Recap: The Golden Knights hosted the Winnipeg Jets for the second time in the last ten days. The 1st period was tight on both ends of the ice. Neither team could find the back of the net and the game was locked in a scoreless tie after 20 minutes.
The game continued to tighten up in the middle frame. Both teams had several chances on net but each goaltender stood tall and kept the game in a scoreless lock.
The offense picked up in the 3rd period with the Jets picking up the first goal of the game. Mark Stone later tied the game to force overtime. Jack Eichel ended the game 2-1 with seconds remaining in OT.
The Golden Knights record improves to 8-2 defeating the Jets 2-1 in OT. Vegas will travel to the East Coast for a five game road trip starting in Washington DC. Tuesday’s game against the Capitals is scheduled for 4P PT. (Recap by Jason)
Analysis: The Golden Knights were absolutely brilliant for a majority of the hockey game, especially the first 40 minutes. They could not solve the mystery of Connor Hellebuyck and the posts but they continued to work even when falling behind. OT wasn’t my favorite, but Eichel pulled out the superhero cape and rescued it. VGK deserved to win, and they did. (Recap by Ken)
