Neal named 3rd star in another Vegas win January 08, 2018
The Vegas Golden Knights won for a 7th straight game at home last night, and James Neal played a big role, scoring his 18th goal of the season in a 2-1 defeat of the New York Rangers. The 30-year-old winger would eventually go on to be named the 3rd star of the game. Named an assistant captain upon his arrival to the surprising expansion side, the Whitby-native has delivered the goods in the team’s inaugural season, tallying 29 points (including 18 goals) in 40 games to date, while providing a strong veteran presence on and off the ice.
