VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 6 VANCOUVER CANUCKS 3 (18-13-5 41 PTS)

Recap: The Golden Knights welcomed in divisional foe Vancouver Canucks to a Sunday afternoon matchup. The game got off to a quick start for both teams. Nick Holden wristed his third goal of the season giving Vegas the early 1-0 lead. Elias Pettersson tied the game on a nice second effort goal passed Marc-Andre Fleury. Vegas was awarded two power plays in the 1st period and Valentin Zykov capitalized on one of them to give the Golden Knights a 2-1 lead.

Jonathan Marchessault gave Vegas a two goal lead early in the 2nd period on a beautiful tick-tack-toe play with his linemates. Mark Stone would join the party tallying his 12th goal of the season giving Vegas a 4-1 lead.

Vancouver would get on the board and trim the lead in half early in the 3rd period. Max Pacioretty scored Vegas’ fifth of the night continuing his hot streak. He would add another later. With his goals, Pacioretty has scored 8 points in his last four games. The Golden Knights would go on to beat Vancouver 6-3.

Vegas’ record improves to 18-13-5 as they slide into second place in the Pacific Division. The Golden Knights will next host the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. Game time is set for 7PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights put together a great effort from start to finish in this one. They moved through the neutral with ease in the 1st and controlled the puck in the 2nd. Defensively wasn’t perfect at the start of the 3rd, but they righted the ship and held on to the win easily. Completely outclassed a Pacific Division opponent. (Analysis by Ken)

  1. The REAL Golden Knights showed up tonight. It just goes to show they can dominate when they want to bad enough ( pride & attitude). The difference this year to their first is that bunch had something to prove and prove they did – they took loosing seriously and put the required effort in to correct the situation. Great win today – keep it going – it much easier than having to make excuses, which by the way you guys aren’t particularly good at starting at the top..

    great grinding effort tonight. Zykov finally delivered some production. Max P is on fire. the whole team was excellent. exception McNabb who was MINUS 2 and also was in the penalty box for goal 3.

    The key though is winning at home. They have not done it much this season, and this 2 game streak is hopefully the start of something big.
