Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Ottawa Senators to try and string together a two-game winning streak. The first 20 minutes were open with 32 shots combined.
Vegas took the first lead early in the middle frame when Jonathan Marchessault scored his 24th of the season. The Senators tied the game minutes later to take a 1-1 score into the 2nd intermission.
The 3rd period tightened up as both goaltenders were flawless. Late in the period, Vegas was awarded a power play which they took advantage of. Jack Eichel scored the game-winner with six seconds remaining. It was the center’s third goal as a Golden Knight.
The Golden Knights record improves to 32-21-4 defeating the Senators 2-1. Vegas will hit the road for the next five games starting in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Puck drop is set for 4 PM PT. (Recap by Jason)
Analysis: In a game that was described by Pete DeBoer as a “playoff-type game” the Golden Knights experienced some of the same issues they’ve seen in the actual playoffs. Luckily, in this one, they got an elite goaltending performance from Robin Lehner and were able to stick one in just before the horn. Not a ton to like about that game other than the fact that Vegas came out on top and Jack Eichel was the hero. (Recap by Ken)
