/18) Neal registered the game-winning goal Sunday in a 3-2 triumph over the Kings.

    Neal completely juked around Oscar Fantenberg before going five-hole on Jonathan Quick for his second point of these conference quarterfinals. It'll be interesting to see if Vegas retains the veteran this summer. He's cashing out the balance of a six-year, $30 million contract originally procured by the Penguins, and Neal -- a pending unrestricted free agent -- is one of five forwards on the Golden Knights averaging at least $5 million annually.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Back in action Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/18) Neal (hand) will return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Wild, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Neal has missed Vegas' last eight games due to a hand injury, but he was finally cleared for contact Thursday, which was the first indication he was likely on the brink of returning to game action. The Golden Knights will welcome the veteran winger back into their lineup with open arms, as he's been a consistent source of offense this season, notching 24 goals and 40 points in 59 contests. He'll return to his usual role skating on Vegas' top line and first power-play unit against Minnesota.
