VANCOUVER CANUCKS 5 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4 (19-13-6 44 PTS) – OT

Recap: The Canucks got off a quick start, scoring the game’s first goal 2:49 into the game. Pesty Antoine Roussel controlled a rebound and buried it passed Marc-Andre Fleury. Vegas would go down two on a Vancouver power play goal. Jonathan Marchessault cut the lead in half with his 11th goal of the season. Unfortunately, the Canucks scored with :28 seconds to go in the period. After one, Vegas trailed 3-1.

Reilly Smith brought Vegas within one with his 14th goal of the season. Nick Holden tied the game 3-3 on a screened shot from the point. Vegas would fight off a late penalty and hold the tie after 40 minutes in the books.

Vancouver would regain the lead 4-3 midway through the final period. Elias Petterson scored his second goal of the game to give the home team the one goal edge. Mark Stone would tie the contest 4-4 on a beautiful catch and shoot with Max Pacioretty. The game would be settled in overtime. The Golden Knights comeback attempt came up short losing 5-4 in OT.

Vegas’ record drops to 19-13-6 with their OT loss against Vancouver. However, the team picked up a point and is now tied with Arizona for first place in the Pacific Division. The team travels to San Jose for another divisional matchup on Sunday night. Game time is scheduled for 7PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: Far from Vegas’ best game, the Golden Knights battled through it controlling play for most of the game despite chasing it. Fleury was not at his best and Markstrom was unbelievable. Considering the goalie discrepancy, getting a point is a win. Vegas now improves to 8-1-2 since going to VGKD 2.0. (Analysis by Ken)

    typo on 3 stars or u loved Stones game that much ?!? Perhaps a star for first line 3 guys combined 6 points combined . VGK fan living in Van-groovy

    • No, I thought Stone was that good. He should have had 4 goals himself and he created a ton more for others. He ended up with 2 points and the crucial game tying goal too.
