Recap: The Golden Knights hit the ice for the first time in five days to take on the Carolina Hurricanes at T-Mobile Arena. Midway through the opening period Jonathan Marchessault added to his team-leading goal total. Marchessault gave Vegas a 1-0 lead with his 28th tally of the season.
Carolina quickly evened the score at 1-1 in the middle frame. Carolina scored the period’s lone goal 1:21 into the period.

Carolina took a 3-1 advantage five minutes later, batting a puck down behind Adin Hill and into the net.

Analysis: It was a great start for the Golden Knights as they were generating dangerous chances at a great rate in the 1st. They could only sneak one through and ultimately that became a problem as the chances slowed down. Carolina’s depth started to wear on VGK’s and a shorthanded goal to start the 3rd was a killer.
